Piloti’s back to make a name for itself in the driving shoe business

The auto industry has always had a healthy relationship with the world of high-fashion and the latest example of that comes by way of Piloti, the highly-regarded driving shoe maker whose latest offering is a commemorative pair of sneakers that pay homage to the Chevrolet Camaro’s 50th Anniversary. The shoe, officially called the ‘Camaro Fifty’ Limited Edition Piloti, is arguably the closest thing some will get to being a part of the Camaro’s golden anniversary.

Aesthetically, the low-cut shoe is a modified version of one of Piloti’s most famous line of shoes, the Spyder S1. The upper part is predominantly made from mesh and suede and the exclusivity comes into play with its orange and grey color scheme. It also features race-inspired stitching that runs along the opposite ends of the orange shoe laces and an embroidered “Camaro Fifty” logo on the outsole provides the definitive addition that highlight its uniqueness. As a final touch, the Camaro Fifty also has vintage patterned rubber treats that provide the necessary grip that’s required for high-class driving shoes.

While the style is admittedly not for everyone, those who do want to get a pair can now do so through pre-order at chevymall.com for a price of $135. They can also go to Piloti.com and to sellers of Official Chevrolet Licensed Products. Remember though that only 600 pairs are available so get those pre-orders ready before they’re officially shipped out on November 2016.

A unique style for a unique taste

While I do count myself as a sneakerhead, I know well enough when a specific pair is worth buying and whether I can look good rocking it. Piloti’s Camaro Fifty driving shoe is worth buying, especially for those in the market for a driving shoe. The price tag of $135 is right where the it should be - anything more expensive and I’d have a different opinion - and there’s no denying that their quality is as good as it’s going to get.

That said, I know that I won’t look good in a pair of these shoes because orange doesn’t agree with me. I’m just not a fan of the color as a fashion apparel. Don’t let me influence you though because if you think this special edition pair is worth buying, then by all means, sign up for a pre-order now. Even better, if you actually own one of the 5,000 units of the actual Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition, then I don’t know what you’re waiting for. If you can afford the car, you can afford the shoes!
