The Gladiator Sightseer Sandal

The Gladiator Sightseer Sandal is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glorious, glorious gladiator sandal I've been a fan of gladiator sandals for as long as I can remember, and I've owned quite a few pairs. This sandal is by far the best I've purchased in a long time (and quite possibly, ever). Pros: - They feel sturdy and secure on, no matter what your walking situation might be (long distances or short trips). - The tan brown leather is beautiful. - Truly unique in their design. Gladiator sandals can sometimes look pretty gaudy, but this one looks refined. Cons: - Can sometimes take a while to get them on because they are lace-up, but you surely must be prepared for that when buying them. Word of advice: don't tie the strings tooooo tight, or they'll leave deep impressions on your feet, make it difficult to walk, and could also potentially cut off circulation (no bueno).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love these sandals I purchased the silver metallic in the store. The sales clerk assured me of their comfort. I was truly taken back by not only the quality I've come to expect from Madewell, the great look itself, but when I wore them for the first time the incredible comfort and support they provide. I mostly have to wear wedges and support shoes, I walked in these for 8 hours straight and felt great. Amazing. I liked them so much I purchased the black as aell as the tan online just so I would have them for next Summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy! These are great! They are comfortable (once you get the tension right in the laces) and look great with long skirts, short skirts, dresses, skinny jeans - in fact, with everything! I bought the black AND the warm sand because they were on sale, and at that price - it would be rude not to :) Don't look at any more reviews - they might sell out - just click click and buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Summer Sandal I'm a sandal hoarder and these are by far my favorite. Theyre so comfortable. Didn't have to break them in. Love the color and they look great with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many compliments I always wanted gladiators like these but I kept holding off. I finally bought these in tan at an excellent price and I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. The good thing is the leather really holds the knot when you tie it around your ankles which is good since i do so much walking in NYC. And they are perfect for casual summer days or dressy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Them! They are beautifully made and look way more expensive than they are. It helps that I got them at a steal...thanks, Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase this Summer - Get them! Buy these sandals, you won't regret it. They look a lot more expensive than they are. The leather is good quality - will last a long time. They fit true to size. I am almost always a 8.5 in sandals, sometimes a size 9 in ballet flats. I bought a 8.5 in these sandals and they fit perfect. Absolutely LOVE them and get tons of compliments on them (total strangers stop me to ask where I got them). First purchase from Madwell - did not disappoint. Thinking of buying them in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New fave! These sandals were my first shoe purchase from Madewell. I am so excited I went with this color...just a touch of "fig" but not too much and easy to incorporate with my black & white wardrobe. I am so impressed with the overall quality (leather, style, fit). I usually wear a 6.5/7. I ordered a 7 and needless, these are pure perfection. I will definitely be ordering the black ones! These sandals make my feet happy.
