Super cute!

Could you DIY them! Buy a pair of comfy flats you love and tie a ribbon around them??? You would be walking on the bottom of the ribbon but I really don’t think it would matter for one day!

I have no idea where you can get similar shoes but I wear a size 2.5 in kids so I could sadly fit in those shoes :p

I would suggest Future Mrs. Martin’s idea too! Find a pair of comfy red flats and tie a ribbon around them. You can get the ribbon to stay with a dab of glue on the bottom of the shoe.

If you found a red flat you like you could probably take it to a shoe repair place and ask the to take the sole off so that you can wrap the ribbon around only the upper and then put the sole back on. They could probably also stitch the ribbon onto the shoe like the picture shows.

Very cute. I would contact the designer of the shoes and ask them if they have anything similar in your size and/or if they might have this same shoe in your size. It doesn’t hurt to ask.

Shoe repair shops have the industrial sewing machines that are meant to sew through thick material. I don’t see why they couldn’t stitch the ribbon on for you 🙂

But I would also suggest you bringing this picture into the shoe repair place to get their opinion before you purchase anything.

What size are you? I wear kids shoes sometimes because the flats for kids are way cuter than some ladies ones. And cheaper too!I know that a size six in a girl’s shoe is equal to a ladies 8. Some shoes for girls even go up to a 7 (ladies 9). It really depends on the fit of the shoe though.

Maybe you could fit into those shoes after all! They would be cheaper too!

I love those shoes! 😀

I just searched and came up with nothing. I agree with having a pro sew the ribbon on for you.

Those are adorable! Buy the supplies (flats, wide ribbon) and take them to a shoe repair shop to have the ribbon attached to the shoe.

 

It looks like regular wide cotton-esque ribbon. Don’t think it matters a great deal what fabric you get. Print out the picture, take it to a local fabric store and see what they have that is similar.

@StephMay, would those have to be special ordered? Most shoe shops I personally have been to don’t sell kids shoes larger than size 3 and they say they don’t make them larger either.
