What Shoes to Wear in Europe
Table Of Contents
Travel Fashion Girl Reader asks:
Traveling to Europe for the first time in mid-April and I’m stuck on footwear. We’ll be in Prague, Paris, Normandy and Amsterdam. I’m traveling with my husband and 12 year old son so nothing fancy in terms of outings at night, etc.
I have a great pair of Sketchers that I will wear for walking, but need advice on a more fashionable shoe to wear to dinner or when I want to wear something other than sneakers. Will it be warm enough for no socks in a flat? Or should I just go with boots?
Ankle booties are your best bet! With any luck, April can be warm but most of the cities listed can be rainy and cool. Paris could be the warmest place (mid-70s). Normandy can be windy and cooler. Make sure your sneakers are mud-proof if you’re hiking around the D-day beaches!
There are likely to be some cold (and maybe a bit rainy) days at that time of year in Northern Europe. Prague may be a little warmer than Amsterdam where you should expect to wear sweaters.
Tip: Packing cubes make the perfect shoe bags to protect your luggage from dirty shoes. Take a look at other shoe bag ideas here!

Skechers Go Walk Joy Walking Shoe
Other Shoes to Bring
In addition to ankle booties, you may want to consider flats with a rubber sole, which are great for nicer days but can also double as a walking shoe.
Skechers, Toms, brogues or lace up shoes are a good alternative (to avoid damp feet) and tights may be a good idea rather than full on winter boots.
Wearing Skechers slip on sneakers in Paris
When you’re searching for the best shoes for traveling in Europe, keep in mind that you might be walking 5 to 6 miles per day. You will be exhausted when you’re done exploring the beautiful cities. For that reason, thousands of travelers swear by Skechers walking shoes such as the style shown above.
Nothing beats the Skechers cushioning when you spend all day standing and walking. These tend to be the preferred option for problem feet!
If you are prone to cold feet then you’ll need socks. Many flats in those cities don’t have carpeting, and the older buildings don’t retain heat very well. For indoor use, you may want to bring warm (packable) slippers or slipper socks.
Ultimately, if you’re heading to Europe in April, bring ankle booties! Additional shoe options would be comfortable flats, low sturdy heeled shoes, or sneakers.

I really like the Blonde Villa style, unfortunately, it doesn’t appear they make them any longer. I can’t find anywhere that has more than just a few sizes (none of which are mine!). Do you have an alternate recommendation?
Hi Betty, have a look at this roundup of popular recommendations for ankle boots, all tried and tested by our community. Hope this helps you in your search!
You always have the best tips on wonderful travel shoes. Own both Blondo and Sorel brand!
Your site is always my first stop for boot and shoe recommendations! Your advice is spot on for travel or around town!
I think I may have to try the Naturalizer Tia Combat boots! They look a little narrow, but I’ll give it a try!
Thank you for your site, I am a travel advisor and love these boots.
Travelling to Amsterdam for work + a bit of exploring in mid-November so on the hunt for good boots that can work for both walking and with European-business-casual… love this blog and looks like there’s more than a couple great options here!
Love my Sorels! Little biker chic and super comfortable! Thanks for all the great recommendations!
Love my Blondo Villa waterproof booties!
They have been all over Italy on two separate occasions! ❤️
I finally found the Blondo boots of my dreams. Comfy, waterproof, and moto styled but not clunky. Blondo Promise- at $159 it’s an investment but the classic style will last years!
Great recommendations! Still undecided between boots or tennis shoes for Fall in Europe. Why is it so hard!!!
Lucky ankle boots are extra comfy and are not heavy to wear. Love that I can wear them all day!
I love my Blondo booties. I have them in two colors. The heal is not too high and they are comfortable and stylish in rainy climates.
I am looking for a new pair and this has been helpful. I really like the look of the
Lucky Brand Basel
I love my blondo boots, thanks to the TFG recommendation. The extra cost is well worth it.
Hi – Thank you for all your tips on all clothing and footwear when travelling through Europe. I followed your lead and got the right boots and travelling pants as we were in the winter months over Xmas travelling though Europe. I love your tips and you cover everything that any travelling woman needs to make her trip perfect.
I wear ankle boots just about every day in the cooler seasons and they are great for travel. Thanks for letting me know about new ones to try. It’s really sad when I find some shoes I adore, they wear out and are discontinued. From now on, I may buy two pairs if I really love the shoes.
I read all these articles because I want to go to Europe so badly but the thought of the flight (US -Europe) scares me to death! My husband went for a work trip and wants to take me there anytime that I am ready so I have to get over it! 😩
I’ve always been a dansko boot fan but this list is making me shop today to try something new. Thanks for all your great tips
Love the brand Sorel. They are comfy.
