As the weather continues to warm up and spring makes itself known, we know our readers are looking for the best shoes for travel. Once again Zappos’ Senior Running/Cycling Footwear Buyer Jewels Busenberg has come to the rescue! This time, she’s sharing what she considers to be the best sneaker for travel (but it’s also a great shoe to wear all spring and summer long)! Meet the On Cloud 5 Coast Slip-On Sneaker.

With warmer weather fast approaching, we’re seeing more people choosing slip-ons and flip-flops as their footwear of choice,” Busenberg explains. “And while these are fantastic choices for the spring or summer, there’s one stylish, lightweight, and packable shoe that’s perfect for anything happening this season — the On Cloud 5 Coast!

We’ve talked about On’s sneakers before. Busenberg elaborates: “On has several iterations in their Cloud series including the Cloud 5, originally made for urban exploration, Cloud 5 Waterproof, and the Cloud 5 Terry, which features soft-touch fabrics. Known as On’s lightest shoe in the collection, the On Cloud 5 Coast guarantees you comfort and versatility.”  

But Busenberg’s preference? The On Cloud 5 Coast.

On Cloud 5 Coast: The Most Comfortable Slip-On Shoes for Travel

As a traveler, I’m often considering my mental checklist before packing an item,” Busenberg shares. “The On Cloud 5 Coast always passes as it’s comfortable enough to wear all day given the CloudTec cushioning, it’s easily packable only taking up as much space as a slim flip flop, and it’s versatile when it comes to style.”

What makes the On Cloud 5 Coast unique is that it has a shape-shifting form allowing the user to wear it as a regular shoe or as a slip-on thanks to its fully collapsible kick-down heel,” Busenberg says.

More to Love

  • Sweat-wicking sock liner allows you to forgo socks
  • Rubber-reinforced outsole
  • On’s Patented CloudTec cushioning
  • Multiple colorways! Busenberg loves the white (pictured), but they also come in hay-ivory, heather-chambray, and ivory-acacia

Customers Agree: “I love the pull on speed lace style, and these are incredibly light. I am traveling to Europe this summer so these will be a perfect packable set of comfy shoes for all the walking on cobblestones. The periwinkle color is absolutely gorgeous and different. It is subtle so can be worn with many different colors and styles.”

In addition to being the perfect shoe to wear when you travel, these sneakers have a bunch of other features you’ll love, including being super simple to style! “On a recent trip, I styled three different outfits with this shoe,” Busenberg says. “It’s so easy to mix and match. Some reliable outfits that look great include leggings and a yoga tank, a bathing suit and a cover-up, and jeans shorts and a white tank. I often wear them to my kid’s sports practices or slip them on as I run out the door.

Busenberg adds: Also, a hot tip when it comes to these shoes — they have a rubber-enforced outsole to help prevent against slipping if you happen to walk in water!
