No one ever looks at feet. :D
My husband just brings his black Nikes and wears those with his suit on formal night. I used to bring black satin slippers (looked like ballet shoes) and would wear these with my dresses. I figure even if someone is looking at shoes, they are probably just jealous.
In the past we have sailed on Princess & things were a bit dressier on average. After our last Disney cruise, I told DH that he can leave his suit at home and just wear Dockers, a button up, and tie from then on out.
