I noticed a long time back that my wife kicked her heels off to drive. She usually has some slipper shoes under the seat that she slips her feet into when driving. I often drive in cowboy boots and don't mind that at all.

I should take them off, I ruin shoes a lot driving in them and my floor mat. I wear heels a lot for work, so sometimes I have flip flops for after work. I guess I should stop driving in them, I just buy more...

it is possible to drive in heels. However where I come from it is illegal and if they see you you get a ticket. The reason for that is, that you have less ability to move and react quickly in heels. This can have negative affects in case of an emergency. I would recommend to keep a pair of flats in the car and wear those just to be on the safe side. Why risk it.

I think most of us do things without giving it any thought. Unless I'm riding with someone, Heels/Flatforms for me are uncomfortable to drive in. I usually put on flats or sneakers when I'm running around or driving.
Driving barefoot, obviously you girls didn't have a father like mine. I would have never heard the end of it...lol

Driving shoeless in NYS is illegal...also driving without a shirt on . . . Go figure.



Sensible shoes while driving, what A novel idea. Wish the rest of the population could use that kind of logic.dontknow

I have no problem driving in heels. Although, I sometimes scuff them,which makes me angry.

I have never had any problem driving in heels, nor has driving damaged my shoes in my last few cars. In one of my older cars, I used to switch to a "driving shoe" because the mat would scuff the back of the right shoe, but I have not had a problem in my recent cars.

I drive with my heels on every day. Not always my CFMs though. Never had a problem. In South Louisiana the worst thing we have to deal with is rain. On the very rare occasion we have ice on the roads I stay at home. Good excuse to spend the day just being lazy.

I love to drive barefoot (illegal in Iowa!) or in slippers.

If I ever drive in heels you all will be the first to know how it went.

When I was learning to drive, I always took off my right shoe because I had a better sense of pressure on the gas pedal. I am not sure whether that was illegal in NJ (where I learned to drive) or not.

High heels are dangerous when driving. I have heard of more tail Enders caused by the heel preventing the brake being applied hard and fast enough suddenly.
I wear low heels or kick the shoe off and put them in the passenger side or seat so as not to impede the operation of the controls. I left foot brake so I need both feet to operate the controls properly.
If I drive a manual. Then a heel certainly impedes the satisfactory full depression of the clutch.

Easy peasy I learned to drive in heels... I had too, I'm so short... I have more trouble driving in flats though the only flats I ever wear are trainers and rarely because then everyone would know how short I really am Embarassed
