Pod shoes

When I was a kid, Pod shoes were the in thing at school. They came in all different colours - I think yellow, blue and red were the most popular - and they were like Clark's and Startrite sensible buckle shoes but were some how 'cool' because they had a pod sign on the back. They also came with a leather 'pod man' attached that was the same colour as the shoes, but we always swapped these amongst ourselves so we had a different colour. I loved mine and I'm sure Pod are missing a retro trick not bringing them back. I'd buy another pair now if I could. Anyone else remember them?

    Wish we could still get the pod sandals we wore in the 80s these were so comfy and I am sure my teenagers would wear them too.

    Hi, I've been trying for years to buy pod 'slip ons' as we called them back in the 80's, they were great! I'd love to buy some more, does anyone know if they are available

    Hi everyone, sorry for lack of posts. The Pod Heritage re-launch is now. We've re-launched the original Pod shoes starting with the Pin-Punch design. Next year we'll be re-launching the Quilted shoe. The collection is available at www.podheritage.co.uk We have developed the ladies' sandals and we do have some samples...however they haven't yet made it to production, perhaps when the re-launch develops they'll make it into the shops! We will also be holding a secret sample sale online in the next week where we will have a few pairs of the ladies' samples (size 37). Will keep you updated!

    I've been trying to track a pair of retro pods down for years. I had them for school shoes in the late 80's grey with two buckles and a white pod man. Wore them out, would love them to be brought back, original design not like the 'new' beetle, mini or fiat 500. Is there a campaign to bring them back? If not there should be...
