The Competizione Driving Boots by Piloti are designed to be a slightly more casual-looking take on the boots worn by professional racing drivers. That said, they don’t skimp on any of the protective features, and each pair is FIA certified and SFI rated, with a fireproof Dupont® Nomex® lining.
Piloti suggest sizing up between half to a full size for a comfortable fit, and each pair have perforated leather panels for breathability, an adjustable ankle strap, full laces, a sole that curves around the heel of the foot for traction in the footwell, and curves around the outer-forward section of the foot for heel-and-toe shifting.
