You’ve been saving your pennies for months; the flights are booked and explorer mode is engaged! Now, it’s time to start packing for your big travelling adventure. Which shoes are best to pack?
Depending on where you’re going and what adventures you’ll be undertaking, the one thing all travelers will tell you is comfort is key! Orthopaedic thongs or sandals made from lightweight and comfortable materials will keep you going.
If you’re going to be doing a lot of walking, make sure you pack multiple pairs of shoes just in case you have a blow out! Supportive sandals will help take the pressure off your feet, so opt for footwear that boasts great arch support and also offers support to other areas of the foot such as a metatarsal bar to help stop toe clenching and a heel cup to cradle the foot as you strike the ground.
Choosing orthotic flip flops will also allow the foot room to breathe, reducing the risk of friction and blisters if you’re doing all of your sight-seeing on foot.
Plus, ortho thongs are super compactible, so you can pack heaps of your favourite pairs without taking up too much space in your suitcase!
