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 5 out of 5 by Comfortable warmth! I live in a warm climate and never need winter boots. But when I planned a winter vacation to Iceland, I knew I needed to find something to keep me warm. I tromped through deep snow, hiked in falling snow, and went on glacier walks in these boots. Not once did my feet get wet, or feel cold in any way. Every day I was so comfortable that my feet could have been clad in tennis shoes, propped up by a warm fire and they would not have felt any differently than they did wading through snow in my Sorel boots. I was nervous about buying these without trying them on first because I have calves that could give a sumo wrestler a run for his money. But the give in both the boot liner and the boot itself was sufficient enough that I had nothing to worry about. There was even one day where I had my leg and 3 layers of pants all tucked into the top of my boots and all I had to do was remove the shoelaces from the top eyelet and everything was good. I highly recommend these boots! March 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome I tried almost every boot on in the store and these were light and comfortable with a tab in the back to get them on easily. More functional than fashionable. Extremely warm too. I normally wear a size 7 and the 6.5 fit perfect. February 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Completely Disappointed I was very excited to receive all 3 Sorel boots today. I was most excited to try on my Premium CVS 1964. I was hoping my purchase would be practical for snow and rain(taking lining out). I spent time unlacing them as I have a ankle brace I wear from injury. I ordered a size down as most suggested. I tried them on barefoot. I can easily wear them barefoot. I don't like bulky socks so I wouldn't wear more than hose. I pulled the lining out the shoe fit like my husband's size 12. If I were to put a thick sock on right now with my ankle brace (stretch material) It would be equivalent to a athletic sock. I live in North Carolina. We usually get a couple snows but a lot more ice. The whole online ordering (which I do a lot) has been uneasy with Sorel. I like a good brand shoe. I planned to order my daughters Joan of Arctic Odsidian and Joan of Arctic Knit II. One very fashion minded and one very practical. I don't know how to order for myself on Sorel much less daughters. I bought 3 boots and none fit. I guess now I pay for shipping back. I've not had a good experience with Sorel online. If you have time and money to try buying online with Sorel , go for it. I personally want better odds. I ordered up and down. Both Out and About too small and Premium CVS 1964 okay barefooted. February 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! My new favorite winter boot. Comfy and stylish all in one. February 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THESE!!!! I love these boots! So cute and comfortable! I got so many compliments the first time I wore them. I have the Joan of Arctics in an 8 and there is a little wiggle room in those so I went for a 7.5 in these and they fit nice and snug (my foot measures at 25cm). I knotted the ends of the laces so I do not have to tie them. These are warm and waterproof. They are great for going to and from work, outdoor chores/activities, running errands etc. They aren't as heavy, warm/hot and high as the Joan of Arctics which is what I was looking for...more of an everyday boot as opposed to a blizzard or full day outside boot. Highly recommend these! February 7, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very wide toe I love this boot in the picture but in person,not so much. I felt so clunky and like I had clown shoes on. The boot was very cute and would look nice on someone with very small feet but was not for me. February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Them! I am new to Sorel. I see these boots around a lot here in Chicago. I love these. I ordered a 8.5 I have some room even with thick socks but I prefer some room rather than being tight. They are extremely warm. Was a little on the fence about the blue, but after wearing them once. I received a lot of compliments. If your size is available get them you won't be sorry! February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and comfortable I wear a 8.5 shoe size but ordered a 8 and they fit perfect! Use their sizing guidelines to measure your foot! I ordered the Stone Blue, Black color and they are even better in person! These are my first pair of Sorel's and I can't wait for my next pair. January 25, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Crazy Sizing?! I am between a size 7.5 and 8; I got a size 8 because I wear lots of layers. When I received the boots, they fit with the liner in but if you were to wear them without the liner they are almost 2inches too large. I went to the only store near me that sells sorel to figure out the size to order and they did not have the cvs style so I tried on other styles. In one style the size 8 was too small, another style was perfect in a size 7, and a third style fit in a size 7.5. I have no idea what size to order and I think I might not even want them anymore. January 13, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Average Stylish boot but not as warm as I was hoping for. We hit -15 and even though they kept my feet dry in the snow, my feet were cold. The boot runs wide- not for narrow feet. Review their return policy before purchasing, especially if they are being purchased as a gift. January 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit, keeps