Whether it’s hobbling around the romantic cobblestone streets of a foreign city covered in blisters or spending 15 minutes apologizing for bottle-necking the security line by wearing lace-up shoes, your travel footwear choices matter.

When it comes to travel, ideal footwear has to cross off so many boxes that the right pair becomes nothing short of miraculous. A good travel shoe is breathable, packable, comfortable, versatile, and, preferably, inexpensive.
