Perfectly Happy I spent a lot of time looking for a pair of winter boots. I had already decided to go with another, less expensive, pair when I saw these. I ordered them immediately and they are worth their weight in gold. Of course, the year I order them the winter was exceptionally mild, so I only got to wear them a few times. They are of such high quality that I don't see myself needing new boots for a very long time though. I expect to get a lot of use out of them.The times I did get to wear them, I was 100% happy with them. My feet stayed very warm and dry, despite freezing rain and slush puddles. They were wonderful in the snow and I didn't slip when it was icy.I'm usually a size 7.5 so I ordered the 8. They are roomy but I wouldn't go as far as to say they are TOO big. I'm very comfortable in them.A few things to keep in mind:I was looking for snow boots. These are snow boots. They are very stylish, but they aren't the kind of boots you can wear to the club, know what I mean?Several reviewers mentioned that the boots fit well over muscular calves. On the flip side, they feel a little loose on my skinny legs. It's not a terribly big deal, but I do tend to wear them with a ticker pair of jeans to take up some of the extra room. October 4, 2012
Winter, Here I Come!!!! My fiancé and I are moving back to NYS after 4 years in VA. Our first winter in VA, I made him promise me that if we ever moved somewhere with "real" winters, he had to get me amazing winter boots because I get cold easily. Well we're moving in 2 weeks and he gave me these boots last night. I was expecting him to get me some solid, warm boots, but I never expected him to get ones that are so cute! For the first time in my life, I'm excited for winter (it's only August)!As far as sizing goes, I wear either an 8-1/2 or a 9 depending on the shoe (8-1/2 for casual shoes depending on the brand, 9 for more technical hiking/backpacking boots). I got a 9 and am very happy with it, as the 8 would have been too short from heel to toe with thick socks.To address the negative comments about the boot: these boots are for serious snow, slush, and cold. They are not cutesy little boots designed to be cute. These are designed to be warm and waterproof first, and fashionable second. Warmth and waterproofing requires some weight. Also, they are not technical enough (regarding foot support, or aggressively soled enough) to replace solid hiking/backpacking boots, but will be a dream to slip into before hitting up the pub after a day-long snowshoe.

Fabulous boot!!!! Amazing winter boot! Completely waterproof and warm! I love the height of the boot (I'm short and it comes to just below my knee). Since we have had so much snow this winter here in toronto I have worn them every day this winter. I also get complemented on a daily basis and asked where I got them! Best purchase I have made in years, (btw - I hate winter! - I prefer flip flops!) March 1, 2014
BEST BOOTS AND SO CUTE! I looked everywhere for these boots (didn't want to buy online because of size issues) and finally found these at Goods in Breckenridge Co. LOVE THAT STORE! GO and you'll find every style! February 12, 2014
Listen to your co-workers A gal I work with had a pair of Sorels last winter- and I thought they looked great. She said they were super warm, waterproof and that she was thrilled with them. I bought my pair this September and couldn't be happier with them. Super warm, waterproof - and every day I wear them, someone comments on how great they look. I bought pairs for both my mum and sister for Christmas - they were stoked. December 27, 2013
Excellent boot Overall, I'm incredibly pleased with my purchase. I was looking for a sturdy, but cute boot that could handle a Montana winter. These bad boys certainly fit the bill. We've been experiencing an arctic cold snap (hello -25!) and my feet and calves have stayed warm and toasty. Also, they're quite grippy on the bottom and I haven't slipped on the snow or ice so far. The bottoms are waterproof, so I'm not worried about when we get that wet snow in the spring. I do plan on waterproofing the shaft of the boot, though.I have pretty muscular calves and I haven't had a problem wearing these with jeans or multiple layers of leggings and sock. I've received several compliments on them when I wear them because they're absolutely adorable. Again, I'm very happy with these boots and I anticipate that they'll last me a few more winters. December 6, 2013
