A handmade pair of leather huarache sandals
Macarena Collection is based in Buena Park, California and specializes in colorful Mexican shoe and clothing design. These sandals are available in sizes 5–10 and in more colors.

Promising review: "I unexpectedly had to walk five miles in the Florida heat and humidity but I had these shoes on and my feet didn’t hurt at all! Super cute and functional." — Tori Kuhn
2
A pair of iconic Dr. Martens Chelsea boots
Many reviewers say these run big, so consider sizing down. They are available in sizes 5–11.

Promising review: "I have been wearing Docs for years now, and this pair has to take first place for comfort. They're incredibly cute and versatile, can be dressed up or down, and just like any other pair are faithfully durable. Docs always run big so I sized a full size down and still comfortably wear them with thin-thick socks. I brought them on a long trip, wore them in various weather conditions like rain/snow/forest trails, and they worked great." — Stacy Cruz
3
A pair of bestselling Adidas running shoes with "cloud foam" soles
Available in sizes 5–12 and 24 designs.

Promising review:
"So comfortable. Walked around London for seven to eight hours and my feet were not the least bit sore! I recommended them to a friend who was taking a two-week vacation in Italy and she said the same...comfortable after hours and hours of walking!" — Christina
4
Waterproof Teva sandals
These have rubber soles which come in handy on slippery surfaces. They are available in sizes 5–13 and 48 designs — not all designs available in all sizes.

Promising review: "Comfiest shoes on the planet. I bought them for my trip to Thailand, which included a heavy amount of walking and hiking. I now wear them all the time, even for nonadventurous activities. They are so darn comfortable, and have great grip." — Caroline V.
5
A pair of Birkenstocks with a contoured footbed and unbeatable arch support
Available in sizes 5–14.5, as well as in narrow sizes, and in dozens of designs. (Some designs are not available in all sizes.)

Promising review:
"I love the Arizona style. They are easy to adjust and easy to slip on and off. I suffered from a heel spur and I was able to walk without pain when I changed over to the Arizona sandals. I took several pairs of shoes on vacation and never once did I switch over to a different pair. I can walk for long periods of time with comfort. They are my first choice of shoes." — Glenn B.
6
A pair of supportive Dr. Scholl's slip-ons made from recycled plastic
Available in sizes 5–11, including wide sizes, and in 26 designs. (Some designs are not available in all sizes.)

Promising review: "I bought these shoes to wear on vacation to the Grand Canyon. I did a lot of walking on that trip, and my feet never hurt and I still looked cute. Then a few months later, we went to Durango, Colorado and did a ton of walking and again, my feet never hurt. I washed them and let them air dry several times over the next year and they came out great every time. They soon became my daily shoes to wear around the house. I have already bought a second pair to replace them so I can still look cute and be comfortable and wear the first pair when I water the garden. I would definitely recommend these shoes!" — J. Perkins
7
Tory Burch
A luxury ballet flat with a comfortable elastic backing
Available in sizes 4–13 and five colors. (Some colors are not available in all sizes.)

Promising review:
"I got these for a trip and love them! Tory's travel ballets are a beautiful soft leather, very comfortable, and will fit anywhere when traveling. I like all the fun colors but got black ones...will be getting another pair!" — lheff
8
A flexible ballet with over 25,000 five-star ratings
Available in sizes 5–15, including wide sizes, and in 34 designs.

Promising review: "I normally cannot wear flats because they give me terrible blisters on the back of my feet. These didn't! Bought these in nude for a city vacation with a lot of walking, but where sandals aren't necessarily worn and these were perfect! They obviously don't have the support of sneakers, but I am so happy to finally have a cheap pair of flats that don't give me blisters. I did break them in with thin socks on around my house before wearing them out and when possible, I wear them with little sock liners. Also — I was able to fold these in half like Tieks and fit them in a semi-small purse to change into to dance at a wedding! Score!" — Kate
9
MiucciaStudio / Etsy
A gorgeous leather slide
MiucciaStudio is based in Indonesia, and specializes in the dreamiest handmade shoes and bags. These slides are available in European sizes 36–41 and in six colors.

