The Boardwalk Ankle-Wrap Sandal

The Boardwalk Ankle-Wrap Sandal is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and quality These sandals are so comfortable and look great with anything. The Olive color is a fun take on a neutral to give any outfit some extra flare! I see some of the other colors in my closet in the near future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I remember when these came to Madewell like 6 years ago, my sister had them and I was obsessed with them but they sold out so quickly I never got to have a pair. So of course I immediately jumped on these when I saw them online! The quality, like other leather products of Madewell, is top notch. I think these fit true to size and while they DO take breaking in, they are still the perfect summer sandal. A lot of people are complaining about the tightness of the ankle strap, but these wear in (it's leather!!!) so you need them to start out tighter. My sister said she wore hers to death so they stretched out a lot, as leather does. The only complaint I agree with is that these are a little narrow, but that's something I can live with. Overall would 10/10 recommend and I'm going to buy another pair myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with these sandals! The perfect, simple sandal for spring and summer. I love the feel and the color! The one potential downside - the strap around the ankle is a little snug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still breaking them in Like what everyone else said, you need to break them in to stretch out the leather. But really nice quality leather. I also like that the soles are rubberized on the bottom to prevent slipping on smooth floors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sandal! The leather is soft, and gets softer as you wear them. The shoe fits so well, and feels sturdy and durable like it would last a long time. I wish I would have gotten them in another color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Sandal I was sooo excited to get these this summer at a discount. I got the black first and loved them so much I picked them up in tan. I am normally a 6.5 and that's what I got. If you're bordering between sizes I would get the bigger size because they are narrow. The size I got works perfect for me. They took me 5 days to really break in. I wore them for 2 hours the first time and increases the amount of use each time until I wore them in. Since they are leather, they do stretch a little bit. If you don't like breaking in shoes, I would be cautious. If you have very wide feet I'd go up at least half a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect simple leather sandal I've been look for awhile for this style sandal and this was the perfect find. The quality is nice and the leather is beautiful. I noticed people complained about the ankle strap being too small, but mine fit great. I did notice after wearing them for a couple weeks that the strap seemed to stretch out slightly, which might benefit those who are concerned with it being too tight. I definitely recommend them and suggest buying true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Neutral Sandal Love these sandals as they go with almost everything! I had to size up a half a size but other than that they are perfect. I was weary after reading some of the reviews posted but these are really great! Don't hesitate to purchase these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Sandals I purchased these sandals despite of many bad reviews. I liked the simple design, and I am a big fan of English Saddle leather goods from madewell. At first they were very uncomfortable around the ankle area, but after the 3rd wear they are perfectly fine. I am wearing them right now and they are beautiful. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the fit. I have a few different versions of the boardwalk sandal and I like it just as much. The back of the strap is meant to be adjusted to your liking and they're true to size. I got these in English Saddle and came back for the black pair.
