Some might call it a coincidence, others would call it heavenly intervention ... but one thing is certain, Car Shoe (part of the Prada Group) was also born in 1963, so what better anniversary gift then to create a limited edition version of their famous moccasin ... a shoe that shows Italian craftsmanship like no other revisited to celebrate the 50th anniversary ... not only for the Car Shoe brand but also for Automobili Lamborghini SpA.
This new loafer has been created for the Lamborghini Grande Tour by using the best calf leather available, made completely by hand it is available in various shades, but all feature a beautiful Lamborghini crest on an enameled shield fitted to the lace running along this renowned shoe.
The Raging Bull logo returns on the inner sole while the leather sole gets perforated so rubber studs can be fitted to offer maximum comfort and practicality at the same time ... note these driving shoes actually feature studs made from tire tread compound.
These shoes will be available from the Car Shoe flagship stores and online ... however all the drivers and staff that make up the Lamborghini Grande Giro with 350 cars driving 1,200 km from Milan to Sant'Agata will receive a pair of these commemorative loafers.
