Rated 5 out of 5 by The Perfect Flat Have five pairs of these flats they are the "perfect flat" because they fit your exact size in every version! So comfortable, quality is tremendous and the style will be on trend forever!! March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So chic I love these skimmers! They show just a tiny hint of toe cleavage and look wonderfully slim. The best part is that they look narrow but fit great! March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Staple Grabbed a pair on sale. So happy to find flats that cover up dreaded "toe cleavage." Comfortable, just like all my Madewell shoes. I will definitely buy another pair (or two). March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The perfect shoe Easy to transition between casual- and work-wear, high quality, and easy to break in. I love these shoes! March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable flats I LOVE my sidewalk skimmers! They fit perfectly, and the quality is great. They are my to go shoes any time of the year. February 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I've been searching for! I cannot tell you how difficult it is to find a pair of black pointed-toe leather flats. Why is it so hard? I looked EVERYWHERE and Madewell saved the day. I love them and I wear them all the time already. January 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, comfy, cute shoes Great flats, amazingly comfy, love the leather lining. Will go with anything. Happy with my purchase, just hope they hold up to wear! January 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great everyday flats I desperately needed a new pair of black flats and lucked into these on sale. They're extremely comfortable even on first wear (rare for leather flats in my experience). Definitely recommend! They do run large though - I ordered the 8.5 and had to exchange for the 8, which was still a teeny bit loose but fit. March 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by runs large, but stretches I tried these on in-store before purchasing, and had to size down from my normal 8.5 to a 7.5. The 7.5 was a bit tight on the right pinky toe, and rubed a bit on the heel, but after a few days of breaking in and stretching out they are perfect. The leather is stiffer and thicker than other flats I own, which is exactly what I was looking for as I walk 1-5 miles every day and thin leathers wear out very quickly. I would buy again in a different color, but these are great for simple, everyday black flats. February 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great basic but try to catch them on sale The fit was true to size - I usually wear a 7 or size up to 7.5 for extra width if the shoe is too narrow, but these fit perfectly (snug) in a size 7, despite my feet being on the wide side. They look great in person (and as pictured) and the quality is good. I was afraid the pointed toe would look a bit aggressive but it's subtle and created a nice line. So far I've only walked around the apartment in them a little bit (too much snow outside!) so I can't comment too much on comfort but I did expect them to feel a little more cushioned and I think they will take a bit of breaking in. Overall I'm very happy with them and think they will wear in nicely. I don't think I would pay full price for them but they were a great buy on sale. January 18, 2013
