6 sustainable wedding shoes for a day of love

As you may or may not know, I am getting married this summer of 2024 and I am super excited for it! I will sew my own dress and accessories, but I cannot make my own shoes. So therefore, I’ve analysed my favourite slow and sustainable shoe brands and what they have to offer in terms of wedding shoes. And of course, I don’t want to keep all the information to myself. So here are my 6 favourite sustainable wedding shoes for an unforgettable day full of love and empty of blisters and ethical concessions. 😉

Nomasei

Nomasei is a brand born from a profound commitment to meaningful change. The founders of Nomasei departed from their secure careers in major luxury houses and embraced the risk to offer a responsible and sustainable alternative. Transparent in their values, objectives, and commitments, Nomasei is guided by four pillars: responsible luxury product, transparency, reinventing the company, and prioritising people.

These unique and sustainable sandals are ideal for ceremonies and special occasions, such as your wedding day. They feature a stable 6 cm heel, that is easy to walk, dance and jump all day in. They are made from embossed calf leather sourced from France, Italy, and Holland, and tanned in Italy and handcrafted in Montopoli, Italy. Each pair embodies the finest Italian craftsmanship and style.

Idee Fixe is a slow fashion shoe brand that embraces a minimalist aesthetic rooted in simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty.
