The holiday season is officially upon us and because humans are a varied bunch, tourists are sure to be visiting a wide variety of destinations. One of the main concerns for travellers is comfort, particularly for their feet if walking is a big part of their holiday.
The first thing to consider when purchasing shoes is the type of holiday you’re actually going on; you definitely don’t want to wear sandals on a skiing trip or woolly boots to the beach. Not only that; if you’re travelling quite a distance you may also want to factor in comfort for your feet on the plane or ferry.
Here at Sole Comfort, we can give you all the advice you need to find the perfect shoes for your holiday this year. Due to the fact that it is summer and many holiday-goers will be jetting off to somewhere warm to relax or go exploring, we’re going to focus specifically on shoes that provide the most comfort, breathability and durability for walking and travel.
What are the best ladies travel shoes?
- Best All-round Travel Shoe: Sneakers
Ladies sneakers have had a sudden resurgence recently and it’s easy to see why. An incredibly practical shoe and a great all-rounder, sneakers are available in a wide range of styles and colours. With a variety of designs and embellishments to choose from, sneakers make for fantastic holiday shoes, as they are easy to slip on and off and allow your feet to breathe. If you love wearing sandals but aren’t a fan of showing off your feet too much, sneakers are an ideal alternative and are the best option for destinations with warm to moderate climates. A smart pair of sneakers look wonderful with most outfits, particularly evening wear or jeans and a top. We recommend Doris and Dora. These sneakers will take you from day to night, providing a chic finishing touch to any ensemble.
Here at Sole Comfort, we have a wide range of ladies sneaker styles to choose from, so you’re certain to find the ideal pair (or pairs!) for your next holiday.
- Best Walking Shoes for Travel: Walking Sandals
If your holiday involves a lot of walking, consider walking sandals your new best friend. Providing the perfect level of support to the entire sole of your foot, no matter how far you plan to walk you can be sure that your feet will be free of aches and pains. Easy to put on and remove due to their velcro fastenings, you can also easily adjust the tightness of the straps to suit your preference. You need to look for walking sandals that are both summery and supportive. Our top three picks for walking sandals are; Amanda, Amber and Andrea. The pretty designs and colouring are perfect for those looking to add a little unique, contemporary touch to their outfit and our signature anti-stress technology makes them a comfort essential.
- Best Dress Shoes for Travel: Wedge
When asked if they should pack high heels for leisure travel, it seems that most women agree: skip the heels and pack comfortable wedge heels if you can’t do without a dressy shoe. And we don't think you will find a better travel wedge than Whitney. Whitney comes in black and soft pink and is so comfortable you won't even know you have a wedge on!
The one other shoe we think deserves a mention for travel is Sina. Sina is perfect if you are travelling somewhere cooler, is dressy and will go from day to night with ease.
Choosing your travel wardrobe is almost as fun as planning your holiday!
