    No More Shoes!

    Living in south Florida, I've preferred being barefoot more than wearing shoes since I was a toddler. When I was a kid, all my neighborhood friends and I would run around without shoes on. We'd skateboard, ride bikes, play kickball, all while being barefoot. So I guess it was...

    Hobbit On The Road

    I love to drive barefoot. I've been a "hobbit", like my husband calls me, all my life. A good pair of shoes can be very comfy, but most aren't and nothing compares to actually feeling the ground beneath you. Anyway, on to driving. I like to be able to feel the pedal with my foot...

    I'm Short.

    I wear heels almost everywhere I go except the gym or stuff like that, cuz I hate feeling short, but I don't like driving with them on. My friends tease me about driving barefoot, but it just feels so much safer and more comfortable than trying to manage the pedals in 3-inch...

    Driving Manual Barefoot Is The Only Way To Go

    I enjoy driving manual transmission vehicles and driving barefoot. Combining them both gives me superior control. I can feather the clutch so much better, and I feel like I'm more one with the vehicle. I notice a huge difference when I wear shoes driving - they are so heavy and...

    So Comfortable On A Long Road Trip

    I used to travel distances over 500 miles quite a bit. After being in the car all day, I don't know what it was, but my feet always felt nasty, like I had been running a marathon or hiking all day, when I arrived where I was going. So, I started driving in socks in the winter...

    Sole to Soul

    Barefoot is the only way to drive. I can feel the engine hum under my foot through the gas pedal when I accelerate. I've taken more trips than I can count and gone the whole way barefoot.

    Shoes Get In The Way

    I love being barefoot so it feels natural to me as well. I’m not allowed to drive, but I can. When my father goes to the farms or if we’re on a road-trip, he’ll let me drive when we’re on a ‘deserted’ road. Whether I’m wearing trainers...

    Barefoot to School

    When I was going to college I would always wear slippers. On the drive to school and home I always slid them off. I even liked to take them off while i was in class, but barefoot driving is nice u can really feel the pedal.

    The Only Way to Drive!

    I drive barefoot so much that I can't drive with shoes on anymore! I even take my sandals off when I drive the Autopia cars at Disneyland ;)

    *wiggles Toes*

    I like to drive barefoot, particularly on a hot day so that my feet can cool off and stretch out.  I also tend to wear sandals, and sometimes it's just safer to slip off those slippery things before driving.

    I just got home from visiting my friend.

    I had a 10 hour drive home and I drove home in my bare feet. I pumped gas in my bare feet went it to pay for it barefoot and it was so comfy driving home in my bare feet.

    Highway To The Danger Zone

    I drive barefoot simply because I think it's safer. If I can feels the pedals under my soles, wrap my toes over the edges, then we're all okay because I know my response time is good. I even drove a damn Uhaul truck in my bare feet recently and, as nervous as I was about...

    Off Go The Flip Flops!

    Whenever I wear flip flops, the first thing I do when I get in the car is kick them off! That's pretty much from March until into November up here in the northeast. It's so comfortable and I've never had a safety or legal issue. In fact, you have so much more feeling and traction...

    Driving Barefoot

    For me I simply cannot stand driving with shoes and socks on. I wear size 16 men's shoes and, considering the car I drive, it's almost impossible for me to shift from the gas to the brake easily. Since the one time I decided to drive to a local market barefoot, I've become an...

    Barefoot

    I cannot explain it, but if it is anything over a short 20 minute trip or so, I just feel compelled to go barefoot. Most of the time I wear these clogs which have a rubber sole, and a leather upper and I can slip them off with ease. So while driving for any length of time, I kick...

    Drive Barefoot

    I think I learnt to drive a car barefoot- because I was wearing inappropriate footwear, I'd just take them off. Although they do say it's not safe to drive barefoot, I think it is MUCH safer. It sure feels safer than shoes. When you wear shoes you lose the feeling...

    Love Driving Barefoot

    There's nothing like the feel of driving a car with your barefeet. I started to drive barefoot sometime after I got my driver's license. It feels super comfortable and you are more relaxed and in control of the car. Whenever I have to get gas, I'm not embarassed to pump gas while...

    I always drive in barefeet now,

    I think it is so much more comfortable. I also think it's much safer as you can fully feel the pedals with your barefeet rather than through some thick soles of shoes or boots. It does make me laugh at some of the strange looks you get I. service stations when you get out of the...

    I dislike shoes.  That's all there is to it.  And even though I think it's against the rules to drive sans shoes, I really don't care.  If I've had a long day and am wearing shoes that are easy to slip off and on, my feet are bare before I get the key in the...

    Easier

    I find it easier to drive barefoot. I think its because I can actually feel the pedals, not just use them by knowing where they are. I also reckon that bond between man and machine becomes greater.

    Driving Barefoot Is The Best

    I dive barefoot all the time. I don't wear shoes often so barefoot driving is just natural. It is comfortable and over long drives creates less fatiguing. What a great way to go!

    I so love to drive with my shoes off. I may drive once in a while with my shoes on. Barefoot is the best way to drive. It is really hard where I live to find girls that will drive barefoot. It is frowned upon here. I don't know why, but it is. Girls make some barefoot driving...

    One of my favorite things to do is take off my

    sneakers and socks, flats, sandals or heels and just drive barefoot. I have ever since I was a teenager. My veins pop out and the toes and arches look so cute.

    Bare Footin It

    I'm barefoot all the time, so it makes sense that I also drive barefoot. Its nice not having to put shoes on to go somewhere. I like driving that way because I feel I have better control over the car, I can sense how much pressure to apply to the peddles which makes for smoother...

    I'm barefoot 24/7 down here in New Zealand, so driving for me is always done in barefeet. Absolutely no need to have shoes on at all, would far rather enjoy the barefoot lifestyle. Certainly not illegal here in NZ to drive barefoot, and I cant really believe it is illegal up in...
