In theory, you'd bring shoes that are suitable to the purpose of your trip and your destination. For example, let's say that if you're going for a business trip you're going to pack a pair of formal shoes. But let's say you're going to a foreign city for a vacay (because if you're going to a beach, then all you need is flip-flops and one pair of shoes for the airport). That said, we believe that when you travel for leisure, you only need to bring three pairs of shoes — one of them you're supposed to wear already at the start of your journey to save some luggage space.
They say the best way to explore a city is by travelling on foot. So you better pack these comfy yet stylish type of shoes.
Ballerina, slip-ons, oxfords and many more — the choice is yours. With these flats, you'll go a long way exploring a foreign city. Pick something with a neutral colour or anything that would match most of the clothes that you packed. The greatest thing about packing flats for your trip is that they won't take so much space. There are even foldable flats, which would be a big help if you're really low on luggage space.
Don't pack your sneakers; you should already wear them when going to your destination. We all know that it's essential to bring a pair during trips as they are not only the most comfortable walking shoes but they're also the most durable. You can really get down and dirty in visiting must-see but not-so-fab corners of the city since these shoes are fairly easier to clean without damaging the design (as opposed to, say, leather shoes).
