As the weather warms up, ensure the entire family is ready for your next adventure with comfy new travel shoes on sale from Zappos. Whether you need running shoes to sprint to the airport gate (hands full of kids’ snacks and bags, of course), cushioned sneakers to hit the amusement park and stand in endless lines, or supportive sandals to explore your local area with a low-stakes staycation, the right shoes are key for enjoying travel as a family.
Fortunately, Zappos has styles for the whole crew as deeply discounted as 50 percent off and as always, they offer free shipping and a full-year return policy for both happy shopping and even happier traveling.
Best Running Shoes
Are you hoping to keep up your runs while traveling or just want a shoe that offers maximum support and comfort? Zappos has got you: Hop on over to grab a pair of the famous Hokas, known for being ultra-comfortable, with one style an impressive 50 percent off, or pick up my personal favorite running shoe, the Brooks Ghost 14, with a $40 savings, and the perennial favorite Asics Gels everyone raves about that feature gel cushioning for even long-distance running comfort. Even kids who want to keep up (or adults rocking those smaller sizes) can get in on the running fun in some Adidas Tensaurs.

If you’re hoping to remain a little more stylish while still keeping comfortable, try slipping on a pair of high-back New Balances—available in black and tan, a classic leather Naturalizer that also comes in wide sizes, or a classic pair of cotton Keds that are $20 off right now.

Best Slip-on Shoes
Whether you have your hands full traveling with kids or just full of luggage and the necessary snacks to get through a long flight, slip-on shoes can be incredibly convenient for traveling. Personally, we’re huge fans of breathable slip-on shoes, slides that won’t fall off thanks to adjustable lacing, and for a studier option, these slip-on sneakers that come in seven different colors. And of course, for kids, you can’t go wrong with a pair of classic Vans or waterproof shoes perfect for a day at the beach (or just a really big puddle in the parking lot).
