    Driving shoes?

    So what's the story on driving shoes? Are they worth the investment? I've always wore sneakers in the past, but I'm trying to learn heel and toe, and sneakers just seem too bulky to heel and toe effectively. I was thinking of perhaps getting the Simpson low-tops, as I would think they'd be more comfortable. Is a high-top preferrable? Enquiring minds want to know..:)

    Is this for DEs? If so, i'd look at the pilotis if you want to spend $100. if you dont want to spend $100 old-fashioned Keds and Chuck Taylors work well. Wrestling shoes are also a good budget choice. I agree the typical modern 'athletic' shoe is way too bulky for easy heel-n-toe, esp. if your car has a small pedal box or you have big feet.

    If its for racing, i like the extra protection of high tops. other than comfort it looks to me like they are all pretty much the same. I have OMPs since they were more comfortable on my feet than the Simpsons.

    I have the Simpson low tops. Very lightweight--

    I like them a lot. Plastic sole and heel combo--they dont last long walking on pavement, but great in the car.<br><img src="http://members.roadfly.com/CSL/vir1.jpg" height=99 width=155>

    Give these a thought...

    I wear them and think they are great.
    They are featherweight, extremely flexible (perfect for heel/toe work), good grip and not expensive. And, they give plenty of support for walking around after getting to where you're going. Also they are cool on the feet, meaning they breathe.
    I got mine from Dic k's Sporting Goods.
