The BEST Walking Shoes for Travel


This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Over the past 6 months, I’ve put well over a hundred miles on these shoes. And not once have my feet hurt.

When I travel, my favorite way to explore each new place is on foot. You’re able to see so much more than you might see from a car and you can often get to places you might not otherwise find or access.

Today’s giveaway is Day 9 of the Christmas Giveaways and it is for a pair of my beloved best ever walking shoes – or an Amazon gift card of equal value. I truly hope that the winner will love these shoes every single bit as much as I do!

The Best Ever Walking Shoes -

Best Walking Shoes for Women

Despite the fact that I’m not a terribly fashionable person most of the time, I really dislike wearing tennis shoes for days on end.

In addition to that, tennis shoes are always bulky to pack and I feel like they often scream tourist as well.

After this much wear, I can tell you beyond any doubt that these Remonte shoes are worth every single penny.

The BEST Walking Shoes for Travel are my favorite shoes for every day too!

Best Walking Shoes

5 reasons I love my walking shoes:

  • They’re comfortable for hours and miles of walking.
  • They’re crazy lightweight shoes.
  • They’re waterproof. (I wear them with these awesome no-show socks, but I can absolutely see wearing them with heavier socks in the winter.)
  • They’re low profile and they pack small.
  • The arch support is terrific with an excellent foot pad.

If ever there was a blog post that made me feel somewhat old, this might be the one. As I wax eloquent on the awesomeness of a pair of great walking shoes, I’m laughing at myself and I don’t even care.

I did a great deal of research and I tried on endless shoes before settling on these and I LOVE them.

In all seriousness, these shoes are one of the best travel purchases I made this year.

Walking Shoes for Travel

While planning our trip to Europe I knew that I’d want a solid shoe for walking days on end.

My favorite part of cruising is the ability to visit so many different places without the hassle of figuring out your transportation or lodging for each new city.

We visited 9 ports and 10 European cities over the past two weeks: London in England, Guernsey in the Channel Islands, Dublin, and Belfast in Ireland, Kirkwall in the Scottish Orkney Islands, Glasgow, Invergordon, and Edinborough in Scotland, Giverny and Rouen in France.

Once we hit each port, we hit the street walking. We typically schedule an excursion for half a day or so and then wander through the city until it is time to be back at port.

Cruising really does give you the best of both worlds. You have so many conveniences of home (and not dealing with different hotels) along with the fun of exploring so many new places.

    Being disabled makes walking any distance difficult, so my favorite place to walk is either in Fred Meyer (our Kroger stores) or Costco. Shopping for food is often one of our favorite outings.

    I love to walk at the Old Airport trail. From the top of the mesa you feel like your on top of the world, I can see the San Francisco Peak, ridges of north and south rim of Grand Canyon, the valleys, buttes and mesas of the desert which is my home. If my timing is right I’m able to see the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. There can be 50 other people there but you’ll only hear the solitude of desert living.

    I just purchased these shoes online because of your review. We’ll be traveling to Germany this summer to visit friends, family, and stop in some new to us cities. I went with a light pink color…..since that’s my jam, and I can’t wait. They’re awfully cute….and comfy is key! Thanks for the review!
