I was all worked up about what shoes I should take for my two weeks in Ireland and Paris? I needed the perfect mix of comfort, fashion, and versatility. I needed to look cute while logging up to 15 miles a day of walking...!!! What was this girl to ever do?
The motorcycle boots were the best. decision. ever. Their thick soles supported my feet over the thousands of cobblestones, rocky ocean pathways, sandy beach walks, and marbled floors of museums. They also looked great with everything in my backpack, from the cute wispy tees I brought for dinners out to my warm military jacket to battle the gusty Irish countryside.
K,Tea?'s advice about insoles, I also had the arch support and cushioning I needed (my arches are ridiculously high after years of ballet.) I ended up getting some runner's insoles that made my life worth living after 12 hours of walking.
My boots are no longer available, but I found some cute alternatives that look similar to my blessed pair. All are available at endless. Again, thank you so much for all of your suggestions!
