Asics wrestling shoes. Dirt cheap on ebay and actually look kinda nice. Gives you a great feel, some of you should try them out. Sure, they aren't flame retarded but at least they're cheap.

LA Geat $10 special at TJ Maxx. They look like the adidas goodyear driving style shoe. Just not $80 like the adidas ones.

I have a pair of wrestling shoes for karting. Love them. Haven't tried them in the Miata, though; always been afraid of the sole not being wide enough to heel-toe.

I find it easier to heel toe with the asics because the heel is actually smaller.

Heard that. I hate driving with normal shoes in the miata. It's a real trying to get on the brake while pushing the gas at the same time (without the clutch depressed). The narrow LAs i have solved that for me. Maybe one day i'll get some real driving shoes. These cheap ones have good hard soles and don't look bad at all though.

I have some old *** black speedcats which get track duty.

I always keep them in the car because I can't really drive the miata with cowboy boots.

Simpson Low tops....I have wide feet and these were the only ones I could find that fit decent. Saferacer had them on sale last year for about $50 shipped. Not the cheapest, but pretty cheap for a SFI fire retardant shoe.

I drive barefoot every so often, it hurts on long trips, but its nice when wearing sandals or something you can get on/off real nice...

I wear some old track shoes, or my Sambas when Auto-xing though.
