Italian car manufacturer Pagani and driving shoe specialist Piloti have joined forces to create the perfect pair of footwear for even the most discerning car enthusiast.
The companies took inspiration from the soft elegance of the Pagani Huayra Roadster. The result is the chic-looking shoe you see above, called the Roadster Driving Boot. Having spent two years in development, each pair is handmade in Italy and features top-grain leather construction.
On top of that, it’s got pliable CX6 carbon fiber panels for maximum durability. These panels are great because they cut down on heft and weight, making for a relatively lightweight and comfortable pair. It’s an element borrowed directly from Pagani’s line of hypercars, most of which heavily use carbon fiber as well.
Beyond its brutalist and utilitarian but still lithe and sleek aesthetics, the shoe also features something called Roll Control 2.0. This heel extends the shoes’ cushioning to the heel, which helps maximize comfort when driving. There’s also CNC + laser etched anodized aluminum hardware baked in. Name another pair of shoes that has that? Blanking? We thought so.
If none of the above has convinced you to get one, this might: Only 250 pairs will be sold worldwide. That’s not a typo — the Roadster Driving Boot is literally one of the rarest shoe finds you’ll ever purchase. Granted, you might stick to your Nike or Adidas kicks once you hear the price tag — just $849, folks — but purely for rarity alone, these are a steal.
They’re available now from Piloti’s online store, but make sure to order half a size down as they’re not true-to-size.GET THEM HERE
