fancy footwear: introducing pink paradox

Pink Paradox (10)

If there’s one type of shopping us Brides Up North girls love, it’s shoe shopping! That’s why we’re super excited to be introducing our new blog sponsor Pink Paradox, to you lovely brides-to-be today.

Though it’s tempting to take a magpie approach to buying your bridal footwear; snapping up the first pair of sparkling skyscrapers you find could leave you hobbling around midway through your big day if they’re not built for all-day wear.

Thankfully the experts at Pink Paradox provide fancy footwear that scores equally high in the comfort and style stakes – plus there’s an option for all tastes. From sophisticated sling backs and pretty peep-toe platforms, to elegant kitten heels and fashionable flats – ladies, you will literally be spoilt for choice!

And if that weren’t enough, Pink Paradox also offer a fabulous range of dyeable shoes, meaning you can have your footwear matched to your exact colour specifications (perhaps to provide that something blue?). Here to fill you in on all the details are the creators themselves…

Can you give us an overview of Pink Paradox and what it offers to brides?

Pink Paradox say: We started out in 2002 after identifying a gap in the market for bridal shoes that are stylish yet comfortable so Pink Paradox was born. What we offer brides is affordable and comfortable heels whilst not sacrificing any of the style!

How important do you feel shoes are to a bride’s wedding day attire?

We could be slightly bias here but incredibly important! Not necessarily from just a style point of view, but this is one of the biggest days of your life you’re going to be on your feet for most of the day, from walking down the aisle to your first dance, and then finding and talking to all your guests. You’ve got to make sure you have shoes you can actually walk in; and luckily that’s what we specialise in!

What advice would you give to brides when picking their wedding shoes?

Have a selection ready and try them all on; which ones are comfortable, which can you walk in? Our best tip is to make sure brides go for something they would usually wear, do not be tempted to go for extremes as you don’t want to end up regretting it on the day!

Can you give us an overview of the different styles of wedding shoes that Pink Paradox offer?

We have quite a range on offer so we can cater to most wedding parties! We have high heels for the daring bride, mid-heels for the confident bride, flats, laced, sparkling, pleated – we can go on! With a range available we can provide heels for the bride for during the day, for the reception, for the mother of the bride and even for the bridesmaids!
