Due to excitement and nerves perhaps – or even if you just run out of time – most grooms can tend to forget to think about the shoes they’ll be wearing on their big day. There’s a lot of standing and walking around, so it’s crucial that you make a wise decision when it comes to shoes. It is nice to be looking fashionable but footwear need to be comfortable at the same time (at least there’ no nine-inch stilletto heels to deal with!) so your feet feel like they’re lounging on cushions! Here are our handpicked suggestions that embody the style and comfort necessary for wedding day celebrations.
These Oxford babies, named ‘Style Oxford’, from Hush Puppies are sleek and formal. Crafted from durable leather, the Oxfords contain a flexible and soft sock lining that adjusts to the way you walk, catering to a breathable and protective base for the feet.

The ‘Force’ leather slip-ons by airflex not only accentuate any tailored suit with their dressy factor, but they also encompass a double gusset for increased breathability and an insock for extra support.

The ‘Penton Limit Wingtip’ brogue from Clarks
– in black, chestnut, dark blue or tan – deliver in looks with its traditional detailing as well as in function with its rubber liner which decreases friction.
If you really want to spurge on your shoes, as part of John Lobb’s ‘Prestige’ line from Mr Porter, these Oxford shoes are hand-crafted to the highest specifications. The fine black leather and clean, sweeping lines create an unfailingly elegant appearance. Supplied with shoe trees to maintain their exacting shape, this pair will last a lifetime with proper care!

If a beach wedding is set for your big day, there are a number of loafers, boat shoes and light-coloured slip on shoes that match back perfectly with either linen suits or casual cargos. The ‘Callum’ in blue nubuck and the ‘Parson’ loafer in taupe both from Aquila are great first choice options.

For maximum style and comfort, why not match your new pair of shoes back with some show-stopping socks! We think the Bresciani‘s ‘Knee-Length Argyle-Patterned Wool-Blend’ or Paul Smith‘s ‘Striped Stretch Cotton-Blend’ socks are perfect for that finishing touch!
Ms Chinoiserie Says: With so many shoes to choose – from Oxfords to brogues and loafers – there is a style to suit every wedding day dress code!
