Abeo Shoes : The Dee Wedge with Metatarsal Support

This review of the the Abeo Dee wedge sandal is sponsored by The Walking Company. The opinions are completely my own based on experience. 

I sat across from a woman at the salon, both of us under dryers as our foils did their thing. She had on a pair of Abeo shoes: the ever-popular, water-resistant Goleta sandal. I resisted the temptation to start an awkward conversation about comfort shoes–she wouldn’t be able to hear me anyway.

Abeo Dee Sandals

Abeo may be known for supportive active sandals and dress casual flats, but they’re upping the game in the style department with these summery espadrille wedges. The Abeo Dee closed-toe wedge sandal is new for 2017, featuring arch support and a metatarsal support option–which, as you know, is hard to find in 2 1/2″ heel.

I had a chance to wear my new Abeo Dee wedges out to dinner with my husband last week. On our short walk from the car to the restaurant, I realized why I prefer flats and platforms–even an elevation of 2 1/2″ feels a bit out of my comfort zone! And my knees weren’t the ones complaining, rather one tiny little bump on the outer side of my foot below the pinkie. Some podiatrists call it a tailor’s bunion, others a bunionette (how quaint). The vamp just happens to cross my foot right at that point. If you don’t have noticeable bunions or tailor’s bunions as I do, I doubt you’d have an issue at all with the Abeo Dee, especially if you’re looking for a comfortable espadrille wedge.

I am willing to wear my new Abeo shoes around to see if I can stretch the soft suede upper to conform more to the sides of my feet. I love the style and the trendy lace-up closure. The footbed is comfortable and adequately cushioned, while the arch support is moderate. I don’t necessarily notice the metatarsal support as much as I expected to.

Abeo Dee

I ordered the size 10 (I normally wear a 9.5-10). The Abeo Dee is available in whole sizes 6-10, from The Walking Company. If a heel isn’t your cup of tea, don’t miss Abeo’s vast collection of active sandals, casual sandals and fitness footwear–most available in three different support levels!

Do you have a favorite pair of Abeo shoes? We’d love to hear from you!

    I love Abeo’s Basha sandals and Balboa flipflops so much that I bought the exact same styles twice, when the first pairs got too worn to wear in public. I also have a pair of flats that I don’t think are made anymore — great arch support and the wide width is great for my post-bunion surgery feet.

    I am so happy & grateful to have found the Abeo sandals from Walking Company. The Baina is one of my favorites, with excellent support for my high instep, as well as the footbed that allows me to walk & stand on hard tile without getting a backache. I have them in different colors as well as the Blythe, a different style but the same supportive footbed.

    The Abeo BIO Fantine is the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I have 4 pairs!! Two are in use and two are waiting in the closet for fear they quit making them. They were the first pair of shoes I found that make my very painful tailor’s bunion manageable. The strap doesn’t cross at the bunion. And the great arch and metatarsal support help take the impact off the bunion. The vibram soles also seem to reduce impact on my sore feet. The soles are the perfect combination of lots of support to keep the pressure off the bunion while still being slightly squishy and not so hard as to cause pain. Even my husband commented on a vacation to Savannah about how much I had walked with no complaints. I explained it wadmy awesome shoes. When we passed a Walking Company downtown, he was quick to encourage me to go shopping after that. I just wish I could find a roomy closed toe version for winter.

    I love my ABEO Halifax slippers so much that I wear them every day, all day long. They are so comfortable I forget to take them off when I go outside but they are so cute, no one notices! I also love my new Advance walking shoes. They make my feet so happy! I am such an ABEO fan now that I can’t wait to try the Dee Wedge. They are so cute!!!
