Anything but my work boots... 1, because my work boots are full of oil and grease. 2, because they suck to drive in.

I don’t wear anything special to drive, but if I’m wearing sandals, I try to drive less aggressive. Barefoot is actually really nice to drive, just takes a second to get used to.

You guys wear special shoes to drive? I've driven in sneakers, dress shoes, boots, and everything in between. Didn't know it was such a special occasion that required special footwear... Off the track and not in a race car.
Yeah I drive in heavy traffic every day so I like a dedicated pair of shoes for driving, pedal feel is a lot better for me if I'm using the same shoes everyday

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
High tops usually but honestly anything vans and I'm in. Love feeling the pedals through my shoes. Feels almost as real as old clutch work.

Link’s iron boots. Jk. I currently wear water resistant hiking shoes. I tend to like heavier shoes. Makes it easier to press the clutch especially driving for 8+hrs

I have a pair of Nike Flyknit Racers in the "acai berry" colorway that are my extra-breathable to & from the gym shoes. They're light weight & narrow and make for solid driving shoes.

careful driving in flip-flops they have a way of getting tangled up in the pedals.
