What to Look for When Buying Wedding Shoes

Style

While there aren’t a ton of different dress shoe designs out there, there are plenty of style options to choose from. You want to find a dress shoe that feels like you—not just you in a pair of dress shoes.

Some of the most classic styles include oxfords, like the Cole Haan Hawthorne Plain Oxford, and derby shoes, like the Blake McKay Lace-Up Damon Shoe. You’ll also find wingtips, boots, driving shoes, boat shoes, and everything in between.

Our shoes should feel like an extension of us, and if traditional cap toes and wingtips aren’t for you, Cuini says that’s okay. “Loafers can be considered dress shoes if they are made with high-quality leather and properly polished.”

Material

Leather is the most popular option for men’s dress shoes. The go-to material is not only comfortable, durable, and long-lasting but also decidedly dapper. Of course, there are many variations. You could go with classic leather, soft nubuck, suede, vegan leather, or patent leather, like the Charles Tyrwhitt Patent Oxford Shoes.

Fit

Fit is a necessary thing to consider when purchasing shoes, especially dress shoes. After all, you’re going to wear (read: dance in) them all night—and possibly all season too. With a higher-priced purchase like dress shoes, it’s best to measure your feet and compare your measurements against the brand’s size guide.

Keep in mind size guides can differ among brands—just because you’re a size 11 in Cole Haan shoes doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be the same size in Nordstrom dress shoes. Also, take into account that some brands don’t carry half sizes and that they may produce in EU, IT, or UK sizing, rather than US.

Unlike sneakers, Cuini says, “dress shoes will feel much snugger” and that it is important that they “fit without any slipping or sliding inside.” She explains that wearing properly fitted dress shoes will ensure they’re comfortable throughout the entire event.
