FWIW - I find them more comfortable to walk around in than boat-shoes..

The inner sole sounds like a good idea. I wish I read this a couple of hours ago. I just ordered some red suede RL driving shoes ($75). Wasn't to sure about red, until I saw bold colored driving shoes in Leon Magazine

The ones with rubber nubs on the soles are no good for walking. I like kicking around in the ones with rubber pads on the soles

Don't get me wrong, I think they're fine for driving or a summer party, but I wouldn't wear these for any length of time.
No more unhealthy than walking barefoot.

Yup. I've spent days travelling through various cities on foot wearing driving shoes. No problems.

I've done the same, and my feet were fine. However, it did affect the wear on the shoes.

But guys - I don't get the point of wearing driving shoes for driving. What's the point of them looking colourful or stylish? Is it about just the moment when you step out of your car? Or is it just for you to feel good whilst driving? Who can see your feet when you drive??

I have a pair of Tod's that has a full rubber sole at the bottom and a nubs at the heel .... One of the most comfortable shoes I have worn
