Danger, Will Robinson!!!

I've personally found Born and Clarks to be good travel options, but will also be checking out these new recommendations. Shhhhh....don't tell DH!

Clarks are very comfy. Most shoes are uncomfortable for me but Clarks has very decent offers and reasonable prices.

I brought a pair of these Puma ballet flats when we went to Spain a couple years ago -- very comfortable and they looked fine for going out. I even wear them to work. Just bought another pair to replace the ones I had!

I love the look of the orthaheel sandals but ordered a pair from QVC- it was a TSV- and they are too narrow for me. and I do not ever need a wide. I don't think they come in wide actually. I was disappointed. they were the Dr. Weil brand of orthaheel.
I just discovered Reiker this morning as I was searching around. And I agree they have some nice looking shoes.

Thanks for all the recommendations ladies...feel free to keep them coming.

I love Klogs. They look good and are so very comfortable. They are particularly good for people like me with wide feet. I have a co-worker who tried them and her foot is too narrow for them.

Another vote for Clarks! I wore a pair of Clarks to the state fair last summer where I pretty much walked or stood for 8 hours straight, and my feet were not killing me at the end of the day! These are my favorites, but I would recommend any of the Ashland footbed for cute shoes that are suitable for a lot of walking.

I'm not sure these will be quite pretty enough, but I spent last summer in them - one three week trip to the west coast and a 2 1/2 week trip to the UK. They were at least feminine enough to wear with a skirt or casual sundress, and sturdy enough to walk up and down cobbled streets, groomed hiking trails, and all about town, carrying a travel backpack. I was really impressed with their performance.

That said I agree with having a second pair to give the feet a break and just for a different feel. I brought along the Merrell pace glove, partly because it's so light and packs easily.

be as relaxed as you can be, as you do what you gotta do.

I like Orthaheel (now Vionic) and Dansko a lot. I also like Clarks though I can't wear them everyday because the arch support isn't quite enough but they make a really good comfortable quality shoe.

I also like Chaco but those are for more active times, probably not what you are looking for.

I Easy Spirit's Gessica ballet flats:
Seriously comfortable - I walk around all day in them - and pretty enough to wear out at night, as long as you're okay with flats. They also come in lots of colors, sizes and widths (the latter important for wide-footed individuals like me).
