2. The Gladys — According to Evan Evans Tours and by the UN definition, London is technically a forest with over eight million trees. The amount of green space you can enjoy in London is probably different from what you’re used to in a city. Because of the landscape and the weather, you’ll want to be sure you have shoes that are practical enough for both elements of classic city life and the “forest” that is London. For a shoe that does it all, check out the Gladys. This mini espadrille heel is perfect for all-day wear, whether you’re sightseeing at the hidden gem of Battersea Park or taking a stroll through the Kew Gardens.
