Not sure I’ve ever had this problem, but I almost always take my dress shoes off when I drive

Hum … I’ve never had an issue with my shoes from driving.

I’ve never worried about them scuffing (though I’m pretty hard on shoes, which is why I try to buy inexpensive pairs), but, if I’m wearing stilletos, I usually drive without shoes on. Although I don’t know that this is legal in all states.

ETA: Nevermind! Apparently the “illegal barefoot driving” thing is a myth! Guess I’m safe ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe my shoes aren’t cute enough, or I just don’t notice.  ๐Ÿ™‚  My car has an organ-style pedal, though, so I keep my foot up more on the pedal so I’m not digging in with my heel.  Maybe pay attention to where your foot is?  None of my floormats will scuff my shoes, so I wonder where it comes from?  I keep my heel usually halfway between the pedals in any other car (and my left on the deadpedal – I usually drive a manual).

@Brielle:  I’m interested to see the responses. I just looked at a pair of my expensive wedges and the right shoe is showing wear on the heel. I’m a little bummed, I’m going to take it to the shoe doctor to see if anything can be done.

It’s so true!  I don’t know the answer though.

I never wear heels so i can’t say I’ve dealt with this, but maybe just keep a pair of flats in the car to drive in?

When I wear nice shoes I bring flip flops or tennis shoes to drive in so I don’t mess up the nice shoes

This happens to me all the time! I usually just take that shoe off and drive with one bare foot. My Fiance calls it my “redneck driving,” haha. Nice to know I’m not the only one with this problem!

Yea, I think the best option might be to have a cute pair of flats in the car and switch out of them. And if you happen to forget you have them on again, at least they are super cute!

I try to take my heels off when I drive now… My foot got caught on this little piece, it was  so bad I was stuck! good thing i was in a parking lot.
