Chie Mihara shoes for weddings and drooling #Wedding Shoes April 26 | Ariel Meadow Stallings offbeatbride 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. Can we talk about Chie Mihara?! She's a shoe designer in Spain who crafts insanely stylish but also freakishly comfortable shoes (she got her start working in an orthopedic shoe store). Now, these shoes are more on the Fluevog level of cost — we're talking $300 – $400. They're also on the Fluevog level of quality, because as much as we all love our cheap T.U.K.s or Iron Fists, those pleather suckers just aren't made to last. Chie Miharas, however, are life-long lovers that you buy for your wedding and wear forever.

The hearts! Hearts in my EYES! 2 agree Reply Sigh… the purple ones… Am I crazy to think you could wear them for business too? I mean, they're dark, right? 2 agree Reply TOTALLY for business. With some nice little slacks or a skirt? Completely professional. (I mean, and she makes a ton of black pumps, too.) 2 agree Reply I need that last one. Need. It. Reply AMAZING shoes – really good quality, cool design and she cares about comfort I can't wait to buy mine! Her website has even more shoes – she even has a dedicated 'wedding' shoe section. 1 agrees Reply Ooh oxfords for wedding shoes!!!! Reply I'm a card-carrying Chie Mihara fan club member, or I would be if there were cards… As for weddings, Ped Shoes put the idea of a bride wearing these silvery Chie sandals into my head. Now I love them and am about to splurge. Reply I am not engaged, I'm not getting engagd, I am not planning to get married ever. I just come here for the shoes… 2 agree Reply Agree. Chie Mihara is a great designer but I still haven't found my perfect shoes. I really like these ones http://www.theweddingshoes.com/ophelia-ivory-satin/ …although they are not Chie design… Reply I am wearing a red version of the "sour" design (the gold ones in this post with the roses that cascade down the t-strap) for my wedding in September. Found them at Lord & Taylor on sale. LOVE her shoes, they are so 1940's… Reply I got the t-straps with the hearts (in the first picture) for my wedding and fell completely in love. I don't wear heels and I cannot stress enough that these shoes are not only beautiful, but comfortable! I feel completely secure walking in them, which for me is saying a lot. I really never wear heels. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
