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:

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!
Crocs Leigh Wedge Sandal
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 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 Leigh II ankle strap wedges for travel bliss.
These elegant ankle strap wedges will keep you looking fabulous all the way from a poolside Las Vegas party to a lunch at a seaside retreat. Rock them in one of two classic colors perfect for sunny outings near and far. Buy it here!
You only need three pairs of shoes for any trip. Find out how with Pack Light Stylishly!
Skechers Beverlee Smitten Kitten 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 all-black color can be used as comfortable wedges for work and can easily go from day to night. For the perfect neutral, we love the Taupe Cork 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 are 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!
Dansko Vivian Gladiator Wedges
For many readers, Dansko is their first choice for long term wear and fashion, and with these comfortable black wedges it’s easy to see why!
The Vivian gladiator wedges are perfect to bring along on a European getaway, whether it be to the ancient ruins of Athens or the coliseums of Rome.
They’re so stylish, cute, and comfortable – and they’re available in three gorgeous colors, too. We can’t choose a favorite but the above Pewter Nappa color is a classic that can do no wrong.
For the ultimate in comfort wedges, they have a contoured, cushioned footbed with molded cork. It also features a foam footbed with exceptional arch support, so you’ll be able to sightsee in both comfort and style.
The Vivian 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!
Toms Sienna Espadrille Wedge
Our readers love their Toms Ankle Strap Wedges! They’re perfect for those trips when you need to throw on a dressier wedge sandal for a short period of time.
These durable shoes can be dressed up or down to your liking. Pair with a maxi dress or some killer cropped skinny jeans.
Dress like it’s Coachella all year long at home or add these to your travel wardrobe collection. Coolness aside, these are also insanely versatile for a variety of summer adventures.
Tip: We never recommend wearing wedges to walk for eight hours straight, as they might not be the most comfortable for all-day sightseeing. Buy it here!
Bernie Mev Lulia Wedge Pump
Our readers love Bernie Mev! They say that the flats are amazing and the wedges are very comfortable, especially the Lulia Wedge Pump.
The Lulia wedges come equipped with an oh-so soft memory foam footbed and a stretch woven elastic upper. Our readers don’t just love them for travel but they wear them at home and to work, too.
Although you could easily say that these are the most comfortable black wedges, they are actually available in over THIRTY colors and prints! Choose a bright pop of color, shine, or print to make any look summer-ready in an instant. We love the gorgeous bronze color for summer while the black color is a best seller for year-round adventures. Buy it here!
Aerosoles Plush Around Wedge Heel
One of our readers recommended a pair of Aerosoles wedges for travel and said that they were absolutely amazing. We took her recommendation and found that this brand truly has some of the most comfortable wedge sandals available. As a major plus, they have a wide range range of cute and stylish wedges to choose from.
Don’t forget to have some fun with your shoes every now and then! Neutral colors are great for travel but they don’t have to be boring. We love the Plush Around Wedge in the denim combo because it can mix and match with any outfit.
Love these wedges for a casual to dressy cruise outfit or a flirty look for a weekend away with the girls. This is functional fashion at its best with these ultra-stylish comfort wedges! Buy it here!
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!
