Additional Information

Rubber, meet road. Originally designed for racecar drivers and then adopted by upper class motorists, these slipper-like loafers were just too good to keep in the car.

They say jet-setting Europeans were the first to wear them as street shoes, pioneering the trend in summertime St. Tropez. By the 1960s, the look had caught on everywhere, making them a warm weather favorite on every continent. Ours are crafted using a traditional moccasin construction—a time-tested technique that started in New England. This method ensures that the exceptionally plush leather wraps around the entire foot, cradling it for a sock-like fit. Drivers generally feature one of two kinds of soles. The more traditional styles are nubbed (also called punch-through because of the way the nubs come through the leather outsole); these are more flexible and have a barefoot feel. The second type, called a unit outsole, is more substantial, and built from a single piece of rubber.


  • Leather upper.
  • Hand sewn on the last moccasin construction.
  • Unlined upper; plug lined in leather.
  • Unique, flexible rubber nubby driving sole and heel protector.
  • Style #C12398

    Needs to be wider for the larger sizes
    The shoe is very narrow but I'm hoping it willl stretch as I break them in. The look is cool, but it needs more cushion in the sole.

    Darrick D on Oct 30, 2016
    I own this already in a different color, and I liked it enough when the 40% sale hit I had to pick up another pair. Great shoe, looks more expensive than what it costs.

    My older teenage son wanted "Ferragamo's." Well after showing him these, I was able to change his mind and assured him the quality and designer was just as good . In the end, the savings was my pleasure!!!

    Bryan R on Nov 15, 2015
    I have a pair the Grant Canoe Penny's and have really liked them. Getting a bit worn as I have them on me feet at some time every day. Liked the fit and sole of the Penny, but just needed a change in style. Having choices in colors and styles in size 14 are welcome options for me!

    chose for my husband for the classic style which he has many Cole Haan loafers, and wanted the rubber sole since he does a lot of city walking.
