Piloti x Pagani
by John Jones

Premier racing and high-tech driving footwear manufacturer Piloti has launched “The Roadster Driving Boot,” a limited-edition shoe in collaboration with luxury Italian supercar maker Pagani Automobili. The boot incorporates a pliable carbon fiber panel for weight reduction and strength, inspired by Pagani’s Huayra Roadster. Even the packaging maintains the two brands’ racing heritage with a unique “gull wing door” box.

The malleable four-way flex shoe is designed to move in tandem with every shift and step of the driver’s foot. Key features include laser etched anodized aluminum hardware, Pagani’s iconic 4 pipe exhaust emblem, low-profile cushioning in the forefoot for optimal pedal feel, and Piloti’s patented Roll Control 2.0 heel technology to protect and cushion the heel bone.

The Roadster Driving Boot is now available on www.piloti.com, retailing for $849. Only 250 pairs will be available worldwide. The boot will also be available at Canadian retailer Harry Rosen.

And if the boot isn’t enough, Piloti is offering custom footwear for Pagani owners. The brand, headquartered in Toronto, also offers sneaker styles that start at around $150, driving moccasins at around $350, and boots in the $350 to $500 range.
