From seashore to side street, we’ve found the best walking shoes for your European holiday….

When it comes to good walking shoes, it used to be that you had to trade comfort for chic.  If you wanted to saunter along the promenade, tour the vineyard or explore city streets without rubbing, aching, sore feet, you needed to invest in the kind of sensible footwear that style forgot. 

At FitFlop we believe you shouldn’t have to choose between feeling great and looking great.  We’ve got shoes that work at every temperature (Greek heat or British drizzle), shoes that work on every terrain (Ibiza Town’s cobbled streets or St Tropez sand) and shoes for every occasion (dinner in Monte Carlo or on an Italian glampsite). And shoes that always look good. Full stop. 

Our styles are multi tasking too. You can dress them up or down. Which means you need to pack less. Which means no excess baggage charges. Which means more money to spend on the gelato/new basket/rosé 

You’re welcome.  

Shore thing: The best walking shoes for the beach. 

 Beach shoe checklist?  Needs to be sand and sea proof, comfortable enough for long walks along the shore and stylish enough to hit the bar. These shoes tick every box. 

One of our most popular styles for a reason. Impact pillows and arch support make them vastly more comfortable than traditional flip-flops. And the style is the ultimate in laid back chic.

Light and airy, these sporty style flip flops have squishy under foot cushioning that make easy work of pebbles, sandy lanes and coastal paths.

Urban explorer: The best shoes for exploring a city 

City breaks require shoes made for walking. Enter FitFlop sneakers. Carefully designed to keep feet sweet whatever your step count, they can cope with inclement weather and packed pavements, plus protect you from the commuter crush.

Modern and minimalistic in style, the Airmesh guarantees access all areas. They feel weightless, have built in arch contour and are made up in a breathable fabric that guarantees all day cool.   

This on trend, paired back design can take you from museum, to Trattoria to hotel bar. Block colour, with a flash of snake on the heel to add edge, the Anatomicush midsoles guarantee all day comfort.
