The Ella Pump

The Ella Pump is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these more than expected, TTS for wide feet To be honest I thought these looked like little girl shoes when I first saw them. But, I love the block heel and when I tried them on they were just perfect and looked grown up enough for professional wear. The nude color is perfect to go with everything. Most people say to size down in Madewell shoes, and with these I can see why. I have wide feet and so I purchased my normal size. They seem a tad long, but certainly not too wide. In fact, I find the fit really comfortable, but if you don't have wide feet you may want to size down. Overall, the look is very pretty, classy, and simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Anytime Shoe! This is my new favorite shoe. After I bought the blue ones, I absolutely had to have the tan. They are comfortable for my 12+ hours at the office and look fantastic with jeans, dresses, slacks, etc. I typically wear a size 10, but the 9.5 fits best. The only negative I have is that there are only two colors available. Please make more colors, Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really comfy. Perfect for work I held off on wearing these because I was expecting these to require a break-in period, but they did not AT ALL. Wore them 2 days in a row all day long (at work, not much walking, but enough to make most shoes hurt). I have the beige ones which will go with EVERYTHING. Great for my business casual-casual office because they have just enough heel to make me look a little extra put-together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flat duck feet owners rejoice! I have hard to fit feet, so my expectations going into this were really low. But when I slipped them on I was surprised how comfortable and easy these were to wear. A tiny bit of "toe cleavage" but not enough to where my foot either felt like it was falling out of the shoe, or wasn't flattered. Walking, I find this shoe almost as comfortable as a flat, but with added height. The quality of these is great- I think they look like they are more expensive than they are, and the color of the navy suede is great. Two very happy duck feet over here, thanks to Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous--RUNS BIG! I should have paid attention to the reviews! I haven't worn a size 7 since high school a zillion years ago, but my normal 7.5 was way too big. These are gorgeous! Sending them back for a 7 and can't wait to be able to wear them. Perfect heel height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I purchased these due to the other rave reviews and was not disappointed! These are a closet staple. So comfy, easily transition from work to play and feel amazing. I agree with other reviews that these run 1/2 size larger. I typically wear a 9.5 but the 9 fit me best. Can wait to buy the other color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful, but runs at least half a size large I've been looking for a pair of shoes with this heel height and was so delighted to see them on sale. Because of other's warnings that it ran large, I went down from my usual 8 1/2 to an 8 and was so glad I did so, although even the 8s are a little roomy. Can't wait to wear these this spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and Comfort These shoes are perfect. I am 5'1" which makes the heel height perfect for petite/short women. I purchased my regular size and they are a bit snug at first, as new shoes will be, but wear in quite nicely. I work with children so I am on my feet constantly and my feet had no complaints with these shoes. I think I might buy the other color as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but too big I sized down when purchasing these shoes ( 8.5 instead of 9). When I opened the box, I was amazed. The shoes were beautiful but huge! They looked to be at least a size 10. There was at least an inch of room between my heel and the back of the shoe. So I ordered an 8, and they were way too small. So now I have the hassle of returning both pair. I'm not sure whether I'll try again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful shoe, lousy fit I really wanted to love the Ella Pump and welcome it into my wardrobe. The Tan Cliff in particular is elegant and versatile, but I can't find a size that fits me. Because other reviewers had warned that the Ella runs big, I ordered a half size smaller than my usual size (7.5). When the size 7 pumps arrived, I swam in them, so I exchanged them for size 6.5. I could barely stuff my feet into the 6.5. It's as if the manufacturer skipped sizes 7-7.5 and made the shoe in 6.5 and 8. Sadly, the Ella will be going back and my search for a stylish and practical tan/taupe pump will continue.
