So yes, comfort and fitting are non-negotiable. Most footwear is built to fit well and last long, but of course, when packing for a trip, you have to pick and choose your footwear – often depending on the kind of trip you’re going on. Comfort is important but style is also a must; you will surely visit more than one type of place, or wear more than one type of outfit. And of course, footwears have match your outfit, because hey, who wants to look bad on the trip, right?
Choosing your travel footwear might seem like a not very important aspect, but as you go along, you’ll understand that your footwear makes a difference. Here are our top picks on what footwear to add to your luggage, And what trips they are perfect for.
- Trainers: For The Active And Adventure Trips
If you intend to do lots of walking and hiking during your trip then I recommend you take along a pair of comfortable trainers. I’m a huge fan of Nike Free trainers in black. They’re simple, comfortable, and stylish so they can be worn in cities, on the streets, as well as when hiking through the mountains. This is the perfect balance of comfort, traction, weight, and durability.
- Heels: Apt For Both Business And Pleasure
If you are going out for a nice dinner, lunch, or drinks, then you’ll want a fancy pair of heels. I love wedge heels but they take up so much space in your luggage, so stick to one pair of black stilettos heels. The best part is that they can instantly dress up a plain outfit. Additionally, they pair great with formal wear as well. Always stick to black, it will match every outfit you have. Do not be tempted to pack more than one pair, you don’t need them!
- Flip Flops: For Comfortable Beach Trips
On some days, you just want to let your feet breathe, take a break from closed shoes or heels, and wear flip-flops. Some people think that flip flops look tacky, but once your feet are used to them they’re the easiest footwear to travel with and let’s be honest, flip flops are an all-around favorite. You can wear them anytime and I personally recommend them because flip flops are comfortable yet stylish. Especially if you are going to the beach, flip-flops would be the ideal comfortable footwear. Yes, sometimes cheap flip flops tend to break quickly and can give you blisters between your toes, but that is easily avoidable by wearing good quality footwear rather than cheap ones.
These are just the most basic, common footwear that you could take along and never go wrong with. Depending on the type of trip you are on, be it vacation or business, and the type of climate you’re headed to, be it warm or cold, there are many more out there to choose from!
