How to Measure Your Foot

  • Place your feet flat on a piece of paper and mark your longest toe and the back of your foot. It's best to do this standing and wearing socks
  • Measure the length (cm) straight from your longest toe to the back of your foot using a ruler or measuring tape.
  • Use the chart to find your size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for ice fishing! I've owned a pair of Intrepid Explorers for 4-5 years now and use them solely for ice fishing, mostly in upstate NY and the Adirondacks and typically in bitter cold conditions. I absolutely love them. I'm typically on the ice from before sunrise to after sunset, do 20-30 trips per year, and put an estimated 60-90 miles on them per year. My feet rarely get cold and never get soar in these boots. They are incredibly comfortable. The first pair I bought leaked but the replacement pair, which was covered, has been waterproof to satisfaction. I spend alot of time dragging my sled and sprinting to tipups and the traction is great (need ice cleats for glass ice). My first pair of ice fishing boots was a pair of Caribou's, that I still wear on occasion, but my feet tend to get cold and soar after a while. If you're looking for a pair of ice fishing boots, do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on the Intrepid Explorers. They have multiple sole inserts in them plus the felt inner boot so your foot is at least 2" above the ice which I think makes them so warm (yet I never feel like my feet are sweating...and they sweat in everything else). After all of this abuse the nylon material near the lace loops is wearing in spots and small holes are starting but I suppose they have held up fairly well considering the annual wear and tear. My one recommendation (if this hasn't been improved already) would be to use a slightly more durable nylon material that might hold up a little better - only reason I gave it 4 stars as opposed to 5. For the price I'd like them to last a little longer. In any event, buy these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for the COLD! Needed a warm boot for the chilly winters here in Alaska. I use the boot for Aurora chasing, ice fishing and spending hours outside in sub zero temps. I find this boot extremely warm and comfortable. This is the a great product for the cold and highly recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boots leak My son bought these particularly for the waterproof and warmth. He wore them yesterday for the first time and they leaked in to his foot. Very disappointed. Would like to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sorel I ever owned After purchasing my wife a pair of Women’s Alpha Pac™ XT Boot, which she loves. I sprung for a pair of Men’s Intrepid Explorer™ XT, for myself. They are worth every penny. The Most Comfortable pair of Sorel's, I have ever owned over the years. Seriously love, how they have performed so far this Minnesota winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waiting for Winter Received my new boots without any problems. If they are as warm as they look I`ll be happy. But will have to wait a few months to know for sure.
