The Idea is Negroni's classic driving shoe. The rubber sole with excellent grip and the cushioning of the classic insole can be used widely as a leather sneaker for walking and as an easy-fit driving shoe. Although the model has been on the market for 15 years, it still enjoys great support from automotive professionals worldwide and is also used in the field of automobile development.
The Toscana Suede model boasts a thick, beautifully textured pile, which is firm and rigid and captures the entire foot for highly stable pedal work. The resilient suede texture gradually loosens with use over time to a softness that transmits smooth fingertip movement.
The surface of Tuscany suede is treated with a water-repellent nano-ceramic coating before shipping. This coating was originally developed for leather seats Alcantara by Ceramic Pro, a company that mainly deals with car body coatings. The water repellency of the nano-ceramic coating will last for approximately 5-6 months after application, but the effect will gradually diminish depending on the environment and temperature. After a certain period of use, we recommend a water-repellent treatment such as Collonil Carbon Pro.
The Negroni Leather Idea is the brand's original fit. The shoe's wooden profile was uniquely developed for the Idea, based on a 3E standard. The width and instep have sufficient volume, so they have an excellent balance that can be adapted to many Japanese foot shapes. The Negroni leather used for the upper is taut and supple. It has a good softness, but at the same time it has a toughness that prevents the leather from getting "tired" over long periods of use.
The RX-8 allows you to enjoy both general lifestyle driving and basic sports driving, including three-pedal driving, without any stress. The balance of handling has been proven by many championship-winning professional racers.
