A FASHION expert has unveiled the pair of shoes she’s traveled the world in.
Katie Jackson is a fashion guru who has traveled to far corners of the world.
In a recent article in Travel + Leisureshe gushed about the must-have shoe that has been one of her travel essentials for a decade.
Katie bought the sandals on a trip to Hawaii after forgetting to pack her own pair.
She wrote: “At $75 (£59) they were way more than I wanted to spend but the seller assured me they weren’t just any sandals. They were the OluKai Ohana Quick-Dry Flip Flops.”
Seven years later, Katie bought her first pair of flip flops and bought back a second pair.
She added, “I’ve had my second pair for almost two years now and although I’ve worn them to seven continents this year alone, they show no signs of wear.”
The Olukai Ohana Quick-Dry Flip Flops feature a cushioned drop-in footbed that provides arch support.
They’re also water-repellent and quick-drying, which means they can get thoroughly soaked but dry out quickly.
The sandals come in a variety of sizes and colors including black, white,and navy.
They have a 4.7/5 star rating from over 7,500 reviews on Amazon and prices start at £73 for a pair.
One person wrote: “I bought a pair of these 10 years ago and have never looked back.”
“I originally thought they were too expensive for flip flops, but these are great!”
Another added: “I love these flip flops so much they have a nice curve and are very comfortable.”
A third person said: “I’ve hiked with them and worn them almost every day throughout the summer for the past few years and they’ve held up really well.”
But those aren’t the only sandals vacationers rave about. Earlier this year, a woman posted a video about the shoes she’s traveled the world in.
In a video she posted to TikTok, Lexi (@lovelylivingtravel) raved about the Teva sandal.
She said: “These shoes are simply the best. The bottom is like a sneaker so you have the support and traction when hiking.”
Teva sandals are also waterproof and have an adjustable Velcro strap.
She also said they were “easy to clean” and clipped easily to the bag.
Sun Travel also tested the shoes themselves – and was also enthusiastic.
And that’s why you should never wear sandals to the airport.
