Sneak Peek at The Wedge Right In Sandals With Review
As a mark. rep, I have access to the following magalog's (this is what we call our catalog, since it is like a mini magazine as well as a catalog) products at a 35% discount from what the product will go for. This is a great perk! Not only do I get the goods a month early but I get it at a pretty amazing price. This month, I purchased myself the Wedge Right In Sandals. I am completely in love with these sandals! Unfortunately there is still snow on the ground so I have only worn them in my apartment so far. Next week I will be on vacation in Florida so I'm sure I'll be wearing these just about every day.
Here is a picture of them on my feet (I am also wearing one of the new Nailed It Mini Nail Lacquers in this pic):
Now, I have been trying to get back into wearing heels lately. I have not been wearing them since...well, honestly since I was pregnant with my older son Liam who is almost 3 years old now! It started with the pregnancy, then he was a baby and I was afraid I would drop him, and after that I had just gotten used to being in sneakers all the time and I was just plain lazy about my appearance.
So, I have been taking baby steps to get back into heels. No stilettos just yet but I have been wearing boots with a chunky heel this winter and now I have these Wedge Right In sandals for spring. I still consider this a baby step since wedges are usually easy to wear and comfortable but these shoes give a total of 5 inches including the platform! This is amazing for me since I am 5'2". These bring me up to 5'7" so I can actually kiss my 6'2" husband without standing on my toes and straining my neck. So score for making me feel a normal height and not such a short-arse (my husband's words)!
But what about the real test - comfort and walkability? These get an A+ from me, and as I've established, I'm a complete wuss now when it comes to shoes. I am normally a 7 1/2 shoe size. These only come in full sizes so I got a 7 since mark. recommends that half sizes size down. As you can see in the picture, mark. was right. These fit my feet like a glove...a foot glove...or a well-fitting shoe...that makes more sense. The straps are adjustable and very comfortable. I haven't worn them for a full day yet but they haven't dug into my feet or ankles at all. As far as walkability goes, the wedges make me feel completely stable. No stumbling, even after a couple glasses of wine (don't judge me!). I even carried my 5 month old baby around with me with no worries.
Plus, they are super cute and go with everything. So, these shoes are a big hit with me and I plan on getting a lot of wear out of them this spring and next week on vacation. I will let you guys know if I have any discomfort after a full day of wear outside but so far, I don't have a bad thing to say about these.
The Wedge Right In sandals will be available in my eboutique on 03/22/13 and they will sell for $34. If you like some height but also like being comfortable, do yourself a favor and pick up a pair.
