Sole to Pedal

Roadsters with a passion for feeling the power beneath their feet are a rarefied breed. These are the gentlemen for whom the driving shoe was invented. ERMENEGILDO ZEGNA crafted the Pelle Tessuta driver for men of style, substance and an appreciation for the finer things. The precious Italian fabric is obtained by using extremely thin strips of nappa leather in place of fabric yarns. The material is emblematic of Zegna’s approach, combining expert craftsmanship with innovative technology. Its tubular construction stitched onto a rubber sole provides extra grip to embolden drivers through tight turns. They’re just as handsome for a night on the town as trackside at Grand Prix. $825;
