The suit is an above the knee number bare lower legs and the trainers and socks just get wet. As long as they are fairly light weight, fell type shoes the water isn't really an issue on the run stages.
I didn't think the trainers were much of an issue in the water either until I was racing against swimmers without them on!
Off to Derwent Water now for a 2.4mile swim event - no trainers in this one so should be a bit more pacey.
