I love French Sole flats, despite the fact that they have no arch support and are in no way designed for serious walking. They’re your classic “get into the car and out of the car and into a chair” kind of shoe. My own wedding shoes came from French Sole, as I’d never seen anything prettier than the gold and deep red satin slim-fitting, low cut ballet flats.
As it turned out, they were comfy enough to wear throughout the wedding, even though I was on my feet for most of the day. That wasn’t the best part, however. No, the best part was the fun splash of color they added to my otherwise gold ensemble.
I’m not saying shoes from French Sole will cradle your feet like a cloud or even wear particularly well, but they did work for me. I needed to wear flats — or chunky heels but I hate chunky heels — as my aisle was sandy and my dance floor was grass. Though I did have a backup pair of gold leather flip flips ::cue the gasps:: I never had cause to put them on.
If your wedding shoes are (or were) hipper or more colorful than the usual white satin or silk pump, let’s hear about them!
