When it comes the time to find the perfect pair of shoes for your Quinceanera you might find yourself a little overwhelmed not knowing where to start.

Choose your Quinceañera shoes is never an easy task as girls love shoes! There are a wide variety of shapes, sizes, styles, and colors and find the right shoes to match your dress is not an easy decision, even when you know the length of the dress probably won´t let anybody see them.

Here’s a list of things that you have to consider before buying your shoes, this will ensure that you are making the right decisions.

Comfortable Shoes.

Remember that you will be using your shoes for many hours. Looking for shoes that are specially designed to provide comfort is the best advice.

There are shoes that bring an extra padding to give you that comfort you’ll need after a long time especially when dancing. Don’t make the mistake of buying cheap shoes and end with feet filled with blisters.

Cost and Budget.

We understand that you have a budget for everything you need for your party and we don’t want you to spend more than you have in mind. It is reasonable to spend on shoes 10% of the cost of the dress.

If you are still not within your budget take some time to search through sales and clearance. You never know what treasures can be found!

Consider the Material.

Silk and satin are very popular fabrics for lining Quinceañera shoes. However, your shoes don’t have to be silk-lined if you don’t want to. Today Quinceañeras go beyond the traditional and choose platform shoes with rhinestones or decorations.

Choose a material that matches your dress.

Consider Color.

Shoes should not only match your dress,  also should be a reflection of your personality. If you are cheerful and extroverted you are surely going to pick some very original shoes in a trendy color or a very bright one.

On the other hand, if you’re more reserved, then you will opt for shoes that match your dress color, something more traditional.


Our suggestion is to use the shoes that make you feel comfortable and able to walk in. Many girls are not used to wearing high heels and this is not the best day to experience it for the first time.

One option is to wear flat shoes and then replace them with the high heels for the slipper ceremony. If you get tired, you can always change them again.

Consider the Season.

Another important thing to consider is the season and where will the party be held. If your party is taking place during hot weather and outdoors as the beach or a garden, it is best to take a nice pair of sandals either high heeled or flat.

But if your party is taking place during cold weather it is best to use covered shoes or a nice pair of ankle boots.

¿To Keep or to Use Them?

Well, here the choice is entirely yours if you want to keep the shoes of your Quinceanera as a keepsake of that special day or if you decide to reuse them. If this is the case then keep in mind that when you buy and choose the pair of shoes.

They should match your wardrobe too. The best would be to use them again, so the expense will be worth it.
