    Gimmicks or Useful?

    Do any of you guys wear driving shoes or mocs when driving distances or on a track?
    Given the left foot braking, heel/toe and other techniques you guys use and having seen so many driving shoes or "mocs" advertised in catalogs, one wonders.

    And to the guys who do the more advanced techniques: are there any qualities you look for in a shoe that you're going to be driving alot in?

    To me a shoe must be comfortable to wear and most important, light enough to be able to run back up the road to get help.

    I agree with David the main differences between normal shoes & race wear seem to be lack of heel on the race "Boots" as most are just that presumably so that the heel can't foul the pedals and the tongue is sewn in so that no hot water etc. can't penetrate the footwear, the soul is of light weight leather also, i'm told so the driver has better feel of the pedals. I prefer good quality lace up shoes unles you're into full race competition where boots & glove would be req'd
