Travel Shoes: Cute, Comfortable, or BOTH?

When we are traveling, comfort is key.  Fashion plays second fiddle, much to any good fashionista’s chagrin.  Sensible footwear becomes a must when you anticipate walking around and sightseeing.  Nothing screams “TOURIST!” more than a concrete wipeout due to a heel too high.  And nothing will put a damper on a vacation more than raw, achy blisters.  Be smart here, ladies!

The good news is this: shoe designers know that this struggle is REAL, and have responded accordingly.  You need not go the route of clunky athletic shoes when traveling; there are some darling sandal options which will prove to be comfortable, blister-free, AND fashion-forward.  You can have it both ways!  Take a look, and happy trails.

All of these shoes provide some decent support, a comfortable, orthotically-approved sole, and a few have the added support of a back strap.  If you are not accustomed to wearing a back strap, avoid blisters and ensure a perfect fit with the aid of Boottique’s Strappy Strips (on sale now with the Boottique Summer Fling Sale).
