We might only be a touch over one month into the New Year, but we’re already busy plotting our holiday destinations for 2017. More importantly, with our new Spring/Summer designer shoe collections landing on a daily basis, we’re also ousting last year’s shoes and replacing them with new, shiny numbers from this year’s most exciting designers. As we know, however, space and weight restrictions tend to prevent us from shoehorning all your new shoes into your suitcase. To help you decide on the shoes you need for your travel shoe wardrobe this year, AllSole’s editors pick the best new spring- and summer-ready shoes for your travels in 2017.
The transitional shoe to take you between the beach and the bar, a good pair of loafers will help you achieve a healthy balance between smart and casual. Sometimes frowned on for being difficult to wear, loafers are in fact one of the most versatile pairs of shoes in your wardrobe and look great with everything from smart shorts and chinos to a flowing dress or culottes.
