It’s not the style itself that makes it a prom shoe; it’s the details, embellishments and the material of the shoe itself. If you are not a fan of spiky heels, don’t fret. Prom shoes have come a long way. You can opt for kitten heels, ankle straps, ballet shoes, and even flats.

Here are a few ways to distinguish a prom style shoe from your standard dress shoe:


Most dress shoes are designed of leather. However, shoes for prom are designed of more luxurious fabrics such as silk, satin, suede, and velvet. Think of it this way, you wouldn’t wish to wear your Sunday shoes to prom, right?


Shoes are adorned with rhinestones, pearls, crystals, bows & sequins, which are typical designing elements for special occasions such as proms, weddings, and other formal events. This, of course, is different from popular teenage embellishments for shoes such as studs and zippers.

One of the best ways to check out prom shoes is to look online. See what all the teen celebs wear. And don’t panic, you don’t have to spend hundreds on designer shoes. You can easily find similar shoes at a reasonable price and still be the belle of the ball!
