    I have been trying to find a good pair of shoes to pack and bring on longer overseas trips.

    Thinking a knit top like AllBirds or Adidas Ultraboosts

    anyone rocking any of those?

    what the fuck are travel shoes?

    I have traveled in almost every shoe I own... so they're all technically travel shoes.

    I guess comfy shoes for walking around cities all day.

    but can also be worn out for a nice dinner or whatever.

    I am trying to only pack maybe 1 pair of shoes for a trip and maybe some flip flops

    I don't think paking my Asics would work for a nice dinner.

    meh. I'm a jeans, t-shirt and sneakers guy. Many times when I'm traveling I'll go back to my hotel and change out of my business casual work attire into something comfortable and meet my colleagues at dinner. I'm the only person in jeans, t-shirt and sneakers at our table and I don't give a fuck. I'm comfortable, they're not... sucks to be them.

    well for work trips, that is how I am too.

    but for a trip to Spain, I don't want to go with just bright ass running sneakers as my one shoe for 10 days.

    well I need to figure out what shoes first...

    these are the AllBirds...I think I would rather go with the Adidas pair that looks like them

    I like comfort and arch support when I'm walking extensively or hiking. Like the Iverson line of Reebok sneakers bought a few years ago.

    Did you ever buy some Allbirds? I see ads all the time for them, and am tempted to buy some.

    I did not

    bought a pair of adidas sneakers that did just fine

    I have a coworker who has a pair of All Birds though. He likes them. They look funny to me.

    I think they look fine. Actually, picked up a pair of Nike that look kind of similar-ish

    knit shoes like that have become very popular
