I don't know if anyone else notices this, but figured I'd ask - I LOVE driving barefoot. I always drive better when my feet are in direct contact with the pedals. I guess it's the fact that I can pay closer attention to the feel of the clutch, but losing the 5 lb pair of Doc Marten's makes a huge difference. Am I weirder than I already think?

i typically wear the same pair of shoes all the time. Black Reebok Classics. and unless i'm wearing those i feel wierd driving my car. other shoes, sandals, barefoot? don't like it. it's not that i can't do it, it just doesn't feel right. i dunno, maybe i'm the wierd one.

I don't think it's legal here is Washington. Something about being dangerous if you stick you foot while driving or something.

I know of some states where there is a law stating that it is illegal to drive barefooted.

Then again...I know of a state where a law was created stating it is illegal to [censored] a racoon.

my car feels totally different when i drive barefoot, the clutch feels like a brick trying to push it in. And my foot doesnt feel right on the gas. It just freaks me out all together. I jerk the car like i just learned how to drive a stick

It's those Docs that kill your pedal feel. I wear Piloti shoes all over the place, and they work beautifully. I wouldn't do any long-distance running in them, but they're great for driving.
Driving Barefoot is just Not Right. It IS Somewhat Unsafe.
The Piloti's are GREAT, but a Bit Expensive.
I wear ASICS Wrestling shoes as "Driving Shoes". They're shaped the same and have the same thin soles for pedal feel, but w/o the added expensive of fire-proofing. I can drive just fine in my combat boots, but the ASICS just feel more like "Driving Gloves" for the Feet.

i wear sandals in the summer mostly (when i'm not at work) and when i drive i wear thin New Balance running shoes... helps with my heel toe shifting a lot, and pedal feel. i'd like some piloti's but the price keeps me at bay.

barefoot? i've done it, but dont feel it safe.
