Comfy Shoes For Walking

Summer is almost here and people will be out traveling.  Some may travel far such as to Europe while others will stay closer to home.  Many travel locations offer the opportunity to take a walking tour.  A walking tour is a tour that is taken on foot.  It usually consists of a small group of people who are escorted by a guide or who are taking a self-guided tour.  A walking tour can visit a historical site, a cultural site, a religious site, or more.  These tours can be targeted to a specific interest.  Walking tours allow people to have more of an up-close look at a site. 

Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service offers these recommendations when choosing a shoe for a walking tour:

•    Choose a shoe that is comfortable. You want to be able to wear your shoes for hours without having blisters or chafing
•    Choose a shoe that is functional.  If you are doing a tour on cobblestone roads, then you need a different shoe from someone that is doing a tour that is on sand
•    Choose a shoe that supports your foot.  Pick a shoe that will support your arch, give your toes enough room to spread out, and cushion your heel
•    Pick the right socks to go with your shoes
•    Choose shoes that fit correctly.  Make sure to break in your shoes before touring with them or you could end up in pain

Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service offers these tips when choosing a shoe to wear on a walking tour.  If your favorite pair of walking shoes needs a little TLC, then bring them in to our store.  We welcome all types of shoes, boots, athletic shoes, and orthopedic shoes.  We can repair or replace stitching, heels, soles, tips, and more.  We also offer shoe stretching and orthopedic shoe modifications.

While you are on your walking tour, you might like to have a small bag or backpack.  We offer a variety of repair services for bags, backpacks, leather bags, and more.  We can repair or replace buckles, stitching, straps, zippers, and more.
