I have size ten feet but have found Slazenger plimsoll’s rather good.

It’s only metal, it cannot win!

How stiff are the soles in the Puma, Lonsdale and Adidas trainers?

I found the Slazenger plimsoll was a bit soft while stuck in traffic having to use the clutch a lot.

Plimsolls will be soft. As the rubber sole is flat and you're basically relying upon the insole for stiffness. I know, as a pair of Dunlop Greenflash were my footwear whilst Interrailing around Europe in 1983.

Would a dedicated motorsport shoe e.g sparco or alpinestar have a stiffer sole? Or is a softer sole better for pedal “feel”?

@Gjk Puma........but Porsche Design. From the outlet store in Germany, reduced from 135Euro to 66Euro. Porsche trainers/pumps/sneakers seem to fit me well, I now have three different pairs, all heavily reduced of course. Speedcat Lux Sneaker is the 'JPS' one.

JPS socks are Heel Tread. They do an amazing range of F1/car socks. Not cheap at near £10 a pair but they are fab and seem to last well.

Hopefully see you in the Surrey hills one day.
