LOVE/HATE: The ‘Cinderella You Ain’t’ Edition

Okay, can someone please tell me why anyone, brides or otherwise, would want to wear clear shoes? Seems to me that the end result would be a gruesome view of slightly squished feet… possibly even very moist and sweaty feet. I wore jellies as a kid in the 80s, so I know what happens to feet in shoes that don’t breath!

Here we have two examples of shoes, both being marketed toward the bride. The first pair of clear bridal shoes differentiates itself with a silver toe, while the second appears to have been bedazzled to within an inch of its life. In case it wasn’t clear, I hate both.

What say you?

    No. Never clear shoes. They are uncomfortable, and unattractive, and always make me think of strippers. No. Especially as bridal footwear.

  2. Melissa B. says:

    My feet are sweating and developing blisters just looking at these photos. Hate.

    Burning hate. Visibly sweaty feet are never attractive. The only thing going for pair number two is that it’s really more of a sandal with a small clear element, so at least feet would be able (except for the area just above the toes) to breathe a little. But then the Bedazzler on Steroids general look of them does away with any and all good will I might otherwise have tried to extend.

    The silver toe ones…just no. There is nothing to mitigate.

    If you want to show off your feet on your wedding day, I recommend a great pedicure and either non-bedazzled sandals or a barefoot extravaganza, depending on the formality and venue of the event.

    I’ve always suspected that Cinderella ditched that glass slipper on purpose because it was cold, sweaty, and chipped all to hell and back again. So there.

    I bought my dress off of ebay and the previous owner included her bridal accessories including her clear plastic shoes. They were henious. I threw them out before getting a picture. I wish I had. They were pretty funny.

  5. NO JOKE! My friend was a bridesmaid for our college friend, and she got stuck wearing these clear plastic shoes… UG. She hated them instantly, and they were every bit as uncomfortable and horrible (and yes, squishy sweaty feet visible to all) as they might seem. Luckily, the wedding reception was really dull with no music, no dancing, no anything, so she didn’t have to suffer longer than the 30 minutes of the ceremony. Then, they got chucked. 🙂

    Hate. I have an active dislike for clear high-heeled shoes. (Cute little jelly sandals are something altogether different.) Like Sarah, I always think of strippers (and porn stars) when I see them. When the time comes, the last thing I want anyone to think of when I walk down the aisle is a stripper. Yeuch.

  7. If you’re going to wear them, hose are a necessity. Unless, of course, you want to rip off at least three layers of dermis when you remove the shoes…

    C’mon. They’d go great with your Pnina Tornai hooker dress.

    On some level, I understand the appeal–I loved Cinderella, I want to like them–but I just can’t. I’ve put my feet into that kind of clear slide before, and it just never goes well.

    Ew, yuck and NO! Not ever!

  11. Claire says:

  12. @Claire Sorry, hun, I looked around and wasn’t able to find them again. Admitted it was a quick look, but these particular shoes may have been discontinued. However, there are still plenty of clear plastic bridal shoes out there!

  14. @Claire One sec – did you mean the top pair or the bottom pair? Because I have another thought, which might yield better results.
