I live in Hawaii and hop islands frequently. Rubber Slippers for me. I make sure my pedicure is fresh.

God, I love CD. I ask about shoes and get advice on TSA Precheck instead I have been seriously considering it. The main reason I haven't gotten it yet is because only a small minority of my flights involve going through security. The rest are tiny commuter flights where neither bags nor people are screened.

I agree with those saying PreCheck, but if you're an infrequent traveler, please don't (speaking in general, not necessarily directed at the OP). It's getting frustrating that the PreCheck line is getting slowed down by increasing numbers of people who clearly don't fly often and have no clue what they're doing. This past Saturday, I had to stop some guy who was pulling his laptop out of his bag.

TSA pre-check is cheaper than a good pair of shoes. And I can wear whatever shoes I want.

If you rarely have to go through security, why is removing your shoes such a problem when flying?

I want to get loafers anyway because these flights are long ones and my feet swell so slipping my shoes off ocasionally helps.

I've worn Naturalizer shoes with an elastic band for years. Easy on & off, and they stay on my narrow feet better than loafers. Look through their mary jane collection and you'll find some styles in leather and a new canvas style of flats with comfortable soles.

I like trying them on in store because my shoes run narrow at times. I sometimes get kid's shoes due to the narrow thing as well, so kid's suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
If you’re wearing tennis shoes, what about slip on Vans or Sketchers? Or Vionics?

You sound like you have already found the answer in your OP:

1. Drive to the shoe store
2. Try out some of the shoes
3. Buy the pair that you like.

You're welcome, in advance.
