The Archive Boot

The Archive Boot is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Classic Boot I was looking for a basic flat boot. Fortunately, this boot was on sale and in my size. It goes with everything. The material is very soft. I like the fact that there are no embellishments - it makes the boot look more expensive than it is! I am usually at 6.5 and I found the boot to be true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable boots I bought my first pair of these boots several years ago. I wear them everyday through all types of weather. They are the most comfortable boots I ever owned. As they were getting worn, I decided to buy another pair. I read the reviews, and decided to buy a half size smaller than my usual size as most reviews stated they run big. Unfortunately, they are too small and I should have went with my regular size, a size 8. I bought them as a final sale so can not return them. Despite this, I would recommend these boots to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute boot, cute color and great height! 8.5 fit just right, I would not recommend wearing with heavy socks though, but overall a cute boot, color and the height is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd time purchasing, still so good! I first bought the Archive boots in brown in 2012 and decided it was time for a new pair - black this time! - a few weeks ago. The leather is butter soft, and the boots are very high quality. My first pair is still alive and kicking, and these are a great new addition to my wardrobe; I'm so glad to have them (again)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repeat Customer I'm very particular when it comes to boots. I took a chance on these four years ago. I wore them frequently in the rain, snow, and through salty sidewalks, and they held up like a charm. Exceeding my expectations, I wanted to invest in a second pair and was ecstatic when they were re-released. These are simplistic, yet classic; lightweight, yet durable. For me, they are worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter boot! They are comfortable, run true to size, and I love the color of the brown! They will take a bit of breaking in. The inner heal rubs a little...didn't quite give me blisters, but would reco wearing once or twice before you walk around the whole city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resized from prior years, but still great! I bought these in brown 3-4 years ago and black last year. I am normally a 7 but bought a 6.5 with both these purchases. After extensive wear, I ordered new brown ones this year. Madewell has definitely re-sized these from years prior. I originally ordered the 6.5 but had to send back for a 7. When comparing the boots to my old pairs, there is a noticeable change in the sizing. Just a tip if you are ordering based on prior purchases of these boots. They now run TTS. But, everything else is exactly the same. I LOVE these boots - the shaft is thinner than most boots this style which work well for my skinny legs. These are a timeless style and well worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features Awesome boot for what I paid. At full retail, I would have been disappointed. Good fit , and I don't feel that the ankles are too baggy like some reviewers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect silhouette! I did not own the previous version of this boot so I cannot speak to the change in quality that others mentioned in reviews. HOWEVER, I can say that I absolutely love the weight, appearance and silhouette of this boot and am excited to wear them all fall & winter!!
