    Driving mocs???

    Will you guys please share some ideas for driving moccasins?

    I like these but am unfamiliar with the brand...

    Also I really don't want to go over $100...

    Thanks!

    I bought a pair of the DSW house brand Driving Mocs and really like them.

      I have some of the DSW brand ones too:

      I think that is the ones, but mine are the orange/cognac (what the hell is that color?) color. They are nice, comfy, and look like a much pricier shoe, IMO.

      I also just snagged a pair of Banana Republic's Gabriel penny-loafer version of the driving moc:

      Those were marked down to about $70 in-store, and then I applied the 40% off of already marked down goods, so they were a steal at $42, or so. .... I *hope*. I have yet to give them a good wearing. I know *some* of BR's shoes get some bad reviews, but these felt AWESOME on - almost like they *weren't* on - just like a comfy driver should.

        I got my steve madden driving mocs at dsw for 50$.

        I beat the piss out of them and they still look ok.

          Are you guys actually wearing these just for driving or are these everyday walk-around shoes?

          I've never found them to be very attractive or comfortable, personally.

            I like the minnetonkas you linked too, they seem more casual than other offerings though. Minnetonka makes good stuff for the price. I got my driving mocs from the Clark's outlet for $40 last summer, they get worn often in the warmer months.

              Never liked having a wedge of rubber sole on the heel of my shoe.

              But then again I came around to boat shoes after having my hate on them for years so time's a changin lads.

                Hey guys!

                So I actually ended up getting these http://www.peltzshoes.com/itemnew/it...er=43427811542

                I picked them up from nordstrom online for $80. They were the last pair and my size so I figured I would pull the trigger and return if I did not like them. Im not a big fan of the logo and if I do keep them I will replace the tassels with a leather lace to tie. I'm a huge fan of the color as I already own the johnston and murphy kholson in the dark brown. Feedback on the purchase would be great...

                  Have you considered colored laces?

                    No but that sounds like a great idea! What would you suggest? red? brown? navy? also what material and shape?

                      I would say navy, red as an alternative. I think round laces are your best bet unless they make flat laces with a width small enough to work (unlikely I think). For material I don't think I can offer any help there. I just don't know enough about material options. This thread has several suggestions to get you started.
