Black sparkling shoes for your noire wedding

Posted by

Baby Beauty - BlackMy shoe posts almost always focus on shoes that are either A) loud, like I wear 'em or B) pale, like the majority of brides wear 'em. I almost never include shoes that are brown or black because sometimes they can feel too “daily wear” and not WEDDING-Y enough. I guess if I'mma go non-traditional, I opt toward my own candy-colored tastes, instead of the shoes that are just like my heart: black and sparkling.

So today, in honor of all brides goth, noire, and just a little bit dark-hearted, I'm going to focus on the glittery black pumps and flats. Oh, and can you find the one pair of shoes that cost HALF my wedding budget? *SHRIEK!*

Comments on Black sparkling shoes for your noire wedding

  1. I am in LOVE with that random bonus shoe! I wore black shoes with my ivory dress for my wedding b/c I had such a hard time finding shoes that were comfortable and fit. Ended up that my shoes just pretty much faded into the background – they do not draw the eye in pictures – and I’ve worn them A LOT since the wedding. Yeay for black wedding shoes!

  2. +1 love the bonus shoe

    I was looking for the expensive one in the tall shoes & it looks like the smallest, most unassuming, is the most expensive instead. $545 flats?! Holy what!

    • Try the shoe above the $540 flat. I’m pretty sure that’s the budget buster.

      • ” to be fair: A) Alexander McQueen B) sequined skull on the front”

        Fair is definitely fair!

  3. It doesnt seem to matter what color shoes are, I will love them if they are sparkly!!

  4. Those $2.3k shoes had better have their own internal booster jets. The heel looks big enough!

    • No but they do get basic cable.
      I have mixed feelings about Zanottis. On one hand, I think they should be commended for having a new and distinctive silhouette. On the other hand… is it so new? Cows and horses have been sporting this style for eons.

  5. I think I guessed the expensive shoe with my first click–the Giuseppe Zanottis? Or as I am calling them, sparkly space boots? That’s… impossible. But if someone buys them, I want pics!

  6. I think black for wedding shoes is just so swanky, especially if the wedding party in in black. Think of ’em as little foot tuxedos.

      • Ariel, you just crack me up. I wondered when the tuxedo shoes would show up! Modcloth had this kickass pair of booties that had a dress shirt collar on the top with ties on them. FUCKING TIES. Those shoes made my life but they stopped selling them. 🙁

      • I need those so badly all I can do is sit here and scream “AHHH! AHHH! AHHH!” in my head.

      • I just keep thinking, would somebody *actually* wear these? I see those things and I just think I could use them to kill a spider without having to haul out the vacuum, but as a girl who spent $80 on wedding heels (4 times the price of the shoes I wear daily), I just can’t even conceive of dropping several thousand bucks on uncomfortable space boots!

  7. Thank you for this roundup! I will wear a black and white dress and I will totally rock black shoes (with a hint of white) which I’ll gladly wear again and again once the day’s over.

  8. I’m wearing black shoes to my wedding… I love these! I’m wearing a pair of black velvet 13cm heels with antique brooches on the peeptoe 🙂
