I finally (after what feels like months and months of looking) found a pair of shoes I love.
My question is:
How hard is it to walk in 3 1/2″ heels? I know they’re not that high, but I’m a sneakers/flip-flops/barefoot sort of girl.
I of course have time to practice, which I will, I’m just wondering what’s ahead of me.

i’m not used to heels and i wore some for the wedding. i was in pain by the time the ceremony was over. i’d go as low as you can if you’re not used to them either.

It’s not that hard once you’re used to it. Since you’re fairly “new”..I think that you should bring some flats just in case 🙂

I struggle! The highest heel I normally wear is whatever my cowboy boots are! But, since you have time to practice, you should be ok. Just start ASAP and wear them like everyday around the house doing chores and stuff. Good luck!

Piece of cake! Just practice in them, you will be fine!

I think it isn’t so much the heel that will make it difficult for you if you have time to practice and everything, you’ll just have to make sure that the shoes aren’t totally uncomfortable and hurting your foot. I think at least for me I’m used to walking around in heels so I am used to the discomfort that happens sometimes with a pair that I thought were too cute to pass up even though they are painful lol! But my sister, who doesn’t wear heels ever, when she wears them she can’t push through the discomfort and finds them really hard to walk in… So yeah, I think as long as the style of the shoe in general is comfortable then you can rock those heels with no problem! 🙂

I think it depends on the width of the heel–a skinny heel is going to be harder to walk in than a chunkier one. You also want them to fit well–not falling off your heel or pinching your toes. And the more cushion you can get in the sole, the better!

I don’t find it hard at all, but it definitely takes practice. Try just wearing similar heels in your everyday life once in awhile, it will make your wedding day a lot easier!
Also, a common rule of thumb is the better quality the heel is, the easier it will be on your feet. Not to knock some of the cheap brands, but they’re basically hard, molded blister-inducing plastic masquerading as leather or fake leather.

PS. Even though I’m wearing heels for the wedding, I plan on bringing myself some of those bridal slippers for the reception. It will be a little difficult to dance in them all night! Walking is one thing, dancing is a whole other ball game lol

For me 3 1/2″ is too high–for me. I have even tried to put in those little squishy pads for the ball of my foot and it just doesn’t work–maybe add those to your shoes to help? If you aren’t used to wearing heels that high, they are considered high actually I think on most websites, then I would definitely practice but do it inside if you can. If you want some cute photos of the shoes then you don’t want them all scuffed up before the big day. I agree with the other chicks though, just in case, bring some flats or a lower heeled shoe if possible because you will be on your feet A LOT that day 🙂 Congrats on finding some though, I’m still looking!
