@Mrs. Wallaby:  I LOVE Tory Burch but find any flat heeled shoe uncomfortable for long periods of walking or standing. If you don’t have the same problem with flats then go for it.  they are durable though..and cute:)

Ehhh they wouldn’t be my first choice. I’d suggest something that’s actually made for long periods of walking (Born, Clarks, athletic shoes maybe?). They might not be as cute, but the last thing you want is sore feet on vacation. I took my “cute” shoes to Greece and oh man did I regret that.

@Mrs. Wallaby:  Insoles are a great idea!  Bring the shoes with you when you buy them most shoe stores will let you try them on before you buy them. I Do this all the time with my gym shoes. Good luck!!

@Mrs. Wallaby:  Depends.

The Reva’s are known to be a pain in the butt and painful.

Carolines are great for comfort.  I’ve only ever owned Carolines because I have lots of friends that have the Reva’s and they take forever to break in (if at all.)

Durability?  Yes, good durability but if you’re walking a lot outside (like NYC pavement) I would get a protective sole on them.)  I only wear mine in the office on carpet and I’ve had them for a year and they’re basically brand new.

Love! Also I got a pair of black leather flats from Target on a whim once while on vacation when I realized I forgot to pack flats and could find nothing else. I can’t remember the style name but they have them there year round, Those babies have held up crazy good and are really comfortable. The bottoms aren’t flimsy so I am guessing this is why they are doing so well. $25 well spent, I still wear them.

They are just okay, not very confortable and not that durable. Her flip-flops anfd sandals are the best. I own Reva Flats but like them because I love the designer, they are okay.

I don’t like them. They’re expensive, take forever to break in.. if they ever do, and not very nice looking. I’m not a fan of the big visible logo on the toe.

My flats of choice are Cole Haan or Stuart Weitzman, with Cole Haan being far more comfortable. A word of advice though.. walking all day in a shoe like a ballet flat is going to be uncomfortable no matter what the brand.. Cole Haan makes a flat-type shoe with a low wedge and its worlds more comfortable.

@Mrs. Wallaby:  You take it to a shoe repair shop.  Just say you want a protective sole (it goes on the outside)and ask for heel cover too

 

I’m an 8.5 – 9.0  Usually I wear a 9 but I ordered 8.5 i the carolines.  9’s were too big.

I’d definitely wear something with a little more padding for walking in Europe. TB flats are comfortable, but if you’re going to be walking all day, I wouldn’t do a flat shoe at all. Your feet are going to hurt no matter what. I’d go for cute, non workout sneakers like a pair of Vans or Keds.

I owned a pair of Carolines and HATED them. They dug into the back of my ankles after a hour and gave me blisters. Sent them back.
