It’s that wonderful time of year again — the time of year when Oprah lets us all in on her list of favorite products. This list, curated by Oprah herself, compiles all of the clothing, books, tech, food, accessories, and more that she deems the crème de la crème in today’s shopping market — all the things she needs. So, obviously, we need them too.
Seeing as Oprah is constantly boarding planes and crossing oceans to do all of the fabulous things she does, a handful of her favorite products are exactly the kind of things that every discerning traveler needs.
This year, our favorite pick is Athletic Propulsion Labs' Techloom Bliss Knit Running Shoe. Let’s face it: we’ve all run frantically through the airport. It’s happened before, and it’ll probably happen again. That’s where Oprah’s new favorite sneaker comes in, an adorable performance-textile slip-on number that’s ideal for getting from point A to point B with as little hassle as possible.
Inspired by the shape of an actual feather (so you can imagine how light they are to travel with), these sneakers are made from high-performance materials and APL Propelium cushioning for extra cloud-like comfort. For those who have no time to bother with laces, there’s a convenient elastic band to ensure the shoe stays put while you’re en route to your destination. Available in six Oprah-approved colorways (and even more over at Nordstrom), this runner is all about the intersection of chic and practical.
And lucky for us, Oprah’s stylish travel reccs don’t stop at these sneakers — you can also find this chic cross-body bag (which is available in about a million different colors), an affordable, fold-up nylon travel bag that any frequent flier simply needs, and a cozy, minimalist neck pillow that will no doubt alleviate any kinks you usually get from in-flight sleep.
Oprah, we owe you.
