The Sisterhood of the Traveling Shoes

September 5th, 2011 · 2 Brilliant Opinions · Travel Gear and Gadgets, Travel Tips

Buying shoes for my upcoming trip to Italy may seem like bringing sand to the beach.  But I didn’t want to try to squeeze my size 10 American feet into tiny European shoes and I wanted the opportunity to “break them in” while I was still in NYC.  I posted the following question on the Water Wine Travel Facebook page “FB friends, I’m looking for some comfy and stylish travel shoes. Any suggestions?”  Whoa – I got some terrific suggestions.  I may have to consider changing the name of this blog to Water, Wine, Travel Shoes.

I am a fan of Clark shoes and found a pair of these gorgeous babies at a local Brooklyn shoe store.  They retail for $90 but were on sale for $70.  They are so comfortable I feel like I’m walking on air.  I almost chose the black nubuck  but my daughter persuaded me to go with the leather brown metallic. (Yep, I’m taking fashion advice from a tween!)

I already own   a pair of Keen sandals which I love for biking, walking and exercising.  Okay, they are not particularly sexy but if you are the sporty type you will love them.

Two of my Facebook friends suggested Arche and Camper shoes.  I browsed the Zappos site and purchased these two lovely shoes.  Zappos offered free shipping, a liberal return policy and great customer service so I was willing to take a chance with an online purchase.  Money may not buy happiness… but it can buy shoes and that’s a close second for me.

These Arche Eostiks are incredibly soft but have  also have good arch support.  They even look stylish on my size 10 feet.

When I tried on the Camper Laura shoes below, Big P asked me why I was buying so many “sexy” shoes. (Tee-hee!)

    Those are nice shoes. onlineshoes.com offers free shipping & returns as well. I travel in sneakers, I go for comfort & put on my nice shoes when I get to where I’m going. I recommend Nikes…lol

    Darbi- I’m also a big fan of sneakers but they don’t work too well with skirts and dresses!
