Stylish Yet Comfortable Shoes For Your Vacay

Hi Meg,

Your European getaway sounds a-mah-zing! Beyond jealous!

You are so right, I am a platform-only girl…even when sightseeing. However, I have a few stylish yet comfortable ideas in mind for your upcoming vacay.

Walking Shoes

I might sound crazy but I promise you that both a low wedge and heel sandal—like Deena & Ozzy’s Colorblock Wedge— are two very comfortable options! If you are looking to complement your daytime attire, i.e. denim shorts and a casual button-up or lightweight cargo pants and your fave tee, Topshop’s Opal Low Wood Sandal and Jeffrey Campbell’s chunky Cork Heel are two summer-appropriate picks that will keep your feet pain-free for hours, not to mention, they match every other outfit in your suitcase! For your time poolside, try complementing your kaftan with a metallic wedge…also a fabulous choice for your dinner ensemble.

Flat shoesIf you would rather brave the walking tours with flats, I love Nine West’s chic leather Gilla Gladiator, Bernardo’s Milan Sandal a white sandal is this season’s must-have—and Paloma Barcelo’s bright Dalila Espadrille Sandals. These versatile suggestions will bring any look to the next level.

Foot Primer

You don’t always have to sacrifice comfort for style…I promise! Just remember to give your feet a little love with Foot Petals (instant insole relief), The Body Shop’s Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray—the perfect refresher for tired toes—and my new favorite product, Polly Foot Primer. This all-natural roll-on prevents friction between you and your favorite footwear…ba-na-nas!

See…shoe dilemma be gone! Enjoy your trip. xoRZ
