European women live in great shoes, but they have spent years navigating those cobblestone streets. Wedges are also a very popular and more practical option.

During the winter, tall leather boots are everywhere, while cute ankle boots are a popular choice during the rest of the year. When the weather gets warm, it’s time to break out the lightweight shoes. Strappy leather sandals, flats, loafers, and casual sneakers are all great choices.
