These driving shoes will take you from the backroads to the boardroom

British lifestyle brand Oliver Sweeney has joined forces with Jaguar to create a new collection of formal driving shoes, designed to allow precise control inputs while retaining a meeting-ready appearance…

Taking the long route to the meeting...

The new shoes – the first styles of which are named ‘Whitley’ and ‘Sayer’ – were initially designed using clay, much like the cars crafted by Ian Callum’s design team. Among the driver-tailored features are a chamfered heel profile to create a pivot point for better pedal control, and a waist-less finish to prevent the edges inadvertently catching the wrong pedal. Furthermore, there are subtle flourishes that echo current Jaguars, including a nod to the controversial D-pillar design of the existing XJ. The new collection is available from 1 October, priced at £325 in the UK.
