All of our vacuum bags will work well with clothing. However, if you're traveling then make sure that you will be able to get clothes back into the bag and vacuum packed no matter where you go.

Make sure that it doesn't take up more room in your backpack than you save, and make sure it's a sturdy type which is unlikely to break if the backpack drops three stories onto concrete.

You could, but I recommend against it.
First - I have no idea what kinds of shoes you wear or what kinds of soles they have, but I have <
Second - putting shoes into plastic bags (even with the air mostly removed) may very quickly lead to mold or mildew forming on/in the shoe. There is a lot of moisture from feet that gets absorbed by the shoe material. If that moisture has no where to evaporate to, then it will remain in the shoe and lead to mold or mildew which will wreck the shoe.
If you decide to go ahead with this, then you need to make sure the shoes are dry, AND include multiple packets of moisture absorbing material inside each bag. Silica Gel is one common material that is frequently included with commercially packed items. I don't know where you might buy that, but I'm sure an internet search would give you leads.
You would think the silica gel packs that come in shoe boxes would be ideal, but they only absorb small amounts of humidity, not substantial wetness or moisture. They don't "keep out moisture", only soak it up in small amounts.
A much better option it cat litter. It is designed to absorb moisture and odor and a great many contain silica gel. Just place some in a cotton drawstring bag and place it in the middle of the items you are going to vacuum seal.
