The Best Shoes to Pack for a Weekend Getaway

undefinedSelecting a pair of women’s comfortable casual shoes for walking is the most important fashion choice you’ll make while packing for that weekend getaway. The best shoes for travel are lightweight, versatile, stylish and, above all, comfortable.
We’ve put together the following list of our favorite packable spring shoes to inspire your travel wardrobe refresh.
At least one pair of women’s comfort dress shoes is a must for any getaway. Just the thing for dinner and a show, our flattering Ilanna platform wedge heels have a 3-inch heel and go beautifully with a maxi dress or wide-leg pants and a sparkly top. Designed to expand and contract with the contours of your feet, these comfortable heels will have you dancing all night.
Our sporty-chic Nesimah lace-up sandals are wrapped in soft nubuck leather for easy wear all weekend long. Pair them with a cute sundress, or slip them on with your cover-up to walk down to the pool. Besides yellow, they’re also available in black, red and beige.
Our chic Denisse flats, 
with their half-inch heel and patent-pending adaptable memory foam arch support, are perfect for exploring museums and wandering those cute shops on the town square. Pair them with capris and a tunic. Besides red, they’re also available in beige, black and ink.
Slip-On Sneakers
Our sleek, sporty Zohndra women’s comfort shoes are as comfortable as a water sock, yet sophisticated enough to wear out to that music festival. They feature a 1.5-inch heel and full sheep nappa lining for breathability and comfort. Try pairing them with walking shorts and a button-down layered with a scarf.
At L'Amour Des Pieds, we combine a dedication to impeccable design and comfort with unique materials and high-quality craftsmanship — and that will never go out of style.

New Arrivals and Fall Inspiration

Labor Day is behind us and Fall is on the horizon which has us excited to pull out our latest arrivals and get prepared for fall fashion! Since we are not officially into the new season we tend to struggle on how to shift our wardrobe during this time. 

Not to worry- we styled several options for you that you can easily duplicate at home with just a couple of effortless additions to your everyday basics! Sometimes all you need is the addition of a comfortable shoe, layering of colorful scarves or the pop of a rich hue. 

On our first look this is extremely easy to pull off by taking your everyday jeans and solid tops and adding standout accessories and shoes to it. Here we added a plaid scarf, luxe jewelry pieces and our amazing soft kid suede twin gore slip-on, Manette. This ensemble is easy to wear for work, lunch, weekend art shows, or a football games with friends. 


Rich and bold colors are another way to ring in the next season and what better than color than Mulberry. This color is huge for fall and there are no rules to how you wear it! Whether on your fingers, ears, top, lips or shoes- Mulberry is on trend every time. Spotlighted here with an oversized sweater giving you breathability an flattering coverage, chic gold accented details and our Orva, Kid Suede 2 piece pump.


 This next look has to be the most effortless to pull off because it is every girl's best friend- BLACK! Drape yourself from head to toe in black and you cannot go wrong because it is slimming, classic and always chic. With our all black look we accessorized in trendy pieces such as rounded shades, wide rimmed hat with gold details and our, Fanchone, a peep toe pump crafted in the comfort of luxe sheep nappa and elastic crisscross straps.


Plaid is a look every girl can get behind because it is ultra comfortable. It pairs beautifully with your everyday jeans and when you add on luxe leather pieces like our Dareau flat it takes your plaid to a sophisticated level. 


Our Favorite Summer Trends of 2016

It is transition time, which luckily from Spring to Summer is not really that big of a switch of season, but because fashion is ever changing there are new trends and style coming up. At L’Amour Des Pieds we try to create shoes that will offer our busy and on the go woman ultra comfort with soles that mold specifically to your feet creating a unique and personalized fit. With this in mind we watched the runways to see what would fit our L’Amour Des Pieds woman, who values comfort, innovation and the feel of a luxe shoe.

Since innovation is at the forefront of our designer’s mind, we create a collection of shoes that will not only keep you in line with trends, but ahead of them as well. At L’Amour Des Pieds we don’t just want you to “wear a trend” or “buy the latest shoe” we want you to create and wear an experience. So when you purchase a L’Amour Des Pieds shoe what you are purchasing is a lifestyle of comfort, thoughtfulness and uniqueness because our designers care about the quality of your step. So buckle up (no shoe pun intended) and check out some of our most wearable trends we spotted and our shoe spotlights we crafted.

#1 - Stripes Everywhere

This is a big trend for the summer and we love it! Stripes in shirts, pants, dresses, cardigans, bathing suits and shoes of course. Stripes are an easy and classic way to add a touch of high fashion to your shoe. Another tip for this trend is to try mixing stripes in different directions which will give you an elongating appearance. So stripe it up this Summer for all occasions! We have paired this trend with our Ovid leather sandal boasting color blocking stripes.


#2 Chunky Sandals

Now we are speaking our language! We have taken this trend into several different shoes of ours and it is such a favorite. While we all must have comfort sometimes, your everyday sandals need just a little extra something to take it up a notch which is where the added platform comes in. Adding this slight height actually ends up giving you more comfort than being flat on your feet. This is just an added bonus to your everyday strappy go-to sandal!  




#3 Festival Inspired

For all of our free-spirited ladies this one is for you! Even if you are not much of a boho type of woman, try this style because it is not only lovely, but it adds elegance. Slip into floral maxis, romantic laces, and blends of prairie inspired styles that will make you never want the season to end. We paired our festival woman with our lace up, Bellina, and our Audric platform sandal.


