last time I went on holiday I ended up in agony as all my shoes were too flat. Next week I will be doing loads of walking around oldy Italian towns. It will be steep and cobbled. What is a good shoe for all day mooching?

I can't cope with flats though. My feet get really painful underneath

Fitflops / Sketchers tone ups - the thick sole makes them soooooo comfy for trundling round it, and they support your arches

Fitflops have been on offer on their own website, in John Lewis and Jones the Bootmaker.

Do you know what the sizing is like?

It varies tbh depending on the style. I usually fit a 4 (and have for Walkstar 3 and sparkly ones) but had to try a 5 in another style and it didn't suit my foot shape at all. There is a sizing template on the FF website you can print off (or try and the style detail will tell you if it is a particular fit.
