    I'm looking to get a few pairs of Car Shoe drivers but I have no clue about their sizing. I wear a US 9 in Swims Loafers if that helps. I've heard that for Car Shoe you should size down by one US size but I'm not sure. Anyone who can tell me how they fit would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I assume you have personal experience with these? How many pair do you own? The OP is asking about the sizing - any advice on that?

    I own many pairs of Car Shoe Driving Loafer, some of them bought in the first year of 2000 before the driving loafer hype.
    They are surely the best driving loafer on the market considering the big brands.

    But see also Miserocchi Range http://www.miserocchisnc.it/

    They are the original maker of the Car Shoes, they were the owner of the Registered Patent that was sold to Prada togheter with the use of "Car Shoe" name, they still produce with the original machinery that made even the famous Agnelli driving loafers.

    Regarding the sizing advice, I wear UK 8.5 in most english brand and usually 8 in Italian brands, and I wear 8.5 in Car Shoe.

    Thank you. I wear a UK 8 in english size. So do you think I should stick with a UK 8 for Car Shoe? Or size down?
