If your first vacation is going to involve a lot of walking—or even if you plan on getting a run in here or there—you’re definitely going to want to bring a pair of athletic shoes on your trip. If luggage space is at a premium, you can even wear them on your drive or flight to ensure that your journey is as comfortable as the destination.

A decent pair of athletic shoes should keep your feet cushioned and comfortable, and be made of lightweight, breathable material to avoid sweaty feet during your travels. If nothing else, your partner will thank you for not stinking up your hotel room or rental unit with an ill-fitting or ill-conceived pair of shoes.
