Looking for some closed toed shoes that would be forgiving on my feet for our trip to Rome, which I think will have a lot of walking. I don't want to wear tennis shoes, because I think that's not as fashionable in Europe. I don't want to stick out like a sore American thumb Anybody have Toms? Wear them while pregnant? My friend in NYC says they're worth the money b/c she walks a lot, but I am having sticker shock (the ones I want are $54).

Goofed it up so no poll -

have a pair and think they are worth it!
have a pair, wouldn't buy again
never had Toms

Have two pairs, they're definitely worth it. I love my TOMS! They're super comfy, and I wear them everywhere.

I have a white pair and I don't like mine, they are not comfortable on the back of my foot, but that is probably just me, lol. I think I have a strange shaped foot. I can't wear the shoes that have a strap in the back because it always falls down. It is very possible that it is just the shape of my foot that makes mine uncomfortable. Oh and I didn't pay full price for mine, I got them brand new in box at the goodwill for $3, lol.

They are cute and comfy... but if you are on your feet all day long they have no support. I would opt for my freeruns if im gonna be out a lot.

Never had them but they look comfy. Can you order a pair then return them if you don't feel comfortable or go somewhere to try on a pair to see how you'd like them?

I think I can get free returns with nordstroms.. the only place around here (and it's like 30+ mins away) to try them is Whole Foods.

I wear a lot of dresses and skirts and am looking online to see how they look with those kind of outfits. I normally just wear sandals but I know that my feet will get more tired if I wear those 24/7 on cobblestones.

I love mine. My first pair were black burlap. They didn't hold up as well as I would have expected but would buy them again. My current pair is the plain canvas.
I would recommend going to a shoe store to be fitted. They start out snug, but quickly stretch out with wear. I would have totally bought the wrong size first and heated them. I'm normally a 7, but we're a 6.5 in them. The canvas ones are a snugger for and took longer to stretch out.

I have 5 pairs of them, I guess I really like them. I agree with Lana though, I would go to the store to try them on before you buy them because the sizing is not consistent. Even within the same size, one size 8 will fit and another will be too big. Also check out the youth styles. They are usually a little bit less expensive and they fit bigger sizes. I'm a size 8 and can wear a size 5.5 youth.
