    Promising review: "Love these shoes so much! Fit as expected and so comfortable. I was MOH in a wedding and on my feet all night, which I had fretted about for weeks because I just had hip surgery. These shoes saved my life and are so cute for flats!" β€”Helen Dunn

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these shoes! They were a tiny bit bigger than I expected, but it actually worked out perfectly. If I had gone down any smaller, I definitely would have gotten blisters. The ankle strap avoided any slippage and kept the shoe perfect in place for six to eight hours of walking, dancing, partying (used these for a wedding). I even got several compliments in them! They were also extremely comfortable! My feet did not hurt at all at the end of the night. My only complaint is the material makes them hard to clean (I got the nice ones) otherwise, these are fantastic, and I would absolutely get another pair!" β€”Becca

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 15 colors)

    3. A pair of foldable flats that are great on their own, or to keep in your bag and change into once you are *done* with your heels. They also come with their own pouch to carry them in, and they're available in tons of different colors, so you can definitely find one to match your outfit.

    Promising review: "I bought these for my daughter's wedding, planned on using them when my feet got tired of the heels I was wearing. Right before the ceremony, a strap broke on my heels, so I ended up wearing them the entire time, so comfortable!" β€”Kilmartor

    Price: $15.88+ (available in sizes S–XL and 37 colors)

    4. A pair of crochet lace ballet flats for a stunning, unique look that's also comfy. Easy to slip on and off (of course) and created to keep you cool and comfortable on perhaps the longest day ever? Yes, please.

    Promising review: "I wore these shoes for my son's outdoor, formal wedding for which I was wearing a sequined gown. They were pretty enough to wear with the dress without competing with it. They were comfortable enough to wear the entire evening without making my feet hurt. They are simple enough that I can pair them up with jeans or other more casual clothes. I highly recommend, especially at the price!" β€”NaNa

    Price: $8.95+ (available in sizes 6–11 and six colors)

    Promising review: "I bought these shoes for a very casual wedding, and I love them. They were very comfortable, and I was very surprised that I was able to last all throughout the wedding without taking them off. These shoes did not hurt my feet, and I danced all night. I can use these shoes as dressy, and I can use these shoes to go to work. I can even wear these shoes with some nice jeans and a dressy top for a casual dinner." β€”Melissa

    Price: $21.80+ (available in sizes 5–15 and 7–13 wide and 15 colors)

    6. A pair of elastic-edge ballet flats so they'll stay on all day and all night. Wide-footed besties, this style of flat will work amazing for you, trust me (I struggle with this all the time)! You're gonna want to wear these throughout the whole wedding β€” and then every single day after.

    Promising review: "I usually cannot wear dress shoes due to chronic pain issues, and I've never worn ballet flats. I needed to wear some though, when I was a bridesmaid in my sister's wedding. I tried others, but since ballet flats don't come down far on top of the foot, they all cut badly into the bones at the bottom of my toes. These do NOT because they are so soft and flexible. They are so comfortable for dress shoes that I was able to wear them for 12 hours, and that is very unusual. I LOVE how Amazon has both half sizes in the large sizes and wide widths. I needed both a half size and wide width, and the shoes fit perfectly! They also look very nice!" β€”Amy Beth Luthor

    Price: $17.07+ (available in sizes 5–15 and 5–15 wide and 34 colors)

    7. A pair of Clark's embellished-toe flats, because sometimes you just want to feel elegant. And these don't just look nice β€” they have ~actual~ supportive footbeds, so your feet will thank you in the end.

    Promising review: "I bought these to wear at a wedding after pictures, so I wanted to go as cheap and simple as possible. I LOVE these shoes; they do not look or feel cheap at all.

    Promising review: "I know I can't go wrong with Lifestride shoes, and these are no exceptions.Β  They feel sturdy and have a very substantial sole. I had to buy a pair of shoes for a wedding, but I also wanted some shoes that I can also wear to work; these are perfect. I do not like pointed-toe shoes, so the rounded toe is perfect; there is a slight height to them, just perfect. Boxing was great, comes in a regular shoebox, and they came quicker than I even expected. I am going to put a little bit of arch support in them, but if that's the only downside, I'm good with these. I love them; they are beautiful, and I can see myself wearing them quite a bit." β€”Ldympr

    Price: $15.94+ (available in sizes 5–12, 6–11 narrow, 6–12 wide, and 6–12 extra wide and eight colors)

    Promising review: "Classic dressy flat ballet shoe. Lifestride shoes have been around for a while. Needed a non-HIGH-heel black shoe for a wedding outfit, I am wearing dressy slacks. Tried a few other ballet flats, but these were the nicest. They fit true to size, appear nicely polished, and have a nonslip sole. Also, have extra lining inside for support. Highly recommend." β€”B.

    Promising review: "I was looking for something beautiful that could be worn with a foot brace for a wedding and this shoe was absolutely perfect. It was worn for almost 12 hrs (mostly seated, with a few moments of walking and dancing), and it felt right all through. I had to buy a full and a half size up to accommodate the brace, but it worked well. It was a great buy!" β€”J Ade
