The 8 Best Statement Shoes for the Color-Obsessed Bride
Shop Story

There are a slew of considerations when shopping for statement shoes to wear to your own wedding, but bridal shoe color is often the top concern. This, of course, is closely followed by a bride’s desire for stylish shoes to pair with her dress, but many wedding shoes for women (designer brands included) do not stand up too well to a full day on your feet and the dance floor. So, finding a pair of comfortable wedding shoes may also be at the top of your list of priorities.


Whether you’re looking for beach wedding shoes, wedding shoes with a low heel or a pair from a top wedding shoe designer such as Christian Louboutin or Kate Spade, we’ve scoured the web for the best statement shoe beauties for your big day courtesy of Nordstrom, Macy’s, Zappos and more. At prices that range from $68 to $845, there’s a stunning wedding shoe for every budget, in every popular color, below.

Best Ivory Wedding Shoes

KLUB NICO Marcela 3 Laser Cutout Sandal


Delicate and ultra-feminine, these extravagant sandals have the stability of a booty combined with the show-stopping look of a statement bridal shoe. According to this Nordstrom wedding shoe's listing, the intricate laser cut curlicue design of the Marcela 3 has made it a bestseller. Reviewers describe the shoes as "beautiful and comfortable," and they come in five more bridal-friendly colors in addition to ivory: champagne, silver, blush, nude and taupe. Super chic and comfortable for all-day wear, what's not to love?

Best Green Wedding Shoes

J.Crew Satin Jeweled Buckle Elsie Mule


This eye-catching J.Crew bridal shoe eschews "something blue" for "something green" instead. Choose these Spicy Jade (yes, that's the name of the color) mules for your Irish roots or to subtly allude to your wedding's eco-friendly, green theme — either way, they're a lucky find. Made of satin with a jeweled buckle, the Elsie Mules feature crystal embellishments and a pointed-toe silhouette, not to mention a cushioned footbed to keep you on your toes all day long (in a good way).

Best White Wedding Shoes

Christian Louboutin Follies Lace Pumps


What do you get when you combine traditional white wedding shoes with a delicate lace overlay and the craftsmanship of Louboutin? These stunning Follies Lace Pumps, of course. These exceptional statement shoes feature a pretty pointed toe and a subtle "Like a Virgin"-era Madonna charm that'll make the reception dance party that much more fun. Plus, we'll never not love the red sole peeking out from under a wedding gown. Swoon. Reviewers say they're "gorgeous," obviously.

Best Nude Wedding Shoes

Blue by Betsey Johnson Elisa Heeled Sandal


If you're a rock 'n roll kind of bride, Blue by Betsey Johnson is the line for you. We adore the Jessa Heeled Sandal, and not only for its showstopper embellishments like those sexy rhinestone-laden straps. And there's just something so striking about a "something blue" sole set against nude satin fabric. We suggest a Tiffany blue pedicure peeping out from the open toe to take these bridal statement shoes to the next level without breaking the bank.

Best Rose Gold Wedding Shoes

Kate Spade New York Giulia Flower Metallic Stiletto Sandals


If you're a beach bride or planning a tropical destination wedding, these Kate Spade wedding shoes featuring a pink 3-D flower are the perfect finishing touch. Girly yet sophisticated rose gold metallic leather and stiletto heels will demand your guests' attention ― especially if you plan to wear a short, tea length or high-low style wedding dress. While these pretty peep toe sandals also come in silver, we're not quite over the rose gold accessories trend yet. Pair these stunners with a bright white or hot pink pedi.
