If you’re planning a trip this spring or summer, you may already be thinking about what to bring with you on your journey. I always recommend that you begin with the shoes. It’s not too early to start putting your footwear through its paces. There is no other component of a travel wardrobe that has the ability to make or break a trip quite like footwear. Finding the right shoes for spring travels can be difficult, especially when you have to consider both cold and warm weather conditions. After reading this post on how to choose the best travel shoes, take a look at the seven options listed below to ensure that you have the best options for your spring trip!
It was not until a few years ago that wearing sneakers, particularly white sneakers, was automatically associated with being a tourist. However, sneakers are now ubiquitous, and if this is your preferred type of walking shoe, there is no reason for you to leave them at the house. The most versatile sneaker styles will be those that are simple and classic in design and only come in one color. Metallic sneakers, on the other hand, can be quite stylish and versatile, in my opinion.
For spring, flats are a great option, but finding a good pair of flats with arch support can be a difficult task. Dr. Scholl’s makes a fantastic ballet flat that comes in a variety of colors. There is a slight heel to this flat, which makes it ideal for walking long distances. The insole is made of memory foam for added comfort.
Style conscious travelers who want to look chic and fashionable on the road will find pointy toe strappy flats an excellent travel option. Despite the fact that pointy toes are not recommended as “walking shoes” for long distance sightseeing, they can elongate your body and give you a more dressier appearance than a round toe.
Loafers And Oxfords
Loafers (also known as oxfords) are a timeless Spring shoe. Spring is typically associated with the idea that “you don’t have to wear socks if you don’t want to.” The options are endless, but we prefer a structured and stylish pair like the ones pictured above because they can be worn with a variety of different types of pants, skirts, and dresses with relative ease and comfort.
These styles will generally be the most versatile in terms of dressing up or down. Again, soft leather, a well-padded insole, arch support, and a secure fit are all desirable characteristics. Styles with thicker platform soles are popular because they provide additional cushioning. However, it is important to ensure that the platform is stable on uneven surfaces.
Flip flops are comfortable for walking around town and at home, but they can be a difficult shoe to travel in. If you’ve ever ridden the metro in green slides, you can rest assured that your dirty black feet have survived the experience. Although not everyone is comfortable traveling in sandals, I find them to be a necessity on hotter days in the summer. Even though I wouldn’t recommend wearing them on flight or travel days… It is preferable to wear shoes with a closed toe for added protection.
Designs with adjustable straps over the toes and around the ankle will provide the most secure fit. Although I frequently wear backless sandals at home, they are not the most appropriate footwear for travel. I’d also be wary of “strappy” styles with only a few, thin straps, which are becoming increasingly popular. When it comes to travel sandals, tough wins the day.
Due to the fact that I don’t recommend bringing heels on vacation (unless your itinerary requires it), wedges are an excellent alternative. They provide a little extra height while remaining comfortable enough to wear for extended periods of time. Wedges and block heels are ideal for trips that include special events, such as weddings or upscale dining establishments.
When it comes to Spring footwear, you can’t go wrong with a pair of canvas shoes, which can be found in a variety of colors and styles. Shoes made of cotton are lightweight and breathable. The fact that the Spring season brings both chilly and warm weather means that it is critical to keep your feet protected from the wind while still allowing them to breathe from the scorching sun.
Toms is always a fantastic choice because, after you make a purchase, they donate a pair of shoes to someone in need of them. The company even makes open-toed cotton shoes, which are perfect for the Spring and Summer months!
Similar to shopping for a mattress, finding the perfect travel shoe can be a frustrating experience. Everyone has a unique body and a unique set of preferences, making it nearly impossible to achieve the perfect balance for everyone. However, one thing is certain: travel shoes are not only about being functional; we’d prefer it if they were also stylish, durable, and versatile, as well as being comfortable. When packing your next pair of shoes for spring travel, keep these suggestions in mind!
