Honda Racing shoe series by FILA - click above image for high-res gallery

Actually, it would be more accurate to call the fruits of this collaboration driving shoes, as these five new Honda Racing shoes aren't covered in flame-retardant Nomex. But no matter -- FILA is releasing five new shoes inspired by "Honda Racing's commitment to fulfill every car enthusiast's racing dreams."

When you cut past the marketing hoopla, what you have are a new set of footwear packed with driver friendly features such as floor mat-grabbing cupped polyurethane heels, "ballistic" mesh for breathability, low profile outsoles for better pedal feel and and light weight that helps reduce fatigue. The new shoes are available in either low or mid top and four different colors. Hey, why not? The Honda/FILAs are even kinda good looking. And come to think of it, our must-have-'cause-we're auto-journos Pilotis are getting a bit long-in-the-tooth.

      Do they have ones for the insight that helps assist your foot for the pulse and glide technique?

      Wondering if by any chance the sporty model will be called NSX?
        • 5 Years Ago
        No, if they slap in a lot of leather, it will be called a Type-S. If you end up with shoes that weight 0.00001kg and has barely any material, it will be called a Type-R.

        With these Honda shoes, once your heartbeat moves past 150bpm, suddenly you'll run twice as fast ;)

      Don t you wish AB had a "like" button like facebook sometimes?
      These shoes would look great on me when I get my CRX

      Puma makes the best motoring shoes available, even better than Piloti I'd say. The Porsche Design line from Adidas is also very impressive.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Pumas look better.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I love the design of the shoes...I just hate the "Honda Racing" on the side of it. *Cough* Ford Racing *Cough*
      • 5 Years Ago
      I like the Grey on White...very me
      • 5 Years Ago
      Let these shoes designers work on Acuras I say!!!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yeah no kidding...

        Fire the dolt who came up with that front grill and make everyone wear these shoes.

        Seriously.

        And Honda - how about offering sports cars to match your sport shoe endorsement? I just bought a 370Z, but I would have gotten either a new version of the NSX or a proper update of the S2K in a heartbeat.

        I love Hondas past, but you build great cars and then let them die on the vine. And a Fat AWD/Hybrid "NSX" is not the way to change things. Nor is 200+ hp in a FWD car, no matter what the suspension arrangement.
