I have a confession to make: up until this summer, I’ve never really been a “shoe girl.” Seriously, I had like ONE pair of shoes plus a couple cheap pairs of flip flops. My sandals were two years old and killing my feet. Then somehow, I became a shoe girl overnight. It happened when I reviewed a super adorable pair of sneakers earlier this summer. Then a cool pair of rubber ballet flats. Then ABEO asked if I could use some sandals for review and I was all “OMG, you have no idea!” Seriously, those old sandals were KILLING my feet. Now, I’m all “bring on the shoes!”
Get ABEO Sandals & Stop Sacrificing Comfort for Style
Up until my ABEO sandals arrived on my doorstep, my sandal situation was pretty dire. Like I said, I had the other pair for like two years. They were cheap and not very supportive to begin with, so they weren’t really meant to be worn for more than one season. I have back problems that extend down into my legs, plus I’ve never really been good on my feet. I’ve always gotten achy after an hour or two of walking around. I need something supportive and comfortable, but I wanted something CUTE.
ABEO sent me two pairs of amazing sandals: one for everyday use and one for fancier outfits. I madly “heart” both of them. The first pair is my “practical yet stylish” everyday pair: the ABEO B.I.O.system® Eternity sandal. I went with the “sand” color because it goes with pretty much everything.
These sandals are incredibly comfortable right out of the box. They’re water-friendly, so you can wear them to the beach or the pool. While I don’t recommend jumping in the ocean while wearing them, they can handle splashes, rain and a little light water without getting all icky. They also dry pretty fast, so you don’t make that weird squishy squeaky noise when you walk.
These sandals feature an Aegis® antimicrobial shield, which keeps them from getting stinky or grungy. The straps are adjustable, so you can actually buy your size without worrying that they won’t fit. Inside the shoe is a custom orthotics interior. You can’t see it, but it’s there to keep you comfy as you stroll around all summer long.
I also have my super duper adorable Camille sandals. They’re also quite comfy, with their built-in orthotics and lightweight cork midsoles. The cork really makes a huge difference because it provides cushioning without making your feet all hot. The combination of the rubber bottom and the cork helps absorb shock as you walk, so your feet don’t end up crying for mercy.
These sandals are comfy enough to wear all day yet dressy enough to wear with a “going out” outfit. While I do prefer the other pair for long days on my feet, I love these for night time. They’re also perfect for transitioning into fall, as I can wear them with black tights and skirts once the weather turns chilly.
Both pairs are available either online at ABEO Footwear or in stores at The Walking Company. They have dozens of beautiful yet comfortable sandals, from active-wear to classier evening sandals. Check them out and find your favorite comfortable yet cute pair!
