Q: I am headed on a tour of Italy in October for a few weeks. How can I pull off looking chic without killing my feet? I haven’t found any comfort footwear I’d be caught dead in.

A: For your tour of Italy, you’re going to want a solid pair of shoes that will not only protect your feet but also comfort them from all of the walking you’ll be doing. But as you know, shoes that are not only comfortable but also attractive are notoriously difficult to find. Here’s three brands that we recommend checking out:
Sacco Shoes: Known for a combination of comfort and style, Sacco Shoes can be found at their own online store. Sacco Shoes are especially popular amongst New Yorkers–a huge walking town.
Tsubo Shoes: Tsubo combines athletic details and high-tech comfort features with street style for a fresh take on comfort footwear.
Pr!vo Shoes: Though they’re a division of Clarks, Pr!vo doesn’t sell your typical clunky comfort shoe. You’ll see athletic detailing and bright colors–or more classic leather styles. Our personal favorite? The Pr!vo "Oso" Skimmer (pictured).
