Your City Break: The Perfect Run Around

Are you taking a break this summer? Maybe Rome, Barcelona, Paris or somewhere further afield? City mini-breaks are the perfect relaxation retreat that take you out of your normal every day routine and provide you with time to think, replenish and re-energise. Everyone’s idea of relaxation is different however. For some, the picture of relaxation would feature a deep blue pool and sun lounger nestled within the historic streets of a bustling city, but for others could be a mountain hike, shopping trip or exploration of the cities hotspots.

To cater for all city break expectations, we have selected out our favourite run around shoes that every traveller needs this summer.

Flat Sandal

If your idea of relaxation involves a cocktail and a sun lounger, then a flat sandal is the ideal shoe for your break away this summer. Perfect for a quick nip to the shops and for slipping on to go to the beach or pool, the flat sandal is must-have. Our top picks are from Ted Baker, Birkenstock and Carvela!
