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.

So Comfortable! I love these boots. They are warm, truly waterproof and the most comfortable boots I own. I walk around NYC all day every day and my feet feel like they're in heaven. Much like the other reviewer, I'm strongly considering getting a second pair. On top of all of this, they're really stylish. Love, love, love these boots. January 6, 2015
gorge! I LOVE these boots! They look fantastic, and they are VERY comfortable. This is my third pair of Sorel boots and they all seem to fit true to size for me. They are well made, and feel sturdy. I have no complaints at all. They are worth every penny. January 5, 2015
LOVE These I don't think I've ever loved a pair of shoes so much in my life. These look so cool, and I feel like a million bucks when I wear them. Perfect balance of style, comfort, and warmth. Order a half size smaller than what you wear. My foot size is a solid 9- just a tiny smidgen bigger, so I usually wear size 9-9.5 depending on the shoe... I read the reviews here and decided to trust them and ordered a 8.5 in these, which I was pretty nervous about because I never wear anything less than a 9, but the 8.5 is perfect on my size 9 feet, with and without winter socks on. Super comfortable. I do not like wearing heels. I won't wear heels even if they are a tiny bit uncomfortable. When I wear these boots, I feel that sexiness you feel when wearing heels from the extra height, but my feet and my legs don't feel the pain. And I wear these nearly every day, for nearly the entire day. They're pretty warm! I have trekked through the snow and ice in these, and they stood up to it pretty well! Only once have my feet felt cold, but I think it's a circulatory problem. After I opened these, I spent at least 5 minutes just looking at them and admiring how well made these are. Totally worth the money. And even though the guidelines tell me not to write about customer service- I just have to. Sorel is GREAT! Customer service is exactly the way all customer service SHOULD be. Thumbs up, high five, endless thanks Sorel- you guys rock. January 5, 2015
Joan of Arctic Wedge These boots are very comfortable, I never have any problem being on my feet all day with them on. They are warm and look great too, I also get a lot of compliments on the styling of the boot and who makes them. I would recommend these boots to anyone who wants function and fashion all in one style. January 2, 2015
In love I'm in between size 61/2 and 7 for most shoes. I ended up fitting the size 61/2. Like the other reviews, these are absolutely comfortable! I have worn them to work, walk in them for 4 hours straight and they are amazing! I love the look (grill/black), it's very unique and easy to wear. If you are unsure and torn in between getting them or not. Do yourself a favor and get them! Tempted to buy a 2nd pair, which never happens. This is how much I love them! December 30, 2014
Love Them! I originally purchased these wedge boots in a lighter color earlier in 2014. I loved them so much, I wanted a second pair and chose the Grill shade. As the previous pair, my 8.5 medium width size fits perfectly. This style is amazingly comfortable; I have worn them for multi-mile walks with no issue. At 5'2" I love the extra height. Now my 4th pair of Sorels, they are beautifully designed and made, real quality. Sorel is outstanding! December 29, 2014
The Wedge is "IN" love these boots. They are made so well and could wear all day. Definitely recommend them! December 29, 2014
Multi-generaltional shoe Purchased my pair over a year ago, then bought another pair because my then 22 year-old daughter really liked them, and just recently purchased another for my younger daughter because she admitted they were stylish. We wear them with jeans, dresses and leggings. They are comfortable and we can wear them all day long. They also keep our feet very warm in our New England climate. Absolutely love them. December 27, 2014
Fun and comfortable Many miles have been walked in this boot-- it is stylish and comfortable, waterproof with great traction. I recommend this alternative to everyday ho hum snow boots that work well but dont look good, or the stylish boot that leaves you restricted to the shoveled sidewalk ! December 26, 2014
Love these!! So cute and comfortable. I can walk in these all day! Dressed up or down. December 22, 2014
Awesome Boot This boot is awesome! I like the edginess of it while it still maintains its purpose: to be comfy and warm. I wore these for the first time out in NYC (Lots of walking in the December cold) and they performed superbly! Got lots of compliments. I have wide feet and I DESPISE uncomfortable shoes.... these boots passed the test! I would buy these boots twice they are so great. ...buy them! December 17, 2014
