Clarks Teadale Rhea Review
Making great quality products, including footwear, for almost two centuries, Clarks brings you the Teadale Rhea Oxford wedge. Customers love the way these look, stating that they are stylish and cute. Coming in a couple different color options and materials you are sure to find something that will look great. Not only do they look great but they feel outstanding. Consumers praise their comfort, your feet will not be disappointed at the end of a long day on your feet. There is superior cushioning underfoot thanks to an EVA foam midsole and OrthoLite insole so it is no surprise they are so comfy. Customers have mentioned, however, that they are a bit stiff so keep that in mind when purchasing. Additionally, these wedges do run a little narrow so they may not be the best option if you have particularly wide feet. Overall, customers adore these shoes and sing high praises for them, most even saying they would recommend them to their friends and family.

These shoes are considered a wedge and as such, they are going to give you a little extra height while you are wearing them which many customers appreciate. The shoes have a one-inch platform as a base and then an additional heel for even more elevation. They have an average heel size of about one and a half inches (for a size 7.5 medium).
These shoes have a soft lining in them that is going to help with the breathability level of them as well as give you a more comfortable in-shoe experience. The liner, in combination with the leather or suede uppers, ensures that your feet will be able to stay relatively cool and dry inside of your shoes. They are very well ventilated, allowing air to flow easily into your shoes to help keep your feet cool on warmer days. This is also going to help allow the sweat from your feet evaporate more quickly and escape your shoes, keeping the extra moisture off of your feet, promoting a dry and healthy environment for your feet.
Additionally, the uppers are designed to help keep your feet happy and comfy all day long. There is a soft textile liner inside the shoes to give you some added comfort. As long as you get the proper size and fit of these shoes then you should not have to worry about uncomfortable rubbing which can cause blisters. There were a few complaints about them causing sores of customers feet, but that was mostly due to the shoe running a bit narrow so they did not fit too well on their feet which led to the rubbing.
Customers are saying that these are running pretty true to size, however, they are slightly more narrow than you might expect. If you have particularly wide feet then these might not fit you very well and will probably not be the best choice of shoe for you. If you are unsure of what size to order then you can always take a peek at a size chart just to make sure that you get the correct fit the first time you order them.
As for arch support, they have an OrthoLite insole that gives you some light support which is much appreciated by many customers. Since the insole is not removable it is nice to know that you get some arch support right out of the box.
