Cabernet is a modern driving shoes which can also be used a normal loafer.
The driving shoes came into existence in 1970s when an Italian Shoe Company modified the standard loafer with a different sole which curved backwards to facilitate the angular driving position.
Like classical driving shoes, Cabernet comes in Moc-toe construction which is a classical shoe making technique where the leather upper swings around the feet, like an envelope. The leather though the thin sole provides extra flexibility needed in a snug-fit shoe. The feet muscles expand and contract as walk [the muscles expand when our feet is on ground]. Moc-toe construction allows for this expansion and contraction and hence is ideal for such shoes.
The shoe comes with sweat friendly leather lining which will keep your feet dry and cool even with extended ours of usage.
Rubber sole provides extra grip and flexibility which adds to its charm and comfort.
Beautiful thick burgundy leather has been paired with Burgundy color sole to create a new vibrant color way. This color is rarely available in leather shoes and certainly not usually available for men’s.
These are one of the most comfortable shoes in our portfolio!
3 Months warranty against manufacturing defects. The warranty covers stitch & sole strength. The warranty does not cover wear and tear of leather or sole due to rough usage.
Driving Shoes are designed especially for extra comfort needed for driving cars. These are thin-sole light-weight shoes which are designed to be used without socks.
History of Driving Shoes:
In 1963 an Italian company [which still exists] patented an innovative flexible lightweight shoe which was designed for driving; back then it was a rich man's product. These shoes have a characteristic thinner flexible outsole which curves backwards allowing for angular position needed while using brakes & clutch. Premium leather lining provides additional comfort which also gives it an ability to be used without socks.
These have been extremely popular since then and have evolved into many of its variants.
Why it is called Driving Shoes?
Driving shoe is a category of shoe where the sole curves backwards to facilitate the shoe position in same angular position as needed to change the gears or press the brakes.
True Moccasin Construction
The leather wraps like an envelope below the feet; this construction technique gives the shoes an amazing ability to expand and contract with every step you take in these which adds to its comfort. This technique is somewhat rarely used as it consumes more leather than usual cemented construction. It’s an amazing experience to use shoes made with MOCTOE technique.
Keeps your feet cooler
The shoe comes with powerful ventilation – the specialized inside leather absorbs the sweat very quickly and brings it to the surface from where it dries up, keeping your feet cool and sweat free. You can comfortably use it without socks. Your feet will remain stink free.
The shoe comes with powerful cushioning designed to reduce stress on your ankle and knees. The cushion is tapered to add to its ability to redistribute the pressure.

What is driving shoe?
Driving Shoes became very popular in 70s. It all started in Italy when a company came with a very light weight shoe which had sole going backward (at the end). There were two distinct features of this shoe (a) It was very light weight (a lot of people did not want to wear heavy shoes in long drives) (b) the ends of the sole allowed the angular position of the feet which is how it is while using gears brakes.
What is special about lining?
These shoes have been lined with naked leather. This family has very superior ability to absorb the sweat which travels to the upper surface of the shoe and dries up keeping your feet cool from inside.
What is true-moccasin construction technique?
True Moccasin construction refers to a technique where the leather swings like an envelope all around the feet. Driving shoes have a snug fit or they fit like socks which means that the leather needs to expand when you walk (the muscles expand when the pressure is on the big toe area). Only true moccasin construction allows for this expansion. This technique consumes 40% more leather but the comfort is unmatchable.
Wear these shoes without socks and if you have to wear them with socks then use half socks which are not visible from outside.
What's the difference between Faux Leather Shoes and Genuine Leather Shoes?
Faux Leather shoes do not breathe and feet will become hot from inside. Well-made genuine leather shoes (with genuine leather lining) will keep your feet cool even after 10 hours of usage in 40 degree Celsius zones. Genuine leather has 50 times longer life than Faux Leather Shoes.
