In between writing assignments, I tend to clear my head by mindlessly scrolling through Twitter and Facebook, as I’m sure many of us you do too. Yesterday, this little detour ended up being topical, and it leads to the topic of our latest edition of TalkShoes Asks.
I’m getting to the age where my social media timelines are covered with engagement notifications, followed by endless wedding pictures and eventual baby announcements. Today, it was a wedding picture from a high school friend that made me stop scrolling; she and her husband were posed as if they were caught in the middle of a dance move, exposing the bride’s wedding sneakers.
Trust me, I know the pain of wearing towering heels all day. It can be excruciating and leave you throbbing for days. Footwear on a bride’s wedding day has become eclectic in recent years; bride’s can now wear anything vibrant “something blue” heels to demure, comfortable kitten heels and still be considered traditional. In the picture, my friend wore an all-lace dress with red and white floral sneakers with red laces, and I’m almost positive she was wearing Keds Champions.
Personally, the thought of sneakers on my wedding day would never occur to me, but if it’s done right, it can make for an edgy, playful touch. Would you consider a sneaker for your wedding day?
Buy a pair of Keds sneakers for your wedding day or just for the fun of it through Zappos for $50.
