@Mikeb thanks for reaching out! The majority of walking sticks and trekking poles will work for city streets, so long as you add angled rubber walking tips (usually sold separately), which are designed for use on asphalt or other hard surfaces. You might also consider shock absorption to cushion on the paved city streets! Here's a thorougharticle on selecting and using trekking poles, and although it is geared towards hiking, there are a few helpful nuggets that would apply to city use as well. Hope this helps!
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
