Question Driving shoes

Do you have special driving shoes? What's a good brand? Something that will grip my pedals best.

there is no real "driving shoe" for regular driving but i know for race car driving puma shoes are used...they are more of a tight fit around your foot to make it easier to heel toe and not hit a pedal by accident...hope this helps

Puma, Piloti, and Addidas all make some nice driving shoes.

I have a couple pair of Simpson (no, not Homer and Bart's) pit crew shoes. They are kind of like sneakers, but not. They are very comfortable. Simpson makes regular driving shoes also. The racing shoes are fire resistant, etc. Check them out.

The great British racing driver Stirling Moss used to use boxing shoes, but this was before the time of big specialized shoe manufacturers.
