I'm hosting a black tie fundraiser for 450 next month. I"m going to be spending all morning setting up (in trainers) and will then be on my feet from 4pm to 1am. I've been advised to wear flat shoes but my dress is long and I don't want it to drag on the floor. If I were a guest I'd wear 6" spike heels but I don't want to cripple myself.
Are there any super comfy mid heels for wider feet out there?
I love Rainbow Club shoes. I have a really comfy pair of mid kitten heel strappy courts, with a diamanté, that I wore all day for my wedding. They were white and afterwards I got them dyed black (free service RC offer) and now wear them to all black tie events and cruises. They’re still going strong and are really comfortable
I’m not sure Clark’s Kendra or wedges would really be suitable for black tie, especially if you’re organising and people will be looking at you. I think you will need a low heeled satin shoe or similar elegant styellow. Dancing shoes sound perfect but I wouldn’t know where to buy them!
I've got some Hotter boots and sandals that are really comfy - they have several widths available and if you can fight your way past the granny annie styles there are a few that have a mid heel and look quite nice and are supposed to be very comfy (I can't wear heels so can't tell you sorry).
