I'm curious what sort of shoes (and how many pairs) the female forum folk tend to take on vacation travel. There was some talk a while back about minimalist/barefoot shoes and I'd like to hear how different brands have worked for all-day walking.
My last multi-week trip to Australia I wore a pair of Keen low light hiking shoes and packed a pair of Dansko mary janes to give my feet a change and for dressing up. I'm planning another Australia trip and am trying to decide which shoes to bring. Over the past time I've been doing most of my distance walking in a pair of minimalist Merrell Pace Gloves. I'm currently planning on bringing a pair of minimalist shoes with me on the trip because they keep my feet stretched out and they take up almost no room and add very little to a bag. The mary jane's are no longer an option. I had to get some elastic replaced on them and afterward they felt too tight so I'm going to send them to a friend who has slightly smaller feet than I do.
