The Ariane Slide Sandal in Black Leather

The Ariane Slide Sandal in Black Leather is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Slip on Sandal These do run small, I ordered 1/2 size up after reading reviews but could have gone 1 full size up. The back strap is close to ankle so I gave it another notch and they fit perfect, but again I still could have went up another 1/2 size. The quality is good and they are just like pictured. They are comfortable from the start, I didn't feel there were stiff at all as others have stated. They are everything I hoped they were. Great with skirts, shorts, jeans and pants. They looking dressier than Birkenstocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful clunky sandal I bought these on sale and I am so glad I did as it was a worthy purchase. Unlike the previous reviews, I did not find this sandal difficult to break in. In fact, I found it quite comfortable. Nevertheless, like the previous reviews, this sandal does run small. I typically wear a size 7 1/2 - 8. I ordered the 8 and it's a perfect fit. Had I ordered the 7 1/2, I'm sure I would have had to return it. The leather is gorgeous and looks true to the picture. Although there appears to be adjustable buckles in the sandal, it is not adjustable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from alternative to the birk This sandal is so cute, and for me, it feels like a less clunky version than a very popular shoe--it's more streamlined, has a minimal vibe, and doesn't invoke memories of the socks w/ sandals look from the '90s. I prefer Madewell's version to any other out there now. I will say that I sized up a half-size in this slide, and it fits perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than Birki! Love my new sandals! Sophisticated, well made and comfortable. What more can I ask? The footbed runs a little short but the straps are adjustable if you need a little extra room in the width. Very nice quality leather is really comfortable, no break in time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Slides I am a true 8 1/2 in 99% of my shoes. Unfortunately I didn't read the other reviews before I bought these! They were definitely way too small. I definitely could have gone a 1/2 size up or even a whole size. I had bought them as a final sale too! Luckily a friend of mine bought them from them right away. She wears a 7 1/2 and these were an 8 1/2. So, I think they are cute and they seemed like the most comfortable slide and a nice alternative to a true Birkenstock. I wish I could still get them! But I think they are unavailable now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute - size up 1/2 size These are very cute but leather feels a bit stiff. I ultimately kept the white eyelet color as that leather was softer. I did have to size up 1/2 size. Overall, a chic alternative to the boho birkenstock. The little tabs on top of the straps are very hard to adjust. So, I'd just stick with the where the tabs are placed. I do have narrow feet and they were just fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not quite what I was looking for... The sandal looks just as it does in the photo. It's good quality. It ran pretty small, though. I normally wear a size 7 and ordered 7.5, but it is still too small. In addition, I feel like the back strap is too close to the front of my ankle, which makes me think it's going to rub and possibly leave a blister. It's also really stiff, and will likely take a lot of time to break in. I decided to return these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leather is too hard The leather is too stiff and the edges of the straps dug in to my feet painfully when I tried them on. I ordered my usual size and they were very slightly too small and my heel was over the back edge of the sandal on one foot. I returned them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs really small. Need to buy one full size up! I wish I could return these but I bought it on salt. So I'm stuck w them. I can't even wear them cups they run so small!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great looking, not very comfortable Loved the style and was excited to get them. I am a consistent 7 but they were a bit short. As soon as I put them on I could tell I would have painful blisters in no time. The straps are of very stiff leather with sharp edges. I fear the break-in process would not be fun. Sadly, I had to return them.
