When planning a beach vacation, one of the most important things you’ll need to do is ensure you have the right shoes. The shoes you wear at the beach will be different from those you wear anywhere else, which means any ordinary pair will not do. These styles are perfect for casual fun, and should definitely be packed in your suitcase.
A pair of flat-soled sandals from Birkenstock are a must. These shoes have a flexible sole that makes them ideal for walking on uneven surfaces such as sand and grass. They also slip on and off the foot easily when going in and out of the water. Birkenstock makes sandals available in a multitude of colors to match any bathing suit or cover-up you may have. For more vibrant hues, choose a vivid orange or mint green pair from the Arizona collection. If you’d like a more traditional look, a black or soft toffee pair from the Florida collection could be just what you’re after.
You probably don’t plan to spend your entire beach vacation along the shore, as you may also plan on hitting the boardwalk or shopping malls during your time away. If so, Clark’s shoes for women are ideal for wearing with the dressier outfits you’ll put on while going out and about. Their Vivica Rome collection is perfect for wearing with casual dresses and skirts, and contains only a slight heel that makes them nice for walking in. They also offer several wedge-style shoes such as those in their Caslynn collection that will allow you to show off your new pedicure.
Perhaps you plan to do some extended walking, but still want your feet to be cool and comfortable. If so, the sandals from Merrell would be perfect, because they will provide your feet with a little added cushioning and support. However, if you plan to go hiking or rock climbing, you may want a bit more protection than what sandals provide. In this case, choose a pair from the Allout Blaze collection instead. These are athletic shoes that will give you all the comfort and support you need to be on your feet for an extended period of time.
Does your beach vacation include a romantic dinner or night on the town? If so, don’t forget to throw in a pair of Naturalizer shoes so you’ll be ready for a more formal look. The Danya Taupe shoes are one pair you should consider because of their higher heel and sassy straps that will jazz up any look. To dress up a nice pantsuit, you may prefer the Bradley Black Print shoe instead, which has a slightly shorter heel and more classic lines that make it ideal for pairing with slacks.
These shoes will ensure you are well prepared for anything you encounter during your beach vacation. Be sure to browse our entire selection of Aravon, Cobb Hill and Josef Siebel sandals that will also make nice additions to your summer wardrobe.
