Dear internet, please find me some shoes

I'm off on a hot-climate-followed-by-cool-climate holiday, and am looking for the perfect pair of women's shoes to sightsee in. I'm also taking hiking boots and sandals, but I'd like an in-between pair for all the rest. Requirements: COMFORTABLE, vegan, rain-resistant (or at least, won't totally dissolve at the sight of a puddle), breathable (for the hot days), plain (to visit mid-range restaurants with a dress). For bonus points: will ship to the Antipodes without costing more than my airfare.

Help me find these golden high-tops!

So this website sells these awesome Game of Thrones House Martell high-top sneakers. Unfortunately they don't have them in my size (US Men's 13). I cried for a bit, and now I'm asking: Where can I find high-tops in a similar golden-orange color? I really love it!

I'm here to buy shoes; I don't need the extended powertrain warranty

Where (if anywhere) can I go in Manhattan to browse a reasonably large selection of high-quality men's dress shoes and try them on in different sizes without needing to deal with any salespeople? A warehouse with a bench would be fine. I am a guy with large but not gargantuan feet if that matters. Thanks.

Shopping for Disney shoes for August

A portmanteau for this man's poor toes:
  • Are Keen Newports good shoes for a long trip to Disney World in August? If not, what beats them? I mean, can I simply wear my running shoes?
  • Do you try on footwear like this with or without socks?
  • Do you allow extra room on the assumption that your feet will swell in the steam heat?

    Good stores for pretty shoes in Bangor, Maine

    I am a Canadian who is going to be going down to Bangor, Maine in a couple weeks time. One task for the trip is to find shoes for the wedding. I have really difficult feet to fit and I was hoping to get some suggestions for places to try. (Suggestions for plus size clothing stores that have cute/retro/fashionable would also be helpful.)

    Search and buy shoes by size AND width - in Canada

    I'm shopping for shoes and have a wide foot. Last I looked, Zappos had the best search option for filtering out shoes that would not fit me. Alas, I live in Canada and apparently Zappos Canada recently stopped business. What are my options in Canada for a good online store that has advanced search options like Zappos? Perhaps my only route is going onto company websites - but the only companies that I know for sure have some sort of width measurement system are: Rockport, Sketchers, New Balance....

    How can I buy a pair of shoes only sold in the UK?

    How can I buy a pair of shoes only sold in the UK? There is a pair of Clarks that I want but the model is only available in the UK. The website will only ship with in the UK and the US retail stores can't order them. I have an email into Clarks UK and I'm awaiting an answer. I don't know anyone in the UK so I cant ask them to buy them and ship them. Is there a way I can buy them and get them to New Jersey? Some sort of shipping relay?

    Help me find these grey boots elsewhere. Or other disressed leather boots!

    I've fallen head-over-heels in love with these gray boots from the Sundance catalogue. I love the color, the heel, the shape, and the overall style. They feel very me. But they're almost $300 when you include their exorbitant shipping fees. Ouch. Any suggestions on other similar boots or how to find these elsewhere? [more inside]
