Rated 5 out of 5 by Accessoriesaremything European Quality
These are truly beautiful boots...leather throughout and made in Italy. Hard to find at this price point. For ladies needing a somewhat narrower shaft this boot fits the bill. Also, I think they run true to size and not large as some reviewers stated, but everyone is different. Thank you, Madewell, for this outstanding product. I am going to order them in another color if they are available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sara1 Best boot I've ever owned!
I just received these boots in the mail today and love them! I originally ordered them in the mahogany color and ended up canceling that order to get them in the distressed leather and am so happy I did! They are very smooth on the inside, unlike my other pairs of boots, and are extremely comfortable. I had to order them in a half size smaller than my usual size because they seem to run big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andi75 Great everyday boot
The online image is exactly the color and distressed look of these gorgeous boots. I am very happy with my purchase, but I will say I had some issues with the sizing. I originally ordered my actual size, 8.5. (The advice Madewell lists is to order down a half size for a true fit). Well, the 8.5 was way too tight on the calf, and it was also uncomfortably snug on my foot. I returned them, and because I loved the boot so much, ordered a whole size up to see if this would help. I stuck with the 9.5, and believe it or not, they fit my foot better and while the calf is still a tiny bit tighter than I would prefer, they work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeautyB Love them! But order a half size up!
I just got mine in the mail yesterday and I love them! However, I would recommend ordering a half size up. I ordered mine in a 9H (my normal size) but the top of the boot is really tight since its made out of all leather and doesn't stretch that much. So if you have big calves take note of this! I wanted to exchange them but the size 10 in all sold-out so I'll have to keep this size a make due with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DemBoots Wide Around the Calf
I was excited to receive these boots because they are so beautiful. Unfortunately, when I am wearing leggings, jeggings, or skinny jeans the boots are gaping open at the top. I am an athlete and do not consider my muscular calves especially slender. When I pull the boot outward at the top so that the back rests against my leg, I can measure a horizontal space of 1.5" from my shin to the boot. On the other hand, this extra space allows me to wear Madewell Rail Straight jeans tucked into the boot with only a little gaping, but, overall, I'm disappointed as I was looking for something more sleek.

Rated 2 out of 5 by alex1234 very tight
I bought these boots last year in a different color and ordered a half size smaller like it says to do. They were too tight in the foot and I could only fit my calves in if I was only wearing tights. I have average size calves (I'm a size 4 pant). I had to send them back and order my true size in extended calf which I have never had to do for any other boots. They are still pretty tight on my calves and as a result I can only wear very tight pants with them. I ended up having to get them stretched out at a cobbler. Unless you have very thin stick-like legs, I wouldn't recommend getting these boots.
