Default European Walking Shoes

Hi all,
I had heard that in Italy the shoes need to look nice and be good walking shoes (cobblestones). I worried about this, I found these shoes they are Munros and known for comfort I'm wearing them now to break them in. I think they are cute for walking shoes. Hope they are comfortable. We will see. I will update you in a couple weeks.

They look great and comfy. Please update us on how this turned out for you. I took a pair of Easy Spirit shoes and some very nice comfortable sandals to wear with skirts as well as a pair of leather tennis shoes and made out very well on the long walking tours on our Grand Med cruise this year.

Okay I have been wearing the new shoes and I must say. Wonderful a big difference from my normal work shoes. I feel like my foot is supported and I'm walking on air. No breaking in time they were comfortable from the moment I put them on.

That's great. You will really need a comfortable shoe with all the walking. Be prepared for a lot of stairs and steps as well.

they look really comfy, my concern was with support, but since you said that they feel very supportive you should be all set.
