Your graduation shoes play a crucial role in avoiding that ever embarrassing moment of tripping on stage. To help you in your search for the perfect grad shoe I picked out a few of my faves.
As you try to decide what shoes you wear to graduation I recommend looking for something practical but stylish. Stick to shoes you can walk in comfortably.
Many people don’t account for how much time you’ll spend standing around at your ceremony. Before the ceremony starts you’ll probably be standing around waiting to walk in.
Then after the ceremony there’s visiting with friends and a plethora of pictures, which means more standing.
Here’s a few tips to guide you as you pick out your shoes.
- Avoid stilettos, especially if you’ll be walking around on grass.
- Consider wearing shoes with ankle straps for added support.
- Wedges are an excellent choice since they’re easier to walk in.
- Don’t be afraid to wear flats, you won’t be the only one.
Wedges for Graduation
Like I said above, I think wedges are the all around best graduation shoe. Here’s a few of my favorites.

If you feel confident rocking heels at your graduation go for it. There are so many cute pumps it’s hard to just pick a few but any of these would make for great graduation shoes.
And don’t worry about matching your shoes to your graduation gown/hat. I think using your shoes to add a pop of color to that outfit is perfect.

Best Flats for Graduation
Flats are definitely the most comfortable graduation shoe. I’m kind of a fan of pointed toe flats as you can see but if you’re looking for ballet flats Amazon has lots of cute options (These one’s are all available with Prime shipping and are 4 stars or higher).

I love wearing heeled sandals. Their comfortable on hot days and they look great with dresses. You know you’ll look good when you pair any of these sandals with our favorite graduation dresses.
