Vans shoes are a bit heavy. Their sole is a bit thick but they can complement your height.
You may want to check out their Zapato Del Barco collection. I forgot the price, but I was caught by it's Sebago looking style and perfect for a walk.
Remember always wear a mocc socks to prevent the shoe from smelling like a feet. You don't want your boat shoes, loaf or slip-ons to stink right?
