Hello my name is Michael and I need your guys' help for my project. I'm trying to head towards the footwear industry and so for my project I want to head towards footwear used in autocross, drifting and driving. I know right now in the market there are shoes that professionals use but it seems like for the more common car enthusiast they end up using shoes with thinner soles. So my questions are How important is footwork and the driver's feel and contact with the pedals for drifting? (Were there times you lost an event due to footwork?) What type of shoes do you usually wear to drift, drive for events? IF not driving shoes, why not actual driving shoes? Is the aesthetic of the shoe the problem or the price or both? What makes driving shoe different from regular shoes? If driving shoes became more marketed, more aesthetically appealing and also cost efficient, would you guys buy driving shoes? Thank you guys! If possible please be as descriptive as possible.
