El Naturalista, a socially-responsible footwear company based in Pamplona, Spain, joins the ranks of Birkenstock, Simple, and Keen in producing some of the most comfortable travel footwear I’ve ever owned.
The Meteo features full-grain, vegetable-tanned uppers, but the secret is in the sole’s anatomical design. Ideal for collapsing arches (there’s a removable insole you can swap out for your custom one) and pancake-footed adventurers, the Meteo will hold up on planes, trains, bikes, and all the walking your European sabbatical will entail. Available in a variety of cool colors, from mediterranean blue to conservative black.
