So, you’re going to Europe this summer—congratulations (I’m not jealous or anything)! Since I’m not a hater, I figured the least I could do is help you find some shoes to bring along on your travels, and I’m talking flat shoes. If there’s one thing we all know about the Euro streets, and traveling in general, is that there’s so much walking. So. Much. F*cking. Walking. So, if you were hoping on bringing your favorite pair of heels, toss that dream out of the window. Or, at least wait to wear those for a dinner at or close enough to your hotel.

And, don’t worry, the flat shoes I’m suggesting aren’t going to be clunky Boomer sandals…I wouldn’t do that to you. Instead, I’m sharing some of my favorite ballet flats and sandals that you can get away with wearing day or night—some fancier picks too. Step up your flats game with classic styles from Birkenstock (obvi) and Arizona Love. If you’re the trendsetter of your crew, then you’ll love these styles from Ganni, Reformation, and Mango. And, if you love to keep it chill and casual there are some options from Free People and Madewell too. Happy European (or anywhere) summer!
