Are you wondering how to explore in comfort and style while packing carry-on only? Figuring out which tops and bottoms to bring is hard enough, but then you start thinking about shoes.

Shoes! Shoes are the fun cherry on top (at the bottom?) of an outfit, and this shouldn’t change just because you’re globetrotting.

The solution? Fashion sneakers!

Find out why fashion sneakers make cute comfortable shoes for travel!


Travel Fashion Sneakers for Women


The great minds of the fashion industry have come together and gifted us with comfortable fashion sneakers for women that are actually adorable.

These are a great fit for so many occasions: walking around an urban city, visiting a winery in a summer dress, climbing to the top of a cathedral, taking a promenade on dirt paths…you get the idea!


See our top picks for travel fashion sneakers for women.




Nike Womens Free RN Flyknit 2018 Running Athletic


Patterned Athletic Sneakers


I occasionally run on my trips so having a pair of shoes that can work for short runs is a must. I am currently traveling with an old pair of black Nike Free Runs, which happen to be water-resistant so they are perfect for rainy days, quick runs, and light hikes.

I especially like that the uppers are easy to compress into my backpack. The waterproof versions are hard to find now, but if you see a pair of lightweight athletic sneakers with it, be sure to snatch them up! We love shoes in fun prints such as these by Adidas and Nike.


Packing cubes make the perfect shoe bags to protect your luggage from your dirty sneakers.




Columbia Newton Ridge Plus Waterproof Hiking Boot


Colorful Hiking Shoes


I spent months on the hunt for a good-looking pair of hiking shoes. I wanted something lightweight, waterproof, and low profile. I ended up purchasing a pair of trail runners from Columbia, which in my opinion carries the most stylish off road shoes. This pair from Merrell were my second choice.


Here are more ideas if you’re on the hunt for the best hiking boots for women!




Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Top Sneaker


Trendy High Tops


I love the look of a high top sneaker with skinny jeans, skirts, or leggings. They may be a little bit bulkier to pack, but can be a lighter than a pair of boots in colder destinations.

Just ensure that they are broken in before you lug them to a new locale. I own a gold pair of womens casual sneakers that I wear throughout the colder months at home, but the Adidas and Converse shoes above are equally as stylish.




Superga Trainers Low-Top Sneakers


Metallic Sneakers


Gold or silver shoes are my not-so-secret weapon for upgrading simple travel outfits. I always have one metallic shoe in my bag such the above Superga style. They match every color outfit, and are so easy to pull off. I prefer to keep it simple, and I try not to pair them with bold or over the top clothing or jewelry. Less is more when it comes to these womens casual sneakers.


Use a capsule wardrobe to pack light but create many outfits.




Puma Women’s Suede Sneakerdrille Sneaker




Flat espadrilles are great for warm weather destinations as an alternative or in addition to sandals. The tie up sneaker style is a fun take on this lightweight and breathable shoe. Tropical or beach trips are the perfect place to pull out these comfortable sneakers.

Dr. Scholl’s Shoes Madison Fashion Sneaker


Fun Slip Ons


Slip on sneakers are in every store and in every color right now. Jump on the trend and pick-up a pair for the summer. They work great for travel, flat pack easily, and will keep you looking stylish.

I wear this type of womens casual sneakers walking around new cities, visiting tourist sites, and for light trails. Dr. Scholl’s and Steve Madden offer stylish prints in affordable prices.

If you need arch support, these travel shoes may not work for you. However, if your feet are comfortable wearing flat shoes, they are the perfect shoe option for travel!
