It’s my understanding that ‘capacitive-sensing’ implies touch.  Skin connects the circuit, so no shoes allowed.  It’s also my impression that the Line6 HX Stomp’s capacitive touch triggers the assigned function in the display, not the on-off switching itself.  I could be way off base here, as I’m barely familiar with the details.  But just for the sake of further discussion …

I think you are right. In fact, “skin connects the circuit, so no shoes allowed” is a remarkably concise explanation, though, slightly counter-intuitive given these are footswitches. 🙂 Don’t most people edit their H9’s with their toes?
