What shoes are pilgrims using on the Camino de Santiago?

The question was:

Hi all, there are so many threads in regards to footwear, many opinions, many different kinds of footwear. I know a common reply is: “use what works best for your feet” and “the same thing does not work for everyone”, while that is true it’s nice as a newbie to get some ideas on where to start. My wish is not to start another discussion I was hoping you could list what shoes you wear both during the walk and in the evening and perhaps a comment on why that works for you. Just to put some ideas in a beginners mind :).

Read the list of shoes (names of brands and model) that pilgrims posted in our forum.

Is it inevitable for feet to stink, or a sign of bad shoes?
