Tom Ford Enters the Sneaker Game

Tom Ford’s latest creation is his first ever collection of sneakers for his label. Ford has created 12 styles that come in high and low-top versions in various materials and colors. The entire collection set to arrive in stores in the fall, meanwhile few are available online and in store.

Collection features low-tops in leather and velvet priced $790 and $690 respectively, while high-tops in leather and velvet are priced $990 and $890.

All shoes are handmade in Italy. The lengthy production process includes a ten day ‘resting’ period for the leather to get in shape and an additional three days of hand polishing. Leathers are available in seven shades, while velvets come in five colors. White rubber soles are a common theme in all models.

The Tom Ford sneaker collection will go on sale at label’s American boutiques in New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas as well as the London and Milan stores in Europe in the fall.
