I'm going to Paris for the 1st 2 weeks of June. I'll be babywearing and walking around with my young school age kids. I'm looking for stable, comfortable footwear that looks nice.
This page is kind of what I'm aiming at for clothes: http://homechicraleigh.blogspo.....-tips.html

I'm thinking I'd like a sneaker, a ballet flat and a bootie. This is what has caught my eye so far:
(any ideas for a less expensive, yet still comfortable version of these ballet flats?)

Also any ideas for a bootie? I tried on Sam Edelman's petty bootie and loved the look of it, but the bottom is so slippery! And I'd like more cushion. I liked that it would look nice with a skirt.

My everyday shoes are Birkenstocks & Minnetonka mocs. I wear my Franco Sarto booties or Livie and Luca flats when I want to look more polished. I like Merrells for hiking. I've worn this brand for Europe travel before, but I am not thrilled with their current selection.
