Best Travel Shoes for Women

Best Shoes for the Beach

When it comes to beach-ready flip-flops, there’s no brand better than Vionic! 

Vionic flip-flops aren’t the flimsy, uncomfortable sandals you may picture. Instead, Vionic takes the classic flip-flop design and improves it with built-in arch support, areas of cushioned comfort, and high-quality materials.

Our personal favorites are the Dillon and Bella, which each come in several gorgeous colors and fun patterns. However, you truly can’t go wrong with any Vionic sandal this summer!

Best Walking Shoes for Travel

When you’re planning a trip with lots of walking involved, you’ll want a shoe that won’t make your feet tired and sore at the end of the night. Whether you’re partial to a lifestyle sneaker or athletic shoe, we have plenty of recommendations!

One of our favorite brands of lifestyle sneakers is Remonte, which offers several standout options. Whether it’s the Julika’s trendy platform sole, the Kendra’s convenient side zipper, or the Liv’s cushioned comfort, this brand offers a unique flare to elevate your vacation style without sacrificing functionality.

When it comes to athletic shoes for everyday wear, you can’t go wrong with On Running. Their instantly-recognizable CloudTec® soles make every step feel lightweight and energized, perfect for all-day walking. On also features adaptive fits, which keep your feet snug and supported.

Best Women’s Hiking Shoes

If your idea of a great trip is hitting the great outdoors, then do we have the shoes for you!

For high-quality hiking shoes, we recommend Merrell year-round. Their hiking shoes and boots are crafted specifically for the trails, featuring elements like breathable mesh lining, odor control, and protective heel and toe caps.

Our current summer favorite is the Antora 3, which includes all of the above features plus cushioned FloatPro Foam™ pods in the heel and forefoot as well as Vibram® grip-enhancing traction in the soles.

Best Women’s Travel Sandals for Walking

When you want the breeze of open-toe shoes but the comfort of wearing sneakers, sandals made with cork footbeds are a great choice. Cork footbeds mold to the shape of your feet, providing support where you need it most, which makes it easy to walk in them all day long.

Our top three brands of cork-footbed sandals are Birkenstock, Mephisto, and Naot. Sandals from all three of these brands feature adjustable straps, a variety of fits (from thong to one-strap to multi-strap), and rich colors.

Best Men’s Sandals for Travel

When it comes to men’s sandals, the winner for decades has been the ECCO® Yucatan. This walking sandal fits in well on the trail, in the city, and beyond, and provides ultimate comfort while doing so.

The Yucatan boasts velcro straps for a 3-point adjustable fit, molded EVA footbed with soft microfiber cover, and a rugged rubber outsole for gripping terrain.

Best Men’s Shoe for Walking All Day

Depending on your style, you may want an athletic shoe or a casual sneaker when walking all day. Both types of shoes have comfortable and supportive options available!

For men’s athletic shoes, we recommend New Balance and HOKA as both the trendiest and highest-quality shoes on the market right now. New Balance is known for its Fresh Foam cushioning, ROLLBAR motion control technology, and over 100 years of experience creating popular footwear. Similarly, HOKA is known for its thick midsole cushioning, propulsive meta-rocker, and stability-improving Active Foot Frame. Both are great for spending all day on your feet. 

In the world of casual sneakers, Clarks has been a favorite for men for decades. This year, we especially love the Mapstone Trail shoe, which enjoys a lightweight rubber outsole, premium cushioning, and a carefully crafted nubuck upper with stichwork detailing

Best Men’s Hiking Shoes and Sandals

For the outdoor adventurer, the best travel shoes are ones that support and protect your feet no matter the weather or terrain. No brand does rain, snow, and shine quite like Keen!

Men’s outdoor sandals like Keen’s Newport and Arroyo are a great choice for hikes, the beach and more. Both are water resistant and quick-drying with a high-traction sole and bungee lace-up for all-day security.

Keen’s hiking shoes and boots are also excellent options year-round, including cushioning, ventilation, stability features, odor control, and more. The Circadia, Targhee, and more are customer favorites for a reason!
