Taken directly word for word from the Sakura-Con website:
•Formal, nice leather-based shoes required (i.e. Vans, Doc Martens styled shoes)
•NOTE: If your character canonically wears non-formal shoes with a formal outfit and you can provide official visual evidence at point of entry, you are allowed in.
So basically if your character usually wears a tux with black chuck taylors and you can provide a picture of your character in said attire as proof, than they'll let you into the ball. Hope this helps!!
