Lands End Mary Jane Trekker (yes, shoes!)

Any ladies have these? They look really cute, but comfy. I'm thinking of getting them for an upcoming Italy trip, but would love to hear comments. I've been looking for shoes and haven't found any that I like and that are a reasonable price.

How many days will you be in Italy? They look comfortable but I cant tell how sturdy they are. They look similar to the MESPHISTO ALLROUNDER shoes I bought recently that I am breaking in right now for a 30 day trip to Europe this summer. I think having comfortable,sturdy shoes in Italy is a must.
"Sierra Trading Post" is a good website for comfortable walking shoes.

I bought the beach treker shoes last year for my trip and they worked just fine. I did use a blister stick the first few times I wore them to avoid blisters. I wore them for 6 weeks and they held up well. I bought the wrong color however and they got dirty looking quickly. The soles were great for cobbles and the trails of the CT.

This spring I have the sport sandal in the medium leather color. I hope they won't get too beat up looking. I am in the process of wearing them around the house to break them in really well as they do rub a bit. It's too cold to wear them out of the house.

I have found the Land's End products to be of great quality.

I got a Land's End catalog today and I can see why you are interested in these shoes. (And I'm NOT a shoe person). Does Sears carry these? My local Sears has almost everything in the Lands End catalog. Just a thought, at least you can try them on before buying.

Hello Susan!
I purchased a pair of white Josef Seibels and a pair of black Merrils. Both are Mary Jane type. I've been wearing them around the house for 2 months now in preparation for my trip to Italy in May. Can't go outside in these with all the snow!!! Both are some of the most comfortable shoes I've worn. Small, light and comfortable. They'll look good with skirts, capris and jeans. I bought them after review of the blogs here and elsewhere and they get great reviews!
Enjoy the trip! Ciao,
