"I have a shopping hunt request for you. I love, love, love these Loeffler Randall shoes but do not love their price tag. I've scoured the internet looking for a dressy flat/sandal hybrid that is elegant enough to wear at my wedding, but sturdy enough to handle the terrain (lake side in NY). Thank you in advance!! I'm a size 9 to 9.5 and would prefer to keep this under $150."
Why are wedding shoes always so expensive (and don't get me started on wedding dresses, girl) - you're only going to wear them for one day! But, I salute you for wearing flats on your big day. Way more practical and comfortable, since you'll be standing allllll day! I found four pairs, all under budget, that are similar to your LR inspiration shoes. Enjoy, and congrats on your upcoming wedding!
1. The Original: Loeffler Randall Lita Flat Sandals ($295)
2. BC Footwear Gimme Flats ($70)
3. Steve Madden Ivey D'Orsay Flats ($40)
4. Material Girl Ariel Flat Sandals ($45)
5. Steve Madden Ditaa Flats ($50)
