Man Fashion: Car Shoe

12:31 AM Contributed by JW


Founded by creative artisan Gianni Mostile in 1963, Car Shoe embodied Mostile’s two passions – race cars and hand-made shoes that sparked the invention of a moccasin with a sole set on tiny rubber nubs. The ‘car shoe’ earned Mostile not only a patent from the Italian Ministry of Industry Trade; it also garnered Mostile a large group of sophisticated connoisseurs that included Giovanni Agnelli, Roberto Rossellini, and Lapo Elkann among others. Prada acquired control of Car Shoe in 2001, opening flagship stores in Milan and introduced the line into over 200 major boutiques internationally. Spring-summer 2004 saw the launch of its first bag collections.
