Ok so I have compiled a list of what I want to take to Europe. When I go I will be traveling with my mom and we have basically the same size foot so basically double the shoes which is awesome! Before I post my list I want to post this…I think I may have solved the shoe dilemma, I personally hate athletic looking shoes on myself, I dont find that I can wear them with many things and so I have found some Skechers shape ups for women in a platform sandal type of thing http://www.ca.skeche… I know they look kind of athletic(y) on the site but when you wear them they just look like a black platform Mary Jane shoe and they are so comfortable. They honestly look like a trendy shoe and not like a tourist(y) shoe. I am super short almost 5’1 and I am plus size so I need something to give me height. These work great! It doesn’t feel like I am sacrificing style when I wear them. I am a very high maintenance person and I always over pack, these shoes may be on the heavier side but you can use them for everything. Use them for walking around during the day, wear them with a dress or skirt. I would personally only wear them for day walking and slip into flats for a night out but that is just me. Hope this helped some of you out Next up is my packing list!
p.s. I also want to buy these http://www.ca.skeche…, I am sure I can wear them for a night out and them seem to be very comfortable! Just some thoughts
I like sketchers and I alternate low-cut sketchers with fairly heavy sandals when I travel. I like the style in your link and I wear Sketcher shape-ups at home, but I WOULD NOT wear them traveling. The rock and roll sole thing (the extra exercise benefit with shape-ups) is very unstable and almost dangerous on narrow stair steps. You’ll climb mountains of stairs and you’ll be walking on cobble stones and other uneven surfaces — I’d turn an ankle for sure in my shape-ups.
Look at Clark’s Privo line for similar appearance without the rocking sole of shape-ups.
I didn’t even think about the rocking, mine don’t seem to rock too much but i’d rather not take that risk. I looked at the clarks website and I do like some of those shoes. I guess I’ll just try to find stuff and see what works best
I use Mandarina duck becuase the fabric makes it so light.
The thing that makes Mandarina duck so special is the lightweight
Mandarian ducks are popular among celebrities too.
