The Idea is Negroni's classic driving shoe. It is accented with contrasting coloured side panels inspired by motorsports. The grippy rubber sole and classic insole cushioning 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.
<Arno split leather and Tuscana suede>
Split leather Arno, produced in the Tannery in Biella, Italy, is scratch-resistant and has the optimum strength for use as trimming leather. Tuscany suede boasts a thick, beautiful fur with a strong contrast between the different material expressions, and its firm stiffness captures the entire foot for highly stable pedalling. The resilient suede texture gradually loosens with use over time and becomes soft enough to transmit the movements of the fingertips smoothly.
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 has been uniquely developed for the Idea, based on 3E. 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 the handling has been proven by many championship-winning professional racers.
