We'd like to get any sneakers/hiking boots/sandals for our spring '07 trip now, so we have plenty of time to break them in (and so we won't feel bad about trashing brand new shoes on the BI's lava and Kauai's red dirt).
I know the issue of how many pairs/what types of shoes to bring on a trip to HI has been visited before, but I'm still pretty much in the dark on what the smartest options are.
Which of the following do you recommend we bring (we plan to do some easy to moderate hiking, lots of walking, time at the beach, as much snorkeling as possible, and an evening out here and there):
1. Hiking boots
2. Sneakers--cross-trainer athletic-type sneaks
3. Sneakers--more casual Keds-type sneaks
4. Sports sandals--Keens, Tevas, etc.
6. Reef shoes
7. Sexy-mama shoes for me/Dressy shoes for hubby (for that evening or two out on the town)
Feedback greatly appreciated!
