Racing Heritage Meets Modern Design

Piloti driving shoes are directly inspired by the world of motorsport, where quality of gear is fundamental to overall success. The brand has adapted the same innovative racing technology enjoyed by professional drivers and tossed in a versatile aesthetic that can go from driver’s seat to city street and back without losing its signature allure. Every driving shoe seamlessly blends function and fashion, ensuring they’re ready to handle whatever you throw their way.

Handcrafted European Construction

For 20 years and counting, Piloti shoes have been brilliantly handcrafted and assembled in Portugal—home to some of the world’s best shoemakers—using premium Italian leathers and suedes from top-rated tanneries. Taking each pair into the performance stratosphere is a host of carefully selected materials and technologies, including thin rubber soles, dual-density antimicrobial insoles (the kind you’d find in top-tier running shoes), patented heel curvature, ultra-soft and perforated forefeet, contoured arches, and a supportive steel shank inside the base. Sealing the deal is a red hand-stitch across the back of every silhouette, a tasteful nod to taillights and a subtle sign of distinction.

Extreme Durability

Piloti has kitted out championship drivers for some of the world’s toughest challenges—including the 24hrs of Le Mans, Daytona 500, 12hrs of Sebring, and the 24hrs of Daytona—so rest assured that the brand’s output is built to last for everyday wear. Not only is the sole of every Piloti driving shoe stitched to the upper for optimum durability, but further quality is ensured through the use of premium materials across the range, including quality leather options that can be polished, waxed, and rehydrated for greater longevity.

Piloti’s Drift is an Everyday Classic

Meet your new favourite sneaker for daily walks and drives, better known as Drift. Each pair is handcrafted in Portugal from Italian leather and nubuck and presented on an all-new Piloti sole, with a functional gum bottom and multi-directional tread for enhanced grip. In addition to the brand’s patented heel technology and antimicrobial lining, the sneaker employs a laser-perforated “P” for improved breathability. Get it in colours such as cognac, smoke, midnight, and more, and don’t forget to scope the taillight-inspired hand-stitch detail at the heel.
