Hot on the heels (ged­dit?) of Toy­ota Ga­zoo Rac­ing’s re­cent LMP1 ef­forts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Piloti has un­veiled a line of limited edi­tion leather driv­ing shoes de­signed for fans of what is the world’s old­est and most pres­ti­gious en­durance sports car race. Piloti’s cel­e­brated

(and patented) Roll Con­trol Heel tech­nol­ogy – ris­ing spher­i­cally up the back of the shoe to pro­vide im­proved trac­tion in the footwell whilst cup­ping the driver’s heel for re­duced foot fa­tigue – was first tested and de­vel­oped at the event. Need­less to say, Piloti and Le Mans are a match made in footwear heaven! ‘Cir­cuit’ fea­tures an at­trac­tive race stripe in French na­tional colours, and a wo­ven French flag next to raised event brand­ing. A 100% leather up­per in white is joined by a black leather heel dec­o­rated with a red band, while a fur­ther nod to rac­ing can be seen in the tread pat­tern of the shoe’s de­tailed 80% rub­ber, 20% leather sole. The at­ten­tion to de­tail and qual­ity con­struc­tion of this ex­cel­lent driv­ing shoe is bound to be a big hit with lovers of Toy­ota and en­durance rac­ing, es­pe­cially as ‘Cir­cuit’ can be worn as com­fort­able ca­sual footwear. UK sizes avail­able range from 6.5 to 12.5. Gen­tle­men, start your en­gines!
