German translation:Turnschuhe tragend or turnbeschuht
Explanation:
Plimsolls are a canvas shoe with rubber soles, in essence a Turnschuh. It does not appear to be a brand name.
Shod is "beschuht". Depending on the overall style and levity of your text, you might use a phrase like "weißbehoste, turnbeschuhte...".
If you want to get away from the term Turnschuh, you might also be able to use Segeltuchschuh.

During the 1800s flat shoes and Grecian-style sandals become popular and in approx. 1865, the "sneaker" or plimsoll, a canvas-topped, rubber-soled shoe, is invented for badminton and tennis. Ladies' heel heights vary but stay below two inches during the rest of the century.

mit Plimsoll Schuhen ausgerüstete


Explanation:
Plimsoll is normally the loading line on a ship. Since there is no connection, I assume that Plimsoll is a trade name or type. SO leave it untranslated.
Shod is usually used for horses and comes from shoein, i.e. a person wearing Plimsoll shoes.
