Santoni driving shoes for Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG – Click above for high-res image gallery
Driving a supercar upside down in a tunnel requires some fancy footwork, even if there isn't a clutch pedal to manipulate. Fortunately the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has got the right footwear thanks to a collaboration with Santoni. The Italian clothier, which has shared a longstanding relationship with Benz's performance house, has crafted these specially-made, FIA-certified driving shoes.
Presented recently at the Pitti Uomo 77 boutique in Milan, the SLS AMG driving shoes will be available to buyers – and presumably to fans – of the corresponding supercar in black, and soon in a variety of colors to compliment the high-performance machine. The laces, though, open like any other shoes, not like the gullwing they're made to accompany.
