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. confused.gif

Also, being totally serious - back when I wore Clarks DB's, I logged some serious miles in those things and always found them really comfortable. They'd be perfect for the temperature this time of year, too. You can wear with shorts or jeans. I always found them a useful shoe to have around, for whatever reason.

i read a book about languedoc in grad school!!! so boring.

Moo, definitely try out the Flyknit Trainers. The black/white cw is on sale on Nike for $130 too. You really can't go wrong with them. You could also order Flyknits in several different styles to see what you like best, Nike's return policy and customer service is pretty good so you should have no problem returning what you don't want to keep.

I'll try and dig up some pictures of the trebuchets we had to make. They had to fling a can of Coke at least 75 yards to pass the project, which apparently needed nearly 200 lbs of counterweight (not only surprisingly expensive, but kinda inefficient). Fun project though!

I tried Flyknit Lunars at Nordstrom tonight and they were strange in the toe area. Are the Trainers the same fit?

I don't understand why people think that you need different footwear when abroad. Why not just wear what you always wear?
post #83873 of 98831
Comfort for all day walking, as mentioned, with better looks than my current running shoes, as mentioned.

I was just there, did a lot of walking on beat up common project and converse auckland racers. I would be more worried about buying a proper rainshell and small bag than footwear.


I like nothing about p.a.m but their t-shirts always fit spot on, too bad they have graphics and are 85$ a piece.

strange how?
post #83876 of 98831
Top of shoe was very low and rubbing me big toe. Tried 4 sizes.

NIke airmax 90 or 95, thats what i like to walk long periods of time in.

what about old school chuck taylors?

Real talk if I was going somewhere and I knew I'd be doing a metric shit ton of walking, I'd take my CP Achilles. When those fuckers are broke in they're about as comfortable as it gets. Ann D sneaks are pretty comfy too, while we're at it.

Glad you're putting thought and planning into this, though, Moo. Couple years ago I took a week-long vacation to Seattle and mostly spent it just kind of walking around the city exploring. One of the days I wore my RMWs and mercy did I pay the price for that vainglorious mistake.

weird...lunars and racers fit materially the same for me, expect there wouldn't be much diff between sizing on the racers and trainers either.
