    ​Shayla, our ultimate go-everywhere, do-everything sneaker, provides comfort and support for walks with Fido and strolls by the beach. So, where do we plan to walk in Shayla? Below, we list our top walking cities—and offer a little inspiration for your next adventure. Florence, anyone?

    • Lace up Your Sneakers and Visit Our Top Walking Cities -

      Boston: With cobblestone streets, public gardens and history from north to south, Boston offers picturesque trails for walkers everywhere. Wander over to the city’s Back Bay for stunning views of the Charles River; you just may catch the sailboats gliding by. 

      Our Pick: Introduce Shayla to Charlestown, a Boston neighborhood teeming with history. Once you climb the Bunker Hill Monument’s 294 steps—and view the city from 221 feet—head over to the Charlestown Navy Yard, one of the oldest shipbuilding facilities in the nation.

      Charleston: Experience Charleston, a charming city filled with warm people, distinguished restaurants and well-preserved architecture. For a touch of “southern hospitality,” embark on a boat tour, complete with harbor views, delicious BBQ and live music.

      Our Pick: Lace up Shayla for a walk along the Harbor. Start by touring Waterfront Park and its elaborate fountains, old-fashioned benches and scenic views, and continue to King Street, a renowned strip of historical shops and storied architecture.

      Vancouver: Whether you visit neighborhoods, gardens, parks, or beaches, Vancouver offers a walking adventure for every time, day, season, and occasion. The Canadian city also boasts a thriving wine culture, providing an excuse to leave the city limits and explore one of Vancouver’s many boutique vineyards.

      Our Pick: Step into Shayla and experience the buzz of Granville Island. Visit the public market, take a boat ride through English Bay and browse a series of exotic art exhibitions, all in one casual stroll.

      Florence: Bounded by four churches, one in each direction, Florence offers an intriguing blend of history, art and fashion. Cobblestone streets and narrow pathways fulfill every pedestrian’s dream, while a collection of quirky shops and local music venues provide a cool vibe. 

      Our Pick: Approach Ponte Vecchio, a picturesque bridge that overlooks the Arno River, and introduce Shayla to one of many local shops and vendors. Cross the bridge and head toward Piazza Michelangelo, a vantage point that offers panoramic views of the breathtaking Arno Valley.

      Rio De Janeiro: Explore Rio, a South American city known for magnificent views, bustling beaches and a warm, laidback culture. Jump into a cable car and ride past Sugarloaf Mountain, a peak that juts 1,299 feet out of the Atlantic Ocean, and then make your way up to Christ the Redeemer, a hillside statue that overlooks the city.

      Our Pick: Take Shayla on a tour of Jardim Botanico, a tropical garden that houses 6,500 species and offers 130 acres of walkable wildlife. The serene landscape provides a relaxing break from the congested city—and an opportunity to stroll through Brazilian paradise.
