Choosing the right shoes for your mission is absolutely essential. Comfort and durability are way more important than style. But because good, dressy, durable, comfortable shoes are often heavy, you can probably only take a few pair with you. And finding good-quality shoes where you are called to serve may prove very difficult indeed. Wear your heaviest pair of shoes on the plane, and fill the shoes you pack with small items such as jewelry, ties, scarves, cosmetics, or other small, fragile items you want to protect.
