Fact: not all women like wearing heels. If you find yourself in this camp, it’s likely because you find them uncomfortable and are not of the mind to sacrifice comfort for style or you run around far too often for heels to feel practical. You may live in a city like New York where walking countless blocks and going in and out of subway station is not a feasible task in heels even if you enjoy wearing them at work or while out and about. Instead, an easy-to-wear footwear style during a commute is essential—plus, the city streets are hard on your heels and can easily destroy even the most well-made designs. That’s where sneakers come in. A universally loved flat shoe that has reached peak chic as far as shoe trends go—never have sneakers been such a mainstay in fashion with countless designers offering them as a core essential in their collections each season. So, if you’re a bride-to-be in need of a unique and comfortable shoe for your wedding day, why not go for a comfortable-cool sneaker?

A range of unique sneakers are on offer this season that are perfect for brides. Clean white versions in sleek leather and lightweight canvas are classic and versatile with everything in your wardrobe but work well under a gown if simple is your taste. For a summer spin, espadrille soles, perforated fabrics, and eyelet lace are idyllic in warm weather—they’re also great for beach brides or those seeking a more feminine option. For the boldest bride, consider a fresh floral print for a pop of color—so fun and totally unexpected! Embellished sneakers are great if you want a fancier style—choose from rhinestones, knotted bows, or dramatic lace-up ties for a fanciful look. The snazziest of sneakers will come doused in glitter or bedecked with pearls or floral appliqués and feel quintessentially bridal. Or, go for a super modern look see-through PVC—very cool.

Whether you’re planning to wear sneakers with your wedding dress or with a range of outfits leading up to your big day, ahead, we assembled an edit of 26 styles perfect for summer brides. Later, stilettos.
