Fall is finally here, which means cooler temperatures are just around the corner. Unfortunately, fall can be a difficult season for packing because weather varies from coast to coast and north to south, so how can you be sure you’re covered? I like to travel with no more than 4 pairs at a time (with one of those being the pair on my feet), so I have a steady stream of shoes I can choose from each season. Here are the 7 pairs of travel shoes you need to have this fall to make packing a breeze.
7 Pairs of Travel Shoes You Need to Have This Fall

1. A classic shoe
Yes, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars can be seen on everyone from school girls to celebrities, which is probably part of their appeal, but they’re also very comfortable and versatile. I have a gray pair and a black pair and bring one of them along when I travel because they’re comfortable and go with everything.
2. A sturdy pair of tall boots
What I love about tall boots is that they go with anything. You can wear them with leggings, jeans, or a skirt and they look cute. They can be casual or dressy, which makes them perfect to bring along for any fall trip. Love these Ariat Stanton H20 Boots! (P.S. They’re waterproof!)
3. Shoes that don’t take up any room
What I love about TOMS is that for every pair you purchase, they give a pair to a person in need. They also make a pretty comfortable shoe. While there isn’t a ton of support, they are super thin and fold flat so you can pack multiple pairs in your bag.
4. A multi-purpose shoe
On a lot of trips I’m finding I spend a fair amount of time hiking and walking, so I had to find a pair of shoes that works for both. Enter the adidas Outdoor Kanadia. This shoe is perfect for trails and comfortable for walking cobblestone streets too. They’re also waterproof which saves me from packing two pairs of shoes. I call that a win!
5. Cute and classy ballet shoes
It can be difficult to find a pair of ballet shoes that are cute and comfortable, but I think the Cole Haan Tali bow ballet flats are just that. Love these ballet flats that come in a variety of colors so pick your favorite and show off your style!
6. The perfect bootie
Call it a bootie, call it a boot, I don’t care what you call it, I’m a fan. Hands down this is my all time favorite travel shoe. The UGG Simmens is comfortable in fall, winter, early spring, and looks good with everything. These are shoes you can wear over long distances without your feet killing you. They’re warm, they’re waterproof, and you will never want to take them off. You’re welcome.
7. A fabulous pair of driving shoes
Nothing says amazing like a beautiful pair of animal print shoes! These Matteo penny loafers from Massimo are not only stylish, they will cradle your foot right out of the box.
What’s your favorite travel shoe for fall?
