Downtown Florence is best experienced on your own two feet. Though cobblestones and a carless lifestyle can wreak havoc on your shoes, the city’s unwritten dress code leaves little space for sneakers. Florence requires stepping up your style game; fortunately, comfortable shoes that can bear some street-beating are easier to come across than you might think. If you’re looking for everyday staples that will survive Florence (and wherever your feet may take you), we’ve rounded up some favorites…and where to find them. Price tags tend to swing toward the upper end, but these are investment pieces you’ll use for years.
