The right shoes for a shopping trip


First things first, we're planning on do some serious shopping during our trip. Nothing beats the feeling of finding new shops, spotting your favourite chain stores in a different country or discovering cute local boutiques. Of course you need to make sure your can endure for a couple of hours to find the perfect outfit and score some retail souvenirs. So make sure you're wearing a comfortable shopping outfit. Depending on the season and location of your citytrip, the best options are a comfortable pair of flat sandals, sneakers, lace-ups, slip-ons or espadrilles. So let's get in to that a little more. 

Shopping is our cardio, so we take this exercise very seriously. Just like with sports, you need to wear an outfit, and more important, shoes, that are comfortable. If you're planning a trip during the summer, you can go all out with comfy shorts, and airy flowy pants or skirts. A big plus with these last ones is that they are comfortable loose. Besides that the airy fit helps keep you cool. Which shoes are you wearing with your shopping trip outfit? Best to go with flat sandals, fancy spa slides or espadrilles on a city trip during the summer. Our flat lace-up sandals, or flat embellished sandals will look super cute with your favourite pair of denim shorts, or jumpsuit. Our summer espadrilles are super comfy and they will make every outfit look casual chic. Just the look you're looking for in a casual city trip outfit!

If you're planning to go on a trip in the spring, or to a city where the temperature isn't that high, sneakers will be your new shopping partners. Our platform sneakers and slip ons are our favourites for this season and will match every city trip oufit you got in your suticase. 

Of course we're up for a shopping trip during fall and winter as well, but we need to be prepared when it comes to our outfits. Layers is the magic word here. Make sure your suitcase is filled with cardigans, jeans, singlets and T-shirts to create an oufit consisting of multiple layers. Complete your fall city trip outfit with a pair of combat boots, velvet sneakers or satin slip ons and you're good to go! 

The right outfit for sightseeing


There's nothing better than strolling around a new, exciting town during a summer day and soaking up the pretty new sights. During sightseeing you're outfit needs to be super comfortable, because of course you want to be focused on all the culture, pretty architecture and , not to forget, the local cuisine. Make sure you wear shoes you can both wear during the day, but are also suitable for grabbing a bite afterwards. Our flat mules, espadrilles and cute sandals are perfect for this. 

So make sure you pack your favourite pair of comfy sandals, pretty flats and fancy slides. With your favourite pair of Steve's you're in for a citytrip of a lifetime! 

Always pack sneakers on a trip


Sneakers are fashion's holy grail. Nowadays you can wear sneakers with every outfit, to every occasion, at every moment. Wear sneakers with your casual shopping outfit, comfy sightseeing outfit or even during dinner or a night full of partying, combined with the right oufit. For example, platform sneakers are perfect for both casual outfits as cool evening looks. Slip ons are perfect for both shopping, beach trips and sight seeing. Our luxurious velvet sneakers and pretty satin sneakers follow the latest trends and will complete all your citytrip outfits. And just imaigine how great they are going to look in all your city trip pics ;). It's pretty clear you need to pack at least one pair of sneakers on your citytrip, right? 

Be prepared to party during your citytrip


Of course you're ending your nights in style during your city trip. Do as the locals, find the party hot spots and take your party shoes to town! Our sexy heels, pretty heeled sandals, platform sandals and heeled mules are perfect to wear together with your favourite party dress or sexy jumpsuit!

The perfect bag for a citytrip


Once you got your basics in line, it's time to find the perfect bag to match your citytrip outfits. The most important thing you're looking for in a citytrip bag, is of cours the space. You need to bring the essentials while exploring the new city. This can take up a lot of your energy. So make sure you bring a shoulderbag or backpack with enough space for your bottle of water, camera, wallet, sunglasses and sunscreen.
