What SHOES TO WEAR ON HOLIDAY
Summer is right around the corner and your long-awaited holiday suddenly feels so much closer. You’ve got your passport and the travel guides ready, but the biggest question of all still remains – what shoes to wear on holiday? We’re here to make your summer shoe shopping a breeze, as we have picked a few of our favourite styles from the summer collection. Whether you are going on a beach holiday, a city break or a staycation – we’ve got you covered!
Best Shoes For a Beach Holiday
SUN, SEA & SAND
Shopping for beach holiday shoes should be easy, right? Well, I find it hard as I want to fill my suitcase with every type of summer shoe from heeled sandals for nights out to walking sandals for all the exploring and then, of course, comfy flat sandals for lazy days.
If we are being sensible and opting for one pair of sandals then the top choice has to be Rieker women’s sandals. Rieker sandals are super comfy with Antistress cushioning underfoot but they are stylish and look great with any summer outfit.
Some may prefer to keep their toes hidden and women’s closed-toe sandals are a great way of having a summer style without showing your toes.
The Best Shoe for a City Break
WANDERLUST & CITY DUST
Ok, so I know not everyone is a fan of beach holidays. All the sand, everyone just lazing about by the beach or the pool, seawater ruining your hair (I’m running out of cons for a beach holiday…) Another popular choice is the city break. There are budget airlines that take you to places like Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Budapest, Barcelona, to name just a few popular places.
But, what holiday shoes are you going to pack for a city break? Well, you know there is going to be lots of walking involved, whichever place you choose to go to, there are miles and miles of streets and attractions to explore. So, we need to find shoes which are extremely comfortable, for all sorts of uses and that will look good with various outfits… challenge accepted!
For something such as a city break, I don’t think you need to look any further than a pair of Skechers women’s shoes, in particular the Skechers Go Walk 6 range with their spongy, bouncy cushioned footbeds. The Skechers Go Walk 6’s are also incredibly lightweight so won’t push your baggage allowance over too much!
The best Staycation Holiday shoes
READY SET STAY
Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean that you must venture abroad. There are lots of stunning locations here in the UK to visit and we always recommend our home town, Inverness, as a great place to start.
What kind of shoes or sandals should you buy for a staycation? The freedom of a holidays means you are free to meander the streets of a local village, take in some historic sites or if you’re really brave you can head down to the beach. The weather in the UK has got to be a major consideration and footwear for all weather and all activities is what we recommend.
the best Walking Holiday SHOES
HIKE MORE, WORRY LESS
I’m going to cheat a little bit here as there are two options for walking holiday shoes. Walking trainers or walking sandals are the best depending on what kind of walking you plan to do. If you are planning to hike in the UK, then you would definitely need a pair of walking shoes.
Or if you plan to do a summer walking holiday abroad, then some Womens Walking Sandals would be a better choice.