I must have reviewed this post so many times in the last year. It is so helpful, especially as the selection of ankle booties in stores is so overwhelming. I purchased blondo dagger boots and a pair of Aquatalia on sale. Thank you TFG for pointing me in the right direction!
I own a couple pairs of the Lucky booties and they are my favorite! However just a heads up, they are not waterproof!
Been looking at some Sorels. Love the look of these! I have a pair of Blondos, but not these. I scored them last year from Amazon Warehouse for $20! Still trying to decide how I feel about them. I do have a pair of Sketchers Go Walk…they saved my feet during a trip to Prague. First day we walked 10+ miles and I got a huge blister on the bottom of my foot. Pulled out my Sketchers and wore them the rest of the trip. Love them!!
I have the Sorel Emile boots and wore them all over NYC last December and absolutely loved them! I wore wool socks and my feet were toasty warm
I’ve enjoyed ankle boots by Sofft for years. I have black and brown pairs, and they have remained waterproof for years.
Wore my Ugg boots all over Germany Luxembourg Belgium and the Netherlands and can’t love them more! TY!!!
I got a pair of Blondo waterproof booties 3 seasons ago. They still look brand new! Wore them in a downpour 3 inches deep in WA once, and in snow, and they were great. The little bit of insulation is amazing!!
I bought a pair of Blondo Dagger bottles. Absolutely love them. I’m in Scotland and brought them. Have walked all over the city in them and my feet do not hurt. They are so very comfortable
I never owned a pair of ankle booties until reading your blog last fall. I bought the Sorel Emelie Chelsea Boot and love them.I can’t wait for fall weather to wear them again!

Love Love Love my Lucky Brand booties. I feel like I could walk forever in these. My feet are narrow so it’s hard to find shoes that fit, and these do the trick.
I love the look of the Blondo boots, but they’re too narrow for my foot. I have really good luck with Cobb Hill booties – waterproof and good arch support.
Your footwear comments are always spot-on! Thanks to your picks I can pack for any 6-week trip, across multiple continents and both hemispheres (multiple seasons in one trip), with wide-ranging activities (from cycling or trekking in the countryside to wining and dining in Paris), in reasonable style and a great deal of comfort, all with carry-on only😇.
Blondo’s are my favorite! Waterproof and Comfortable!!
I absolutely LOVE my Sorel Emelie Chelsea Boot. I have worn them everywhere including to the cold Bay Area beaches to the snow to hiking or just walking to the grocery store over the past year and they are still in such good condition. Super comfortable and they keep my feet warm and dry!
Is it possible for me to waterproof a pair of leather booties that I own? And if so, what’s the best brand of waterproofing I can use?
Hi Astrid, yes it is. Many of our readers have done this and these are the sprays they recommended!
I wore the Blondo Villa Ankle Booties all over Great Britain in a rainy September month. They were awesome! Comfy and kept my feet dry! Thank you for all the great travel info AND the TFG Facebook group! The best!!
Traveling to Greece in October. I love reading your blog. Can’t wait to pick out a pair of booties that will work for this trip. Thank you for the suggestions!
Thanks for turning me on to Blondo boots! So glad I found this blog.
My Blondos booties are my favorite – so much so that I just had the local cobbler
Te-sue the shade and fix the heels. I also love the slip on sneakers!
Thanks for all the great recommendations! Purchased the Blondo booties and they have been to Europe with me several times. Great for walking and kept my feet dry.
After reading this article, I found the Sorel Lennox Chelsea Boot on sale! I’m looking forward to wearing it a lot this winter.
I love my Sorel Kinetic waterproof boots! Fashionable & tough!
I love the look of ankle booties, but they hurt the back of my leg. I’ve tried so many, but they all do. I have to get ones that come above my ankle. They’re cute too, but I’m jealous of those who can sport the ankle booties!
Chelsea boots are a staple in my wardrobe and on heavy rotation for Fall/Winter. Mine are about worn out, though, so I really appreciate you posting so many great styles!
I’ve been dying to find ankle boots that are cute AND comfortable – it’s much harder than I thought it would be! Can’t wait to try some of these!
I have loved all the advice from Travel Fashion Girls. Just bought the Blundstone Chelsea boots for my Europe trip in September. Thanks for the good suggestions!
Great info. Thanks
I can’t wear ankle boots because they rub against my ankle bone. I’ve tried many and have given up. But they look cute on others!
