Comfortable Bridal Shoes 2014
and a silver sixpence in her shoe, which better darn well be comfortable…
If you’re in the market for a four-inch Kate Spade, you’re in the wrong place. If you want a shoe that won’t ruin your wedding day with blisters, pinched toes and an ankle twist, stick around…
The Vaneli Madora is the lower-heeled version (2 1/2″) of the beautiful Stuart Weitzman Gigi. Although the arch support is minimal, the Madora comes in extended sizes 4-13 and five widths! $106 at Zappos, free shipping and returns. Limited sizes for $26.99 at 6pm.com, free shipping. Try adding a pair of insoles made specifically for heels to alleviate pressure on metatarsals.
Ros Hommerson Sadie: With a rhinestone-covered 3″ heel and 1/2″ platform, the RH Sadie features a cushioned footbed, elasticized slingback for secure fit. Extended sizes from 4-13 and four widths! $128.95 at Shoebuy, free shipping and returns. $114.95 at OnlineShoes.com, free shipping and exchanges.
Hotter Clarissa: A court shoe with a 2 1/2″ stable heel, the Clarissa in off white leather offers superior cushioning and flexibility with plenty of toe room. Available in extra wide widths too. $129 with free shipping. Hotter shoes ship from the UK, so take a little longer. They’re currently offering free shipping and free returns.
Latigo Kaya: I don’t know much about this brand, but this flirty little pump caught my eye: the almond toe, cut-outs at the side and ruffle detail at the heel set this shoe apart from the other more predictable styles. $99.99 with free shipping at DNAfootwear.com.
Toms Ballet Flat: This particular style by Toms has more cushioning than their classic style. Wear them for the whole wedding or change into them for the reception. Add a fancy shoe clip to dress them up. $84 with free shipping from Toms.com.
Beautifeel Piper: Thanks to Simons Shoes for answering my tweet about comfortable bridal shoes with this pretty wedge by Beautifeel. The Piper features a full heel-to-toe patented foam footbed that’s anatomically contoured to help stabilize the arch while reducing shock. $298 at Simons Shoes with free shipping, $298 at Amazon, free shipping, $297 at Nordstrom, free shipping and returns.
