Bought these last year. I guess this is what you're complaining about?

Yes, if you look at them, the first has a round shape to the shoe, though the toe is square, while the second looks square the entire way through. Could be my imagination, so I don't know. Also, a lot of the new ones are duck billed looking as they get really flat toward the toe, but not all of them are like that.

The round toe is the classic one, but only in a pebble grain.

- OK the "new" or Penny one is a limited edition? The other one is still available (I know as I just bought a pair recently & I hated the penny one)

I got those from Yoox last fall. They're very insubstantial. I sent them back.

I have these as well - they're as light as the Sutors, but the leather sole makes them feel like they'll hold up much better.

I bought these recently, which may be close to what you're looking for:

The best Tod's, IMO, are the PG Special - one piece forefoot with nubs, leather dress heel. I'm sure PG will oblige with a photo.

edit: here they are: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...ostcount=35533


And Matt - what you really need for the summer are these

I have two things to say about that. First, this new pair I've only worn once so it has not had time to round out the toe. Second, that older pair also had a shoe tree shoved up it's innards for many years which may have made it look rounder. If I were to flip the shoe over so you see the sole, you'll see that it's pretty square. More so than the front top would indicate.

In any case, my point still stands. Squares are Tod's signature style. I also agree that this season's style really suck. They have the fake Tod's penny in the penny loafer which you can't remove and the colorful suede driving mocs that are so 80's.

I like their insubstantialness. They're drivers. Too substantial defeats the purpose.

I received my TODS loafers today...they are very 90's looking and made like crap...back they go.

I don't understand these. What are all the little dildo-ish rubber nubs for? Why does the heel of the sole round up and extend up the back of the shoe? Is this truly a design feature for braking/accelerating?

The qulity really bugs me on their shoes...their bags are great...their shoes are just junk...I am not sure who makes a worse $400 shoe, them or Prada?

I think Tod's gets a lot of mileage ( and higher prices ) because of their name recognition.

Sort of like Mephisto's as walking shoes. I do like Phat Guido's picture of the new version of Tods.

If it's value that you want, you can probably do better. Like aportnoys RLPL's from GVH. But if you must have Tod's, then you'll pay the price.

That's too bad. As far as drivers/loafers go, Tods makes my favorite. I own 3 pair.
