Quinceañeras are packed with traditions and symbolic gestures throughout the day. The changing of shoe ceremony is a tradition practiced in most quinceañeras. In this tradition, a quinceañera will start by wearing flats to mass and the reception. Before the traditional waltz, the quinceañera will trade her flats in for high heels (Or the shoe of your choice). Dress and shoe shopping can be stressful but it is essential in order to have your personality shine through.
Lucky for you, this is your big day and you decide what to wear on your feet. You can even choose to stay in the same flats throughout the day. You can also go from your flats to your cowboy boots. It is important to know your likes and dislikes in order to put your best foot forward.
