I tried on the leopard sidewalk skimmers from Madewell a while back, but returned them. I had a leopard hankering and re-ordered them again during the last regular price promotion. I still don’t know if I’m keeping them since these casual Keds Champion Laceless in Leopard are also particularly alluring (and you can get 20% off at Piperlime with code MERRYDAY through today) and I don’t know if I like calfhair footwear.
Regardless, Observation #1: the skimmers are significantly cheaper at Shopbop than Madewell at full price:
Not to say you should buy from either retailer, without considering the current promotions. Just sayin’.
Observation #2: There are a bunch of skimmers already on sale, and are pretty tempting with another 30% off. I ordered a few to try. I remember the leopard ones being true to size for me (I have wide feet), but some have said they run 1/2 size big.
- Sidewalk skimmer in suede. $53ish, minus black which is not on sale.
- Sidewalk skimmer in patent leather. $56ish. Nude patent! Black patent!
- Sidewalk skimmer in blue/green snakeskin. $63.
