The Ella Pump

The Ella Pump is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
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 5 out of 5 by from Love at first sight! But I haven't worn them out yet. Just opened the box and instantly loved the tan color. It's a bit more subtle, neutral, or softer, than some of the photos depict. Heel is a comfy height - that's sort of obvious I guess - and there's no toe cleavage! The toe is almond shaped. I wear a generous size 10 and some Madewell's are a bit snug, but not these. Some may think the Ella runs slightly large, but for me I'm pleased. Overall, I think they're comfortable and hope they remain so over the course of a long day. They are a flattering design for my feet, ankles, and legs. Unless Im overlooking something, I think these will be very popular, Madewell; I hope you're making a lot!! Would love in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Lovely! I loved the look of these online, but I was a bit nervous to try these for fear that my foot would be too wide or that they would be uncomfortable. My arch is low and shoes like this don't always work for me. I am so glad I gave them a chance! These fit like a slipper. Very Comfortable! Lots of cushion, room for my toes, and my arch did not hurt. I typically wear a size 9 but they were way too big. The 8.5 fit much better. Both colors are nice, but the blue was gorgeous. These will be great for the spring!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect shoe I never thought I could wear a block heel because I have fuller legs. But these are very flattering! And very fresh looking, love them. Both colors are great, please make these in other colors as well. Love the heel height, perfect porportions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute -- but sizing issues Based on warnings from other reviewers, I ordered these in my regular 6.5 and also in a 6. The 6.5 was definitely big, I was almost walking out of it. I'm inclined to keep the 6, hoping they stretch a bit, as suede typically does. That all said, the tan looks just as pictured -- the heel-height is perfect.
