After all of your year’s hard work, it’s time to reward yourself with a vacation. You’ve planned your itinerary, booked your flights, packed your bags, and left nothing to chance—including your choice of vacation shoes.
The right travel shoes provide comfort and style, whether you’re exploring the backwoods of your hometown, taking in a Broadway show, or spending the day sightseeing. If you’re wondering what to wear on vacation, we’re here for you! We’re sharing our picks of shoes to keep your feet supported throughout your travels.
Hitting the Beach
If sand and surf are your thing, you’ll probably spend most of your vacation wearing slip on sandals or flip flops. Both styles of footwear can be quickly kicked off for a refreshing dip in the ocean. Be sure to look for sandals that provide adequate support for your feet while you’re walking on soft, sandy beaches.
