F-TYPE-inspired Jaguar by Oliver Sweeney range driving shoes can be purchased at the new Jaguar Land Rover stand at Geneva International Motor Show (04-16 March 2014).
Jaguar Advanced Design Director Julian Thomson was with Oliver Sweeney’s Cobbler-In-Chief, Tim Cooper at the shoemaker’s London studio when developing the new range.
Materials and finishes applied to the F-TYPE sports car served as inspiration to uphold quality, technical craftsmanship and attention to detail.
F-TYPE-inspired Jaguar by Oliver Sweeney footwear is available in a combination of carbon fibre print leathers and sandwich nubuck leathers, in red, navy and black, colours one sees inside the F-TYPE.
Available at a price of £195 to £225, there’s a men’s and ladies’ range of lace-up and slip-on driving shoes.
Tim Cooper, Oliver Sweeney Cobbler-in-Chief, said, “For us, Jaguar encompasses perfection beyond just intuitively rewarding performance vehicles. Their sports cars deliver an instantly engaging driving experience, which our range of ‘Jaguar by Oliver Sweeney’ driver shoes perfectly complements.
“Designed using our Anatomical Last™ technology, the shoes are styled on a device that mimics as closely as possible the natural contours of the foot, and we have removed the shank to sustain extensive durability and flexibility. This ensures our shoes provide a real connection between the driver, the vehicle and the road.”
