Have you heard of Charleston Shoe Company? As of a few months ago, I hadn’t, but this American-born shoe company is making great strides (sure, pun intended…why not?) in the travel shoe space.
Their affordable, comfort-focused shoes are on-trend and versatile, plus almost all their styles will pack down easily in any carry-on.
So what do I mean by ‘versatile’? I tried Charleston Shoe Company’s Justice Wedge Sandal, which is ideal for warm-weather climate designations, or evenings out in urban environments.
Plus, it goes from day to night effortlessly, with features that make it casual enough for city walking or museum-hopping, but trendy enough to look good after dark, too.
The wedge style is comfortable while still giving a bit of sophistication to the look, and the straps are thick elastic bands, which are sleek but feel great after a long day of travel.
I’ve stashed mine in my bag for evenings out after active days, so I only need to pack one pair of sandals after making room for my bulky hiking boots. They would also be perfect for cruises, as they could go from day trips to evening dining.
I got a pair in the linen color, to remain as neutral as possible (and go with the most outfits), but Charleston Shoe Company is offering the Justice in a ton of colors, from classic black to coral, red, and dual tones.
The Justice is $120 on the website, or can be found for a few bucks less on Amazon.
If you don’t need a sandal style, but want to try Charleston Shoe Company’s versatile line, try their Aphrodite closed-toe shoes, which pair perfectly with leggings, tights, and dresses, as well as trousers on travel days.
The Aphrodite comes in a rainbow of colors, and is a slip-on shoe that can stand hours of walking, and is easy to slip on and off in TSA lines on air travel days. Pick up the Aphrodite for $99.
Either style can be found at various sites online as well as boutique-style brick and mortar stores, but if you’re in doubt as to size or style, definitely call the Charleston Shoe Company toll-free number, because their customer service is really good!
