Yup, King's brand to be exact.
If that high cut type, cant feel a thing as i tried last time during a fishing trip.
The fishmonger boot is worse as u migh get your feet stuck in between the pedal.
Now, no safety boots anymore. Trade it with formal shoe which sucks for driving.
Plus, will damage the heel side faster.



there is reason why driving shoes got "tapak" at the heel also....


as we can see here from sparco or puma driving shoes

Hi all, kinda new here =)

I'm familiar with the heel n toe technique, but somehow I don't see the advantage of it when I'm driving. Maybe it's because I can't quite get the rev/speed ratio spot on all the time yet, or maybe it's because my car's old... because somehow my engine braking seems pretty strong if I dun step on the accelerator.... meaning to say as long as I'm not stepping on the gas, my car slows down pretty fast... so even if I heel and toe, once I go into 3rd/2nd gear and continue braking, the car decelerates too fast.... lol

Personally I just do double clutching and leave the car on neutral (pressing clutch) while downshifting and rev matching..., no brakes, hehe... Unless I'm doing it wrongly???

It does help even in normal driving, as it contributes to reduction in overall wear and tear of your clutch and transmission.

One other important factor to take into account with regards to heel and toe is the differing throttle responses of different cars. Because smooth execution of heel and toe is dependent to almost split-second timing, you actually need to familiarize yourself with the clutch's biting point as well as the engine's throttle response - how quickly and easily does it build up revs.

Mine also just do double clutching when braking is not required (the basic of executing heel and toe technique is from double clutching technique), not only downshift at higher speed/engine rpm, sometimes i even do it when upshift at higher engine speed (>3.5k rpm, even light touch/not pressing the throttle further also can reach that engine speed at 1st and 2nd gear)
