Holiday travel made easier – The perfect shoe for flying past TSA

Holiday footwear can be surprisingly tricky to navigate, especially when we throw travel into the mix. After all, there’s only so much we can pack. But we still need it to get us through everything from long walks with Christmas light shows to New Year’s Eve cocktail parties.

And then, of course, there are those pesky shoes-off TSA inspections.

Sure, many swear by Crocs for travel. Lightweight, comfortable and easy to put on and take off, they certainly seem to tick all the boxes you need for travel. But unless your holiday fashion goal is to look like Justin Beiber (at his best), they don’t bode well for everything else.

Instead, you’re probably looking for more of a hybrid – something that can combine the look of a dress shoe, but still maintain the comfort of a sneaker or a Croc. But does such a shoe exist?

Believe it or not, it does — meet The Pacific by Ponto Footwear.

HOT DEAL — 25% OFF: For a limited time, Ponto Footwear is offering a Black Friday promotion of 25% off all men’s and women’s shoes. This discount is strictly valid until November 29th. To take advantage of this offer:

The secret is in the materials

Sneaker materials have come a long way over the years. Today we have everything from carbon plates and pressurized air bubbles in the soles to ultra-breathable and lightweight uppers. But for all our advancements in sneaker technology, we’ve left the classic dress shoe behind.

This is where The Pacific by Ponto Footwear makes a difference.

Combining the timeless look of a dress shoe with the material technology of the modern era, The Pacific is the perfect shoe to keep you looking and feeling your best. And, as a nice little kicker, your eco-conscience will be relieved to know that they are made entirely from recycled and bio-based materials.

The result is a shoe that proves that looks can be deceiving. To the casual observer, you look like you’re wearing an ordinary pair of dress shoes. But from the moment you put them on, your feet will tell you a whole different story.

Your only partner for festive (and business) travel

The magic of the Pacific begins in the sole. Not a strip of leather or hard rubber bottom to be seen here. Instead, Ponto Footwear has opted for a sugarcane-based foam material that is so far removed from the traditional dress shoe sole that the only thing they have in common is the look.

Essentially, The Pacific allows you to forget about your stiff, unsupportive, and downright uncomfortable dress shoes this holiday season. Instead, you get a lightweight, perfectly cushioned companion to keep you nimble (not to mention insanely comfortable) as you tackle everything from sprinting between airport terminals to standing on your feet all day.

All of this is then finished off with a regenerated Tencel fiber lining on the inside, meaning you get all the odor and sweat absorption you’d expect from a good pair of sneakers, while still looking good.

Don’t forget – even if you can get away with wearing The Pacific sans socks, the TSA’s Fashion Dos and Don’ts page recommends that you keep your socks on while going through airport security!

High-Fashion upper to keep you dry and warm

Even if you have a penchant for the Croc look, it’s not ideal as we head into the cold winter months. Neither is the typical mesh-topped sneaker. On the other hand, The Pacific, with its water-repellent recycled leather upper, is just what you need to keep your feet warm and dry this holiday season.

And just like those sugarcane foam soles, The Pacific’s uppers are also lined with the same regenerated Tencel fiber. So you can rest easy knowing that your feet will not only stay dry, but also stay 100% odor free when you take your shoes off for that TSA inspection.

Feel good, inside and out, with Ponto shoes

Yes, the Pacific by Ponto footwear is a ridiculously comfortable and beautiful shoe. But all of that counts for nothing if the company behind it can’t live up to its social and environmental responsibilities. Fortunately, Ponto Footwear proudly advocates ethical, eco-friendly shoemaking in everything from the materials to the logistics of the supply chain.

To achieve this, the company is deeply involved in a number of actions that align with its strong social and environmental values.

  • Soles4Souls: To keep shoes out of landfills while empowering entrepreneurs in developing countries, Ponto Footwear will send you $20 off your next pair of Ponto shoes when you send your used pair to a regional Soles4Souls distribution center. The entrepreneurs who receive your shoes will then reuse them.
  • 1% for conservation: Ponto donates 1% of its turnover to the protection of the oceans.
  • Fighting the fast fashion trend: Ponto Footwear firmly believes in owning fewer, higher quality products rather than the current trend of cheap, disposable fashion. To support this value, it not only creates versatile shoes suitable for all occasions, but also ensures that the materials and construction techniques result in a durable shoe that lasts.
  • Climate neutral: Ponto Footwear has partnered with Flexport’s Carbon Offset Program to offset all carbon emissions that inevitably result from shipping a product to a customer. This carbon offset starts with international freight and continues until the final delivery to your door.
