re they meant for going out? I could never afford louboutin at retail price so I’ve been combing the internet for used shoes that I will sell after wearing. I’m afraid I’m going to buy something that doesn’t make sense because I’m blinded by the brand.

Wear whatever you want. I’d just advise that if you’re going all out with a brand name (and thus cost), you make sure they are comfortable enough to wear all night or it’s quite the waste. Once you decide to go barefoot your dress will be too long – dirty and/or tripping over it.

If your dress is long no one will ever see them. So no sense in splurging on something no one will ever see if it isn’t in your budget. Also if you just like the pop of color on the soles you could try painting them yourself with an accent color that goes with your wedding or these cuties that are much more affordable.

Those heels are gorgeous!!
Honestly, if your dress is long enough, people probably won’t even notice what kind of shoes you are wearing. I went through three different pairs of heels trying to decide until I realized this. I would pick heels that are comfortable and that you love.

These are REALLY similar to what you shared above and look a bit more comfortable/lower

Oh, I totally know that BJ shoes are fantastic. They are a way more sensible decision, I just can’t get Louboutin out of my head. I will never ever be able to justify owning a pair for the rest of my life lol.
my hope is that this strappy cage style is more comfortable. This has been the case for me in the past with other designers. I just remember wearing a similar style out to bars in college (granted, they were black). Just wanted to make sure these “fit” a Pronovias wedding and aren’t more suited for some fabulous red carpet even that I am never going to attend lol.

this is my dress
Sorry. I’m kind of trying to close in on what I want so I can start shopping around/ negotiating. Secondhand items in my experience take a lot of time and luck to find lol

My louboutins are my least comfortable shoes, some not even walk-able. The platform styles are most comfy. Definitely have a return plan in case they show up and are impossible to wear. Even the most heel-savvy girls will tell you CLs are NOT designed for comfort. In my opinion those are BEAUTIFUL for a wedding and Im a Pronovias bride too!

I tried on a blue pair of Jimmy Choos. I so badly wanted them to be comfortable! But they weren’t. I was dying after 10 minutes.
I ended up finding a pair of Michael Kors gold pair of strappy sandals from last season. Regular price $395. I got them for $70.
Just make sure they’re comfortable!!

in you have your heart set on wearing designer shoes I would echo the advise your try them first, as different designers suit different people. I only have one pair of Loubs and do actually find them really comfortable (I have the New Simple Pump in patent, 120mm heel), though I did try some which weren’t (the Pigalle and So Kate spring to mind). My favourite designer is Jimmy Choo, least favourite is Manolo Blahnik: I know people who hate JC and Louboutin and rave about MB, so, there you go.
Try to visit a department store that stocks different designers and go from there. Even within the same designer you may find a difference in comfort between styles/heel heights etc.
To answer your question though IMO those are definitely wedding appropriate: no issue with the style IMO

Thank you ladies for your input!
i may try on at a dept store before buying- unfortunately there are no returns on secondhand items lol.

I’m sorry but the Betsys are no way near as pretty as the Loubs :-/. I think you can do better if you’re looking for something more affordable. I honestly wouldn’t let others talk you out of going designer or splurging on shoes because they felt it was a waste and that nobody will see them. If they make your heart sing, GO FOR IT (esp considering you’re going 2nd hand and planning to resell)! I plan on having my photographer shoot some shoe specific shots….part of it is an ode to my grandmother, she used to own her own shoe store…and part of it is because a great shoe deserves to be shown off!!!
Agree with PP on comfort. I really wanted this one pair of Loubs but opted for some Jimmys because I started to feel some discomfort on my pinky toe. It’s gonna be a long day, but if my feet start to hurt, thats what backup flats were made for 😉

I think they look hugely uncomfortable, though of course very glamourous! . I’d go for something wearable for your wedding ( they won’t show anyway ) and buy these for those ‘only walking from the car to the restaurant’ times.
