“Going for a run? You’ll probably grab a pair of New Balances. Shooting some hoops? Then you’ll be lacing up some Jordans. Going for a nice afternoon drive in your Aston Martin coupe? Well, now you have the right footwear.” So goes the press sheet on these snappy numbers from John Lobb.

Frankly, we find this verbal setup a little dubious. Sure, you use your feet quite a bit for driving, but you don’t need extra arch or ankle support. What you need is a soft, slim shoe with edges that don’t catch the pedals. These meet those needs and then some: “Perforations on the out and instep add the right touch of airflow as you are working the pedals …” (hyperbolic much?). Thing is, so do a grip of non-driving shoes. We do, however, like that they look like another specialized shoe: bowlers. Handsome shoes in lots of cool colors; hype not necessary.
