What's going on with Piloti Shoes?

I have owned many pairs of Piloti shoes in the past (still do). I have been looking to buy a new pair in size 11 for a few weeks now and can't seem to find one anywhere. All that's available with most retailers are small sizes.

I decided to try to buy them from Piloti directly and tried their website. However the check-out process from their website cannot be completed...

Then I just tried to call them at 805-494-0756 and the number is disconnected.

Are they out of business? That'd be a shame.

Thanks.

ps: Does anyone know where there are size 11 Pilotis still available?

They declared bankruptcy a while ago. Go with Simpson or Sparco.

Thanks guys. I had not heard. That's a real shame. They were awesome shoes.

The other brand mentioned are nice, but what I liked about the Pilotis was that they could be worn around the office. Alpinestar and Simpson are very track focused. Any other brand that would be a nice alternative to Piloti?

If you want stylish you can spend a bit of coin and go with Santoni (partner with AMG) or Porsche Design (made by Müller & Meirer) or Sabelt (partner with Aston Martin.)

Garage List
Get yourself a set of these:


Joking aside, I have Sparco shoes and they are great. They surely don't look good, but at track days who cares about being stylish?
