Three New Colorways Of Piloti’s Pistone X Casual Driving Shoe Have Been Added To The Shop
If you insist on wearing professional-grade driving shoes to run gas-and-groceries errands around town, you should probably expect people to judge the bright blue suede high-tops under your jeans that are clearly made for heel-toeing sports cars instead than standing in line. Fashion is subjective though, and you’re free to wear race boots to the coffee shop just like you’re free to wear a full-body polyester cycling suit that looks like the yellow jersey to the same place. For those who prefer a subtler look though, and one that doesn’t abandon the sports focus of a good driving shoe, there are options like the Piloti Pistone X that walk the line between between full-on and laid back.
Today we’ve added three more colors of the Pistone X to the Petrolicious Shop, but these are more like evo versions of the classic casual driving shoe. The fit is designed to make the Pistone X wearable as a daily, with additional padding around the collars for comfort, and an ergonomically improved cupsole inside the shoe pairs well with the company’s modern rollable heel design on the sole, which is patterned in a subtle classic tire tread scheme.
Because comfort is more than just the actual wearing of a shoe, though, there’s also an anti-microbial lining on the quilted side panels inside the Pistone X, which helps control the sweaty feet that come with spirited driving—in other words, you can comfortably use them for weeks at a time without them building up a permanent post-race smell.
