Best Travel Shoes for Kids

Guest post by Brian O’Grady

When you travel a lot with kids, you have to have good footwear. Your kids need to be protected but comfortable. You need something that’s a space saver in the suitcase but is easy to deal with when it comes to slipping them on and off.

Here are some of the best kids shoes for travel that I’ve found.

Slip Ons

Skechers has many varieties of light slip-ons with padded soles and anti-microbial liners. They come in a variety of colours so you can find a pair your child will love and keep them comfortable when traveling. They’re easy to slip on and off so they work well for a variety of travel scenarios.


Everybody likes a one for one philosophy, which is what makes buying Toms so fun and rewarding. But they’re also great for kids when traveling. They’re comfortable, easy to get on and off, and the canvas material makes them easily washable, which is always a must.

Flip Flops

Most kids love flip flops. They’re not ideal for hiking or camping, but they are great for the car, the airplane, the beach, the hotel room, and so much more. They fit snugly in a suitcase or carry on, making them easy to stow away when you don’t want them. Some flip flop brands even have arch support so they’re more comfortable than the cheap variety.

Velcro Shoes

Many sport shoe brands like Adidas and Nike make velcro versions of their most popular styles for little ones. These shoes provide support, are comfortable, and super easy to get on and off. The flexible fabric makes them easy to pack in tight spaces, making them a versatile shoe for travel.

When you plan your next stress free family holiday, use one or two of these kids shoes to ensure your child is comfortable and your life is easy. You can pack them easily and slip them on and off, which is the key to convenience, comfort, and your child being able to do it on their own.
