Let us talk about the dos and the don’ts when choosing a pair (or more) of driving shoes. And how to find shoes that can provide comfort during long hours of driving automobiles.
The Dos and Don’ts:
- The sole of the shoe is crucial to determine what type of footwear to use. The insole should neither be too thick or too thin.
- It should not be too soft or too flexible. The shoes need to have enough grip on the pedal to avoid slipping.
- It should be lightweight to enable easy movement.
- It should not hinder ankle movement in working various pedals.
- It should not be unnecessarily wide as to cause stepping on two pedals at the same time.
The best way to avoid shoe problems is to carry a spare pair – either we choose an old pair of shoes or get a new one that is both comfortable and safe. But it doesn’t have to be those ugly, grandma type shoes that are clunky in appearance and often ruin the look of our outfit. A great pair of driving shoes are not only designed for practicality and comfort, but it should also come with style.
Here are a few style suggestions for your driving shoes:
- Pair it with skinny jeans and a t-shirt for a great casual look in your day of running errands.
- Pair them with shorts or boyfriend jeans, a shirt or bohemian blouse for a day out with friends to the movies or brunch.
- Pair those formal driving shoes to work with trousers and it will keep you comfortable all day long, especially if you have to stand for long hours.
Depending on your style, you can find hundreds of options to pair with your driving shoes. Of course, don’t forget, driving shoes are designed to provide long-lasting comfort. It is important to get the right shoe for your road trips or travelling for work.
