Made for walking

Nendo takes inspiration from a hiking boot for their Urban Trekker, designed for the modern man's needs.

From the Series

Not only good for walking, the Urban Trekker is a tool for contemporary urban life.

Japanese design studio Nendo has collaborated with Tod’s, an Italian shoe brand known for their signature combination of leather uppers and rubber soles, to create a shoe that is ideal for the modern man.

The shoe design is based on a sophisticated form reminiscent of classic Tod’s styles, while sporting a new modern edge.

We wanted to fuse the functionality of hiking boots with respect for the brand’s heritage, says Nendo.

The Urban Trekker takes inspiration from hiking boots and is made from traditional premium leather and rubber soles. The shoes are available in four distinct colours.
