Driving shoes have been around nearly as long as drivers have. Since the 1930s coblers have designed driving shoes for such races as Italy’s Mille Miglia or Circuito del Garda. The racers needed agile but durable shoes to climb into thier Bugatti or Alfa Romeo and guide four wheels at top speeds through the countryside. They also needed courage, strength, endurance… and comfortable shoes that were as much an engineering marvel as the cars themselves. Our driving shoes are the most comfortable shoes you'll ever try on. But most importantly, these drivers are durable. Over the years the "majors" have been producing their shoes in 2nd tier countries, and their shoes fall apart after a weeks worth of use. Our shoes, produced soley in Italy, will practically last you a life time.
