It's good to practice in shoes, especially tennis shoes, since they will grip and make you trip if you tend to drag your feet. It makes you pick them up. I started in Karate when I was 8, didn't stick with it, but always kept the frame of mind that I may need to move at anytime. So I tend to dress in relaxed clothing. I used BDU pants when I first started in Aikido, before I got a gi. They're tough enough (re-inforced knees) to survive knee walking, and light and loose enough to move in.
