Amazon User Review: “I wore these for traveling around Europe. My husband bought $200 sneakers for our trip since we'd be walking a lot around Italy & Ireland. I wore these.After 14 days of walking and averaging 9 miles a day (thank you FitBit), his feet hurt, mine were good to go! One day, we even walked 21 miles (there's a lot to see it Rome) and I still felt okay!”

Amazon User Review: “I LOVE the Performance Go Step Walking Shoe! I wore the shoes immediately after purchase and walked over 150 miles during a 3 week trip to Europe. I averaged 6 miles each day and had a few days of 10-11 miles and had no problems with the shoes. I like the look over the tennis shoe look and felt appropriately "shoed" for dinner at casual dining locale to more upscale venues.”

I dislike wearing socks very much, but I've always regretted going sockless which resulted in uncomfy, burning, sweaty feet and stinky shoes. These shoes are amazing! No hot, sweaty feet.

Minnetonka Women’s Kilty Suede Moccasin

Another staple for warmer weather, a classic moccasin is a must-have when it comes to slip-ons. This moccasin from Minnetonka pretty much the prototype, for women, men and kids. Made from soft suede, a padded insole with a lightweight rubber sole, they are perfect for walking. Make sure you order a half size to a size down, as they run big and stretch! Available in 24 colors.

Amazon User Review: “I am somewhat of a Minnetonka mocc connoisseur, I have at least 10 pairs. I still have and wear the first pair I bought 4 years ago. They are durable and go with many outfits from jeans to dresses. Over time as your moccs stretch out enough to fit an insole you might think about adding some arch support but I travel in these moccs and can walk 10+ miles a day no problem without insoles. I wear them sans socks too. I usually spray fresh moccs with some kind of water protectant when I first get them and they hold up a long time and I live in wet Seattle.”
