if you mean like racing boots, look at places like demon tweeks, rally design, merlin motorsport, those sorts of places.
think demon tweeks has the biggest range though

I asked a similar question a while ago...

Shoes thread

...but that was for ordinary high-street shoes, not proper racing boots.

Yesterday, I bought a pair of sparco top 3 race boots in black 'classic style' from silverstone autosport for 99 quid! he had a few pairs left but is selling them a bit cheaper as they have released the top 5 now! But he reckons they are very similar same soles just a change of design and strap.

That was the name I couldn't think of before! Someone posted a Lonsdale trainer that could be bought on the high street - it wasn't a slip-on - it was either lace up, or more likely a velcro fastener.

I'll have to do another search now...

have a look here
http://www.sportsdirect.com/lonsdale?dsearch=cat

sports direct are pretty cheap, but the stores are usually a complete riot, but if you can handle that, then all good. had pairs of trainers for 15 out of there before
