Dress shoes are good for work. Running shoes are good for the gym, or an outdoor stroll in the neighborhood. Sandals are fine, if you're a monster or a child. But those are not the only categories of shoes that are important. There's one that's missing: the underappreciated "Driving Loafer" (or Driving Shoe for the commoners).
For anyone taking a road trip, or simply driving across town, these Polo Ralph Lauren Woodley's are perfect. Dressy enough to wear to church, perfect for casual Friday at the office.. and comfortable enough for extended periods of time with your foot firmly planted on the accelerator.
The Woodley's from Polo Ralph Lauren feature moc-stitched leather, with tiny lugs on the outsole. If you just glanced at them, you might call them moccasins, or even penny loafers.
Why should you buy one? What makes it a good Father's Day gift?
The best part about these shoes is that your dad might not even know he needs a good pair of driving shoes. Rest assured, once he tries them on.. you'll see him rocking these all too frequently. Driving shoes for the win.
