Founded in 1999 by a sport shoe designer and racing enthusiast, the company quickly became a fixture in the car and racing world, gearing some of the world’s highest-profile drivers. Car fanatics and Hollywood celebs have all been big fans of Piloti shoes. Top racers (including Ron Fellows and Johnny O’Connell) swear by them, crediting the biomechanical technology and extreme comfort with preventing the foot pain that comes with endurance racing – and with extending their careers.

Piloti has teamed up with a noted California designer to reinvent Piloti, using the same patented technology, to make it even bigger and better than before. They are excited to be bringing back proven favorites, as well as a brand new luxury line of premium leather driving shoes crafted in Italy.

​The Shoes: Biomechanics @ Work

During the LeMans 24 Hour race, many drivers end up needing medical attention for foot problems caused by heat and vibration. Many racing teams actually keep a pediatrist on staff for that reason. Piloti footwear is designed to prevent this pain and discomfort; the secret is in the technology.

Piloti’s patented Roll Control™ spherical heel extends cushioning up the heel and onto the sides of the lateral right shoe, minimizing contact with the sides of the foot well, and preventing wear and tear on the driver’s feet.

The result? Fewer injuries and greater comfort. Innovative technology and sleek design that looks great in the car and on the street.

Piloti shoes feature:

Top-quality suede and leather for superior comfort

Patented Roll Control™ spherical heel cushions and supports

Polyurethane/EVA midsole for durability and long-lasting comfort

Fire-resistant DuPont® Nomex® lining and thread in all Performance styles

Toe spring for all-day comfort and everyday use on the streets

Sole tread pattern inspired by vintage racing tires
