We’re down to the last quarter of the year, where would you guys be going for your holiday?
I can’t stress the importance of choosing the right shoes for your trip. When I say right shoes, I don’t mean shoes that match every outfit you’ll be wearing. I mean the pair of shoes that are comfortable and let you walk miles. I know we all struggle with deciding between comfort and style but you don’t have to. There are shoes that are travel friendly without compromising on appearance.
Of course, the type of shoes you decide is also dependent on where you are going. I’ll talk about my shoe picks for travelling to three different places.
If you’re going to countries in Asia or anywhere with temperatures above 20 degrees, the casual leather shoe will do just fine. You don’t want to be worrying too much on styling while you’re on the go. A good pair of travel shoes should be versatile – casual leather shoes can work with both trousers and berms. You can walk around in ease in this pair in the day and also look smart while going into a restaurant for dinner. Another element that’s important during travelling would be durability. You’ll want to be wearing shoes that can withstand all that walking, so don’t bring along new shoes but a seasoned pair.
Oh yes, another travel tip would be to invest in good socks. Don’t belittle the importance of socks, they can help prevent blisters! I’m sure we all want a dry feeling as we’re walking so find socks made of quick absorbing material.
If you’re going to somewhere cold or during the winter season, the best kind of shoes to wear is boots. You should choose a pair of boots with substantial weight, that provides more grip so you can feel more confident wearing it. The boots should have a soft leather exterior with a fur lined interior to keep you warm.
If you’re going to a hotter place, your feet may expand or swell so sandals might be a better choice. These lightweight sandals are breathable and can be worn on general terrain or even to the beach. The fact that these shoes won’t take up much space or weight in your suitcase is a definite plus point as well. They’ll be great to bring along on beach holidays and island hopping trips.
A great pair of sandals has to be durable, comfortable; the right fit and have good traction.
Remember that it’s essential that you treat your feet well while travelling because one thing is for sure, you’d be walking a lot more than usual.
Have a great holiday everyone!
