After wearing out my pair of Nike 6.0 air zoom oncores (which were awesome) I was in need of a new every day shoe. Forsake has always looked cool so I got the Pilots.
Fit: My Nike's were a 10.5 and fit me very well. I am generally a size 9.5 or 10 in most shoes. I got the Pilots in a 10 and they fit great out of the box. I would suggest sizing down a half size or even a full size. After wearing them a bunch, they pack out as every piece of footwear does. They are a bit big now. They also do not snug up very tightly because the shoes are so stiff.
Durability: I have trudged through snow, slush, deep puddles, dirt, you name it. My feet have yet to become wet or even damp. This is great if you spend much of your time outdoors in the winter. You can spill beer on them and jump in puddles with no worry. The toes are becoming a little scuffed up but that is normal wear and tear. Will the Pilots hold up to pressure washing boats like my Nikes did? That'll have to wait for the summer but I bet they will.
Warmth / Breathability: My feet have not gotten cold, nor have they overheated. I always wear Smartwool socks which helps a ton with both of those issues. My shoes do not stink and they are not steaming when I take them off. Combine a good wool sock with a good shoe and you are set for any adventure.
