What makes a great travel shoe? Easy on-off, light weight, all-day comfort, street style that can go anywhere. And, for winter climes: stain-resistant waterproofing. The new Fall styles from 2010 GoLite Footwear fulfill all those requirements and more to become literally the only shoes you’ll need for any adventure.

Adding four new styles for Fall, GoLite Footwear truly offers something for everyone with the travel bug, including the new Women’s Venture Lite with BareTech technology and the go-anywhere Journey Lite. For men: Retro-inspired Endeavor Lite, and the Winter Lite for urban settings, or anytime you need waterproofing + style.

GoLite Footwear travel shoes are equally at home in the airport, on the path less traveled or exploring the ins and outs of the local specialty dish. The days of taking multiple pairs of shoes on a trip is over. Leave all that extra room for souvenirs.
