Eeeeh, which ones?

I will never understand how those skinny Parisian bitches manage to click-clack around the cobblestone streets of Paris in those suicide stilettos. I for one am in need of a pair of sensible walking shoes. Not so sensible that I have granny feet, but sensible enough that I can wander around Paris aimlessly for a few hours without too much pain.

I already have a pair of StoneFly Fontana's:

But I'm also looking at these:

The No Name Akiko Jogger

No Name Akiko Jogger

The No Name Flyer Jogger

No Name Flyer Jogger

As much as I love the name Akiko, I'm leaning towards the Flyer because the leather and the square toe make it a bit less casual. Also the heel on the Flyer is one centimeter higher,which is always attractive to a girl who measures barely 5'3" on a good day. Oh one other important thing to note: I hate tennis shoes and sneakers of all sorts unless they are Chuck Taylor All Stars or unless the person wearing said sneaker is well under the age of 25.

Ok, Which of the above shoes do you hate the most and why?

I don't like the Akiko because it looks more like an actual tennis shoe instead of the Flyer.

I really hate high heeled anything so both of these look like a sadistic trip to the Dr for a shattered ankle... can you actually walk in those??

I'm liking the Fontana's....

I don't do high heels. I'm clumsy. I'm also a massage therapist and know that walking around in heels will do no favors for your low back. The Fontana's seem like the best choice to me for strolling around Paris.

I like The No Name Flyer Jogger. Tres cute.

I like all three pairs!!

I was always one who would frown upon Mary Janes and Loafers(calling them old people shoes lol) till Aug last yr when I found myself buying every pair I could find!!! Steve Madden, Naturalizer, Rocket Dog etc etc

I wear them with knee length skirts and denim trousers.

I actually like them both - I am a wedge heel junkie!

They are very similar but I would have to say nix the Akiko, suede is harder to keep clean.

I like the looks of the Flyer the best but only you know what they feel like on your feet.

It's hard to enjoy yourself when you feet are hurting!

I don't like the last pair- I don't like the heels when they form one with the rest of the sole.
