sim shoes or sneakers
Bloody hell, I'm 12.5... you must be part of the Marshall Eriksen family
I started using shoes a few years ago and there's no coming back now. I don't have proper racing shoes so I'm using futsal shoes but they do the trick just fine
I have to wear shoes with my Clubsport V2's. If I just go barefoot and my feet get a tiny bit moist I start sliding of the pedals when putting force on them and (if you hit stuff at a bad angle) cut yourself.
A bit the same with socks, you can't really put decent force on the pedals because you just slide of them
Socks, allways. I have two pairs just for racing, "racing socks"!
With shoes I fell nothing. And barefoot is unconfortable for me.
Stilettos ( They go with my ballgown )

Socks for me, simply socks...
(i was also using sock with my DFG, but on my new T500RS pedals i find it impossible to heel and toe in socks only)
Socks, but I`m with budd... during a long session my right foot can become a little sore when heel/toeing so I`m considering some kind of thin, flat slip on shoe...
After some research I use summer open walk shoes (from a well known Eu sport outlet, cheap, supple, confortable). Cheers.
I have used "reinforced" socks (homemade simracing socks) for years with the G27, now with T500 pedals (with homemade basherboard style mod) I started using Sparco racing shoes.
Heel&toe has now become a second nature , before it was just impossible.
I'll never go back.
How do you reinforce socks ;-)
Until CSP V2 socks were enough for me but once I went with load cell (and tuned to ca 60kgf pedal force), finally using racing shoes makes sense.
Inexpensive cork insole to put inside the socks or between two socks.
Worth a try ! Cheers
OK if you use left foot braking only and semiauto shifter.
Not good for right foot braking and manual shifter (with clutch).
Steve I think your forgetting something....
Everybody, this man PRC Steve wears RACING GLOVES on RF2 can you believe it? haha
