Winter getaways are more than just a break from the cold and damp, they’re a chance to renew yourself. While planning your holiday, one thing that you should consider is the type of activity you’ll be pursuing and the type of footwear you need to do it safely and comfortably. Here are some tips to help you choose the right shoe for your winter getaway:
Ready for Adventure
If you’re an adventurous traveler, you need shoes that can go wherever you want to go, and do whatever you want to do. Keen, Columbia, and Merrell hiking shoes offer comfort for long hikes on the trail, good grip for rough terrain, and can even handle a day on the beach. These brands are built with quick-drying materials which makes them perfect for exploring damp terrain and enjoying activities by (or in) the water.
Almost every vacation destination offers a walking tour — but walking tours aren’t much fun if your feet get sore. That’s why we recommend Rockport, Ecco, or Clarks shoes for a day filled with walking. These brands are lightweight and offer lots of support to keep you comfortable all day long. Best of all, these shoes are on trend, so you can wear them out at night for dinner, to the theatre, or even dancing!
Relaxing on the Beach
If you’re headed to a sunny place, where there is sand and maybe a bit of surf (or at least some lounging), you can’t go wrong with a pair of Birkenstock or Mephisto sandals. They’re light, compact, stylish, and super comfortable for all your sun-loving needs and great for walking about town and daytripping. If you like a bit footwear that’s a bit more water-friendly, and want easy-wearing comfort for the whole family, Crocs are also a fun choice — and they are really lightweight and easy to pack!
