Where to Shop for Comfort Shoes


Finding shoes that are both comfortable and fashionable is the ultimate goal for almost all female travelers. For some reason, comfort shoe brands tend to completely overlook style and focus only on function.



Ecco Damara Sandal – one of the most popular travel sandals!


Over the past few years brands have gotten better about this, including:


  • Clarks: makes beautiful wedges
  • Vionic: offers a range of pretty sandals
  • Born: introduced a balance of comfort and fashion
  • Aerosoles: stays on top of trends
  • Sofft: offers comfort and style
  • Gentle Souls: features ultra-feminine styles


The “ugly shoe” trend continues on and comfort sandals are more popular than ever before. Fashion bloggers paired the traditional Teva and Birkenstock sandals with crisp, tailored clothing, propelling these brands and similar designs to stardom.

Athleisure also blew up and workout clothing became everyday clothing, with leggings and tennis shoes leading the way to a more acceptable casual style. Comfortable footwear continues to reign over sky-high heels. Flats and sneakers are the new pairing with dressy outfits instead of stilettos.

Trends aside, comfort shoes have made giant leaps over the years and female travelers are reaping all the benefits.




And now, Nordstrom is making things easier than you could imagine with this incredible feature on their website:

Get the exact type of comfort shoe for you! Not everyone has the same needs when it comes to shoes. As we age, our feet change and require varying types of support.




The most common foot ailments include the need for arch support and plantar fasciitis, which are specifically addressed in Nordstrom’s search features (as shown above). You can use Nordstrom’s awesome tool to discover the best pair for you.

Need supportive shoes? Take a look at our post on the best travel shoes for plantar fasciitis! For different widths, we also have a post on the comfortable, cute shoes for wide feet, too.

It was also interesting to learn which brands have the benefits I’m looking for in a shoe. While it may take a few tries, I appreciated having the ability to narrow down my options. This eliminates features I don’t want and helped me find styles best suited for my needs.
