My generic pair of barefoot sandals are the ones I made myself.
It's basically crochet strings, ornamented with beads and a little metal doo-dad that gives the appearance of sandals.
So, no, they don't get in the way of anything, as they lace up, slave-sandal style. Now the more ornamental stuff requires a bit of care, but for the most part they are no more bothersome than an anklet.
If you like really fancies, try checking under the jewelry targeted for belly dancers.
Lotsa bells and jinglies, and much fun too, especially on those occasions when one's feet are in the air...er, keeping time.