Promising review: "Love love love these!! I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of mules for months, I’m so happy I ordered these. They go with everything and super comfy. Shipping was right on time if not a little early." — Stacie Carlson

"I bought these to take on a trip, they arrived and I packed them without breaking them in — no worries, they are so comfortable, I wore them the whole trip. Love, love these shoes! This is my second pair, first have lasted a year and I wear the old ones still. They wash up nicely, too! Highly recommend!!!" — Lori M.
11
A pair of canvas cutout sandals
Available in sizes 5–12 and 12 styles.

Promising review:
"I'm obsessed with this shoe! I love that it fits like a bootie. Adorable with skinny jeans/leggings, dresses, etc. Can be dressed up or down — I wore them to a wedding in Greece, and also out and about during the day in Spain. Very comfortable for walking, dancing, whatever!" — jasmineflower
12
A chunky pair of trendy Fila platform sneakers
Available in sizes 5–11 and 26 designs — not all designs available in all sizes.

Promising review:
"My new everyday sneaker. I love the design and I love the small platform to give me height! They are so comfortable too, I’ve worn them to the zoo walking for hours and my feet didn't hurt. I love these shoes and am so glad I finally bought them!" — Meredith Johnstone
13
A flexible pair of water shoes that are quick drying and lightweight
Available in sizes 5.5–15.5 and 43 styles.

Promising review:
"These are super comfortable. Bought a pair for every member of my family for vacation at the waterpark. Has just enough cushion to make walking all day comfortable but light enough that they were not cumbersome. Great price point, too!" —Teresa Howell
14
A beachy slip-on with faux elastic laces and over 16,000 five-star ratings
Available in sizes 6–11, wide sizes, and dozens of colors.

Promising review: "I purchased these prior to our family beach trip. I found out I was pregnant and needed some type of support when walking around on vacation, rather than flat flip-flops. I read the reviews for these shoes and they were raving. I see why!! These could sell for more money but are reasonably priced. Great quality. There are no laces to tie — elastic bands. I really love these with or without socks. They are roomy but not too big width-wise. This is not a very narrow shoe. I would recommend this shoe for anyone traveling as the go-to shoe. They’re easy to get on and get off. Super stylish." — Nicole_B
15

Promising review: "These shoes are absolutely beautiful. I love the chic yet minimal style. They came from Greece to Everett, WA in less than a week. Soft leather that is great for bunions. Thanks!" — Carrie Barbee
16
A casual sneaker complete with a removable footbed for added arch support
Available in sizes 5–12, including wide sizes, and six colors.

Promising review:
"This was a great shoe for making a wedding reception comfy, and a road trip a little classy!! The satin finish leather was dressy enough that it complimented my olive dress, but wasn’t so fancy to be out of place walking around a ghost town in athleisure wear. I love these shoes!!" — Nick's Page
17
A pair of braided heeled slip-ons
Available in sizes 6–10 and 36 designs.

Promising review:
"Reaching for these sandals more and more because they’re comfy, cute, and elevate my outfits! They didn’t require any breaking in and I’ve worn them for an entire day out and had no issues with long term wear. Fit was true to size. Going to get another color since I love them so much!" — Nidhi Patel
18

A pair of Crocs sandals that are lightweight, waterproof and easily washable
Available in sizes 4–11 and 21 designs.

Promising review:
"So comfortable. I wore these on the plane for vacation — I averaged 12,000 steps a day. I overpacked and brought shoes for different outfits but kept going back to these. They were the only shoes I could tolerate. So happy with my purchase!" — Karen
22

Promising review:
"I broke the cardinal rule and took new shoes to Europe for vacation, but I relied on the past history I've had with many Clarks I've bought in the past and wasn't disappointed. These shoes were troopers through all the cobblestone streets and climbing an ungodly amount of flights of stairs to visit castles." — cheekymonkey
24
