Shopping for the perfect travel shoe is sort of like shopping for a mattress. Everyone has different bodies, different preferences and finding the right balance for all is nearly impossible. However, one thing is for certain: it’s not just about being functional, but being stylish, durable and able to match with multiple types of outfits. A lot travel shoes about about function over fashion. I don’t believe you have to make that choice. There are plenty of options that are fashionable, yet serve a purpose.
Tip: regardless of which shoes you choose, make sure they’re broken in. You do not want to wear a pair of shoes on your travels that you haven’t been walking in for at least one month.
Flats are a great option for spring, but finding a good flat with arch support can be a challenge. Dr. Scholl’s makes a great ballet flat in assorted colors. The flat has a bit of a heal which is great for walking longer distances and has a memory foam insole for comfort. D’orsay flats, like these, are also a great shoe for travel because they can be dressed up or dressed down.
