  • Words by Mr Simon Crompton

For those of us who like to limit the time we spend in airports by travelling with one piece of luggage, bulky shoes are often the first items of a proper wardrobe to be jettisoned at packing stage. They are usually heavy and take up too much room. Winter boots are particularly challenging. Ever try to wrestle a pair of wellies into a carry-on bag?

But summer footwear – sandals, espadrilles, boat shoes – is more weight- and space-efficient, which means you can pack in more pairs without falling foul of the check-in scales. Here are some summer shoes that won't weigh you down. Keep calm and carry-on.
