Finding the best sandal to travel with may not be the easiest task, and you may need more than one pair.
The options will depend largely on your comfort needs, most importantly, and then on our trip plans and personal style.
Sandals for Traveling What to Consider
Before you can go out and choose some sandals for your summer travels, you need to ask yourself these questions;
- What Will The Weather Be Like? – Opting for a sandal means that the area you are visiting generally has mostly warm and sunny weather, which is important to make sure of; otherwise, a sandal may not be the best choice.
- What Occasions Will Your Be Attending? – If you only go on casual excursions, you can go for informal sandal types. For formal events, you will need something dressy with a heel. A flip flop is ideal for beachwear and hiking in the great outdoors, a sports-type hiking sandal.
- What Area Are You Going to be Visiting? – Outdoor and hiking or nature areas require a much more durable and supportive sandal type with a tread designed for outdoor trails. Whereas for indoors and cities, a more fashionable styled comfortable sandal should work.
- What are The Walking Surfaces Like? – The walking surfaces can affect your choice of sandals. As mentioned, for outdoor and trails, you will need a trail-specific outsole. Simultaneously, a durable and well-cushioned sole is necessary for shock absorbency for hard surfaces and city or urban areas. For uneven and rocky surfaces or slippery surfaces, you may require more lug soles and stability features.
- What is Your Style? – Last but not least, you need to stay true to your fashion sense and style and select something that you can wear even after your travels are down.
Types of Sandals You May Need for Traveling
- Dress Sandals – Dress sandals are ideal for an evening out or for more formal occasions. A dress sandal has a more elegant style and usually a slight heel or a wedge heel if you are looking for something comfortable.
- Beach Sandals – For excursions to the beach or poolside, you will need a pair of comfortable and slip-resistant flip flop sandals for those wet surfaces.
- Walking Sandals – Depending on where you are walking, as I have mentioned, a sporty trail walking sandal for outdoors. You can consider an in-between formal and casual sandal for visiting the town and daily excursions, with plenty of shock-absorbing cushioning and a comfortable fit.
- Leisure Sandals – These need to be comfortable and do not need to be appealing; you can use them for wearing at your hotel room or on flights to give your feet a rest.

- Outsole – A durable and robust rubber outsole that offers good traction.
- Cushioning and Support – Shock absorbing midsole and cushioning. A comfortable and cushioned footbed.
