I've been using a beaten pair of Jordan 3's for years but it's time that I retire this pair now that the sole is starting to fall (shoe is from 2010).

Looking to see what some of you guys rock when driving, need something flat footed but also looks good and stylish :D

Been contemplating just picking up a pair of New Balance like Takumi or a pair of vans but open to anything else

When I was driving a manual before, I was using a Puma speedcat low top driving shoes. But sometimes my loafers are just fine as well.😂

You use the vans oldskools? Kind of want hi tops but I feel it's going to be a pain to tie everytime, kinda just want a shoe I can slip on in 2 secs

I just got a pair of Piloti shoes. Theyre great, just wish they had wider sizes.

I was wearing Onitsuka Tigers for a long time. They were great for pedal feel.

VANS Slip On ...they are mine go to shoes on a budged, they are thin, light and comfy and if you get one in black on black color, they can be passed as decent shoes for more formal stuff :ninja:

Sometimes I'll end up driving in some Chelsea boots. Just depends on where I'm going and like what I'm wearing, but you can toss them on really easy.

Somewhat low profile DC's. Love them. It makes sense IMO, the flat sole helps me as well as them being relatively thin soled to help w/ board feel tends to help w/ clutch feel as well. Whenever I wear dress shoes I leave my house w/ my DC's and swap to the dress shoes when I arrive at the location lol.

I like my Chucks and I like my Onitsuka Tiger Mexico '66s (the Bruce Lee/Kill Bill low tops)

I also have a pair a Sperry mocs that I like

Flip flops and boots are the worst. My wide caveman feet are too clumsy for clunky shoes
