Can I Wear my Elevator Shoes When Driving?
Driving is an intricate activity that requires one to be in tip-top shape to be able to execute the task accordingly. Footwear is an important aspect of driving. In most countries, it is required by law that you should wear closed and flat shoes when driving. This means that you should not wear sandals or heels when driving your car. There are valid reasons for these laws but to answer the burning question, yes, you can wear your elevator shoes when driving; with limitations of course.
Pedal movements and pressure
When driving, it is important for the driver to feel the amount of pressure he is applying on the brake or accelerator pedal in order to have total control of the car. Shoes with thin soles enable the driver to feel the amount of pressure they are applying on the pedals. As such, it is often advisable to wear shoes with soles that are Not thicker than 10cm, this is roughly 4 inches.
GuidoMaggi elevator shoes for men and women come in varying levels of elevation starting from 0 to 6 inches and more. Notably, the buyer has the chance to choose their preferred elevation, which we often advise new users to start small. As such, elevator shoes with an elevation of 4 inches are well within the safety range for driving.
The elevation concept of heels makes it hard for the driver to estimate pressure due to the disparity in elevation with the toes lying low and the heels standing well of the ground. As such, the driver’s estimation of pressure is thrown off due to the difference in elevation on the shoes. Elevator shoes are often uniformly raised hence the pressure applied on the pedals is spread uniformly across the shoe.
Driving shoes should secure your feet in such a way that your feet do not move off the shoe when in use. With sandals, your feet are open hence any movement may land your feet outside the shoe, which means that you will not have proper control of the pedals when driving. GuidoMaggi height increasing shoes come in various styles including sneakers, dress shoes, and boots, which are all closed and ideal for driving. The closed nature of these shoes means that your feet sit snugly inside the shoe and movement is restricted when in use.
Additionally, GuidoMaggi elevator shoes have inbuilt insoles, meaning that they are secure inside the shoe. As such, there is no opportunity for the insoles to move the wrong way when you are driving.
Driving in elevator shoes is as safe as driving in normal shoes. The key is to pick the right height of elevation for your driving shoes to ensure maximum security and comfort.
