3 Shoes to Wear in Europe


Nobody wants to be the tourist that is stared at by the Europeans for wearing white tennis shoes (aka: my dad)! It’s hard to catch up with European style or at least stay on par with them while trying to dress in comfortable travel attire. Stay fashionable, versatile and comfy with these 3 shoes to wear while traveling in Europe.

Leather Boots

Boots are sleek and can transform any casual outfit into a dressy look. If you’re traveling on a budget, you can find pleather boots for cheap at many department stores. Cheaper boots are the way to go when traveling in Europe because they’ll look nice but you won’t cry if you ruin them and have to throw them away at the end of the trip. Avoid bringing rainboots because they are heavy, big to pack, and not many Europeans wear them.

You can’t go wrong with a pair of Chucks! Seriously, you will find lots of Europeans wearing these, especially amongst the younger crowd. Wear Chucks when going on walking tours or visiting museums. Chucks are great because they can pack tightly in small bags for traveling light.

Ballet Flats

Spare your feet from a night of walking on cobblestone streets in high heels and wear ballet flats instead. They pack well, look cute, and can be dressed nice or casually. Just make sure to buy a pair that won’t give you blisters, or be prepared with some blister cushions.

Lugz Boots

Extra! Lugz Boots

This is a weird option, but when I was last in Germany I saw a lot of young people wearing Lugz. I thought they disappeared when the ‘90s went away! Many of the girls paired them with skinny jeans for a more casual look. If you pull off this look while in Germany, send me a picture!
