PART of my job means travelling the world, and I've racked up thousands of miles over the years.

But I also hate travelling with a suitcase, no matter how long I am on holiday for.

From lugging it through the airport to having to pay for it – I've learned from experience how to always travel with hand luggage.

However, making sure I only take one bag has become a skill in itself, meaning I only ever pack the essentials.

And one way I do this is by packing just one pair of shoes, which work for all occasions.

It can be hard to pack lightly when it comes to footwear, as trainers and high heels don't exactly pack down lightly.

Clever travel item costing 83p that gets you more space in your hand luggage


So last summer I invested in a pair of Teva sandals – and haven't looked back.

Once seen as 'granny sandals' thanks to their thick soles and supportive, if not a bit clunky, straps, they are now back in fashion.

The Teva sandals have taken me from breakfast to dinner, and are the comfiest shoes I've ever owned.

The popular sandal is great for the day, either with shorts and t-shirts or a casual summer dress, and is ideal for walking through cobbley cities.

Beware the Teva Tanline too

I've even managed to go on an impromptu hike with them, without a single roll of the ankle.

And as the evening comes, they work with smarter dresses too, thanks to the current trends shunning the stilettos of my teen years.

They are now the only pairs of shoes I take in my suitcase.

They have taken me through everything from Spanish city breaks to Caribbean break breaks – and are still in great nick too despite their hundreds of steps.

I always opt for a black or neutral colour, but there are hundreds of styles, prints and colours to choose from.

Even better, many are on sale right now with some starting from £21 on ASOS.

Just beware of the Teva Tanline – which makes your feet look rather grubby – and you won't win awards for fashion when wearing them with your flight socks.

But once you tell yourself you don't need your heels or trainers, you will feel a lot lighter, both mentally – and in your suitcase.
