Totally agree with you on the New Balances, I had some issues with ingrown toenails when I was a kid because my feet were too wide for my shoes, the podiatrist recommended NB's and i've been walkin on sunshine since!

The most comfortable pair of shoes I've found are Skecher Shapeke-ups. They have a little extra bounce( 83msg) and don't hurt your feet or back. I will own a different pair.

i wear anything that can be easily removed, stashed and then returned to my feet at the end of the show. Or a comfy pair of shit kicker running shoes but I have gone in hiking boots before. Which is great cause you can sneak a flask of wild turkey rare breed in becasue of the height on the ankle!

I go with team New Balance. The only athletic shoes that fit my feet properly. And reasonably priced.

Soft souled, low cut sneakers works best for me. Anything but big, clunky hiking shoes with harder souls, trust me Ive had my feet stomped by guys with clunky shoes or even boots, and thats no fun at all. Bare feet is best if you can pull it off.

I agree, comfortable sneakers (or shoes) are the best. I prefer lighter sneakers, just in case I don't take them off, sometimes you do step on peoples feet. So wooden boots with heals probably are not great if you will be grooving.

I only wear the new balances too, my foot is wide and they have the best selection I've ever found. Sometimes I will add florescent shoelaces for fun.

Converse had some grateful dead sneakers in their chuck taylor colletion. I almost bought a pair, but I can't find them in stores and buying sneakers by mail order is not my thing (even with zappos where I think you can return them for free). Here are some pics of the chuck taylor shoes. They are all over the web and even ebay. I do not know if they are comfortable, again which I think is the most important.
