Going to Paris in October for 10 days and need to good shoe for walking that can be paired with jeans as well as wool or flannel pants that are comfortable for walking? The Parisians do not allow athletic shoes in their country and I make it a point to not wear my budweiser t-shirts outside the U.S. I have the C&J Westbourne and Monkton and would like to stay with the 348E last. Currently looking at the Tetbury in dark brown, how comfortable are these for walking a couple miles a day? Also hoping all models come with the dainite sole. Other suggestions?
This isn't a shoe recommendation per se but I purchased a pair of Islay boots from the C&J Paris store on Boulevard Raspail when I was there last year. The exchange rate wasn't as good as it is now but with the VAT refund I made out OK. Plus I was able to nail down my size in store. I emailed the store the week before to see if shoes/sizes where in stock and I went to purchase the day of arrival.
