The Best Prom Shoes for 2022

Choosing the right Prom Shoes is certainly not a chore, with so many dressy shoe trends on the market for Spring Summer 2022 it’s a fun! There are tons of different styles suitable for prom, including: block heels, stiletto heels, flat pumps, flat sandals. The first thing to decide is which shoe style will suit your prom dress best, if you’re wearing a long dress with a train you could choose a flat style like diamante sandals. The next important thing is colour matching, will you go for the same colour as your dress, a different colour like silver, or maybe even a colour clash? Another very important thing to note is comfort, if your feet can tolerate high heels go for stilettos but if not block heels, wedges, or flats may be a safer choice.
