The day would be all about traveling by footfrom the train depot to the convention centerand then to Little Italy for lunch.
So not only were comfortable shoes a mustbut also an outfit they would take me all day!The perfect accessorywas my canvas and leather back packthat kept me hands free all dayand
 was the perfect way to carry my jacket as the day warmed up.
Birks would not normally be my first choicefor a walking shoe in the citybut after going out dancing Friday nightI was left with few shoe optionsso Birks for the day it was.
