Heels Over Head

An image

We all know the right pair of shoes can change your life (and help you conquer the world). On Graduation Day, you've never been quite as equipped to take on the world as you are at this exact moment. For this reason, it's important you've got on the right shoes. Sure, you've picked out the perfect dress, but what you really ought to focus on is the only thing about your outfit that will accurately represent who you are (unless you've decorated the top of your cap!) and what kind of mission you're on. Here are our picks for the best Grad-shoes:

Oh, and the most important advice you can get: If you trip and fall off the stage, OWN IT.

Go Classic

Nothing wrong with going a bit classic on your big day, but why not opt for a trendy summer white (there's no getting away from white shoes right now!) If you're going to do a heel, make sure it's chunky so it doesn't get caught in the grass (rookie mistake). We LOVE these Frye sandals.

Flats Off to You

There's no shame in wearing flats, especially on a day when you know you'll be on your feet. Just don't get caught wearing stubby ballet flats-- they do nothing for you! We're loving embellished flats atm, like these cuties from Nine West. Graduation day is EXHAUSTING as it is and you really don't need to have to pile on with hurty feet, too.

Funky & Chunky, Bold & Beautiful

We love the chunky heel & mules are all the rage this season! Grab a bright colored pair (we're super into PINK, but also red & yellow rn) and we're loving these pink lace up beauties from Public Desire.

Let's Hear It For The Boys

Graduation is no black tie event (some people opt to wear nothing at all under those robes) but your shoes still make a statement and should be comfortable. Cole Haan makes some really great, well-made shoes. Good thing you get a student discount...
