Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! They are so cute, so soft, so perfect. Exactly what I expected. I wish the brown was available in my size! Love this brand, everything really is Made Well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My NEW "go to" shoe! Ordered these in the tan color first and LOVE them...I get so many compliments every time I wear them.. They look great with rolled up boyfriend jeans and long skirts and dresses. I love them so much that I tracked them down in black at a Madwell store thanks to a helpful sales associate at my local Madwell store. I'd grab these while you can!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please make a close toe version Tried this and agree with the reviewer below about the round toe and how the detailing makes this shoe not very polished in person. Comfy but I'm disappointed. Please make a closed-toe version (and get rid of the wacky piping)! The lace up flat trend has been knocking around for a while and selling out like crazy. Madewell has one of the few versions of this at a reasonable price and quality; if you do a closed, almond-toe version it would sell out in a flash!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from On trend lace-up, runs small I really wanted a lace-up shoe for spring that wouldn't break the bank. This flat was just it, however I didn't realize it had a peep-toe in the front. Something to be aware of if you aren't a peep-toe shoe person. I don't mind it, I think it makes the shoe look better on. The other thing I wish I'd known: It runs about a half size small. I ordered a 7 1/2 and am exchanging for an 8. Otherwise, it's a great shoe. I like how you can tie the laces tall (about mid calf) or short at the ankle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe for Spring & Summer I bought this shoe to wear for a majority of the year. What I really like is the lace up feature. The leather was a bit stiffer than it looked, but I am sure it will soften with wear. I usually wear a 6 in sandals and tend to order as half size larger in closed toes shoes from madewell and jcrew. I ordered these in a 6.5 and they fit great. I didn't realize they were open toe, that was my mistake for not reading. I was looking for totally closed toe, but I like these so much I will probably keep them anyways.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from they're nice, but... I own several pairs of Madewell shoes. I buy and buy again because I love their styles, the sizing is consistent and the quality is always there. Except this time. Although these shoes are extremely comfortable and stylish, they're just not of the same quality that I have come to expect from Madewell. The leather is thin and cheap, and they're not made in Italy but rather in Brazil. I bought these online because I live in Canada (no Madewell stores up here :( ) and would have never paid what I did for them had I seen them in person. Because of outrageous shipping prices, taxes and duties, these are just not worth the price, even on sale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading Product Shots Please take some more product shots of this shoe, it is not as pretty in person. I saw this online and from the images and description thought of Alexa Chung, but when my package arrived and I tried them on, they weren't elegant at all. There is a weird leather piping on top of the shoe leading up to the peep toe and the shoe is too round at the toe, making it look a bit frumpy. Lovely leather, great fit, but returned due to the design/style.
