There’s nothing I love more than helping my friends and followers discover their next adventures through travel advice and my travel guides. Perhaps one of the most frequently asked questions I receive is about travel shoes, so I thought it was high-time to dedicate a post to the best walking shoes for traveling. Particularly if you’re traveling abroad in Europe or just plan on doing a walking tour stateside, you can’t afford to have uncomfortable shoes get in the way of your once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences.
Most of the time when you travel abroad, you’re heading out for the day to explore the sites, pop into shops and grab a bite to eat all in one swoop. You don’t really have the luxury of heading home for a quick outfit change, so your shoes definitely need to be versatile and stylish. And let’s face it, you really do not want be the nerdy tourist wearing your “walking” gym shoes to a nice restaurant for dinner. Bleh.
For traveling abroad, I always recommend booties, boots or comfortable sandals depending on the season. In my opinion, booties tend to be the most versatile because they look adorable with summer dresses or with leggings and sweaters. Recently, SAS Shoes reached out to me about trying out some of their shoes. SAS is particularly known for their exceptional quality and comfort, and they have recently launched some stylish options making them one of my go-to brands for traveling.
Since I just professed my love for booties while traveling, it should be no surprise I selected the suede Dylan Bootie in both colors, black and sand. The Dylan bootie is made with real Italian suede, and has a padded insole making it the perfect option for getting lost in the far-corners of your favorite city.
SAS Shoes is truly dedicated to ensuring the best fit so you can have the best experiences. Some of their shoes tend to look a little like comfort is their first priority, but in my opinion, you can’t beat the style and comfort of the Dylan bootie. The Luxe Loafer and the Simone Sandal are also two other favorites.
Thank you to SAS Shoes for gifting these booties to me for consideration. All opinions expressed are explicitly my own.
