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.
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.
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.
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).

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.

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…
