The Chelsea Rain Boot

The Chelsea Rain Boot is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have been looking for rain boots like this forever. They don’t feel clunky or heavy, and look great (even if the rain stops). They’re comfortable and warm, I actually look forward to wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I bought these after realizing the full sized Hunter rain boots I bought last fall were no match for my campus hill, and I am not disappointed!! They’re actually comfortable (rare for rain boots), stylish and they’re LIGHT! No more clunking around campus when it’s raining... just throw on my new Chelsea’s!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashionable rain boots I really love these boots. They are perfect for wearing around in muddy/rainy weather & look great with dark skinny jeans. Very sturdy. Size-wise, I had to size up because a size 6 was a little too narrow for my feet (and there's no give, since this is rubber), but after I exchanged sizes they were perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little big but comfortable and quality I've tried on some other chelsea rain boots from other brands and these are my favorite. They're sturdy, comfortable and have great support. I usually wear a 7.5/8 so I bought an 8 in these, they run a little bit bigger but my feet don't slip out or anything, I'll just make sure I wear thick socks.

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 the perfect casual boot and rainboot i wear these boots even when it's not raining. they are an ideal casual boot and perfect for fall/winter when sidewalks are a mess. they are a little heavy, but i found them to be perfectly comfortable. quality seems top notch as i have been wearing them near constantly and they look the same as on day one. i have these in black and green.

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 !!
