I, too, am looking for advice.
Heading to France for a couple of weeks, and need to make sure I have good walking shoes. None of my dress shoes or boots have been used for all day walking, so I am hesitant to rely on them for such activities 6000 miles from home. My regular errand/all day shoes at home are an old pair of Brooks running shoes, but they aren't really stylish (vomit) enough.
I am thinking... Flyknits in black/white? Will try those on tonight at Nordstrom.
Any other ideas?
I'd recommend bringing two pairs of shoes, particularly if one of them is going to be Nike Frees. Your feet will appreciate the variety (and in the case of the frees, the small muscles in your feet they're supposed to develop will appreciate the rest). I did two weeks in Japan in a pair of cowboy boots and a pair of chucks. My feet were pretty ok with the whole experience (although I've lived in cities for the past five or six years and have grown accustomed to walking pretty much everywhere).
Also, that feeling when you find something you've been looking for online at a really great price, buy it, and a couple hours later receive an 'order canceled' email.
