Will be going to Paris this Fall -- yippee!

Looking to do a lot of walking. Searching for a shoe that will work with skinny jeans and skirts...and that isn't clunky looking. Challenge is I've a wide foot -- C/D width.

Help! Any suggestions??

Many thanks for your suggestions.

I guess, sneakers are out if the question?

I remember the first time visiting Paris and decided to walk instead of using the local transit train. I walked 20k in my Doc Martens; it blistered my feet. I should have used my running shoes instead.

Several years ago I bought a walking shoe for the same purpose. My foot also measures in the D range. I was able to walk very comfortably in a pair of Clarks. They weren't "clunky" so to speak but skinny-jean stylish? I wouldn't say that either. Good luck with that. Try looking on Zappos though - fortunately you have plenty of time to play the "try on and return" game....

The most comfortable shoes I've had were Softspots. They didn't look wide or big for how huge my feet are. I have a pair of New Balance sneakers the same size and width and they look like the feet on the M&M commercials. Sadly, my feet have gotten smaller lately and my Softspots don't fit anymore.

My mom likes SAS shoes and they come in wide widths. I don't find them to be especially comfortable or flattering, but she seems comfortable walking miles in them.

I highly recommend American made SAS shoes. A nice pair of their sandals would do you for all types of clothing changes.

They are a little expensive, but fantastic on the feet for miles of tourist walking.

I have great luck with Clarks. Not all of their styles are available in wide, but many are. And I've found that even some of the styles that aren't technically wide are on the wide side regardless.

Zappos carries SoftWalk - the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. Come in wide widths and a number of styles. Love them!

I agree, Clarks are great and the style choices are far better than SAS has too offer. SAS are expensive in comparison to Clarks also

Yes, Naot and Ecco. I'm not sure about widths but they are extremely comfortable.
