We are going to Ireland in September. I have a pair of waterproof Merrells for outdoor walking/hiking but am looking for recommendations of something for walking in cities and towns that are also waterproof. I have flat feet and wear orthotics; normally I wear Saucony running shoes which are great but not waterproof. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I like Anhu waterproof hiking shoes - wore them in Ireland, in fact.
Hi just, I have these New Balance trail walking shoes that are waterproof. They aren't fancy but I can walk for miles in them.
We enjoyed our visit to Ireland last June. You are smart to be prepared with waterproof shoes, it rained every day on our trip...
I can recommend two brand: North face hedgehog Gortex shoes. I wore them in Ireland and I was the only one on the tour with dry feet. Love them. They did not let me down. Another brand that you may want to consider is Clarks they carry a waterproof wave athletic shoe. It comes in navy, black, tan, and grey. A friend of mine just brought these for a trip to Scotland at a local Clarks outlet. She has been wearing them and so far has found them to be quite comfortable. She also has flat feet and need orthotics.
Another Ahnu fan here.
I wear these everywhere due to the comfort and support. The water resistance is a bonus. I have them in blue and in gray.
These Abeos are what I change into at night if I go out. They are very comfortable, but not for long walks. I have them in black and in silver. Abeo has many comfortable styles.
We went to Ireland for two weeks in September of 2014. I wore my waterproof Salomon low cut hikers. It only rained one day! It was warmer than we expected and I wished I had taken a pair of capris. I brought a second pair of simple black Mary Janes for evenings and mornings. Now I take a pair of black Sketchers as they are so lightweight!
Check the ECCO brand. Most are waterproof depending on style. It has been our go to shoe for over a decade.
I bought a pair of Earthies saddle shoes from Nordstrom and then coated them in waterproofing (they were suede). They were great for me on the cobblestones and wet weather in the Netherlands. Very comfortable (10 miles a day walking). I have narrow flat feet
