You Can’t Bring a Suitcase Full of Shoes on Your Vacation! What Are You Going to Do?!

With flight prices getting lower and lower, airlines are cutting out more and more services, either charging a premium to access them or not offering them at all. One of the services which used to be expected but one which has now become a luxury is checked baggage. In fact, there are many airlines who offer cheap tickets with the provision that you can’t even pay extra to take your luggage on board!


When you hear this news you are probably thinking that you can never go on a vacation again because you can’t take your entire shoe collection with you! However, I am here to tell you that despite your love for shoes, there is a way. You just need to know which shoes to pack for the type of destination you are traveling to.


Taking Advantage of the Low Season?

Many of the travel deals that you will see come across your inbox are for travel dates outside of the regular peak period for the destination. This often means that you can expect to see less sun and to experience more rain. However, this isn’t to say that you can’t enjoy an awesome adventure in the rain! When you are considering your shoes, here is what we suggest:


  • A good pair of hiking boots (waterproof)
  • A pair of sneakers
  • A pair of dress shoes
  • A pair of flip-flops


While it may seem strange, you will see dress shoes on each list in this article because it is also advisable to travel with one pair of dress shoes and an accompanying outfit.


Into the Tropics!

Tropical countries and hiking through jungles are synonymous. And with good reason; it’s an amazing experience! However, it can also prove to be a dangerous and painful one if you don’t pack the right shoes. We recommend:


  • A pair of good quality hiking boots (again, waterproof)
  • A pair of sneakers
  • A pair of dress shoes


Did you notice that flip-flops aren’t on the list? The reason for this is that they can be dangerous in tropical environments because of the constant moisture and algae on the ground as you walk. As for the hiking boots, it is important that they are good quality sot hat they don’t break under pressure. If yours have seen better days, grab a new pair from the Groupon Coupons page for Clarks before you head off on your adventure.


Get Ready to Fall Over!

If you are lucky enough to be heading to the snow then it is obvious that you will be packing your snowboard boots. However, with limited day light, much of your time will be spent away from the slopes. With this in mind, we recommend:


  • Snow Boots (regular shoes with snow grip on the bottom)
  • Good quality sneakers
  • Dress shoes


The reason why your sneakers need to be good quality is that they will be exposed to low temperatures, which can often cause damage to lower quality sneakers which use plastic, as it can crack when exposed to constant cold temperatures along with ice and water.


There you go! Your worries are unfounded! The tips in this article can help you to pack the right shoes for the adventure and still leave you with enough room to pack your clothes and accessories.
