In my opinion, footwear for automatic cars doesnt matter too much for safety and performance reason.
What magic are you seeking? And what type of performance driving are you doing such that your dress shoes do not do the business?
Whatever you do on a daily basis can be done in dress shoes, manual or automatic. Are they the best? No.
But I do not see the manual causing much of a difference if you drove with your dress shoes in your automatic days.
Unless you are heel toeing while in traffic but then your beautiful shoes will be ruined.
Honestly, I think this question is a bit much.
If you want to do laps wear some racing boots or some similar type substitutes that I prefer.
For safety, the biggest issue with a shoe(and this can surely happen) is the gas and brake movement which applies to automatics.
Overall, while you are sitting in traffic or cruising an easy highway on a public road, if you don't mind the wear on your shoes, your Quadrifoglios will be suitable to get you from A to B
with the same 'performance'.
