Slip-on sneakers

Ilse Jacobsen slip-on sneakers are traveler-approved

Every traveler knows that a comfortable pair of sneakers is essential. While there are a host of silhouettes to choose from, including high-tops, low-tops, and platforms, one of our favorite options for traveling has to be slip-on sneakers. Not only are they generally less bulky than other styles, making them easier to store, but their laceless design makes them super easy to slip on and off when going through airport security.


Nordstrom shoppers found the perfect pair in the perforated Tulip 129 slip-on sneakers by Ilse Jacobsen. Besides being “instantly comfortable”, the cute kicks also feature a cool scalloped perforated design that gives them an edgy look. The uppers are made from an ultra-soft material which is stitched onto the flexible rubber soles which provide excellent traction.




Perforations boost airflow and circulation, making the shoes super breathable – so you don’t have to worry about your feet overheating, even on hot summer days. Padded insoles are removable and the sneakers have one inch platforms to give you height.

The slip-ons are so comfortable that even flight attendants love them. One reviewer wrote: “I was on a flight recently, and the stewardess saw my shoes and said, ‘I have the same!’ She loves them too!” Sizes range from 6 to 14 and there are nine gorgeous colors to choose from, including black, navy, army green and light blue.


While most styles will set you back $94 a pair, you can pick up the pretty blush coral floral print option for just $84, though only limited sizes are still in stock. No matter what color you choose, you’ll definitely want to have a pair in your travel wardrobe before your next trip.
