Great classic cars are ones whose styling has stood the test of time. Seemingly ageless, these cars were popular from the moment they arrived on the scene, and the people’s love for them has lasted decades. Piloti Shoes, which makes sneakers and loafers for the discerning driver, has its own line of classics. These shoes stand apart with timeless designs married to advanced technologies that make them modern classics. Let’s try on a few pairs.
When you think of Piloti Shoes, you’re probably picturing a pair of these. The Shift is a classic low-top sneaker that’s available in the most colors and sizes of any shoe in the company’s lineup. Made from soft Italian leather and suede in 10 colors, the Shift can be had in sizes ranging from a Men’s 7 to 14 in either regular or wide widths. It’s also laden with the company’s best tech, including Roll Control 2.0™ heel technology, a tire-tread sole, and a steel torsion bar (that you can’t feel) for improved foot stability. There’s a reason the Shift is first on this list, because it’s a true classic.
If you’re the kind of person who invests in a driving shoe, you likely lead a busy life that mixes business with pleasure. The Avenue is meant for people who might go to the office for work, a bar for drinks, and the track for fun, all in one day. The classic burnishing and brogue detailing of the top grain Italian leather elevate this shoe’s styling, making it a hybrid of sorts that you can wear comfortably all day no matter where your feet take you. Available in sizes ranging from a Men’s 7 to 14 and three colors, the Avenue has the bonafides to be a classic shoe in your collection.
One of the most popular pairs of shoes Piloti sells, the Drift is designed for your inner athlete that becomes unleashed on unsuspecting back roads. Handcrafted in Portugal from Italian leather and Nubuck, the Drift has an all-new Piloti sole with a functional gum bottom and multi-directional tread for more grip. Along with a full suite of performance features, the Drift also includes a unique laser-perforated “P” on the side for added breathability, as well as a hand-stitched heel detail inspired by taillights. Safe from overheating, your feet will fly in these. Available in sizes ranging from a Men’s 7 to 14 and five colors, the Drift often sells out in popular sizes because of high demand. It’s a future classic in the making.
