John Lobb and Aston Martin Create Ultimate Lightweight Drivers Shoe

Two premier British brands have teamed up to create the ultimate lightweight driver’s shoe called Winner Sport. British luxury automaker Aston Martin gave a helping hand to the shoemakers at John Lobb to create a sleek, aerodynamic shoe featuring finely-tuned details that both brands are infamous for.

The Winner Sport was co-designed by Aston Martin Director of Design Marek Reichman and John Lobb’s Creative Director Andrés Hernández. It’s constructed from full-grain calfskin and lined with supple sheepskin. Adding support at the ankle is soft padding while the metallic eyelets, punched with a wheel of fine holes, reflect Aston Martin’s design cues. And unlike typical John Lobb shoes, the Winner Sport features a specially-engineered bonded rubber sole.

Plenty of color options will be available to those interested in picking up a pair or two and will be on sale at John Lobb and Aston Martin stores worldwide starting in May 2012.
