    So what do you work the pedals with?

    Black Converse All Stars, real damaged, real old, real dirty! The way they should be ;)

    And some blue diesel shoes which I cannot find a picture of, the closest is this:

    Mine is just all blue and white and the men-version :D

    Feel home in my converse though!

    not me, but I like it
  13. Generally I try to play barefoot... unless the stage is really icky... then I'll wear socks. This gives me more control over my pedal board and I can do things like adjust my Phase 90's rate knob.

    I've tried socks/barefeet, but it hurts when I hit the pedals.:smug:
  15. We do it barefoot, but when I can't go barefoot - a pair of Clark's Wallabees do the trick... comfy, but not soo big I can't control my pedals.

    That is me with the Gold PRS... old pic.
  16. Gotta wear shoes. For some reason, if I stand for too long without shoes on, my toes start to go numb.
  17. actually - my band gets a lot of funny looks on stage... we play barefoot about 90% of our gigs... we even travel with our own rugs. But, people in the crowd will often point at our bare feet & snicker... but, they know we are hardcore when we show up to the gig with flip-flops & it is 30` degrees outside! sometimes, i just can't deal with pedals & shoes at the same time.
