Shuffling is mostly for the feet and the arms just compliment whatever foot motions are taking place. This dance style is very high paced, intense cardio, and is usually to done to music with a constant beat such as electro, hardstyle, and/or techno.
Shuffling is preferrable in shoes as it won't hurt your feet, but also acceptable in socks or barefoot. Outfit and clothing style are irrelavant. Many shufflers (anyone who is decent or better at shuffle dancing) gain popularity by dancing in public, at meetups, but mostly by posting videos of them shuffling online.
After watching other amazing shufflers, you will most likely want to learn how to or at least want to obsessivly watch others shuffle because it looks cool.

It basically makes the person look like a complete idiot, try-hard and wannabe. It is for people who know they can't dance properly, or who are just too ashamed of themselves to dance like a normal person.
Shuffling is NOT dancing. It is what you do when you want to look like an idiot and an amateur.
"Oh my god! He's having an epileptic fit!"
"No, he's just shuffling"
Normal person: "What the fuck are you doing?!"
Idiot: "Shuffling! It's this new dance craze. See how cool I look!"
Normal person: "No, you look like a complete ass!"
