The GRAND PRIX HI-TOP (G.P. Hi) is a model inspired by Negroni's beloved motor racing style of the 60's and early 70's. For several years, we researched photographs of racing drivers' feet taken from those period, and have come up with a high-top sneaker that mixed contemporary features with the design atmosphere of the era. The oil that seeps into the surface of the suede creates a unique manly, uneven gradation effect. The lining also features our original "Motorhide Vintage" leather that ages nicely as the shoes are worn, which also creates luxurious feel.
The "Original Black & Cedar Wood" colour is a faithful period reproduction, down to the naming of the colour. People probably remember this classic colour combination of pure black body and accented with cedar wood heel being used not only on sneakers but boots and slip-ons back in the day.
The combination of the high quality vegetable tanned Lombardy leather on the upper with the naturally dyed Cedar Wood calf leather on the heel creates the distinctly luxurious look.
< Fitting and Sizing>
Tanary Lo Stivale's masterpiece "Lombardy Tan" leather is extremely flexible and it loosens up to remember the shape of the feet even from the very first time of wearing. The leather also provides uniquely comfortable delicate and luxurious touch. In contrast to the slim and crisp silhouette, the new GRS last gives thick and solid wear around the toe. The leather insole with thick cushioning provides three dimensional arch support, lifting the entire foot without stress, which provides unique feel. This particular G.P. Hi is provided with both classic cotton laces to create period correct look and rubber laces, so you can wear your pair without undoing the laces.
*The new GRS last is designed based on the same original Negroni size chart like all the other Negorni Driving Shoes. The fit may slightly differ, but we recommend trying the same size.
