Driver shoes (or driving moccasins) were designed in 1963 by an Italian company and as you’ve probably guessed, were initially created for driving to enhance peoples driving experience. Over the years however the driving shoe has become more commonly worn casually during the summer months.
Due to popular demand and with summer just around the corner here at Cheaney we have teamed up with an Italian factory to bring you Donnington, our driving moccasin shoe made from calf leather.
You may be wondering why we aren’t making Donnington ourselves in our Northamptonshire factory. The answer is simple… to create a moccasin construction a specialist type of machinery has to be used, which unfortunately we do not have available in our factory. To give you the best quality driving shoe we have gone directly to Italy, home of the driving shoe. Due to these being made in Italy please be aware we are unfortunately unable to offer our refurbishment service.
Here at cheaney we think brighter the better, therefore Donnington is available in a selection of colours, so if you’re feeling daring make a statement in either Burgundy, Bottle Green or Cobalt Blue.
However if you’ve got your eye on the Sienna calf driving shoe but still want to add a pop of colour to your outfit how about pairing these with some coloured shorts or trousers to set you apart from the crowd.
