Non-traditional wedding shoes

Non-traditional wedding shoes

Nowadays a pair of shoes can be as beautifully detailed and sculptured as a piece of contemporary artwork. However, the merriment and celebration of a wedding will often start in the morning and usually continue until late in to the evening. A comfortable heel is necessary to ensure you remember your special day in a positive light. The anatomy of a comfortable shoe should include a balanced heel to toe (avoid outlandish platforms), lightweight material and a breathable lining. A semi- flexible sole will also relieve pressure from the ball of your foot and accommodate a neutral heel-to-toe movement. If in doubt, allow time to break your shoes in. Introduce foot petals, leather heel grips and non-slip insoles in to your wedding day wardrobe, as they will inevitably become your best friend. Once you have selected your chosen heel ensure that you take them with you to your dress fitting in order to get the hem length of your gown precise.

Pointed Toe

The pointed pump is the ultimate style statement. Breath new life to the timeless style with a curved heel or pair with ivory tailored separates.
