Vacation can be the highlight of your entire year. It’s your chance to relax, explore, and have a little fun away from your day-to-day responsibilities. However, to have a good time, you need to be comfortable – and that means having the right shoes. Here’s a list of Foot Petals tips for finding the best travel shoes for your upcoming vacation!
1. CHOOSE LIGHTWEIGHT OPTIONS
In order to fit the most shoes in your luggage, you need to choose lighter options. Light tennis shoes, sandals, thin heels, and slip-ons are the perfect choices for travel shoes. Not only will you be able to bring more with you (and not have to worry about extra baggage fees, yikes!), but you’ll be more comfortable in lighter shoes as well.
2. ALWAYS BRING DESTINATION-APPROPRIATE SHOES
What shoes you should bring with you when traveling depends on the location you’re visiting. If you’re going to a gorgeous beach destination, stick to open-toed, airy shoes like sandals, flip flops, and wedges. If you’re trekking through a tropical forest in Hawaii, bring shoes that won’t be uncomfortable when wet, such as hiking shoes or sturdy tennis shoes.
3. BRING THE RIGHT SUPPORT
Keep your travel shoes comfortable! You need to have the right support for your footwear. For warm weather, Foot Petals Ball of Foot Gel Cushions for Sandals will keep your foot from rubbing against the annoying toe-post. If you are taking new shoes with you, come prepared for that dreaded break-in period! Foot Petals Blister Preventer will create an invisible barrier between your skin and the shoe/sandal. PS… this can also be used in other areas, like a scratchy sequin top or wearing shorts that cause chaffing! Likewise, if you are going to be hiking or on your feet for long periods of time, you may want the Foot Petals ¾ Orthotic Insole, which will provide the right amount of comfort and support for your feet.
4. BRING VERSATILE OPTIONS
Vacation often has us doing a wide range of activities, such as hiking, relaxing at the beach, and going out to fancy dinners. The few shoe options that you bring with you need to be able to work for more than one occasion. This can be a pair of simple, stylish tennis shoes that match everything or a pair of strappy sandals that can be casual but also dressed up with the right clothes!
