Walking shoes for London and Paris

Jump to last reply

We're going to London and Paris next spring and I'm wondering about shoes. We plan on doing a lot of walking--a few miles everyday. I have decent shoes, but I'd like ideas for good walking shoes. I like the Keen model I had, but they're not made anymore and the ones I have walked all over DC and NYC, so they might not be so supportive anymore.

I'm not working, so being at home means I'm pretty much barefoot most of the day. I also have very low arches and heel spurs. I used to have one spur on each heel years ago. Now I have three spurs on each--on the top, rear, and front of each heal! What an x-ray that was. I was told they were NOT caused by being barefoot a lot. I'm still dealing with initial pain when standing and walking, and will be seeing a podiatrist or orthopedist.

I've tried both Ecco and Merrill in the past (when the spurs weren't causing any problem). They don't suit my feet at all!

Any suggestions on shoes?
