Victorian Bridesmaid Shoes
If you or someone you know is a Victorian bride, then this list of bridesmaid footwear is perfect for all your shopping and wedding needs!
Below is a list of the best Victorian bridesmaid shoes available on the web. I have divided them into two sections: those that can be dyed and those that must be worn as they appear. This selection is sure to have something that will spark a little Victorian essence!
Victorian Bridesmaid Shoes That Can Be Dyed:
Victorian White Lace Bridal Boot
This boot was created for brides, but it could easily be suited to a bridesmaid. It has everything that a Victorian shoe should have: a snappy heel, thin shoe strings, and a little lace. It comes in white, but could easily be dyed to match any dress color. It has a 2 7/8'' heel, a leather sole and comes in standard sizes 5-11. It has some lovely detailing that really give it a Victorian edge, such as a ribbon that ties in the front and delicate crystal beading. This boot is a nice match all around, no matter what your taste.
Woman's Canvas Turn-of-the-Century Shoe
This shoe is a little more American Victorian and may not fit every type of Victorian wedding. It is suitable more towards the practicality of the Victorian age, rather than that of the lace and frills that made it so delicate. This shoe is definitely better for comfort, as well as more durable. It is made of canvas material, so it will always conform well to the foot. The shoe comes in both beige and white, but if you were to order the white, you could easily have the shoe dyed to whatever color you desired. It comes in sizes 5-10, so be wary of this one if your feet are on the larger side. It has a lovely ribbon that ties in the front, which could also be dyed a special color that fits the wedding style. Lastly, the heel is short, perhaps 2'', allowing for even more comfort.
Maiden's Memoirs Victorian Shoes
These are actual vintage shoes from the Victorian age, making them better suited for the most authentic of Victorian style weddings. The shoe is a off-white color, making it easy to dye. With a short 1'' heel, this shoe is good comfort, although the arch support is lacking (a small price to pay for the vintage detailing). Made of silk satin, this shoe adds the perfect vintage touch to a bridesmaid dress.
Wedding Wishes Victorian Shoe
No Victorian woman's wardrobe was complete without her high boots. These boots reach midway up the calf with a tiny string lacing them. They come in white and can be easily dyed to match the bridesmaid dress. The boot has beautiful satin covered buttons to give it a nice finishing touch. These shoes can only be purchased within the United Kingdom, so watch out for the exchange rate, as well as different shoe sizings. The sizes available are UK 3-8 with a heel height of 7cm.
Victorian Bridesmaid Shoes That Can NOT Be Dyed:
