First answer: "Depending on where you live it might or might not be. But it's not recommended. If you drive barefoot, have a pair of shoes on hand in case you get stuck in the mud. The best thing to do is to speak to the relevant people/department in charge of Motor vehicles in your country/state."
And I beg to differ on the recommendation of the first answerer. A lot depends on what you're used to, some say a barefoot person can't push the pedals with enough force and that may be true if you never walk barefoot and have very tender, weak feet, but it's not a given.
Many people walk barefoot at least around their own home, and don't forget the growing community of barefoot runners out there! If your feet are not that tender, you can have *more* control of the vehicle when barefoot. I've seen quite a few posts from experts (police officers, insurance folks) who actually recommend bare feet over footwear like flipflops, wedges, heels etc.

"yes & its illegal to drive in flip-flops." Wrong. It is perfectly legal to drive barefoot or in flip-flops. I personally wouldn't recommend flip-flops because it can get caught in the pedals. If you do I recommend you take them off and drive barefoot and move them as far away from the pedals as possible References: http://www.barefooters.org/
