Following on from my recent review of the Simply Be Viva La Diva T-Bar Sandals EEE Fit, I also received a pair of wedge sandals from the wonderful people at Simply Be that I wanted to review.
When browsing the Simply Be website these And Abigail Strappy Wedges E Fit jumped out from the screen at me and I knew I had to give them a try for myself.

I loved the combination of colours – the black, gold and beige straps worked so well together and would be brilliant to match with all sorts of outfits.
I went for a size 5E (these sandals are only available in the one width).
These sandals are fab! They are SO comfortable and being wedges I feel very secure and stable in them. I often get bouts of vertigo and almost always have a ‘swimmy’ feeling so it’s important that the footwear I choose does not add to this problem.
I love the cork effect on the heels of these wedges. It means that the sandals can be easily dressed up or down – I think if they’d had solid black wedges they might have looked too formal but the cork adds a bit of extra fun to them.
I found the size 5 to be slightly too long for me but I think a 4 would have been too small. I often have this problem and I reckon in this instance a 4.5 would be perfect…but of course not many footwear companies make half sizes. It’s easier to overcome this issue with shoes and boots as it’s simple enough to add an insole but with sandals it’s much trickier. Personally I think it’s better to have footwear that is slightly too big than too small so I stuck with the 5.
The straps across the foot have discreet elastic strips so that there is some stretch to them. This means that they are ultra comfortable and even though they are only E width they are flexible and kind to my feet.
Having never tried And Abigail before I wasn’t sure what to expect but I am pleased to report that they are a fantastic, quality brand who make footwear that is both stylish and comfortable.