my feet warm. I have a pair of Sorel boots that are 7 years old. I was ready for new boots. I love them just as much as my old pair. They look even better than they do in pictures. I am on a school bus everyday, and no longer have to worry about cold feet. January 13, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice boots, but... These boots are nice, but do look chunky (although unavoidable with most winter boots). I did order a 0.5 size smaller (usually 9, ordered 8.5) as per previous reviews, which was a good idea. My feet were able to fit even with thick socks. HOWEVER, these boots cannot withstand cold weather and your toes will be frozen after a couple of hours in 30 degree fahrenheit weather (even with thick socks on). They are also slippery on ice. Therefore, definitely get heavier boots if you're living in a similar area as myself since 30 degrees is pretty mild. Nevertheless, these boots will keep you warm for a short period of time outside in the cold and will keep you dry. January 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish Boots These boots are really comfy. I get lots of complement every time I wear them. December 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great winter boot This product is great for cold weather. It keeps you warm walking around in the snow, is not slippery, definitely waterproof, and very comfortable. My boot is a little large for my foot, I ordered a 7 and should have gotten a 6.5, but it is still wearable and comfortable. Great product overall and also stylish! December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOOOVE THESE BOOTS I love these boots! So glad I listened to previous reviews and ordered half size smaller because they do run a little big. I normally wear a 9 but the 8.5 fit great!! They are kind of bulky in the toe area but not as much as most winter boots!! And they look super cute with jeans!! They keep my feet warm, dry and cozy!! <3 December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cuter than the picture I was surprised that these were even cuter in real life. Major compliments, they're sleek and trendy. I would order a full size lower - even then I still feel like I have a little too much room, although with thick winter socks that won't be a problem. December 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love these boots I finally pulled the trigger and bought these boots, the premium cvs boot in major/bluff. I ordered a half size smaller after reading the reviews and the 6.5 is perfect. I slip these on in the morning with no socks, I have them tied at the ends of the shoelace so they don't slip out of the eyelets. When it's super cold or I'm going to be outside I wear a smart wool sock and lace them tight. They are easy to get on and off once you've worn them a few times, with or without the liner. They are stiff but in a way winter boots should be. They are a bit wide looking but it makes your feet look tinier. My only complaint is that from the picture I was expecting a tomato red or an orangy red for the sole and the shoelaces. When you get in bright light it looks more like neon pink! I think I'm going to wear them in a bit and see what the color does. But that's the only reason I don't love them 100%. They do come with black laces so I might just change them out and it might not be quite so obvious to me. The quality is, as always, outstanding. I'm expecting to wear these boots for many many years. December 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my boots! These boots were great! I live where it's cold and snowy and they keep my feet warm and dry. I walk to work at a ski resort daily and they've been perfect. Sad to say they were recently stolen when my car was stolen : ( I usually wear size 8, they are a little loose but it works great because I usually wear them with big, warm socks. December 7, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by same problem as last year I have a couple pair of Sorels that are old & would like to get the mid-height, more colorful boots. I ordered some last year, even after reading the reviews that spoke about it gouging their leg on the back. Yep, mine did the same. Thinking that Sorel might have fixed the problem..I tried again this year. I actually ordered 2 different boots thinking one has to work.They are the same. Now I have to pay to return them again. Not shopping with Sorel again. November 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good winter boots I have been on the lookout for new winter boots since my Columbia boots wore out last year, and I am so happy I found these! The wool liners make them super warm, and I know they will be perfect for rain and snow. The boots were a little stiff right out of the box, and I had to undo the laces to get them on the first time, but they were still comfortable the first time I put them on. I think they should wear in and become less stiff with time. With the liner, they are the perfect fit and feel true to size, though with the liner removed, I would probably be able to size down to an 8.5 (I always wear a 9). Definitely a quality product! November 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Boots I think this was a great gift I bought for my better half. She likes things to be fashionable and pretty. I like things durable and tough. It was a hard balance but Sorel did great. Keep it up! October 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sooooo cute, but.... I LOVE these boots. I mean, LOVE. Unfortunately, with a size 10 foot I feel like I have clown shoes on when wearing them. They are a large