The idea of riding fixed in sandals terrifies me. Also, I'm not sure how clips and straps could be the least bit comfortable without enclosed shoes.
Don't forget that the front chainring is always turning, just waiting to chop off a big toe or give you a cloven right foot. That is one of the less obvious reasons why clips of some kind are a necessity for good and safe fixed gear riding.
