How do you pack your travel shoes when you’re headed on holiday? How do you choose which ones are right for your destination? And how can you save valuable luggage space when you pack your travel shoes?

Yes, packing shoes and boots can be a complete nightmare because they are often awkward sizes and shapes, and many travelers complain that their footwear is taking up too much of their precious luggage space and making their bags ridiculously heavy! That may be true in some cases, but not if you follow a few simple steps and pack your travel shoes in the correct way.




When you pack your travel shoes always lay them on their side whenever possible and place your shoes and boots heel to toe, this will save you a lot of space. You can stuff rolled up pants and t-shirts inside your shoes to better utilize the space.

Think we’re joking? Try it: Put A Buda Mesh Top and pants in one tennis shoe and a skinny tank top and another pair of pants in another shoe.


Keep them in pairs:
When you pack your travel shoes always keep the pairs together. This will save you a whole lot of time during your travels because you won’t have to dig around in your suitcase for a missing shoe.  And if you’ve planned ahead, then make things even simpler for yourself and keep each pair of your shoes in a large resealable bag.


Limit your options:
Almost every woman adores her shoes and it’s tough only picking out a few pairs for your travels, when we desperately want to take our entire collection with us! Usually, around 3-4 pairs of shoes work best when traveling. And try to opt for lightweight shoes, to avoid weighing down your bags.


In general, your shoe options should depend on your the destination and the climate. However, as an example of what shoes to pack the recommended options are: a pair of sandals, a pair of tennis shoes (or any athletic inspired footwear which is a major trend this season), and a pair of wedges or evening shoes. This should be enough to last you the duration of your travels. If you’re headed to a colder climate, then you could always alternate your sandals for a pair of boots.


Enjoy your trip!
