According to my fitness tracker, I walk around 18-20k steps a day when I travel! That’s 5x more than my count when I’m at home (designer life!) and so it’s a real must to wear only the comfiest shoes for travel.
After a really long search (and trust me, I really searched!) here are the two best pairs I’ve ever used! These are my all-time favorite travel shoes and I swear by these! When you try them for yourself you’ll understand why I rave about them!
My favorite travel shoes are two Skechers pairs: Skechers On-The-Go and Skechers Go Walk 3. I’ve had the On-The-Go for a year now and the Go Walk for a month (in time for my Taiwan trip)
Aside from being the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever tried (not even exaggerating here), they are also both surprisingly extremely light! I used to bring only one pair when I travel but on my last two trips, I brought both pairs because they hardly weigh anything!
I know I’ve said comfy a hundred times already but I don’t know how else to describe it in different words! They are just really, really comfortable! No-fuss, simple and lightweight.
They look like boat shoes, right? Which makes it perfect when you’re wearing shorts, although I’ve worn it multiple times with a dress. Because they look so low-key, I wear these even on regular days here in Manila (especially when I’m doing mom-errands!)
Since its main body is made of canvas, once it gets dirty, you have to wash it. But during trips, I don’t really clean it anymore because dirt seems to just camouflage since the design has thin light brown stripes.
Skechers Go Walk 3
Compared to my On-The-Go, the cushioning on these are way better (which is why I mentioned on my Instagram that it felt like I was walking on clouds!) And no wonder, because according to the product description online, they boast about its “GOga Mat Technology with high-rebound cushioning”
At the time of writing this article, I’ve worn it in Taiwan and Hong Kong and it was perfect all the way; no blisters, no band-aids and that’s considering we walked around 18,000 steps per day! Also, I’ve worn it both with and without socks and I’ve had no problems at all.
They look chunkier than my On-The-Go’s but it’s a cute kind of chunky that I like! They still match great with my short dresses, which is perfect because I love wearing dresses!
The first time Mor saw this pair, his first comment was “You got it in white? How are you gonna clean that?!” So I showed him the tag which says that it’s Scotchguard protected! Yay! I still got a bit worried though after it got really dirty in Taiwan (since I wore it to Yehliu, where it was sandy and dusty) but no kidding, it looked good as new after I cleaned it when I got home!
Ever since I discovered these, I’m like a crazy Skechers fanatic that I’ve recommended it to my friends (seriously, ask all the friends I’ve traveled with!), my husband and even my mom-in-law! Look, I’m even writing an entire blog post about it just to express my love! Haha.
Suffice to say, I highly recommend getting a pair of Skechers for travel. I’m actually thinking of getting another one in a different style. Now if only they had boots for winter. I’m still on the look out for the perfect pair of travel boots!
