The Thea Sandal in Nubuck

The Thea Sandal in Nubuck is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Summer go-to sandal! I love these and have been wearing them non-stop since I first tried them on at Madewell. Super comfy, color goes with just about anything. It's my summer staple! As a young mom with a toddler, I need easy slip on and off shoes and these fit the bill and look great! I'm between a 7-8 and 7.5 fit perfectly. The leather cut my back ankle at first, but after pinching it a few times, it confirms to the fit and are super comfy. I have another Madewell Sandal from last summer in calf-stripe and love it as well, but these have become my summer go-to for everyday ease. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and versatile I was hesitant to buy these at first b/c I thought they would be uncomfortable in the heel area. The store employee told me to give it a day to wear them in and then they would be super comfortable. I wore them one day for maybe an hour and the next time I wore them, they were perfect! My sister in law got the beige ones and it took her longer to wear in, but otherwise, no complaints! I found them to be TTS. If they go on sale, I may have to buy another pair. =)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very flattering & beautiful color I was a little apprehensive on buying these at first, because of the color. Now that I have them the color is my favorite part. Very pleased with my purchase! Had some rubbing issues but put a heel insert in. I would definitely say they are true to size

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty but NOT comfortable! Super cute, love the color, my only discrepancy with this sandal is the comfort, unfortunately the first night I wore them, I went to a show and ended up with really bad blisters on both of my ankles. I had to wear several bandaids for almost a week, and am too scared to wear them now without bandaids, just in case. The color is super cute, and they go with a lot of different outfits, if only they were more comfy, they'd be perfect! Good luck!