#4 Gingham Prep

We saw lots of this all over the runway whether it was gingham or other versions of blow out prints like it. We loved how they took this preppy print and expanded it into high fashion dresses, pants and even just your casual everyday dresses. This print can take you to lunch with friends or even to a downtown event. We paired this prep inspired style with our Bryer slingback and Winoc leather sandal!

Honeymoon Getaway Style

As the height of wedding season begins and brides are busily preparing for the big day another important event follows on its coattails- the honeymoon! The honeymoon is a bride's finish line for all the hard work she has put in and we know she is ready to kick back, feel comfortable, breezy and relaxed.

At L'Amour Des Pieds, creating a total luxe comfort experience is our mission so that you can enjoy the best of both worlds when it comes to comfortable and on trend shoes. We want to reward those feet for a wedding job well done with soles that mold to your feet so when you are sightseeing, shopping or walking the beach you have your own personalized fit.

We hope to take the worry, of what to put on your feet, off your packed to-do list! Because crafting ultra comfortable and luxe women's shoes is the passion of L'Amour Des Pieds, we created a versatile, yet classic, line so you can get all your honeymoon needs in this one stop shop!

The beautiful thing about our ultra luxe comfort line is there is a fit for every occasion for your honeymoon getaway from traveling to date nights. Check out some go-to looks and inspirations you can easily pull together alongside a shoe that will keep you in line with fashion while keeping you ultra comfortable with every step you take.


When you are traveling we know comfort is key but we also know as women, and especially on our honeymoon, we still want to look our "travel best." We want to appear effortless, comfortable but still fashion savvy. We love pairing a subtle graphic tee with a flowy maxi skirt, a statement weekender bag and our must-have L'Amour Des Pieds shoe, Vinvella. This classic slip on sandal is a travel must because of its soft moldable sole that is much appreciated especially when flying. We also love this look because when we get off the plane we are already put together to explore our destination.




As you hit the beach we love a slimming high waisted one-piece bathing suit that stays in place and a cover-up that can also take you conservatively to lunch. With our L'Amour Des Pieds Daney slide you can comfortably go poolside while also styling you well for lunching afterwards. This sandal will be your go-to with its superior comfort and gold metal accents.



Shopping and Sightseeing

For those sightseeing and shopping days you need superior comfort but a stylish picture worthy ensemble. A laid back maxi and light jewelry are a good and easy staple for these all day activities. For your footwear we chose our platform sandal, Audric, because this L'Amour Des Pieds shoe gives you the height you desire as well as trendy details plus all day comfort you dream of.




Nights Out

For date nights with your new hubby pick something airy, light, accessorized and shoes with a touch of height, that are not trying too hard, because after all it is still vacation! This L'Amour Des Pieds wedge is a customer favorite with its t-strap design that keeps your feet secure, fashionable and of course- comfortable!



If you are still on the hunt for your wedding day shoes check out our sister brand, J.Reneé, that has you covered whether you are the bride, the bridesmaid, the mother or the guest!

Dreaming of Spring

So … you’re sick of your sweaters, the novelty of those fantastic boots has worn off, and you’re dreaming of spring. We get it! We are too. The good news is, it’s just around the corner, and it’s time to get in a warm-weather mindset by planning your spring wardrobe!

So take a look at our favorite spring fashion trends, fresh off the runway:


Denim, Denim, and More Denim

Who doesn’t love denim? It’s easy, versatile, and fun – and we haven’t seen this much of it

since the 70’s! Jean dresses, jumpsuits, skirts, shirts, and even gowns were all over the runway.

Have fun with it – anything goes and we love it.

Pair your favorite denim ensemble with our Ivanna leather sandal in cognac. It keeps you on

trend with its strappy criss-cross silhouette and buckle accents.



Spanish Style Influences

Are you dreaming of Spain in the spring? Hints of Spanish culture popped up on runways

everywhere. Think lots of red, beautiful sleeves, tiers and ruffles, and a fair amount of flounce.

It’s bold and romantic. We love.

Freddae in black is tailor-made for this trend! This leather pump with the accent bow will add to

the drama of any Spanish-inspired ensemble.


Lingerie Dressing

Think this trend isn’t for you? Think again - it can be done tastefully. A slip dress, some well-

placed lace on a silky fabric, supple satin, and a hint of sheerness takes lingerie out of the

boudoir and onto the street. Still not convinced? Wear a pair of elevated pj’s - two piece

pajama-inspired sets are beautiful and classy.

Bellina in black or pink is the perfect counter-point to this particular trend – flat and slightly

androgynous is the way to go when a pump would be too much.



Victorian-Inspired Clothing

Ruffles, puffy sleeves, high collars, and florals. These Victorian-era influences are popping up

everywhere. Romantic and lady-like, we think more is more. Who said romance is dead?

Our Florrie shootie in taupe with its high, sloped sides strikes the perfect note with this

romantic trend!


Sparkle and Shine

We love sparkle, so the return of anything shiny and eye-catching is great fun for us to see.

Sequins and other shiny materials have never looked so good! Metallic is having a major

moment and our Winoc in gold/silver snakeprint is all about the sparkle and shine!



Streetwear is an ongoing influence and we love it. It’s easy and comfortable and sassy. Throw

on a bomber jacket, borrowed from the boys, or a pair of leather trousers with our pitch-

perfect Trinette. Too cool for school.


We’re ready for spring … how about you?
