That is correct. But original poster should not worry about the difference; no one will notice. And I love my Pilotis!! Had a pair for about 3 years and wear them everywhere; very comfortable and I like the style.

Talking Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66

Mexico 66 is the Boutique Shoes to go!!!

This shoe is a retro of the first debut version in Olympic Games in Mexico in 1968, so you can imagine that it's got a sport, comfort, and classic feel to it.

Oh yeah, The Tiger shoes is also the sports line of the famous running footwear brand ASICS. I also wear Gucci (which is a joke for the price I paid), Ferragamo (comfortable but older style), Bottega Veneta (nice quality and comfy), and Luis Vuitton (great quality but too narrow). When I feel like dressing "young" but not down, I wear my tiger shoes =)

do you want a driving shoe or a racing boot/shoe? There is a huge difference.

If you just want a driving shoe just pick up any pair of piloti or hell even a pair of vans work great. If you want a real nomex race boot well alpinestars, sparco, puma all make great stuff. Here is what I wear on the track

Piloti's - great shoe for driving and/or walking. I have several pair.

The Michelin shoes are what I wear to work - walk a lot. Hard wearing and comfortable. Decent driving shoe but the segmented sole can occasionally catch the edge of the pedal.

Same here, I put on my dress shoes and still do a great heel-toe rev matching. I put my left heel on the foot rest thingy, the right toes on the throttle and use the shift pedals for rev matching very easy

I have Ecco Cairns which are a great driving shoe that does not look like a typical driving shoe. You can wear them out on the town or on a high speed jaunt.

I have the Piloti nomex shoes and nomex driving gloves. So, if the shit hits the fan, they will recover nothing but my hands and feet intact! I won't be around, but it will be a funny story for someone!

I think if you turn up to a track day with Alpine Stars like that, you have to be really good, I mean really f**king good or you'll just look like a tool.

You can sometimes find them on sale on Endless.com.
Just keep in mind Piloti's seem to run 1/2 size small compared to Nike or dress shoes.
Some peole have found some funky colored Pilot's for $20 at places like TJMaxx or Marshall's.

What you do in the comfort of your own home is your own business.
