Eastin Men's Boots: In the words of Kentucky-based Keen Footwear, the manufacturer of this product, the Eastin line is "built for city stompin' urban travelers," and if the shoe fits, wear it. These handsome lace-up boots, which weigh 2 pounds, 8 ounces, boast leather from LWG-certified tanneries that reduce water use and eliminate wastewater pollution in the tanning process. In addition, they feature PFC-free water repellency; probiotic foot beds that break down odor and sweat without heavy metals or hazardous chemicals; solvent-free, air-injected soles; and glue-free construction that fuses the upper to the sole with "zero chance of separating." They are available in black or brown, sizes 7 to 15. $190; https://www.keenfootwear.com.

Body Glide Foot Glide: If a journey of 1,000 miles truly starts with the first step, it is the wise traveler who takes along this soothing and protective foot balm for the long haul. Formulated to roll on the skin to create a grease-free, invisible barrier to help prevent chafing and other foot irritations such as blisters and raw skin that often accompany on-the-go sightseeing, Foot Glide is water and perspiration resistant. The balm, which will not harm your clothes or shoes, does not contain petroleum, lanolin or mineral oils. What it does contain are apricot kernel oil, leaf extract and vitamins A and C. Child safe and vegan approved, Foot Glide washes off with soap and water. $7.99; https://www.bodyglide.com.
