    I wear sneakers until our first connection and then change into sandals for the second leg and that's it. Then do the reverse on the return flights. The sneakers get double duty at the gym, otherwise they stay in the closet at home.

    We are wearing tennis shoes (sneakers) to travel. Bringing water shoes, flip flops and I'll pack a pair of slide sandals.

    I travel in my sketchers sneaker and bring 2 pr of sandals, 1 that doubles as water shoes if needed. Mimi on the other hand has 6-10 pr of sandals/sneakers. She also comments that if the need arises, there are numerous stores that will have shoes to fit the occasion. Been traveling 1st class for several years now thus luggage space is not an issue.

    I wear socks & sneakers to travel, I like to get comfy & take the sneaks off during the flight & have to take them off at security, but freak at the idea of going barefoot in either place! I bring junk flip flops for the beach/pool and another pair for everything else. DH has sneakers, sandals for walking, sandals for dining, flip flops for beach, DD brings 7 or 8 pairs of flips/sandals plus sneakers for the gym/walking. DSs get a pair of sneaks & a pair of flips each - That's about 20 pairs of shoes! And this is why I continue contemplating renting storage in Aruba!

    I'm with Jacki on the barefoot thing at the airport. We both wear sneakers with socks on the travel days. I like to have them on days that I know we are walking a lot. One thing I wont do again, is wear a new pair. On our 11 day trip, I had a new pair of sketchees walking shoes that rubbed the worst blister...couldn't wear them again aftwr day 2..big mistake! Other than that I bring 2 pair of flip flops that are black and a neutral color or brown, whichever matches the most. I'm going more for comfort than style, I'm on vacation! Dh brings 2 pair of flip flops, in the carryon and usually on his feet before we leave the airport.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Fins! Didn't think of those. We also bring 5 pairs of snorkel gear - they take up almost a whole suitcase!

    Flip-flops, flip-flops and more flip-flops. My daughter and I are flip-flop queens; luckily we wear the same size too! I live in flip-flops year round and have furry ones for winter. I can't wear them to work (although I do have some nice ones that are nicer than what some other people wear on their feet).

    Yes, I wear flip-flops on travel day. Hubby and I simply throw on those little "no-show" socks with our flip-flops while in the security line and then throw them in our carry-on in a baggie once we get to the gate, or just use a real old pair ready for the trash and just throw them away.

    I have beach flip-flops that are the most comfortable things in the world. They were a fundraiser for my daughter's volleyball team a few years back. The school mascot is a tiger and the flip-flops have a tiger paw cut out on sole. When you walk, you leave tiger prints in the sand. The kids found me one time by following the prints in the sand.

    For dinner I have flip-flops with bling. It's amazing what a little bit of rhinestone can do. For shopping or just wandering about I have Sanuk flip-flops (made out of yoga mats; awesome).

    I do take a pair of Sketcher athletic shoes just in case, but I haven't worn them the past couple visits.
