Car Shoe was founded in 1963 by Gianni Mostile, whose passion for racing cars led him to design handmade moccasins made from very soft leather and soles set on tiny rubber studs to enhance adherence to car pedals and were particularly suitable for driving sports cars. The Car Shoe driving shoe design was awarded a registered patent from the Italian Ministry of Trade and Industry in 1964 which has since expired. The brand has since become an Italian classic for driving shoes, known for its technical-design originality with high-quality leather and handmade craftsmanship. We believe Car Shoe is a symbol for exclusive lifestyle and luxury driving. Particularly suited for leisure time and informal occasions, Car Shoe products are targeted at a sporty and elegant clientele.
