Mine are a three year old pair of Converse High Tops that I painted to look like EVH's Frankenstrat guitar. They are little more than canvas attached to a rubber sole so they are thin and fit nicely in the T/A's foot well, they translate pedal feel better than anything else I own, and they are so old the soles have conformed to my foot. This picture was taken in 2010 when I painted them. They are nowhere near as clean or in as good of shape now, there are even burn marks from when I was learning to weld.
I like to drive barefoot, but often I need to get out of the car, so shoes are normally a must.
