Hey Bees! I’m trying to decide on my shoes for my wedding day, and I’m torn between a few different brands:
1. Benjamin Adams- I love the Charlize, and since the beginning of wedding planning have wanted these. I tried them on last week, and they are so-so in comfort as far as I can tell in 5 minutes. Anyone who wore them all night– comfort??
2. Badgley Mischka- I tried these on as well, and love the look. I have heard that they are not that comfortable. Fiancee loved the way they looked, as well. I’d get them in navy, to match bridesmaids dresses and be my something blue.
3. Angela Nuran- Love the starletta and this other style, and love that they are supposedly very comfortable. Any input on comfort? Not sure what color I’d do, but probably navy again.
4. Hey Lady Shoes- Again, supposed to be very comfortable! I cannot try them on, because there aren’t any in the area. Colors are limited. But I love the look of a couple of styles.
I am torn! Any suggestions on how to decide? Which were most comfortable?

Do you see how far inset the heel on the second and third pairs of shoes are? Those are both going to be REALLY uncomfortable! They’re going to mess with your center of balance. I regularly wear 6″ heels, and I won’t wear inset heels like those!
What was uncomfortable about the first pair? The stitching or the fit? With enough wear (I like to wear mine around the house when Fiance isn’t home), the stitching will stop bothering you. If the fit is off, though, they’re a no-go!
So I guess I would say the fourth pair!

@BrandNewBride: Thanks so much for the tip! 🙂 I didn’t know that! The only thing uncomfortable about the first pair was that the edges rubbed against the top/side of my foot slightly. It might get better with some breaking in, though, as the material softens.

The second pair I would not even consider just by looking at the shape. Especially if you plan on wearing that shoe for the entire wedding and reception. By construction and shape of the shoe, you would be walking with all of your weight on the ball of your foot. Most shoes especially heels that I plan on wearing for longer periods you want to make sure you can distribute your weight a little to the heel also (hence why wedges are usually considerably more comfortable)
#3 might not be so bad since there is a platform and it decreases the height of the heel but still gives you the illusion.
#4 are beautiful and timeless, they don’t look too high and they have a nice platform to them. I always find platforms are considerably more comfortable than shoes without since most time the platform allows for a little more cushion.
Ultimately I would take my time with shoes, try every pair on. I would walk around them in the store for a little. Make sure they are confortable and you can bear to wear them for long periods of time especially since you will be standing for HOURS in them.
