I’m having a hard time finding the perfect shoe…. i don’t have nice slim feet either… i would rather wear my joggers to work then heels like all the other girls in the office do.
I have horrible feet… well i think anyway. I have bunions on both feet which makes my feet wide and REALLY super hard to fit into pretty little heels… which makes me sad because there are so many pretty shoes that i would die to have!
So what i’m posting for is I want to know if there is anyone here on the board that has the same of similair problem who are looking for shoes or who have found shoes and i would love to see pictures.
Also… i really really really REALLY want to wear heels… my stepdaughter (who is basically my bridesmaid) is almost 15 and already a tiny bit taller than me… so she’ll be wearing ballet flats and i want to wear heels so that i’m taller LOL!

I have gross feet (mostly from a year of working 8+ hour shifts at a shoe store where we had to wear “fashion forward” shoes) but I still wear heels. Honestly, most of the things I’m self conscious about are covered unless they’re really strappy shoes, and I just stay away from those. A nice D’orsay or slingback hides a lot.

I have really awful feet also, with bunions on both feet as well. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of ideas for you. I am wearing some dressy flip-flops with my dress, because we’re having an outdoor ceremony and I don’t want to be wearing heels in the grass.
I will say that your best bet is probably going to be to start searching online for wide width shoes. Also, maybe look into something that’s like a flip flop type heel? Those are more forgiving, in that it doesn’t matter whether your feet are wide because there’s no side or strap on the shoe. Something like this:

I have bunions on both feet too (thanks genetics!) but thankfully they’re not huge. They do make it a problem to fit into a lot of shoes though. However, that saved me a lot of money when it came to the Christian Louboutins I tried to squeeze into a few weeks ago 😉 I’m not a “wide” fit, but I definitely can’t fit into some shoes and I’m prone to blisters on my heels AND the sides of my feet. Lovely. Basically it’s trial and error for me. Some heels I try on and they fit like magic. Some, there’s just no way in heck. My shoes are actually red Mossimo heels I bought at Target a couple years ago and have been kicking around in my closet since. I don’t find all heels uncomfortable, but I think that’s been conditioning over the years 😉 I do however plan on changing into flats for the reception/dancing portion of the evening!
Be patient and you’ll find some!

I have bunions and wide feet as well. I’ve always hated my feet and wished I had lovely slim feet.. and someone actually made fun of my feet, so yeh, I definately have to make sure my feet aren’t ‘over-exposed’ for my wedding.. I chose the Stuart Weitzman ‘Glowicky’ shoes as my bridal shoes, and Jimmy Choo ‘Clue’ as my other pair for the dresses I’m going to be changing into. They both have side straps which will cover the bunions, and they both have the shoe ‘walls’ so there isn’t any ‘overhang’. er.. that’s sounds really weird, but I’m guessing you know what I’m referring to??
p.s… I love me some heels too. They’re both 4-4.5 inches tall. heehee

I think peep toes are the way to go. There are some gorgeous peep toe shoes that are very “wedding-y”. Sparkly, pretty bows/flowers, etc…there are tons out there. Try looking at the more typical shoe places, like Macys, Neiman Marcus, Barney’s, Nordstroms and Bloomingdales….the last several are for the higher end shoes, but they are good to look at to get ideas!

i despise shoe shopping – i wear a size 11 and it’s litterally (emotionally) painful to go shoe shopping as I can never find any that fit – and when i do, i have actually taken shoes BACK because they were too uncomfortable to wear.
i love my 3 different pairs of sandels – 1 pair of black ankle boots, 1 pair of brown ankle boots – and my sneakers.
I own one pair of heels – but rarely wear them.
anywhoo – i REALLY wanted to jump on the colored shoe bandwagon for my wedding – and ended up with these beauties! the only problem – even during the dress fitting they started to get just the litttlest bit uncomfortable, so i WILL be getting ballet flats too.

Look on endless.com and DSW.com
You can search by width on both sites and they do carry the wider sizes.
Also try Bridal Shoes.com

OH WOW!! look at the responses *does a happy dance*
@ Ms Kookie – Yes i know what your talking about. I think it wasn’t until somewhere near the end of primary school that i was worried about my feet… i would always take my shoes off for sport and that never worried me until some other kids was like “whats wrong with your feet?” then i never took my shoes off LMAO! I actually got a tattoo on my right foot 2 years ago because i thought i had gotten over the fact of not showing my feet LOL i didn’t mind the tattooist touching my feet but the only time ppl see my tatt is when i went my cute mary jane heels (which is what i might end up wearing if i don’t find anything cute)…
they are black. My dress is White with some black… do you think that will suit?
I did REALLY want hot pink shoes! lol
@soon2beS – i can’t wear shoes like that… my feet look gross… i don’t wear thongs… i have scuffs so that that part of my foot is covered.
Thanks for all the responses… it good to know i’m not alone

I have also been looking for comfortable shoes, i have arthritis and tendonitis on my feet. While i do wear heels, and thong style sandles, for my wedding i’m looking for comfy sexy shoes (if that combo exists), because i don’t want to get a flare up and have achy feet during the wedding. So I’m following your thread to get ideas for myself. thanks for the thread

Oh my God, I hate my feet. No bunions or anything “structurally” wrong, I just HATE them. I never wear open toed shoes! I had the hardest time frinding wedding shoes, and ended up with plain white flats! Darling Husband thinks I am crazy…he keeps telling me my feet are cute…yea right, buddy.

lol, when I go to the store and try on shoes, there was one time where the salesperson actually tried to help me with trying on the shoes.. he actually wanted to help place the shoe on my foot!!! Needless to say, that did not happen. I was hiding my feet from him and told him that I would be more comfortable trying them on.. ALONE!!
Another peeve I have is when I see a totally totally cute shoe. and then realize its too damn narrow for me to squish my foot in. cuz it wont go over my damn bunion.. or the width of my foot making those oh so cute flats look like duck feet. LOL.
I’m ok with people seeing my feet now, like when we’re at the beach and whatnot.. but I dont like it when I wear sandal heels where the straps arent able to ‘confine’ or camoflauge the bunions. Or when the sole focus is my foot (i.e. the trying on shoes thing).
I think you can totally wear hot pink heels with your dress, especially since that’s what you want to do! And you should totally find a pair which will suit all the things we gals prefer to cover up! I do prefer peep toes over open toe heels though. Also, the platform is a total lifesaver for standing on your feet all day!
