The Leila Sandal in Suede

The Leila Sandal in Suede is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weird sizing but so worth it I wear a size 10 shoe in real life but in Madewell sandals/flats I usually have to size down. I ended up exchanging a 9.5 for a 9 in these shoes and though they felt pretty tight initially, I knew the leather would loosen a little. Another issue was that my pinky toe was kind of stuck in between the top two straps which made for an interesting sensation that I've gotten used to. Since breaking in the shoes, I love them and they are my go to for most outfits (I bought the ash color). What makes these shoes different than other Madewell flats I have is the sole is super cushiony!! I have very sensitive feet and these treat them well. Though they feel weird at first I definitely recommend!! I get lots of compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from adorable these run true to size - however if you have wide feet you may want to invest in half a size up. im a 7, sometimes a 7.5 (with narrow feet) and took a 7 in these. the style is adorable and the red adds a great pop to outfits. i did not choose the other two colors as they werent as versatile nor worked for all seasons. (red does in my humble opinion). i walked several blocks in these and had no issues with blisters or uncomfortable-ness. love. and great price on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spring/summer shoe I've been looking for a sandal like this for a long time (one that can do double-duty as a work flat and a casual sandal), so I jumped on the Leila sandal in suede and the cognac leather. Comparatively, I'd say the suede runs a bit larger than the leather version. I'm usually between a 6 and a 6h, and I took a 6 (my usual Madewell size). I've got a little heel slipping with the suede pair, but it's not uncomfortable. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them These exceeded my expectations! I purchased the curry powder in my usual 6.5 and a 6 based on the reviews from those who sized up, but the 6 is way too small while the 6.5 is perfect (granted I am probably a larger 6.5 due to pregnancy). The color on the website is an accurate representation of the color in real life, not a super bright yellow. Both color and style are versatile and perfect for spring/summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable shoe I own I watched this sandal for a few weeks before I bought it. I am so happy with my purchase! The red color is bright, sharp and cheerful! The fit is absolutely perfect! This sandal is so comfortable I could wear it daily! Great shoe that is DEFINITELY worth the money!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love I was hesitant about these sandals, but decided to order them anyway and I'm so glad I did - they're adorable! They're comfortable and perfect for spring/summer! I normally wear a 6.5 and took my usual size in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs large but super comfortable I'm usually a 8.5 but sized down to 8. These sandals are beautiful and simple! The insole is also really soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for spring and summer I bought the curry powder. The color looks very similar online and in person. I am always, always a 7, but had to size down to 6 1/2 for these. Will be a staple for the warmer months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for early fall season I got the mustard color and it adds a nice contrast to a lot of my outfits. The quality of the shoe seems great. They do fit a little bit on the bigger side once you break them in, but not too much to easily fall off. I am super satisfied with these sandals. They are comfy enough to wear them 8h straight on a workday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pretty summer sandal These are like a soft mint color in person, and look super cute on. I haven't figured out how I'll style them yet, but I love them as a pretty sandal for summer parties!
