Just Because You Can’t Fill a Checked Suitcase With Shoes Doesn’t Mean That You Can’t Enjoy a Vacation!

If you have been keeping your eye on the latest travel deals then you have likely noticed a trend between each and every airline. In order to keep the flight prices down, airlines are rarely including checked baggage in your ticket allowance when you book, often charging you a hefty fee if you choose to bring a checked bag. In fact, there are many deals which do not allow you to bring a checked bag at all, even if you pay.

While this is often enough to turn a shoe loving fashionista off the idea, below are some sneaky tips to help you pack just the shoes you need for a weekend away when you’re only allowed to take limited luggage.

Headed to the Snow?

With the cold weather soon upon us, many people are thinking about heading to the snowfields for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. If you would like one of those very people, here are the shoes you will need to take with you.

  • 1 pair of snow boots (boots with snow-focused grips on the bottom)
  • 1 pair of good sneakers
  • 1 pair of dress shoes

While it might seem strange to take dress shoes for a weekend away at the snow, many of the events occurring at the snowfields will require you to be at least somewhat dressed up, requiring, at a minimum, a clean dress shoe. If you don’t think you have anything which fits the bill, grab something from the Groupon Coupons page for Finish Line before your trip.

Have a Love for the Tropics?

When it comes to tropical environments, you either love them or you hate them. And while you might hate them, they are also the best destinations to visit when keeping your travel budget down. If you find yourself packing for a week in a tropical environment, here’s what you will need:

  • 1 pair of very high-quality extra grip hiking boots
  • 1 pair of sneakers
  • 1 pair of dress shoes

If you don’t have a pair of high-quality hiking boots which are slip resistant then get yourself a pair before you go. Tropical environments are not only wet, the ground is also very slippery. And with the majority of activities involving a healthy dose of walking or hiking through forests, it’s important that your shoes can keep you safe and upright.

Wet Weather Bound?

Of course, if you like to take it one step further with the moisture then you could always visit a country experiencing its rainy season. While it might not seem ideal on the surface, the seasons often consist of only a few hours of rain each day, with the majority of tourist activities still operating. For this type of climate, consider the following:

  • 1 pair of waterproof boots/hiking boot covers
  • 1 pair of sneakers
  • 1 pair of dress shoes

Even if your shoes claim to be waterproof, it doesn’t hurt to cover them and your ankles with waterproof covers to help keep the rain out of your shoes and socks. Given that you are likely to be doing a lot of walking, it’s important to keep as much of the water outside of your clothing as possible.

There you have it! Proof that you can still enjoy a vacation without the need to pack each and every pair of shoes that you own!
