kealux Multifunctional Sneakers

Packable Sneakers

When you’re traveling, it’s always nice to have an activewear shoe, but the bulkiness is often a hassle when trying to pack. These shoes from kealux are primarily a water and water sports shoe, but they double as a great choice for cycling, jogging, yoga, and more. The 8 air holes not only make them a quick drying option for the beach, but keep your feet from sweating too much while moving around. They are flexible enough to scrunch up perfectly into your suitcase.

Amazon User Review: “I've never heard of this brand before but these shoes were great. They feel like they are constructed well, especially given the affordable price. The soles are thick enough that they provide enough protection that when you're walking on the beach and on lava rocks that your feet remain comfortable but thin enough that you still have dexterity under water. The soles had pretty good traction and the colored soles were also a fun bonus. They dry quick and do their job well. I was really happy with these shoes.”

Price: Starting at $16.99 on Amazon
