You know, I feel like for the longest time, there were two schools of thought when it came to wedding shoes: heels for fashion, sneaks for comfort. And if you picked one, you kind of had to stick with it. But these days, that’s not a thing. You can have one, you can have the other, and you can have both. Case in point, Kate Spade and Keds came together last year to launch one of the first full-concept wedding shoe collections on the market, and the collab is literally killing it. I’ll always be team Kate Spade for sooo many reasons, but for the purpose of this post, I wore rose gold KS pumps on my wedding day and they still give me flutters when I look at them.
Had my wedding just been 3-4ish years later, I would have undoubtedly traded in my pumps for the Keds x Kate Spade New York Triple Decker Glitter slide-on, but you live and you learn. I’m pretty sure I’ll just buy these and wear them with jeans and a cream/blush blouse just to live vicariously.
According to the two brands behind this juggernaut nuptials franchise, this is what we know about the shoes: there’s seven new aisle-style debuts, they’re available online RN (that’s the biggie), and there really is something for every bride and every shoe person to love, respectively.

👟 The collection is perfect for everything from bridal showers to bridesmaids' gifts to walking down the aisle to happily ever after. The new styles include everything from black+white-tie bow-fitted platforms to pearl-embellished, satin slip-ons, which couldn’t be more bridal if they tried!
👟Equal parts style and function (BINGO), these styles are a must for brides-to-be. There's no better way to walk down the aisle than in these elegant sneakers that allow height without the heel and dance-all-night comfort, plus versatile style so you can keep wearing them well after the big day!
👟 Oh! And from their influencer campaign, it’s also suuuuper clear that these shoes aren’t just dos for the big day, nopeeee, they can and should be worn to the bridal shower - with a fabulous shift dress, to the bachelorette (any occasion where rosé and glitter are in bulk supply bodes well for equally-sparkly shoes #festiveAF), to the airport when you’re boarding the plane to your blissful honeymoon.
