Of all life’s problems to have, choosing which shoes to pack with you for your weekend getaway is right at the top of the list! Well, maybe second. Okay, maybe it’s not that important, but it’s still a problem that you have!
If you find yourself in this predicament, below is an article which can help.
Leaving for a Tropical Climate
If you are preparing to visit a country with a tropical climate then you should be in for humidity and high levels of moisture. Of course, you will also be in for a lot of hiking as these are often the main types of activities you can do at these destinations. Just pack the following:
- Slip-proof hiking boots/Waterproof boots
- A pair of good-quality sneakers
- A pair of sandals
Slip-proof shoes is a must as the majority of your hiking will be through slippers rainforests. The sneakers are for you to walk around the towns and explore when you don’t want to wear your boots, but be sure yours are in good condition. If not, head to the Groupon Coupons page for TOMS before you fly out. The reason for this is because the type of walking you will do in these areas can put a strain on your sneakers and the last thing that you want to happen is for them to break mid-trek.
If you are lucky enough to be visiting the snow this season then you will be in for a white and fluffy treat! Of course, you will hire your snow boots when you arrive, but for everything else, here is what you will need to pack:
- Waterproof/Hiking Boots
- Dress Shoes
It can seem strange to pack dress shoes for a trip to the snow but it’s important to remember that most of the time will actually be spent off the snow. Given the time of the year, the daylight hours are limited, meaning that you will have restricted access to snow based activities. And given that the majority of the places will be owned by the resort you can expect a general level of dress-code requirements.
Heading Towards Rain?
There are some people who love to travel in the rain and then others who enjoy the low prices which accompany the season. Whichever you are, if you are heading into wet weather, here is what you will need to pack:
- Waterproof boots/Shoes/Hiking Boots
- Slip-Proof sandals
If you do pack sandals then it’s important that they have a certain level of slip=proof coating on the bottom of tread to keep you from slipping. Given that the majority of places you will be visiting indoors will have tiles, make sure yours can keep you upright and comfortable.
Just because you can’t take your entire shoe collection with you doesn’t mean that you can’t explore the world! The next time that you are headed for a vacation and have limited luggage space, keep this article in mind!
