Second Editor’s Pick: Converse Black Sneakers – All Star Shoreline

 

My second personal favorite slip on sneakers are these black Converse sneakers!

They wouldn’t be my first choice for sightseeing because they lack arch support, key for long hours on your feet. However, they’re perfect for the average trip when I’m not visiting somewhere new and don’t plan on doing extensive touring.

One review says, “I highly recommend these shoes. Definitely the best looking and most feminine style. I also love not having to deal with laces. You can read about ALL my other favorite flying shoes in this dedicated post!

Don’t Forget These Other Essentials

Bombas Solid No Shows

 

No Shows Socks

 

Readers raved about Bombas Socks forever, so I decided to try them out for myself earlier this year. I never knew socks could be THIS good. I discovered that I prefer the regular Lightweight No Show Sock vs. their Lightweight Merino Wool Sock.

I wear the gray Lightweight No Shoe Socks with my gray converse and the Low-Cut No Show Socks in tan with my Jib sneakers and Tory Burch Minnie Flats

With regards to sizing, I’m a size 6.5-7 and originally ordered the medium, but I found them too long, so now I’ve ordered size small. Get some of these, and you’ll be set with your new black sneakers!

 

Have a look at our round-up of the best no-show socks for travel!

Dr. Scholl’s Massaging Gel Sport Replacement Insoles

 

Gel Inserts

 

Even with a comfortable sneaker, you may want to consider using gel inserts! You can create a soft fit in your new black sneakers by adding your own insert to massively increase your comfort.

One reader shares how she had some problems with her heel, so she used a gel heel cup insert with her sneakers, and “it made such a difference.”

Hydro Seal Adhesive Bandages

 

Plasters/bandages

 

Even shoes made for walking can cause blisters, so make sure you pack some bandages, or plasters, just in case. Even a small blister can make it difficult to walk, and you don’t want to ruin your trip because of a blister!

Compass Rose Packing Cubes

 

How to Pack Womens Black Sneaker Shoes

 

Now that you have some ideas for solid black sneakers, it’s time to pack them! Maybe you want to store your shoes after wearing them on the plane or choose to wear a different pair home, start by selecting a container such as a shoe bag or a packing cube, then pack according to your type of luggage. See more in the video below.

 

Watch this video to start learning how to organize with packing cubes!

 

Whether you have a front loading or top loading backpack, it’s crucial to put your shoes first, at the bottom. If you’re planning to pack shoes in a rolling carry-on, remember that it stands sideways, so it’s important to note how it functions when it is upright. Most often, your shoes will need to be packed close to the wheels, so that the luggage maintains its balance in transit.
