BUMP!I have the Piloti Prototipo, Puma Replicat III and Puma Racer Leather GT (Ferrari) shoe. The first time I drove an Elise I was wearing the Prototipo's, and felt that they were too wide for the very narrow distance between the pedals (I'm a size 12) for the perfect spacing for Heel and Toe technique. I haven't tried driving a Lotus with either of the Puma's, but I think the Replicat would probably be too narrow, but the Racer Leather GT would probably be perfect. For day to day driving without the fancy footwork, all three are great though. For my JCW Mini DD, the Piloti's work best for H&T technique, as well as best pedal feel.
These are the shoes I like to wear while driving the Lotus. The Replicat's I mentioned above are also good, but slightly too narrow for good H&T (rolling the foot to the gas) techniques. The Racer GT's are my choice, though Puma doesn't carry them anymore, but they replaced it with the "Racer Carbon" Sneaker.
This is the Racer Carbon Sneaker they currently sell that is the equivalent to my favorite Racer GT's:
I did more recently buy the new Puma Drift Cat IV and Speed Cats, but they are still in the box to replace the Racer GT's and Replicat III when they are done. I think the Drift Cat IV will be the better shoe to drive the Lotus, but will have to wait and see...
Drift Cat IV - Mine isn't the Ferrari version this time:
