    i guess it really depends on your job scope.
    but for smart casual for some companies, no jeans allowed.
    shoes usually go for semi casual as long as no trackshoes.

    If no need office attire, then a Polo-t and working pents will be safer bet...you can wear jeans but in black or brown or kakis, not those blue or those designer jeans where color faded or full of designer holes For shirt, alternatively you can consider short sleeve button shirt...but not too flowery kind

    It is entirely up to you. Wear something that you know you would be very comfortable in. Something that no matter what time or how you feel, it would still feel comfortable.

    I am working part time as a cashier now, and I wear my last year's school shoes(a sports shoe). That is very comfortable for me.

    Not if your shoe size is above US12. Mi shoe shopping trip usually stretches for days and hours... and the procedure is more like: 1. go to shop; 2. ask for shoes they have in the biggest size; 3. wait for salesperson to look up and down for the shoes; 4. try them on (and usually don't fit); 5. move on to next shop

    try this, search the internet for the shoe that you want
    call up shop to ask if they carry that shoe in your size
    make list of shops that do
    go shopping based on your list

    3 days max
