"jeans and sneakers" Footwear Tip by 65stang

Footwear, Paris: 38 reviews and 33 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In spite of what I read on this and other travel sites, jeans and sneakers are everywhere in Paris; however it is true that the European sneakers are not bright white. My daughter (15) and I just returned from 9 days in Paris and sported jeans and white sneakers for the entire trip. Yes, we did look like American tourists. We were American tourists. We had no problems with our style of dress and had fun picking out the other Americans in Paris by their appearance. My tip is don't go buy a whole new wardrobe for your trip to Europe. You won't be the only American there. The best way to see Paris is by walking and by the end of the day, you will be glad you had your bright white sneakers with you.
