If you’re considering wearing those high heels on your flight, think again. There are no seats or chairs available on a hot air balloon trip. Wear your most comfortable pair of athletic shoes or some cushy flip flops if you want to avoid hurting your feet.

1 to 1.5 hours is the average duration of a hot air balloon ride. Nobody wants to spend that much time in uncomfortable shoes. Prepare ahead of time and get the most out of your first hot air balloon journey.
