    I'm looking for some travel shoes that are not space hogs in my luggage. Good enough for simple dinners out that might turn into 5 hours of dancing. I'd probably only wear khakis with them, nothing too formal.

    What are your favorite travel shoes?

    Dark brown suede oxfords, very versatile, does a great job in most occasions

    My travel shoe choice depends upon where I am going and the purpose of the trip. I spend months at a time on business in Asia and Europe. No shoe is comfortable for 10 - 18 trips so I wear something that slips off easily. Rubber soles are also a must. Sperry Topsiders in black/brown two-tone are my shoe of choice. For short domestic business trips I wear a leather loafer (Bally or Bruno Magli) that doubles as a casual sport coat and trouser shoe.

    Clarks Desert Boots;

    Slip on and off easily at the airport, comfortable to wear, also look fantastic. I like to wear them because they're surprisingly durable.

    Ha, at least you can admit it. Decent shoes to own nonetheless.

    A pair of trainers:

    And a pair suede chukkas (per the above recommendation):

    I am biased because I own both of the shoes above but I will tell you that they are both very light, very comfortable and very good looking.

    Tretorn sneakers and Alden Chukka's

    The Savile monk in suede from C&J. Versatile, goes with everything from chinos and jeans to (arguably) a suit.
