Founded in London, in 1976. The POD name derived from an acronym for ‘Product of Desire’. POD challenges expectations of what a British shoe should be, striking the balance between rich heritage and progressive fashion designs. The original, cult POD style, Jagger, was created as a reaction against the platform shoes and flares trend that had become popular in the early 1970s.
The POD collection is designed in England and manufactured in Portugal; in the same factory the collection was first produced with in the 70’s. The factory was founded 1935 and is today’s oldest shoe factory in Portugal, so they know a thing-or-two about high-quality shoes.
