Pampered Chef: I know, this is something stupid to think about, but I keep hearing

    I know, this is something stupid to think about, but I keep hearing that you should pack comfy shoes. I'm having anxiety about what the bring, what to leave at home...

    So, my question is for those that have been to conference before. Should I bring like tennis shoes for walking and bring along a pair of nicer shoes in my bag every day? I'm famous for getting blisters, so I want to be comfy, but I also don't think my running shoes are going to look great with my nice outfits.

    Please shed some light...thanks!

    Re: Shoes

    You can certainly wear your sneaks for the walking and switch to dressier shoes if you like. If you're wearing slacks it's unlikely that anyone will notice if you just leave your comfy shoes on.

    I know this won't help, but don't let yourself get all stressed out. Chances are good that no one will notice what you're wearing. We're all too busy learning and having fun.

    What I do is I wear a new pair of Skechers sneakers, all black you cannot tell that they are sneakers. I also wear pants/slacks (not capris) & I look fine. The night of the Executive Banquet I wear nice shoes, but they usually come off real fast....;) hope this helps! :D

    I have a pair that looks almost like these:

    They're actually listed as "dress shoes" on Skechers' website.

    Re: Shoes

    I was going to get those & I asked a few of the kids I cross if they were comfortable & they said not really, so I got these....

    oh well I can't copy & paste, so you'll just have to wait till Conference....:eek:

    Noora: I wore shoes just like them (in white) my first year. They were fine except.....I didn't have a chance to break them in and I got blisters. I will probably bring them again this year. I can not wear flip flop because of no support. I agree with others, don't stress over it! There is a lot (and I mean a lot) of walking, so make sure you can wear them all day.

    Re: Shoes

    My ankles tend to roll, so I always wear running shoes with a roll-bar in them. EVERYWHERE! I do wear nice shoes to the banquet and when I walk the stage, but the rest of my life gets the tennies!

    Re: Shoes

    One good thing to help with blisters is Mole Skin. You can find it in the footcare section of any grocery/pharmacy. The normal use is to put it on your skin where you get a "hot spot" (the spot before a blister appears) but my favorite thing to do with it is to actually put it inside of my shoes. I've used it in sneakers that the back was worn down on exposing the plastic inside, sandals that had a weird plastic label in the strap, etc.
