I am about to go for 3-4 weeks OTR with a trainer. In my previous long driving (mostly along east coast between NH and TX) in personal vehicles and all sort of moving trucks I found driving barefoot to be most comfortable regardless of the season. Commercial driving is of course a whole other thing. So my question is - what is good to have on your feet while driving for 10-11 hours?

Honestly, I just drive in my socks. Keep a pair of boots or other footwear right next to the door.

Harvest, if you change your shoes & socks as much as your Avi's.. you are GOOOD~!!

LoL.. just playin, man. Bet i've got a kiddo your age, haha!

Carolinas are LIGHTER than Red Wings... and warmer.. living in Ohio, we ALL got a pair! Me, the lady person.. got some BearPaws .. not trucking ready, however~~!!!

Comfort and conducive >>> Carolina's. I've got no stake; just the BEST xmas gift I've given!

Wait til I figure out how to post pix..off my phone. Hubby brought me home those 'ICE SLIPPERS' to put on MY boots. OMIgosh.. LoL..

PackRat is on it!

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Driving in socks? What happens when you are involved in the biggest crash ever, the truck is upside down and on fire, and you have to Get Out NOW in Nowhere, ND, and the temperature is -26? Cold, frostbitten feet can kill you. Seriously.

I still wear my old combat boots with Army issue wool green socks. Very comfortable.

Man, that's diehard. I'd at least wear cotton socks. I remember getting issued those OD socks in Basic. I was like, "You want me to wear these in New Jersey in JULY???!!"

These keen Atlanta cool safety shoes are comfortable enough for me to drive in and also great for unloading a trailer, being on my feet for hours

I don't have to worry about that, my trusty dog would lay on my feet to keep them warm. More likely I wouldn't be in an accident that rolls me over. Kinda far reaching example anyways, like saying "Driving in socks? What happens when a huge, ugly lot lizard won't take no for an answer and you have to kick yourself away from her and run away...in socks."

Driving in socks is perfectly safe, I'm safer in my socks than y'all are with your boots.
