BauBax Travel Shoes

“Travel shoes aren’t a thing,” said one InsideHook editor recently. Not true: BauBax, who once had a travel jacket snag over $9 million in crowdfunding on Kickstarter (a clothing record at the time), just launched a pair of comfy kicks called (natch) Travel Shoes by BauBax, with each pair made from all-natural materials (coconut, merino wool, bamboo, etc.) are also everything-resistant, breathable, lightweight and super flexible for packing. Available in dressy, loungy or “breezy” styles, the shoes start at $79 during preorders, down from $150. And they ship in prime travel season: December.
