The Leila Sandal in Suede

The Leila Sandal in Suede is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spring/summer shoe I've been looking for a sandal like this for a long time (one that can do double-duty as a work flat and a casual sandal), so I jumped on the Leila sandal in suede and the cognac leather. Comparatively, I'd say the suede runs a bit larger than the leather version. I'm usually between a 6 and a 6h, and I took a 6 (my usual Madewell size). I've got a little heel slipping with the suede pair, but it's not uncomfortable. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them These exceeded my expectations! I purchased the curry powder in my usual 6.5 and a 6 based on the reviews from those who sized up, but the 6 is way too small while the 6.5 is perfect (granted I am probably a larger 6.5 due to pregnancy). The color on the website is an accurate representation of the color in real life, not a super bright yellow. Both color and style are versatile and perfect for spring/summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable shoe I own I watched this sandal for a few weeks before I bought it. I am so happy with my purchase! The red color is bright, sharp and cheerful! The fit is absolutely perfect! This sandal is so comfortable I could wear it daily! Great shoe that is DEFINITELY worth the money!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love I was hesitant about these sandals, but decided to order them anyway and I'm so glad I did - they're adorable! They're comfortable and perfect for spring/summer! I normally wear a 6.5 and took my usual size in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs large but super comfortable I'm usually a 8.5 but sized down to 8. These sandals are beautiful and simple! The insole is also really soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for spring and summer I bought the curry powder. The color looks very similar online and in person. I am always, always a 7, but had to size down to 6 1/2 for these. Will be a staple for the warmer months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Summer Sandal This is a great sandal for wearing with jeans, dresses, whatever. I'm a true size 8 and I recommend sizing down a half size—the shoe is wearable in your regular size, but I can imagine the fit would be more comfortable if I had sized down. I got it in frosted willow and it's just a lovely color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shoe Bought these in the red and they're adorable. I have a somewhat wide foot and usually wear an 8 in Madewell shoes but found that I had to half-size up with these....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty but uncomfortable I originally ordered the Leila sandal in tan leather after trying on the suede in the store. I found the leather sandal to be incredibly tight and stiff and I didn't want to risk not being able to return it, so I exchanged for the suede version. Size-wise, they seem to be TTS (the next size up slipped off my heel), but 3rd strap is very tight across the top of my foot, and the back of the shoe rubbed blisters on the sides of my heels after about an hour of wear. I'm hoping they just require a longer break-in period because they're so cute! For reference, I typically wear a 7 to 7.5 (I ordered a 7), and my feet are slightly narrow with high arches.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So Cute! So Uncomfortable! I love the way these shoes look! They are super high quality and beautiful and I love the color. Within three hours of me wearing them just around the office though, I had sores in 6 different spots, including two raw and bloody spots. Not worth the discomfort!
