The Leia Ballet Flat in Velvet

The Leia Ballet Flat in Velvet is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle but special and surprisingly comfortable I love these flats. The color is subtle, but the velvet material is unexpected. I normally find flats to be unsupportive and generally uncomfortable, but these are great. The slight heel makes less flat and therefore more comfortable. One small caveat - they stain if they get any, any water or liquid on them at all. Somehow the velvet changes and shows the mark. If you're okay with it though, they're beautiful. I get complements on mine ALL the time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy and looks luxe Love these flats. They were super comfy right out of the box, no breaking in required. I bought the lovely pink color, and both the velvet and the shape of the flat look luxe and expensive. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous + So Comfortable! Velvet is everywhere this fall and winter, and these chic flats embrace the trend while being INCREDIBLY comfortable too. And the color is just gorgeous--a beautiful dusty pink, just as pictured on the website. I took my normal J Crew shoe size in these shoes and they fit perfectly. I'll be wearing these flats constantly--definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shoe runs 1/2 size large I love these flats. I am usually a true size 9 but had to return these for 8.5. My foot is a bit on the wide side of medium and the width fits fine. I also bought the leather loafer style and had to return those for 8.5 so for me Madewell shoes run a half size large. The quality and look of the shoe is beautiful and unlike anything I've seen. Usually these type of shoes do not offer enough structure or support but these are great and reasonable comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing shoes These shoes are beautiful. They’re the type of shoes that brighten your day when you wear them. They’re pink (but soft enough to be a neutral) and velvet, so how could they not be good? I would say they run a tad small. I usually wear a 6.5-7 in flats. I got these in a 7, and they’re a little snug. But I also think flats tend to stretch out over time. I highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Velvet Flats I love these! I was worried about online ordering but mine fit perfectly, and they are so comfortable. The color is a great mix - not too pink not too nude.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute Love this little flat! The small heel and lovely color take them up a notch. I am completely between sizes I wear a 6 1/2 or 7. I got the 6 1/2 and they are a bit snug. They did loosen slightly after one wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely but beware of width Perfect fall flat: beautiful blush color in on-trend velvet with just the right shimmer. Easy to dress up or down. Unfortunately the fit for me was off - while the length of the shoe was true to size there were large gaps of space on both sides of my feet near the middle/arch. You can see what I'm talking about on some of the models wearing this style shoe. Super wide & my feet aren't even that narrow. I'd recommend trying these on in-store if possible & get them if they fit. Sadly for me, these had to go back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and uncomfortable I REALLY wanted to like these. They are beautiful and so unique. The color is the perfect shade of rose pink and it glimmers nicely. The quality also seems pretty good. The look is pretty much perfect for a velvet flat. I ordered my usual size 9 and upon slipping into them they hurt so much! I believe my feet are normal width, and these seem to just be really narrow. The material felt like I was wearing wooden shoes. Definitely not walkable. If they had a little more give, I may have kept them. Perhaps they need a good break-in period, but I didn't want to take the chance.