Boots Without the Fur I bought these thinking they would be a bit slimmer with less fur. I am not a fur kind of girl but from the pictures, the fur looked minimal.Turns out there was a lot more fur than I could handle. I have 8.5 feet on a small frame so the boots looked very big in proportion to my body. Call me crazy but I ended up cutting out the fur and I love how they look. The fur really adds bulk. They are warm and comfortable, just what I need for the winter months. December 4, 2013
Cate the Great Winner I ordered my first pair of Sorels for this winter in Chicago (2013). I grew up there but have been living in Hawaii for over 2 years and have completely forgotten what cold is....I ordered these boots because they looked cute and super warm. After I ordered them, they showed up quickly (and I love the recycled box option!). I am between sizes 8.5-9 and ordered a 9 because a friend told me they tend to run a bit small. I tried them on without socks and there was room in the boot for thick socks--the space is a bit noticeable and they feel bulky, but that's just because they are heavy duty winter's a change from my normal flimsy flip-flops, but I'll accumulate to the big winter boots again! I am excited to wear them in the snow--I highly recommend these already! November 26, 2013
Everything I hoped for! I had been researching these boots for a long time and finally they went on sale in the color I wanted and in my size so of course I pounced on the opportunity to own them! I paid $6 extra for faster shipping and I received them two days later, I was so excited! Usually I'm a 6 1/2 but I bought 7s, they may fit slightly large but I would be worried the 6s would be too small so I'm happy with my choice. I've gone hiking and done a lot of traveling in these boots since I got them and I have absolutely no complaints. They are everything I hoped they would be. They have never once hurt my feet, I didn't even have to break them in. They keep me sooo warm! I can finally enjoy the cold weather! I highly recommend these boots to everyone! They are fashionable and functional. I plan to own them for the rest of my life! November 21, 2013
Warm, cute, and good traction! Today was my first wearing these! It rained (33F), it snowed(32F), and it was insanely slippery (19F). Walking around campus I stayed warm, and I didn't wipe out, plus I got a few compliments on them! Don't know how they'll do when it gets really cold, but I'm guessing they'll keep me comfy and toasty! November 20, 2013
Slightly Large, But Worth Every Penny Really excellent boots. My feet will be warm, dry, and cute for years. The boots fit large, and even after sizing down the heel and ankle fit pretty loosely, something I had to get used to after more snug-fitting shoes. Overall, they're great. I don't regret a cent. November 19, 2013
Beautiful and warm! I have been eyeing these for awhile and finally purchased them. I couldn't be happier! They feel great, very sturdy and warm. I am an 8.5 in most shoes and based on the previous reviews I assumed that I would probably need a 9, which was incorrect. I ended up returning the 9's in favor of 8's which fit perfectly with big socks too. November 19, 2013
Serious winter boots! I live in Minnesota, and I bought these to wear on my walks to work this winter. We have not gotten a lot of snow or ice yet, but I think these are going to keep me very warm and dry. They are well-made, and so far they have done well in rain and slush. I am not necessarily looking forward to a long, cold winter ahead, but I do look forward to having tall, warm boots to wear! I wear a solid size 9, and these are a bit big, but great with thick socks (which is what I will be wearing with them anyway). November 19, 2013
THE BEST These are the best slippers I have ever worn...wait, they're not slippers? They're BOOTS?! No way! They ROOOCCCCCKKKKKK! November 14, 2013
So ready to tackle the snow!!! I had ordered this particular pair because I live in a seasonal area where snow will be upon us shortly and I will need them to walk into town and live in for the winter. They are roomy for thick socks and cozy with additional styling of the removable faux fur at the top. The leather is well constructed and this will be a winter boot to last me for years to come. I highly recommend this product. Also, I wear a 9 in Sorels and normally a 8 in most other boots. Note: These are are wide in the foot and designed to be roomy enough for you to wear thick socks. November 10, 2013
