Pilotis just came in :)

Dumb post but I was excited my piloti prototipos were at my door today when I got home. I got them for the drive to brbs (brbs.org) also for the driving through the blue ridge mountains while I'm there. I got the Black and orange set.

Sizes are accurate...

Mine fit fine, and when you're rocking the 13's, there's not much margin for error.

I bought a pair of Piloti Sebrings about a year ago. They are really comfortable shoes. I treat them with Passier Lederbalsam every month or so and they haven't aged a day.

I'm not rocking 13's but..... Yes they fit true. I have wide feet and there a tiiiiiinnnnyyyy bit tight. They'll break in. I got them on ebay and they came in 2 days.. Ordered em on Saturday. The kicker was they were under 40 bux. Now that gas is 4.40 a gallon for 93 I have to be cheap for a bit and search ebay for my shoes .. I have only put gas in the box once this year. I don't get a chance to drive as much as I used to.

Love my five fingers for running but there's no way I would drive in those things. As you say, maybe with a tip, but certainly not any heal and toe action.

These guys occasionally run specials on different versions of the Pilotis for under $30:
