Last time I posted about my search for shoes and my purchase of 3.5″ heels despite the fact that I swore off heels a few years ago. So you’re thinking, ‘you dumbass.’ But wait! I *did* learn a little something through my shoe trials and tribulations. I know it is almost a given that my Tahari slingbacks will hurt me after a few hours into the wedding. So I began a search for comfortable flip-flops that I could change into.
I wanted white flip flops (keep it simple) and a tall heel (at least 3″) so my dress hem wouldn’t drag on the ground. This search was a bit obstructed by inflated “wedding prices” (not many people besides brides want white flip flops with a heel above 1″) and a shape that did not do much for the comfort aspect.
For example, these following flips are cute, but the shape of the arch is still curved at an angle that I might as well be wearing regular heels. In addition, they cost $30 or more, whereas I was really hoping to find something around $20.
Eventually, I found these from mydivascloset for $17:
These have an elevated platform for the whole foot (only a slight arch), and are under $20.
Smart, eh? Well, it doesn’t stop there. It might rain the day of our wedding (our locale is known for that during March), so I also got these:
Yeah, not so dumb right? Or, maybe you say—I could have just foregone the heels altogether and gotten the flip flops, and your shoe expenses would be half of what it is. You have a point, but I am too busy hobbling away in my hot pink patent leather peep toes.
Do you have back-up shoes for comfort or weather purposes?
