Want to know what brands of shoes to wear for walking in Europe. I brought one pair of Naturalizer shoes that i thought would be fine for me but i ended up having blisters, pain, and trauma to my feet after a couple of days. Then in London i bought a pair of clog type of shoes which ended up to be worst (no support and you strain alot of the side muscles holding you shoe up). I have wide feet. For a couple of days, I had to wear my husband's tennis shoes but due to my feet being wide the front part of my feet was scrunched up. Finally, I bought a pair of "El Naturalista" shoes in Amsterdam. Has anyone heard of this brand? I was told it's made in Spain. But the shoes in Europe seem to not have any labeling on it as it where it's made. It was ok. It had a thick chunky heel. It wasn't the greatest, but it worked for me for the rest of my trip. I will certainly need to buy some decent walking shoes and break into them before going on a trip. RE: the Dansko shoes that work for you ladies, are you buying the one where you could put your entire foot in or the clog kind that has no back? The backless one doesn't do well for me.
I have a pair of Unstructured Clarks that i bought. They are superlight but they don't give support so i wonder how that'd do when i'll have to walk alot. I walk uphill in them at home and they fatigue my side feet muscles.
Thanks....looking fwd to buying a few pairs of serious walking shoes.
