The simplest solutions are usually among the best. Simpson’s SFI-approved hightop racing shoes are among the earliest examples of racing shoes on the market, and they’re still a viable option among options costing hundreds more. The inner fleece lining is fire retardant. There is a triple layer anterior toe area for added wear protection with additional reinforcements in the heel and lace guard with double speed-fit closer. The outer sole is a non-slip, super-sensitive polyurethane sole with posi-grip traction. All that for about $100.
