Bare foot gives the best feel and easy to modulate the pressure but it is highly inconvenient and unpractical. I think bit flexible shows is the best option and it should not be having a very slippery surface.

There was a discussion about this earlier. Few people getting fined in Bengal and Punjab - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...-slippers.html (Police fine for riding with your slippers on?)

I use this pair by Woodland while driving and find them to be comfortable and easy to flick between the Accelerator and brake pedal.

This thread's title says "Ideal Footwear for Driving" but beginning from the first post it has become more of "What do you wear while driving".. We could have a poll added to the thread just to get to know what most Indians wear while driving.

I hate wearing anything that doesn't fit snug on my feet. Slippers/Sandals are a no-no. Its mostly old (little worn out) flat sole Puma sneakers which are also the only kind of shoes I wear apart from when I am in the gym.

I have found that the rounded shape and good cushioning of the heel (Like the woodland shoes posted above) provides good comfort for me. Otherwise the heels start getting numb as the feet are rested on the floor-pan for a longer duration.

For me something heavier works well for Vento and anything goes well for Civic. The heavier clutch in Vento needs something thick and strong since a softer sole bends and is inconvenient for the knees also.
