The Driving Moccasin

The driving moccasin can trace its lineage all the way back to the 1960’s in Italy. With the boom of the Italian auto industry, more and more people started to own cars, and the real classy gents needed something to replace their usual shoes while driving lest they crease and wear out. And so the driving moccasin was born. Crafted from soft leather and left unlined, the flexibility of this new style helped drivers bend their feet to accelerate, while rubber pebble soles offered traction on the pedals while evenly dispersing weight to avoid any soreness or discomfort. As soon as Italian race car drivers were spotted wearing their loafers outside their vehicles, this luxury item became an essential—especially during the hot summer. Designed to be worn barefoot, this loafer is ideal for the warmer months when socks aren’t an option and you don’t feel like showing off your toes. For ideas on how to wear them, just look to these three stylish men.

The always-stylish Ty Severe took the Henrick all over Los Angeles for a full workday with a polo, blazer, and some slim fit chinos. He even took advantage of the Twinsole™ interchangeable insoles, starting with the UGGpure™ wool set for coffee and switching to the leather-lined foam for afternoon meetings and cocktails.
