Choosing The Right Shoes To Travel With

Choosing The Right Shoes To Travel With

When it comes to all of life’s problems, choosing which shoes to take with you on a short adventure is one of the most important! Okay, maybe not one of the most important, but you get the idea! It’s a tough decision to make!

To help you out, below are some tips on which shoes to choose for your destination to make sure you have what you need without wasting valuable baggage space.

Heading to the Tropics

It’s fair to assume that the majority of your activities in a tropic based climate will be hiking. Why? Because tropical climates often come with a number of rainforests just waiting to be explored!

With this in mind, stick to the following:

  • A good quality pair of waterproof hiking boots
  • A pair of good-quality sneakers
  • A pair of sandals

It’s important that your hiking boots are waterproof to keep your feet dry as you explore and equally as important that your sneakers are also high-quality. If your sneakers have seen better days, visit the Groupon Coupons page for Nordstrom before you leave and get some new ones with a good grip on the bottom.

Sandals make the list because there will be times when you don’t want to wear your boots but also when it is too wet to wear sneakers.


If you are lucky enough to be visiting the snow this season then you are in for quite an adventure! Be sure that you have the right footwear packed in your suitcase by keeping to the following:

  • Hiking Boots (waterproof if possible)
  • Sneakers
  • Dress Shoes

While it can seem strange to take dress shoes to the snow, it’s worth remembering that there aren’t many hours of sunlight during the snow season and particularly in the areas which attract a lot of snow, meaning that the majority of your time will be spent socializing. And given that the snowfields are often surrounded by privately owned resort towns it’s a fair bet that you will need to look neat and tidy to enjoy their amenities.

Love the Rain?

There are some people who just love the rain and then there are others who, while they don’t particularly enjoy it, realize that there are a number of adventures you can only have in places with wet weather.

Keep the following when packing your shoes:

  • Good-quality waterproof hiking books
  • A good-quality pair of sneakers

If you are wondering what other footwear to pack, the answer is none! Why? Because apart from the above two, anything else is just going to get so wet that you can’t wear it again. As for flip-flops and sandals, they are just going to get you into trouble slipping over in the rain!

If you are heading away for a short adventure then it can be difficult to know which shoes to pack. Stick with the above lists and you can be sure that you will have everything you need once you reach your travel destination.
