Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Flats These are my FAVORITE flats! They have the perfect almond toe and shows just enough toe cleavage. They do need some breaking in, but once you get over that stage they're the best. Comfortable and go with everything! I have wide feet so I sized up a half size which felt perfect in the beginning, but as they broke in they actually got to be too big. I've repurchased these in my true size and they're perfect after a few wears. I'm so glad they brought these back! Please bring back the holepunch sidewalk skimmers next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Shoes Ever Please get more of these, Madewell! These are my favorite shoes ever and they seem to be always out of stock. I need new ones! And I'd get a pair in each new color you get :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical and comfortable This is a great shoe! They are immediately comfortable and ready to wear. They run true to size and look great with a variety of outfits. I would definitely recommend this product, especially for the price! The only thing I would mention is that a lot of "toe cleavage" shows with these shoes on my feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and classic These are great little flats (very Audrey Hepburn), I'm guessing once I've broken them in they'll be much more comfortable. However, they have proven to be tough to break in... They fit true to size !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite flats! I love the comfort and style of these shoes but, more than anything, I am amazed by how durable they are! I did use a protective spray on the outside of the shoe to protect the suede from rain/dirt/etc but since that time they have been worn in dirt/rain/sand and over so many irregular surfaces and they have been worn for hours and hours without showing any signs of wear! I have a lot of flats and these are the only ones that have endured my abuse with such ease. I highly recommend this shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, it's back! I've worn out one pair of these (don't take a long walk in the rain!) and am halfway through another. They are the best black flats I've seen, with just the right amount of pointy-ness. Just the perfect shoe design, so flattering. I'm between sizes . . . but more comfortable going up a half size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plain, Simple and Chic These are my go to plain flats! Like other flats that I get from Madewell, I get them 1/2 size bigger so I don't have to break them in or get any blisters. This will be a classic pair that I will keep for a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite flats! These flats are by far, my favorite! I even gave them as birthday presents to my friends and they were so happy, too! I love them so much because they are so comfortable, versatile and made very well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and super cute As someone with foot issues, I was worried about spending this much on a pair of flats. I typically wear boots because my feet crave comfort. When these flats came in the mail I was SO pleased with them. First, they fit perfectly true to size and they haven't stretched at all. I have narrow feet and I have had issues in the past with flats slipping off when I walk. These are made very well and come up high enough at the back of the heels that they do NOT slip off. Because of this and the sturdy soles they are comfy enough to wear on hard city streets and sidewalks. I wear them all the time with tights and a skirt. I bought a suede protecting spray and sprayed them before wearing them and also after they get wet. They DID take a couple wears to break in but it wasn't terrible by any means... Just bring a few bandaids in your purse the first couple times you wear them. Once they're broken in, they're perfect!! They seem like they will last a long, long time. Love.
