Want walkable wedding heels? Try dance shoes!

By on Apr. 19th

Capezio Ladies CaitlinIt's come up many times in the comments on my shoe posts, and an Offbeat Bride named Theresa emailed me to remind me again: if you want truly comfortable but also kinda fancy looking footwear for your wedding, you may want to try dance shoes. Because if you can dance in them, surely you can walk in them.

I mean seriously, Zappos' descriptions never include text like this:

The "Jemma" features a 2.5" flared heel plus dual density top lift with a soft bottom layer for shock absorption and a hard, grooved top layer for stability and traction.


Shock absorption, stability, and traction all sound like ideal features for wedding shoes… and dance shoes have the added bonus of being pretty affordable. Almost all the styles I'm about to show you are under $100, and most of them are under $70.
