Truth? We believe drivers are the unsung shoe of our generation. The sophisticated silhouette embodies the utilitarian stock that makes it a highly coveted staple of any shoe wardrobe, and they always seriously step up an outfit. When we heard Aimee Song of Song of Style and Blair of Atlantic-Pacific were designing their own pairs at Cole Haan’s Soho flagship, we had to partake. The best part: you, too, can get a license to design your very own custom drivers at select Cole Haan stores. From laces and knots to kilties and tassels, all the stylish trappings can be of your own choosing. If that’s the case, we say go with whatever tickles your fancy!
Scroll through to see how Aimee and Blair styled their drivers!
Navy and Pink
The Look: Pass up the pump for a dandy driver next time you wear classic skinnies and a blazer.
The Look: When your favorite tote and shoe get along, you’ve done something right.
The Look: Match your mocs to your outfit’s colorway. Here, Aimee opted for a medley of blue, denim, and white.
Tip: Go up a size with your button-down and slip it over a pair of frayed denim shorts. It keeps the look effortless, plus more leg equals more shoe.
Meanwhile on Atlantic-Pacific…
A Hint of Bling
Blair stoops sweet and low with a nautically-nuanced ensemble that reads more casual than stuffy.
The Look: The love match between this classic striped tee and red lip is magic. (Subtle side-tuck, we see you!)
