One pair of boots "Brasher Trailmasters" Amazing boots, lightweight, durable and look the part too.

Possibly my durable sandals but rarely as if it's a hot place you can usually buy a cheap pair of flip flops.

Flip-flops are the way to go in Asia, very handy when youre constantly taking your shoes off to enter houses, temples etc.

Plus a pair of decent all-terrain sandals for longer walks and youre away!

What about some handy hints for avoiding smelly feet when travelling in the tropics. Even open high tech sandals seem to reek after a few weeks?

Oh i would definately recommend taking a pummice stone or something to scrape all the smummy skin off your feet.

Not only does it get your dirty feet clean again, but it helps to stop them stinking so bad too.

Generally I bring my pair of Goretex day hikers (good for walking) and a pair of sandals (good for hanging on the beach). If I am doing some serious hiking, I will either drop the day hikers for my hiking boots, or bring all 3 pieces of footwear. If I am going on a business trip, I have a pair of CAT footwear - slip on black shoes that look decent in the office but are still good to walk in.

I'm sorry to sound like a total girl here but do none of the other ladies ever think about when they go out drinking or maybe to a nice restaurant and don't want to be wearing flipflops or worn out trainers?
I do like to look nice and don't always put comfort before vanity... obviously i know this thinking will be replaced when i embark on my travelling adventure, but i would still like to be able to dress up if the occasion presents itself.

any ideas ladies (or gentlemen)... or do you just suggest i purchase a pair of smart high-heeled sandals, if and when the said occasion arises?

I always travel with a pair of high-heeled black sandals for going out at night. There's not always time or opportunity on the road to go shop for shoes. Besides, I'm very fussy with shopping and take days to find just the right pair of shoes. I try to travel as light as possible, but I always bring at least 1 pair of going-out shoes and 2 sets going-out tops.

I'm with you! I always have a pair of stylin shoes in case I want to go somewhere nice. For some reason, sneakers just don't look that great with a nice skirt in a fancy restaurant or club.

Other than that...I take sneakers with me all of the time for walking around wherever I am. If it's hot and there are beaches, I will bring a pair of comfortable sandals, like Teevas, and I've also been known to bring a pair of flip flops (they don't take up much room so they're great! and can double as shower shoes).

Cheers,
(another) Katie ;)
