Not all Louboutins hurt…. There are some incredibly comfortable ones, others not so much.

I wore a pair of suede pumps with a small heel (3.5″), they were Salvatore Ferragamo and beyond comfortable, I wore them from 3:30 pm until 2:30 am when I changed into sneakers for the cab ride home.

I didn’t even consider flats.. With the exception of boots and sneakers.. I don’t like flat shoes.

Do you normally wear Loubs? If not, I don’t know if I would try for the first time on my wedding day but that’s just me. They can be very painful and the more comfortable ones tend to look a bit more mature.

I wore Jimmy Choos and they were comfortable all day until the last two hours.

mrsreardon2bee:  I own a decent amount and some are great and some are not. Open toe, lower heal, platform loubs, no problemo. My booties kill me but I love them. The higher the heal, the more pain. my wedding shoes were closed toe, platform, 4 inch heels. I did take them off once dancing started, but honestly, my heavy dress hurt way more than the shoes did!

I was thinking of wearing my Pigalle Follies, but now will be wearing a louboutin flat. My pigalles were SUPER painful until I broke them in (using thick socks and a hair dryer lol). Once I broke them in, I wear them all the time with literally zero pain ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t own any Loubs so I can’t speak to their comfort level. However, I know that when my feet hurt after a night out it reallllly sucks and all I can think about is getting home and taking them off. 

IMO comfortable shoes are a must on a wedding day because your feet are the last things you want to be worried about. 

Also, even if you want new shoes for your wedding day, I would reccommend wearing them around the house to break them in.

I wore Loub’s for my wedding. In fact, I wore them for my Chinese tea ceremony and reception, cousin’s graduation as well. They are strappy 4 inch heels.  I have size 5 feet so 4 inches without a platform is pretty high for me. 

Were they comfortable? They weren’t bad. I say I got about 4 hours of standing in them before my feet got sore. My feet didn’t get cut up at all during any of the events.

steph91:  My Pigalles were so comfortable right away! Its so funny how different the same shoe can feel to someone. Some Louboutins I can’t even stand up in they’re so painful.

mrsreardon2bee:  I agree with other Bees: it depends on the style of the shoe. My Simple Pump in 80mm are comfortable while my Cora 100mm hurt alot.

steph91:  Can you explain how you broke into the Pigalles using the thick socks and hair dryer? I’ve heard of people inserting Ziploc bags of water into the shoe and then freezing them so they can expand. Not sure I want to risk it with my Loubs…