Big thanks to TFG for introducing me to Blondo! I now have multiple pairs, and they have become my go-to for travel and at home if there’s is rain, but I want something other than a rain boot.
Blondo ankle booties are the BEST! I have the Villa in taupe Suade and the Emilia in black leather. Love that they’re waterproof, super comfy and warm!
I like the Blondo bootie the best, appreciate the comparison chart and it was informative. Thanks .
I bought the Sorel Emelie Chelsea boots based on recommendations from TFG & love them!
Absolutely love Blondo boots! Bought the Villa a few years ago. Bought the Emilia in black this Spring and love them!!! On winter trips to Europe I love my Blondo booties and my Teva Sherpa lined knee high boots!
Perfect post for my upcoming trip to Italy….grazie mille.
Thanks for the ideas. I am going to France in November and plan to check out the Blondo ankle booties for my trip.
Such a great selection and variety for any occasion! Thanks, Alex!! The Blondo and Naturalizer are so cute!
I love ankle boots. So many boots, so little time, lol… I’m looking forward to fall boot season! And it’s a great opportunity to wear some fun higher socks and not “no shows” 🙂
I have the Sorel Emelie Chelsea Boots and love them! So comfortable and waterproof.
Bought the Blondo boots at the Nordstrom sale last year. They have not disappointed! They keep my feet warm and my wide feet comfortable for long standing workdays, plus they look professional too!
The sorel waterproof Chelsea are my all time favorite! I have 2 pairs and wear them all fall and winter in Minnesota!
Ankle boots are the best for travel any time of the year.
I picked up a pair of Sorel ankle boots (different style) for our Amsterdam/Paris trip last fall and they were perfect! And I wore them through our Michigan winter. Great brand recommendation! They were waterproof and warm.
Yes, I always travel with a pair of ankle boots and very much appreciate the style of the Blondo recommendation you posted. Several years ago, I splurged on a pair of Pikolino ankle boots—and I HAVE to say that they were totally worth the investment. They have cushioned footbeds (just the right amount) and arch support—I was looking for something that would be good for my 60-year-old feet—and boy do these perform. PLUS, they are cute as all get-out. I got the Rotterdam style: https://www.zappos.com/p/pikolinos-rotterdam-902-8746-cuero-olmo/product/9096754/color/769096
I love Skechers too, and I’m about to head over to Australia for a couple of weeks, so I think I’ll look for something appropriate. Love your travel advice, thank you!
I am looking for some cute ankle boot to wear this winter in Germany and this list has given me a quite ja few options to choose from.
A great list of booties to try! Cannot wait to find my next pair for Europe.
This looks is so helpful!
I have two pairs of the Blondo Villa booties and I LOVE them. I’ve worn them all over Europe and the US. They’re warm and comfortable in the winter. I sometimes wear them in spring/summer when it’s raining in Florida just for the waterproof feature.
Thank you!! I just ordered the Sorel Chelsea boot, and they are very comfy. I’m hoping they will be perfect for my Croatia travels.
Thanks for all the great ideas! Time to go shoe shopping!
Time to order my new Fall season booties!
I bought the Blondo booties for work(airline crew) and walk ALL over the world in rain and shine for miles. They look great and are super comfy!
Love all of your tips and recommendations! You have helped me avoid mistakes and disasters related to travel in Europe. Thank you 😊
Just ordered my first Blondo booties after years of reading about them on this site. Can’t wait to wear them to England next month!
I def need to check these out.
Great list. I have been looking for a low heeled bootie for the winter.
I am trying the sorel emelie boot. Hope it works out
I bought the Blondo boots for a trip to Ireland and they were comfortable from the first wear right out of the box. Love these booties!
Thanks for all the comfy shoe ideas here!
You convinced me to buy the Sorel Emelie Chelsea. Lots for our trip next year to Scotland, so far they’re super comfortable! Thanks for the great suggestions

Love the Blondo waterproof booties! They really keep your feet warm.
Love my Sorels! I prefer a wedge heel, and I have several styles. They are so comfortable and waterproof too!
I always preferred ankle boots over sneakers for comfort especially in the winter when I travel. I love your selections and I will definitely check out the Tevas!
I love my Blondo booties!
Love all the great footwear suggestions. My feet need comfort, but I want to be a little more stylish that my sneakers.
Just ordered some Sorel booties for my fall trip to England!
No travel booked anytime soon but I’m trying to create a capsule wardrobe that can be ready for anything. Including last minute travel! Love seeing these options.
Love your blog, so many great ideas!
Heading to London in early March…black or tan Blondo waterproof booties??
