Barefoot Feet While Driving

In the summertime… do you drive with your shoes on, or your shoes off?

See the full-size original photo below…

In the summer months, when I’m tyipcally sockless and/or wearing sandals, I always drive barefoot!

In the winter months… unless I’m wearing lace-up hiking boots or something, I usually kick off my shoes whenever I’m driving.

I think this silly ritual started years ago when someone convinced me that the right heels of your shoes wear out faster than the heels on your left shoes — from driving!

For the most part, this is true. Especially if you buy cheap shoes like me, you can unevenly wear out the corner soles of a pair of shoes in no time.

So, I look at it this way:
My barefoot driving habit has saved me a fortune on new shoes!

So, is it illegal to drive barefoot? This video provides some food for thought about barefoot driving:

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I frequently write about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed several years until switching gears to pursue things I was more passionate about. I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.

    In summertime I always drive barefoot. Even in the winter after the inside of the car warms up enough.

    I Looove driving with no shoes on! I started in my early 20’s when i lived in jackson Nj. going to the beach all the time and stuff. But now i drive to work and everywhere with no shoes. I do drive with socks on most of the time. Unless im barefooted already then i jus drive. And if i am wearing shoes i usually jus take them off. it helps me too because there is not much legroom in my car. And i have long legs so eevry inch helps.

      Hey there,

      I really like your comments about driving barefoot.  I think you have a good taste.  You can e-mail me at  I mostly go barefoot as much as possible.  When I’m around my family, I wear shoes.  I have started to run barefoot.  When I’m at work, I wear my combat boots.  I work at IKEA.  Once again, your comments are good.  I have a question for you.  How long have you gone barefoot :P:P?
