I'll endorse that solution as well. I find them ideal particularly for
touring. Unlike many bike shoes, the sandals don't get heavy and
saturated when wet and you can wear sandals in many more situations than
most cycle shoes. It means touring I just need the sandals, a pair of
waterproof socks for wet/cold weather and a pair of black socks (which
worn with long trousers make them quasi black shoes). It means I save
space in the panniers because I don't need a second pair of shoes to eat
out or when the bike shoes are drying off after a wet day.
