I think that if you let them choose their own shoe in the same color it would look great!  If you really want it to be cohesive, be more specific about your color.  Don’t just say silver, but say light silver or dark silver (since some people may just get any gray shoe).

I just let them pick whatever shoe they would like (any color).  People aren’t going to be concerned with what’s on their feet, and I want my girls to be comfortable no matter what!

I allowed my BMs to chose their own shoes. Some may already have shoes that match the gown, one like in your case don’t want high heels whereas one may be comfortable with 4″ heels. Also, one less thing for me to have to figure out! I just asked that they show me their final choices

Since you’re already having different dresses, I think it makes a lot of sense to allow for different shoes as well.  I think in addition to different foot sizes, everyone has different styles as well.  I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my best friend’s wedding last year, and I think the 6 of us in the wedding party all had different ideas of shoe style.  (We all wore the same dress, and there was still nice consistant look).

As PP have said let them wear different shoes.  99.9% of people are not even going to pay attention what the bridesmaids are wearing so let them be comfortable.

As someone who just can’t wear certain types of shoes, I’m not sure that I would be thrilled with a bride who forced us all to wear the same pair. I’ve been in a handful of weddings an we were able to choose our own in the color and desired style that the bride wanted, for every single one. I think as long as you give them guidelines (i.e. silver and strapy) there shouldn’t be any problems. 

My girls will be choosing their own shoes. They’re wearing floor length burnt orange dresses so we’ve decided on gold. I fully trust them to choose something that both they and I will like.
