Default New Poll: How Many Shoes?

OK - here is a question that might get things stirred up! How many pairs of shoes do you take on a 7 - 10 day cruise? Me, I got by on my last 7 day cruise with 4 pairs - black dress shoes, tennis shoes, white canvas slip ons and one pair of aqua shoes.

For my Summit cruise, I'm taking a pair of flats, dress shoes, sandals and gym shoes and of course, my water shoes. I used to travel with a dozen pairs of shoes but I've learned they take valuable space and are there really feet police??? Now I have to go for comfort and be more sensible! Sue

Four seems to be the lucky number, I also take 4/5. One to two pair dress shoes, sandals, sneakers, and my clogs and what ever shoes I wear to travel to and from the cruise.

Ok, now can't wait to hear how many Trip takes?

Okay Lisa, I always thought I did well in this category but when I used up both hands counting, I thought...maybe not! lol

For the upcoming 11 day Hawaii I'm going to try to keep it to:

Do you have to count the ones you wear there? I usually wear my walking tennies since they take up the most room. So there's one. And...

Canvas deck/tennis shoes

Casual Sandals (it is hard for me to keep this category to ONE pair so I know I will probably bring 2 pair in this category)

Black dress sandals/shoes

And I never ever go anywhere without my TEVAS!

So let's see...that's 6 pairs!

(Not counting my dive booties either)

Good thing Merman has big feet, I put some of my shoes inside of his when packing!

TEVA ???? I'm sure out of it-- dont even know what they are-- my feet hate shoes-- but I have to wear them--my feet cant go barefoot either----
Usually four-- tennis shoes or some type of walking shoe - black sort of dress up one and sandle style and water shoes
More than I care too but it part of the cruise
April-- going to check out TEVAS

Yikes.....it's usually 8-10....can't ever seem to get it below that....but that includes the ones I am wearing and aqua socks if a beach is involved.....never go in the water without them.

Limit myself to a total of 4: 1 dress (always pack in single color category)
2 sandals ( red and either bone or black)
1 gym/walking (wear as these are large & heavy)
Have done fine this way on 7-10 day cruises. Might add a second walk/gym if go 2 weeks on a port intensive cruise, but unlikly since we can't be on our feet that much so I'd probably only do 1/2 days in some ports.

ok girls....this is right up my alley,and it sort of came about in a roundabout way...On my 1st cruise i packed probably about 6-8 pair, [my 1st job ever was selling shoes, so i come by this honestly] and at this time I found out that flying made my feet swell.One of the pair I brought was a pair earmarked for the pool..A well worn pair of Sam & Libbies,in a fabulous poolside shade of fuschia,with little woven people on them...[how cute]..well as the cruise progressed with all that salty food, GUESS WHAT? The Libbies were the ONLY pair i good get my Michelin tire feet into! Imagine, dressed to the nines in black tie for the capatins night and me in my fuschia shoes!!!! It seems every woman had a remedy for me to try , but alas, nothing worked..And not much has ever helped me since;( Sitting bulkhead and using a Steiner product has helped a bit at times, SOOOOO, my shoe condo gets packed with about 15 shoes... hopefully i may fit into about 6-8?? and if i precrusie in Fort Lauderdale, the odds will be that i will have a couple more to add While all the above is absolutley positivley the gospel truth, i must admit> my name is LInda and i am a devout Shoe-aholic, and proud of it...Trip/Friday Chat Host

Being a shoe horse, and just owning probably 60+ pairs, I always end up taking around 8-10 pair - and wear all of them at least once. My problem is I buy shoes, then the outfit to go with them as opposed to doing it the other way like sane people do.
