Thanks to everyone for your feedback on shoes for my upcoming European adventure. Here is a recap of your recommendations:
- Tom’s (multiple posts)
- Tiek’s (multiple posts)
- Converse (one post said ‘yay’ the other ‘nay’)
- Bensimon sneakers
I plan on packing my navy Supergas sneakers for sure- but when it came down to finding another shoe, I knew I wanted something neutral, low-profile and comfortable as hell. I channeled my best Tony Bourdain- he rocks his Clarks Desert boots throughout all of his adventures and travels. They are discreet, match everything, classic shoes that don’t scream “I’M FROM THE MIDWEST AND MY BIG FAT AMERICAN ANKLES DON’T DO WELL ON COBBLESTONE STREETS.”
The Phenia Desert Boot in ‘sand’ is coming with me to London/Paris. I’ll let you know how they work out.
