Our colleagues at Motor Authority have written a great overview of driving shoes -- that is, shoes specifically made to enhance the fun, ease, and safety of driving. However, the article does beg some questions: for example, will a $200 pair of Pilotis really enhance our driving experience? Sure, they're lighter, but are they lighter than, say, going barefoot? And speaking of: is it really illegal to drive barefoot? According to some old-ish data we found online, no, it's totally okay. Trashy, perhaps, but okay. [MotorAuthority]

  1. Driving Barefoot is not at all illegal - at least in North America, and most other countries. I would argue that it is by far the safest way to drive. You always know where the pedals are, and how hard you press down. You have the best control. It's also wonderfully comfortable