Form & Function At first sight of this boot, I fell in love. The style is right up my alley. I thought at first, "they have a Mad Max thing going on." I just had to have them. But of course I wondered if they would be comfortable. When I tried them on at the store, that was it. They were going to be mine. They are hands down the most comfortable pair of boots I've ever worn. I have wide feet and a lot of the time, wedges don't work with my arch. But these boots fit and feel perfect on my feet and they are beautiful. The fact that they have great traction and they're waterproof, well that's just the icing on the cake. Love them! December 16, 2014
I went with my regular size I am extremely picky about boots. So picky, in fact, that I've worn the same pair of Born boots for the past 6-7 years to the point where they're falling apart and had to be replaced. I am really happy with this Sorel boot. Because some reviews state that this boot run large, I decided to try my normal size (6.5) and a size down (6). I ultimately went with the 6.5. It is a wee bit roomy, but much more comfortable than the 6, which felt too tight and restrictive for me. And there is no way the 6 would fit over heavy socks. Anyway... I'm so please with this boot that I'm contemplating buying another pair to tuck away so I can have them in 10 years or whenever these wear out. I've never worn Sorel so I have no idea how long they'll last, but they certainly appear to be well-made. Hope this helps some of you who are having the "what size should I get?" dilemma. BTW, my feet are of medium width. December 10, 2014
Chicago approved! *I never write reviews and I just HAVE TO write this review for you all* Style-conscious people out there living north of the Mason-Dixon line!! This boot is HOT. The first morning I wore these boots out, a woman stopped me in CVS and I gave her the following rave review, which I can assure you holds true after two weeks of constant wear: These boots are incredible. Sleek, fitted and sexy, yet sturdy, safe and warm. The wedge gives the perfect added height without any wobbling! Very easy to walk and balance in. The leather and laces were completely soft from the moment I opened the box. Very true to size. I am 8.5, bought 8.5 and can wear these easily with thick socks. No need to wear them in, no blistering. I put them on that day and haven't taken them off. The killer thick soles seem to hold up on the ice, but I probably won't be able to trudge through the few feet of snow we're expecting soon in Chicago. That's ok though-- totally worth it. I highly recommend this boot for northern climates! December 5, 2014
Cute & Comfy! It took me a while to decide whether to buy these because of the price, but I'm so glad I decided to go for it. These boots are extremely comfortable, I wear them all the time and wish I could wear them more. I get compliments about them from women AND men! Definitely recommend if you're looking for a stylish boot that's waterproof and will help you survive the winter in style :) December 5, 2014
Super comfortable boots This boot is insanely comfortable and stylish at the same time. The sole is very padded with a slight arch support. The heel is so minimal, I really don't even notice my foot is at an incline. I'm usually a 8-8.5 and based on other reviews, I ordered down to a 7.5. They fit perfectly with a regular-thick sock. December 4, 2014
So comfy! Love love love these boots! Even tho they give you quite a bit of height they are great to walk in, including a couple miles home the other night. Well made and so cute! December 3, 2014
AWESOME Wedge! I love this boot. I only wish I had purchased the knee high version of the boot before they discontinued it. :( It is true to size, and very comfortable. I have had many compliments on them. December 1, 2014
awesome! ! So darn comfortable! ! I walked across campus in them all day had no complaints and so many compliments best life decision ever! ! November 25, 2014
So Disappointed! I have been looking at these boots for a month. I need a pair of warm boots to wear with my suits and other work clothes. Online they looked perfect and I finally ordered. I opened the box the top part of the leather was folded over and had been laying like that for some time. Next there is a missed lose stich on the material that holds metal pieces for the shoe string, finally there is a place where "coverup" was added I'm guessing to cover an imperfection. I don't know how these made it past inspection. Also there is no yummy leather smell. I'm so disappointed, its my first and last pair of Sorel. I will be returning the boots. November 19, 2014