boot because of the liner/insulation to keep your feet warm. Not so stylish for those with larger feet. They are comfortable, but there is a bit of "crumpling" in the boot if they are not tied as tight as possible. Wish they looked as good on my giant feet as I had envisioned, but they will keep me warm! October 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bring on the cold weather I have been wanting these boots for well over a year - so I finally took the plunge. I tend to wear size 8's in most things, but after reading over the reviews I chose 7.5 and they fit perfectly! I tried them on with the liner in and a pair of Smart Wool socks on and the fit was just what I wanted (comfy fit, not too tight or loose)! I purchased Major, Bluff color combo and I love it - the bright lining on the sole and shoelace is perfect - it's a funky bright coral (I dig it) I live in MI and we get a solid amount of snow along with seriously cold temps - so these will be perfect for the mitten! August 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by BIG and confy Found them very comfortable very warm but the fit is too big August 21, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Way too big I received a pair of these boots in the Siberia colorway and was so excited to get them for Xmas. I am a size 10 in all other brands and based on previous reviews that said this boot ran "true to size" I ordered a size 10. When I received these boots they looked like a man's 10. I checked the box but sure enough it said women's. They were enormous. They fit like a size 12 and don't even think about removing the liner to wear them as rain boots in warmer months-they were like wearing my father's shoes as a child. I was so disappointed because by the time i got them at Christmas, all the sizes had sold out. The real kicker is to UPS ground them back to Sorel, UPS charged $25.00 as they said it was a rural area. So so bummed but will try again next year. They are beautiful and wish they had fit. January 7, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed -- NOT warm! I was so excited to purchase my first pair of Sorel boots to keep my feet warm during the Minnesota winters. These boots are NOT warm. They are somehow rated to -25 degrees (how??). I took my kids sledding in 10 degree weather (10 degrees ABOVE zero and no wind) and within 20 minutes of being outside in these boots, my feet were FREEZING. I was wearing thick, wool socks and thought maybe the socks were too thick. The next time I wore thinner socks and had the same result. These boots are definitely not made for colder, winter temps and no where near the rated -25 degrees. They would be better suited for temps in the 30's and warmer. Other than the boots not being very functional for a Minnesota winter, they're comfortable (but heavy) and they'll keep your feet dry. If you're looking for warmth though, keep searching -- these are not the boots for you. January 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dream boot These boots are great! Warm, comfortable, perfect for Northwoods Winter. They are also stylish. I followed other reviewers and ordered a half size smaller they fit great! They are stiff when you first get them they have to be broken in. They are a heavy winter boot but once you get used to the weight perfect for running around town also. Love them! January 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Comfortable & Fashion Forward LOVE!! They're absolutely adorable and not too chunky like other winter boots can be. I was skeptical purchasing these after reading the reviews on sizing. I am a size 6 and ordered a size 6, they fit perfect! If I take the liner out they're a bit roomy but with a thick boot sock they're just fine. I bought the black pair and if you're worried about the lace color don't, they come with a black pair of laces as well! I have yet to test them out in the snow since we have had a mild winter so far this year, but for once I'm excited for the next big snowfall! December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by in love with these booties! I asked Santa for these for Xmas =P after reading a bunch of revies I asked my ma for an 8.5 when I wear a 9 in everything. The 8.5 is perfect!!! These boots are so cute! Many people said these were uncomfortable and needed to be broken in or hurt their ankles but I have worn these the past 2 days non stop and they are so comfy and warm! I have arthritis in both knees so I'm a sucker for comfy shoes and I'm so glad these turned out perfectly for me! December 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite Sorel "heavy snow" rated boot I ordered the Joan of Arctic Wedge last year and loved them. This year, I wanted a warmer boot. After reading lots of reviews, I went with 1964 Premium CVS due to the low temperature rating (and also because I'm not a big fan of fur, fake or not). I measure at a Size 6 on the Brannock device, and I'm a solid 6.5 in dress shoes and boots. However, I'm also a long distance runner and am accustomed to wearing larger shoes when needed (I wear up to a Size 7.5 in running shoes). I struggled with sizing on this boot. By the time I decided on 6.5, it was sold out! A lot of reviews said it was true to size, or even large, so I very much worried that it would be too big and clunky (especially because it's a heavy duty snow boot). However, there is something about flat Sorel boots that push my feet forward (same thing happened in the Joan of Arctic Knit and Conquest Carly, but the heeled Medina II and the JOA Wedge fit perfect in 6.5). The 7 works fine. The lining takes up some