Default Men: How many pairs of shoes do you pack?

Buddy's question got me thinking. If you are a guy and took the "correct" shoes for your wardrobe you would end up with quite a few.

Patent leather for your tuxedo.

Dress shoes for your informal wear.

Casual loafers for your casual clothes. This could be two pair depending on black and brown.

Tennis shoes.

Sandals

Flip flops for the pool.

This equals at least five or six pair of shoes.
************************************************** **********************************************
I have one pair of dress shoes for formal and informal. (Sorry fashion police; they are not patent leather, they are good black dress shoes that are well polished)

One dark pair of loafers: Yes on occasion my belt doesn't match my shoes and perhaps my shoes won't match my pants.

One pair of tennis shoes for walking.

One pair of sandals for the pool.

This is still four pair of shoes and I have had to bring five on a couple of occasions.

How many do you take?

Take care,
Mike

Mike, you little Imelda Marcos!

:-)

With careful planning, it's: One pair of black shoes, one pair of sneakers and flipflops. I usually wear the sneakers when embarking to save the suitcase space.

Harry,
I'm only one pair ahead of you. Does that only make me an Ivana Trump. <VBG>

Take care,
Mike

Black shoes for both formal and daily wear (take patent leather shoes only if not worried about weight), one pair of walking shoes, and one pair water shoes (only for warm water cruises).

Ok, DH is in the Imelda catagory! He packs 1 pair dress black for formal night, brown casual for dinner, 2 pair of sneakers (just in case 1 gets wet etc), usually he wears sandals and has water shoes. Now trip to Alaska was a whole different ball game. Had to add boots (the water kind) and workboots

Jose will take as many as he can drag along behind him in a suitcase! ! I think I finally have him convinced that this time, for the Alaska cruise/tour, we should lighten the load a little bit. I'll let you know when we come back what he actually took with him!

I'm with Harry, three pair usually and 'maybe' four if I have to bring brown shoes with me. My wife on the other hand.........I have to bring a seperate suitcase that contains nothing but her shoes and trust me, it is not a carry-on type but a full-fledged suitcase!
