I am trying to find out a pair of shoes as most versatile as possible.
I mean, let's assume your are leaving for a (long) weekend and you know you are going to hang out with friends in a pub (very casual/sport scene) then maybe you are going to an informal restaurant with your parents in law, so sneakers would not be an option and maybe you are wearing a jacket over jeans, and perhaps the day after you need a confortable shoe for a long walk.
Obviously, you want to pack superlight and not to carry another pair of shoes besides the one you have on your feet.
I went to north of spain recently, and I knew it was raining, so I needed waterproof shoe, and I knew I had to walk a lot. At the end I thought a sort of black trailrunning in goretex was a good call (Salomon or nike or whatever), and I made the best choice, especially because spain is very informal even if you go to eat tapas. But there are many other scenarios where you need something different.
Any idea? Timberland? what else?
thanks in advance
