Old Town in Dubrovnik is a cosmopolitan little gem where the streets are paved with stone and lined with charming outdoor eateries, irresistible shops and beautiful old churches beckoning visitors to come inside. Pack a pair of comfy shoes for walking the walls during the day.
For strolling the streets and joining the crowds at the wine bars, jazz cafes or coffee houses in the evenings, slip on a pair of Brian James’ booties ($195, www.BrianJamesFootwear.com), luxe in leather and accented with chic touches, including a toe-cap and high ankle strap.
The bootie’s cushioned insole offers good arch support and extra padding for the balls and heels of your feet lets you relax into the shoes and keeps a bounce in your step the whole time you’re wearing them. The bootie sits on a solid three-inch heel, but this footwear is extremely comfortable – and very much at home amidst the relaxed elegance of an evening in Old Town.
Your feet will look good – and feel good – for ambling from the Pile Gate, across the main square and to the furthest reaches where the sea gently laps the city.
