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.
