The Leila Sandal in Leather

The Leila Sandal in Leather is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in a half size down! I sized down, as advised by the other reviewers, from an 8 to a 7.5. As soon as I put them on, I was in love with the style but had a sinking feeling that they were too tight. After 10 minutes, the leather loosened and they fit perfectly. My usual 8 would have been too large. Simple, elegant, and casual. Love these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New summer favorite I'm typically a size 7.5 and tried both 7 and 7.5 in store. Though the 7.5 fit just right, I ended up choosing the 7 because I was worried they would stretch a bit. They were definitely too tight for a week, but now they're just perfect, and I'm glad I went down a half size. The mini heel makes these dressier and more comfortable to walk in than most flats, and the color is a really beautiful cognac. Might want to weatherproof these as a water drop leaves a slight discoloration, but I think a shoe polish will bring them right back to life. A really classy style that I think will survive the trends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! But some notes I just bought these shoes yesterday and love them! The sales associate advised me to size down to make sure my heel wasn't flopping around, so I got a 7.5 instead of my normal 8. She said the straps would stretch, and they already have! These are super cute, comfy, and fit my somewhat wide toe box well. If you have a somewhat wide foot and are debating between these and the suede version, get these—the suede runs narrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome spring/summer shoe These shoes are so versatile in the caramel color, and I've gotten so many compliments. Comfortable out of the box to walk longer distances. These fit true to size for me - I normally wear a 6 in Madewell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Large Thankfully I tried this one one in the store.. I'm usually a 10 in Madewell / j crew shoes. This sandal in a 10 was way too big, sized down to a 9, great fit. I have narrow feet though, i don't think this would work for someone with a wider foot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking and very versatile. Can wear these sandals with everything, but too wide in the heel. I love them so much and will keep them, hoping that I can find some heel grips to make them fit better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ouch, ouch, ouch These are so cute but extremely painful. My heels were bloodied and blistered after wearing them for only 2-3 hours. Unfortunately the store wouldn't take them back after use... what a waste.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great design, poor quality and fit I've been eyeing these shoes for awhile and was glad to see them on sale. Given the reviews, I decided to order a 5.5 and a 6. I'm a true 5.5 but usually wear a size 6 with flats with no issues. I received these today and oh boy, not good. The 5.5 was tight and the back half is ridiculously stuff. If feels like you're wedged between rocks. The size 6 fit me a bit better but barely. The spacing between the straps were off and my pinky toe was basically flapping around uncomfortably. Needless to say, I'm returning these. Such a bummer...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adorable but fit is all off I wear an 8.5 for ever. I went down to a 7!! and then it finally stayed on my foot-heel area slipped off in every size down to a 7 from 8.5. I wanted to get them because they are adorable, feminine but fit is totally off. Madewell fix these and try again because many were looking at them but couldnt make them fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adorable but not forgiving Loved the look of this sandal online and in real life, but it's an awkward fit. I found the shoe simultaneously too long and too narrow for my foot – there was a gap between my heel and the back of the shoe and my toes didn't reach the end, but I'm pretty sure if I went down half a size it'd be too tight width-wise. Wish there were a wide size.
