    To be fair they usually come up in trim topics but still.

    My serious reply is just to go a LITTLE vertical and extend your legs for a second. Easy.

    Do some people think it's like using equipment to compensate for poor driving skills?

    Or people commenting from places that don't need nor use winter tyres...

    If you want to make a change, going to neoprene socks will probably help.

    Most inbuilt boots have a lot of air space and the people who I know who insist they need ankle weights all have booted suits.

    Personally, I've never understood the need to weight your ankles as I've never experienced floaty feet - Both my suits (old and new) have socks.

    If, though, as others say, it's a minor issue, just do a bit of 'verticalisation' when you start to float...

    I've just fitted some track day slicks to my car to see me through the winter months ;)
