Tips for choosing the perfect elevator shoe

Establish the elevation you want
When you develop an interest in height raising shoes, the core factor is height adjustment. If you only want a small adjustment, go for elevator shoe models that can adjust your tallness with about 1.5-2.5 inches. If you are shorter, picking height increasing shoes with a longer heel will do the trick. However, make sure to strike a balance between personal choice and style.
Match up with the wedding suit and gown

If you are wearing suit, the perfect shoe material would be patent or polished leather.

Also, keep in mind that when you go for the men’s classic suit colors (such as gray or navy blue), if you want to stay traditional you should select a brown or a black shoe to suit.

However, if you have chosen a gray suit on your wedding day, it is very easy to work with when it comes to shoe colors.

As gray is a neutral color, they can be paired with almost any shoe you like.
Choose a style that your most comfortable with

Most popular wedding shoe styles are often the Oxford or Derby.

Although, the Derby looks a lot like Oxford shoes but they can be identified by their open lacing, which allows for a fit that is not as tight as the Oxford.

Go with the Derby if you have wider feet as the open lacing helps accommodate this.
