Sandals. Flip-flops. Slippers (slippas). Chonklas*. Huraches*. Jerusalem Cruisers.
We've all got a pair somewhere. Do you wear 'em while you pinball?
There's nothing to be ashamed about. The first time I read about Lyman Sheats, it was an article lovingly chiding him about playing in his stocking feet (and his fly Members Only jacket)**.
I feel that to do your best when pinballing, you need to be comfortable. So whether it's barefoot, or in sandals, or wearing Sketchers... do not lament your own personal style. Do you!

*I don't know how to spell either of these things.
**I was really disappointed to see a pic of him playing recently, and he was wearing sneakers. Man, I hope he wasn't shamed into wearing footwear!
