Men can wear suede, loafers or derby shoes or go casual with sneakers. Ladies can opt for peep toes, platform shoes, kitten heels or any other shoe of your choices.

  • Weddings

As the bride, you have to opt for chic and elegant shoes. The location of your wedding determines your shoe choices. For beach weddings, sandals or slides can suffice. Flatforms are great to for beach weddings  too.

For black tie affairs, you ditch the flats for heels. The height of course is up to you. The groom can opt for oxford or brogues in black patent leather or black leather.
