Good travel shoes for running & walking

I am tired of packing my running shoes in my carry-on bag, but also my walking shoes aren't great for running. I'd like to have a combination of good walking & running & also business casual looking shoes - don't have to be great for running, but better than a regular shoe. Any recommendations?

Something like the Nike Air Motion in black would work well.

I've been struggling with similar problem. I want to go two weeks with a rollerboard only, but as a fitness fanatic need a good running shoe and decent dress shoes.

Also as a fitness fanatic who is old and fragile I'd not risk my body to a sub-optimal shoe.

Solution:
1) Good comfortable all around dress/walking shoe, currently find ColeHaan work and wear this.
2) Good running / fitness show, my current solution is carry that as as separate personal item clipped to my backpack

Never had a problem with 2), yet, LOL

Have a look at Nike Roche or Adidas Alphabounce, both in black.

Nike Roshe would also be my suggestion. Whilst I would never wear them in a business setting they are great for walking and running. Comfortable, light, stylish and pack down well.

I dont like white soles on my trainers so I always customise through Nike ID, this might be useful if you wanted an all black or blue shoe for business casual.

Adidas Alphabounce all black or all white works really well. I see a lot of women wearing dress with them. Looks cool.

Cole Haan has some dress and casual shoes with nike air soles. This might work in your situation.

I just wore a pair of Nike Tanjun on a 2 week trip with lots of walking, insanely lightweight, super ventilated, and plenty sharp enough to wear for cas biz.

Mizuno Wave Inspire 11. At home I have the newest version (Wave Inspire 13) to run in but bought a second pair of the older version for traveling. It's still a very solid shoe and I love it for running (and don't mind the wear it gets walking) and cost me ~$55 last year

Just ordered a pair of black Nike Rosche based on your post and the many positive reviews. Always looking for something that packs down and light that I can bring to run a few miles while traveling. Thanks
