The Frankie Chelsea Boot

The Frankie Chelsea Boot is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 108.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful almost daily boot These boots required barely any break-in and feel comfortable from the very start. The brown is really pretty and goes well with all the Madewell clothing I wear every day. Also a bonus that they are warm in the cold weather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect winter boots Love love love! I’ve been wanting to get these for a while I am so glad they were finally on sale! So stylish and go with everything especially skirts with tights! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great classic boot! I purchased the Frankie in brown last year, and regretted not grabbing the black. So happy to see they are back this year, so I ordered them. I got a 9 1/2, they run true to size overall, but I have a normal foot and find they are a bit tight in the width until you break them in (2 or 3 wearings). They are not uncomfortable during that time, and look great with everything. Can't recommend them enough---if you've been waffling, go ahead and order--you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY I have been bummed out since last year when I decided not to purchase these boots. I had been searching for a similar pair since and when these became available again, I immediately purchased them. After reading other reviews, I ordered a 7 1/2 and they fit like a dream! (I typically wear 8 in boots for Madewell) They are the perfect ankle height for all my jeans and the heel is perfect. I've worn them twice for an entire day and my feet were comfortable the whole time. I am so excited about these shoes. I purchased them in brown and now I want them in black. BUY THEM! You won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Chelsea Boots I've been almost buying a different pair of Chelsea boots from Madewell every year for the last four or five years. Finally gave these a shot when they went on sale around Christmas a few months ago and I'm so glad I did! These boots are the perfect heel height--so comfortable that I wear them at work sometimes 4 days in a week. As much as I wear these, they don't show it. The leather is barely creased at the toe and the elastic is as good as the day I bought them. They slip on so comfortably because the leather both inside and out is so soft. I really love the straight-sided heels to avoid the Western look that I'm not as fond of. I bought them in my usual Madewell size of 7 and they fit perfectly like all my other Madewell shoes do, even though I tend to be in between 7 and 7.5 in other sizes. They go with absolutely everything. I'd consider buying a second pair as back-ups, that's how great they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of boots Tried this pair at the store, but was really looking for unavailable color. They shipped to my home and I am in love with them since. They look good with pretty much everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the Ways This Boot is Perfect I've searched long and hard for the perfect short boot/ bootie. This is it, and here's why: - perfect heel height: give you lift, but very comfortable for walk in -beautiful shaped toe - simple design-- no weird, extraneous doodads - this is a personal preference of mine-- but I prefer to not see stitching around the toe - gorgeous perfect caramel-y color - goes with almost everything-- jeans, dresses, etc - loop at the ankle makes them easy to pull on - affordable Note on sizing: I usually wear a 9 but needed an 8 1/2 in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable These were comfortable out of the box, didn't need to break them in. I also like that they aren't a super high heels so I can wear them all day. They are a taller boot than I expected so some of my jeans need to be cuffed, but that's the only thing to note. They are true to Size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY THESE BABIES NOW I purchased these in desperate need of some black leather boots for an event but I was very unsure about the heel height. I absolutely never wear heels and the 2.5 inch heel on this boot turned me off. I ordered a different pair of black leather boots but just kept thinking about how perfect these are. Fast forward a few days and I had returned the first pair I ordered and bought these apprehensively. Well they just arrived and I have to say that they are the best boots I have ever put on my feet. They fit true size (I normally wear a 6 and that is what I ordered) and the heel doesn't even feel tall because of how secure your foot is in the shoe. I can walk in these boots better than I can in some of my 1.5 inch heeled shoes. The leather and wood is gorgeous. Seriously stop overthinking it and just order them- you won't regret it.