Made my feet happy! These boots are the best investment I've made for my feet in a long time. They are cushy, the wedge is a perfect height, the leather is high quality and they look sharp enough to wear with tights and a little dress. I managed to wear them all weekend at a lacrosse tournament, where we had to walk all over and on mixed surfaces. They were sturdy and supportive as well! I definitely, would highly recommend these for anyone who appreciates style and comfort in the same shoe. November 19, 2014
Stylish Boots! These are boots are fabulous for the cold northern winter. Extremely comfortable and super fashionable. They do run slightly large, but when worn with a boot sock they are perfect! They can be worn all day in complete comfort. Awesome purchase for the cold, harsh winter where trying to be stylish can be difficult!! November 18, 2014
Excellent First off, I was so glad I read reviews before ordering because I'm normally a 7.5 and I went with the 7 instead and it fit perfectly - so order a size smaller than you normally would! They are so incredibly comfortable, even with having the wedge. I can wear these to work or out and about without any pinching or pain. The leather is beautiful and soft; my only wish is that the toe be reinforced with a protective coating or more scratch-resistant leather (is that thing?) because it scuffs easily. Overall, they are awesome, and definitely worth the price tag! November 17, 2014
"True to Fit" is False These boots are NOT "true to fit". They are BIG. Also do not compare the fit of other Sorel boots you may have to the fit of these - I did that and ended up with the short end of the stick. After my extremely expensive purchase I was told they don't "do" exchanges, and that I needed to return the product and purchase a new set of boots and eventually I would be refunded for the original amount charged. I assumed you get what you pay for not only in product and attention to detail including sizing but also in customer service; unfortunately Sorel proved me wrong. November 12, 2014
Extremely Happy Customer I had to write a review for these boots. These boots, hands down, are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned! I love the wedge because I can wear them at work and still feel stylish while being warm and comfy. November 12, 2014
Gorgeous Boot! These boots are beautiful and stylish!!!!! Haven't worn in snow, yet. But I will as soon as we get snow. Can't wait. I wish I would've ordered my normal size. If you have between a b and c width foot (just a little wide and want to wear a thicker sock for winter) then order your normal size. I went down a half size because the site said too but no worries, I am wearing them and they are comfortable and well worth the price! My second pair of Sorel's and I still want a 3rd! November 9, 2014
The perfect winter boot! Do yourself a kindness, and invest in this boot. Seriously. I was a little skeptical of the wedge at first, which is why I hesitated purchasing them, but I'm so glad I did. They might be the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn, and furthermore, excellent quality, beautiful color (Grill/Black combo), versatile, and seemingly very warm. They seem to run a little large, though. I am always an 8.5 in boots, and the 8 fit perfectly - with room enough for thick socks, but also snug enough for just tights. SOREL: Please never stop making this boot!!!! November 7, 2014
Amazing boots! I love, love, love these boots! They fit great, are well made and so comfortable. I wore them all day at work and for quite awhile after and my feet felt fine. Normally I am about a 9 1/2 or 10. Based on previous Sorel purchases I sized down to a 9 and they fit perfect. I bought the Grill color- love it, goes with everything! I can't wait to buy the other colors now too! November 2, 2014
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I got these to wear with dark suits this winter so I wouldn't have to switch to dressier shoes when I showed up to a client site, but I also loving wearing them with tights and skirts as well as jeans. November 2, 2014
Love this boot! To all my tall ladies out there-- the wedge is about 2 3/4" totally wearable! I was hesitant at first because I could not find the heel height, but I am SO GLAD I decided to buy! They do run about a half size big, so definitely consider sizing down. November 1, 2014
Must Haves! Love, Love, Love. These are so cute and very comfortable. I was toying between these and the other Joan of Arctic - super glad I got these. Better than expected! October 24, 2014