Hi Robin, thanks for your comment! Either or 🙂 which colour do you like best with the rest of your clothing? 🙂
I’m planning for an early May trip to Paris. Should I be following a summer or spring packing list? The weather looks to be unpredictable. I’m torn between dresses or no? Sandals or booties? Either my NBs or Supergas are definitely on the list.
Hi Kelli, I’d advise to make the decision two weeks before your trip when you can get an accurate weather forecast. Enjoy your trip!
Enjoy! We went to Paris in May two years ago. The weather was surprisingly chilly (low 60’s) – so I wound up wearing a trench coat and scarf every day (covering up my pretty spring outfits). I splurged on, did pack and did wear a pair of lovely french-esque rainboots (tall, Aigle brand) on many days. I brought flats for the same outfits if it didn’t rain (e.g. skinny jeans, cute tops, either tall boots or flats would work) I could walk for hours in the Aigle boots and they looked cute with a trench coat and scarf. It rained about a third of the time we were there. Pack spring. Hope this helps. Bonjour!
We’ll be in Paris and South Africa from mid-late Sept. I’m thinking of taking a pair of military style ankle boots. However, I’m sure if they’ll be too heavy to pack and who want to fly with boot that tie up?
Ankle boots just look great, I recently bought an OTBT Valley View. They are super stylish and very comfortable. Nowadays, I am pairing them up with almost everything I wear and loving all the styles.
Glad you like them 🙂
What are the most comfortable leather ankle boots?
Try this: https://www.travelfashiongirl.com/womens-waterproof-leather-boots/
I wore the Sorel Lennox Chelsea in Italy this April and they were SOOO comfortable right out of the box.
Ankle booties are perfect! My new favorite is the Blondo ‘Valli’ Bootie. It’s waterproof, suede or leather depending on your preference and the 2″ heel makes it walkable through airports or for a day’s adventures. Pair them with SmartWool socks and you’re good to go!
Blondo is a great brand! Thanks for sharing Ann 🙂
I love ankle boots for fall and winter and bought a pair of the Sorel Emelie Chelsea Boots, based on TFG recommendations, when Nordstrom had them on sale. They were too stiff for me and uncomfortable but I had a great experience with Nordstrom nonetheless. I live in Spain so had ordered the boots (along with some other items recommended here) to be sent to my daughter’s home in NC. It was a least a month before I even got to try them on. No problem. Nordstrom took them back and refunded my money. It was a breeze. Since then, I bought a pair of Ecco ankle boots that were recommended here and they are very comfy. I got them secondhand for 35 euro and they were like new so I like them even better!
First time European traveler! I’m going on an 18 day trip to Amsterdam, Paris, Italy, and Greece in the middle of June…any tips/recommendations for shoes/clothes?! Thanks!!!
Take a look at this guide for all the info: https://travelfashiongirl.com/10-step-packing-guides/10-step-packing-guide-europe/ have an awesome trip!
Does anyone have any experience with Sorel wedge booties for travel? All of your recommendations leave out Sorel boots, so I just wondered.
I love Sorels for harsh winter climates but they are a bit clunky and too heavy for non-snowy weather! I don’t have any experience with their wedges.
Hi Alex, Whose booties is the model wearing in your pin photo? The elastic looks to be just what my fussy feet would need.
Hi Linda, the image is a stock photo so I do not know the name of those exact boots, but the elastic is similar to the Report Signature Women’s Anise Boot
which are shown lower down in the post 🙂
Good idea! We’re going to Ireland in June and footwear is a huge question in my mind.
Hi Melissa, check out this post: https://travelfashiongirl.com/packing-for-ireland-in-the-summer/
I love the idea of taking a pair of ankle boots as we are getting ready to take a trip to Germany/Austria late May when the weather is still unpredictable and potentially rainy. My favorite is this pair that is very comfy http://www.zulily.com/p/brown-braided-strap-waterproof-suede-delavina-ankle-boot-5675-35523175.html and I am packing my Ahnu flats. Any outfit recommendations to go with the booties for late May in Salzburg and the Alps.
You can wear them with pretty much anything. The most popular outfits would probably be with dark wash skinny jeans or skirts/dresses with black tights. Here are more ideas: https://travelfashiongirl.com/how-to-wear-ankle-boots/ Have a great trip!
I just moved to Europe and ankle boots and booties are everywhere here!! They’re definitely a staple in my wardrobe and I constantly pack a pair when traveling to dress up or down!
Good to know, thank you 🙂
Great tips. Ankle boots are great for trave.
Love Blondo boots! They’ve been to Europe with me a few times and have kept my feet dry and comfortable!
Love this blog and all the comments
