I love those Criana by Nina shoes!  I am not a fan of wedges, personally.  I just don’t think they add that “sexy” that I like.  I personally would go for the Criana shoes since they’re A) Free, B) Low heel, and C) Rated comfortable!

Seems like Zappos shoe is the better choice (free, comfortable, good reviews, navy blue). Plus, I like heels (even low heels) better than wedges. If I had to choose between the top 2 shoes, I would pick #1. Just my opinion!

Good luck!

Why not just wear flats?
TOMS are plenty comfy, I had a friend who wore them on her wedding day and absolutely loved them.

Whatever you do, make sure you break in the heels so they’re comfy.
A few pairs of damp clean socks (I know, eww) on your feet and then in the shoe for a few hours helps a ton!

@MeredithLee11:  I bought the 2nd pair (Nina Criana) as my wedding shoes for next summer. I ordered them from Zappos, and they were actually the third pair of wedding shoes I ordered from them.  It was very convenient to send back and return the shoes that didn’t work out.  I printed out a prepaid UPS label, dropped them off at the UPS store, and that was that.

I tried the Nina Culver shoes, and while the heel height was comfortable (I can’t walk in high heels either!), I didn’t like the D’orsay cutout at the arch of the foot. I felt unsteady in the shoes.  I’ve practiced walking around in the Criana shoes, and I think they are pretty comfortable as far as dress shoes go, and the heel height is definitely manageable! I like that there is more “coverage” for my foot, so I feel more steady. I’m not worried about tripping or falling on my wedding day because my feet are sliding around in my shoes, lol. I ordered the Nina Criana shoes in the dark purple color and plan to add fancy shoe clips to bling them out a bit more!

I also am not a big heel person. Just wearing my heels for my dress fittings were torture after a while, and mine are 2 and 1/2 inch, haha. I’ll wear them for the ceremony but for the party I’ll be changing into these.  They’re about same height as my shoes and with my dress you honestly can’t even see them. I feel like this is my best wedding investment, cuz I plan to dance! LOL. They’re from famousfootwear.com. As for your shoe selections above, the first ones are my fave. Good luck!

I think I like the Criana a bit better.  They look rather comfortable.  I’d jazz them up with low-cost shoe clips from Etsy.

I’m wearing Nina in dark blue:
