wedding shoes

If you’re walking down the aisle this year or know someone who is, then stop everything immediately because you need to hear this news. John Lewis have launched a customisable wedding shoes collection. They look like designer dupes, but prices start from £85!

The wedding shoes collection is a collaboration with Rainbow Club and launched on February 15th 2020. There are 77 styles in the collection and over 60 can be made in a custom colour. They're officially bridal footwear, but we think they'd work for any fancy occasion so don't let something as simple as not wearing a wedding dress or getting married stop you.

Exclusively available at John Lewis, this new collection features modern and sophisticated silhouettes with statement crystal brooches, soft chiffon bows and delicate beading, offering something for the fashion forward, ethereal and minimal bride who is looking for accessories with personality.

The shoes are just lovely, and the eagle-eyed of you will note than many of the styles resemble quite iconic designer ones. Manolo Blahniks and Jimmy Choos instantly spring to mind...

But what makes this collection really unique is the affordable prices. You can have your chosen pair of shoes made in a custom colour from as little as £85!

Who are Rainbow Club and why are John Lewis collaborating with them?

If you've ever been a bridesmaid you’ve probably worn a pair without realising. They are THE go-to bridal footwear brand with over 800 UK stockists in the UK. They really know their stuff.
