1. Vans Classic Slip-On Sneaker

You can't go wrong with a loafer in nicer or formal events on your trip.

These shoes are the perfect balance of structure and softness: The 100% Italian leather is thick and sturdy but soft with wear.

For the first handful of times you wear them, you won't want to rely on this pair for long walks or walking-heavy activities. One piece of advice when purchasing the Everlane Modern Loafer: size up half a size because it is a narrow fit. But because these shoes are 100% leather, they wear well overtime after breaking them in.

The clean lines and slight heel make it a cinch to pair with jeans or a dress.

This is a fresh spin on the classic Mary Jane silhouette. These Mary Jane shoes are made of leather uppers and synthetic soles with a cushioned insole. The strap can be easily removed and slipped on.

The textile lining keeps the feet soft and breathable. The footbed is pigskin and textile-lined EVA foam cushioned for all-day comfort and support. The faux pewter trim is merely a decoration.
