The Boardwalk Lace-Up Sandal

The Boardwalk Lace-Up Sandal is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple & Chic Great sandal for the summer and very comfy. Great price point too. I purchased mine for a Hawaii trip in May and can't wait to wear them with shorts, dresses, and swimsuits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Perfect for warm summer days! I got them in black and I like to cuff my jeans or wear cropped denim with them to show them off. The laces are pretty long, which is a plus.. I got a blister along the inside of my foot the first time I wore them but have since broken them in and they feel fine :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Sandal This is a great looking, great quality sandal. I was a bit nervous about ordering a shoe online from a store I've never purchase shoes from but am SOOOO glad I read the reviews first!! I read you should order a half size down, and so happy I did. I usually am a size 10 regular and decided to listen to the reviewers and ordered a 9H (9 1/2) and they fit perfect! Thanks for the great shoe and great on-point reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer sandal that goes with everything! I bought these in black and absolutely loooooove them. I was skeptical with the lace up as I am 5'2 and anything bunched around my ankle or running up my leg tends to cut me off, especially if I'm wearing a dress, but these don't. I am picky about comfort and have already worn these twice during long days of standing and walking and they did great. I'd definitely recommend them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointed Thought these were super cute, and I've always loved Madewell's shoes! After two weeks of wearing, a chunk of the material broke off the lace. It could have been because I tied the shoe too tight. However, for the quality of Madewell's things normally, I was slightly bummed the shoes were already falling apart. Now theres just a little string holding the two ends of lace together. Just a little bummed, but they are incredibly cute!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect But Size Down I was searching everywhere for the perfect pair of lace up sandals because they are so in style this summer. I normally wear an 8, and decided to order these in a 7.5 based on other reviews, and I am SO glad I did because they fit perfectly! They run a half size big. I am so impressed with how comfortable these sandals are, and the quality is excellent. I also love the little tassels at the end of the laces. I love them so much I am considering ordering another pair!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from stylish and sturdy, but design flaws I love these shoes, and they are clearly made with quality in mind, but the design has flaws. The straps are leather, but they are not one long solid piece of leather, so the seam where one length of lace meets the next tore and I have to duct tape it or else my lace would be 2/3 it's original length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs 1/2 size large These sandals are extremely comfortable, but they are not true to size. I am ALWAYS a size 10 in woman's shoes, except for adidas which tend to run exceptionally large. I bought a size 10 in these lace ups, and I had to return them for a 9 1/2 which fit perfectly. Other than size, these sandals are amazing! I love the desert camel color, and I cannot wait to rock them with my favorite summer dresses when we start getting warmer weather!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking sandal Love the look of the shoe. Very flattering. Looks great with jeans, shorts and dresses. Comfortable. The only flaw this sandal has is the sole is not high quality. Had to return first pair because the side of the sole peels. Got new pair and unfortunately, it peeled too. Going to keep since I like the look but really not happy that the side of the soles peeled.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Devastated I hummed and hawed about buying these sandals. Finally, after a good paycheck, I placed an order. They arrived today, and I was thrilled to open the package and find them exactly as they looked online. Beautiful color, fit perfectly. And then I quickly realized one of the straps was broken: the middle of one of the laces had already been worn down so that it was just two tiny white threads. For about two seconds I contemplated just keeping the shoes, and then quickly realized the strap would probably break completely in a matter of days. I am a loyal Madewell customer, and I was ecstatic to receive these shoes, but this is unacceptable. I will return them and buy another pair, because I want to give them one more chance. I had purchased them for a trip and I am very upset I won't get to have them in time.
