Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 105 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them! Very comfortable and really cute. Wearing them now for the first time and no break in period!!! February 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfy stylish flat I just began wearing this shoe last week and am pleased to find them super comfy! I am 7 months pregnant and was in search for a pair of flats that I can wear to lunch or to work, and these fit the bill. The shoe is true to size; I am usually a 5 1/2 and the size fit me perfectly. The pointy toe adds a little stylish edge to the shoe. Usually pointy toe shoes tend to hurt my feet after a few hours, but these shoes do not hurt at all! Thank you Madewell for designing such a cute and comfortable flat! Just love these. January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by These shoes are chic and comfy I love these shoes! They go with EVERYTHING. The sole is incredibly comfy as well, the most padding I've had in a flat. I highly recommend buying them, they are definitely worth the price. December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Flat Ever After my coworker gave me a pair that were too small for her, but too big for me & sticking inserts in them for months, I finally decided to order a pair that was true to my size. Best decision I decided to make & will forever be a faithful skimmer wearer. Not only are they super cute & can be worn with anything, they are beyond comfortable (once you break them in) I take public transit to work & wearing heels isnt the most sensible but these flats have finally made me feel okay about that. Thank you Madewell. September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great flat for everything! This is my second pair of the sidewalk skimmer flat in suede. I had bought this flat in a neutral color and now in black. Very comfortable and can wear them with everything. A simple stylish shoe to make you look polished and chic. September 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Favorite Shoe I bought these in the gossamer grey and they are my new favorite flats! They are flattering with every outfit, super comfortable, and true to size. I wear mine with everything, and they are a great deal if you buy them on sale. September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pair of flats The blue color was a lot brighter than expected but the shoes are comfortable and excellent quality. July 16, 2013
