The founder, Gianni MOSTILE, had a passion for racing cars which led him to design handmade moccasins with a special sole to enhance adherence to car pedals. Car Shoe was born in 1963 and became soon promoted by celebrities such as Giovanni Agnelli, President John F. Kennedy, Roberto Rossellini. Beyond technical driving car needs, comfort, quality, and casual style are the keys to the brand's success. A wild selection of leathers, materials and colors confirms the brand's approach of Luxury in simple lifesytle. Carshoe became a subsidiary of PRADA Group in 2001 which has then expanded its worldwide presence.
