Best Driving Shoes?

What are the best driving shoes? I have a 2011 BMW M3, so i want something comfortable when i am driving for long or short distances.

I was looking at Pumas. What's the average price for good ones? If anyone can post some links of some good driving shoes, i would appreciate it.

I like the Pumas, but they always fell apart after a short time.

Piloti's were great. Lasted a long time and were great driving shoes. Too bad they went out of business.

I personally like Parigi from Ferragamo.

But any brand driving shoes with driving sole will be good for comfortable driving.

To the Boot New York makes a great looking driving shoe. Extremely comfortable and great looking. Padded heel and reasonably priced (I believe 200-250).

Whatever I am wearing. Often in the winter, it is heavy boots. Drive the car and leave the accessories for the ladies.

Chuck Taylors' or Pilotis'. Now that I drive a DCT, whatever I leave the house with. I only care if I'm going on a long drive.

I've never wanted to feel like a princess. But if I ever do I can look this thread up and make note of $500 driving shoes.
