The Air Boss is one of several pilot-specific shoes introduced by Lift Aviation, a subsidiary of EVS Sports, which has been developing safety equipment for athletes for the past 30 years. Patent-pending heel sliders and a dedicated traction system provide support and improved grip while the feet are resting on the rudder pedals. The sturdy sole is oil-, heat- and slip-resistant, and cushioned to provide exceptional comfort yet flexible enough in the toe to allow for good rudder control.
