THIS LIST IS COMPILED BY A GLOBETROTTING SHOEAHOLIC.  IT TOOK AN INTERVENTION BY FRIENDS TO TAKE MY SHOE COUNT FROM 175 TO 75, OR SO.  WITH THAT IN MIND, AFTER NEARLY LOSING A FOOT TO INFECTED BLISTERS WHILE TRAVELING IN GUATEMALA, I AM PROVIDING THE MOST SENSIBLE ADVICE POSSIBLE.

These shoes have been around the world.

1. DO – WHEN YOU PACK FOR A TRIP THE FIRST THING IN THE BAG SHOULD

COMFORT SHOES

BE YOUR MOST COMFORTABLE WALKING SHOES.  NEW SHOES WILL CAUSE NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS AND A BLISTER OR TWO, OR THREE.  THROW SOME EXTRA SOCKS AND SHOELACES IN JUST IN CASE.

2.  DO – IF YOU NEED TO SHOP FOR A SHOE DO IT AS FAR IN ADVANCE AS POSSIBLE TO BREAK THEM IN AT HOME.  IF TAKING A WORN IN PAIR MAKE SURE THEY STILL FIT AND ARE COMFORTABLE.

well worn shoes

3.  DON’T – DO NOT  BRING TOO MANY SHOES YOU WILL RARELY NEED THEM ALL.

This might be on the list of too many shoes.

LIMITING YOUR SHOES WILL SAVE MONEY ON BAGGAGE FEES AND ROOM IN THE SUITCASE FOR THE SHOES YOU COULD BUY ON THE TRIP.   DEPENDING ON WEATHER, AND IF IT IS BUSINESS OR PLEASURE,  THE LIST MIGHT BE AS FOLLOWS:

BOOTS OR SANDALS

LOW PUMPS OR STYLISH FLATS

WALKING SHOES OR TENNIS SHOES

TUXEDO STYLE SHOE OR BALLET SLIPPER  (EITHER ARE GREAT FOR A DINNER OUT)

WINTER – STREET SHOE SUMMER – CANVAS SHOE

SUMMER – CANVAS SHOE

THONGS FOR SHOWER IN THE HOTEL, POOL OR BEACH

IF THERE WILL BE ANY CLUBBING IT IS A GOOD REASON TO SLIP IN A SPARKLED HIGH HEEL, WITH OR WITHOUT TOE AND POSSIBLE AN ANKLE STRAP. PATIENT LEATHER IS ALWAYS A GOOD CHOICE INSTEAD OF SPARKLES, OR METALLICS.  PATENT LEATHER IS EASY TO CLEAN AND IS WATER RESISTANT.

YOU HAVE 5 PAIRS WITHOUT THE NITE LIFE SHOES.  DON’T COUNT THONGS THEY ARE A NO BRAINER, A MUST HAVE AND TAKE UP LITTLE ROOM.

good for beach or shower

WEAR SUPPORT SOCKS OR HOSE ON PLANES AND MAKE SURE YOUR AIRPLANE SHOES (A WHOLE NEW TIP CATEGORY) STRETCH TO ALLOW FOR SWOLLEN FEET.  THE SUPPORT HOSE AND/OR SOCKS WILL HELP WITH THE SWELLING.

One size fits anyone.

A GOOD IMPRESSION ON CHECK IN CAN GET YOU BUMPED UP A CLASS.  I USUALLY WEAR THE MOST COMFORTABLE YET STYLISH FLAT OF THE SEASON.  BREAK THEM IN BEFORE YOU LEAVE IF THEY ARE NEW.  GET TO THE BOARDING GATE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE AND BE VERY FRIENDLY TO THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT.

Perhaps not.
Maybe these, stylish yet comfy.

ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO CARRY SOME BANDAIDS AND NEOSPORIN JUST IN CASE.  YOU MAY WANT TO SWITCH SHOES MID-DAY SO A TOTE BAG WOULD BE HANDY TO HAVE.


THIS LIST IS GOOD FOR MEN TOO WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE PUMPS, BALLET SLIPPERS AND THE HIGH HEELED DANCING SHOES, OR NOT.

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!

  15. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out
    there that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations?
    Kudos!

    1. Yes use WordPress. It does take a lot of work. From the writing stand point it is a good idea to take a few courses. There are many advertised on the web but you may find some at your local JC and if it fits your budget UCLA has a great writers program on line. Watch what you sign up for from the internet ads, make sure you are getting what they want you to pay for. I encourage the use of accredited schools.

  16. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with
    the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure
    out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Thanks for the input. I will look into it and see if there is something I can do. I have not heard that before so it may not be across the board. I know that I am not happy with the gray quality of some of the media, they are not as bright as what I had shot. I am looking for a answer to that as well.

  17. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written article.
    I will be sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your useful info.
    Thanks for the post. I’ll certainly comeback.

    1. The feebdack is important. I would like to be able to provide more of what the audience wants. Write in if there is something you would like to see.
      Thank you,
      Rose

  18. After looking at a handful of the articles on your
    blog, I truly like your technique of blogging.

    I bookmarked it to my bookmark webpage list and will be checking back in the near future.
    Take a look at my web site as well and tell me how you
    feel.

  19. Howdy, I do believe your site could be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it
    has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, great blog!

    1. Thank you for the commments. If you have any tips on overcoming my compatibility issues please share them.
      Glad you liked it otherwise.

  20. Heya excellent website! Does running a blog like this take a great deal
    of work? I have absolutely no knowledge of computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the
    near future. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or
    techniques for new blog owners please share.

    I know this is off subject nevertheless I just had to ask.
    Thanks a lot!

    1. I answered this question a few minutes ago. You aren’t the only one interested. Yes, it does take a lot of work. I recommend taking a class or two or three. If you don’t have any writing experience start there then look into how to make a blog.
      There is plenty of information on the internet just research it. Use an established firm for publishing your blog. WordPress offers a free one. Choose a theme and it talks you through the set up. Your local JC should offer some related courses. If it is affordable check out the writing program at UCLA on line.

  21. I blog often and I truly thank you for your content. The article has truly peaked my interest.
    I am going to book mark your blog and keep checking for new
    details about once a week. I subscribed to your RSS feed as well.

  22. Howdy I am so happy I found your blog, I really
    found you by error, while I was browsing on Yahoo
    for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say kudos for a
    incredible post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also
    love the theme/design), I don’t have time to look over it all at
    the moment but I have saved it and also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back
    to read a great deal more, Please do keep up the fantastic work.

  23. First off I want to say wonderful blog! I have a quick question І’d lіke to ask іf уou do not mind.
