Hey y’all, Happy Friday! On today’s blog post I want to talk about my favorite pair of sneakers! White sneakers make the perfect street style ensemble. They’re even better to pack when you’re exploring a new city because the right pair can match with ANYTHING. When searching for sneakers, there are so many different styles that it can be overwhelming. The 2 most important things for me with any shoe is 1) comfort and 2) price. Hopefully this post is a helpful resource when it comes time to start traveling again and if you are looking for the best pair of sneakers for travel!
Last year when I was packing for a two week trip in Europe I knew that I wanted to wear cute summer clothes but didn’t want to be restricted to wearing regular running shoes. I also knew that my soon-to-be 30 year old butt chooses comfort over pain these days. I ordered a bunch of other different styles online and ended up keeping the Reebok Club C 85. All of the online reviews were beaming and when I finally had the chance to put them on it became apparent why.
Now I’ll be honest, I already had 3 other pairs of white sneakers at the time (I have a problem and I am very well aware of it LOL). The Adidas Superstar’s are cute and look great with dresses but they are so flat that they start to hurt my feet after a few hours. The Fila Disruptor’s are honestly the coolest shoes I own however they are chunky and heavy to walk in. Lastly, the Adidas Ultraboost’s are super comfortable running shoes but they give more of an athletic look when you wear them with regular clothes. So clearly I had a first world problem that I needed to solve.
Here are my thoughts on why the Reebok Club C 85 is the best pair of sneakers for travel:
Style & Sizing
Reebok has a few different sneaker styles that are very popular but the reason I was drawn to this pair was because of its’ vintage look. The off white/cream color is stylish and also practical because white will always get dirty! Also the toe shape is the perfect round, not too square or narrow, while still giving you a little lift. It is the perfect shape to style with almost all pieces of clothing. I found these shoes to be true to size although some reviews say they run small. I initially bought 2 sizes, my normal size and one size up, and I’d recommend you do the same.
I usually take 2 pairs of sneakers when traveling. One for outdoor activities and the other to wear casually. I accidentally wore the Reebok Club C 85’s on a 5 hour hike up the Austrian Alps (future post coming soon) and surprisingly made it back down without wanting to die! I’m definitely not recommending that you wear these shoes instead of proper running or hiking shoes LOL. All I’m saying is that if a pair of sneakers can take you all the way up to the top of the Austrian Alps and last you 2 weeks of constant walking around it deserves an award.. or in my case, a blog post 😉
The price of these sneakers are towards the lower end of all the white sneakers that I own. Compared to the Ultraboost’s that are close to 200 dollars, the Reebok Club C 85’s are 75 bucks and it is the best 75 dollars I’ve ever spent.
Here are a few ways I’ve worn these shoes with skirts, leggings, jeans, and shorts!
Hopefully you found this post helpful! I swear by these shoes and I wish I had found them sooner. If you’re looking for a new pair of sneaks that are cute, stylish, comfortable and affordable I highly highly recommend the Reebok Club C 85s! They truly are the best pair of sneakers for travel. Do you own these shoes or have any other recommendations? Leave me a note in the comments below! Have a wonderful weekend friends and stay safe!!
