As long as they’re not croc’s, you’ll be fine. Kidding but not really. Comfortable shoes to travel in make or break your trip.
Ya didn’t hear it here first but i’m going to mention these absolute godsends once again. They are on the more of a pricey purchase but they last forever, are so good for our feet and postures and are sustainable(don’t have to purchase rubber thongs every 6 months… or worry about blow outs for that matter). They’re pleasant on our lowest limbs that do ever so much for us aka carry us across the world and can wear with any outfit. WIN WIN WIN.
- Don’t take shoes you won’t actually use
Be realistic with your shoe packing. Shoes are generally bulky and awkward sized items to pack not to mention TAKE US ALOT OF ROOM! I once took hiking boots tied onto my backpack while travelling for 1 month and only used them ONCE- what a pain in the arse they were to carry around. Note to self: never do that again. If anything like winter boots, hiking boots, water shoes are needed on your travels you could always hire!
- Comfortable socks and bandaids
Splash a bit more cash on socks/double sock if you are doing intense walking on your travels. Bandaid’s can most likely be bought anywhere in the world but good to have on hand if you ever feel blisters approaching!
- A decent pair of workout shoes
Money well spent, always. These will keep you active on your trip at the same time as keeping your feet happy. Brands I like are Sketchers, Asics and Nike. (Also Converse if they count). If you’re in Australia- buy these brands anywhere else lol, they’ll be cheaper.
- A pair of something cheap to shower in
If you’re hostelling, you’ll most likely want to keep something on your feet while you shower… just in case. Cough, hygiene. This is something you could purchase while you’re away or take with you.
