The Japanese automaker has teamed up with Thrillist and JackThreads to create the limited edition Honda HT3 driving shoe, priced at $100. It is available for sale exclusively on JackThreads.com and is inspired by the redesigned, all-new 2016 Honda Civic by paying tribute to the three core aspects of Honda design: high touch, high tension and high tech.
JackThreads developed the shoe in collaboration with Honda R&D America’s Jarad Hall, who helped lead the exterior design of the new Civic. The sneakers feature premium materials such as sleek suede with metallic hints and a quilted leather pattern on the heel counter and insole. Ensuring a comfortable and snug fit, the Honda HT3 driving shoe boasts a neoprene vamp that fits securely over the top of the driver’s foot and articulated nodes that wrap around the wearer’s ankle to provide additional support.
“Collaborating with JackThreads and Thrillist to develop an exclusive shoe for people who love driving and love the sporty new Honda Civic has been a great experience,” said Jarad Hall, Civic Senior Exterior Designer, Honda R&D Americas. “Our all-new Civic lineup is a real game changer in its segment when it comes to styling and fun to drive spirit, and we look forward to stepping into the footwear world with a premium limited edition shoe that showcases just how remarkable the Civic is, inside and out.”
