The Best Shoes For Your Next Vacation

Tips for choosing the right shoes for your travel needs

When packing for your next vacation, you have a lot to remember—clothes, toothbrush—but what about shoes? Your travel destination will dictate what kind of footwear you will need, as well as the kind of holiday activities you plan to do.

Will you be going for a beach vacation, or have a holiday in the mountains? Perhaps having a romantic vacation in a city, or maybe going on a desert safari? Each of these vacations will require different type of footwear to choose and bring along.

If you are going on a mountain holiday, most likely the only shoes you will need to bring along would be tough hiking boots, in addition to your dress shoes for the plane.

Choosing the right shoes

So, how do you know what shoes to choose and pack in your suitcase, before you take off on your vacation? Here are some tips.

First of all, think about all of the different parts of your trip and planned activities. If you’ll be kicking off your sandals at the beach but heading to the city later in your travels, you’ll need sturdy walking shoes that won’t have you dragging by the end of the day. If you are likely to be doing any outdoor activities, you need to consider the most appropriate footwear, such as hiking boots or water shoes.

Travelers should also keep in mind the versatility of their shoes if worried about luggage space. Are there supportive shoes you can stomp around in all day that are appropriate for heading to dinner at night? Make sure you can wear each pair of shoes during multiple days or activities of your trip to save space in your suitcase.

Consider the weather

You also want to consider the weather where you’re traveling. Your everyday shoes might seem perfect for day to day activities, but what happens if it rains? Can they withstand the water, or do you need a pair of rain boots? Make sure to check the forecast at your travel destination before you leave.

Your planned accommodations also require you to consider footwear. Staying in a hostel? Don’t forget to pack a pair of shower shoes.

Lastly, it’s important to consider the shoes you wear on the plane. You’ll want a comfortable fit that you feel okay wearing for hours in airport terminals and throughout long flights. Travelers should shy away from tight or uncomfortable shoes.

and holiday activities, so choose the best shoes for your vacation to protect your feet.

Be mindful of the airport security

This is especially important in the light of increasing airport security. At many, if not most airports, you might be asked to take your shoes off while going through security checkpoints. The easier is to take yor shoes off and put them on again, the less hassle for your and the airport security staff.

If going through this list makes you panic at all your potential shoe needs, don’t worry. When considering what footwear is best for your upcoming trip, a great place to look is Aldo. At Aldo, you can find versatile, stylish shoes for any traveling needs, and with their partnership with Groupon Coupons, you’ll be sure to find the best deals, so shoes are one less thing to worry about as you plan for your trip.
