Yes the ladies ( men) are supposed to take off high heels, to avoid damaging the slide, and themselves. I know someone who during a visit that involved a simulated evacuation, who did not take off her shoes. She caught her heel, and broke bones in her leg.

These rules about shoes and luggage are there for a reason. Good idea to keep passport and wallet etc on your person though.
