Adi Dassler developed performance race boots in direct collaboration with athletes. In the early 1960s, Adi Dassler and Fritz Huschke von Hanstein, a successful racing driver and the first head of the Porsche racing department, worked with racing drivers such as Wolfgang von Trips, to design racing shoes.
Adi Dassler developed the first “fireproof” race boot in 1974 and thereafter the highly successful Monza race boot became the choice of champions such as Mario Andretti, Walter Röhrl, Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet, and Ayrton Senna until the early 1990s.
