Black sparkling shoes for your noire wedding

This post features offbeat affiliates, meaning that if you buy something featured, you'll be financially supporting this site's mission of bringing awesomeness to readers everywhere.

Baby Beauty - BlackMy shoe posts almost always focus on shoes that are either A) loud, like I wear 'em or B) pale, like the majority of brides wear 'em. I almost never include shoes that are brown or black because sometimes they can feel too "daily wear" and not WEDDING-Y enough. I guess if I'mma go non-traditional, I opt toward my own candy-colored tastes, instead of the shoes that are just like my heart: black and sparkling.

So today, in honor of all brides goth, noire, and just a little bit dark-hearted, I'm going to focus on the glittery black pumps and flats. Oh, and can you find the one pair of shoes that cost HALF my wedding budget? *SHRIEK!*

Random bonus shoe!

Pros and Contrast Heel

  1. I am in LOVE with that random bonus shoe! I wore black shoes with my ivory dress for my wedding b/c I had such a hard time finding shoes that were comfortable and fit. Ended up that my shoes just pretty much faded into the background – they do not draw the eye in pictures – and I've worn them A LOT since the wedding. Yeay for black wedding shoes!

  2. +1 love the bonus shoe

    I was looking for the expensive one in the tall shoes & it looks like the smallest, most unassuming, is the most expensive instead. $545 flats?! Holy what!

    • Try the shoe above the $540 flat. I'm pretty sure that's the budget buster.

      1 agrees
    • Yeah, those $540 Alexander McQueen flats are pretty boggling. I mean, to be fair: A) Alexander McQueen B) sequined skull on the front. But yeah. Shoes like that are meant for window shopping!

      • " to be fair: A) Alexander McQueen B) sequined skull on the front"

        Fair is definitely fair!

  3. It doesnt seem to matter what color shoes are, I will love them if they are sparkly!!

  4. Those $2.3k shoes had better have their own internal booster jets. The heel looks big enough!

    • No but they do get basic cable.
      I have mixed feelings about Zanottis. On one hand, I think they should be commended for having a new and distinctive silhouette. On the other hand… is it so new? Cows and horses have been sporting this style for eons.

      2 agree
  5. I think I guessed the expensive shoe with my first click–the Giuseppe Zanottis? Or as I am calling them, sparkly space boots? That's… impossible. But if someone buys them, I want pics!

  6. Black + glam?! I'll take a pair of each plz k thx.

  7. I think black for wedding shoes is just so swanky, especially if the wedding party in in black. Think of 'em as little foot tuxedos.

    2 agree
      • Ariel, you just crack me up. I wondered when the tuxedo shoes would show up! Modcloth had this kickass pair of booties that had a dress shirt collar on the top with ties on them. FUCKING TIES. Those shoes made my life but they stopped selling them. :(

        2 agree
      • I need those so badly all I can do is sit here and scream "AHHH! AHHH! AHHH!" in my head.

        1 agrees
    • Oh yeah, and they cost $230, compared to $2300!

      0 agree
      • I just keep thinking, would somebody *actually* wear these? I see those things and I just think I could use them to kill a spider without having to haul out the vacuum, but as a girl who spent $80 on wedding heels (4 times the price of the shoes I wear daily), I just can't even conceive of dropping several thousand bucks on uncomfortable space boots!

  8. Thank you for this roundup! I will wear a black and white dress and I will totally rock black shoes (with a hint of white) which I'll gladly wear again and again once the day's over.

  9. I'm wearing black shoes to my wedding… I love these! I'm wearing a pair of black velvet 13cm heels with antique brooches on the peeptoe :)
