Steven Piantoni is an exterior designer for Lotus Cars. Graduated from Coventry University in 1999 with a BA Hons in automotive design, from 1999 to 2007 Steve was employed by Bentley Motors, working on cars such as the Continental GT, the Flying Spur and the Mulsanne. In 2008 he took a career switch into footwear design, working for a company called Pentland, who owned footwear licenses of many brands, including BoxFresh, Lacoste and Berghaus. His automotive skills transferred nicely into the footwear industry, designing a range of trekking shoes for Berghaus and the Spring/Summer 2010 range for BoxFresh. From there Steve took another switch, working for a product design consultancy, with collaborations with brands such as Aston Martin, Clark's Originals and Vurtu. After three great years, his passion for cars had resurfaced, and so Steve started working for and driving one of his favourite marques, Lotus. As a creative Steve is always looking for new way to express himself, and after winning the 'Size? x Nike Air Max' Instagram competition he found a new artistic outlet and audience. Through this, his first site was born, www.Matchkicks.co.uk. This business combined the love of matching t-shirts, kicks and love of art. With some success, this fuelled the next venture, SneakerToons. Nothing complicated about this one. Just a love of sneakers and sketching. Starting as a 'doodleaday' that Steve posted on Instagram, it stirred some interest in the sneaker community. There are so many great shoes and colab colourways, reason why he decided to sell them as limited edition mini prints. Signed and numbered by Steve.
