Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary Boot I love these boots! They are comfortable, unique and beautiful. The leather is great quality and the zipper detail on the back is a great touch. They are true to size for me. Thanks Madewell for another great boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless This was love at first sight. The color is pecan but they are actually two-toned which makes them very unique. I normally wear an 8, but the sales associate encouraged me to try the 7.5 on because other customers had stated they ran large and I'm happy I listened to her. They were a tad bit stiff at first wear but soften up quickly and are very comfortable once broken in. I get numerous compliments and inquiries as to where I bought them. As one reviewer said; they have a "Beatles" type style to them which in my opinion makes them timeless. The leather is a very nice quality and the workmanship wasn't compromised as they are, like the store name: MADEWELL :-). They are an all around great pair of boots and I am extremely pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, comfortable, versatile boot These boots are actually 2 toned, which is not obvious in the photo. The front is a lighter chestnut brown than the back. I like the contrast but it was a surprise. Very comfortable from first putting on. No complaints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sleek ankle boot - runs large! I adore these boots! They're simple, clean, sophisticated, and offer the perfect "Parisian chic" vibe. They're perfect for the winter and they're my new favorite shoe! They do run very large, though! I'm always an 8-8.5 and I took a 7.5 in these. I've NEVER fit a 7.5! When I first put on the 7.5, they were extremely snug. They were so tight and uncomfortable I was sure they were too small. The sales lady talked me into them, as the size 8 made my heel slip, and I bought them apprehensively. (They were just too perfect!) I came home and wore them around the house with extremely thick fuzzy socks and after an hour, they fit perfectly! Now I can wear them out with normal socks and they're the perfect fit! Definitely recommend! Size down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great high-quality, casual boots Love these boots! They're super comfortable considering they're made of leather and are pretty narrow, and I've gotten tons of compliments on them so far. I want to wear them every day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice boots I got these boots 2 weeks ago and they look great. At first, they fit a bit rough but after wearing them a few times, they are fine. They look great and are good quality. i just hope the comfort level is a little better. I have flat feet so my feet tend to be a little more sensitive than the average persons. I have gotten great compliments on my booties. Highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots I've been looking for flat black boots to replace a well-loved pair, and these are it! Boots are well-made and the leather is beautiful. What some reviewers have described as two-tone leather is actually two different textures: the front or foot of the boot is tumbled leather while the back is smooth. The color is uniform throughout so there is no two-tone effect. The zipper and tab closure is an interesting touch. I normally wear an 8.5 or 9, and based on reviews that these run a bit large ordered the 8.5. Fit is perfect with lightweight socks. Leather lining is luxurious. Will wear these for years. Another Madewell home run!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots, but other reviewers are not exaggerating about them running big! I got these boots in pecan on sale and then with an additional 30% off, and they would be well worth full price! Other reviewers have commented on the two toned nature of the boots, so I wasn't surprised when they arrived, and I think they look great, it gives them more visual interest than if it was all one colour, but the difference is not so dramatic that it looks like you're trying too hard to be different. As other reviewers have mentioned, these definitely run large. I have size 11 feet, and big size 11 feet at that. Madewell 11s usually fit me but do need to stretch out a bit to be really comfortable. Not the case with these, they're even a bit big for me. Even I could probably have gone down a half size. As it is, I can wear my orthotics and thick socks, and still have a tiny bit of space. I don't mind though, just means I can wear them deeper into the cold weather. Super comfortable, no blisters whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this boot is to die i got these on sale and one day only 40% off on top of that... not too shabby. however, they are amazing and would be worth the full price. i do find they run a bit big - that is, i normally wear a 9.5 and i ordered a 9 according to reviews. whether that is running big or running small i can never decide. go only one half size down. not a full size, that would be too much. but they are super comfy, i have worn them three times and not one blister or rub. they are cute with skinny jeans or tights. they can look more fancy or more casual. and i have had no problem with the zipper or the stud closure. LOVE!!!
