Updating Your Travel Shoe Wardrobe for 2017

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 Loafers

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.

The Trainers

While we may wishfully dream of days drifting to sleep on sandy beaches, the reality of it is that spring and summer holidays involve a lot of time on your feet wandering through open spaces. Trainers are a year-round staple, but are especially vital in summer for all-day comfort. More importantly, the warmer weather offers up a wider range of fabrications and colour palettes in the sneaker world so that you can embrace the new season.

The Sandal

After confining your feet to the four walls on a leather boot for the duration of winter, it is time to let your feet breathe with some sun-ready sandals. It is far too easy to get the sandal all wrong (crocs, anyone?), so steer clear of summer monstrosities with our buyer’s selection of this season’s best sandals.

The Statement Shoe

Whether you’re dining with the captain on a cruise around the Bahamas or heading out for a slap-up meal on your city break, a solid pair of dress shoes are too often overlooked when stuffing out suitcases. We’re pretty confident we can change your mind with our latest collection…

The Boot

Built with a solid construction designed for comfort and functionality, the boot is a year-round staple often retired to the back of the wardrobe as soon as spring comes around. Many brands have reinvented the boot with new seasonal silhouettes and summer-ready fabrications for SS17.
