Is this the new Gommino? The Sportivo from Tod’s is effectively a modernised low-top baseball sneaker, made luxurious with various finishes and materials. There are versions in muted navy suede (£330), and in white leather with a nicely contrasting raffia sole (£340); another in washed calfskin “chrome” tanned leather (£375), an effect achieved with black aniline cream hand-brushed on to create a vintage patina – like you might find on metal tools used over many years – and yet another that boasts a pattern of small Ts stamped into cotton canvas (£330), forming a weave-like pattern that carries through to the traditional sandwich sole. All are leather-lined. They work best with denims and luxe tailored jogger bottoms.
