The perfect travel shoes with a fashionable flair

Refuse to sacrifice comfort and style

Shoes are perhaps the utmost essential gear to contemplate when packing for vacation or a business trip. A decent pair of travel shoes might not be the most exciting consideration whilst packing, but they can make or devastate one’s day.

I have been looking for ages for travel shoes that are designed to maximise comfort without compromising style. Versatility is another important element that makes for a good pair of travel shoes. If the same shoes can effortlessly slip from shopping, to a 6-hour walking tour and on to dinner, sans blisters, then that search for the perfect travel shoes is finally over.

Ticking all the boxes, the 3.ZERØGRAND Bow Skimmer Flats from Cole Haan are the best travel shoes for refusing to sacrifice comfort or style. Super-comfy, lightweight, (i.e. packable) and versatile, the flats are stylishly designed to transition from the workplace to a night out, from well-deserved holidays to important business trips.

Flats are great multipurpose travel shoes but often the soles are too thin to support hours of walking or sightseeing. Ergonomically engineered with a highly functional design, the shoes from Cole Haan are made with their latest 3.ZERØGRAND comfort technology for a fit that moulds to the foot and cushions every step.

Grand is Cole Haan’s name for innovation and the innovative approach that comes from marrying craft, style and engineering.

Astonishingly lightweight, there is a strong emphasis on comfort by embedding energy foam and padding into the shoes at the pressure points to both propel and ease the foot. The full rubber outsole comes with concealed Grand.ØS technology.

Timelessly elegant, the crisply pointed-toe shoes are available in a selection of styles, such as front bow detailing, and colours that include black, sand, burgundy and metallic. Ultra-flattering and smart looking, the shoes’ sleek, minimal silhouette offers incredible versatility for a range of occasions.

Supremely comfortable and expertly crafted, they are made from smooth leather and are fully lined.

Founded in 1928, Cole Haan has been long known for its quality, craftsmanship and style. By often teaming up with prominent designers, athletes and style-setters, Cole Haan has commanded a position as a leader in terms of innovation and excellence. CFDA-nominated menswear designer Todd Snyder and a trio of ballerinas from the New York City Ballet have collaborated with Cole Haan on contemporary collections.

For a polished and effortlessly stylish look, there is no going wrong with the Skimmer Flats from Cole Haan. This is a shoe that is actually made for fashionable walking as it delivers extraordinary all-day comfort with immense flair and finesse.
