There's no better "something blue" than the perfect pair of navy, cobalt, or pastel blue wedding shoes! Not only do they give your wedding dress a playful pop of color, you'll get milage out of the heels post-wedding, too. Plus, you'll be crossing two items off your to-do list: finding a fashionable pair of wedding pumps and your "something blue!"

What Does "Something Blue" Represent?

The tradition of brides wearing "something blue" on their wedding day comes from the Olde English rhyme: “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe.” "Something blue" traditionally represents purity, love, and fidelity.

One of the best parts about choosing a shoe as your "something blue?" You have tons of options. More formal brides may opt for a classic navy pump or glittery details, while a minimalist bride will be drawn to simple silhouettes with barely-there straps. For the bride with a bohemian sensibility, there are scores of laidback shoes crafted from light and airy fibers like woven raffia and jute.

Whether you want to stun in stilettos or walk across the beach in espadrilles, we've rounded up the best "something blue" wedding shoes for every style and budget.
