Destination Sunshine: Shoes To Take On Holiday
Heading off on a much-needed holiday? We’ve got the shoes for you. Here are our top holiday shoes you’ll definitely be thankful you packed.
The secret ingredient to our shoes is our biomechanical footbed, A.K.A. the comfiest footbed you’ll ever wear. This little bed of goodness provides maximum support while you feel like you're walking on a cloud.
Unlike other shoes, ours are fitted with a steel shank that aids long-lasting support, encourages flex in the forefoot and increases the longevity of your shoes. Our shoes also boast a firm heel counter that gives the shoe structure and supports your rear foot.
Our shoes should be the only shoes you'll be packing for your next vacay - get ready for ultimate comfort on your travels.

Shoes To Wear On The Plane
A classic white sneaker will always reign supreme for keeping you comfy on the plane. Our new crowd favourite, Whimbrel is just what you’ve been looking for. An easy-to-wear kick that will pair perfectly with your entire suitcase, you’ll walk straight from the plane to exploring with ease.
Made for exploring and sightseeing, they make for great travel sneakers and will have you feeling supported all holiday and holi-night. Fitted with our podiatrist-designed footbed, you’ll thank us later for the customisable fit.
Sand, sweat and cobbled streets mean guaranteed blisters, so make sure you’ve worn yours in well.

Shoes To Wear For Exploring
If you’re planning on doing some exploring on your holiday then comfy walking shoes are a must. Our fave sneaker for all action-packed adventures is Jinzo.
Packed with hidden features your feet will absolutely love, these sneakers are super lightweight and will fit into your suitcase with ease (meaning more room for your holiday shopping!).

Shoes To Wear At The Beach
A comfy pair of sandals are an absolute suitcase essential. Save yourself from scorching your feet or struggling to do your laces by packing a pair of our Sanderlings.
Our Sanderlings are made from a blend of natural rubber from the hevea tree. Unlike their sporty counterparts, these comfy sandals also double as a classy evening shoe option for those warm cocktail-fuelled nights.
The only question now is, black, pink or khaki? If we didn’t have a suitcase weight limit we’d be taking one of each!

Shoes To Wear At The Bar
Oh, the flat sandal. Where would we be without you? They are perfect shoes for the beach. They are also the perfect partner for any bikini and dress combo. A comfy sandal will come in handy when navigating sandy beaches or adventuring around local streets.
Choose a classic style that will go with everything, like our Batis or Jaeger and let your holiday 'drobe do the talking.
All Bared sandals are carefully crafted with support features to look after your feet, most you can’t even see! Extra cushioning beneath the footbed makes Bared the most comfortable sandals you own.

Shoes To Wear To Dinner
The low heel is your ultimate dinner date. Opt for a heel like Starling or Toucan, they are seriously comfy but oh so chic enough to wear somewhere a little fancier. Wear them with denim, wide-leg trousers or your favourite floral dress as you enjoy al fresco dinners.
All our heels have in-built support and cushioning that has been designed by a podiatrist. Our (crazy comfy!) footbed provides maximum support while you feel like you're walking on a cloud. Each consciously-curved bump is designed to improve leg alignment and aid foot function. They’re the dream shoes if you’re planning on dancing the night away.

Shoes To Wear For That Special Occasion
If you’re on a girls’ trip or just want to feel a bit more ‘done’ for dinner, it’s always a good idea to have a pair of holiday heels at the ready. If you’ve got a long night of dancing ahead of you, shun the stilettos and opt for a more practical heel that will see you through to sunrise.
Trends come and go, but our strappy Swift is here to stay. A minimalist heel in a neutral hue is a perfect option for your destination or a special occasion. If you want your shoes to shine then Bunting is the heel for you. A sleek silhouette fitted with chain details for added edge, our Bunting heels are asking to be paired with pretty playsuits, ruffled skirts and flirty dresses.
