    I mostly drive while wearing a shoe and socks, but for the instances that I'm forced to drive with a chappal, I put them off and drive barefooted. I feel that I get much more feedback from the pedals while driving in that way.

    I made this thread because I read some posts which had people saying that they once drove a vehicle without shoes and the experience was very bad, because they couldn't get any feedback.

    Any such experience here?

    This is just a matter of the driving style one is used to. Also, it is true to a certain extent that you can sense the slightest vibration when you drive barefooted.

    It depends on the way your feel comfortable in diving the car and confidence in your driving skills.

    I usually drive wearing sandals. But in the long distance drives, when I get tired use bare foots. With bare foots, I always feel that the feedback is more.

    While driving bare foots, please make sure that your sandals or shoes not at all near the pedals. If you keep them near to pedals, there is always possibility that it will obstruct the use of pedals.
  7. I don't feel comfortable driving bare foot in bumper to bumper trafic. If I am wearing shoes, I always drive with them. If I am wearing loose chappals or sandals, I remove them.

    I prefer driving with footwear on and shoes particularly. Find it a bit uncomfortable with sandals and chappal and very uncomfortable with bare feet (only tried once and then quit).

    I like driving wearing shoes only, what so ever kind of they are bulky sole or light sole. I don't like driving bare footed or slippers/sandals.
