    rosecut:  I like em! They look super comfy and tbh I don’t know many people who will even be looking at a brides feet during the reception. I’m also wearing flats, but I found these online:

    $43. PLUS, the shoes you chose, you’ll be able to wear them a lot more then you would with some of the shoes i’ve seen other’s posting here. I say go for it! They’re really pretty and I’m loving that color.

    I actually really like them! They look comfortable as hell! I haven’t had any custom shoes made, but I’m a cheap ass so I wouldn’t pay $110 for them. If you want them, get them! I hope it works out for you!

    Comme ci, comme ca. Personally I would choose a pair of chrochet toms over them. But to each their own. If you like them, it’s your wedding and your feet so do what you think is best!

    Don’t like them but it seems you really love them so what does it matter what we say?

    ah they’re in bali! that makes sense, the cobbler that i customised my shoes with gets them made in a factory in indonesia too. bali leather is fairly decent, like what you said earlier, the only concern would be arch support. 

    the problem with customising shoes is the sizing. its a bit hard to tell if the size will fit you, and its pretty hard to measure. perhaps you may need to provide not just your shoe size, but also the measurements (e.g. the length and width of your shoes) in case their sizing is slightly different. alternatively, you could try shoes of prey, which allows returns until you get the perfect fit you want.

    I like those shoes. I think it’s weird to say they are ugly when they look like every other pair of ballet flats I’ve seen girls wearing. I mean, once they’re on your feet they’re going to look just like Tieks except without the weird blue soles and for $165 cheaper. Now I’m thinking of getting myself a pair made in peach… – thanks a lot! ;P PS, I think those shoes would be super cute with the right dress and much more re-wearable than blinged-out bridal heels.

    rosecut:  I think they look super comfortable and that blue is a really pretty color. I say go for it. If you’re wearing a long dress, hardly anyone is going to see your shoes and the only thing I can think of is the photographer taking the detail shots. Are these the shoes you want in all of your photos? If you don’t care about that stuff then completely disregard. To me, being pretty on your wedding day is all fine and well, but I’d be miserable if I had to wear 4-inch heels, even for a 30 minute ceremony. I went with a shoe that was super comfortable instead.

    I also cared more about comfort than looks when it came to my bridal attire! I think the blue shoes you posted are cute! Personally, I don’t usually spend that much on shoes, so I’d proably try to find something similar cheaper, but if they’re real leather, then they might be worth the price. I bought a pair of real leather sandals last fall and it was amazing how comfy they were, so there is something to be said for real leather. As for sizing/fitting – how do they get your size? If they just ask for a size, I’d be hesitant, but I’ve heard of other companies that you stand on a piece of paper and draw and outline of your foot and send that to them, which would be the best way to get a good fit, I would guess.

    rosecut: I love em! They’re pretty and comfy looking, and I bet you’d get a lot of use after the wedding also. Do it!
