Best Shoes to Wear When Traveling

It's vacation time and that means travel!  Lucky for us 
today's guest author Amy Fountain has some thoughts 
to share with us about the best shoes to wear while traveling.

1. Loafers

Loafers are coming back with a vengeance. What is great about them is that they are flat, they are comfortable and they are stylish. They are great for different kinds of outfits. Jeans, dresses, shorts – loafers are perfect. On the other hand, these are not ideal when traveling to countries with heavy downpour of snow.

2. Oxford shoes

Oxford shoes are great for travel because they are so stylish and comfortable. You can even choose from breathable oxford shoes with cut outs on the side, heeled oxfords, wedge oxfords, flat oxfords or half oxford shoes. Choose the one most suitable for your traveling needs.

3. Sneakers

Sneakers should definitely be included. These are great if you are planning to do a great amount of walking when traveling. It is also ideal for driving. You can choose from denim sneakers, glitter bling sneakers and even hand-painted sneakers. There are so many designs to choose from. Those people who want a bit of height to their shoes even when traveling can choose from wedge or low-heeled sneakers.

4. Sandals

They are perfect for the spring and summer season. Today, you can choose from ankle strap sandals, Mary Jane sandals, double strap Mary Jane sandals or slip on sandals. Pair it with a nice floral dress, high-waisted shorts or even jeans and you are good to go. On the other hand, they are not as great during rainy travel seasons.

5. Creepers

I find creepers really ideal for traveling. If you choose your creepers well, you’ll find one as comfortable as sandals. They add a bit of high without stretching your calves or the soles of your feet. In fact, they are as flat as loafers and sandals. If you want more height to your shoes sans the pain, creepers are ideal choices. You can also choose from different edgy and stylish designs that will go so well with any casual travel outfit.

Make sure you break your shoes in before you bring them for travel. New shoes, no matter how comfortable they are, still hurt when they are new.
