Traveling Feet....Here, There, Everywhere
Work has required more than a bit of travel lately, and I've found myself in a bit of quandary when it comes to footwear. Do I choose style over comfort, as is my wont? Or do I show my poor feet a bit of mercy? I found myself looking at others' shoes in an effort to refine my approach. Above, you see a pair of charming yet sensible shoes that I spied trodding upon the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
I also encountered an American gentleman (and South Carolina resident) who'd toured three countries--Italy, Kenya, and the United Arab Emirates--crediting his complete comfort to his shoes, a brand called Keen. He also swore that no matter where he went, people stared at his shoes, as if they were the oddest footwear they'd ever seen.