space in the shoe, which helps. I figure this lets me wear super thick hiking socks for long winter trail walks. If I had the choice, though, I would've stuck with my true boot size of 6.5 :) December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for me! I bought these boots to stay warm during recreational outdoor activities, in snow, and with plenty of walking. I love them- my feet never got cold with one pair of socks. The toe box is a little large which gives a clunky feel, but that was fine for me. The ankle angle is slightly forward as well, which took a little getting used to, but again- worked for me. I am usually an 8 1/2 and on rare occasion a 9, but the 8 1/2 was more than sufficient. I have already recommended these to a friend. Now, if only I could find a Sorel coupon code to buy my next pair! :) December 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy!! Great product The fit is great! With the inner lining, they are extremely warm :) I bought the fossil, Siberia color and they come with both the orange laces and some gray ones if you don't want to make a loud statement. Warm, Durable and do well with outfits. They do take some time to break in but overall I am really happy with them :) December 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by cute snow boots These boots are the cutest snow boots I could find, even still they are quite clunky. These boots actually fit great, I'm a size 7 and ordered a 7. They are kinda hard to walk in since they are so stiff and the front of the boot points upward. Good in the snow for keeping feet dry and warm. December 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great boot, not great colors. I needed a pair of winter boots to walk my dogs in the cold and snowy Ohio weather that would keep me warm. I wanted a pair that were functional, but that still looked at least somewhat cute. After a personal recommendation and some looking around on the internet, I decided on a pair of Sorel 1964s. This is my first Sorel purchase and I will say I am really disappointed with the color combinations this year. They previously had a Navy/Black with bright blue laces, and a Beige/Black combo with red soles and red laces that I would have been so much happier with. I picked the "Fossil, Siberia" combination. It's just "okay." The tongues of the boots also don't lay flat, but instead fold over, when tied. So between that, they lose a star. They are BIG, wide, clunky, and awkward looking. I have an average size & width foot, and they are actually wider than both my husband's Army and work boots. That being said, they're still more attractive than a lot of other snow boots. Looks aside, these are a really great and seemingly durable boot. They've kept my feet warm and dry, which is the main purpose I bought them for. They're very nice quality and I expect them to hold up a couple of years, at least. For me, they fit true to size. A little wiggle room with a very thin sock, but if wearing something more heavy duty they'd fit like a glove. The boot insert does tend to come out when you're taking them off, but only if you don't unlace enough. Overall, these are great boots and if they weren't so wide and came in a color I liked better, they'd get a 5/5. November 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by chunky I really wanted to like these boots b/c they are so cute and the perfect height for me but they are very uncomfortable. The back of the ankle bends in and I felt like I was in ski boots, leaning forward. The lining is also uncomfortable. November 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these boots Being in Wisconsin winters, it is hard finding boots that will keep your feet warm. I have already had the chance to wear these, and I absolutely love them. They are big, but not clumsy- and most importantly waterproof. I had on thinner socks and my feet were fine. I am really looking forward to having these keep my feet warm this winter. Most importantly, the Fossil Siberia color look really cute and I have had several compliments on them already! So, overall, I am really happy with my purchase. November 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good winter boot After reading the past reviews, I got this boot in black. It's an attractive boot, although I agree that it does look quite bulky. I sized down half a size to an 8.5 as other reviews recommended, but I think a 9 would have been fine. I probably won't be able to fit a thicker sock in the size boots I have now. Overall, I think this boot will do just fine throughout the winter. November 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Clunky but Practical These boots look huge when you pull them out of the box but I found them to fit pretty true to size. They are extremely warm and are great for the Michigan winter coming up. I usually buy shoes based on how cute they are and these shoes are still cute for how clunky they are. If you are conscience about how big your feet look I would not suggest these boots. Other than that I love them and cannot wait to rock them. November 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adorable and Comfy I just got my boots in the mail and I LOVE them! I usually wear a 9 but I read that they run a little big, so I ordered an 8.5 and they fit perfectly. They do look really chunky on your feet, but I think that's what makes them so cute! Love these boots November 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute & functional I love these boots! They fit true to size even when I have my bulky wool socks on. They will be great for the Minnesota winters! October 