The Wedding Guest Shoes We're Swearing By This Summer

If you haven’t already hopped on a plane for a wedding this season, chances are that you have one marked on your calendar in the next few months. That’s certainly the case with Who What Wear’s editors. And with more than a few weddings under our belt, we’ve learned some things about the best shoes to wear as a guest.

First, they need to be comfortable. No matter how amazing a pair of shoes is or how awesome they look with an outfit, you’re going to want to pass on them if your feet start to feel uncomfortable 30 minutes in—because no one wants to be on the sidelines when the dance party is getting started. Second, they need to be stylish. We’re fashion editors, after all, so the coolness factor is something that’s top of mind for us. Ahead our editors are weighing in with the wedding guest shoes they swear by that are both comfortable and cool.

“Unexpected color metallics and a square toe are my 1998 2018 heaven. By Far has been a big favorite of mine since I first learned about the brand this past spring.”

“Metallic and rainbow? So fun! You’ll make all your friends at the wedding want to buy them too. I promise.”

“I’m dying to own theses wedges. Simple but still so much fun. And oh yeah, they’re great for the dance floor.”

“I love everything from Danish brand Stine Goya, but these fun heels immediately caught my eye. The silhouette is simple, but the fuchsia print makes them feel fresh and perfect for summer.”

“An ankle strap and a semi-high block heel are my two wedding shoe requirements. This particular pair goes with everything and makes me think of late-’90s Carrie Bradshaw. I’ve admittedly been stalking them several times a week since they landed on Net-a-Porter.”

“I am loving this Cinderella shoe moment that’s happening right now. The fact that these shoes almost make it appear as if you’re wearing no shoes at all means these babies will go with any summer wedding dress of your choice.”

“I’d wear this fun metallic pair with just about any wedding guest dress. Even though they’re metallic, they’re actually so versatile.”

“I have several pairs of the original (very slightly different) version of these Saint Laurent heels (some light, some dark), and I wear them under every floor-length gown because they’re so comfortable and relatively sleek for platform, block-heel shoes.”

“I kid you not: I once wore a pair of Zara heels when I was a bridesmaid for a friend’s wedding. They were high heels and I had them on for over 12 hours, but not once did I even notice because they were so comfortable. Since then, I swear by Zara for special-occasion shoes.”

“The perfect shoes don’t exist… wait, they actually do and they are right here.”
