Some ASW readers are determined men indeed. I wrote last December about Calzaturificio Miserocchi, the small Italian maker that developed the original car shoe (which is not the same thing as the Car Shoe which I understand is made by Prada somewhere in Rumania). They spoke no English at Miserocchi at that time, but nonetheless a reader sent them a tracing of his feet and an order. Seven months later he received this pair of drivers, duplicates of a pair worn by the late L'Avvocato, Gianni Agnelli. I call that determination.
The situation appears significantly easier now, with the caveat that I have not tried it myself yet, as there is an online ordering system for the shoe. Cowhide, beaver or deerskin for 180 euro the pair.
