Yeah it's odd that they're wide like that.

I'm now looking closer at those Pumas and thinking that they probably have more rubber than I'll want. Maybe I should just get some leather loafers and pretend I'm Senna.

I have a set of loafers with really thin soles that are the best driving shoes I've ever had. Problem is, they don't work for standing for long periods.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

I have a pair of Puma driving shoes that I rarely wear - easier to just wear my Vans for everything.

AutoX days, I do switch shoes, doe. Running for cones in thin-soled shoes hurts.

I used to wear Pumas. Then either my feet got wider, or they started making them more narrow.

Wrastlin' shoes wouldn't be a bad option for driving shoes. Thin, flexible, and grippy.

I did not realize the discussion of driving shoes was so in depth.

I usually wear cowboy boots or military boots. Then again I have no track experience to warrant dedicated driving shoes.

Will any tennis shoe with a uniform sole work? Or is there a science to this?

there is a science but "any tennis shoe with a uniform sole" gets you 90% there and is WAY better feel.

:dat:

Reasonably narrow, snug fitting, and a thin sole. Lots of inexpensive shoes fall into that category.

Just like gloves, helmets, etc, everyone has their own preferences

FWIW I just measured all of the shoes for the hell of it. Width at widest point of toe box:

118mm Brooks running shoes that I normally wear all spring/summer/fall
105mm Goodyear Ori posted earlier
99mm Puma Future Cat SuperLT posted earlier
98mm Alpinestars karting shoes

So putting my feet next to each other on pedals, the Pumas have 19mm less "shoe" taking up space between my feet than my regular shoes. Big difference when trying to do left foot braking.

The Goodyear is a better shoe than this particular Puma, it just is too wide for me. I'm debating returning the Puma too but dunno yet. It's incredibly annoying how many different Puma models there are, how most of them have Ferrari/BMW/Mercedes badging, and how very few sellers seem to have them in a decent range of sizes.

I need wider shoes, so they're perfect for me.

I loved my Pumas when they fit, but agreed how ridiculous the branding is. I bet it's all Max wears.

What size do you need? The size 11 goodyears I have are past their return period and I'm guessing they're not going to take them back. Wife ordered them at Thanksgiving but didn't give them to me until Valentine's... and forgot about the 30 day return policy. :troywax:

Bruh...DFD linebacker. Size 13...sometimes 14 depending on the shoe/brand.

Talk about not being able to dance on the pedals. When you have pontoons for feet, it's pretty :|

I figured as much. DFD average :dong: size is 12" to go with the $100/hr incomes and daily marathon post-pinshitting :dock: sessions.

Been driving the car more now that temps are regularly over freezing. It's definitely a great single car compromise. After flushing/bleeding the brakes they feel pretty good for sliders, the ABS system seems better than the Spyder's too.

9000 rpm really does not get old, similar to the way that V8 noises do not get old. You can actually cruise at 7000 in this thing, the smoothness is real. I'm still averaging 16 mpg. :whocares:

I can't wait to get out to autox but we still have awhile to go. First event isn't until 3/25.

Yea I :member: this thing, I really liked the clutch/shifter and the epic smoothness. Rpms don’t matter. Gas is cheap :aintcare: it will never be this cheap again
