Formal/ Occasion alternatives to heels?

(8 Posts)

I never wear heels, far too painful!

However, I have a few formal events this summer (weddings, etc.), so need some nice elegant alternatives. I usually just wear ballet flats, but they don't feel formal enough for a wedding?

Any ideas?

P.S. I only wear FAKE leather/suede (veggie), so please don't suggest anything using real stuff.

What are you wearing them with - skirts / dresses or trousers?

Wedge heels can be really good if you find normal heels painful (they don't have to be high), and they have the advantage of being grass friendly so you don't get stuck in the lawn smile

Not to everyone's taste, but Irregular Choice have very wearable heels, flats and wedges, and are largely leather free

Do you want certified vegan/veggie shoes, or are you happy just to have non leather and not worry about the glues/dyes etc? Sorry not trying to sound twattish just trying to know what to suggest smile

Beyond skin have some lovely flats

Oh wow! Irregular Choice looks fun, but not my style!

The shoes don't have to be vegan-branded, just no leather or fur! Fake leather is fine!

Any ideas?!?

Depends on what colour your outfit is though:

There are lots of gold or silver sparkly flat sandals about or are you wanting a closed toe?
