I agree with Sean that going barefoot can be better than wearing shoes (and especially better than wearing velcro strapped sandals).

But on my last flats trip I wore thin neoprene socks while on the deck of the boat (very thin, light grey Simms wading socks). I found this to be the ultimate solution. Good grip on the deck and almost zero chance of wrapping line on a toe if you are stumbling around on the deck in decent swells.
