Eh, I definitely wear bright shoes more than white or ivory. I own one pair of ivory and its b/c I had to wear them in a wedding. Never to be worn again. haha

I guess I keep my dressy clothes pretty basic (thanks, budget) so I’ll pair a solid or simple dress with bright fun shoes.

Plus, I’d get ivory/white shoes so dirty, I really wouldn’t wear them again. At least color shoes hide wear/tear better. – I love blue, wear a lot of us, using it for the wedding and will get more use out of blue shoes than ivory. – Maybe that answers your question?

I never, ever, ever wear white shoes. Ever. Nude? Yes. White? Nope. I especially would have no use for white/ivory satin shoes. But blue shoes? Totally rewearable!

I actually don’t wear colored heels, so I went with colored for the wedding as a change of pace! I only own two pairs of heels, black and white. My total shoe count is 8 pairs of shoes, 10 if you count my golf shoes. I stick with neutral colors (natural, brown, black, and white) so that I can wear them with any outfit I have. Well I guess my gym shoes are blue, but that’s because they were cheap and on sale.

I’ve also never worn white heels, so I wouldn’t rewear them if I got them for the wedding.

i have a pair of black and white shoes and i love them, but they didn’t last long because i ended up scuffing the white so much with the heel. i must walk strangly or something because it doesn’t take long to scuff them. this is the only reason i dont wear white…anything! i get it so dirty!

I’ve never ever worn white heels, and can’t think of an outfit I have that they would pair better with than a different color.  Also, typical bridal white satin shoes do not seem as versatile to me as colored shoes.  They seem very… obviously bridal.

I guess a lot of people don’t go to church on Easter anymore. I have at least one day I can wear white heels (and I do)! 😛

i think it depends on the person – for some people a pair of colored heels might be a much better every-day fit in their wardrobe than white or ivory shoes.  I bought ivory shoes to go with my dress, but I fully intend to wear them again and I have plenty of things in my closet that I can wear them with.  That said, the same would really be true if my shoes were bright orange – the orange shoes would just be more of a statement accessory to whatever I wore them with rather than a coordinating accessory.

I wore ivory satin pumps for my wedding day. I wanted to be able to wear them again so I had them professionally dyed black afterwards. They look fantastic and now I can wear them with anything.

I have a pair of khaki colored heels.  That’s the closest to white I’ve ever gotten.

I last wore white shoes in 1986. I never considered them for my wedding day.

I am more of a minimalist-I chose a metallic and I think I will wear them again.

The ivory shoes I am planning on buying (waiting for a sale on them at dancestore) are not meant to be street shoes. I could in theory buy the non-suede soled style but I don’t want to twist my ankle (again) dancing and its bad form to wear street shoes on the dance floor.

I am contemplating dyeing them because my existing dance heels are a creamy color and with a short dress a pop of color would be fun.
