I am one of those people whose shopping goes in bursts. I won’t buy any of a certain item for a year or two, and then suddenly I’ll purchase a whole bunch of different options of the same things. Last spring it was flats for work, and I purchased about 3 different pairs within one month.
This year I’m looking at fun but practical sneakers. We have so many trips coming up where we’ll be doing lots and lots of walking. I don’t want to look like a total American tourist in athletic sneakers, but I also want to be comfortable exploring our vacation cities. I’ve been rocking a pair of black and basic Nikes for the past few years, but they are well loved and are just a tad too sporty for a casual and cool look.
I rounded up as many options as I could find for basic sneakers and tennis shoes that will offer support but look cool enough to wear around town.
