    I'm not a Crocs fan, because they don't fit my feet. I have, however, bought the Birkenstock version. Looks and fits like a Birkenstock, but made out of solid plastic. Great for washing the car. I keep a pair at work for when it's raining and I don't want to get my leather Birks wet when walking out to the parking lot.

    So, I can't fault ugly shoes. I prefer comfort.

    I remember back in the early 90's when power dressing was all the rage. I had my power suit on, but I wore Birkenstocks with it. I did keep some Aigner heels under my desk in case I really needed to look professional, but for all other times, I wore Birks. I actually had some ladies gasp and whisper, "Are you allowed to wear those?" Try and stop me.

    My fanny packs, man purses, fluorescent socks, mismatched shoes, bright jackets, bell bottoms, and Xmas sweaters never go out of fashion for me. The tour guide keeps track of me easily, “Where’s that bloke in the insane red down jacket? Ah, yes, there he is.”

    Random update on this, I frequently buy quilt cotton for making baby blanket tops (for gifts, because literally every woman my age in my life is currently having babies. I have dogs.) or for making aprons (also for gifts, because I already have too many). The leftover quilt cotton sections from making aprons turns out to be a pretty good size for making simple drawstring bags that I can easily throw in the washer machine, so I'm making myself a couple of pairs of cotton shoe bags. Each shoe will have its own bag, then get stacked in the end pocket of my A30.

    I'm using inexpensive nylon drawstring bags, but that's what I do. I pair of merino socks rolled up in each shoe, each shoe in it's own bag, stacked heel to toe in the end pocket of the A30. I can fit a small stuff sack in there also or an exercise band or something random.
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    Makes sense.
    This is a) to fill a need, b) use materials on hand, c) practice my hand-stitching. I've been wanting small sewing projects that I can take with me so that I can practice and this works great.

    I'm going to try putting things like socks into my good leather shoes, but the canvas shoes pack so much nicer when just left flat. I can usually fit my Gorillapod tripod on top of the two pairs of shoes without straining the zipper at all.

    Ooh, what are these shoes that pack nicely flat? I've been looking for shoes that would do that (while also being comfortable to wear).

    They might not be comfortable for everyone lol but on my last trip I used Xeroshoes Lena's as my everyday walking shoes, which are a zero-drop minimalist shoe with canvas uppers. They're a little snug on me and I think they're being discontinued (they seem to be on permanent clearance) but they have several similar options. I also have their Prio's and they pack pretty flat as well.

    The Lena in specific has been displaced by a women's version of the Hana, which is a very similar design.
