Comfort plus style is always hard to find, but with these Ella booties from Tom’s, you’ll have both. Made of suede with a rubber outsole and 1-inch heel, the twin elastic gore makes for an easy on/off. You’ll be wanting one in every color to go with your entire wardrobe. Plus, Tom’s 1 for 1 program means that when you buy a pair, Tom’s gives a pair to a person in need. Available in 23 colors.

User Review: “Great shoes! This is my first pair of Toms and I have to say I will be a returning customer. I purchased these for a trip to NYC. I knew I was going to be walking around all day and wanted a comfortable bootie. Unfortunately, the shoes were delayed with shipping and I didn’t receive until the day before my trip. I was afraid to wear these because they were not worn in at all. BUT- I gave them a try and these were so comfortable- all day long- no issues whatsoever. I normally wear an 8, ordered an 8.5 and they fit great (I wore two pairs of socks with them).”

Price: Starting at $109.95 on Toms.com

UGG Cheyne Bootie

If you’re turned off by the look of the traditional UGG, the Cheyne booties may be a better option for trying out a pair of UGGs. These are waterproof with a weather lugged sole and with the UGGpure wool lining. You'll be comfy, cozy, and fashionable while you sightsee. Available in 2 colors.

User Review: “I was really hesitant if I should get these boots because I love the Kesey boots so much. But I needed something smaller to fit in my backpack while I'm traveling through Europe this fall. So far, the boots feel comfortable, warm, and supportive. The boots come up about 1.5 inches above my ankle bone, so it's possible for me to tuck my jeans into them if I secure them down with socks. Otherwise, they look cute and stylish with cuffed jeans or under leggings. I would have to say the Kesey boots are still my overall favorite, but this Cheyne boot will be great for backpackers who want something a little smaller or lightweight. I got it in my usual size 10, and the fit is perfect.”

Price: $93.63 on Amazon

User Review: I bought these booties for a trip to New York City and put them on right away with no break-in period. I wore them for 4 days of walking throughout the city and they were very comfortable and provided great support. I bought my usual size in Clark's shoes. I highly recommend it! These booties are now my go-to for a day on my feet.”

If you'd like to get away with wearing a rain boot without anyone knowing you are, in fact, wearing a rain boot, then you may have found yourself the perfect boot for traveling. This rain boot from Jack Rogers looks like your average boot, especially in black, though the other colors may give it away as being a rain boot. But if you are traveling somewhere known for its unexpected weather, these could definitely save the day. Available in 6 colors.

User Review: “These boots are great, especially for the price! I got them in red to bring some sunshine to the rainy weather, but now I am considering the navy blue ones too! They fit true to size- perfect for a pair of socks. I would suggest buying some insoles for them, though, as they have very minimal support on the inside.”

Price: From $53.95 on Amazon

I ordered my regular size, and I have room for regular socks, but I could also wear lighter socks in warmer weather. If you have any doubts about this boot, they are worth the price.”
