I actually like Sketchers Shape-ups for long days at the park. They seem to be most comfy. I also like Easy spirit clog sneakers - they are my every day sneaker at home.

BUT - my biggest Disney rule is NEVER wear the same shoes two days in a row. No matter how comfortable shoes may be, 2 days in a row is killer on my feet.

I swear by Brooks Tennis Shoes.

I wore classic style Toms during our trip. I bought them a couple of weeks before our trip so I could break them in. They were perfect, and I am soooo glad that I chose to wear them for our trip. I had no problems with my feet at all. They are now my go-to shoes when I will be doing a lot of walking. I do not like to wear tennis shoes because I hate to wear socks. I would highly recommend Toms!

I wore Nike comfort thongs in the parks last October and I loved them.

Yes, why do you think you need to wear socks and sneakers if your Keens are comfortable. I wouldn't go to Disney World without my Keens, and I would never wear them with socks. Tennis shoes and socks are waaaay to warm for October for me. After 12 hours of walking in the heat trapped in closed shoes...icky, no thank you. My feet would feel like they were in a sauna and be prunes.

I also have a new pair of teva mush mandalyn wedges that I am going to try out...because they are just so stinking cute.

I alternated between two different pairs of classic Toms during our last trip (and put coffee and bac-out in the shoes that were "resting" each day to kill foot smell) and had the best experience I've ever had on a walking vacation. NO blisters the entire time, which had never ever happened before!

Toms mold to your foot shape, rather than being built for a particular foot shape. In addition, if one foot is significantly larger than the other, they will still work extremely well.

Teva Mush work on the same principle, so they're good for all foot types, but I've only ever found them in flip flop style and I'm not good with flip flops all day walking.

(Oh, and if you get a Tom shoe soaking wet in a Disney downpour, you can run a blow dryer over it and it will dry out amazingly fast. . .your DH's NB 12whatevers will dry amazingly slow. . .yes, I know this from experience. )
