Are Tod's Loafers Really Worth $500? | Tod's Gommino Drivers

As the owner of two pairs of Tod’s iconic Gommino driving shoes, I can attest to their stylishness. For me, they are the epitome of casual sophistication – they just look great. There’s a reason you perpetually see them included in best loafers roundups. But beyond the superficial, they’re super comfortable as well. What’s not to love?

Well, I’ll tell you, though if you’ve ever owned a pair, you already know that your relationship with the Gommino can be a complicated and frustrating one. Why?

They wear out. In and of itself, this is not a terrible thing. All shoes wear out, after all. But my Tod’s shoes seem to wear out much more quickly than any other pair I’ve had. And it’s always on the heel, which never looks good.

I’ve done a fair amount of studying up on Tod’s wearing out and it’s worth remembering that not all Tod’s are made for walking. The classic Gommino, which just has the nubs, is not a walking shoe. The City Gommino, on the other hand, has a rubber sole, which makes it much better for bumping around the city.

One of the questions that people routinely ask related to the shoes wearing out is: are they better if used for driving only? I’d say, not necessarily.

As I mentioned, one of the reasons I love my Tod’s is that they are so comfortable. Hanging around the house, on a plane (or train), and, yes, when I’m driving. When I had my manual transmission 3 Series, it was nice to be able to really feel the clutch. Yet when driving, the heel is getting a lot of wear. And since that always seems to be the first part of my Tod’s that wears out, I find that there is absolutely no longevity benefit if they’re just worn situationally for driving.

Now, if that situational wearing was just as a stylish slipper substitute around the house or lounging around your resort on vacation, that would probably be a different story.

I contacted the Tod’s store on Madison Avenue to see what the options were in terms of getting the shoes repaired. The good news is that they can be repaired. The store recommended an outside shoe repair shop that they always use – repairs aren’t done in-house or by the brand, though if you have an issue soon after buying, they will evaluate whether or not to warranty the shoes – and here’s how it’s dealt with.

If the wear or damage is to the sole, the pebbles will be removed and a rubber sole applied, making your regular Gommino more or less the city version. In the case of the wear or damage being to the heel you have two options: they can wrap the heel in rubber or they can replace the worn leather with another piece. So the choice is to give up a little of the stylishness for more durability in the case of rubber or know that you’ll have to get them fixed again when the new leather wears out. It’s a choice you need to make for yourself.

So, the big question: are Tod’s shoes worth it? Again, this is a question only you can answer for yourself. You need to weigh a few things – the cost, how often you want to wear them and if you’re willing to accept the fact that they’ll wear out and will need to be repaired (or discarded).

The model we have here it's called Laccetto Gommini and it retails for $495 in the US. It is of course made in Italy but other than the fact that it has some laces, leathers, and rubber nub sole, there's really not much more information on their website. Considering, it's almost $500 expensive, I find that quite disappointing.

The shoe has the characteristic rubber pebble nubs that allow the shoe the same flexibility as it would be with an all leather sole. At the same time, it lasts longer than a just leather sole moccasin. Of course, the lifespan is still shorter compared to a regular men's dress shoe with a leather sole or rubber sole.

Because $495 is quite a bit of money for just a driving shoe, a lot of men also wear them as casual shoes, especially during the summer. The problem is without the structured heel cap and toe cap, they're not ideal for walking. They get bigger and the leather sole wears out a lot faster.

The one we ordered comes in a nice blue and I think it's made of a shrunken calf leather or cowhide, again, nothing's mentioned on the website but if you take a closer look, you can see it has somewhat of a scotch grain texture but it's not achieved by embossing it but simply by shrinking the leather. I find it's quite nice and it's also a little more durable than suede leather which is also something they offer.

It's really nothing special on the inside and for the price, I would have hoped for a bit more contrast or something interesting. The insole is covered with one piece of leather lining and underneath, you can find a rubber wedge that is a little cushier and more comfortable to stand in them. At the same time, it's not made all of leather like the most high-quality men's dress shoes, for example.

Each pair of Tod's mocs is made out of 35 pieces in a hundred steps.

So the big question, are Tod's mocs worth it?

First, let's look at the cons.

To me, one of the biggest cons is that it's not a shoe
that will last me 15 or 20 years if I regularly wear it because it has this leather sole with the rubber pebbles which is super flexible but it also wears out very quickly if I use it in everyday wear.

Also, it's not a shoe you want to wear when it's wet outside because the water will go right through the leather up onto your socks and feet which is quite uncomfortable.

At the end of the day, buying Tod's driving mocs is still mostly a brand buy. Fortunately, the Tod's branding is not obnoxious.

Looking at the shoe, the construction method, the materials that go into it, I think it should retail more at a 200 to 250 dollar price range and not at a 500 dollar price range. But of course, when it comes to pricing, branding is everything and Tod's does a fantastic job in positioning their brand and maintaining high prices.

So what are the pros?

Even though the shoe can wear out pretty quickly, the style itself is rather timeless and you'll be able to wear it in 10 or 20 years down the line. Even though you would assume other brands can simply replicate the style, I still think Tod's has an edge when it comes to their styling versus other brands in the market.

One of the biggest pros of Tod's mocs is probably that they come in a large number of colors in different leathers including suede and exotic skins such as crocodile. To my knowledge, there is no other brand that offers such a wide range.

So ultimately, are they worth it to me?
