Yeah, I always bring a variety of shoes to wear just in case.

My feet tell me that I have GOT to have a second pair of shoes to kick around camp in.  Merrell Trail Gloves (trail running shoes) make comfy camp slippers and passable walking shoes.  Bit pricey, but under a pound for the pair.  Pack pretty small, but I carry them outside unless it's raining.

I have been touring with Montrail Mountain Masochist shoes and VP Platform pedals. The Shoes are a light hiking shoe so the sole is stiff and has good traction. I can hike all day in these if I decide to be off the bike for a day. The VP Platform pedals, get the ones with the X pattern so you can take them off with an allen wrench, some do not. This pedal has replacement pins. Love this combination  and have toured in Europe, North and South America with this. The shoes are great, 2nd pair now almost wore out. The pedals hold in wet and muddy conditions and is just the right size platform. Then light shoes for camp and hostels, flip flops. I always wear wool socks to keep my feet happy wet or dry and love smart wool
