I guess I'm on a roll with my "special needs" wedding shoes series.

After my "bigger shoes" post a couple weeks ago, I got a lot of requests for not just larger sizes — but wider widths.

Ok, ladies! I aim to serve, and so I'm wrangling up a collection of loud, proud, wide shoes that would help you add some offbeat oomph to your feet on your wedding day.

Most of these are from Torrid, which means they're not only wider widths — they're super affordable.

Like, less than $40 affordable!

System Nude Patent Leather Heel (Wide Width)

Berry Suede System Heel (Wide Width)

Fit In Clouds - Gold Sequin Flats (Wide Width)

    • the rainbow shoes, and also the stripey ones, are from a company called iron fist based out of the UK. they have awesome shoes. there are several posts on this site already with the zombie shoes. same company ๐Ÿ™‚ i have many from them. just an fyi.

  1. OMG!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! I have ridiculously wide feet and whenever we go to the cute shoe shop I always end up sitting on the couch, looking at all the other girls trying on cute shoes! ๐Ÿ™‚ THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! AND…I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR ZEBRA PRINT SHOES!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love these specialty shoe round ups that you come up with. They're absolutely awesome.

    I know you did the one with flats, but how about heels that aren't stilettos next? I just can't walk in those suckers. Actually, can you just do all my shopping for me? Thanks.

  3. The shoes are so beautiful, I'm jealous!

    Maybe you could do one of these for freaksihly undersized feet like mine sometime?

    (I'm a narrow 5, my mother is a 4! We'd like wedding shoes that aren't from the kids section!)

  4. Ladies, if you have wide feet but can't find cute shoes don't just suffer through thinking it will only be a couple of hours. TRUST ME! lol I now have several stress fractures in my feet just from my wedding day and it still hurts almost 4 months later. Take care of your feet!

    • And that damage can be chronic, too, if you suffer through on a regular basis – ask my mom about her bunion surgery. ๐Ÿ˜›

      • yeah, I have wide feet because of my "bunions" that I've had all my life. It was just extra bone growth in that area and on my ankles. All of my heels are wide except my wedding shoes because I ordered them online and there were no other sizes left when I went to return (already they were big in the lenght as I ordered a size up for width reasons.. so I figured it would just be a couple of hours and I would kick them off.. nope.. didn't happen and now I am learning from my mistake.. doh! lol

  5. Just as a warning, I bought those IronFist Zebra Rainbow heels for my senior prom, and they broke within 15 minutes of me putting them on. Luckily I had my ducktape shoes, since my main dress was ducktape. I returned the broken shoes to Hot Topic, and upon inquiring learned that I was not the only one who had had serious issues with them. IronFist has some incredible designs, but need to do some serious reworking of workmanship.

    • Yeah, as much as I love featuring a post full of $40 shoes (instead of the usual $100-$150 shoes), the simple reality is … cheap shoes are usually cheaply made. :/

      • in my experience it isnt all iron fist shoes. i have had many over the years and only one has broken on my after i got myself caught in a crack in the concrete…

    • Hmm… I wonder, is it just the zebra rainbow heels, or all Iron Fist pumps? I have a couple of pairs and I haven't had any problems with them breaking. I also have a friend that has at least half a dozen pairs of Iron Fist heels and she's never had any issues either.

      • If it is just the zebra rainbow pumps I would love to know, because I adore IronFist shoes. I just need to know I won't have the same experience if I buy another pair.

  6. These shoes are beautiful!!! But I have the opposite problem. My feet are very narrow, and incredibly small–think Chinese foot-binding and light-up Barney tennies. Any help for a size 5 shoe?

  7. I'm actually wearing those rainbow Iron Fist ones to my graduation ๐Ÿ˜€ and I have horribly wide feet, and they're reasonably comfortable considering I never wear heels.

  8. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm always on the hunt for pretty wide width shoes and I totally forgot about Torrid. These are seriously awesome!

  9. FLUEVOG!!!!!
    they're not billed as wide shoes, and some of them definitely are not, but if you read the customer reviews on their site you get a good idea of the ones that will work. yea they're on the more expensive side, but they're well made and they'll last for evahh so you definitely get your money's worth.

    i have fred flintstone feet (read big, wide, and rectangular with the added bonus of high arches), but i tracked down the last pair ANYWHERE of red and pink zazas in my giant size and i could run a friggin marathon in those bitches!!! they've got decent height heel with wicked stability and they're squishy at the ball of your foot. no more days of numbness post fancy shoe wearing!

    go look, go look!

  10. I love those rainbow heels from Iron Fist! I think a pair of them would look fantastic covered in rhinestones. I may just have to do that!
