- Wedding: May 2018
I got married in May and have been doing a few reviews here and there about different elements of my wedding, in the hopes of helping out future brides.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED MY WEDDING SHOES, so I had to share!
These shoes were ONE OF MY BEST WEDDING PURCHASES.
The shoes were absolutely amazing. They are by Angela Nuran (www.angelanuran.com). I met Nuran, the owner of the line, at the trunk show. She is as cute and sweet as can be… I paid for them that day, at the trunk show, and she whisked them away to dye them to match my dress.
I put the (3.5 inch) shoes on around 2:30 pm, as soon as I was in my dress, and I didn’t take them off until about 3 am. My feet didn’t hurt once- I didn’t even think about them. These shoes were perfect, because they are very pretty (I personally think they are even prettier in person than they are on the website), tall enough that I can wear them for added height, yet so, sooo, soooooo comfortable.
They are modeled after ballroom dancing support, and they have amazing flexibility yet are very supportive and cushioned. Nuran designed them because she has a background in ballroom dancing, and saw so many brides wearing uncomfortable wedding shoes, just to take them off halfway through the night. You can read her whole philosophy on her website.
I don’t recall the exact price point, and I am sure it varies by store, but it was around $250.
I had them on for over 12 hours, and my feet didn’t hurt at all. All of my guests were dancing barefoot, and I was going strong in my heels (even though my dress was about 10 pounds!). And you know that feeling you get the morning after you wear heels, where your soles are achy– I didn’t have that feeling at all. I could have woken up and put the heels back on!
I liked my shoes so much that my mom actually wore the same pair to the wedding. She was having a hard time finding shoes, so I told her to get the same ones & have them dyed to match her dress. She got the 2 and 1/4 inch heels, because she doesn’t wear heels that often, and hers were just as comfortable! When we watched the wedding video, she commented on how she still had her shoes through all of the dancing because they were so comfortable.
Anyway… I know everyone has different tastes and different ideas about shoes, but I had SUCH a good experience with the shoe (and the company’s owner, Nuran), that I just had to share!!!!!
