    You say add, I was told to get them in 1/2 size smaller than my sneakers.

    P.S. what size did you get, I emailed them about their largest size {2 minutes ago}.

    Thanks Schatten and enjoythemusic.

    I have those shoes in black and they run very small intentionally. They have a small sole and are narrow to fit the idea of a driving shoe. I wear a size 12, and can not wear them all day or with heavy socks. Get a half size larger than your sneakers at least and plan on wearing thin socks.

    12 is the largest size these came in. I wish they went bigger.

    Then it looks like I need another brand of shoe. I will send one more message and see if they have any larger.

    Thanks for the quick replys.

    I have 3 pairs. I do, as everyone else has advised, say that you should get 1/2 size larger than your normal shoe size. They fit fairly snug. They may not have your size as the shoes have been on sale for some time now and they're pretty much just liquidating the inventory at the point.

    Good driving shoes, not that great for walking though. I like the blue flame ones, subdued yet a little flash.

    Half size larger is correct. FWIW, I like them as driving shoes, but as regular shoes they suck. If you have to walk over 50 feet, they're worthless IMO. I would suggest Pilotis instead, find them at www.piloti.com. I wear my Pilotis over tennis shoes, they're that comfortable. And they're great driving shoes.

    Well, I'm scrwed. The largest size they carry is 9.5. Which is at least 3.5 sizes too small and Im told they are a very narrow shoe. ~sigh~
