So, this might be creepy. Prepare yourself. When you buy shoes through my wedding shoe posts, I can see what you buy.

…I KNOW, RIGHT!?

I can't see who buys what (your purchasing secrets are safe with me!) but I can see what shoes are the most popular with Offbeat Brides. Once you get over the 1984 implications, it's kind of awesome because it means that rather than just inflict my taste on you, I can show off a few of the shoes that y'all love best. So, let's take a look at the shoes Offbeat Brides have been loving this month…

But these are just the shoes you've actually purchased — I can't see the shoes you're oggling. Care to share those, ladies?

  1. I think this is a totally awesome idea–posting the products that we ferreal buy is both a fabulous indication of the wide array of brides that visit this community as well as a testimonial to the wide array of products these vendors offer! I like to see what we're loving right now!

    • Oh god. Those are amazing. I was POSITIVE that I had my wedding shoes picked out to buy but now I am certainly wavering. Thank you for sharing!

      1 agrees
    • I have those, although I haven't had the time yet to make a few changes so I can actually wear then with my slim legs. But it was a hassle until I finally got them. I never got the package so I wrote an e-mail and they told me they'd send them out a second time – but nothing ever arrived. In the end after dozens of e-mails I just wanted my money back – but even that took ages and lots of e-mails with "oh, we haven't done that yet? sorry, I'll do it immediately" and still nothing happening. In the end someone felt sorry though and I got my money back as well as the shoes sent out – I honestly doubt they were sent the first two times they claimed they had, apparently no one knows what the other one's doing at clockwork couture 🙁 a pity, because even if I got my boots in the end (after half a year hassle) I don't trust them enough anymore to order anything else from the pretty things they have in stock :/

      1 agrees
      • Yeah, Clockwork Couture has some trouble with customer service sometimes. I won a contest back in September and I just finally got my winnings last week. And only 2 out of the 8 items I won they still carry so they had to substitute. I e-mailed them quite a few times and got the "we'll send it right out" but they never did. I love them but like you said, I don't trust 'em. =(

        1 agrees
    • OMG, I absolutely adore Clockwork Couture. I don't have any of their heels, but I have the Steampunk Casual Boot–best boots I've ever owned. And I have to say I've had nothing but great experiences with their customer service. They are a small company though.

      1 agrees
  2. those clockwork couture shoes are spec-FLYING-tacular!
    oooooOOOOooo! and the shiny green ones! and the Anne Klein! and…
    I have been oogling all things Fluevog – and I actually ordered some online – YAY clearance prices!
    I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait until they arrive!

    1 agrees
  3. i bought a pair of peep toe heels that are full on sparkle! looks like someone slathered on a layer of glue then dumped a TON of silver glitter on them. topped off with a silver gliter bow at the ankle. super hot, and like NOTHING i'd ever wear again. these are for the pre-wedding events and ceremony. afterwards i'll be slipping into my custom made cherry blossom red flats from hydraheart on etsy. yum!

    1 agrees
  4. Nothing beats my comfy shoes that both I and my hubby wore for our wedding. CROCS 😛 I had lime green while he wore black, I don't know how some lovely brides cope wearing super heels all day!

    1 agrees
  5. I bought fabulous red (faux-) snakeskin pumps on sale at Macy's. They have a cutely rounded toe, as I'm not one for pointy shoes either, and I adore them! (Now I just have to relearn how to walk in heels, because I'm envisioning myself falling arse over teakettle on the alter. I will definitely be picking up something comfy for the reception!)

    1 agrees
  6. I just bought my wedding shoes from shoebuy.com last week and got them in the other day! They fit great, but if anyone else happens to like any of the shoes from funtasma, I think they all run a size small. I normally wear a 9 to a 9 1/2, and I had to get these in a 10, but they fit great! Just make sure to read the reviews first. Shoebuy is kind of like zappos because they offer free shipping both ways if you have to return or exchange anything! Anyways, here's theh link

    (P.S., Mine are the red ones, but they also come in green, black, pinstripe, pink, and cheetah!)

    1 agrees
  7. I have those Vivienne Westwood shoes in cream, but only because they didn't come in hot pink at the time…

    1 agrees
  8. I'm considering finding a pair of Fluevogs but since I'm still a year and a half out from the wedding I'm waiting to see what they'll have in stock. I was originally intending on wearing flats (and will probably have a backup pair, especially for the dancing!) but the one pair of Fluevogs I own has made me think I might actually be able to comfortably wear heels for the wedding! A big plus as I love heels but never wear them because I've never found a comfortable enough pair to wear for a whole day.

  9. I fell in love with those Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon shoes, i saw a perfect powder blue pair with a red heart…and they were in the sale for £39!!!! they sold out in my size 🙁 i was heart broken!!!!
    one day i'll have them, one day!
