Wherever you go, whatever you’re doing, shoes are always coming with you. No matter where you go, you’ll always need a reliable pair or possibly two. Here are the best athletic shoes for solo travelers.

While style shouldn’t be at the top of your list of important factors when buying travel shoes, it’s still an important factor to consider. Even on solo trips, you’re bound to be in pictures, so you might as well try to look your best.

Traveling alone, there’s no one to help carry your luggage or belongings. That’s why it’s important to be as efficient and optimal with your packing as possible and bringing a pair of lightweight shoes is one way to achieve that.

Don’t forget that your feet matter most, but that also shouldn’t mean sacrificing personal flair.

The road can be an arduous place to be alone. Bringing along a pair of durable shoes is paramount because that could be the only pair available to you, unless you stop by a shoe store on your journeys.

Being in the great outdoors and in nature, your shoes are bound to get damaged and dirtied. But that doesn’t mean your feet have to, as well. Make sure your pair of shoes are protective and will keep you safe from the elements.

Whether wet or dry, don’t let the conditions affect you.
