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.

hey 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 soft denim material 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.
  • Flexible rubber nubby driving sole and heel protector.
  • Style #C12125

    They are a little snug when first purchased but the leather tends to stretch and form to your foot over time. Very comfortable shoes

    Nice shoe
    Nice shoe. They are very comfortable with the nice soft insoles. I'm anxious to see how well they hold up to every day wear. However a little pricey.

    A smart looking shoe
    An alternative to the boat shoe or penny loafer is the driving moccasin. Go down half a size because (1) the shoe looks best when worn with a thin no-show sock liner and because (2) the shoe will stretch with use. Papaya is a misleading name; it is British tan – a versatile color. You will love these smart-looking shoes!

    Grant driver
    These are the best quality drivers we have found. Both of my teenage boys have had them for several years with no real signs of use. Fashionable and durable.

    Are these suitable for casual daily wear or will they wear out too quickly?
    A shopper on Mar 13, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: In general, I think Drivers are not for excessive walking around even though both my son and husband wear them a lot for walking around. They just wear out sooner.
    Why does Cole Haan no longer carry more size 14 & up driver or loafers?
    A shopper on Feb 10, 2017
