The Turnabout Sandal

The Turnabout Sandal is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chic and comfortable, but slightly small I usually wear size 7.5, but size 8 in these sandals as in other Madewell shoes fits me well. I have wide feet and often have a problem with sandals/shoes in medium width being too narrow, but due to the adjustable straps in the front I was able to adjust the width, so they fit perfectly in width as well as in length. The color I got is a nice camel color that goes with everything. I wish I could buy them in other colors too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dressy Summer Sandal These Sandals are great! I will say, I have narrow feet and feel like these are perfect for me. However, if you tend to have wide feet and it has been a problem then these shoes may not be the best. Also, I feel they are true to size but maybe slightly runs smaller. If you are in between sizes and debate between a half size or whole size, I think it would be best to go up. They are Italian so I believe that they are well made. But since they are Italian they may run slightly smaller even if Madewell is an American company. Regardless I love them, have wore them every day and don't regret the purchase. The blue color is perfect. Have already received high praise in the few weeks I have had them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun color, super comfy and chic Love these shoes. The blue is a really vibrant purplish shade. I'm fairly short, and I love the slight wedge...makes my legs look longer and leaner, but they are still really wearable. I have a wide foot and really skinny ankles - the adjustable straps were great at addressing both issues. I got them on mega sale....great value!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from slightly different than expected Pretty sandal, heel is solid but straps are a little more flimsy than expected. I ordered the thai chili color, I was expecting a pinky/nude but was surprised to receive a coral color. Either way they pair nicely with most colors and add a feminine touch to any outfit. My only complaint would be that my pinky toe gets caught in between the strap spilt but that could be a personal problem. Overall, I'm happy with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Sandal Super cute little sleek sandal. Fit is true to size. Suede is supple and comfortable. LOVE the extra bit of height! They look adorable with a large variety of outfits. I did not find the ankle to be tight in the slightest. I have them on the second to the last (tightest) hole and there are still three more holes to go larger. I'm 5'3", 110lbs. There is also plenty of room to punch holes to go even smaller or bigger with the ankle strap. The toe area is also adjustable. They were totally worth the $ in terms of quality. Italian shoes? Yes please. I did notice that I ordered a size 7, the box also says size 7, but the stamp on the bottom of the shoes says they are 7.5. They fit as a 7.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really cute I was a bit worried when i bought this sandal. I read in other reviews that it was small at the ankle but it isnt for me. Its really cute and goes with everything from a jeans to shorts or a little dress. Im really happy with my choice and the shipping was really fast. The only thing is they are a little bit loud when i walk they make noise which is a little bit annoying for people around me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous sandals but ankle strap is tight I love everything about these sandals except that the ankle strap is uncomfortably snug. I'd never thought of myself as having particularly large ankles but these make me feel like I do! Hopefully an extra hole and a bit of stretching should make them wearable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but not a lot of support Lovely sandal. It does run a bit tight in the ankle however I think they made it like this because leather can stretch. Another thing I would tell someone about to purchase is that there is not a lot of support. The ankle strap is basically the only thing keep the shoe on you. When you lift your foot up the heels kind of sags. Hope this makes sense. Still is a really cute sandal for summer.
