Alternative Footwear ?

Looking at some of the costumes from TRIBE and Bliss, so far, I am getting the idea that boots may not be the best choice of footwear in terms of aesthetic. I mean I CAN see boots if you are playing in Mongol Fighters, however if you are in Masai Tribal Warriors or Titans how would boots look especially if you want to preserve the theme of the costume? 

This individual masquerader in Harts 2010 with the huge wings and Romanesque costume was on point with every aspect of the character from the body art to the footwear which is savvy pair of Gladiator Sandals! I love it to be honest, boots to me would not have had the same effect of completing this costume.



And I feel the same way about this masquerader in Brian Mc Farlane's Masai; her sandals are perfect for the costume which is beautifully accessorized, boots or sneakers would not have the same authenticity of presentation: 

Similarly two masqueraders in Island People's Kutchela also wore Gladiator Sandals decorated by Afro Chic for the sections Taal and Bindi :



So my question to you is would you be open to wearing sandals to play Mas for Carnival? Yay or Nay?What are your concerns about sandals for the road? If you have worn sandals  or open toed shoes what tips and advice can you give, what were the pros and cons? Have you ever worn the insoles for sandals and open toed shoes? Feed back on comfort would be much appreciated!
