Finding a shoe that's comfortable, versatile, and packs easily makes me feel like Captain Ahab searching for my Moby Dick. But finally, Hobes has figured it out.
Made with a 100% leather upper and flexible rubber sole, Hobes shoes defy what I thought a travel shoe could be. What I love about these shoes is that they truly fold flat and feel like you're wearing slippers. The leather is incredibly soft, and for as unstructured as they are, they still feel sturdy.
These are the perfect travel shoes. They have enough stretch in them if you want to wear socks with them (which I would recommend if you plan to wear these through airport security) but are also great without. If you're the kind of person that never knows what shoes to pack and then takes up very valuable luggage space with too many pairs, Hobes are the answer.
