Why your shoes make the difference, so pay attention

by Royal Holiday

When we are packing for vacation, one important thing to keep always in mind is how comfortable we will feel during our trip. This is indeed one of the factors that make us consider more things, since we do not want our luggage to be too heavy. But at the same time, we want it to include all those things that we will really need when we arrive at our destination. And one of these things are shoes.

You will need shoes for many different activities in your trip, and it is therefore important that you plan accordingly. The pair of shoes that you wear at the airport, for example, is not the same pair that you would like to wear at that reception that they organized to welcome their visitors at the place where you will stay, or to walk the city and enjoy its attractions. The type of shoes that you may need in your trip will also vary depending on what time of the year you plan to travel. Summer shoes are completely different from summer shoes, and you must take this into consideration as well. The following tips can be helpful to you when you decide what pair of shoes might be more adequate for the different moments of your trip.

Choose your shoes in advance

If you had the time to plan different aspects of your trip in advance with some detail, then do not forget to include your shoes in your planning as well. Take your time to think about what kind of clothes you will be wearing during your trip, but also the sort of shoes that you will wear with them, so you not only look good, but also feel comfortable. To plan in advance will give you the chance to bring with you only those things that you really need, and in that way you will not include useless elements in your luggage. If you are going to the beach, for instance, you will not need those duck boots that you love so much. In that case, it will be much more useful to include some kind of shoes that helps your feet breathe. So, it is important that you think about the sort of activities that you will have in your trip, and choose in advance the type of shoes that you will bring according to them.

Pay attention to the weather

The best choice for shoes in your trip depends probably on the weather that you will be facing when you arrive at your destination. You do not need to wear only sneakers while on vacation. There more options for you to consider, but you have to take some time before your trip starts to go online, and check out if you are actually going to a warm place, or perhaps to a very cold one. Remember that seasons change differently in the different parts of the Earth. And so, summer in the Northern Hemisphere means winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa. You can have a really bad time trying to walk a city if you brought summer shoes when everybody is wearing their winter boots.

But I liked those…

You can be one those persons who really enjoy buying new shoes on the road. After all, that is both a good way to know another aspect of the place that you are visiting, and indeed a great opportunity to take with you a wonderful pair of shoes that nobody else will be able to find anywhere back home. If that is your case, the best thing for you to do when packing is not to stuff your suitcase with so many clothes and other things that the zipper can break at any moment when you try to close it. Pack only those things that you feel that are really essential for you during your trip, and when you get at your destination, buy those shoes that fit those clothes you chose at home better. However, do not forget to buy that new pair of shoes thinking about how comfortable they can be for you in your trip, but also about how well they will go with the clothes that you left in your closet.

Do not be too hursh on your shoes

When it comes to shoes, always remember that what you really need for your trip is to find some pairs of shoes that are comfortable, elegant, perhaps cute, and pack easily. You need very functional shoes that go with almost any possible outfit. You may consider options like sneakers, espadrilles, and sandals, which will be of great help during those exhausting moments when you find yourself dashing through an airport, or a train or a bus station, in order for you not to lose your next connection. These are prime shoes for long walks like these, not professional models. Do not judge them too hard.
