Shoes for walking in Paris

Jump to last reply

After spending 5 hours walking around during a fundraiser I was working on, I discovered that the Merrell black shoes I planned to wear in Paris left me feet hurting. I know white athletic shoes are a no, no. But would some sort of black athletic shoe be o.k. for during the day? I found several at Merrel and Ecco websites. These brands have usually served me well.

I think I can find some sandals that would be comfortable. I've seen several on both Merrell and Ecco's website, that look comfortable, but I wonder if a lighter color would be o.k. as I'd get more use out of them here at home. They do come in black . Both sandals and walking shoes have an athletic lookt to them, but it's the only way I think I can keep my feet happy for 4 days, plus another 7 elsehwere.

I plan to take a lightweight, cobalt blue dress to wear if it gets really hot in June. I have lightweight, black cardigan type top to wear over it if necessary. I just didn't think I'd wear the dress in black here at home during the summer. I think I can find some sandals that would be casual but comfortable. I've seen several on Both Merrell and Ecco's website, that look comfortable, but I wonder if a lighter color would be o.k. as I'd get more use out of them here at home. They do come in black which would tone down the blue dress. I plan to wear the sandals with the dress. I didn't think athletic shoes would look that great.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
