Style Spy: be a well-heeled motorist in these driving moccasins from Cole Haan
By Nicholas Mizera
The Air Grant Driving Moccasin is available in myriad colours, including Ashley blue
So, you’ve got the decadent drop-top of your dreams revved up and ready to go for the summer. But do you have the shoes to go with it? Even if you don’t have the latest Mercedes-Benz SL-Class parked in your garage, you’ll appreciate these on-trend driving mocs we found at Cole Haan on Bloor Street.
The Air Grant Driving Moccasin ($165) has long been a staple of stylish motorists, but now it’s available in myriad colours, like yellow, pink and Ashley blue (pictured).
Featuring a hand-sewn, super-supple suede that would make a luxury car’s upholstery seem rough, this moc goes the distance with a traditional nub sole and heel protector design. But like your car, it’s also about what’s under the hood: Cole Haan’s Nike Air cushioning makes these one comfortable ride.
You can kick them into gear with some flat-front khaki shorts or unconstructed white linen pants for maximum cool. As for tops, think pink or a fitted, pastel polo. As the shoe has little to no lining, you shouldn’t be afraid to show some sockless ankle. After all, why should your ride be getting all the attention?
$165. Available at Cole Haan, 101 Bloor St. W., 416-926-7575.
