Packing for any vacation will almost certainly involve quite a bit of time spent planning outfits. Any traveler worth their salt wants to be able to combine practicality, comfort, and style while on vacation, so making sure you pack the right clothes is essential.
But even more important than clothes is what shoes to pack.
Shoes can make or break a vacation. Not only are they the finishing touch to your outfit, but they will be the things that define whether you are truly comfortable day in, day out. Almost every vacation involves a decent amount of walking, and sore feet at the end of a day can ruin an otherwise awesome experience. And even if you are doing nothing more than laying on a beach and paddling in the sea, having the right sandals, flip-flops, or jelly shoes is vital.
So if you are heading off to cultural, historic Europe this summer, home to some of the best cruise destinations, make sure you pack the right footwear to ensure an enjoyable experience! Here are some of the best shoes to pack for your European vacation.
Folding flats are a brilliant choice for a European vacation. They are the perfect combination between style and convenience, offering a smart-casual look for day or night and folding up tight in your bag so you aren’t wasting any room!
A comfortable pair of sneakers is a must for any vacation, whether exploring the cultural highlights of Europe or having new adventures at home. Walking through cobbled streets and wandering around museums and historic attractions during the day can be tough on your feet, and sneakers will help avoid tired toes at the end of the day. Go for slip-ons to make it that little bit easier when you go through customs!
Chances are you’ll get some warm weather at some point during your summer vacation, in which case you’ll need a pair of sandals. Get something with enough support, flex, and cushioning, and you won’t have to compromise between keeping cool and walking comfortably!
Europe is full of exciting, interesting, challenging landscapes, and a great European vacation wouldn’t be complete without a little off-road exploration. While they might take up room in your luggage, a decent pair of hiking boots will really put the finishing touches on your trip and allow you to take on anything the summer throws at you!
