If you are a frequent flyer, you know the rules of packing light and probably travel with carry-on luggage so as not to be a victim of lost luggage. Not to get personal, but maybe your feet swell a little during flight? I’ve found a pair of travel shoes that are lightweight, comfortable, fashionable and flexible. The folks who design Arcopédico Shoes asked me to review their LS Shocks travel shoe.
Comfortable travel shoe
We’ve all seen what happens to a half full bottle of liquid shampoo after our luggage has spent time in a non-pressurized airplane compartment. The air expands in the bottle, forcing the liquid out, resulting in a mess of goop in your luggage.
While airplanes transport us in pressurized cabins, our bodies still feel the pressure. As pressure increases with altitude in a plane, our feet tend to swell. The LS Shock Arcopédico Shoe protects feet with flexible, circulation-supporting shoes. With its sock-like fit on the top of the foot, blood-flow is increased, which makes for happy feet.
Made in Portugal
Handmade in Portugal, Arcopédico Shoes feel like you are wearing a bedroom slipper. The knit upper with twin arch-supporting construction helps prevent foot fatigue while traveling. The knit shoes are washing machine friendly – although I have not washed my shoes yet! Arcopédico Shoes have slip-resistant polyurethane soles lined with anti-microbial SanSmell deodorizing technology that won’t leave you with stinky, sweaty feet.
Family owned Arcopédico Shoes
Arcopédico Shoes is a family owned business that was formed in 1983 by Manuel and Virginia Simas. During a trip to Portugal, the Simas realized that they needed to create a successful travel shoe, one that was flexible, reliable, supportive and ultra-comfortable. After over 30 years in the business of crafting shoes for world traveling women, Arcopédico has created the perfect line of footwear.
