Hi

We (sis and me) are going to Bangkok, then travelling round Australia and New Zealand from November and are having the same dilema so any advice would be good.

Was a bit concerned about having to wear closed toes shoes in sydney cos even our 'dancing shoes' have open toes - are these allowed?

Other than that we plan on taking trainers (for comfort and for when we hit the gyms) and flip flops. Do we 'really' need hiking boots -(big, bulky and hot is not appealing!!!!).

Help?

Are you going hiking? If not, I'd say trainers will probably do for you.

I have a similar dilemma. I travel for a handful of weeks every year, so I don't need a pure "hiking" shoe - but rather one that I can wear comfortably at home and away. I searched briefly around for something that looks nice and fits well - say, a more fancy-pants pair of Doc Martins. I found Mephistos butt ugly, but Diesels too impractical. Does anyone have a brand they swear by that won't make me look like Granny Tway goes out on the town?

Anyone have any advice on a good pair of all around best travelling shoes for men?

I think you answered your own question. To me, nothing beats a pair of waterproof dayhikers to be an all purpose travelling shoe. Throw a pair of sandals in the bag was well, and you have all the footwear you are going to need unless you are planning on doing something outrageous.

I used to have a pair of Solomons, which I loved but eventually wore through the sole on. I just got a pair of Vasques. Very nice.

If you want something more dressy, I ended up buying a pair of CAT black dress shoes for work. They are good for airports (slip on and off so you aren't spending time at the security desk tieing and untieing your shoes) are comfortable to walk for medium distances, are decently heavy duty and look good enough for the office.

I travel in a pair of 8 hole Doc Martins, have had to retire the purple pair & bring on the green ones for this next trip and I just purchased a pair of Ecco Sandles which are pretty good!

Yups I work in all of sydneys top bars and clubs and yes for women open toed dancing shoes are fine. Just guys couldnt get away with going into a nightclub with open toed shoes on.

I remember seeing some shoes in a magazine that turned into sandals (can't remember how it worked) and now just as i think "i need some shoes to go travelling in" I can't find the article has anyone heard of these?
