Best Travel Shoes: Womens Leather Boots
by Cailyn Cox
Why Boots make the Best Travel Shoes for City Travel
Boots are perfect for city travel including trips to Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
Boots provide far more stability and support than regular shoes, giving a much higher degree of support and protection to both your ankle and foot. Many can be surprisingly light weight making them both easy to walk in and easy to transport so you don’t have to worry about the extra baggage weight when packing.
Boots are extremely versatile allowing for excessive walking, light hiking, and even nightlife, as they are easily transitioned from a day look to a night look, boots are a great choice for any occasion and compliment any outfit. Designed to withstand all elements and prevent the entry of water, snow or dirt, ensuring that your feet remain dry and warm (nothing puts a damper on your trip like wet feet).
Leather is a fantastic option as they are soft and waterproof whilst allowing for breathability and durability. Opt for black or dark brown leather as these colours are less obtrusive and easy to match with any outfit. In addition they are also forgiving with any dirt that you may encounter during your travels.
The key factors for a wonderful travel fashion wardrobe are simple: style and comfort and with extensive range available you can ensure you find a pair that is both practical and stylish. With this selection of flat boots you’ll have both:
- Ride It Out Boot €37 ($49) They have a man-made upper and sole, with adjustable straps and a side zipper which makes them easy to get on and off.
- Into the Night Boot €27 ($35) These boots use Man-made materials and have front laces and a side zipper which ensures they are easy to get on and you can adjust the laces accordingly.

- Back Road Boots €72 ($95) These boots are made from distressed brown leather, and slip on, which make them convenient and comfortable.
For nearly every trip in metropolitan cities, you’ll need a pair of womens leather boots; these sturdy shoes make the best travel shoes because they’re perfect for walking and everyday use. If your anticipated activities involve a lot of exercise and a lot of walking, or the use public transportation then boots are what you need!
In fact, even if you plan to be low-key it would still be beneficial to travel with boots. Boots are undoubtedly my top pick when it comes to stylish travel shoes as they are not only exceptionally comfortable, but also effortlessly create a classic casual chic look.
An important tip when purchasing your boots are how easily they come on and off – as you do not want boots that you battle to put on, or get off on holiday and you should consider the that you may be required to remove them, for example at airport security.
I truly believe womens leather boots are the best travel shoes, an investments buy, lasting for years in both structure and style. Don’t wait – Pack those boots today.
TFG Recommends: No matter what your choice of fashionable travel shoes, Dr. Scholl’s Gel Insoles are a must for the ultimate in added comfort! They make insoles cut specifically for a woman’s foot so they fit your flats, trainer, or boots just right. Their High Heel Insoles are a total life saver if you plan to travel with heels.
