Spotlight On: Airport-Friendly Footwear

Whether you’re about to embark on an overseas flight for vacation or a cross-country trip for work, the airport security checkpoint can be one of the most grueling parts of the travel process. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with airport-friendly styles to go with everything from athleisure to workwear, and are sure to have you breezing through security in comfort. Bonus: you won’t want to change out of them when you arrive.

Women’s Let’s Walk Classic Knit Sneaker ($120)

Our #1 tip when choosing shoes for the airport: opt for slip-ons. The
Let’s Walk® Women’s Classic Knit sneakers feature elastic laces and will quickly slip on and off in the security line, while the Integrated Motion Technology system returns energy to your feet as you navigate the airport. This of-the-moment style features mixed materials and playful details for a unique take on athleisure, and can be paired with anything from breezy dresses to laid-back leggings.

Total Motion Bow Ballet Flat ($110)

For something more dressed up, The Total Motion Bow Ballet flats are sophisticated enough to wear to a business meeting but versatile enough to dress down with denim. These flats feature a slight hidden wedge for a little lift, and truTECH® and truTECH+® for all-day comfort. They’re also super lightweight and flexible to easily stash in your bag or suitcase – and the TPU shanks won’t set off the metal detector.

Men’s Let’s Walk Mesh Bungee Sneaker ($140)

For a casual men’s shoe to pair with joggers or jeans, throw on the Let’s Walk Bungee Sneaker. The on-trend mesh upper will keep you looking (and feeling) cool on a stuffy flight, while the adjustable bungee closure allows for a personalized fit (and easy on/off). The multi-layer comfort system is engineered to create superior cushion, absorb shock and return energy to the wearer every step of the way.

Total Motion Sport Dress Penny ($130)

The Total Motion Sport Dress penny is much more than your average slip-on. The sleek silhouette will keep you looking sharp while the motion-oriented design elements like EVA footbeds, TPU molded stability plates and moisture-wicking linings will make you the most comfortable man at the airport. Wear them with anything from your favorite travel suit to jeans and a blazer.
