Walking is the essence of the DC urban lifestyle. It doesn't matter if you are a K Street attorney with a pair of cordovan Allen-Edmonds oxfords or a lobbyist adorned in a pair of Jimmy Choo pumps and a secret pair of New Balance running shoes stashed away for the daily commute.........walking around the District is part of your daily routine.
