Packing footwear when traveling
I just took a quick weekend driving trip with my Aeronaut and I faced a problem that always plagues me - packing sneakers. I like to wear shoes when I travel and pack sneakers because I jog for exercise and will often travel to places where I run a race.
But now that I'm trying to pack lighter it's driving me crazy how much room those sneakers take up!!! I keep trying to cut back on other things to make the sneakers fit but I feel like I'm packing light already (for me at least). I usually wrap the sneakers in a plastic bag (because they are dirty) and then put them in a bag but I found even with my small size 10s that they didn't fit so well in the side of the Aeronaut and had to be in the main compartment. So instead of one big cube and two half cubes I end up with one big and one half and the sneakers.
Anyway, it frustrated me and I wanted to check in with others who travel light to see what they pack for footwear and if I'm missing out on something. Even if you don't jog or exercise it seems like everyone needs to pack another pair of shoes so it can't be uncommon.
