To take in mind before choosing your comfortable women's wedding shoes
Once you have in mind the ‘vibe’ of the event and its general theme (classic, rock, bohemian, country or color-related), you can start looking for the perfect and comfortable women's shoes that will be your ally during the whole weekend. Don’t forget to adapt your outfits to your destination, the season and the chosen theme.
If your wedding takes place during European summer months from May to September, here are a few criterias to help you choose a nice pair of comfortable chic sandals:
Shoe type: open-toe shoes are best for hot weather, when your feet tend to swell. Chic, comfortable heeled sandals will be your allies during the ceremony. Plus, you'll be glad you don't have to worry about your comfort during the cocktail party or the speech if you're the bridesmaid!
Material: we advise you to opt for breathable materials like soft leather shoes, which will, as its name says, allow your feet to breathe. It's important that you feel comfortable in your shoes all day long.
Heels: we suggest you choose sandals with low heels or medium heels. More specifically, women's sandals with a 5 cm heel are ideal for your comfort. High enough to make you look chic, and low enough to make you feel comfortable. Your posture will be more balanced and stabilized: you'll feel totally confident. Choose sandals with small, square heels for greater stability. They'll also prevent you from sinking into the lawn if the cocktail party takes place in a pretty park or garden! For your comfort and your back, do not exceed 5 cm. Heels that are too high can cause back pain and break your posture.
The soles: opt for soles thicker than the average, that act like a ‘cushion’ this way you will feel good in your shoes. Our Camia interchangeable sandals are designed with a recyclable 1 cm thick EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) insole, making you feel like you are walking on clouds. This material guarantees exceptional comfort to dance all night long!
- Straps: like a fashion accessory, they'll pimp your look to add that final touch. Express your personality by choosing the straps you prefer, they could be black, brown, gold or even glitter!
Just in Case Tips:
💡 Tip no. 1: Sometimes, the friction of leather on your skin can cause blisters. To avoid suffering unnecessary pain, we recommend that you take a few bandages with you in case small blisters form.
💡 Tip no. 2: If your shoes have a thin sole, equip yourself with half insoles that fit in the front of your shoes. Some half-soles are made of transparent silicone, so you can insert them even in sandals or barefoot shoes. They'll help you feel good in your heels all night long!
💡 Tip no. 3: Have another pair of shoes ready in case something goes wrong with the first pair.
💡 Tip no. 4: Last but not least, if the event lasts several days, you'll certainly need other outfits and therefore a second or third pair of comfortable, elegant shoes.
