Would You Wear: Wedding Flats By TOMS (…Down The Aisle?)


In doing a little research (/online shopping) for an upcoming shopping guide, I came across something that surprised me: ethically-minded shoe company TOMS makes wedding styles. Seriously:

So. I want to know who’d wear these at her wedding. TOMS is an admirable company that makes affordable shoes while doing good deeds but I guess… for weddings… I’d expect a bride to want something at least slightly more glamorous. Flats, sure. But canvas slip-ons?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    I had the idea of a glamorous wedding (don’t we all?) and I was afraid it would be spoiled by some of my very informal guests. So I went all for the glam look, and ended up looking like a character from Dynasty. Shoes were the worst part…Luckily I had some bronze sandals that looked ok when I changed. My advice for all brides is to be casual and comfortable, and to enjoy their party. If Toms feel good, go for it!

    Is the pair to the right of the dancing couple made of canvas? The material looks shinier… I dunno. I think those are pretty cute.

    Maybe not like for the ceremony and maybe I wouldn’t wear them myself, (Personally, I think TOMS are UGLY!) but I know a lot of folk like them, so maybe I would put them in little gift bags for my bridal party as a thank you and a comfy option to wear when the formalities of the day were over so they could dance the night away in comfort.

    I think having a spare set of shoes for occasions like this is always a good plan.

      And… They are an “ethically-minded” company. So why not?

    No no no. Never. Definitely not for my wedding, are you kidding?! No. Not even to take out the trash or do the dishes. NO.
