The Best Shoes for Traveling

Published on September 4th, 2018

Going on vacation is always an exciting time. You get to explore a new part of the world while enjoying the company of friends or family. When you are packing for your vacation, be sure to bring the proper clothing that will keep you comfortable while you are on your trip. However, one important aspect of packing that many people don’t think about is what shoes to bring. Here are some factors to consider that will help you choose what shoes to pack on your trip.

What Activities Will You Be Doing?

If you are going somewhere that is known for many adventurous activities such as hiking or exploring, you’ll want to pack at least one pair of supportive, comfortable shoes that have good grip and are protective. This way, you’ll be able to confidently experience any terrain that your vacation has to offer.

What is the Weather Like?

Going to a warm destination is often ideal, but is there a chance of rain? If you are wearing protective shoes and they unexpectedly get wet, make sure to remove the insoles or orthotics to let your shoes completely dry out before you wear them again. If you wear shoes that are wet, they could become a breeding ground for warts or other fungus to develop.

Last, But Not Least…

Don’t forget to wear sunscreen! This is especially important to put on your feet, as they may not often be exposed to the sun’s damaging rays. Make sure to reapply as necessary, as sunscreen may wash off while you’re in the water.
