Anyone who’s familiar and appreciative of fashion has likely heard of Badgley Mischka. The American designer house launched in 1988 after the two founders met in college. The bridal department, however, didn’t take center stage until 1993.
Often selling side by side major designers like Manolo Blahnik, Betsy Johnson, and Jimmy Choo; Badgley Mischka offers stunning designs at a reasonable price point when compared to several competitors.
Badgley Mischka is primarily a dress shoe. As such, the most popular styles revolve around high heeled pumps, sandals, platforms, and wedges. The standard 2.5 – 5 inch heels are thick enough to feel secure while walking and come in closed toe, open toe, d’Orsay, and traditional pointed or rounded toe pump designs.
The Swan by Badgley Mischka is everything a feminine bride wants on her wedding day. It is soft with the feather detail, girly with the faint pink color, and romantic with the pearl and beaded decoration!
Many of the designs emulate 1940’s glam and include adornments of lush fabric and sparkling brooch embellishments. 1/2 inch platform leather soles ease novices to designer heels into the heel height challenge. While sumptuous leather, satin and rich silks dress the shoes themselves.
The dress shoe styles are labeled with adorable modern female names and range in design from sophisticated to sassy to sexy. While the shoes add a dazzling touch to any special event, weddings are where they truly shine. Several stunning designs are available for a bride’s special day, but the Goodie-ES is one of the top sellers from year to year. It’s a classic pump fashioned after true Hollywood glamour with a sparkling center gem above the open platform toe. The sturdy heel gives the star of the day 4 1/4 extra inches of height. Many bridal styles come in ivory, but can be dyed to your chosen wedding colors. But are they comfortable?
Badgely Mischka shoes tend to run small, so it’s important to try them on if possible to ensure the proper fit. Most of the time, ordering a full size larger than your normal size will do the trick. In the event of a wedding, you’ll be on your feet more than you’ll be off of them. Comfort is an issue. If heels are a requirement, an open toe design may help in that event. Once the proper fit is decided, these shoes often provide all day comfort. Shoe cushions and sole grips can help ensure the proper comfort levels for your event.
