Here are some tips that you may find useful:
– The final fitting for your wedding trousers should be made with the shoes you intend to wear, particularly if having a false heel added to give you extra height.
– Ensure you wear your shoes in, so that you do not end up with blisters on your wedding night.
– Ensure the soles are scuffed so you do not end up flat on your backside in the middle of the dance floor!
– Ensure you try your shoes on with a sample of the sock you are going to wear.
– Try to purchase a shoe made from natural products – your feet are less likely to smell!
– Your shoes should compliment what you are wearing and reflect your personal style.
Finally, if you already have a tried and trusted pair of shoes, make sure you polish them!
