The key elements for a wonderful travel fashion wardrobe are style and comfort, and what screams fashionable and trend-setting better than a pair of shoes.

Luckily, our readers have come to the rescue with a wide range of footwear so that you can ensure you find a pair that is both practical and stylish for your travel capsule wardrobe. Here are our readers’ recommendations for the best red shoes out there!

Birkenstock Red Sandal Flats
