The worst shoes for travel

When travelling, it’s important to pack light and right, but it’s easy to get it wrong. From thongs to ballet flats and even your trusted Converse, there can be serious consequences and a lot of uncomfortable mornings if you don’t pack right for your feet. Here’s a list of the five worst travel shoes (and their better replacement).

These are everyone’s go-to holiday shoes. They’re easy, cheap and save space in your luggage.

    For me, sneakers are the best shoes for travel. And not only for travel, for everyday use. Since I go to work on foot (I work as an editor at coursework writing service if you are interested), this is the best shoes for me.

    I find that no matter what shoes I take, the only ones I ever actually wear are my thongs.
    Same goes for when I am at home.
