Track Day Boots

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend anywhere to buy some decent track day boots?

I've just karting boots in the past, but they do not tend to last very long.

Thanks,

Hmmm - not sure this is the reply you want. I have a nice pair of DeWalt steel toe capped boots I use - no I am not joking - my car has been built with loads of room and I can drive it wearing anything. I do use trainers occasionally though, HiTec something or others.
Don't suppose I have helped much - oh dear ;-)

If you don't want to get ripped off paying for Sparco etc labels get yourself to Sports Direct and buy some of the Lonsdale boxing style trainers/boots

Basically the same shape as 'proper' car footwear but at a reasonable price

Like those above I find ideal, nice and narrow for tight pedal areas and a nice heel grip
