I go barefoot---if my feet are sticking too bad, I sometimes use a little baby powder--which is probably as slippery as socks (gotta make sure you don't use very much at all--just a tad to "dry" your feet). I usually don't have the problem too bad/often, though.
The mat does say in it's safety instructions to NOT use anything other than bare feet, though. Otherwise you could either damage/wear the mat faster (with shoes) or slip and fall (with socks).
The only "mat" that is safe to used shoes on, is the metal mats that can be found online. However, I'm not sure if there are metal mats compatible with HP2, since I've heard (from Junica and others here) that the 3rd party mats don't work with it.
