The Best Shoes For Travelling
When you’re on holiday, the last thing you want to worry about is painful feet.
When you’ve booked your flights, locked in your accommodation and you’re starting to dream of beachy sunsets or mountain views, you’ve only got one thing left to do: pack your bags.
The ideal travel suitcase contains a mix of multi-purpose items that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Pick a couple of colourful pieces and add a variety of basics: your favourite jeans, a classic white tee, a cosy cardigan and - of course - a pair of go-with-anything, ultra-comfy shoes.
When it comes to travel shoes, look for a pair that will keep you on your feet all day: you never know where your travels might take you - you’d hate to be caught out with a sore blister or aching arches halfway through your adventures.
Elements of the perfect travel shoe:
- Breathable materials
- Soft fabrics
- Designed for all-day wear
- Snug fit for support and stability
- Can be dressed up or down

Each and every one of our brands have been selected for their high-quality materials and construction, with a focus on both comfort and style.
Here are our top picks for travel-ready shoes:

Arcopedico shoes are constructed with comfort first: an anatomical footbed, their twin-arch support system and Techno-Elastic upper to keep you secure. Arcopedico’s slip-on flat shoes are the perfect travel companion. Our favourite travel shoes from Arcopedico are L58 and L14, with both styles coming in a range of striking colours and patterns. The anatomic footbeds help to distribute your body weight evenly through your feet, taking stress off your joints and enhancing stability - perfect for endless strolls along white sandy beaches.
