Great Everyday Driving Shoes for under $100

I love a good pair of driving shoes, but the problem with most driving shoes, is they look like driving shoes. While companies like Piloti are making driving shoes look much more stylish, the niche nature means they generally come with a higher price tag and you can't find a retailer where you can try them on before you buy them.

Here are six great shoes from mainstream shoe brands that double as great driving shoes, for under $100. 

Adidas Gazelle 

The classic Adidas Gazelle was first introduced in 1991 with the trademark three-stripe pattern with rear heel tab. The narrow profile is perfect for heel-toe driving, while its iconic style speaks for itself. If you want to spend a little more, starting at $100, you can custom order your own color combo.

Available in three colors:


Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Post Game Leather Low Top

The classic Chuck Taylor has long been a favorite of drivers, classic style, great pedal feel, and it was good enough for everyone's favorite on-screen street racer Brian O'Conner. The leather version dresses up the casual classic sports shoe and can be customized for an upcharge to make a personal style statement.

Available in three colors:


New Balance Pro Court 213

The mid-top version of the classic New Balance Pro Court, the 213 is one of my favorite casual shoes to wear. The timeless style and all-around comfort mean you can wear it all, while it doesn't have a rolled heel, its light-weight and well-supported heel make shifting comfortable, the classic looks and overall quality make the 213 my personal favorite.

Available in four colors:


Nike Cortez Basic Leather OG

The clean retro style is straight out of the 1980's and would be the perfect shoe for your road trip to Radwood. The wrap around sole will make makes rolling between the pedals easy and the iconic style makes a statement all it's own.

Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81

1949 Kihachiro Onitsuka created the first ASICS shoe in his living room in Kobe Japan, under the Onitsuka Tiger name. Sold the world over the Onitsuka Tiger was a popular athletic shoe in the 50s-70s in the USA. These updated classics feature an angled heel and narrow profile, making them great for driving and everyday wear.

A classic brand that has recently been revived, the K-Swiss Fusion has a wrap around sole which makes it a great driving shoe allowing the driver to roll between the pedals with minimal effort. The Retro Red, White, and Blue would be my pick.
