NO PAIN, NO GAIN:
Are you a high heel warrior? Haven’t had a sore toe since middle school? Go all out with a chic pair of embellished sandals like these from Badgley Mischka! Perfect for a summer wedding and just enough bling to stand out against a simple, sophisticated gown.
This pointy-toe, slimmed-down stiletto is SEXY AF! With a bridge of jewels accenting the striking shoe, these would be a great pick for a figure-flattering mermaid dress or sheath gown!
This stunning, platform peep-toe pump is so luxe! The array of jewels on the heel makes this shoe big day-formal, but rest assured you’ll be able to wear them again thanks to the simplistic style. These are sure to leave an impression wherever you step!
Seeking something simple but still special enough for the walk down the aisle? These fab little flats will do the job! Fit with a cushy footbed for dancing all night long, they also double as your “something blue!”
These slip-on sneakers are SO comfortable (and equally cute!) They feature a one-inch platform so you won’t lose height if you choose to wear these all day long. They have a breathable lining and pearl details – make sure your photographer gets a shot of these babies!
Boho brides rejoice! You can wear your Birks even on the big day! These are perfect for trekking to your outdoor, summer ceremony spot. They’re waterproof and molded with a signature contoured footbed and grippy bone-pattern tread so you can kick back and party wherever your wedding adventures take you! Bonus points for packing these for the honeymoon.
