Picture it: you’re on your second week of your European vacation. The weather is cool—perfect for languid walks through ancient downtown districts.
But instead of enjoying the famed cityscape of Florence, you’re too busy stopping every few minutes for a rest. Your shoes—which are admittedly cute—now verge on criminal. Instead of becoming the beautiful accessory you thought you were buying, they’ve caused deep blisters to form on not one, but both, of your feet.
It’s then that you realize: choosing the right walking shoes for Europe can make or break your vacation. Don’t get caught cold with stiff, unwalkable shoes—or a pair that doesn’t match any of your outfits.
