The Racine Ave. Driving Shoe. No. 4802
Every pair of Robert August Driving Loafers are Handcrafted to order in our workshop in Almansa Spain, with a history of artisan shoemaking dating back to the early 18th century.
Robert August uses only the finest leathers from tanneries in Italy, Germany, and Spain and sartorial fabrics from the most prestigious mills in Italy, France, and Belgium. Our craftsmen then transform these materials using generations of knowledge and skill to create an exceptional pair of shoes unique to you.
Note: All of our slippers are made when ordered, please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.
Sometimes referred to as “driving moccasins”, “driving loafers” or even just as “drivers”. The Driver from Robert August is essentially a moccasin-construction slip-on with a snug but comfortable fit. The defining feature is the small rubber pebbles that cover the sole and extend to the back of the heel – they are very flexible and provide added grip. Expertly engineered to keep your two feet as comfortable as possible while navigating the road on four wheels, the driving moccasin was the footwear equivalent of the Italian auto spirit, marrying luxury with practicality.
The Robert August Driver exudes a sophisticated style. With superior craftsmanship and Gommini rubber soles, Robert August has designed a sleek driving moccasin that’s ideal for cruising around town.
