People nowadays are wearing sneakers with everything. And from TSA checkpoints to Thai temples, lace-up sneakers slow down a traveler on the go. That’s where the slip-on kick comes in the save the day.

Somewhere along the line, women, in their infinite wisdom, decided it was OK for women to wear sneakers with everything, including dresses. Prior to this serendipitous sartorial switch, ladies of earlier eras used to get to where they were going in sneakers and then change when they got there. As travelers, we are delighted to leave our kicks on instead of having to kick them off, no matter what outfit we’re wearing. That said, the requirements for a travel sneaker are different from those of an everyday life sneaker. They need to be lightweight so as not to weigh down your bag but still stand up to a day of vigorous exploration. The must be easily removable for airport security, Thai temples, and any other place where a quick unshoeing is required. Hence, lacelessness is a key specification of the travel sneaker. You should be able to wear them without socks because socks are just another item to pack and lug around. And because you don’t automatically surrender your fashion sense when you cross a border, they should work with everything, including dresses. Here are some of the best (and cutest) slide on sneakers for travel.
