I will be traveling, for the first time, to India in early January so the weather is said to be in the mid 80's. This may seem like a silly question but I'm not sure what type of shoes to wear. In NY, in that type of weather, I usually wear ballet slippers or sandals. Neither of those seem right for India.
About shoes in India:
The main thing to consider is you will be leaving your shoes outside historical buildings, shops, cafes and some hotels - so make sure they are easy to get on and off.
Slip-ons are best.
India has lots of shoe shops, so you can even choose more shoes when you get there!
Enjoy your trip.
