The April Ankle-Wrap Flat

The April Ankle-Wrap Flat is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful addition to spring wardrobe This pair of flats must be the first pair of shoes from Madewell that doesn't cut up my feet (especially the heel/ankle area). It is sturdy yet soft and surprisingly has really decent cushioning. I usually wear size 9.5 with Madewell shoes but I found that it's a bit big. A 9 would have fit better so I recommend going down half a size. I decided to keep the 9.5 though because the ankle strap keeps my feet in securely. I love the brown/taupe one so much I'm even considering getting the blue one too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoes ever! I love this flats. Totally worth it. I can wear this all day long from running errands to a dinner party. I got this in Otter and it goes with most of the clothes I wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy flat I really like these comfy flats. I bought the 9 and whilst their a little bit big, it's okay because of the ties. I got the beige colour, which can be matched with pretty much everything.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from almost but not quite The color is a lovely French blue, a few shades darker than my screen led me to believe, but also more versatile and neutral. Great looks spoiled by cheap materials. The sole is very stiff and almost has the effect of a flip flop; no matter how I tied the laces the shoe felt clumsy. Also the vamp is pretty high and the suede is stiff. A near miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from new favorite shoes Have been swooning over these since they appeared at my local Madewell. With the current sale price, these shoes are such a steal. Picked up both colors -- they are comfortable, classic, and feminine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, feminine, pretty sandals It is easy to dress these sandals up or down. They are comfortable, and well-made. Very cute, and classic, definitely a great sandals for spring and summer. They can be worn with dress, skirt, shorts, jeans/above ankle inseam. The suede-leather straps are sturdy, but soft on the skin. Leather inside and out, which ensures quality throughout. I got them in Otter color, which is like sand/light beige, it is a neutral color, and can go with different colors. The blue color also look great, and would consider those as well. Got them on sale, that's the icing on the cake!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute, but not an everyday flat the style of this flat is super cute, they show the perfect amount of toe cleavage, the ties are flat and wide so they don't dig in, and both colors are absolutely beautiful. i have a wider foot and my normal 7.5 fit comfortably. i bought both colors on sale. i wore the otter colorway for about 6 hours or so walking throughout boston. the left shoe was perfect.. the ties stayed in place, my foot didn't move around at all while walking, comfort was great... not one problem. the right foot however was super funky. even though i tied it the same exact way as my left, my foot was just swimming all over the place while walking... it felt like my toes were going to slip out every time my foot left the ground. about 2 hours in, it completely rubbed the skin off of the top of my toes. i'll be wearing the blue around the house and see if i run into the same problem. if i do, i'll definitely be returning them. if not, that would only lead me to believe the otter's are defective.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful feminine shoes These shoes are beautiful and I should have listened about them running large! I love them and can wear them but they are big. Lucky for me they have ankle straps. They are final sale so not returnable so that's all I can say. Buy a 1/2 size smaller. I usually wear a 9 but in ballet flats I find a 1/2 size larger works better but not in this case. Beautiful shoes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and practical I am a wedding photographer, and was in need of some cute shoes that I could wear and move in all day. These were perfect!! So comfy, super cute, and no blisters! It took me a little experimentating with tying them, but other than that they're awesome.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fits really poorly I really wanted to love these shoes. They are a very cute style and color but the design and fit is soo funky. I agree with another reviewer that one of the shoes is actually bigger, by at least a half size, than the other. Also, i have pretty wide feet and these are wide even for me. It is really hard to tie the laces in a way to keep your foot secure, and the place where the ties come out of the shoe rubs my foot and its really uncomfortable. Don't get these if you have narrow feet is all I can say.
