I’m all for having the perfect shoe for a particular occasion but had never anticipated needing a specific pair of shoes to drive my car.

Apparently driving a gullwinged supercar requires some fancy footwork, even with the lack of a clutch pedal to manipulate.

Fortunately the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has the answer thanks to a collaboration with Italian designer Santoni, which has shared a longstanding relationship with the Mercedes-Benz's performance house & has crafted these specially-made, FIA-certified driving shoes.

Recently launched at the Pitti Uomo 77 boutique in Milan, the Mercedes SLS AMG driving shoes will be available in a variety of colors to compliment the high-performance machine.

For the boys; the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG sports AMG’s 6.2-liter M156 V8 mounted aft of the front axle & puts out 571 hp at 6,800 rpm & 479 lb-ft of torque at 4,750 rpm.

Gals – it’s a fast little sucker.

Although the shoes accompany the supercar, they will not make you as fast.
