How do you guys handle shoes and travel?
I'm new to proper shoes, but not to travel.
Here's my dilemma, I finally have my starter-set of AE's and am about to spend a week away at a conference and in meetings. In the past, I would have tried to wear one pair and pack another that goes with a bunch of outfits.
Now, I'd like to not wear a good pair too many days in a row, and I'd also like to be out in my new shoes.
I won't be wearing any suits. It will be chinos and jeans with shirts most of the time, a few meetings will call for a sportcoat.
I can make a case for the navy neumok, the natty HM, and the walnut strands. But that seems like a lot of shoes...
It's a 5 hour direct flight.
My usual flying shoes are a pair of vans or some Clarks driving mocossins.
The boots might be a bit much for a long-ish flight, but also large to pack.
Do you guys bring trees for each pair?
I wear one pair and pack one (I'm wearing my McTs today and the Academys are in my bag). I take the trees out of the pair that has been resting the night before (when I take my shoes off from a day of wear). I travel with a 6" brush. For what youv'e got, I'd take the Neumoks and the Strands for versatility.
