Are these shoes too American looking?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I'm a 22 year old female and going for 2 months of backpacking in Europe starting July 22nd (Spain, France, Germany, and the Netherlands). I have really comfortable shoes but they're running shoes. I've read that wearing running shoes can make you a target, but mine are dark Merrell shoes and I think they might be okay ( http://thumbs3.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/pict/380948483082_1.jpg ). If they look really bad, I could buy a new pair of shoes-- It's just that I wouldn't have time to break them in and I'm afraid of getting something that will end up being uncomfortable. Please let me know what you think I should do.

Thanks,
Aspen
