The Thea Sandal

The Thea Sandal is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-To Shoe I don't normally spend this much on shoes, but I knew these were well made and a timeless stye that I could wear for years. As many other reviewers have mentioned, you will have to break them in before they are super comfortable. I got really bad blisters the first time I wore them, but I normally do with all flats. I would recommend wearing bandaids or blister guards the first few times you wear them. I was a little unsure if they were worth it, but I have worn them almost everyday since I bought them a couple of weeks ago. They go with everything! I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and Minimalist Lovely sandals - great for summer. I've been looking for just this style for years and am so happy to have found it. Needs a little time to break in the leather, but quite comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Sandal I just bought this shoe three days ago and have already broken it in. The leather is supple and molds to your foot easily. The heel has little elastic bands in the back that keep the shoe on your foot. One of the bands rubs a little bit on my heel but I got some liquid bandage, good for preventing blisters, from the drug store to put on my heel and I'm having no trouble now. I really like these shoes and I'm going to order them in the striped canvas color as well. I usually wear a 7- 7 1/2 an I went with the 7 1/2 because my toes were a little close to the edge. Really pretty sandal. Very classy. Goes with a lot of stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new go to..... Love the D'orsay style of this flat! Fits well and looks even better in person. I received tons of compliments the first time I wore them. Great with dresses or skinny jeans!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So flattering! Runs about a half size large and if it's too big, they will just fall off all the time! Luckily, tried it on in store and did not have this problem. Looks great, can be dressed up or down. Be careful the first time you wear them, needs to be broken into a little bit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Look great/A bit uncomfortable I love how these look on my feet! BUT the back black part takes a while to break in and I keep getting blisters! Also, the front is stretching a bit so make sure they are a snug fit when you buy them. The return policy is 7 days after the shipping date so I only had 2 days to make the return so be sure you like them in the store first!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first shoe purchase at Madewell These are my new summer them. I was a little hesitant but it was a perfect buy! I may need to purchase a 2nd pair so i have them for next summer too. These are going to be worn to death over the next few months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great look; tough to break in I love the two-tone look of these sandals. The front strap is very comfortable but the heel rubbed and gave me major blisters the first day I wore them. Definitely be prepared with bandages for your heels and a change of shoes when you are still breaking them in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go-to summer sandal They are simple, comfortable, and will be my go-to sandal this summer. Rubbed a bit on the back of my heel but I think they just need to be broken in a bit and will be fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful timeless sandal I loved these the second I saw them and ordered on a whim. Glad that I sized down to a 9 instead of my usual 9.5 as they felt a little big. Band around foot felt loose on my narrow feet but very comfortable to walk in. I was so happy to have them to wear out last weekend! Very stylish yet understated as well. I love the two tone color! Very happy with my purchase!