These boots are amazing! I can't stop staring at the on the shoe rack These boots are sick! Seriously. I got them this evening and though I could have used them earlier today in the torrential downpour, they are right on time. They are gorgeous. I am so excited to break them in. The best part: they have arch support! I was nervous that I would have to buy inserts for my high arches, but these are perfect! I am so happy about that! I have never spent so much on boots before, but this is my third pair of Sorels and I think they are already my favorite. The only complaint I would have is that I have one wide foot and they're a little snug across the vamp, but I am confident the leather will stretch to accommodate my foot. October 23, 2014
Good Investment Cute and comfortable. Much more comfortable than I expected them to be, given the heel height. The sole is nice and flexible, too, so you don't have to "clomp" in them like some wedges. I did order a half-size down and they fit perfectly. I am constantly searching for shoes that are cute, as well as comfortable. I pretty much gave up wearing heels a couple years ago, but I have worn these already for a couple of full days and they were OK. Not too much worse than my flats, which is saying a lot for such a high heel. Love these boots. October 22, 2014
Love Them!!!!!!! The best investment this year! Joan of Arch wedges comfortable and cute. Latresha Milwaukee October 19, 2014
Trying to justify these boots? Heres your answer....BUY THEM! I just got these boots in the mail last week, the original pair I ordered were too big. I am almost always a 7 1/2, but the 7 1/2 in these boots were too big. I exchanged them for the 7 and they fit perfectly! On to the boot themselves. First of all I got the black/grill color. In other words, the true black color. They are absolutely gorgeous, and so well made. Once you receive these boots you know why they are the price they are. They are sleek, sexy, and most importantly COMFORTABLE. I am originally from Michigan so I have had my share of many different boots, and really putting them to the test. These pass every test in the book, and I am sure they will hold up in the winter as well. I have never been one to be able to walk around in heels for hours on end and act like my feet don't hurt. Maybe I have sensitive feet, maybe I am a wussy, or maybe the shoes are just uncomfortable. NOT THE CASE WITH THESE! I have been able to wear them hours on end without even the slightest discomfort. I will live in these boots all fall and winter long. I can honestly say there isn't a negative about these boots! Enjoy them! October 10, 2014
Buy this now! I saw these boots on someone else and loved them-- when I found out they were actually waterproof, I couldn't believe it! I deliberated over buying these because of the price, but if that's what's holding you back then make the jump. These are well-made boots, super stylish, and I get so many compliments on how cool they are. October 6, 2014
Great Boots! I thought long and hard about these boots due to the price but I am so happy I decided to purchase them! They're just as comfortable as the other reviews said they'd be and I do agree that going a 1/2 size down is the way to go. I get compliments on them every time I wear them! Not sure how warm they'll be since it's not bitter cold yet but get them!! October 1, 2014
beautiful boots The boots are just as pictured and the fit is true to size. I printed their foot chart and measured my foot and that is the size I ordered. They are comfortable, stylish and beautiful. They are my first pair of Sorel boots and I'm sure they wont be my last September 20, 2014
Comfortable This boot is so comfortable. I wore them immediately with skinny jeans & they looked great. Love the quality! Ordered a size smaller & they fit perfect. I normally wear 7 1/2 & bought 6 1/2. Based on previous reviews I down sized. Thanks Sorel for making amazing boots, warm, trendy & comfy. September 18, 2014
Bought them anyway! I was in the store looking for triathlon shoes. I don't wear heals, and I have no need of fancy boots. And I NEVER pay that much for footwear. I wandered a little from the running shoes, and found these. It was love at first sight, totally outside my price range, off my budget, and heals besides. In order to convince myself otherwise, I put them on and wandered around the shoe store for a while. They are heals after all, surely my feet would be miserable in them and I could leave the little hussies behind without another thought. They felt wonderful! I wore them to work today. September 15, 2014
