Adidas Originals NMD_R2 Sneakers
Adidas’ sneakers have exploded in popularity among fashionistas—you’ll definitely see stylish locals rocking these throughout Europe. The NMD_R2 style is part of Adidas’ street-style focus, and the design draws inspiration from vintage runners, lending these sneakers an ultra-cool look. In addition to the fashion, you’ll get all of Adidas’ performance technology keep you comfortable—including a Primeknit upper (which is super light and won’t cause blisters), trademarked boost energy-returning properties, and great arch support.
Sperry Seaside Perforated Sneaker
Sperry’s Seaside Perforated Sneaker is a great compromise between a full-on sneaker and a slip-on flat. The shoe slips on and off easily (they are my go-to flying sneakers as they’re perfect for airport security), but still offers plenty of support and padding on the bottom. The PU footbed is super light, yet still manages to have incorporated arch support. I highly recommend these shoes to wear in Europe for days when the weather might be wet, as they have Sperry’s patented Wave-Siping outsole that gives you great traction on slippery surfaces.
