Fashion Meets Function: The Traveler's Guide to Stylish Footwear

It’s almost travel season! Along with it are the pre-trip plans and trying to figure out what to pack. When packing, suitable footwear is one of the first things to fall through the cracks. Those five-year-old $10 flip-flops have been near the end of their life for the past two years. You can definitely do better than that, both for fashion and functionality. Or maybe you are on the opposite side of the spectrum, and you have so many pairs of shoes that you can’t figure out which ones you need to bring. With high-quality, versatile options, you can hopefully narrow down how many pairs of shoes you try to fit into your suitcase.

What shoes do you really need for travel? The answer to that depends on where you are going and what you are planning to do! Here are a few of our favourite travel-friendly options that are comfortable, versatile, and stylish.


If you are going somewhere warm, a comfortable pair of sandals that can hold up to a day of sightseeing attractions is a must.

For a beach day, sightseeing, or any other day-to-day travel activities, check out the Tayo slide. It's a great option for a day of walking and works with so many outfits.

Our Hadyn Sandals are an excellent option if you need something more dressy. They are stylish, good quality, and small enough that they don’t take up much suitcase space - what is there not to love? The Westerlies Sandal is also ideal if you are looking for something effortlessly stylish but no less practical for daily wear.

Formal Options

If you find yourself attending a more formal event during your vacation and require suitable footwear, opting for shoes that prioritize comfort is paramount. The Yama Sandals offer a perfect balance, providing both elegance for an evening out and comfort for prolonged wear. Moreover, their understated design lends versatility, effortlessly complementing various outfits throughout your trip.

Dressier/Warmer Shoes

Are you going to a cooler climate or need something a bit fancier? Try a pair of loafers, ballet flats, or even boots! Flats like the Fion or Jaslyn are stylish, practical, and go with almost anything. Dress them down with jeans and a cardigan, or pair them with a formal dress for a fancier look. These shoes work for so many occasions; they are the perfect go-to for travel.
