The Leila Sandal in Leather

The Leila Sandal in Leather is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in a half size down! I sized down, as advised by the other reviewers, from an 8 to a 7.5. As soon as I put them on, I was in love with the style but had a sinking feeling that they were too tight. After 10 minutes, the leather loosened and they fit perfectly. My usual 8 would have been too large. Simple, elegant, and casual. Love these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New summer favorite I'm typically a size 7.5 and tried both 7 and 7.5 in store. Though the 7.5 fit just right, I ended up choosing the 7 because I was worried they would stretch a bit. They were definitely too tight for a week, but now they're just perfect, and I'm glad I went down a half size. The mini heel makes these dressier and more comfortable to walk in than most flats, and the color is a really beautiful cognac. Might want to weatherproof these as a water drop leaves a slight discoloration, but I think a shoe polish will bring them right back to life. A really classy style that I think will survive the trends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer staple! Might work better with narrow feet. A little nervous about sizing after reading the comments but went forward with a size 5 as opposed to my regular 5.5. A little snug but is loosening up nicely. Sturdy leather, will definitely be a summer staple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! But some notes I just bought these shoes yesterday and love them! The sales associate advised me to size down to make sure my heel wasn't flopping around, so I got a 7.5 instead of my normal 8. She said the straps would stretch, and they already have! These are super cute, comfy, and fit my somewhat wide toe box well. If you have a somewhat wide foot and are debating between these and the suede version, get these—the suede runs narrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome spring/summer shoe These shoes are so versatile in the caramel color, and I've gotten so many compliments. Comfortable out of the box to walk longer distances. These fit true to size for me - I normally wear a 6 in Madewell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy + comfortable Love these sandals! I'm usually not a sandal fan but love these. The style is classy but with a personality. This style will go with most everything in my wardrobe. They are super comfortable and didn't need any breaking in at all, I could wear them out of the box straight away. The fit is true to size. I'm usually a 7.5 and got the 7.5 in black and they fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these great for summer I'm thrilled with my purchase! I'm a 10, and these fit great. I also tend to have a narrow heal, and I don't slide out of the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found the perfect brown I purchased these in the saddle color and they were just the addition I needed to complete my summer shoe collection - a simple and classic look that I can wear for years to come. I have wide feet so these shoes are a bit narrow. I am hoping the leather will relax a bit, just like a similar Madewell pair that I purchased. As always, well made and good quality leather. I am pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe I love d'Orsay flats so when I saw these on sale I snapped a pair up a for myself & my daughter. They are so comfy & stylish---great with jeans, shorts, or a casual dress. My only complaint is that they were sold out in the tan color, as I'd have bought it in tan as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these sandals! These are the perfect summer sandals for both work and play. Professional and fun. They did rub a little bit on the heel the first couple times wearing them, as leather shoes do, but then were nicely broken in.
