Puma Vedano Driving Shoe Review

I'd rather drive barefoot, but I got a good price on a set of snazzy Pumas. Fancy, yet painful)

I see no point in an overly-expensive shoe meant just for driving.

I'm partial to steel toed boots myself. My gauges show me how much to press or let off pedals.

Be carefull when removing shoes, if you brake or corner hard, one may end up under the brake pedal. And the next time you try to brake “oh noooo”

Your feet must be smaller than mine. Boots start being a problem in many cars for me, often catching the widest part of the sole on the brake pedal when applying gas or clutch. Size 13W...

Even so, I hardly worry about it. I just drive with whatever shoes I happen to be wearing.
