A Special Delivery

Museums like to shop too! These classic Italian driving moccasins arrived into the museum last week in this immaculate packaging. The V&A purchased the vibrant pair online, and like any other shopper we took our time selecting the most appealing shade and size.

For many people the classic driving moccasin is synonymous with the Italian maker, Tods. The distinctive rubber soles are called ‘gommini’ in Italian, literally meaning ‘rubber nipples’. They will join other examples of fine shoe craftsmanship in the forthcoming The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014.
