The Best Shoes for Travel-Flats to Keep You Stylish and Comfortable on the Go
As a frequent traveler one of the most important decisions when packing is what shoes to bring. Dress them up or go casual; flats are lightweight, versatile and always have a place in my suitcase but finding a comfortable pair can be a bit tricky. I’ve done the legwork and rounded up some of my favorite flats for you guys and because there is no single best shoe for every foot I’ve included a mix of shoes that offer great arch support, cloud-like cushioning or a minimal profile. Whether your travels include exploring the cobblestone streets of Rome,sailing off the coast of Cape Cod or wine tasting in California you’ll need walking shoes that are comfortable and look good. These stylish yet comfy flats are no doubt some of the best shoes for travel.
