If you wanted to buy the shoes as a gift, I think that would be a nice gesture.

Otherwise, you could give them some options for shoes you think would look nice with the dresses, or you could indicate the color/style you want them to wear.  When I’ve been a bridesmaid before, that’s what my friends have done (said “Wear whatever silver shoe you’ll be comfortable in, as long as it isn’t a sneaker or something like that”), and I had no problem staying within their guidelines.

I’m letting my girls wear whatever gold heels they like. I have wide feet and a high arch, so I understand that a lot of people don’t fit into standard shoe sizes. I want them to be comfortable, and it’s such a waste of money to buy shoes you’re dying to take off as soon as you get to the reception. Even if you offer to buy them, it’s still not worth the potential pain of wearing shoes someone else chose.

Personally, from being a bridesmaid before, I didn’t mind paying for shoes. Honestly, I am super picky about shoes, so I wouldn’t really want the bride to buy those for me. 

It’s a really sweet geasture, but IMHO, I think you should let them pick their own shoes.

Those are cute and simple shoes that your BM’s could definitely wear again!  It would be a nice gesture, but not a necessity.  Many people like to pick out there own shoes, since we all have our preferences regarding width and heel height.  If someone is looking for less expensive shoes these are cute:

My BMs wore short dresses and I don’t care for the mismatched, “wear whatever you want in this color” shoe look.  We ended up buying my girls shoes (they came out to $17 each due to BOGO) but I wouldn’t have felt bad asking them to buy them either as the dress they got wasn’t too expensive.
