Appropriate footwear?

Jump to last reply

I am planning for my 1st trip to Europe, which includes 5 days in Paris, 5 days in Perpignan, 5 days in Dublin & 5 days in London this June. I have drop foot in both my feet & wear orthotics & braces in order to get around. The friend I'm going with who has traveled quite a bit, says that I can't wear them in Europe because they are not acceptable and/or fashionable & that I won't be allowed in many places...so now I'm fretting that rather than getting around freely, I'll be stumbling all over the place.

Can anyone give me the real scoop, whether I can or can't? Everything I read says no white tennis shoes & that they are very fashion conscious, but my braces will only fit in laced up walking/running shoes. (they aren't white, they're actually black, if that matters) .

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
