5 of Our Favorite Comfy & Stylish Travel Shoes Made For Walking!

Comfortable Shoes For Travel!

How many times have you been on a trip, you end up walking and walking, only to regret your shoe choice later on?? It’s happened to me more times that I can count. Getting your shoes right is SO hard and yet SO important. I only brought a few key pairs of shoes with me when we moved to Spain, and on our recent trip to the Middle East, I only brought three pairs! I wanted to share the best of the best… the shoes that not only look stylish but are also truly made for walking.

If you missed the post on our trip to the Middle East, you can find that here. Plus everything I wore and tips for dressing appropriately but looking stylish in this post.

SNEAKERS | FOR LESS

1) Chloe Sneakers

These super cool Chloe sneakers are perfect for travel because they’re neutral and will go with everything…Plus, they’re very comfortable! They have that chunky-sole platform that’s on-trend and adds a little height. They’re a little more elegant than a plain white sneaker with the black and camel stitching that’s super unique. I wore these in the Middle East with jeans, dresses, shorts, and skirts. They run TTS.

If you’re interested, I shared more about these sneakers and other summer shoe trends in this video.

SLIDES | FOR LESS

2) Mercedes Castillo Slides

These Mercedes Castillo slides were another pair of shoes I took to the Middle East and they’re SO comfortable. Like…walked-for-6-hours-and-my-feet-didn’t-hurt comfortable! They’re really beautiful, high-quality white leather with perforated details on the sides so your feet don’t get hot. And they’re adjustable! The Birkenstock-esque shoes are very “in” right now and these felt like a sophisticated interpretation of the trend. I love the white for summer, but they also come in black. They run TTS.

SLIDES

3) Rag & Bone Slides

I shared these super comfortable slide sandals in this post where I featured an outfit that could go from your couch to the curb and legit feels like pajamas! These sandals have a memory foam sole so they’re unbelievably spongy and comfortable. The straps across your foot are soft too so they don’t cut into your feet. It’s basically like wearing your slippers…but you can actually leave the house in them! I mean…what more could you want? I’d wear these around the house, running errands, and yes, even for long days of walking during travel! Be careful though, this style of shoes can go from chic to frumpy, fast. When I wear these, I like to wear longer pants or jeans with them. I have the black, but they also come in white (perfect for summer).

4) Golden Goose Sneakers

You probably aren’t surprised that Golden Goose sneakers are some of my favorite travel shoes. I know they’re pricey but the cost per wear for me is well worth it. Plus, they’re SO comfortable, stylish, and on-trend. You can walk forever in these, no problem! Your feet will thank you. For a more affordable sneaker brand, check out Veja. I did a full review of their sneakers here in case you’re interested.

5) Slide-On Sneakers

Backless sneakers or mule sneakers solve two main problems I have with travel shoes…they don’t rub my heels and my feet don’t get hot in them! There are tons of slip-on, backless sneaker options out there…even Golden Goose has some. The sneakers I’m wearing are very old but I linked a few of my favorite, similar options above…

  1. Thank you for your comfortable/stylish shoe Update!! Highly recommend Ilse Jacobsen shoes. Presently in Denmark and so best time to check for New Jacobsen shoes…..and…may be a handbag?? Love your blog.
    All the best to you/your Team!

    1. You’re welcome, Angela! Thank you for your sweet words. I’m SO glad you found a shoe you love. ~Erin xo

  2. Old school chucks are my favorite for travel! Shoreline style that are no tie with the elastic ankle makes them easy to slide on and stay on. I wear with no-show socks to control odor when walking excessively. I fly a lot and if pre-check is not available, they don’t hold me up when going through TSA. I have many pairs but usually wear my black ones with loose yoga pants a T and my favorite big scarf… to protect me from germs and cold air 🙂

  3. I don’T know why but mule shoes are difficult to keep on my feet. I have several pairs, but it’s a challenge. I don’t wear mules when i have to cover a lot of ground.

  4. Hi Erin! Thank you for all the resEarch you pUt into the NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY Sale. So helpful! I’m confused about what you said in Your you tube viDeo about Icon status being able to shop online on the 11th. In the email i RECEIVED for icon pre-shop in STORES 9-11, there was no mention of online early access on the 11th. I know you have contacts at Nordstrom, so just wanted to confirm this. That would be awesome! i won’t be home in Colorado then, so I’M going to drive an hour and a half in our rental car to the King of Prussia mall near Philly on the 9th, but If i can’t make it, early online access on the 11th would be great! Thanks again for all your hard work!

  5. PLEASE E-MAIL ME THE FALL/WINTER AND SPRING/SUMMER CHECK LIST. i SIGNED UP THIS MORNING AND SAW THE LISTS BUT NOW I CAN’T PULL THEM UP.
    tHANKS,
