Comfortable Holiday Shoes

summer shoes

When I went to Florida last year, I had really bad foot doom.

The first day, we walked from our hotel to Universal Studios and walked around the Island of Adventures for about 8 hours in the Floridian sunshine.

I was wearing black slip on shoes with no socks and boy, did I pay for it.

The pain got so bad that I had to buy a pair of Croc flipflops from one of the stands in Universal.

This gave my feet a brief hour or so of comfort until the plastic of the flipflop started cutting up my skin in between my toes.

I then spent the rest of the holiday having to apply Neosporin (which I couldn’t say without using an American accent) to my toes to stop it from getting infected.

Since then, I vowed to take sensible shoes on holiday. So I’ve been having a look around online for suitable holiday shoes and sandals.

Jones Bootsmaker was my first stop.

You can see their sandal and flat-shoe selection for yourself – but I’ve picked out some of my favourites.

As you can tell, I always avoid the flip-flop Y strap style since my toe almost died of flip-flop last year.

I appreciate the value of being comfortable over stylish much more now. I really like my shoes to have a chunky heal as they make me feel more stable and more supported.

I always seem to gravitate towards red but I hardly ever buy it because I don’t own many clothes that red would go with. This needs to change so all the red can be mine.

The second place I looked was House of Fraser. They have quite a vast shoe selection, too


What type of shoes do you take on holiday with you?

    When it comes to long days of wandering around new places, I definitely sway more towards comfort & practicality 🙂 Loving the tan strap pair from House of Fraser 🙂

    Oh my gosh that sounds so painful! I always just go for sneakers if I’m going to a theme park because if it’s really hot, I like a cushiony pair of white socks!

    These are cute shoes. I try and take a pair of old shoes with me as well as newer ones when I go on holiday, because it never fails for my feet to ache. I use plasters as well where I think blisters might happen, so it prevents them as well. But, sometimes I forget. Definitely comfy shoes are a must, I rather be comfy than broken, haha!! x

    I never understand why people wear flip flops as footwear anywhere but the beach since they offer zero support. I usually bring a pair of trainers and comfy flats when I go on holiday.

    Great choices comfortable shoes are very important. I really like the wedges. I normally opt for glitter shoes that are flat Lucy x
