Build your travel capsule from the footwear up so you don’t compromise on comfort and outfit styling. Don’t pack new shoes without road-testing them first. Pack backup shoes in case something happens to your shoes or feet along the way. 

Footwear Travel Tips

If possible, travel in comfortable sneakers or boots, or easy slip-ons. If you need to save space and weight in your luggage, wear the bulkiest pair of shoes you are taking and remove them in the plane, bus, train or car to feel more comfortable.

Fill the shoes you pack with smaller items like socks to save space. Shoe bags will help other packed items stay clean. Pack dressy shoes for the dressy outfit. Broken-in shoes are best because happy feet will increase the enjoyment of your trip.
