Most driving shoes simply resemble vibrantly colored sneakers, but tend to sell for a much higher price. They’ll work just fine for a day at the track, but they’re not exactly suited for more conservative or social surroundings. By contrast, the Italian-made Stile driving shoe by OMP America has charcoal-gray suede inserts and black leather trim, giving an elegantly casual appearance that makes them appropriate for a variety of occasions. In addition, the thin anti-skid sole provides the driver with plenty of necessary pedal “feel.”Get them for $70 at www.ompamerica.com.
