The best shoes for travelling


Sore, blistered and puffy feet can turn any trip into a nightmare. Here are some of our favourite shoes that are perfect for travelling.

 Ballet flats or loafer

Don’t bother taking your $20 pair of ballet flats, you need something sturdy, comfortable and flattering. A good pair of ballet flats or loafers can be worn during the day, adventuring around town or for an evening out.

Our recommendation; Jayde by Supersoft or Peppa by Steggmen, both flats offer leather upper and cushioned insole for all day comfort. These styles can also be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

 The Leisure Shoe

The leisure shoe is a must for travelling. If you are doing lots of walking around town and don’t want to take bulky sneakers these are your go to. They also look chicer than your average sneaker and care more versatile.

Our recommendation; Go Step Lite-Origin by Skechers, Around Town by Merrell or Galaxy by Supersoft. All of these options are light weight, making them a dream to travel with. They also offer a cushioned insole for all day comfort.

 Sturdy Sandals

If you are heading somewhere hot, you don’t want to be constricted to wearing in closed shoes everywhere. Sandals can give you a lot of grief,  so make sure they are the right size, fit and have been well worn in before taking them with you.

Our recommendation; Gizeh by Birkenstock or Around Town Slip On by Merrell. Both of these options have a sturdy thick sole with a moulded insole for greater support. Plus, both styles are very on trend at the moment, you can’t go wrong.

 Sneaker or trainer

If you are doing more adventure activities on your travels, a good quality sneaker is a must. Again, make sure they are well worn in before leaving. Choose a shoe that offers superior support, especially if you will be going off road.

Our recommendation; Go Run-400 by Skechers or Agility Peak-Flx by Merrell. Go Run is a great running sneaker offering mesh upper and goga mat insole. Agility is specially made for trail running, meaning it will give you superior grip and support in both wet and dry weather conditions.

Happy Travels!
