The Frankie Chelsea Boot

The Frankie Chelsea Boot is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the Ways This Boot is Perfect I've searched long and hard for the perfect short boot/ bootie. This is it, and here's why: - perfect heel height: give you lift, but very comfortable for walk in -beautiful shaped toe - simple design-- no weird, extraneous doodads - this is a personal preference of mine-- but I prefer to not see stitching around the toe - gorgeous perfect caramel-y color - goes with almost everything-- jeans, dresses, etc - loop at the ankle makes them easy to pull on - affordable Note on sizing: I usually wear a 9 but needed an 8 1/2 in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable These were comfortable out of the box, didn't need to break them in. I also like that they aren't a super high heels so I can wear them all day. They are a taller boot than I expected so some of my jeans need to be cuffed, but that's the only thing to note. They are true to Size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY THESE BABIES NOW I purchased these in desperate need of some black leather boots for an event but I was very unsure about the heel height. I absolutely never wear heels and the 2.5 inch heel on this boot turned me off. I ordered a different pair of black leather boots but just kept thinking about how perfect these are. Fast forward a few days and I had returned the first pair I ordered and bought these apprehensively. Well they just arrived and I have to say that they are the best boots I have ever put on my feet. They fit true size (I normally wear a 6 and that is what I ordered) and the heel doesn't even feel tall because of how secure your foot is in the shoe. I can walk in these boots better than I can in some of my 1.5 inch heeled shoes. The leather and wood is gorgeous. Seriously stop overthinking it and just order them- you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE everything about this boot! The perfect boot! Comfortable to walk in, can dress up or down! Very tempted to buy a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fall boot I bought these in both colors... finding shoes is so hard for me so when I find something good I need to have multiples! Surprised how easy it was to put on considering it's a Chelsea boot. Really comfy off the bat which is nice. Can't wait to wear all year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous boot This boot is great! I am a size 6 but usually a 6.5 in boots. With these, I went with a 6 because the 6.5 seemed a little roomy. I went back and fourth on what color to get but in the end decided on black because it is so classic and never goes out of style, although the brown is nice too. The heel height is perfect - enough to give you a little height but not too high to make it seem too high heel-ish and uncomfortable. The leather is beautiful and sleek and they are so versatile. They go with jeans, skirts, dresses etc. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to invest in quality boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Beautiful These are super comfortable to walk in. They pull on easily over my big feet yet hold their shape because the elastic is good quality. They are the perfect mix of casual and cool, and they look really nice with a dress, cardigan and tights. The design definitely adds some length to my legs, which I appreciate. I am a size 10 in Madewell shoes and these were ever so slightly big, but since in the fall and winter I like to throw a pair of short, warm socks on over my tights so my feet don't get cold this works out well for me. Very pleased, as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boot These are a classic fall staple boot. I like the chelsea boot style with the elastic sides. The leather is beautiful and the boot overall seems really well constructed. It fits true to size, and it was comfortable right off the bat too which I was pleasantly surprised by. I'm really looking forward to wearing it all fall/winter. Works well with my skinny jeans as well as my wider leg straight cut style jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found the one I spent weeks looking for the perfect bootie (but not classic). These in black had just the right accent with the brown outersole, but not overboard--which I really love. As other reviewers said, they fit comfortable out of the box and true to size. That said, I'm between a 7.5 and 8, and the 8s are a tad roomy, so I'm considering sizing down. Five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Chelsea Boots I've been almost buying a different pair of Chelsea boots from Madewell every year for the last four or five years. Finally gave these a shot when they went on sale around Christmas a few months ago and I'm so glad I did! These boots are the perfect heel height--so comfortable that I wear them at work sometimes 4 days in a week. As much as I wear these, they don't show it. The leather is barely creased at the toe and the elastic is as good as the day I bought them. They slip on so comfortably because the leather both inside and out is so soft. I really love the straight-sided heels to avoid the Western look that I'm not as fond of. I bought them in my usual Madewell size of 7 and they fit perfectly like all my other Madewell shoes do, even though I tend to be in between 7 and 7.5 in other sizes. They go with absolutely everything. I'd consider buying a second pair as back-ups, that's how great they are.
