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.

    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!!!
