Traveling and keeping your feet comfy can be a challenge when you don't want to wear sneakers on your entire trip. Don't get me wrong, I love my sneakers but sometimes I want to wear cute sandals or a style that isn't so sporty. When I was younger, my feet were able to endure the abuse of wearing just about anything but now that my feet have matured, they gravitate a lot towards comfort. Below is a list of our favorite shoe brands that have kept our feet comfy and cute on our travels and at home.
We like supporting companies that create products that are ethically made so when we discovered Nisolo, we were happy to hear that their producers receive fair trade wages, healthcare, and work in a healthy working environment.
Not only do we support their ethics but even better that their styles are versatile, comfy, and effortlessly chic. All of these qualities make it super easy for us to style them with any outfit.
The Chelsea Boot is my year-round go-to booties. They are a classic style that can be matched with outfits for any season. The height of the heel is do-able for hours of walking and I especially like the pull-on tab. The struggles of putting on a boot without a shoe horn is not fun, so having that little tab really makes a difference. This is perfect especially if you are trying to minimize your shoe collection.
The Ecuador Huarache Sandal is a classic warm weather staple in many countries and cultures and are easy to match with a variety of styles. We were worried that the all-leather would be stiff, but that wasn't the case at all. The leather is soft and the heel is also lined with soft leather. They also take their customer feedback seriously and recently made several improvements to the Huarache Sandal for maximum comfort and fit.
If you are looking for a pair of shoes that feel like slippers, than Suavs is the perfect shoe for you. They are lightweight, flexible, and super comfy. You can easily match them with any outfit and they barely take up any space (or weight) in your luggage.
SUAVS is based out of Austin, Texas and the idea for their shoes came from the need for a comfortable, versatile, yet stylish shoe for everyday wear. All the materials are carefully handpicked to make sure they are the softest and safest for your feet while the design is kept clean and minimal. A clean and minimal design make it so much easier to match with different outfits, which is a huge plus if you are trying to pack light for your travels.
Every season Bearpaw launches new colors and designs that keep us coming back for more of their styles. They are made for comfort and we love anything that is both comfy and cute. They have styles for both Winter and Summer, so there are plenty of styles and options all year round.
We especially like to wear their Winter boots to Japan and recently wore their boots on our trip to Vancouver, Canada. We needed boots for the rainy days in Vancouver and Bearpaw's NeverWet technology kept our feet both warm and dry at all times.
Crystal has been wearing these shoes for years and it's pretty much her go-to footwear for all occasions. Crystal has had some difficulties with her right foot and these Mary Jane style sneakers have relieved a lot of the pain she was experiencing. The Skechers Breathe Easy shoe is a mix between casual and sporty with a ton of features to keep your foot comfy. Great features like a memory foam cushioned insole, a soft fabric shoe lining, and a shock absorbing midsole to name a few.
Seychelles caught our attention when we spotted one of their adorable kitty inspired sandals on instagram. We tend to worry that cute designs come at a cost of not being comfy.
Luckily, Seychelles is not the case. We wore Seychelles all day when we explored a huge indoor and outdoor museum in Bentonville, Arkansas and our feet had no complaints. Sometimes strappy sandals have a way of rubbing your skin in all the wrong ways especially in the hot muggy summers but we didn't have any issues with our cute sandals.
We are always looking for new brands that bring both comfort and style to our travels. What are your go-to travel shoes?
