The L’bardi driving loafer is an iconic menswear staple. Each pair is handmade in our Florence workshop, utilising over 100 individual steps, including hand cutting, hand lasting and hand stitching the upper. The L’bardi driving loafer is constructed upon our softly chiseled last, which defines the shape of each and every pair. However the thing that distinguishes the L’bardi driving shoe apart from the pretenders to the throne, is not only our unique last and dedication to using the finest suedes and calf hides, sourced from the finest tanneries in Italy, but our hand stitching process, which utilises the original driving shoe construction technique patented in 1963. The original technique involves involves using a needle and awl to painstaking hand stitch the vamp while the upper is nailed on the last. It is this unique and timeless craftsmanship that has ensured the driving loafer has made its way into the wardrobes of the world's most stylish men for the past 50 years and will continue to do so for the next generations to come.
