Most Comfortable Wedges for Travel
Written By: Sydney Woolery
Table Of Contents
Travel Fashion Help! A reader asks: Can you recommend comfortable wedges for Europe?
When asked if they should pack high heels for leisure travel to Europe, it seems that most women agree: skip the heels and pack comfortable wedge heels if you can’t do without a dressy shoe.
The cobblestone streets make it difficult to wear traditional heels so locals opt for wedges, too. We even have a guide about walking in heels on cobblestone streets.
Before you choose a wedge shoe, start by reading these guides on how to choose the best travel shoes:
- 10 Steps to Packing the Best Travel Shoes
- How to Choose the Best Walking Shoes for Europe

- Most Comfortable Ballet Flats For Travel
Don’t be fooled by their dressy appearance – these wedge heels are surprisingly comfortable and won’t make you resort to carrying that pair of backup flats in your purse. Pair with sunglasses and a pretty sundress for events such as a summer wedding or a nice meal.
With a fit that is simple and a look that is stylish, comfy wedges are an instant summer staple to add to your wardrobe. Our list features tried and tested styles recommended by our readers. Whether you wear these comfortable wedges for work or pack these in your carry-on, they’re sure to add an effortlessly fabulous touch to any outfit.
Our readers voted and these are their top recommendations. Scroll down to find out more of each of these comfortable wedges for travel.
Clarks Annadel Eirwyn Wedges
Clarks can easily win as the best brand with the most comfortable wedge sandals. (Aerosoles is a close second.) Our readers love them and so do we! Not only does Clarks specialize in creating travel-friendly footwear but their comfy wedges are particularly stylish.
We love the soft footbed that molds to your feet and the lightweight materials that make them travel-friendly and easy to pack.
TFG: My mom bought the Annadel Eirwyn in the sand color and they felt cushion soft! She said they were perfect for walking on cobblestone streets in Central America. I tried them on and I couldn’t believe how cute they looked. And they were also super light, too. Gotta love this brand for “comfort footwear”!
These are definitely TFG Approved! Buy it here!
Packing cubes make the perfect shoe bags to protect your luggage from dirty shoes. Take a look at other shoe bag ideas here!
Skechers Beverlee High Tea Wedge Sandal
The readers love their GoWalks for flat travel shoes and for airport security slip on/off needs. They’re comfy and unbelievably lightweight. The Skechers wedges are just as comfortable with a soft and cushioned footbed.
The navy color can be used as comfortable wedges for work and can easily go from day to night. For the perfect neutral, we love the natural color, which you can stylishly pair with all the items in your vacation wardrobe. Pair with a classy pair of shorts and a cream colored blouse for a stylishly cozy evening out.
These ultra-versatile shoes would look just as cute on the streets of New York as they would on the beaches of Hawaii. Feel free to take them wherever you’d like, your feet will thank you!
Tip: of the ankle strap is too loose, just create an extra hole to fit your ankles securely! Buy it here!

The Hanuku wedges come equipped with cushioned footbeds for comfortable all-day wear, a multi-strap upper and a velcro closure for easy on/off and secure fit.

Rockport Briah PERF Taupe Sling Wedge Sandal
Rockport Briah PERF Sling Wedge Sandal
Rockport is as well known of a brand as others we feature, like Clarks or Dansko. Not only that, but we also had to include them on this list because they are so comfortable. First, the style. The nude color and Perforated leather add an unexpected appeal while still remaining classic.
The peep toe and sling design add flair, while the upper is made of soft, genuine leather. While the Rockport Briah PERF Sling wedge sandal has a 2.7 inch heel, the cushioned arch support and comfortable footbed will cushion your feet for all-day wear.
These comfy wedges would look great with sundresses and rompers, as well as with skinny jeans or dressy shorts for a feminine look. You can also easily dress them down with distressed denim shorts and a tee. Buy it here!

