For many women, the words ‘wedding day’ spark stress and anxiety. If you survive the guest list, dress selection and endless to-do lists, another dilemma awaits: what shoes will look smoking hot while causing the least discomfort? Most brides will forego the comfort factor and jam their feet into sky-high ankle snappers for the day. But Serena Williams isn't most brides.

After exchanging vows with Reddit founder Alex Ohanian, the absolute weapon of a sportswoman kicked off her heels and slid on a pair of Cortez (well, after a few other costume changes). And not just any old Cortez – these rhinestone-encrusted customs were more like blinding disco balls. Pastel shades ensured the shoes complemented Serena’s Versace cocktail dress (her third dress for the day) perfectly. Fingers crossed this kicks off a global 'wedding sneaker' movement.
