I saw these gorgeous shoes in a store a few days ago, and I really want to find similiar shoes but without a heel. Their for my wedding, and I absolutely cannot wear heels. They make my feet sore, and I don't want to be sore all day.

Anyone got ideas or a tut on how to try and do this effect on a pair of flats, or have other ideas for wedding shoes?

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231885.10

Here's my original wedding thread. There are pics of the dress here, but I figured the shoe-oriented types around here might not stray into that forum as often.

Besides, it's still really a general shoe question. I also like the idea of lace shoes, but I can't find photos of the ones I'm thinking of. Any ideas? ^^

These are the lace shoes, essentially.

I don't have any ideas on altering shoes sorry, but the first pair definitely comes in a flat- my mate brought some off ebay Australia about a year ago.

You could probably customize a pair of ballet shoes or basic flats with fabric and lace just use the shape of the shoe as the form. Or you could embellish the flat or ballet shoes.Good Luck
