    I love slingbacks.. and with the streachy band they are easier to get a proper fit.

    It really depends on the brand, if its a good brand then sling backs are more comfortable..

    I looooooooooooove sling backs but sometimes they don’t stay on the back of my feet. Do you think the next size up in the full shoe would still be too big if you put insoles in them? Buy the Dr. Scholl’s super duper padded in soles and put them in and try that out. I know I have to buy the next size up if I use insoles and it would work out perfectly to have that extra padding/support on your wedding day.

    I’ve always found that slingbacks stay on a little better. But, that may vary foot to foot!

    Oh man, this is a tough call! I’m so sad that your gold pumps were too snug – I was so excited for you about those!  But I recall you were struggling with the idea of a gold shoe with your dress, so maybe the silver is your answer!  In regards to pumps vs. slingbacks, I’d go with your preference.  Some girls have trouble wearing slingbacks, because the slingback part slips off the back of their foot.  I’m voting slingback, but just because I love them! 🙂

    Slingbacks almost always fit better because you can adjust them. I personally think the silver slingbacks are super pretty, even though I’m not too fond of peep-toes.

    I don’t think you should wear shoes that are uncomfortable or ill-fitting no matter what, and with an option as nice as the silver shoes I think the choice is an easy one.

    I have to say, contrary to what a few people have said, I have had bad luck with sling backs. They always seem to fall off of my heel, and the last thing I want to worry about when walking down the aisle is pulling a Cinderella–there is NO WAY I’m getting that thing back on underneath all of those layers of dress! If you feel like they fit you well, and you have walked around in them at home as a trial and still feel comfy in them, then go for it. I decided to go non-sling back–in fact, I made sure I have an ankle strap so those suckers aren’t going anywhere!! (Can you tell that I’m a little paranoid that my shoes might fall off?? LOL)

    I think you might want to find new shoes all together. The sling backs can annoy some people. Going up in a size in a full back never works for me. Move along…

    I have the *worst* time keeping slingbacks on my foot.  And I tend to get whatever dress or pants I’m wearing stuck between my foot and the shoe when I’m walking.

    I like the look of the full back better but I like the functionality of slingbacks better. I am looking for slingbacks myself because then if the sizing is a little off, it will give me some reassurance that they will stay on my feet!

    If the slingbacks fit you perfectly, go with them. Dr. Scholls and other insole-making companies have a fair amount of products out there that you can stick on the inside of the strap to make it less slippy and minimize the chance of Cinderella moments.
