5 Types of Shoes For Travel

road trip

Travelling is one of the most popular activities most people enjoy, and like to do, especially when the season is right. All you need to do is to make sure you have some cash saved up and a nice destination picked out for your next travel vacation; otherwise, travelling is an easy and free activity you should all get to enjoy. One thing about travelling, though, that usually has people all worked up and confused is on the type of shoe to wear for your extended travelling vacation.
You see, more often than not, the type of shoe you pick for your travel, usually boils down to what you plan to do on your trip. This goes to say that, if your plan is to tour foreign cities and visit different museums, there is a shoe for that particular purpose. The same applies for beach tours, island hopping, hiking, and the like. And the best thing about all of it is that you don’t have to sacrifice style for purpose anymore. Nowadays, shoes are built for style and comfort, regardless of what it is you are doing.




Flats
Obviously, you plan on doing a lot of walking, so it means you’ll need a shoe that is pretty and lightweight; and what else can put these characteristics into perspective better than a pair of flats. Just find an ideal pair, which offers the right degree of arch support for your feet, and you’ll be able to cover many miles, as you explore cities and the different attractive spots along the way. To narrow down your options, you can go for Dr.Scholl’s flats, Crocs Women’s Sienna Flats, or Patagonia Women’s Maha Flats.

Sneakers
Sneakers come in handy when you plan to visit a town or want to get lost in a foreign village, as you explore the different traditional markets available. Then it’s perhaps a good thing that you are able to opt for sneakers of varying styles and with tremendous orthopedic value. That, not only guarantees you extra comfort, but also allows you to put on a good outfit to go along with it. You can, for example, go for a good pair of Sperry Seacoast Canvas Sneakers, Reebok Neoprene Skyscape Sneakers or an equally ideal pair from Chuck Taylor’s.

Loafers/slip-on
shoes
Nothing beats a good pair of oxfords on a spring day. They are elegant, comfortable, and come in various designs that go well with a pair of shorts, pants, as well as dresses and skirts. That’s everything you need for a sunny walkabout in a strange new land. Go for a Dune London Flatform Loafer, or a Michael Kors loafer if you are looking for that stylish spring in your
step.




Sandals/flip
flops
If your travel plans happen to have some room left out to walk on sandy beaches and/or island hopping, then good pair of sandals or flip flops goes a long way. They are easy to walk on, and come in handy when you’re visiting various temples and old museums; mainly because, many of them require tourists to take off their shoes before they enter. So, it would be tiring if, for example, you had your favorite trainers on. On the other hand, sandals are easy to remove and slip back on. Just make sure the ones you go for have a good grip, like the Teva Sandal or the Mephisto Women’s Helen Thong Sandals.

Hiking
boots
Lastly, we have hiking boots, which, as the name suggests, are proper for handling rough terrain, usually the kind you find on hiking trips. This way, you can wander off and get lost in the wilderness without having to worry about getting blisters or achy feet. Not to mention, there are some good waterproof options available. For example, you can go for Keen men’s and women’s Targhee II, the Men’s Moab Mid Gore-Tex-M or the ASICS Women’s Gel-Fit Training Shoes.
