  • April Showers

    April Showers may bring May flowers, but in Atlanta - you never know what the weather will bring.  Although we’re excited for the upcoming sandal season, it is always best to prepare against the war on precipitation. Whether you’re looking to tuck your skinny jeans into a pair of Hunter wellies or strap up some Chacos, now is the time to invest in footwear built for the season surrounded by water. Take a peek at our top picks for footwear that will keep you dry and comfortable -- rain or shine!

     

     

    Before you make any assumptions about a colorful pair of toe gloves, consider the reason that this city is nicknamed “Hotlanta”. Sure, they aren’t your typical rain shoes, but these Vibrams were expertly-designed with gripping soles and breathable mesh. We love recommending them to our customers because these are a water resistant shoe that lacks the bulk of a rain boot. After all, when it's hot and sticky out, the last thing you want to wear is a pair of heavy pair of winter rain boots. In addition, for all of our river rats, these are the best shoes on the market for watersports such as paddle boarding, kayaking, and boating. So whether you’re kayaking the Chattahoochee, cruising along Lake Allatoona, or simply just running errands in the rain, rest assured that Vibram are a summer staple for the Atlanta heat.

     

    Oh, the beloved Chaco. The classic sport sandal is the summer uniform for many Atlanta residents. The company has loyal followers, lovingly referred to as the #ChacoNation. Their devoted fanbase is no surprise to us, considering the Chaco is a quintessential shoe for the outdoor enthusiast. Whether you’re hiking Stone Mountain, walking your dog around Piedmont Park, or just taking a casual walk along the Chattahoochee River, the Chaco sandal can be worn all-day, everyday. Best of all, the Spring 2017 collection offers a great variety of new colors and styles, so you can find the perfect fit for your feet. We recommend trying the Chaco Women’s Z/2 Classic, with a new print in a color perfect for a Georgia peach.

     

    Let’s explore the Blundstone. It's hard to find classic, rugged work boots that also look great when there's work to be done. This boot is lean, clean and as straightforward as they get. It’s preferred among customers for it’s lightweight exterior. Why does Abbadabba’s love them? The boots simplicity goes with everything - jeans, pants, shorts, whatever the Atlanta weather brings! And while they have evolved in style, design, and technology over the years, their consistent quality is what keeps customers coming back. Blundstone is built to go anywhere, do anything, and look great every step of the way.

     

    The Hunter rain boot has been around forever - and there’s a simple reason why: the waterproof rubber makes for an easy clean up. Best of all, these boots are season-less! Regardless of the ever changing fashion industry trends, these boots are timeless and can be worn throughout every season of the year. So if you like a classic brand, good quality, and a stylish boot, the Hunter Original Short Gloss Rain Boot is perfect for some fashionable puddle stomping.

     

    With the promise of April showers just around the corner, now is the best time to invest in some waterproof boots from Abbadabba’s. These top picks are only a glimpse into our variety of options and will help you strike the right balance between fashion and function.

  • Spring Shoe Staples

    A new season calls for a new set of wardrobe must-haves! Lucky for you, Abbadabba’s has everything you need to be comfortable in style. With the largest selection of sandals in the metro Atlanta area, we are sure to have exactly what you’re looking for. We’ve compiled some of our must-haves for the season below!

     

    Nothing says classic quite like the ankle strap silhouette. We are beginning to see this trend in both flats and heels, and in pops of color with everyday outfits. Its simple design can be dressed up or kept casual. From Kork-Ease wedges to Chaco sandals, expect to see this ankle strap trend continue throughout the spring and summer.

    Shine like a star with spring’s latest metallic trend! Every outfit can use just a little bit of sparkle. No matter the color, you will find just a bit more shine with your sandals this season. From Birkenstocks to wedges, designers are making sure that your comfortable spring favorites have a bit more flare!

    Historically lazy in appearance, the flip-flop has often been seen as shoe strictly for beach and poolside lounging. However, the rubber flip-flop has officially ditched its not-so-chic reputation for a fashionable revamp! Now available in cool colors and popping prints, the slide-on summer staple merges effortless wearability with a punch of personality.

    Spring forward in a classic pair of neutral wedges. We are currently featuring a huge variety of contemporary neutral wedged shoes that combine both style and utility. Neutral wedges offer ultimate versatility and the ability to be paired with any outfit in a unique and chic silhouette that makes them comfortable and easy to wear.

    For spring 2017, expect to definitely see a shift in the latest footwear fashions. However, the one fad that never goes out of style is adding comfort to your feet, something Abbadabba’s has been doing since 1981.

    Flatforms and Platforms:

    Sky’s the limit with this trend. Platforms and Flatforms take us back as far back as the 70’s. With their return in the 90’s it’s this funky decade that’s giving this trend new life. From sandals to boots, no matter your personal style, there’s a chunky heel for you! Shop Teva, Kork-Ease, and Fly London to get up on this trend!

  • How to Style Birkenstocks for Fall

    426a8875

    Socks and sandals. Now, this may not be the most chic pairing you can imagine, but it’s been given a style update as of late! No longer do you need to banish your favorite sandals to the back of your closet for the winter months. Pull them back out and pair them with a cozy winter sock and boom, you’re rocking the latest trend in Fall footwear.

     

    The style otherwise known as “Birkensocks” (Birkenstocks with socks), has taken off this season. Why? Well, here in the South we have less than ideal winter wonderland conditions. In a city where it could be 75 and sunny any given day of the year and 45 and cloudy the next, are you really going to subject your toes to shoe prison? Of course not.

    This “Birkensock” trend offers a solution to the crazy weather the South is known for. Plus, Birkenstock offers a wide range of styles! Perhaps you prefer the Boston to the Arizona or Gizeh? Or maybe you’re a fan of the Mayari, no matter which is your favorite, there’s good news for all Birk lovers: They’re good for your feet, easy to clean AND (for all those Vegans) they boast some cruelty free styles. So, how do you style this trend for Fall? Abbadabba’s has you covered!

    To keep your toes extra toasty with Boston Suede styled with a Smartwool Cable sock. This versatile combo can be work with jeans, leggings, skirts, tights, etc. Add just about any top and sweater and you’re a part of one of Fall’s biggest trends.

    Pair a Gizeh with some fun Injinji toe socks to keep every toe cozy! Style them with Fall staples, black leggings and a comfy sweater, for easy style and comfort throughout the day.

    Snag a pair of the ever cool Stance Socks and rock the Silver Mayari with them. Pair with a boyfriend jean and loose Fall sweater for a comfy outfit with a little sparkle!
