Do you own a pair of Madewell’s Sightseer sandals? If you do, you might want to toss them in the garbage. Madewell has recalled more than 50,000 pairs of Sightseer-style sandals that were manufactured in Brazil and sold within the last six months. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there have been eight reports of “metal shanks dislodging and breaking through the bottom of the outsole.”

No injuries have been reported thus far. The recall applies to sandals sold at Madewell stores, online at and online at from February to July, ranging from $60 to $80. A total of 10 Sightseer styles has been recalled:
