Materials

Materials

The Abigail Jane has a smooth leather upper, that's perfect for keeping you cool and comfortable, even if the weather outside is hot or humid. The leather is an amazing material because it wicks excess moisture away from the skin which helps to prevent a build-up of sweat and odor-causing bacteria.

When our feet sweat it makes the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and your shoes can quickly end up smelling pretty ripe which can ruin a pair faster than anything. This pair has a stacked heel with a wooden look that adds more personality to its already hot looking appearance. A long-lasting rubber outsole will keep your shoes on your feet for longer and won't wear out with daily use. The Abigail's soft fabric lining feels great against bare skin and it also helps to minimize sweating inside of your shoe.
Lining

Lining

The Jane Wedge has a supple fabric lining material that feels great against your skin. It helps to control excess moisture and won’t block airflow so your feet will be able to ventilate inside the shoe. When our feet sweat it makes for the perfect breeding ground for odor-causing bacteria and can quickly ruin a pair of shoes. Once your shoes start to smell it’s nearly impossible to return them to their once fresher state.

Having a soft lining material is also easier on the soles of your feet and can actually help to keep your skin soft and smooth. When we walk on hard surfaces for any length of time it promotes calluses because the skin hardens to help protect our feet. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you what a battle it can be trying to get rid of calluses so choosing a shoe with a soft lining material can really save you a world of irritation.
Heel

Heel

Walking in heels can be a tough thing to do, but luckily this pair was designed to make walking a snap! It has a 1 ¼ inch wedge heel that still gives you some nice lift without making it tough for you to stride naturally. High heels actually force our bodies to change the way we walk so you’re unnaturally moving with every step that you take. This can lead to all sorts of issues like fatigue and foot pain because you’re forcing repetitious movements all day long.

Wedge heels are the best for walking because they’re wider than stiletto’s which are hard to step down on to. Whereas, the thicker platform of a wedge is much more natural and won’t restrict the way you move.
Outsole

Outsole

A rubber sole is a great feature in a shoe because rubber prevents accidental slips or falls. The Abigail Jane has a rubber outsole that will keep you steady on your feet despite the weather outside and is great for wet and rainy days. Rubber is a very durable material which means that your shoes will last longer if the sole is made from it so you won’t have to replace them before their time just because the sole has worn out.
Insole

Insole

The insole of a shoe is the material inside of the sole and underneath the footbed. This means that it’s a big factor in how comfortable the shoe is to wear. The Abigail Jane has a cushioned insole that helps to make it all the more enjoyable for walking in. Having a well-cushioned insole will lessen foot fatigue and help to reduce pain in your legs, hips, and joints because it cushions every step. When we walk all of our body weight presses down on our feet which means that they need some extra TLC in order to help prevent sore and tired tootsies.

The arch of the foot is a very delicate area and when there isn’t enough cushioning in your shoe it puts that area in a compromised position. The Abigail is the perfect choice for ladies who spend long hours on their feet whether its at work or just while you’re out and about. This pair will keep you nice and comfy for hours on end and is an ideal pick for teachers, and other professional occupations.
Footbed

Footbed

A soft foam footbed ensures that you'll be walking in total comfort and helps to prevent foot pain and lower limb fatigue. The footbed is the part of the shoe that your foot sits directly on and needs to be made material that feels good against bare skin. The Abigail Jane has a unique OrthoLite footbed that helps to improve the overall health of your feet while cradling them in supportive comfort. Its molded shape better conforms to the curves of your structure to hug every contour for the most enjoyable ride possible. Forget about aches, pains, and discomfort while wearing a pair of these Clarks sandals, they're made to keep you feeling your best no matter how many hours you wear them.
Support

Support

Having proper arch support is a vital aspect of any pair of shoes. The Abigail Jane offers an OrthoLite molded footbed and cushioned insole that helps to absorb the waves of shock from every step. When you step down the impact can play havoc on your feet, legs, hips, and even lower back which is why it's so important that your shoes absorb at least some of the shock from every step.

This pair is designed to promote a healthier environment for your feet and lower limbs while also helping to eliminate the aches and pains, as well as foot fatigue associated with wearing unsupportive footwear. Properly supporting your arch can help to prevent collapse and other painful issues that can arise if you don’t take care of that delicate area of the foot.
Style

Style

This is the perfect sandal for evenings out on the town or just for strolling the fashion strip in style. Try matching the Abigail Jane with a pair of shorts or a mini skirt for a super cute look that's always on-trend. This sandal has a wedge heel that elongates the appearance of your legs for a sexy finish that is flawless no matter what the occasion.
Colorways

Colorways

One of the downsides to this pair is that it comes in only three colorways and they’re nothing out of the ordinary, that’s for sure! You can choose from black, blush, or navy which leaves little to the imagination and comes off is quite a bore. It would have been nice to have seen some unique colors or interesting patterns instead which would have set off the entire design. But, at the very least, these shades are neutral options that look good with practically any other color so you won't have trouble matching the Abigail with practically anything in your closet.
Fit

Fit

Despite its overall comforting feel, some women found the Abigail to be a little wide fitting. Now, this is great if you have wider feet, but for ladies with narrow toes, it can be a little uncomfortable. If this is the case, try ordering a half size smaller than you normally would. This will make up for the added width and will help them to fit much better. It's always nice when a pair comes in half sizes as well as full because it lets you find the perfect fit without having to opt for something that doesn't feel perfect when you're wearing it.

Bottom Line

Overall, the Abigail Jane wedge sandal is an excellent choice of footwear for stylish ladies. It offers a smooth and professionally-chic appearance, coupled with tons of comfort-enhancing features that make this a must-have pair. These are appropriate for almost any occasion you can think of like the office, afterparty, and even your next trip to the mall. Their adaptable design looks great with any kind of clothing and your feet will feel incredibly rejuvenated thanks to Jane’s cushioned insole and a contoured footbed that help to prevent foot pain and fatigue.

I rated this shoe quite highly based on several factors including its appearance, wearability, and versatile design. This wedge is easy to walk in and won’t cause you a world of hurt just from a few hours spent on your feet. It’s a great choice for professional ladies and is a favorite among teachers who spend long hours standing in front of a class.
