Thanks all, except Prince of Paisley.

Happy now, Prince?

I'd never join a club that would have me as a member!

I run in old nike 3.0s and they took a while to get used to but seem quite comfortable now. Though maybe i should wear them for a whole day of walking and see how they feel. Last time i travelled in winter with a pair of mmm gat sneakers (flat sole and no support) and some hiking boots but found the sneakers uncomfortable for spending whole days walking around in so thought i'd try something different.

Aesthetic wise i'm mid 20s and going to be in button downs and tailored shorts / chinos most of the time. Most of my time will be spent going round the tourist sites and im part asian so i guess people figure me for a tourist anyway. Just after something comfortable that looks more like sneakers than a pair of runners (like my kayanos urgh..).

I guess if they were a bit dressier it wouldnt hurt, though I'm still not going to have a suit for the couple of times we go to somewhere with a star or two.

 

Couple of suggestions:

 


 

Nike Roshe Run (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Nike Inneva Woven (Click to show)

 

 

 


 

Nike Mayfly Woven (Click to show)

Those woven shoes.... shog[1].gif

What about a pair of leather walking shoes that are more casual and designed for comfort, with good insoles

e.g.

http://www.aldenshop.com/Store/DrawProducts.aspx?CategoryID=59&ParentID=4&PageID=&Action=

Or look for some leather shoes with a nice Poron insole for comfort, Allen edmonds have a few.

Or a pair of semi-casual boots like Alden Indys, RMWs with comfort insole etc.

Or a pair of Red Wing Iron rangers with an insole inside.

Could be tough to sort it out before you leave, though, and would cost a fair bit more!

Has anyone noticed that you can't buy narrow cotton? laces any more from a mall stand- the local shoe cobblers sell a thick braided lace which looks terrible - and call them dress shoe laces.

 

Went to my local mall yesterday - I needed a new pair of thin brown laces for my shoes - of the sort of quality that came with the shoe when it was new.

 

It seems I will have to go to an established cobbler in the city.

I actually have a new pair of Inneva Wovens in Obsidian under my bed. US 10 if anyone wants to buy them.

Thanks Pete. I was leaning towards a 400g tweed but got talked out of it as being too hot for Aus. Then started looking at wool/cashmere instead but still haven't been able to make up my mind yet.

On that note. Can anyone tell me if this pattern has a name? I'd like to find some examples of it but hard to when I don't know what it is.

Unless your going to be running I'd be inclined to go the NBs. Can't really go wrong with some All-Stars either. During summer I'd also think about taking along a pair of thongs and/or espadrilles for when it gets really warm.

If I was going on a holiday I'd just buy a pair of OG gats.
