Shoes can be a bit of a problem when it comes to packing luggage. Chances are you will be going to a variety of places that require a variety of outfits. Some casual. Some fancy. Because of this you will need to pack a variety of shoes (sneakers, loafers, slippers, thongs, etc.) The problem with this is that shoes are not the cleanest clothing item. It's not like you can chuck ‘em in the laundry either. Soles of shoes are especially a problem. There's all kinds of dirt that can be wedged into ‘em. Which in turn they can pass along to your clean blouse in the same suitcase. The best thing you can do is keep your shoes covered. Put your pair in a zip lock storage bag or an old pair of socks. Anything that will prevent the dirt from the shoes from getting on everything else. If you have other pockets on the bag you might want to consider placing your shoes in ‘em.
