With schedules, tickets, and other logistics to think about, it’s helpful to bring along a no-fuss wardrobe that offers the most in versatility. You want to easily get around, but you also don’t want to cringe when looking back on your vacation pics. We rounded up the best travel shoes so that you can cruise in comfort and style at the same time.
1. Extended Stay
When you stay somewhere for a week or more, it’s helpful to have travel shoes with maximum potential. You can get a lot of mileage with the Double Fringe Size Zip Boot. The short boot complements a variety of casual and dressy outfits. Plus, it doesn’t get any easier with a side zipper to get them on and off in a snap.
2. For the Car - Driver
Have a long drive ahead of you? Try the Moosehide Driver for men or women. The moccasin is made with genuine leather and features a flexible, nub-patterned sole to grip the pedals while you are on the open road. With their rich look, you’ll be proud to wear them outside the car as well.
3. For the Car - Passenger
If your travel plans include a stretch of road, bring along a cozy pair of slippers. With fluffy pile lining, the Cally is an ideal choice for relaxing in the car. Pull the women’s slippers out again when you’re chilling in the hotel room.
4. Holiday Travel
Look amazing in the family photos with a stylish boot. The Luna Fringe Boot offers comfort by surrounding your foot in soft suede, while the fringe and stitch detailing give you a statement look. The women’s boot will also keep you warm during a post-holiday meal walk.
5. Best For Airplane Travel
The Gabi Slip-On works well for the traveling days of your vacation. With a rubber sole and padded insole, you can jet through the terminal, land your ride share, and haul your luggage while being light on your feet. You also won’t need to worry about holding up the airport lines as you can easily slip them on and off.
6. Best Versatility
The best travel shoes are the ones that you can wear more than once on your trip. Instead of taking 10 pairs of shoes, clear up some valuable luggage space by packing the Venice. The shoes have the look of a moccasin, a sneaker, and a bootie all rolled into one. Mix and match with leggings, jeans, skirts, or dresses.
7. Best for Business Travel
For business travel, a handsome moccasin can get you from the airport to the conference room without having to change. The men’s Venetian and the women’s Deerskin Kilty are sleek loafer-style shoes that are kind to your feet while also providing a polished look.
8. Best For Exploring
With fringe and rawhide laces, the Tramper Boot rocks road trip style. The women’s boot will also keep your feet comfortable and secure for touring the outdoors or anything that comes your way on your adventure.
9. Cold Weather Destination
Cold weather wear doesn’t have to mean frumpy duds. With its sheepskin and wool lining, the stylish Olympia Short Boot will keep you warm and snug whether you are heading toward icy weather, or just need a saving grace while in a chilly airplane cabin. Slide on over leggings or skinny jeans and you’re set.
10. Warm Weather Destination
Ditch the cheap flip-flops and pack a pair of cute sneakers. The Pacific features a fully padded insole to lend you support whether you are seeing the sights or grabbing a mai tai. They’re lightweight, easy to slip on, and look great with shorts or a sundress.
