As much as we hate to say it, in a few weeks it’ll be time to put away your Fashion Tevas and start thinking about closing up the toes for the season. So it’s helpful that right now Madewell is having a sale wherein a slew of its more classic shoes (including oxfords, rain boots, and loafers) are 20 percent off. These Reid ballet flats, a Madewell best-seller, have dozens of excellent reviews, most of which note just how extremely comfortable they are (and that they don’t need to be broken in). As one happy customer recently wrote: “I’m on my feet a ton and these shoes are hands down the comfiest ballet flats I have ever worn.” And another: “I can’t begin to describe how many black flats I have tried, only to find them uncomfortable. These shoes were immediately comfortable.”