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfy Just got these yesterday. They do run a little big which I already saw in previous reviews; but they're perfect with a pair of warm socks. The only thing I didn't like was that they look so big, and my size 10 foot didn't help either. Otherwise they're comfy and look cute. October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I wanted I knew Sorel ran larger from a purchase last year. I normally wear a 7 in running shoes or boots so I ordered a 6.5 and they are perfect. They are so soft and comfortable inside. Yes, they look a little wide from top view, but to anyone else looking at them they are fine. I ordered the black and they came with black laces or a hideous purple which I will never use, lol. Look so cute with leggings or skinny jeans. I can't wait to wear these to work or doing errands all winter when I just want to be comfy and warm! My husband also said he liked them. October 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome! After searching and searching the sorel website for my first purchase of a durable winter boot I finally decided to go with this style in black. They also came with fuscia colored laces which is awesome. After reading reviews about buying one whole size or half size smaller than usual and some other reviews saying to buy your actual size I decided to buy my actual size & find out for myself if they ran large or not. They finally arrived and they fit perfect. My feet aren't wide and are your average looking size 7. My toes are probably longer than average but not crazy long. I hate feeling like my toes are squished or when I walk that my big toe has a lot of pressure on it. These boots give just enough wiggle room for my toes. Looking at them for the first time, after opening the package, they seemed a little large. Getting them on was a small struggle because the inner liner is pretty snug, but it's really no big deal to me. I'd rather have a snug fit than a loose fit that snow will fall inside of. The only struggle was getting them past my ankle & heel of my foot but once they were on all the way they weren't too tight feeling on my feet. Very breathable! Also, I tried them on with a regular athletic sock. After seeing them on in the mirror they don't look big at all in proportion to my body and I'm sure with a winter coat on they will look perfect! I even asked my brothers if they looked too big to them and they said not at all. I gave this boot 4 stars however because I have yet to see how they do in the winter cold here in Michigan! Can't give a full 5 stars until it can stand the bitter cold. They do feel very warm so far though. Can't wait to test these boots in the cold of watching outdoor hockey games in the bleachers! Hopefully no more numb toes! September 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Buy one size down Great boot, comfortable, a little heavy. Should order one size smaller than regular size. Base of the boot is larger than I expected and makes the boot move around while I walk. March 27, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by VERY bulky While attractive and obviously high-quality, this boot looks HUGE and is very heavy. I plan to return them. March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features The boot is very confortable and keep feet warm and cozy. March 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great They do run a bit large. Order half a size down at least. I probably could have gotten a whole size smaller, but half is fine. The quality of the boots is great! I can see them lasting years. They have been perfect for snow and rain. They look huge when you are wearing them and look down to your feet, but they dont look that way from the front or the side, so I saw no problem with this. March 8, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Form over Function I live in Vermont, where it is pretty cold. (It has been between -33 and 30 degrees Fahrenheit for four months or so.) After reading the reviews, I was pumped about these boots. It seemed like they would look good and keep my feet warm, even in the bitter cold. I bought three pairs, one for me and one each for my two male friends. My first surprise was that the tags on the boots said that the men's boots were rated to much colder temperatures than the women's by ten degrees or so. As it turns out, my friends have been extremely happy with the boots, and I have been miserable. I spend a lot of time outdoors in the winter, snowshoeing, hiking, running around, so I really need a good boot. These boots, with no matter which socks I wear, have never kept my feet warm. After 15 minutes outside of the car, feeding chickens or running errands, my toes are so cold that they hurt. I have resorted to wearing lots of socks and my old rain boots because even that seems to work better than these boots. If you live in a place that doesn't get that cold, maybe try these boots. If you are somewhere colder than 30 degrees, forget about it. March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots These boots were exactly what I wanted. Warm, waterproof, good for playing out in the snow. And the price was right. They seem to run a little bit, but with thick socks I have no problem with that. Great boots. February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! I love these boots, I am sure they'll last a very long time. They are totally water proof and extremely warm. They are very comfortable and it makes me wants to wear them all the time. They are extremely functional. I am thrilled with my purchase. February 27, 2014
