The Car Shoe story starts back in 1963 when Gianni Mostile decided to merge two of his great passions: race cars and handmade shoes. The combination proved to be a raging success, one that continues today under the management of Prada group, a brand whose forward-thinking creative and business strategies have made it (and everything it touches) into the one of the few most sought-after luxury brands on Earth.
Car Shoe is the hot pick of the moment for men and women alike - women like it because the styles derive from a masculine origin, but deviate to embrace the more delicate silhouettes and sensual nature of a woman. For S/S 2012 Car Shoe's creative team used Africa as a springboard where shoes come in shimmering golds, oranges, fiery reds, dusty sands and saffron. The classic driving shoe with its rubber nubbed sole is ever present with its sophisticated suede finish available in nearly all the colours of the rainbow.
We were also pleased to discover ballerinas, sandals and retro cork wedges for a more funky look from the traditional styles. Lovely and spacious leather handbags were also of mention should you wish to match up your shoes to your accessories.
