Wearing Sneakers in France & Italy

Jump to last reply

I've read a few posts on travellers querying what to wear in Italy & France and I don't quite understand the big deal about sneakers (athletic shoes) being frowned upon by the locals. My wife and I will be doing a substantial amount of walking and luggage toting around France, Italy and Spain throughout the month of Sept and I can't think of a more sensible piece of equipment than a sturdy pair of Adidas; no, they're not white. As long as the shoes aren't dirty or tattered is there anything I should be worried about if we enter a bistro or trattoria wearing rubber on our soles? Please advise
