Almost all the time. Even in winter I tend to kick the shoes off and drive in socks.
Don't find any problems at all with feet slipping, as I can wrap my toes around the pedals I'd say it's less likely for me. Better feel too.

Only car that i don't like driving barefoot much is my wifes and that because the pedals seem to be a long way from the floor. Have to have my foot at quite a sharp angle between foot and shin. It would probably work well if I started wearing heels.

I would suggest not to, having had my feet slip off the pedals when trying once or twice. That said, KSOs are great for driving in...

Most of the time...  Is there another way...?  Grin

I have enough toe spread that I can "power brake" one footed. Tongue

just wondering if some of you gals and guys prefer to drive bare foot, for me it's more comfortable and natural and gives me a much better feed back from the vehicle,  once the engine warms it i quite prefer to drive pare foot when even i can, and in most states is legal, makes no sense for it being Gilligan anyway

i new for my self i may get notices wearing body glove branded shoes, they have a toe box rather the toe pockets, odd this body glove has great traction on a  roof
and i prefer to wear when on a roof, they have more traction then boots but do wear out faster but still my preference, they seem to be as flexible as vibrium but cheaper, less life but the do for me work well

Since i am kind of the odd dragon out as i dont yet own vibram so in the winter i wear new balance 801 clog, yeah they have too much cushion but i can still flex my foot as if in almost mocks. and the 801 has a removable foot bed so the chuck that into the washing machine some times hand wash them when i take a shower with just the hair soap on a wash cloth or tooth bush i find it does a fery good lob at cleaning the foot bed to avoid and new antibiotics in our shoes. i let the insoles dry infont of a fan or over a heat vent to dry them,  since i have allergies it's been recommenced i shower before bed that way i dont get all the dust and pollen in my pillow, so the insoles dry nice over the heat vents and seems to keep the shoes nice and clean, no smell of that sticky feeling when we know have gone too far with out cleaning. for this reason i dont by a shoe (except a mock) that does not have a removable foot bed. on the mocks a damp wash cloth cleans the quite well and just need to let the inside dry before really active wear.

I got into an argument about the series "legend of mick dodge" and flat out asked him what this guys problem was with no sock wear, i think i was the debate though( he was some what unaware that i dont wear socks unless it's snowing) and then explained how you can stay sanitary with out god damned socks, i got into the same thing with my parents too go figure

It looks like black is the only color but its still pretty awesome that they have decided to re-release them. Already bought mine.
Hopefully this time around, sales are much better due to the fact that after 10 years on the market popularity and knowledge of the products are more widespread.
maybe they'll stick around and add some new colors.

Hey, guys. I need some advice.
My new boss is pushing the rule for wearing Suregrip shoes at my job. She's cool and this isn't some high priority, but I procrastinated getting around to it and was reminded to order my shoes.
I tried one pair, horrible. Returned and got another variety shipped which was alright.

I've been wearing cheap Tesla shoes and plan on ordering some Chinese Feiyue in bulk.
I don't wanna spend $100 on single pairs of shoes disguised for my job. I like my ~$20-30 price range. My pants drag under the heel and I have to pull my pantlegs up when walking across wet areas (imagine how a girl would with a dress haha).
So, my idea is to try to slip under the radar by modding my Teslas or the Feiyues I plan to buy. Do you guys like Feiyue? I hope I order the right size...
And I'll buy shorter pants so it won't drag.

Our workplace allows a variety of Suregrip shoes from an order catalog.
I need advice on how to either mod my minimalist shoes or maybe mod my work shoes, or even some cheap alternatives.
Needs to have that glossy black leather look.

Over the last three years, reactions have ranged from "Wow! Where can I get some?" through to "Oh, yuck! How can you wear those things?"
