Tod's for Ferrari – Click above for image gallery

Tod's driving loafers and Ferraris go together like gin and vermouth, if not because every barchetta-driving playboy on the Amalfi Coast is sporting a pair, then because Ferrari's longtime chairman Luca di Montezemolo also sits on the board of the leathercrafter's company. But now the two companies have teamed up to bridge the divide with a special line of loafers bearing the iconic Cavallino Rampante.

The shoes bear all the hallmarks of Tod's enduring design – comfort, flexibility, style and those little rubber nubs in lieu of actual soles, all the better for gripping the pedals. The Ferrari line upgrades with little prancing horses, insoles patterned after Ferrari seats and – in the case of the Gommino Mascherina Griglia – a badge on the tongue reminiscent of the GTO's grille, replacing the tassels or laces on the Leccetto or Laccetto Tubi GT. They're available in a variety of colors, but will set you back a little more than the horse-emblazoned Puma sneaks available at your local Foot Locker.

      I've always wanted a pair of Tod's. Not so much with a Ferrari logo though.

      I like Ferrari and I like Tod's but these are kind of a scam.

        Put simply and well.

        I agree on the three accounts.

      Ugh, I dislike soles with nubs or lugs for driving. They tend to get caught on the edges of the pedals. I prefer relatively smooth-soled but grippy shoes, like basketball or tennis shoes.

      Just about 40 dollars over a regular pair of Tod's. Nothing out of the ordinary for luxury items like these. Too expensive? Not for you then.

        Here here! Apparently not many people on here know anything about cars or about shoes. Nice to see someone else who does. To quote Oscar Wilde again: "Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing"

        This lot wouldn't know a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo's from sweatshop Nike's.

      when you walk on some kinds of surfaces(certain carpet textures and pebbly surfaces) with them, the little buttons on the sole create a sliding ripple motion....uncomfortable and kinda unsteady.

      So *that's* what a "hot shoe" looks like. :-)
