The Ella Pump in Velvet

The Ella Pump in Velvet is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size down! I love these. I never wear any type of heel (NEVER). But for these, I made an exception. The deep indigo velvet is just beautiful. Easy to dress up or dress down. However, be sure to size down! They run pretty big in my opinion. In Madewell shoes, I range from an 8 to an 8.5. I initially ordered the 8.5 and they were way too big, then returned for a size 8. Honestly I could get a size 7.5 and they would probably fit much better. If you tend to wear stockings or tights with your shoes, though, then you'll have just enough room if you stay true to your normal size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection... These shoes fit and look like a dream. Indigo is my favorite color and this blue velvet is fresh; luxe. I've had my eye on these for a while, so I'm ecstatic to finally own them (thanks, discount + sale) and call them my first pair of heels! They do run large: I'm normally a 7.5 but sized down to 7 because my heel was loose. Now it's as snug as a bug in a rug and comfortable.

Madewell, please don’t ever discontinue making this shoe. You have a classic here that people will want to come back to for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chic for the office! These heels are not only practical for a working woman on the go, but they're also chic and work with any outfit! Once they're a little worn in they seem like they'll be comfy and great for my busy lifestyle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ella velvet pump This is a beautiful, classic, and very classy shoe. The blue velvet is absolutely gorgeous and the heel height is perfect for me. This shoe runs a half size large. I couldn’t get it in size 6.5 so I ordered the 7 and will get heel liners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pumps! I have been looking for a pair of block-heeled low pumps in navy. These are perfect! The fit is TTS, the velvet is rich and lovely, they are very comfortable right out of the box. I will be wearing them with a navy tulle skirt and navy striped top with sequins for a formal event. I'm sure I'll also wear them with jeans, skirts and other dresses too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easily a work staple Bought this to wear for Christmas dinner and I ended up loving it and wearing it to work. Super easy to dress up or down with jeans or a dress. The only con is that my feet ended up with blisters at the end of the day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large I am normally a 7.5 but bought these in a 7 based on the previous reviews. So glad I did! They fit almost perfectly, a little snug but I'm sure they’ll be perfect after I break them in. The blue velvet is high quality and these shoes are more comfortable than flats to walk in for my foot shape (greater starter heel too!) . If these were pointed they would be perfect! Overall these shoes are a good cross between cute and functional, just run about a half size large.
