The Chelsea Rain Boot

The Chelsea Rain Boot is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 58.
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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect alternative to tall rain boots It's black. It's matte. It's style enough to wear with everything. perfect for those days that it's not raining hard enough for tall rainboots. They only come in whole sizes, so I assumed I probably had to size up. I'm typically a a half size and I sized up. It's a tad bit bigger than I would like, but nothing some thicker socks could fix. Also, it might just feel big because they are rain boots and they don't hug my feet like normal shoes would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These boots are the best. They look so chic, but function like durable rain boots. Must-buy for rainy days! I am a true 8.5 and ended up going with the 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! I got these the other day at the store kind of as an impulse buy, but I'm really happy with them! They're perfect for walking the dog and easy to slip in and out of. Just make sure you wear them with high-ish socks, because the first time I wore them I didn't, and got blisters on my ankles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, but they run large I love the look of the Chelsea Boot, so these rain boots are very cute. I am a 8.5-9, usually an 8.5 in Madewell shoes, and I ordered a size 8. They are still a bit large, but thicker socks should help with that. The toe was a little wider/rounder that I was expecting, but overall I'm happy with them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ...mmm... just ok. they *do* look sweet on. they come off as a little bootie, way more than a rain boot. my primary issue with them is that no matter what kind of sock i wear them with, they slip off my heels.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fit problem I desperately wanted to keep these. Shoes only came in whole sizes so I bought both (6/7). I'm a 6.5. Whole sizing did not work for me and feet kept popping out in the back as I walked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from too wide around ankle It Should be tapered and higher on the ankle. Boot looks very attractive but fits poorly. Too wide and too low around the ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True quality. It has rained in VA for the past week straight and I have gotten to pull these beauties out. I bought them because I hated wearing the tall rain boots because I found them to be uncomfortable and clunky. These are the perfect alternative. They are made well (literally) and look wonderful. They are a little big in the heel but I usually wear them with thicker socks anyways. I also bought these because of the wider opening by the ankle because I wanted some breathing room. Overall, I have zero regrets.
