One of the most important items to pack when you’re traveling are SHOES! When you’re traveling, you’ll be on your feet all day, especially if you’re a budget traveler like me. I literally walk EVERYWHERE because it saves me money on transportation costs and in my opinion, walking is the best way to really get to know a city. So what’s my favorite pair of shoes to wear while exploring a city?
These comfy and cute sneakers!
I love exploring cute “old towns” with pretty Instagrammable cobblestone streets, but when I’m walking on cobblestones all day, hiking up endless steps, or trying to make sure I don’t slip on marble floors, it’s important to have on the right shoes. “Comfortable and functional shoes? But I want to look cute in my photos!” Many may proclaim… well you still can! With these cute sneakers from Taos, you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. These sneakers have Curves & Pods® premium removable footbed found inside, which deliver ultimate arch and metatarsal support. This pair also has a thicker and higher platform which I found provided extra protection for my feet when walking on cobblestone. I’m able to wear them all day, walking everywhere, and my feet weren’t screaming at me after my 10 hour day of exploring (and getting lost).
If you’re wearing the same shoes all day and everyday during your trip, you’re probably thinking about how bad your feet will smell right? More good news! Taos sneakers have protection against odor and staining. The footbed lining is treated with an antimicrobial shield for lasting protection against odor, staining and deterioration so that your shoes stay fresh. You can take them off at the end of the day and not worry about filling up your hostel room with the smell of your feet. Your roommates will thank you. Plus their classic style matches with any outfit — very important if you pack a light carry-on like I do. I decided to go with white since white practically matches with all of my outfits. Although white shoes are known to get dirty faster, I found these very easy to clean. I used a damp cloth to wipe off some dirt spots and the shoes were as good as new again.
I loved my first pair of Taos sneakers so much that I got a second pair and they were just as comfy and cute!
Taos sneakers are made for all-day wear and an excellent option for traveling and being on your feet throughout the day. They’re comfortable, cute, protect against odors, and easy to clean — definitely the perfect travel shoes! They’re available in a variety of styles, colors, widths and sizes – there’s a Taos sneaker for every woman! 🙂
