I have really weird feet but my choice is SAS. I have about every color in their loafers & wear them daily for work as well as when I travel.

As someone else said, it all depends on what's comfortable for her. By the way, I buy them NEW on ebay since they're not sold here & are much cheaper there.

I remember walking all over Paris in my Bruno Magli sling backs!!! (Still my favorite brand.) However... since that time my arches collapse when I stand up. Couldn't live now without orthotics. As 5Alive suggested... have the footsies checked out just in case.

Land's End Lightweight Hikers

Very comfortable. I wore them alot last winter and they kept my feet dry, even in all the snow.

Merrells... I'm glad I found the style that's sleeker looking than the first suede slide ons I bought. At any rate, I can walk for days in those shoes.

Merrells are where it's at IMHO

I'm heading to Paris next week and have loads of new shoes to take based on these reviews. I've had good luck with mephistos and dansko clogs but I do rotate them daily. the best shoe i've found (and on my 4th pair) are montrail trs comps, I wear them in the woods walking on rocky, rooty, uneven trails and don't even need my orthodics with them. they just don't look the best with pants but at least are gray, not white. would love to know how the mbt shoe users did, am thinking about them for a future trip but ouch!, they are $$$

I love my Donald Pliners, Cole Hahns and my Merrills, but I wouldn't think of making my annual trip to Paris and London without my Josef Seibels. They are just the very best. Great support and and rubber type sole that takes me happily thru puddles while shopping a the flea markets. Try Josef Seibels. Enjoy.

How about a bad woman's walking shoe?
Sorry, I could not resist that!
As a bad woman with bad, bad feet, there is no one's advice to take but your own feet. walk around the store in them before purchase. My friends swear my most of the mentioned labels but they don't work for me.

I haven't read all the posts but hands down, Eccos. Look on Sierra Trading Company. They often have wonderful sales. Also The Eccos are goretex lined and are waterproof.

Hi. Just in from 3 1/2 weeks walking Europe. Test drove many of the above mentioned and ended up purchasing (measured and fit) a pair of ARAVON, a sub-company of New Balance that makes fine Leather European Walking Shoes. I think mine may be called Faye, but maybe not~ a full coverage leather slip on, HEAVEN to my feet, perfect for casual to fancy affairs, excellent on all types of cobblestone. I will purchase a backup pair as soon as Im unpacked! They are fabulous. Kate
