The Car Shoe!


Car Shoe was founded in 1963 by Gianni Mostile. The brand soon became best known for its signature moc which feature tiny rubber nubs. The brand earned a patent from the Italian Ministry of Industry and Trade with fans that included Giovanni Agnelli, JFK and Roberto Rossellini.

Great kicks to get with the start of spring.  I got a pair of suede dark  with rubber-studded soles and rope-effect leather laces. A footwear classic, these loafers will will work with denim effortlessly and look amazing with good chinos or shorts.

In 2001, Car Shoe was acquired by Prada, which soon opened stores in Milan and Capri and introduced the line into over 200 major boutiques internationally.

According to Fashion Wire Daily, Car Shoe is one of six most copied labels in China 😦
