How severe is this angle?

While wedges look more stable than stilettos, you can tumble off high ones.  If you feel unstable when you walk, try something a bit lower.

Does the ankle strap dig in?

If should hit at a comfortable spot and secure tightly without cutting into your leg.

Is the sole flexible at the ball of the foot?

Flexibility is important; you should be able to bend your foot and have a normal, not clumping, walk.

Do your toes hang over?

As with any heel, a wedges height pushes your foot forward, and toe overhang can trip you up, especially when coupled with an inflexible sole.
