Trip to Europe

I have not posted in quite some time…mostly due to a sporting clays addiction and work that has not slowed since Covid. I do however still watch some threads.

My wife and I are planning our first trip to Europe in late April/early May with stops in Paris, Caanes, and Barcelona. I am fortunate enough to have relatives in the perfume business in Grasse so they will host us in Caanes.

I never have nor will buy into the “ casual” trends of recent years so most days I would be wearing chinos, a button down, and casual blazer (or some type of weatherproof coat depending on the weather).

I do however need to pinpoint no more than 2 pairs of comfortable shoes to rotate. I am about to order a pair of shoebank AE Chelsea boots…if they don’t work I will try Meermin. I would waterproof these for potential wet weather.

Anyone have suggestions on non-sneaker casual shoes that are good for being on your feet all day?

Also suggestions on a stylish backpack rather than prototypical North Face hiking back for day excursions.

Thanks and glad to see the forum still plugging along.

I dressed in the same way when we visited Paris in 2019. We spent most of our time in the 1st so even with a tie I felt under dressed. I wore a pair of AE Wilberts or Bentons most of the time.

I found a lot of the parks to have walkways made of fine gravel or sand. The Tuileries was the worst, it was so dusty. So Paris can be tough on shoes.
