Got a pair of Chaco's for our upcoming Italy trip. I'm not 21 anymore. Ie: I require comfort. We are going to be doing A LOT of walking. Tennis shoes (more specifically socks) just do not sound desirable in the summer months. Thus, began the search for an alternative. These are surprisingly very comfortable. Do not fear, I will not turn into one for those make-up free, granola girls. These feet will again don stilettos as soon as we return to the states.
