The new OMP Carrera High Driving Boots are specifically designed for those who race and rally in vintage or retro motor cars – or those who prefer the classic look over the more brightly coloured modern offerings.
OMP developed the boot specifically for motorsport use, and it’s FIA 8856-2000 approved thanks to the soft knit Nomex inner lining. The sole of the boot is both oil and fuel resistant, and the upper is a soft, malleable leather designed to be comfortable for long distance drives. The Carrera High Driving Boot also has a classic lace up closure and a velcro strap, with a handcrafted rubber sole that covers the heel to offer good grip in the cockpit.
