I’ve broken down this list into a few different categories – flip-flops and sandals, walking shoes, hiking/trekking shoes, and hiking boots – with several different suggestions for each type, to help you find the right shoes for traveling.
Flip-flops and Sandals
A good pair of flip-flops or sandals generally make the best travel shoes for most trips. They’re casual and work well with most outfits, for those who are concerned with staying stylish on the road. However, it’s usually not a good idea to take those $3 flip-flops from Old Navy that you live in during the summer. Wherever you travel, you will probably be walking and on your feet for a good portion of the day, which is why finding a high-quality pair of flip-flops or sandals for travel is essential.
KEEN Newport H2 Sandal
The Keen Newport H2 is the best travel shoes for both men and women who plan on doing a significant amount of walking and even minimal hiking. They offer a cushioned bottom with extra traction, making them an excellent option if you plan on doing minor hiking to waterfalls or other bodies of water.
