Barefoot shoes for Driving... yep.

Hurray, we're going on a trip! Barefoot shoes are perfect for driving too.

Summer is here, the time for vacations, travel, and hiking. However, it's important to consider the type of footwear we wear during long car rides, and barefoot shoes are ideal for driving. Driving a car is a highly responsible task, as a single wrong move or distraction can lead to accidents. Eliminate any distractions and wear our shoes even while driving!

Driving is a dangerous activity!

No matter what type of car you have, you need to use your feet when driving. In cars with manual transmission, the left foot operates the clutch, while the right foot controls the gas and brake pedals. It's a complex operation that requires physical and mental attention. If your car has cruise control, it can make driving easier as it takes over the pedal functions on highways and low-traffic roads, and you only need to intervene in unexpected situations.

In cars with automatic transmission, the left foot is in a fortunate position as it can rest throughout the journey. However, the right foot still operates two pedals, so it's crucial to wear comfortable shoes!

What footwear NOT to wear while driving?

High-heeled shoes are very dangerous as they keep your feet in an unnatural position and the soles are often slippery. Thick platform shoes are also unsuitable for driving, as it becomes nearly impossible to smoothly operate the clutch and accelerator pedals.

Leather-soled shoes can be slippery, and during sudden braking, your foot can slide off the pedal, potentially hindering your ability to stop the car, not to mention the consequences.

Barefoot shoes are perfect for driving too

If you take a look at our women's shoe collection, you'll see that the soles are non-slip, so you don't have to worry about your feet slipping while using the pedals. Additionally, all our shoes are extremely comfortable, so your feet won't get tired or swollen during long journeys. The thinner sole allows you to accurately feel the position of the pedals, giving you full control over the vehicle during acceleration and throughout the drive.

Long journeys should be enjoyable experiences, not challenges!

If you're heading out on a summer trip, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing and shoes that meet the aforementioned requirements. The Leguano Amalfi White is a perfect choice as it has a feminine and stylish lace pattern that complements any outfit. It's comfortable to wear all day, and even after reaching your destination, you'll be happy to continue walking in them as they won't tire your feet.

In addition to being fashionable and stylish, they meet all the requirements for driving as they have small bumps on the sole for better traction.

Tips for long drives

Dress comfortably, layer your clothing, and wear comfortable shoes.
Get a good night's sleep the previous night, and it's best not to work on the day before the trip.
Calculate your travel time so that you can take breaks every 1-2 hours.
Stop if you feel tired, drowsy, hungry, or thirsty.
Plan your rest stops in advance, and you can even incorporate sightseeing or a lunch break.
Pack some snacks, energy bars, chocolates, and water in the car.
Adjust your car seat and steering wheel height properly.
Prepare your favorite music or audiobooks to make the journey enjoyable.

Remember, the journey to your destination is not just a waste of time. Enjoy the trip, create memories along the way! And don't forget to bring your favorite shoes because barefoot shoes are perfect for driving. Spend your vacation together and enjoy life!
