Laces work - just don't tie 'em too tight.

Zippers can be trickier. Metal zippers will get tricky to manage in no goddamned time at all, the alkali in the playa dust is on the corrosive side. To keep zippers working smoothly on the playa, the pro tip is to hit them with chapstick. Inside and out. The waxy stuff will keep the zipper running smoothly for you.

You can also look at slip-on footwear. I've got a couple pair of Doc Marten's that slip on-off, they're my favorite playa footwear ever. Which reminds me, I need to sort out some fresh gel insole things...
