Premium footwear without the premium price. From the makers of expertly crafted, ultra-versatile driving shoes designed to gear your adventures both on foot and behind the wheel.



WHAT DOES "QUALITY SHOES" MEAN?

At Piloti, we’re inspired by all things automotive, and know that when it comes to world-class craftsmanship, nobody does it better than luxury car makers. 


So what does high quality mean to us? 


It means that no detail is ever too small, which is why we take the upmost care at each step of the craftsmanship process – from material selection straight through to production – to ensure that no matter the style, Piloti driving shoes will allow you to put your best foot forward.

WHAT IS HIGH QUALITY LEATHER?

At Piloti, we take material selection seriously. For our leather styles, we use exclusively top grain leather, which is among the best types of leather available for consumer products, apparel and footwear. Here’s why:

Durability

Top grain leather is collected from the top of the animal hide, where fibers are densest, which makes the leather more durable.

Consistency

Top grain leather is lighted finished to ensure a consistent look and feel each time, while still allowing the natural characteristics to shine through.

Less Processing

Top grain leather requires less processing, fewer chemicals, and produces less waste than most other leather types.

Comfort

Top grain leather is denser, so once it warms and moulds to the shape of your foot, it will hold its shape and fit like a glove (or in this case, a shoe).

Ageing

Top grain leather is collected from the top of the animal hide, where fibers are densest, which makes the leather more durable.

IT STARTS WITH THE LAST

Quality shoemaking starts with the last. A last is a three-dimensional mold of the human foot and is often considered the most important element of making a high quality shoe. It dictates fit, shape and aesthetic design. At Piloti, we’ve mastered the last – our last makers have been handcrafting exquisite lasts for decades, ensuring that the anatomical shape is just right.

MADE IN EUROPE

Our driving shoes are handmade in either Portugal or Italy, and we work with some of the best shoemakers in the business. Each of our partner workshops bring decades of specialized experience in specific types of footwear construction and are unified in their passion for their craft. This shared commitment to quality is evident in every shoe that we create.

OUR QUALITY PROMISE

At Piloti, we strive to deliver nothing but the best value for our customers and are proud to stand behind our products. Our shoes are crafted expertly by hand and inspected for imperfections. While minor variations occur as a part of this process, if you are unsatisfied with your purchase, you may return your unworn shoes for a full refund or exchange within 30 days of purchase.
