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 #C12139

    His shoes
    My husband absolutely loves these shoes! His feet are wide and the width is perfect for him.

    I have a few pairs of horse bits from Cole Haan and I wear little else to work. They look smart and are comfortable. I like the hybrid driver look as well on these, looking forward to wearing these.

    Perfect shoe for business casual dress for my son who is finishing his sophmore year at Clemson University. He can wear these with khaki's for his summer internship at Borg Warner in Seneca. These are his fourth pair of the Grand Canoe shoes.

    They look nice!

    I love the way the horse bit dresses up the driver! My husband is more comfy in drivers than loafers so he always wears them out - cole haans seem to last the longest!

    I like the bit and the brown grain.

    I wear Cole Haan Grants for 5 year in a row now. One pair lasts me little over a year as street/car shoes and then I wear them at home. Very light, super combortable, stylish.

    MARIGENE D on Sep 22, 2015
    Very nice loafer that looks great with jeans anytime or with shorts in the summer. I feel really great about them & get looks/compliments, every time I wear them. The polished chrome bit gives them an air of sophistication that is eye-catching, without being too much. Oh & they're super comfortable! I highly recommend getting a pair of loafer socks to keep your feet dry--just Google them, they'll change your loafer life, lol.
    Michael P on Sep 5, 2015

    Kyle K on Aug 4, 2015
