I've been packing for our Italy trip and want to fit in as much as possible. I like the idea of dresses or skirts, but my feet cannot walk all day in the shoes that go with them. We tend to tour long days when we travel. I am 70 years old and, though I look younger, my feet don't know it.
I know older Italian women usually wear dresses. While I like dresses, I usually wear pants because I need to wear sneaker type walking shoes or Teva sandals with socks and neither of those go with a dress. Most people think socks in sandals look terrible so I have been practicing trying to wear the sandals with sheer stockings. Maybe I can get away with them in a dress? I don't have dressy leather sandals that feel good for all day wear and there is no way I'm wearing anything with heels for all day walking.
For people who have spent a lot of time in Italy, what is your opinion? Is there a good compromise between style and comfort for feet? I hate sticking out like like I have a label that says "tourist".
