Travel Tip(s)
Fat Cat slip on light weight sneakers to wear when going through airport security, casual shoes for travel

What shoes to wear at airport security

Wearing wedges when going through airport security almost certainly ends up in having to take your shoes off. Wedges are seen as a suspicious area to hide items. And if you want to move through security faster, and not hold up the travelers behind you, wear slip-on sneakers or trainers with zips. I absolutely adore the Fat Cat slip-on sneakers because they are comfy, and lightweight, with no laces, no zips, and they fit almost any color I wear!
