I love shoes, and part of the fun of going on vacation (for us) is dressing up for dinner every night. I always bring a LOT of shoes that I get to match my dresses. I don't care if I only wear them once while we are there -- it's not every day that we get dressed up and go out for a nice meal, so we make the most of it!
That being said - I don't remember ever having a real issue with the board walks and shoes at CN. Bring the shoes you want to bring and celebrate! Worst case scenario: you go back to the room and put on a different pair of shoes.
