I only ask because once a head ref made a friendly comment about me wearing flip flops and my response was to point to the other teams bench coach who was wearing 6inch heels and explain that I could definitely jump out of the way of wheels more quickly than her...(and of course that I accepted any accidental injury as my own fault)
Basically, it's at the discretion of the head ref whether or not they feel it is a safety issue. Some would feel it is, others wouldn't mind and would put any injuries on the shoulders of the barefoot person.

I don't think I would ever go totally barefoot, I did wear flip flops at scrims once and I spent half my time jumping out of the way of wheels!!

Please let me know if anything is unclear/you need more examples :)

And we can practice Official Reviews at practice in the run up to home season maybe? Might be worth getting us all comfortable with doing them :D
