Odd question:
When flight simming with rudder pedals, what do you wear on your feet?
I always wear socks, but I'm curious if people sim with bare feet, whatever shoes you have on at the time, or whatever.

I don’t have rudder pedals, but for racing games I like driving shoes/moccasins for my pedals. Particularly some Minnetonka Moccasins I’ve got.

Barefoot so I can use my big toe for the toe brakes. winkngrin


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I go with whatever shoes I have on, usually running shoes of some sort, but I've worn slippers and gone barefoot too.

Uggs that I use for slippers around the house or socks... depends on how cold I keep the room and what I was doing before I sat down to sim.

Bare feet.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

I guess Crocs are moderately appropriate, as long as you are flying a Ka-52 alligator or mi-24 Krokodil wink

What about driving my Tiger I ? This is what I wear. Is that more appropriate?
Maybe I should purchase this to fly my Ka-52 or Mi-24???
