Do your heels get scuffed while driving?

I pretty much live in 4 inch stilettos which means I drive in them too of course. My problem is the heel and the back of the heel cup get sooo scuffed up after just a few trips.

Is anyone else having this problem when driving in heels? Do you know how to stop it from happening?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I once had my heel stuck in between the pedal, and I nearly freaked because it meant I couldn't take my foot off the accelerator easily to brake.

After that, I learnt to take off my heels while driving. It's a hassle, but at least I don't worry about my shoes or getting stuck.

Yea, I generally wear something else when I'm driving and then switch them before I get out of the car. I'm dying for a pair of Car Shoes.

I usually bring a pair of havaianas when I'm driving because I have scuffed my heels in the past. Since havaianas come in so many colors, you can find a pair to match any outfit just in case you have to change out of your sexy stilettos cause they are killing your feet. Believe me, I speak from experience!

I purchased some little Persian rugs and put them in the car floors over the plastic mats that came with the car purchase.

I love them. Very classy. No worn heels.

I wash the little rugs in the washing machine. I air dry flat. They are thick so they tend to buckle. I weight them down with some 3"x3" granite sample squares.

I always take my shoes off when I drive, esp since I have a manual.

I used to ruin my suede pumps all the time, especially when I had a stick shift. I always kept an old pair of flats in the car for driving.