They’re so stylish, cute, and comfortable – and they’re available in forty two gorgeous colors and prints, too. We can’t choose a favorite but the above Oily Dune color is ultra-fun for home or abroad.
For the ultimate in comfort wedges, they have a contoured, cushioned footbed with cork. It also features a latex footbed with excellent arch support, so you’ll be able to sightsee in both comfort and style.
The Kayla seamlessly merges fashion and functionality together, with a supportive sole and a simple yet classy appearance. The ankle straps and gorgeous leather material allow these to work from day to night as well! Buy it here!
Crocs Brooklyn Black Wedge Pump
Crocs Brooklyn Short Wedge Pump
Time and time again, our readers rave about Crocs. From their flats to their wedges, they’re always chosen as some of the best options for travel. Give this brand a chance and you’ll be surprised to find that many of their shoe styles are actually quite different than the traditional “Crocs” style.
Travelers have raved that Crocs are comfortable, durable, and cute, which encouraged our readers to test these short wedges out. That is exactly what they’re looking for in a sandal.
For those days when you’re looking to stay relaxed but also remain style conscious, throw on a pair of Crocs Brooklyn ankle strap wedges for travel bliss.

I purchased 2 of this amazing wedges as a result of this article. The Rockport Bria wedges are SO comfortable!! Thank you so much for all the great shoe suggestions, you are my Go to!!
Ordered the sketchers wedges (slightly different model though) after reading the article. They fit perfect (even on my wider hobbit feet), are light-weight and super comfortable. I can walk all day in them and pack them every time I‘m traveling to warmer places. Due to their wider cut, they are not the most stylish maybe, but can still be paired with a nice dress for an elevated look. Highly recommended. Also the crocs wedges are super comfortable. Now I am contemplating to splurge on a pair of Naot as they look just too cute.
Will you be writing an updated list of travel wedge shoes? Thank you!
Hi Joanne, thank you for your comment. We are currently working to update all our articles to give you the best up to date advice and content. Happy travels! ?
Cole Haan Air are amazing!
They are ?
Also worth a try for style, long term comfort, and support is the New Zealand brand Ziera….I can personally recommend
Thanks for the recommendation Gai!
Nice collection of travel wedges, but I am a fan of OTBT travel wedges, they provide great support and just the perfect lift to height. https://www.otbtshoes.com/collections/wedges, their collection is so stylish and comfortable that it is just perfect for travelers.
Thanks for the recommendation Emma!
Wish you had included some choices with smaller wedges!
Good feedback! We’ll have an updated list this month including lower wedges:-)
I love wedges since my feet and flats just don’t play well together. Crocs are my faves, including the slingbacks shown in this post.
Glad you like them! We’ll have an updated list this month 🙂
I love the Clarks casual wedge sandal that fastens with Velcro – supercomfortable enough for travelling (if it’s not too cold) and can still look dressy and stylish.
Thanks for sharing Penelope! Sounds like a great option! Happy travels!
Totally agree with the Crocs wedges. I have 2 styles and can walk forever in them. I prefer wedges over flats.
I have a very comfortable pair of gladiator-style wedges from Soft Moc. I can walk all day in these!
Love gladiator style sandals – what style do you have?
When I go to Europe, I try to take as few shoes as possible. The Cole Haan wedge with Nike technology is perfect for dressy evenings.
Love Cole Haan!
I totally agree with the comments and posts about the Aerosoles! I love my Women’s A2 By Aerosoles Photoplush Espadrille Wedge Sandal in Buff Beige. I bought mine at Kohls, but you can order them online from TGT as well. They were amazing, got with everything, and so comfy I could wear the all day. I got a lot of compliments while I was in Belize asking about the.
Hi Angela, thanks for your comment! They do make some nice looking AND comfortable sandals. I’ve also seen them discounted at Famous Footwear too.
I travel with a pair of tan Aerosoles wedges too. They are the best. So comfy and so versatile.
There’s lots of cute recommendations!
