Top 7 Top Travel Walking Shoes for Women


When you are traveling, odds are high you will be doing a lot of walking. Whether you plan to window shop or sightsee, a comfortable and rugged pair of walking shoes is crucial. It's important they be versatile, preferably so you don't need to pack multiple pairs, so they should look good and go well with any outfit. Here is a list of the top travel walking shoes for women that'll be perfect for your trip France.

1. Merrell Waterproof Polar Moc Women's Walking Shoe

Merrell Waterproof Polar Moc Walking Shoes
I have personally romped all over France, from hiking to climbing seemingly endless stairs to simply meandering from cafe to cafe, wearing a pair of these versatile and comfortable shoes. This is one of my favorite pairs of all time. The shoes can go from mild traction needed for mountain climbing to an evening dress for dinner. No, you won't wear them to a formal cocktail party, but you truly can travel with just this one pair (especially if you go with black). Best of all, these are one of the lower-priced comfort walking shoes for travel.

2. Finn Comfort Quebec Women's Travel Walking Shoe

Don't let this shoe's cute looks deceive you. This Finn Comfort shoe is built for walking. If you need to look good during your travels, this is a great choice. You don't need clunky shoes or stark white tennis shoes to enjoy long stretches of walking. I wouldn't recommend hiking the Pyrenees in these shoes, but they can handle any city walking duties with style.

3. Birkenstock Boston Suede Comfort Shoe

Birkenstock Boston Suede Travel Walking Shoes
This is a true wanderer's classic shoe, and there is good reason for that. There are few shoes that are more beloved than Birkenstocks. The Boston Suedes feel like second skin, and you can walk for days with these. These don't double as dressy as some comfort and walking shoes, but they win for sheer comfort and durability. They are also clogs, but you can pair them with socks or tights in cooler weather.

4. ECCO Bouillon Mary Jane Travel Walking Shoes

This shoe has so much going for it. It's adorable, comfortable and sleek. This is probably one of the most comfortable shoes on the market, and it manages to truly look good. Planning a honeymoon in Paris or Bordeaux? This is the ultimate pretty city walking shoe. Look good, and feel good.

5. New Balance Travel Walking Shoe

This tennis shoe with a sporty look will get you through many long tourist days. You can't pass these off as dressy, but your feet will thank you all day long. These shoes come in a choice between funky silver and orange color scheme, or a cute lavender and white. These shoes are fun!

6. Aerosoles Printz Charming Travel Walking Shoes

If you need to dress it up and are looking for a little lift, these stylish comfort shoes are ideal. Based on a ballet slipper design, they look the part for a dress, skirt or dress pants, and yet they are comfortable even after a day of walking. These are the shoes to choose if you need to impress or be well-dressed on your travels. Lovely. They also come in a choice between solid black, black with white piping, or tan leather with chocolate brown detailing.
