Default Stylish Walking Shoe

Will be taking an overseas trip with lots of walking. Other than athletic shoes, what is a stylish, comfortable walking shoe?

Buy dark color. Nothing white, designates a tourist besides white shoes went out in the 80's.

Check out Mephisto and Naot. When Googling Mephisto, be sure to google "mephisto shoes", not just Mephisto.

Don't know if these are stylish but they are very comfortable. I have two pair, one greyish and one brown and take them on cruises. They are great for walking and as far as I'm concerned, dressy enough for dinner.. lol

Mephisto’s are great shoes but be prepared to spend upwards to $300. Don’t know about Naot

Sketcher slip on shoes are the best.

I have a pair on New Balance Hiking Sneakers & they have plenty of support. They are Grey with a bit of blue trim. Good strong sole for the cobblestone streets.

If you like sandals, try Keen. I have walked miles in them. Great support and nice looking styles as well. I bought them on line and they are true to size.

Default The Walking Company has stores in the Tampa area.

The store team will have you stand on a foot analyzer that measures your pressure points to determine the best type of support for your feet. They offer a wide variety of styles as well as orthotic inserts and high quality socks. I have used them for years as I used to attend a number of trade shows that required a lot of walking and standing on concrete floors. The pricing is well below that of Mephisto and in line with Ecco.

I love Taos shoes and sandals, they are super comfy you can walk all day in them. Great support, fit and they look good.

I have painful feet and I do so much better when I wear SAS shoes. They are so very comfortable and they last forever. I have about 8 pair and they are my favorite shoe for comfort. SAS (San Antonio Shoe co.) have a shop across from the Paddock Mall in Ocala. It is a small shop but loaded with plenty of shoes in sizes that are not found in most shoe stores. I wear a size 10.5 narrow and they always have them on hand or can get the color I want and ship to my house within a week.

On a second note, Are you going to Europe via a cruise? We are going on a cruise the end of April and getting off in Barcelona, then leasing a car and taking a driving tour around several countries, ending in England where we will return home sometime in late June or early July.
