The Leia Ballet Flat in Suede

The Leia Ballet Flat in Suede is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable I absolutely love these shoes, they are so comfortable and cute! As soon as I stepped into them it felt like I had been wearing them forever; they took no time at all to wear in. I also love the small heel, I think it makes them much more comfortable to walk in than regular ballet flats. I also love that they cover more of the foot, so no awkward toe cleavage shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Grad School I've been looking for a flat that is comfortable enough to walk to campus in, will look good with skirts and dresses, and will make my jeans look more professional. THESE ARE THE ONES. They allow a little room for a light sock as the weather gets cooler, and I am all about that. The slight heel gives some added support, and the quality is super. Really pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love at first fitting I'd been looking for a pair of black flats that are not too pointy, not too round, not too 'flat' and not too open to the point where the toe lines show. I'd been unsuccessful, until I met this baby today. I tried them on, and I thought "ok. i gotta have them." We all know that feeling! My usual size 6h felt a bit loose so i sized down to 6. Now they feel tight(but not uncomfortable) and I'm hoping they'll stretch out a bit as I break them in... When that happens, I may just marry them. My feet are wider than regular feet due to a minor bunion, but these shoes are as comfortable as socks! If no one notices my new shoes, I will make sure they see them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not-so-basic Basic These flats hugged my feet like a glove as soon as I put them on. I walked around DC with them and had zero issues at the end of the day. I'm in love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good basic shoe These are a perfect basic flat. Small heel so it’s a very comfortable flat shoe. Nice quality suede. Fits true to size. Was able to wear for a long time and didn’t experience any discomfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable! I have had issues with other Madewell shoes (particularly their flats) not being comfortable on the back of the heel, but these are great! So cute. Makes any outfit look put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely I love these shoes! They're not completely flat which gives them a bit of fun. You can dress them up or down, they'll go with anything. A new staple piece in my closet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shoes but a tad short and wide I almost always wear size 10 in non-athletic shoes, and my feet are slim/shallow, so finding the right size is hard. In expensive, fine Italian loafers I wear size 10.5 narrow, but most shoes aren't available in that size. J Crew loafers fit well in size 10. These are too short in size 10 and I'm afraid will be too wide in size 10.5, so, sadly, I must return them. They're cute and would go with pretty much everything!
