    Do you have any recommendations on the Teva's, I don't like trainers so wouldn't want my feet enclosed. They do have some nice sandle type ones though :)

    That's what I have, the sandal types. I have never bought their shoes, just the sandals. Also, I tend have the ones that cover more of your feet. They have some that have just straps on the top, which I don't have.

    I don't think you would be disappointed with any of them.

    They've got some really nice ones, and if they last as long as you say then paying out that much is a investment in the long run. I have a fallen instep too and find it hard to find sandals that are comfortable and don't make my feet hurt.

    I might see about getting a pair of those for our next trip.

    Thanks :)

    I think I had my first pair for 6 years or so. Also, like the fact that with the different straps you can pull certain parts tighter while others stay looser. So it makes for more of a personal fit.

    Do your feet sweat in the TEVAs? I can't wear Crocs in the heat because of it, would love to not have to wear trainers

    I have 3 different pairs of Tevas that I wear to the parks. Much better than sneakers/trainers etc.

    Achy feet are NOT good.

    I take some Tylenol to start off the day. That seems to work as a preventative measure against general achiness.

    I also wear good walking sandals. I have worn Tevas and have the pink pair in the pic. I currently like my Merrell San Remos. They are cute and have a nice sturdy footbed.

    I can't wear tennis shoes at all. My poor feet need to be free!

    Crocs have some nice normal looking sandals as well. I have several pairs of these and my feet do not sweat in them

    These are the Crocs Cleo

    If it's hot out my feet will sweat anyway. But maybe that's me. :unsure:

    I always wear sneakers (I don’t like to leave my piggiesexposed to mishaps). I usually buy apair of Dr Scholl’s insoles for the trip and often will wear double socks forextra padding and blister prevention. Iknow it is way warmer than sandals, but my feet can go a lot longer this way.

    I've worn/wear any number of brands. The key is the footwear has to be perfectly fitting. Nothing new and stiff, or old and broken down, or you will get blisters.

    Be alert to hot spots on your feet. The second you feel that you may be getting a blister, stop immediately and use moleskin or some other type of protection.

    Consider getting a foot/leg massage. It does wonders for you! :yes:

    I wear good quality trainers, and socks that wick the moisture away. I have delicate feet that blister easily especially in the heat. I think also you should do dome training before you go, you walk a lot of miles each day and it can make for a much better holiday.

    We usually pop a couple of Aleve or Advil in the morning before going into the parks. It makes a huge difference later in the day.

    im not a fan of crocs in the slightest but i do actually really like the ones you have just posted.

    I normally buy plimsoles from primark, and as they are so cheap I then dump them before i come back, that way I have more room in my suitcase ;-)
