A good travel shoe is like a good travel buddy: they’re hard to find but when you spot a good one, you hold on to them for dear life. Here are my current favorites for all weather types!
Converse Slip-Ons – These Shoreline Sneaker slip-ons are my everything right now and probably forever. When the Oyster Gray color fades into darkness, I’ll just have to buy another sparkly pair. No shoestrings to tie, no problems.
Eileen Fisher Platforms – Whoa. Whoa. WHOA. Everyone needs to put these babies on hold and hide yo kids, hide yo husband, because you need to go buy these today. They are neck and neck with Converse as my favorite shoes of the moment and are perfect for a romp around the globe this spring/summer.
Printed Vans – Because who the hell doesn’t love a Disney Princess design?! HUH? Vans has sold some crazy fun prints in their day including pizzas and donuts, just to name a few. Here are some really cool ice cream kicks that’ll get your sweet tooth talking.
Teva Float Sandals – I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used these Tevas on trips when I didn’t think I ever would. I’ve thrown them in my suitcase last minute because they weight like .5 pounds, and I’ve been glad each and every time.
Steve Madden Flats – These classics are fashionable and functional, and you really can’t beat that.
Nike Frees – Do I even need to sell these? They are as popular as Trump’s hate tweets. You’ll see ‘em daily.
Cougar Winter Boots – These shoes just make me wanna say rarrrrr. I don’t know. There’s something about them that I just love. Maybe it’s the waterproof feature. Maybe it’s the mountain woman vibes I get when looking in the mirror. Whatever it is, it’s pure magic.
Sorel Wedge Boots – So you want to be sexy but you don’t want to wear heels. Same. Been there, like every day. Sorel to the rescue! These wedged boots are much cuter on than off. I passed by them in a store a few weeks ago when a (really great) saleswoman talked me into trying them. Off to the register they went.
Faux Fur Trim Duck Boots – Tory Burch is my girl. She gets it right pretty much all the time. These boots and I go way back, and because they are so durable and functional, they’ve stood the test of time. They are now sold out, but here are some similar fur trim duck boots I also love.
Merrell Waterproof Hiking Boots – I have a massive love affair with my Merrells. They’ve hiked Patagonia peaks with me, they’ve seen five straight days of Peruvian mountains, and never once have they failed me. Even that one time when I fell into a river in Argentina. I genuinely hope they live forever.
Stuart Weitzman 5050 Over-The-Knee Boots – When you gotta dress up and can forgo a heel, these feisty babies will turn heads. Many, many heads. Over-the-knee boots just do that, and Stuart Weitzman can stop an entire room.
