The driving shoe first emerged in the 1960s to coincide with the rise of Italian luxury cars. Designers came up with a modified loafer design made from soft leather. A unique feature of these shoes were the pebbles or small protrusions on the sole of the shoe. They were there to serve a functional purpose. Drivers could press on the pedals without exerting too much pressure on their feet.
Today, the Zante is reminiscent of all the ideal qualities of a driving shoe. It has a rubber sole and a textured bottom for comfort. It has the long vamp that gives it a distinct appearance.
But, the Zante is also an evolved version of the driving shoe. The Zante is made from genuine shark leather, which gives it a unique texture. The precision of design can be seen in the braided details running across the top of the shoe. Silver hardware adds extra visual interest.
Zante comes in black, tobacco, and navy blue.
