Heels—we can all agree they’re gorgeous. Blisters? Not so much. In an era when we’re becoming more empowered and in touch with ourselves, being able to, well, actually walk, is key. The great news is you don’t have to choose between comfort and style. Shoes that look and feel good aren’t unicorns—they actually exist!—and they’ll be your sidekick whether you’re hustling or dancing the night away. Today, we’re focusing on the latter—because we expect that’s exactly what you’ll be doing on your wedding day.

Scroll down to learn all about comfy bridal shoe options + an AWESOME GIVEAWAY!

Harmless Heels

Whether it’s low heels, block heels, or wedges, think any type of heel except the sky-high stiletto number that only models can wear as if a walk in the park—because they get paid to. If you’re seeking added height, easy heels are your gals. They will provide you with comfort and support without the excruciating pain caused by high, skinny heels.

—Brides are recommending Bella Belle and Badgley Mishka!

Bold Boots

Boots weren’t only made for walking—but for dancing, too! As long as it doesn’t feature a stiletto heel (which we’re clearly avoiding at all costs), any boot will be a reliable option for your big day—bonus points if you’re going for a rustic theme. Try a traditional cowboy style or opt for something modern and edgy with minimal detailing.

—Brides are recommending Frye, Doc Martens, Seychelles, and vintage styles!

Sleek Sneakers

Ah, sneakers—the embodiment of comfort. It really doesn’t get any cushier than this. If what you’re picturing when we say “sneakers” is a dad-style, chunky, neon-trimmed sneaker, then allow us to illustrate. Think a minimalist, white leather sneaker; or maybe a textured style with some shimmery threads or added sparkle; or pop-of-color sneakers to match your lovely groom.

—Brides are strongly recommending Kate Spade x Keds and Converse! Other popular brands? All Birds, Vans, and Vionic Shoes.

Barefoot Bliss

The way nature intended it: ditching shoes altogether. Going barefoot is a great alternative if you’re having a beach wedding. Side note: please direct your attention to the glistening barefoot sandals Chablis donned on her wedding day.

We’ve got some barefoot-forward brides in our midst, too.
