When traveling, always pack shoes that are light, conformable, and easy to slip on and off. You’ll be glad you chose slip-ons when you see fellow travelers fussing with shoelaces and zippers in the security line and even more glad when you don’t have to pay additional baggage fees for hard-to-pack shoes.
Our favorite easy-travel shoes? TOMS. These funky canvas espadrilles are ballet flat chic and tennis shoe comfortable. Go classic with an original ecru pair, or show a little spirit with an ikat print. And, you can feel good about wearing TOMS – and not just as self-congratulation for solving the age-old cute shoe-comfy shoe dilemma. For every pair of TOMS purchased, the company will donate a pair to a child in need.
Shown: Natural Canvas Women’s Classic, $44.
