So I found a pair of shoes and clutch that I LOVE and completely match my venue. So here’s my problem, I don’t generally wear heels, I’m a tall-ish gal (5′ 7″) whose walking style is a bit fierce. In general when I put on heels I feel like I STOMP when I walk. I’ve tried on dozens of shoes and visited multiple shoe stores multiple times until I found these at Anthropologie. I have 30 days to decide if they’re for me, and I’m not sure if I’m overworrying about if I can walk well in them because I’m not entirely used to heels, or because I SHOULD be concerned because of the shoe and should get a different shoe:
1) I have a comfortable amount of space for my feet in the shoes, there’s no squeezing
2) The height seems perfect (tried it on with the gown)
3) The style is just what I want (smallish heel, kinda old fashioned, and no sparkle)
4) The strap on top really helps them stay on even if the size might be a TAD big on me (these are a size 40, but the smaller size 39 is way too tight).
4) I’ve only walked around the house a bit in them but for the most part I feel comfortable, it’s just that after I put my foot down I can kind of feel myself wiggle a bit at the heel every once in a while.
Am I overthinking the small bit of wiggle I feel every once in a while when I walk? Do I just need practice walking in them? Or should I just go back to the drawing board?

I love both the shoes and the clutch and I say keep them! It sounds like you only have minor reservations/concerns about the shoes; wear them around the house for a couple of days and see how you feel.
Also, I love how the shoes look wth your dress; just gorgeous!

I ADORE both the heels and the clutch. KEEP, KEEP, KEEP!! The style factor far outweighs any concerns!!

@lovelyduckie: I love those shoes but if you are unsure, then RUN TO YOUR NEAREST TARGET! Seriously. I just visited there yesterday and found these adorable flats that look to be a similar color. They even have cut-outs! And they are VERY comfortable (I bought a pair in every color haha). Plus if your heels start to bother you, you’ll have a pair of flats to change into.
Wow, the online picture makes them look hideous but I promise they’re cute in person.

Keep the shoes and clutch, break them in, and learn to walk! If you’re concerned buy the shoes marshall mentioned and keep them on hand to change into during the reception 🙂

I love them both! Just keep breaking them in and practicing in them and you will be fine.

I re-read the return policy I THINK I have a lot longer to decide on them than just 30 days. Contacting them now to double check that this is the case.
If it is I’ll hold onto them and wear them around the house and be able to make a better (less rushed) decision.

@lovelyduckie: Where are these from?!?

@lovelyduckie: ooo I think they’re very pretty!
They are super cute! I would totally go with them…
just practice a walk you feel graceful doing and you’ll be fine!
If you really want, get a pair of flats to wear to dance in… that’s what I did!

If you feel like your feet are wiggling around too much, go to a shoe store and by those foam inserts that you put in towards the toe. They’ll help fill the shoe in, keeping your foot in place and also adding cushioning under the ball of your foot.
They seem to really fit the look you are going for – and you should do everything you can to not compromise that. IMO you should sacrifice a bit of comfort on your wedding day, and can always change into the flats another poster mentioned for the reception. 🙂

We are shoe twins! My SO just bought me these for my birthday, and I’m so excited to potentially wear them with my wedding dress (as long as they aren’t too high for the hem). The clutch is absolutely gorgeous too! I love your whole look 🙂

I voted “no” to the clutch just because I don’t see the point. Would you use that instead of a bouquet? Are you going to carry a clutch around the reception?
Love the shoes!!! I think the wiggle room will keep it comfortable. Just continue wearing them to see if they stretch out.
