yeah you can bring shoes in your carry on. The TSA website has a list of prohibited items.

@flyinkatie:  You can put whatever you want in your purse/tote/personal item!  Just be aware that if it’s a full flight, they will want you to put it under the seat in front of you instead of in the overhead.  So make sure it’s not huge…

Have fun on vacay – where ya going?

I’ve packed all sorts of shoes (e.g. boots, flip flops, heels) in my carryon. It’s fine.

I would try and consolidate. I travel quite a bit for work and pleasure, and always try and limit my shoes. I love them, but they take up too much darn space. Can you decide on 1 pair of formal shoes that will go with all your outfits? I used to overpack like crazy and found I didn’t wear all the shoes I packed. 

Just so you know, the smaller carry-on MUST fit under the seat in front of you. I’ve noticed a lot of airlines are enforcing this, with flight attendants on board only allowing you to stow your larger carry-on in the overhead compartment. I just came back from Atlanta on Tuesday, and they were doing this coming and going.

There’s no issue putting shoes in your carry-on, but i’d really recommend at least one pair of comfy shoes for walking, and taking fewer pairs of shoes. If you pack strategically, you really shouldn’t need more than 2-3 pairs, including the ones you wear on the plane. It’s just more crap to carry/lug around, otherwise!

There are no rules regarding what you put in your personal item, it just has to be able to fit underneath the seat in front of you (most flights these days have very full overhead compartments because no one checks bags, so flight attendants can be pretty strict about the second item going at your feet).

Sorry, I shouldn’t say there are no rules–obviously the rules about liquids, firearms, knives, etc still apply. I just meant that as far as shoes and clothing go there are no rules. 

Also, as a heads up if you haven’t flown in awhile: they make you take off your shoes at security, so make sure that they are easily removed ones.
