Comfy Fall Shoes and Booties to Wear in NYC

Hi Deborah,

I LOVE your website! I was wondering if you can give me some ideas for an upcoming trip to NYC. I am traveling with my husband, mother and teenage daughters this fall, and we will be doing a LOT of walking around – visiting museums, going to the theater, and window shopping. Could you please give me advice on what shoes to wear in New York? Thanks a lot!~Carol

Hi Carol,

I’m so glad you are asking about shoes because they are the most important item you need to pack.  New York is a walking city, and you will be pounding the pavement for blocks on end. If your feet aren’t comfortable, you will be miserable!

I suggest you start by finding a great pair of walking shoes or booties and then work your outfits around them.  Brown, black or any other dark-colored shoes or boots are best shoes to wear in New York since the streets are bustling and dirty. Black is also a favorite color of the locals, so you will fit right in.

Here are a couple of outfit ideas you can wear to walk around in, as well as some comfy booties and shoes to wear in NYC.
