Tod’s is a luxury brand that seems to go unnoticed in Tucson, especially in resale stores. Yet, its Italian roots are as storied as Ferragamo and Missoni. The brand was founded in 1920 by Filippo Della Valle in his basement but made its way into American department stores by the 1970s. Today, Tod’s still produces handcrafted leather driving shoes and bags made with the highest-quality materials and techniques. Chairman Diego Della Valle—the founder’s grandson– continues to bank on this tradition. Della Valle has also donated millions of euros toward the restoration of the Coliseum in Rome. You can expect Tod’s goods to be of sterling quality and the brand continues to have stores all over the world. So, if you see Tod’s signature shoes and bags in resale stores here, you should snap them up!
