Consider the travel environment
First, think about where you will be traveling.
If you will be visiting mostly cities, you will need stylish and comfortable travel shoes. If you don’t plan on hiking there’s no point buying hiking boots because they are heavy and bulky and will mark you out as a tourist straight away.
If you love exercise but forget to pack a pair of trainers, you will be miserable.
Carefully think about where you will be traveling and what activities you will likely end up doing.
