Tom Ford launching luxe trainer collection
The dapper designer takes a walk on the sporty side
Tom Ford — famous for his luxuriously tailored looks — has now officially entered the luxury trainer business. This autumn the designer will launch his new collection of sporty footwear for men, with a choice of high and low-top models in seven colours of leather and five in soft velvet.
Each shoe is manufactured in an Italian workshop by artisan cobbles who spend a week stitching, polishing and then resting the leather for ten days where the shape of the shoe is made. After which they are hand polished over a three-day period.
Both the leather and velvet models feature white rubber soles, with prices that range from $690 for the velvet low-tops to $990 for the leather high-tops. The shoes will be available at the Tom Ford stores in New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas.
