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 best travel shoes you need this fall to have to make packing a breeze.
7 Best Travel Shoes to Pack for Your Fall Vacations

1. A classic, comfortable walking shoe
Yes, the Vans Authentic shoes are firmly rooted in the California surf culture, but they can be found on everyone from school girls to celebrities, which is probably part of their appeal. They’re also very comfortable and versatile. You have to love a comfortable travel shoe that can go with everything, and this one comes in numerous colors and textures.
2. A sturdy pair of tall weatherproof 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 Stoneleigh H20 Boots! (P.S. They’re waterproof!)
3. Easy to pack shoes
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 lie flat so you can pack multiple pairs in your bag.
4. A multi-purpose exercise 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 Terrex Agravic XT GTX. 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 cute and comfortable ballet shoes, but I think the Comfortiva Maloree flats are exactly that. The best part is they have a Pillowtop® memory foam footbed making them super supportive!
6. The perfect comfortable short boot
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 stylish pair of driving shoes
Nothing says amazing like a beautiful pair of red shoes! These Malena loafers from Born are not only stylish, they will cradle your foot right out of the box.
What’s your choice for the best travel shoe for fall?
