What shoes do I wear for the longest day of my life?

OMG. Shoes. Shoes. SHOES!

Dress? Check. Makeup? Check. But what about shoes? What should you be looking for? What’s more important: style or comfort? You can relax, because we’ve got you covered. Here are 4 tips for picking your perfect pair for your perfect day:

1. Height

Maybe this isn’t your first time wearing heels all day. Maybe you like to wear heels every day. No matter what your style is, you will need to make sure that you are comfortable with the height of your heel! Four inch stilettos are not for everybody, and those of us who do wear them have had a lot of practice (more on that later). “How high is just right?” Well, that depends on you. A beautiful pair of heels can make your outfit, but you definitely don’t want to have to focus on your walk all night: a height that you are comfortable with is key to enjoying yourself AND slaying on the dance floor.

2. Platform Shoes:

High heels get a bad reputation for being uncomfortable, but I have good news: this doesn’t always have to be the case. When shopping for your shoes, you may want to keep in mind that finding a pair of platform shoeswill make it easier on long-term comfort, since they give you a little more cushion. We believe that you’ll notice the difference between platform shoes and non-platform shoes over time, so if you’re on the side of having less experience, we would recommend platform heels for your big day so you won’t have to worry about unnecessary pain. While you’re shopping for your pair, consider asking about platform shoesand testing out the difference. It’s always best to make it easier on yourself if you can!

3. Practice!

Imagine this: You’ve picked out comfy heels, and the color is perfect. Every damain your court compliments your style, and you make it to the end of the night. But you begin to realize that you’ve walked around in these shoes for no more than an hour or two, and you have no idea what you’re doing! Don’t be too eager to take your new shoes out to soon- each pair of heels is going to feel a little different, and we recommend that you practice walking in your shoes before your Quinceanera. Don’t skip this step! Try walking around at home on a lazy day or even practicing your best model walk to some music. You’ll thank yourself later.

4. Color

Are you still undecided on the color of your shoes? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. First, we would like to recommend silver or gold because…

  • They will give good contrast with any color dress while remaining neutral

  • You can match them with your jewelry and other accessories

  • You can wear them again to other events

Not into shiny shoes? No worries, your shoes are your choice after all! Just make sure to double check with a friend or family member. It’s always useful to have a second set of eyes!

We hope that the tips we’ve covered will help you pick your pair of shoes. You’re all set to slay with style! While you can always switch back to flats or sneakers, high heels are an iconic look and a part of Quinceaneratradition.
