The new casuals // SS18 Pod Heritage collection
Wednesday, 28 February 2018 | Admin
This season introduces a fresh new colour range to the original Pod sandal collection, including Bright White, Sage Green, Cardinal Red and previous sell-out, Baby Pink. Following demand, SS18 also sees the much anticipated re-launch of the 1980s single strap design Moss, in limited edition Petrol Blue leather.
Originally launched in the early 1980s as a basic school shoe and subsequently adopted by fashion’s casual culture as a footwear staple, the T-bar sandal became one of Pod’s most iconic and colourful designs.
Today, through meticulous product development with creative guidance from the original designer, the T-bar sandal preserves its authenticity. Fundamental details such as the 1977 Jubilee flag, perforated vamp, original back counter Pod logo and distinctive buckles remain at the core of the design. Completed by the retro ‘Podman’ swingtag.
Beyond its retro appeal, the sandal achieves supreme comfort as a result of Pod’s unique bag-lasted construction; a complex Veldtshoen technique designed to naturally increase comfort and moulding through wear. Ultra-soft leather uppers create a slipper-like feel and cushioned flex soles add a bounce to each step.
The collection will be available from late February to early March.
