The Archive Boot with Extended Calf

The Archive Boot with Extended Calf is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Beautiful This is a beautiful boot. I love that there are no metal embellishments. A word about the size. I am 5'7 and my calf is 15.5" at its widest part. I have two pairs of Madewell skimmers in 8.5. I tried on the regular calf boots in the store and could not get them all the way up. Then I ordered the 8.5 and the 9 in extended calf online. The calf was still a little tight, but I was able to wear them over leggings. I ended up keeping the 8.5s, because they fit my foot better. Things have stretched out (in a good way) after 2 weeks of wear. My advise: If your calves are 15" or bigger, get the extended calf. If you already own a pair of Madewell shoes, order the boots in the same size. They are somewhat narrow, so unless you have a narrow foot, you should order these boots in your normal shoe size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality boot at a fair price. Great looking classic boot. The leather quality is outstanding for the money. Comfortable right away. My wife did not hesitate to throw them on and wear them all day the first day she had them. SCORE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless! I have had these boots for about a year now and wear them almost everyday in the winter/fall. They are still in great condition and look good with everything! The leather is great quality as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended! Buying boots is always a pain for me because I have big calf muscles. However, this boot with extended calf just solved my problem. Ordering half size up would be a great help if you worry about the calf size. The quality is excellent. I just love these boots, can't wait for the cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A staple item for my wardrobe These boots are kind of perfect! The quality of the materials, the craftsmanship, the texture and color of the leather, the sizing... everything is on point. I have normal calves (Shoe Size 8, 5'8, 140lbs) and the calf of this boot has plenty of space for my legs and my skinny jeans/tights/legwarmers ect. In fact, without jeans or legwarmers, there is a noticeable gap between my leg and the boot. These boots are an excellent staple piece for my wardrobe and will (hopefully) be with me for years. I highly recommend purchasing them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extended Calf runs extremely small It is unfortunate that this boot is not a true Extended Calf since it is a classic boot that is so nicely made. I was very disappointed that they did not fit, thought I finally was going to find a boot that worked for my calves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot! Runs small. This is a great boot but it DOES run small. I usually wear a 7 1/2-8 and the 7 1/2 was way too big. I exchanged it for a 7 and that fit me perfectly. I'm 5' 5", 120 lbs and I had to get the extended calf... I have a feeling not many people can fit the regular calf size. I will say that the first pair I got had more texture in the leather and the second pair was much more buttery and smooth—the leather will vary from boot to boot. I'm much happier with my second pair than the first. Also, I used Pay Pal to purchase these and when I exchanged them, I found out that Madewell can't exchange items using Pay Pal. So my money was refunded and I had to call customer service to re-order. Thankfully they still gave me the original price—I got them on sale. The site doesn't say anything about paying with Pay Pal so just be aware that exchanges can't be made if you pay with that method.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice boots These boots are not cheap, but they definitely look and feel expensive. The leather is really nice. They are a classic stye and I hope they last for many years. I sometimes have trouble fitting into regular boots in the calf area, and the extended calf fits me perfect. The foot part of the boot fits true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome riding boot This boot is the perfect pull on riding boot! I hunted high and low to find this. Fit is great. Slightly snug at first but stretches nicely. I have average athletic calves and usually find boots fit way too snug.... this one is perfect! Great quality, look, feel and fit. Super comfortable, I wear them almost everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd Pair I bought these in the brown and liked them so much I came back for the black. The measurements given in the description are spot on. I am 5' tall, 100 lbs, but a runner, so have athletic calves and these are great over jeans and leggings. Nice quality leather. Should have these for years.
