Rated 5 out of 5 by rizzoml frickin' beautiful
These are so lovely I can't take it! Excellent construction, sturdy soles and heels. Amazingly comfy too! They didn't even rub my feet anywhere the first day I wore them. I live in NYC and the city just eats up shoes so fast. It's frustrating. I feel like I have to replace my shoe wardrobe once a year. It gets crazy expensive. I can see myself wearing all the time but still having them for years they are made that well. So even though these are on the upper end of my shoe budget, they are so worth it. Oh, and they do come with laces unlike another reviewed cautioned :) I'm normally a size 8.5 and ordered one size up. I'm glad I did because the toe is bit narrower because of the pointed shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoelover1229 Great versatile boots!
I was somewhat hesitant to purchase these boots because I had already bought the Chelsea boot which is almost the same color but I'm definitely glad that I decided to make the purchase! The leather on these boots is a beautiful full grain leather that is nice and sturdy. The color is gorgeous and the fit and look is great! I have worn them with skinny jeans, cords, skirts and dresses and they look great with everything! Definitely a boot that I will be wearing for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by teanuh Love, love, love these boots
I splurged on these boots because I didn't have a lace-up pair and I frankly was feeling a little buyer's remorse when I placed the order. That was until they arrived in the mail and I put them on.
The leather on these boots is soft enough that they feel broken in but sturdy enough that I'm sure will last me for years and will certainly age well. Very well made.
They're versatile, so I expect to be able to dress them up and wear them with more casual outfits and they're pretty comfortable. I've worn them on long walks and I don't feel the least bit of discomfort. The heel is also fairly quiet compared to other boots I own, which is nice.
I normally wear a size 6 - 7 and I got a size 7 for these. I've bought boots from Madewell before and I usually go with a size 7 so I went with past experience. They're definitely a bit narrow which is perfect for me because I have very narrow feet but I can see myself wearing these with thin socks in warmer months and thicker in colder months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by emmiej my new go-to. just lovely.
I got these boots and am just in love with them. The lace up boot I've been searching for forever, and well worth the money. Heavy and solid, but not bulky-- the slight point on the toe makes it very streamlined and ladylike. An obviously well-crafted boot.
Just two things to consider if you decide to splurge:
- They're just a little tight in the toes. I'm normally a 9.5 or 10; ordered the 10 and am still breaking them in a bit in the toe region. Definitely size up if you're unsure.
- This may seem silly, but they didn't come with laces! I mean, when I spend this much money on a shoe, I sort of expect laces to come too, right? It was a little thing, but it was definitely a disappointing detail. Lame, Madewell.
