    Might as well go back to foot binding so you can show how desirable you are for marriage by not being able to walk up stairs or out of the house.
    That's cute. Ever thought that we wear high heels because we want to? You know? Since we can actually use our own money and not ask our husbands and stuff? They can actually be worn outside of the kitchen.

    I deal with heels by NOT wearing them.

    I have worn these to several semi-formal occasions with tailored dress slacks etc.

    Other women liked them and were jealous of my comfort.
    Some of them actually ended up taking off their nice heels at some point.

    It's too bad the Vibram quit making this style... I live them so much I have an extra pair in the closet in more than one color.
    I have black, pink, orange, and purple of the leather Performa style.
    One orange pair I have been wearing for nearly three years, and thought it is starting to get a bit rough at the toes they are still in pretty good shape. For dressing nice the second orange pair will have to come out of the closet soon though. And then they will be gone. No more leather VFF's after I wear out those pairs.

    Cheap+ comfortable+ attractive shoes don't really exist.

    I'd stick with flats, because heels tend to sink in mud, and even little kitten heels do. Unless... you could do a wedge.

    Low-heel, low-cut faux riding boots. Smart, durable, gives you a bit of a "posh punk" look, though.

    Could you get 2 pair... something that's nice and reusable for work for the ceremony, and something that's comfy and cleanable/throwaway for the reception? No one will really care what's on your feet after the ceremony/pictures.

    Thank you. The heels I wore were ones that I chose myself and paid for with my very own money. My boyfriend even asked, "Are you sure you want to wear those?" and, of course, I did. Until 7 hours later.

    i'm not getting why she wants you to wear "dressy" shoes outside in potentially mucky weather. Is she planning to ruin her shoes too?

    i'll echo the advice for flats or wedges at most, and if they're definitely going to be ruined, look at payless.

    cowboy boots are good for all-day comfort but i wouldn't wear any of mine in muck, they're too fancy.

    ebay is a good place to get nice barely used shoes cheap but if you have issues with buying w/o trying on, then that won't work.

    I think these are a great option. As long as you wipe any mud off a few times over the course of the day, say, with some extra paper towel of TP whenever you go to the bathroom, they won't get ruined. The leather will be fine.

    LOL, that reminds of that business maxim: fast, good, cheap - pick two.
