Unless we are travelling for a photo shoot, no one needs too much clothes on a trip. Two pairs of jeans, a few T-shirts, clean underwear and a few pair of socks – that's all we need for a casual trip. When we are taking thousands of pictures every day, it doesn't matter what we are wearing, but what matters is the surrounding. We are not going to remember our clothes when we think back on our adventures, but the amount of fun we had. Besides, there are many ways to diversify a simple outfit with scarves and simple jackets that will take a small space in our luggage but help us a lot.
The pair that you are wearing and a backup – that's the total number of shoes you need to pack while you are traveling. Unless you have to attend a formal invitation or a presentation; if that is the case, you might need an additional pair. Do you really need to carry shoes to match your everyday outfits? Not really! A versatile, strong pair is all you need. If that gets lost, stolen or damaged, the backup would come in handy. You definitely don't need any more than that. Shoes are heavy and add extra weight to your luggage, and they take up a lot of space.
