ARMANDO CABRAL is proud to unveil this season’s collaboration with TODD SNYDER, a partnership that has been years in the making. Featuring three exclusive styles, ARMANDO CABRAL x TODD SNYDER is a capsule that embodies the relaxed spirit and sophisticated style of modern men’s footwear while delivering on both form and function.
Longtime friends—as a model, Armando has been the face of Todd Snyder since 2014—it was only fitting that the designers would eventually join forces to create an exclusive offering. After design meetings and deliberations over leathers, silhouettes and customization ideas, a thoughtful capsule emerged that embodies their distinct visions and symbiotic approach to men’s footwear design.
Once in production, The TODD SNYDER team invited Armando to star in their campaign set in his home city of Lisbon, Portugal. The shoot, styled by Jim Moore and lensed by Kenny Thomas was the perfect showcase for the partnership.
“Todd Snyder and I share a friendship and passion for great style. We both admire each others design and brands so it was natural that we came together to craft a curated collection of footwear that’s Spring and Summer ready.’’
The result is an edited collection that offers essential styles to take you through the spring and summer seasons. Designed to complement Todd Snyder’s SS23 collection, this collaboration features the QUEBO zip-pouch slipper, the MANJAK sandal, and the BALANTA slip-on espadrille.
Compact with a dash of clever, the QUEBO is an iconic travel slipper that is conveniently presented in a zippered pouch for safe and simple storage. Available in brown and navy leather, this version also features a navy zipper thread. An ideal solution for summer travels and weekend getaways.
After nearly two years since releasing his last sandal, the MANJAK is unveiled, created exclusively for TODD SNYDER. With thick, criss-crossed leather straps, and a footbed that molds to the foot for a custom fit, these are a classic choice that can be dressed up or down depending on your day.
The handsome BALANTA espadrille is a favorite silhouette for a sophisticated summer fit. Made with a cushioned crepe sole and elasticized vents, each step is fully supported and allows the shoe to move with you for a comfortable stride all day long.
“It was an honor to host the Todd Snyder team in my home-city of Lisbon, Portugal for the Spring/Summer shoot. Something we had been talking about doing since we first started collaborating.’’
In keeping with the quality and craftsmanship of our seasonal footwear collections, each of these styles are crafted in Italy, made by artisans whose time-honored approach and expert care shines through in every pair.
A huge thank you to the team @toddsnyderny for a beautiful shoot.
