I dont know... they seem waaaay to uncumfortable for me... I'd rather wear sneakers... looks like you could get some nasty blisters from those!!

Those Crocs do indeed look, er, blister prone. And... not that cute, eh?

I tramped through Southeast Asia (dirty markets, showers, beaches and all) in a pair of leather Aerosole flip-flops and some Converse. I think I'll try some Birkenstocks next time, though. I've also read Ecco shoes are good, and I'll second the good word on the Tevas.

What do you ladies bring as a "dressy" shoe? I can always bring my favorite low heels, but I hate to bring anything I might not actually use that much. I'd rather make something do double-duty. A pair of comfortable flats, maybe?

Does anyone else have Krizia walking shoes? I love mine and use them a lot (they're so comfortable you don't need socks, even in heat and cold), but they seem more like urban walking shoes and, er, I'm going to spend a month bumming about Greece. Thoughts?

I brought a pair of Merrell hikers and a pair of Teva sandals. I'm especially happy about the Tevas and I swear by them (beach, showere, around town, etc.). The pair of dress shoes that I brough with me (black leather on a low heel) was the first thing that I send back home. I found that the amount of hiking, sight seeing and running around on the beach far outweighed everything else, so the dress shoes were not needed. I still went to restaurants, bars and clubs, but since it was hot and there were tons of people wearing sports sandals or sneakers all around I never felt underdressed.

My advice - bring whatever YOU are most comfortable in and don't bring too much (after all YOU will have to haul it around on your back till you come home).

How about Havaianas? A couple of friends went on a Europe trip this recent summer and used them.

I just bought a pair of Tevas with an xmas giftcard. My feet are so, so happy to have them. I did't think they'd be that comfortable but I put them on and said "Wow they feel really good" to the sales guy. I think he thought I was crazy but whatever! I got the Shay line if anyone cares!

I wore my Keens around India and England for three weeks and they never let me down. The only time I changed out of them was in the Himalayas at night when my feet would get cold and on the one day it rained in London. Those shoes single-handedly convinced me to buy a pair of Keen walking shoes for work... and let me tell you, it's difficult to persuade me to wear anything other than the Danskos for 14-hour shifts.

I have to add I agree with the Reefs recommendation. I wore them all over Australia, and they were awesome. More comfortable than my chacos or running shoes. I have the rubber ones though, not leather.
