I've been driving in a soft pair of moccasins for the last year or so. Soft bottoms work best for me.

Maybe some day I'll buy a pair of racing shoes.

you should have made a poll of puma, nike, reebok, adidas, etc... but i agree i'm using puma's!

in fact they are old and worn down but i refuse to drive without them. my dress shoes aren't bad but the heel area catches the carper and sometimes causes a rough shift. been driving to work in dress suit and puma's... then swap into my dress shoes after i park huehue

my least favourite shoes to drive in right now are my nike KD's... they are wide and thick cushioned soles. so no clutch feel and the worst was one time i hit the clutch the side caught the brakes and not the most pleasent shift. it was a one and done thing

My Nike shoes for sure. When I wear boots I cant feel the clutch very easily.

Anything light; I don't own any Puma's or anything like that. I have some Sperry (not the fratboy boating shoes) casual shoes that work well and also I like my Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max's really well.

I do not like to where my Johnston and Murphy dress shoes or Nike Air Max's.

Guilty of the following... terrible for walking more than 1/2 mile.
Great for driving all day.

I have a mix between two of my more oftenly used pair of shoes.
While I am driving to work I wear:
-Calvin Klein Black designer shoes
-Hugo Boss Black designer shoes
(funny thing is I can feel the clutch best in these shoes but sometimes if my foot is too high on the clutch the pointed or slim squared tip of my shoe will catch the dash or catch on the top of the clutch, but that hasn't happened since I like first got the car haha got used avoiding doing that)
While I am driving in laid back clothes:
Nike High Tops

Nike Free Runs. I make sure they all match my NISMOs. Really good for autoX and track
