When Toms shoes first came to my attention I thought they seemed to be a style reserved for earth-loving hipsters, but once I slipped on my first pair I was hooked. Toms are not only comfortable (if arch support is not on the top of your footwear priority list), but for every pair of Toms bought, a pair of shoes is donated to a child somewhere around the world.

To make outfit coordination a breeze, Toms come in just about every color and pattern you can imagine. At first Toms offerings were restricted to a standard slipper style shoe, but they’ve now expanded to wedges, boots, and more!
When I dress up to go out one of two things happens regarding my shoe choice. ONE: I prance around in my cute high heels while getting ready, but by the time I’m heading out the door I’ve already made the executive decision to ditch the heels for flats. Or, TWO: I leave the house in heels because I am DETERMINED to show the puppies off for a night, but end up barefoot or walking like a crippled giraffe by midnight. Moral of the story – I don’t do well in heels.
Now, because heels aren’t my thing in “regular life” I’m not so sure if I see myself wearing this genre of shoe on my wedding day. Many brides who cherish the notion of comfortable feet on their wedding day are forgoing heels for cute flats like Toms. The perfect wedding day shoe! While some may cringe at the thought of a sneaker-like-shoe hiding under an elegant dress this trend is actually super cute and tasteful.
Here is the picture evidence.
TIP: It’s important for your “wedding Toms” to be straight-out-the-box so they look crisp and not like you’ve lived a whole summer in them.
Oh, and one last thing: a video we found that should tickle your fancy.
