23 Best Graduation Shoes and Heels 2023
If the thought of walking across the stage in front of hundreds of people to receive your diploma makes you a little nervous, we’re totally with you. One way to help prevent any mishaps will be through your footwear choice. We’ve found the cutest graduation shoes you can pair with all types of graduation suits and dresses that have enough traction and stability that you won’t be left skidding or stuck in the grass.
If sky-high heels are your thing, more power to you. Though, we recommend avoiding stilettos if your event is outdoors, and instead opting for something with a platform or a wedge. But there are also plenty of other formal styles that are not heels you can choose from, like ballet flats, loafers, and sneakers (though check with your school’s dress code before busting out the Converse). Ultimately, you’ll want something that maximizes both fashion and function to get you through the long ceremony.
We searched through countless reviews (and even worn a few ourselves) to find stylish and comfy picks fit for the special day. We’ve got designer shoes from retailers like Nordstrom and Bloomingdales and affordable selects from cult-favorite brands like Steve Madden, Charles & Keith, and more! (Pro tip: You can totally repurpose your prom sneakers for graduation).
No matter your preference, there’s sure to be a graduation shoe on our list that will keep you standing tall as you pick up your (hard-earned!) diploma on commencement day.
