The Ava Slingback Flat in Leather

The Ava Slingback Flat in Leather is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute & comfy! Surprisingly accommodating for wide feet Cute, and the cushioned sole does make them more comfortable than most other flats. Normally I size up to 7 because of my wide feet, but found that the slingback strap was a bit loose when I tried it on in store, so I was delighted that my wide feet could fit into the 6.5. I may have been a bit ambitious in stretching them out - it'll definitely take a bit more time, and it is creating some creases in the leather, but I'm sure they'll be very comfortable once they're fully broken in. At the sale price, I can't complain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice classic flat! Great flats! They’re really comfortable and make your legs look longer than they actually are which is cool. I’m usually a 7.5 and purchased these in a 7 after trying both on in the store - the 7.5 fit alright but the back strap did not feel right at all so I went with the 7!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for summer nights Cute little sling that will be a snap to finish an outfit. For me, these ran true to size. Of note, there's no elastic on the sling back, so you'll want to try on to get your fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Beautiful classic shoes that you can dress up or down! So sad when they arrived and found they are too big! I am a size 8.5 in everything but these are too large for me. Will purchase the size 8s. Can't wear to pair them with my Madewell Summer jeans this summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So classy! Get your usual size! First of all, these shoes are ridiculously classy and comfortable and go with everything. Now on to sizing: I would recommend getting your usual size. I read a lot of reviews to size down, and since I’m either 7.5 or 8 in Madewell (8 everywhere else) I thought surely I would need a 7.5. I decided to order both to be safe and glad I did. The 8 fits perfectly. With the smaller size, the back strap was too snug and pushed my feet too far forward into the shoe, causing the shoe to gap at the sides. It looked awkward and was very uncomfortable. For me, the back strap is perfect—if it were higher or elastic it would dig in. Right now it feels like wearing regular flats. No heel slipping when walking, even on my smaller (7.5) foot. I can’t speak for the suede version but I hope the fit is similar because I plan to buy a pair! Perfect transitional flat, would love to see more colors in leather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes, works with everything I usually find pointed toe shoes squish your toes too much - not the case with these puppies. Perfect fit and the strap didn't irritated my heel. Some of the best dressy-casual flats in my closet. I've done a fair bit of walking in them, and I don't recommend taking them for a hike, but they work well with my daily commute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Perfect with boyfriend jeans and a tee. Sporty but dressy when they need to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs a bit small I sized down from 7 to 6h in these shoes but they were just a bit too small. Great quality and style, so I’m reordering in my true size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable I fell in love as soon as I saw them. Ordered a half six bigger than what I normally wear so my foot would not hang off the back. They fit perfectly.
