It largely depends on your metabolism and your fat insulation.
About 9°C is the bare minimum I can go without getting feet too numb by cold water. What's very important is to get heat from whole body and head by using a dry suit with hood: as long as I'm getting hot, no problems going barefoot in cold water.
BTW in Silvaplana during summertime, I'm always barefoot with either a shorty or a short arm steamer. I just hate booties.

Expensive so I hope they'll be worth it, I'll let you know.

Once I forgot to take shoes to Silvaplana (1800 meter above the see level) and the water was extremely cold (I guess 11-12 deg. C). It was only possible to sail in 30 minutes intervals and than I had to go out and warm up my feet.
But comfortable is it definetely not and I would not recommend it!

|benti||I like to sail barefoot,but when the temperatur falls below 12-14 celsius i feel there is no gain.The feeling of greater sensibilty dissapears when the feet just feels like a big lump..|

|wiindz||id say it starts around 15-20 depending on who you are and if you have a good suit, why not just wear shoes though?? they protect your feet from rocks and can be bough it very resonable prices|
