After traveling for 13 months with only 3 pairs of shoes, I believe that you only need 3 types of shoes, unless you are not worried about foot fungus.
Flipflops these are great for the beach, shower and everyday wear. I love my gold Havaianas with a back strap around the heel. The back strap allows me to use them not only for the beach/shower but also provides the support of a sandal. The gold colour makes its seem dressier than it is and the back strap keeps it on my foot. (I have also hiked in these babies).
Boots are great for going out, rain, mud and cold weather. Last trip I went with these little leather boots that folded down tiny but this time I have slightly upgraded and will be taking my Dr Martens. I have watched numerous youtube videos on how to wear them in and I believe they are finally ready. Docs are so versatile, firstly they have super comfy soles and they mould to your foot. They are great for wet or muddy weather (so perfect for festivals) and you can also wear them to go out. They can be worn with a dress or jeans. I know some people even hike in them. A total winner in my eyes.
Running shoe with grip are great for exercising, hiking or everyday wear. Unfortunately, I went for fashion over practicality with this one, but ideally you would want a shoe that you could hike in (if you are into that kinda stuff). I’m taking my runners for when I want to exercise or for when I just want a lighter shoe option.
I hope you have liked these tips, please share them on to your friends.
