Keeping ourselves as comfortable as possible is the number one priority while traveling. This is especially important when it comes to footwear. We don’t want to get unwanted blisters or other scratches on our feet when embarking on major trips!
So what makes a good travel shoe? It has to fit your needs and look and be the most comfortable version of that particular style. If you’re a low-key traveler that doesn’t mind rocking some slides or sneakers, or if you prefer to look more elegant like people did back when taking a flight was a glamorous affair, there is a pair of shoes that can suit your needs. Checking reviews online is the best way to go while shopping. If multiple reviewers mention just how optimal a certain shoe is, that’s a sign that you’re in the right place.
We like every pair of shoes that we buy to have versatility, so it’s important to find ones that you won’t necessarily want to wear solely for traveling. If you’re stepping off a plane and heading straight to an upscale dinner, comfortable heels are a must. If you can’t get away with wearing your UGGs to an event, consider wearing an elevated pair of ankle booties. The perfect pair of travel shoes are out there, and to help you on your search we’ve picked out 15 of the absolute best available on Zappos right now!
