Boots: Choose ideal hiking boots. Waterproof boots are ideal for cold environments or areas where you may encounter rain. Once bought, it is advisable to wear your boots before your trip to ensure they are comfortable.

Running Shoes: Running shoes are ideal for your walking tours, hiking adventures pick a pair that’s easy to maintain. Ensure they can handle all kinds of weather and pick a neutral colour.

Flats: I always pack the foldable flats since they take so little packing space. Flats are ideal for going out. Pick a neutral colour to go with just about every outfit and for a different occasion. You can also pick for a moccasin.

Sandals: Useful for that beach walk. A basic sandal with a rubber sole will be ideal for all your vacation since they can withstand all conditions from the beach to water activities and can also be used for walking tours too.

Walking Shoes: Your feet will swell as you walk. So pick a walking shoe that is about a size bigger, one size higher would be ideal. Consider the type of walking you will be doing. Boots are ideal for poorly maintained trails as well as hikes. However, for walks on paved and well-maintained areas running shoes would be ideal. Ensure your shoes fit well, with room for toes otherwise any small amount of rubbing will produce blisters.

Remember the success of your vacation depends on having a comfortable pair of shoes. Create time to shop and find the best shoe that you can afford, it will be worth your time and money.
