5 Comfortable Must-Have Shoes For A Warm Weather Getaway

Heading someplace warm this holiday season?  Make sure you pack the right footgear with your suntan lotion and beach towel.

For those with an island getaway in mind, flip-flops are a must-have. But leave the beachy rubber styles behind in favor of something more sophisticated that works for a day of sightseeing. Tkees takes the silhouette up a notch in a leather version that works with shorts or a maxi dress.

Since tropical climates offer a fair share of water sports, Teva steps in with an update of its Original Universal, part of its Artist Series and designed by the group at California-based design-studio National Forest. According to the team there, the webbing takes inspiration from exploring the world around us. “You just never know what your’e going to find, who you’re going to bump into, what awesome photo you’re going to want to take, or what cool texture or pattern you’re going to find,” said studio co-founder Steven Harrington.

Don’t think simply because you’re on vacation, you can forget about keeping in shape. For those who enjoy a morning run, pack along a pair of Mizuno Wave Hitogami, an ultra-light style that can help keep your cool in the warm weather.

Vacations are also a time for some indulgences, such as a day at the hotel spa. Here, Acorn steps in with a cozy spa slipper that keeps you relaxed head to toe.

When heading out for a romantic island dinner, slip into a pair of elegant slides from Ferragamo on a low curvy heel, they’re comfortable and sexy all at the same time.