IN LOVE! The moment I saw these I had to have them. Because they are a little out of my price range, I was nervous about the mixed reviews about the size. I am a SOLID 7.5. Literally every show I own is a 7.5. ALWAYS. Because some of the reviews said to go down a size or half size I decided to order the 7. They fit PERFECT! So glad I went down a half size. So comfortable and gorgeous. Just got them and I want to sleep in them and never take them off. Worth working a bit of overtime to pay them off.... LOVE! September 9, 2014
Must Have for Northerners! I live in North Dakota and am not sure how I survived previous winters/springs without these! My feet are always dry, warm, and even with the wedge, I can walk all day. I work in a professional setting and can wear them with dress pants and still look appropriate in the office. I also get a lot of compliments - all of my girlfriends want them or borrow them! They do run a bit large, so I would order a half size down - I wear mine with thick socks and they are fine. August 31, 2014
Comfortable and Trendy!!!! The wedge heel is great comfortable and stable. Walked miles in these shoes on my recent travels to Europe. May 14, 2014
Great boots, Comfortable, Stylish These were comfortable right out of the box. I wore them all day without any pain. These are CUTE. The taller boot is equally adorable, but since I am a smaller person (5'3") shorter boots tend not to eat up my frame. Love the heel height. True to size. If you are thinking of purchasing these, and not sure, but love them....buy them now. They are worth the expense. March 21, 2014
Women's Joan of Artic Wedge - Fantastic Casual Boot This mid boot wedge is stylish and comfortable. The quality of the leather, laces and lace straps is excellent and I can tell these boots will last a long time. The leather is soft and the wedge makes for a comfortable fit. I was looking for a casual boot to wear in snow and rain that is stylish and comfortable and this boot fits the profile. I am a 7.5 and purchased my size, I have a narrow foot and they feel a bit large, but didn't want to risk purchasing a 7 and the fit being too small. I wear thick wool socks with them and it fit is comfortable, but too big with a regular sock. The leather has the stressed look which I like and scuffs that occur wear do not stand out. Highly recommend these as an alternative the typical leather riding boots that are not meant to wear in wet weather conditions. March 20, 2014
Good enough for Rochester mom... I love them! I'm normally a fairly boring suburban lax mom, and these wedges totally ramp up my stylish factor. Not to mention, they are very comfortable, and lug-type soles do well in the snow/ice. March 18, 2014
If you have slim ankles . . . as I do, you'll find that tying this boot all the way to the top makes your heel slip. I liked the boot enough overall when wearing it around the house to modify the tie--I only tie to the second eyelet, which makes the tongue and the top of the shoe blouse out a bit--and keep these boots. They withstand snow and wet well and look great with both skirts and jeans. March 15, 2014
COMFORTABLE, STYLISH AND FUNCTIONAL! I was hesitant to purchase because of the price, however, after wearing these very stylish boots in slush and snow I'm here to tell you that they are worth EVERY cent! I receive so many compliments on these boots. KOOODOOOOOS to Sorel for making a truly functional winter boot that is fun to wear, sporty, top quality and literally goes with everything! The color is awesome, the tread on the bottom is top notch and made for icy conditions, and the lace up with ankle support is securing. These boots look great with skinny jeans/ legging tucked in or with regular jeans/pants. Highly recommend - I'll have these boots for years to come. March 15, 2014
Best transitional season boots I just got these boots after seeing them here and there, and they are amazing. I love that they are waterproof, they fit to size, they are comfortable and adorable, and I've already inspired at least one friend to get her own pair. They are perfect for the in-between seasons, when you are tired of wearing big boots but can't wear your dressier, more delicate ones because the weather is too unpredictable. They go well with pants and look really cute with skirts and dresses too. I was able to bring them with me on a weekend trip, and rely on them to be my main shoe the whole time. Did I mention how comfortable they are? :) March 14, 2014
Love these! Based on other reviews I ordered a 7.5 (I'm usually between 7.5 and 8), and they fit great with regular thickness socks! The boots are SO cute and also really warm, and super comfortable to stand/walk in for long periods of time while also giving some added height ;) Love them and highly recommend! Too bad they don't come in black too! March 13, 2014
