The makers of expertly crafted, ultra-versatile driving shoes designed to gear your adventures both on foot and behind the wheel.
History of Piloti
We’ve geared your driving adventures since 1999 (and have loved every minute of it!). Ever wondered how we got our start? Keep reading for a breakdown of our 20 year heritage in motorsport racing, and how we got to making some of your current favourite driving shoes.
DESIGNED FOR THE TRACK
Founded in 1999, Piloti began by gearing professional racers for the world’s toughest tracks. Early Piloti race boots were highly functional and designed to be worn almost exclusively for behind the wheel. Our patented Roll Control™ (now Roll Control 2.0™) heel technology helped put us on the map.
Canadian racing legend and 24 Hours of Le Mans champion Ron Fellows credited Piloti shoes for extending his racing career – he wore our performance footwear exclusively after he began suffering from nerve damage in the ball of his right foot.
Current Piloti driving shoes (like our sneakers and loafers) are designed to be worn all day, every day – whether you’re walking or driving. Handcrafted in Europe from best-in-class materials such as top grain Italian leather and suede, Piloti shoes are still packed with tried-and-true performance features, like Roll Control 2.0™ heel technology and ONSTEAM® antimicrobial lining.
PARTNERS & COLLABORATIONS
We’ve collaborated with like-minded partners in the automotive industry, such as Pagani Automobili, 24 Hours of Le Mans, Stand 21 and Corvette, creating unique collections for fellow fans of these iconic brands. In 2020, we were the proud sponsor of F1 team Scuderia AlphaTauri – a true honor and bucket list-worthy goal to tick off!
At Piloti, our motto is performance driven design.
With over 20 years of history gearing championship racers for the world's toughest tracks, it's our mission to combine the performance of professional racing gear with the impeccable quality, design and comfort of your favorite footwear styles.
Handmade in Europe from supple leathers and suedes, our collection of driving shoes offer the versatility you need for your daily adventures, both behind the wheel and on foot.
