Recently I purchased a new shoe Ziera and love these shoes. They are comfortable and as dressy as I'll ever need them to be, at for work or going out with a little heel yet comfortable enough that I'm breaking in one pair for my next vacation. There is a little drawback to them, in that they are a little on the clicky side.

Will also take some daytime walking shoes too.

My choice of shoes are Ecco. I bought my first pair for a trip 8 years ago, and now they are all I wear. Yes they run from $100 (on sale) to $200, but they are so much more comfortable than the brands I use to wear (Nike, Converse and Dr Martins) and they seem to last longer than anything but perhaps my docs.

Good link!

I have a pair of Privo sandals that I've worn extensively for the last couple years and I love them.

jgwagner, I think I'm on my 2nd or 3rd pair of Eccos for work. They're great!

I travel with Vasque over the ankle hiking boots (my chiro convinced me I need the support), and Ecco sandals (after my Birks proved not to have enough grip). Plus either flip flops or black flats.

I would like boots with better grip in the wet, but my feet are very hard to fit, and the Vasque are about the only brand I can wear - just as a particular style of Saucony are the only sneakers I can wear.

Not a priority as such however flip flops are a must on behalf of me. They are resilient, take up negligible house in your pack and have heaps of of uses

I have a pair of Merrell's that I want bronzed after I retire them. Totally comfortable and waterproof to boot. I also pack Keen sandals that I wear like bedroom shoes in the hotel room. They make a great lightweight spare pair of shoes.
