Flying barefoot, comfort and safety

At some time in the past, the FAA had a rule against flying barefoot. All people 5 years and over had to wear shoes while flying. Their rule seems to be gone (a search of their site on 'barefoot' now only turns up an employee living in Barefoot Bay, FL). However, a lot of individual airline companies still have company policies requiring shoes. Other airlines do not. Here are some of my own visions on bare feet, flying, comfort and safety, both in regular situations and in case of an emergency.
