The Boardwalk Crisscross Sandal

The Boardwalk Crisscross Sandal is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Classic Another great, classic summer sandal to complete any outfit. I love these sandals because they're super simple and minimal - no fuss of frills. I also love the design of the front ankle strap. As a teacher, I am always looking for cute sandals that won't flop around and will stay secure and comfortable as I am on my feet, moving around all day long. I am always between 7.5 and 8. I went with an 8 on these because the length on the 7.5 seemed a little too exact and just a tad short for me. I have a medium-wide foot, and the 8s fit perfectly on length and width. It goes without saying that the quality of these sandals are top notch. Yes, they're flat and don't offer arch support, but the sole of the sandal is good. I've tried on other flat sandals from different brands where I felt like I could feel every bump on the ground beneath me. Not these. These are lovely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great simple sandle! I bought these in both black and brown and have been wearing them every day. They definitely run true to size, and if you're in between (I'm between 8.5 and 9 usually) go with the larger size. My only concern is that I had a very similar pair from Madewell last year that fell apart by the end of the summer - we'll see how these hold up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Sandal I love, LOVE these sandals. They are very comfortable and required virtually no breaking in. They were a little snug the first day, but the leather stretched out perfectly. I wear between an 8 and 8.5 and these fit more like an 8. If you're in between sizes, going up a half size might be a good idea. Overall I am very pleased and look forward to wearing these for many summers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! Love these sandals! I got them in the English saddle color and they fit true to size on me in an 8. I sometimes size up to 8.5 for width but did not need to do that in this sandal. They look adorable with shorts, boyfriend jeans and casual skirts and dresses. I am considering getting the black pair as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic summer sandal Good summer sandal. Runs slightly small, but is comfortable for the most part. However, the straps can cause some rubbing/blisters on the toes, since the fit is a little snug.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute sandals when on sale I wouldn't pay full price for these. They run slightly narrow and short(i have narrow feet and felt that the footbed barely covered the bottom of my foot, and my toes were at the end in my typical size, which has never been an issue. I find that overall Madewell shoes are NOT consistent at all in sizing. I am also skeptical of the quality. They look like they are pretty flimsy, and the materials are not great quality. I got them on sale, and bought the gold and tan, I think they are great colors, and look really cute on. They will go with many outfits, but again, I don't think I will wear them all the time just because I am afraid they will fall apart!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sooooo disappointed..... I ordered the yellow ones thinking they would be a bright pop of colour only to discover that they were more of a light tan. Not a good first impression. Overall they're just meh sandals. No cushioning, just flat and with wider feet they just spread. Not a cute look. I'm sure they would look great with someone whose feet are not wide but these are going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smitten...until they got damp I spent all summer searching for a great pair of simple black sandals, so when these went on sale, I pouced. The fit took a bit to get used to but they soon became a staple of my wardrobe. Fast forward several weeks of nearly constant wear, and they're still staining my feet black. When I got caught in the NYC rain last night, the entire bottoms of my feet got stained and it's not coming off! Major bummer because they're definitely broken in.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute Shoe, Very Poor Quality/Quality Control Out of the box I absolutely loved these shoes. However, upon closer inspection, I noticed chipping on the sides of the soles. Decided to overlook that since they were so cute but then after wearing the sandals TWICE, I noticed that only my right foot would hurt and that I had to wear the ankle straps in different holes. I thought that was weird so I inspected the shoes thoroughly and found that the ankle strap is sewn much closed to the footpad on the right shoe. This is probably the reason my right foot hurts after wearing them. Super cute shoe but EXTREMELY poor quality, especially for the price. My sister has a similar pair from somewhere else that were half the price and don't have these issues. Yet another show of decreased quality with the same high price tag! Very sad about this since now I'm stuck with them because it took me 2 wears to figure this out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The color comes off I really like this shoes, but the color comes off to my feet. I can't wear this shoes the whole day or in a rainy day. I really don't know why Madewell still sell this shoes when its color comes off. I have to use body wash, makeup remover and facial oil together to clean up the color on my feet. I brought a pair of black, won't recommend.
