The Chelsea Rain Boot

The Chelsea Rain Boot is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possibly my favorite Madewell purchase ever! (which is saying a lot....) I love these boots. I randomly bought them when they were on super sale, without very high expectations, and I'm so glad I did! I am a size 7.5 and originally bought a size up, but ended up exchanging for a size 7 and they fit perfectly. I wore them in (our one) NC snow storm this past winter and they were durable and comfortable. I always wear them on rainy days and my feet feel stylish and dry :) I love the low boot and matte finish. I do have to remember to wear higher/thicker socks so the top of the boot doesn't rub my ankle/calf, but it's worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect boot I bought these because I needed all-weather slip-on shoes to walk the dog. Just got these the other day and wore them on a walk. I LOVE THESE!! The profile/look is similar to a spendy Australian brand of boots that I coveted, but these are so much better! They feel substantial, thick sole, thick rubber. There's a surprising amount of arch support/cushioning. They don't look as "rain boot" -ish as they do in the pictures. They just look like great black ankle boots. I normally wear 6.5, but I got the 6 and they're perfect. They're snug (in a good way) across the arch/middle of my foot, but plenty of toe wiggle room. My heels do slide up, but it doesn't bother me, since the snug fit on my arch keeps my foot in place. The black matte can pass for leather; these are the simple black ankle boots I've been looking for FOREVER. Just bought a second pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Shoe/Boot I bought these rain boots last week - super fast shipping - and I have worn them every day since. It hasn't rained once. These are my new favorite shoe. They fit perfectly, I am usually a 9.5/10 and I have a wide foot. I purchased a 10 in black. These are more comfortable than either of the more expensive brands I own. They slide on and off easily. They go with everything. Although they are rubber, they kind of look leather and so I have been wearing. Out and to work. You can really dress them up or down. I purchased these on sale and the price was just as good as the product. Madewell, you're killin' it lately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical yet stylish I live in Florida and own a pair of the more expensive rubber boot brand in short, but it is hard for me to walk because the calves of the short boot do not allow me to bend my legs in any way, hence impractical. The Chelsea on the other hand, is very easy to walk in, and it won't look overkill when the rain stops. It looks more like a leather bootie than rain boot. The price is also reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best ankle rain boot initially i thought these were brown, but after receiving them the deep burgundy color didnt even bother me. the color was perfecttttt ! they are super comfy and does NOT do that stupid bendy thing most rain boots do. in addition the rubber is really thick so i know ill be having these for while !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Rain Book This boot is great, it's way sturdier than I thought it would be (sometimes rain boots are pretty lightweight plastic), and it's not overly shinny like many rain boots. I'm a big fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boot i'm usually an 8.5 but the 8 is just right. perfect for when it's wet or rainy but no need for knee high boots. very comfortable and super cute

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They don't look like rainboots! I purchased these to get me through slushy winters here in Columbus. The other reviews said they run slightly large and I'm typically right in between 8 and 8 1/2 and an 8 fits perfect- with enough room for some camp socks. They're not too shiny and I plan on wearing them as regular Chelsea boots all winter! They're also super grippy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So great! I can't even believe these went on sale! I saw them in the store and resisted because I have two pairs of hunters already. But the sale price got me and they are awesome and worth every penny at the regular price. Unfortunately the green was sold out by the time I got online. But if they come back and green I'm going to snag them up at regular price if I have to. The black matte are so good! So cute and comfy! Way better than both my tall or mid Hunter. Easy to get on and off super stylish so cute ! I love the lining . Don't even really have to wear a sock. But you totally can. I'm usually a size 8 or 8 1/2. I wear at eight in the Billy Boot. 8.5 in vans and took these in a nine. They are perfect. room but I like to have that in my boots especially if I'm just going to be sloshing around in them. But they don't look messy by any means. By the and took these in a nine. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for practical wear I purchased these originally because I was looking for a convenient slip-on boot that I could wear in rain or snow. I found these on Madewell online and immediately fell in love! When they arrived I was happy to see the rubber texture was a matte black color and was not shiny like similar styles made by other brands. I usually wear a size 8.5 so I purchased these in a size 9. They fit true to size for a 9, so they are a little large on me but perfect with thick socks to wear when it's cold. I have not had the chance to test these in the snow, but they did perform well in the rain. I was also very please with the quality and would be thrilled to purchase the same pair in another color, such as forest green or merlot.
