Take to the city streets and enjoy all the hustle and bustle of city life this season. With so much to see and do, cities are hives of activity where you can spend your days pounding the pavements, shopping or sightseeing, or simply settling into a peaceful little nook within a café or bar with a drink and a good book, just watching the world go by. Come rain or shine, the city is a perfect place to spend a day or two, just make sure you go prepared with super-comfy shoes to keep you feeling light on your feet while exploring.


Ladies who lunch

With so many varieties of cuisine on offer, you’ll really find yourself spoilt for choice for places to dine out. Big name chain restaurants can usually be spotted in most cities, but for a more unique experience, try an independent café or restaurant and sample something a little bit different. Lace-up brogue, Village, is classic Man Tailoring that looks and feels fabulous, smart without feeling too formal, and is an ideal footwear choice for a relaxed lunch.

A spot of retail therapy

One of the key attractions of a big city is its shops. Attracting a whole range of big name and independent stores, most cities offer a plethora of delights in their high streets, shopping centres and arcades, as well as some little gems hidden away from the main thoroughfares. Shop without dropping in beautiful Hamlet, our lightweight leather loafer, offering exquisitely cushioned comfort underfoot and sporting pretty kiltie fringing and tassel detail to the front.

Culture trip

Many cities are known for their culture and heritage, with lots of interesting sights to see in and around the city centre. Take the opportunity to learn more about your environment with a trip to local museums and galleries, or find a local tour guide to show you places of cultural significance. Prepare for your tour of the city by stepping out in County, our ultra-lightweight and comfortable Chelsea boot, offering pillow-soft cushioning and superb support for your busy feet.

A night at the opera

Enjoy time away from the television and immerse yourself in some live performance. City theatres have a wide selection of plays, musicals, ballets and operas opening throughout the year, often to rave reviews from critics and viewers alike. Comfortable Dorset, our sleek and flexible moccasin is great for slipping into for your evening or matinee performance. This smart flat looks stunning and feels as comfortable as your slippers – perfect for relaxing and enjoying the show.

Coffee date

Make a date to catch up with friends in a cosy coffee shop. Relax and enjoy good coffee, comfortable surroundings and excellent company. Or if you prefer, grab some ‘me time’ by taking yourself off to a quiet corner and settling down with your favourite read. Pretty ballet shoe Natalia is a fabulous smart casual shoe that’s versatile enough to be dressed up or down. Team with jeans for a relaxed look, or formal trousers for a smart and sophisticated look.
