The holiday season is here, this is the time everyone takes a break and is ready to tan in a beautiful sunny paradise somewhere. Our social media feeds are probably by now filled with our favourite celebs and influencers on vacation or on their way to their holiday destinations.
But have you ever paid attention to the footwear they wear when in the airport or on their way to the airport? The footwear is usually very basic and comfortable. Rihanna for example was last seen wearing a pair of white sneakers when coming out of the airport, Katie Holmes would wear simple loafers, e.t.c. and these are celebs that are most likely traveling in a private plane with fewer security checks.
When it comes to commoners like you and me, the security check headache where you have to take off your shoes, put them back on, and thank your God if you don’t reach your destination with billion tons of bacteria in your feet. If you’re a late comer at the airport, you’d know the importance of wearing the right footwear that’s great for running when at the airport and if you’re a germophobe, you’d understand the importance of wearing a pair of socks with the most comfortable footwear that won’t beep during security check.
Summer airport shoes should be comfortable, breathable, and easy to take off and slip back on during security checks. It’s also advisable to keep a pair of compression socks in your handbag, with that you can easily use them to protect your feet from fungal infections during security checks, use to keep your feet warm, and prevent them from swelling while flying.
Another good tip about footwear when traveling is to also ensure you can wear them while at the airport and again at your destination, make sure they carry no metal and make sure you can run in them and when opting for sneakers ensure they are slip-on with no laces, with that you can save yourself some time at the security check counter.
