    26 Amazingly Comfortable Shoes That Our Readers Swear By For Traveling

    🎵These shoes are made for walking. 🎵

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to share with us the most comfortable shoes they wear when traveling. Here are their smart recommendations:

    1. A pair of investment-worthy Blundstone boots to get you through long days trekking to all the biggest attractions in a city.

    2. A pair of slip-on Native Shoes you can wear from the plane straight to the beach (and into the water) because they double as water shoes.

    3. Or a classic black Nike tennis shoe you can't go wrong with. These babies will support your feet till the end of time.

    4. Some Chacos to take on your next adventure that you can hike, bike, and walk in any weather in — because the outsole is made for wet conditions.

    5. A pair of Nike Air Huarache sneakers designed to stretch with you foot, ensuring you the utmost comfort no matter how long your flight is. (Sadly, they can't ensure that there won't be a screaming toddler next to you).

    6. A classic pair of Toms you'll find yourself gravitating toward when you pack because they're light and small and won't take up a ton of space in your bag.

    7. Or Allbirds loungers made of wool so your feet will always be at a consistent temperature, whether your plane is warm or a tundra. (There's really never an in-between.)

    8. A pair of Vibram Furoshiki sneakers that wrap around your whole foot, so you know they will fit you perfectly.

    9. A pair of Tioseban sneakers with a mesh top that'll almost make feel like you're just wearing socks.

    10. Some FitKicks — which are foldable, so you can stash them easily in a bag — if your ideal vacation involves being active outdoors.

    11. A pair of Superga Sneakers you can pair perfectly with jeans, shorts, or even a dress and look chic during your whole trip.

    12. A pair of Doc Martens Flora Chelsea boots that can handle anything you come across during your travels because these babies are made to last.

    13. Or some Suavs The Zilker shoes made of a breathable knit fabric to keep your feet from sweating during your adventures ('cause that's the worst feeling ever).

    14. Birkenstock Arizona sandals, which have a footbed with arch support to support you even more than your parents will when you tell them you want to take a year off to travel the world.

    15. A classic pair of Adidas Superstars you'll want to wear on your next vacation — and basically every other day of your life too.

    16. A pair of Sanuk Yoga Sling sandals that will make you feel like you're walking on a cushy yoga mat all day long...because, well, you are.

    17. A block-heel pump that will give your nighttime style a ~step up~ but that'll still be comfy enough to walk miles in them.

    18. A pair of Adidas slip-ons with memory foam to make you feel like you're walking on sunshine (wow!), sorry, I mean air.

    19. Dr. Martens Rakim boots perfect for cold-weather destinations where there might be snow because they have slip-resistant bottoms.

    20. Or tried-and-true Dansko Professional mules many people think are only for nurses, but that just means they can be comfortably worn when you have to stand for long periods of time.

    21. Sketchers Performance Walking Shoes to give you the comfort of a tennis shoe with the look of ballet flat.

    22. Or Sperry boat shoes to help keep your feet dry if the weather forecast is bumming you out with rain predictions.

    23. Nike Free RN 2017 Running shoes for when you just can't deal with your laces coming untied ALL. THE. DAMN. TIME.

    24. A splurge-worthy pair of Ecco sneakers that look chic and also feel heavenly on your feet, even if you have foot problems.

    25. Sperry slip-ons, which you can put in the washing machine if you happen to run into a ~sticky~ situation during your trip.

    26. Or a pair of Vans sneakers with UltraCush soles and a minimalist design to keep you from looking like a tourist.

    Wearing comfortable shoes when traveling may* prevent this from happening at the end of the day:
