There are few things more representative of a man than his car and if you’ve been on the road you know there are some people on the road that could crash into you. If you, unfortunately, end up in that situation, consult with a personal injury attorney to improve your understanding of how you can proceed legally. But I digress. I know of his watch, his shoes, and then you have his car. So what if one of these three things was specially made to compliment another? AKIN driving shoes are specially designed to be stylish, modern sneakers, while having key features to make them functional, and comfortable during a spirited drive. These shoes are sure to make each experience with your car something special.

AKIN creates gear to celebrate the act of driving – They develop and test their products with an inside knowledge of the passion for cars, as the company was started by enthusiasts with a very healthy obsession with cars.

Now let us take a look at what makes these shoes unique.

These shoes are more versatile than racing shoes, and better for driving than your average running shoe. Starting with the upper; the shoes are made of durable leather, so they can stand up to daily use, while the shape and cut of the sides and tongue allow it to bend with your foot pointing up as it sits naturally on the car’s pedals. Additionally, they feature a heel-toe guard, to prevent scuffing during technical driving maneuvers.

The heel of the shoe is rounded (as it should be with any proper driving shoe) to allow for better pedal control, and more natural movement. The rest of the sole is also designed with driving in mind, with a rubber that provides the perfect balance of flexibility and durability so they can be worn for miles. We love the tire tread pattern, as it hints to the real function of the shoes, and it really sets these sneaker apart.

AKIN driving sneakers come in 3 different color ways: White/Tan, Black/Black, Grey/Navy. All at a modest price of $105. You would do well to get yourself a few different colors to match your style, and enjoy your car every day.

Overall these are stylish sneakers for those who love to drive, and they represent a step-change from the typical moccasin-style driving shoe for car lovers everywhere.
