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.
  • Flexible rubber nubby driving sole and heel protector.
  • Style #C12134

    Fantastic casual option
    I simply love these shoes! Extremely comfortable after a VERY short break-in period. My go-to shoe for shorts and almost any casual situation. So much sharper than a pair of boat shoes.

    All-Time Favorite Shoe
    My experience with the Grant Penny has been an amazing one. After a little hesitation because of the price, I finally decided to purchase. Very true to size, the only downside was a break-in period of about a week (caused some minor blisters on top of feet.) The papaya color is very neutral and pretty close to that shown the pictures. Perfect shoes for both formal and casual wear. Would recommend to anyone!

    Selected W (wide) and it fits
    The normal width is usually tight or even unwearable. 'W' is more comfortable. I don't know whether it can hold up now. Time will tell.

    Hope it can last for a year when being worn as street shoes.

    Not true to size
    My husband wears size 11, but this was too big. Waiting on the 10 1/2. He likes the shoes, but waiting for right size and then write another review.

    hoping the toe wears less than the howland penny which is otherwise a great shoe

    Simply put, it's a classic penny that you can wear on the weekends and to the office on Fridays (or any day if the office is relaxed enough)

    My brother needed a casual shoe so that he would not wear out his Cole Haan dress shoes. I saw these and I thought that they would be prefect.

    I love these shoes
    Jeremy B on Dec 14, 2016
    Are they true to size?
    A shopper on Feb 7, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I highly recommend stopping in a store to try them on. You want them to fit snug since they will stretch out a significant amount.
    I bought these shoes and they squeak when I walk in them. What can I do to fix this? Will it go away in time?
    Dustin on Apr 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: As you wear down the rubber treads on the bottom of the shoe, that sound should dissapear. Ironically, that wearing down also tends to end the shoe's life. I go through a pair every 1-2 years.
    Are these shoes waterproof?
    Marc D on Dec 12, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Apply Cole Haan Leather and Suede Protector spray to waterproof.
    what percentage of these shoes are
    manufactured in the united states?
    A shopper on Aug 31, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: 100
    Does this model have cushioned inner sole like the Nike Air version?
    A shopper on Feb 21, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No, it doesn't have the Nike Air sole like the older version. I preferred the cushioning of the older Nike Air sole to that of this one, but this sole is nearly as good. It's still a very comfortable shoe that I intend to keep buying as I wear through them.
    How do you protect the heel? I wore them once and there's scuffing on the heel indicating it's rubbing against the ground as I walk. And no, I'm not heavy.
