Years ago I knew a guy who drove an old "Bulldog" Mack. It was just the cab that was original and underneath it was all up to date (for that time). He kept the cab immaculate. He kept a pair of slippers behind the seat and after cleaning his shoes on a piece of carpet he used, He would put his shoes behind the seat and drive with the slippers on. I don't see anything "dangerous" about it if you want to put up with the extra hassle!

I think it up to what you like in foot ware. but on the old Mack I drove one years ago not fast on the straight . but when it came to climbing it would walk away for the rest of them with a bigger load. and it was a pure breed so I don't know what was under the hood. there good trucks,

Thanks for all the advice!! I've got decent footwear for when I jump out of the truck, so I'm just more wondering about footwear that'll keep my feet warm during the cold winters and are comfortable to wear driving. I like the thought of slippers for driving in and plan on buying some for in the truck so I'm just wondering what all my fellow lady drivers are wearing if they drive in slippers.

I'm a little confused. Slippers are unsafe for driving, so doubtful that you will be advised on brands to wear for that purpose. Your truck's heater should help your feet and legs stay plenty warm. Be safe. Drive only in approved footwear. You have double-clutching and all that shifting to do. Common sense, you know?
