The 10 best shoes for a city trip
What could be better than discovering a new city? Whether you're exploring distant metropolises or a German city - a successful city trip stands and falls with the right shoes. Whether cobblestones, endless queues or a sudden downpour - urban discovery tours hold many challenges for our footwear. Most of the time, there is also not enough space in the suitcase to pack different shoes for all eventualities. All the better to have a pair of versatile, comfortable all-rounders with you that can take on any adventure. But what do the perfect travel shoes actually look like?
Travel Shoes - Versatile, Stylish & Comfortable
Sore and aching feet can really ruin your travel fun. That's why comfort is the name of the game when it comes to travel shoes. Lightweight, functional sneakers are the ideal partners for a city trip, as they offer very good cushioning and a comfortable, flexible fit - so long periods of standing and walking are no problem. Breathable materials such as mesh or microfiber provide optimal ventilation on warm days and prevent unpleasant sweaty feet. For city trips in cool, wet weather, sturdy boots and weatherproof travel shoes with a Gore-Tex membrane are the best choice. If you still want to roam the clubs in the evening, you should also have a chic model in your luggage. With a noble leather sneaker, for example from Lacoste, fashion-conscious men are always right. For women, a beautiful fashion sneaker with glitter or metallic details, for example from New Balance, is the ideal partner for going out. Whether sightseeing, shopping or clubbing - we have compiled our 10 travel favorites for you!
