Review: Marc Fisher Adalyn Espadrille Wedge

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

I had a big grin when I opened my package. Finally, my first ever March Fisher shoe! Yay! I know, I sound pathetic (kind-of, bragging or whatever). But for someone like me who grew up with nothing, this buy is considered a luxury.

I love how fashion bloggers style the Adalyn wedge. They are everywhere this summer, as well as last year. I'm sure you've seen this too on someone else's social media account. 

But is it worth the price?

I'm the type of person who doesn't like to pay full price for an item unless I really really like it. I no longer have a job since becoming a full-time-mommy (huhu!), so I have to be shrewd with my money decisions. (Big thanks to my hubby for giving me a shopping allowance.) I finally gave in to this when I saw a good deal online.


WHAT I THOUGHT

I went for the Adalyn (2) espadrille wedge instead of the more popular Adalyn wedge in tan/saddle. This is because I stand at a towering height of 5'1", I'm afraid the more pronounced appearance of the tan/saddle hue might look too chunky on me, so I went for the light neutral hue.

The Adalyn wedge from March Fisher is a dupe of the Chloe's more expensive version. Below are my thoughts on this wedge:

Pros:

  • Easily elevates your style.
  • Both a classic and trend.
  • Versatile. Goes with everything from jeans to cute dresses.
  • Heel height may seem high at 4", but the platform makes it comfortable.
  • Stable heels.
  • Looks bulky but is actually light for walking. Believe me, I bought cheap pieces before and they are cumbersome to walk with.

Cons:

  • Takes time breaking in. This may feel a bit snug/tight at first but stretches with wear.
  • The thick strap on the ankle may be a turn off to some.

So how much did I pay for it? I bought my espadrille wedge at 59% off (biggest grin ever). Also, I went half-size down and it was a perfect fit.


Worth the price? For me, if I could get a good deal of it, then it's worth it. (Hey, just one practical mama here.) Anyway, I also found a more affordable option at Steve Madden -- the Jaylen wedge.

Overall, I love how light it is for walking. As mentioned, above cheap wedges are cumbersome to walk with (and I've bought a lot of those in the past). The light neutral hue doesn't look too bulky on my petite frame. I also love how versatile this wedge is.

This is indeed a wardrobe staple. What's your go-to wedge/shoes? Feel free to share yours in the comment section below. ;)
