* Segmented rubber sole for better feel
* Suede upper for a broken-in feel
* Made in Italy
Driving shoes – you know, the ones with rubber grommets on the sole and made from leather or suede – were first introduced with one thing in mind – better grip, while driving hard and fast. Nowadays, though, they’re worn as an everyday slip-on by anyone and everyone. Even if you don’t own a jaw-dropping Italian roadster, you can still slip into this pair from Ferragamo.
Adorned with a dark brown lanyard that wraps around the heel before it’s braided and locked in place with an omega-shaped bit up front, these Italian-made drivers have just the right amount of flair. Made with a suede upper in a dark camel for an already broken-in feel, and outfitted with a segmented rubber sole, you should get a better feel for whatever you’re driving when you don these beauties this spring.
That’s not to say you should wear these anytime you want – even if they are Ferragamo’s. There’s a time and a place for a slip-on moccasin, like a casual night out or quick run to the store. Of course, that all depends on which color you happen to choose as these are also available in leather in a dark navy, red or white. Tough choice, right?
Pair them with jeans and a blazer for a casual dinner, or with shorts if you’re going for that country club look. Ferragamo’s mark of quality is apparent on these loafers, which they have been producing in various incarnations for decades. The look has never gone out of style.
