blue flip flops??? That’s what I did. I ordered a pair from J.crew with a flower on them. A plus side with flip flops, if you are like me, that you can wear them again after the wedding.

I LOVE those, theyre gorgeous! I am a Bridesmaid or Best Man shoe bride and I will agree, the heel is super steep on my Carlos but they are just too gorgeous not to wear (plus my Fiance says it makes my legs look hot lol).

You know you can have the heel reduced, right? You can’t do like an inch or anything because it will ruin the shoe but I think you can do 1/4 of an inch or even up to a 1/ inch. Before you completely write them as a shoe failure, I would take them to a professional and see how much they can take off the heel. To me it’d be so worth it, theyre gorgeous!! Would at least a 1/4 help??!!

I was going to suggest the same thing as mrsmurraytobe. Can you bring them to a (really good) shoemaker & ask what he can do with them? What about checking back on the Bridesmaid or Best Man site to see what other styles come in that color?

I was gonna suggest having them cut down too… a professional will know how much they could take off without ruining the look of the shoe

i was considering getting these shoes (Hyde).  i bought Bridesmaid or Best Man Randall and they were too high (4″) so I was hoping the Hyde would be ok since it’s 3.5″…  I was also considering those Kate Spade shoes.  they are so cute!