My new favorite winter boots!! I've always heard Sorel was a great brand of boot, I have one pair of Sorel women's camo hunting boots for snow/ water/mud on our 4,000 acre ranch and they are great...but I needed a winter, water proof boot that I could wear anywhere, not just on the ranch!I searched on Sorel's website and found "Cate The Great" boots which happened to be on sale so I oredered 2 pair, one for me and one for my daughter for Christmas!I was afraid I might be ordering too small when I ordered my normal size, based on the reviews of others about sizing, but they fit great!Can't wait for the snow/cold/water to wear them in! November 10, 2013
Durable, stylish winter boots! I adore my new Cate the Great boots. They are very warm, pretty stylish (I think they're cute and get lots of compliments on them), and totally weatherproof! I highly recommend these boots to any of you who will be out stomping around in the elements. November 9, 2013
Can't Go Wrong With These Fabulous Snow Boots I received my Cate The Great boots in Biscotti, and I love them! I cycle in the fall and winter and these boots do the job in keeping my feet warm and cozy. These boots are of great quality, and you just simply cannot go wrong for the price. Also, I found the sizing true to size. November 9, 2013
Cool boot. Runs big. I'm normally a 8.5 - 9 in boots. I returned the 9 and the 8 fits perfect!!! I could actually pull the 9 off my foot while laced up, it was that big. These are the coolest snow boots I've owned. I'm waiting for snow now. Love these boots!!! PS I take a 9 in the slim pack riding tall boot for comparison. Another awesome boot by Sorel. November 7, 2013
Great!!! They are great. Ok, they are huge and not super lady like, I wouldnt wear them out to a classy party, but they are just what you want them for - amazing in the snow. SO warm, so comfortable. It seems like NOTHING can hurt or touch or freeze my feet when I have them on. Like I could go hiking in the North Pole and be fine. Im usually a size 10 in flats or heels, sometimes Im a 9,5 but I ordered a 9 this time and they fit perfect. DEFINITELY order a size smaller.Also, I think they fit pretty much any leg, because the upper part is wide and big and you can adjust it to your leg by tightening it.Overall, amazing purchase. Been wanting these boots forever and so excited to wear them this winter and never have cold or wet feet. November 7, 2013
Everything I expected I am so pleased with this purchase. I have been eying these bad girls for a year now. They are comfortable, true to size, warm and ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! You can dress them up or down. I actually wore them with a long jeans skirt the other day and got a billion complements. I love love love love them. The original price was a little steep so I waited for a sale. I am now convinced, that I will most definitely buy another pair, full price, without hesitation. They are that awesome. However, seeing that they are built so well, I imagine I won't have to purchase more for quite awhile. It did open my eyes to the quality of this brand and I will be buying a pair for my daughter. However, I am thinking of the Kate of Alexandria and we can share. The perks to having a 15 year old with the same size foot. Thanks Sorel. You guys rock. This winter, while I am trudging through 8 feet of snow, I will be thinking fondly of your corporation. November 6, 2013
Glad I sized down! Great boot so far! I was nervous to purchase without being able to try the boot on seeing that I am quite picky on shoe fit. I usually wear a 7.5-8 but went with the 7 and they fit perfectly. Very comfortable and toasty warm. We had our first dusting of snow and they were awesome. Cant wait to see how they stand up in a full out storm. November 4, 2013
Not for me This shoe was ordered in a size 8, my normal size and they are huge. I could have got a 7. Also, just too bulky looking for me...Not girly enough. they are well made and seem to be great quality. just not my style and way too big October 31, 2013
Difficult to Walk In I was so excited about these boots, but upon putting them on, they looked like giant clown shoes on my feet. They would be good for trudging through snow, but they are not easy to walk in if you prefer to walk heal-to-toe and not by lifting your entire knee and leg to move one step. I really wanted to love these but was disappointed at how clunky they are and how obnoxiously big the toe looks. Bummed out. October 30, 2013
Quality Boot Impressive quality, and styling. Well made and comfortable. October 23, 2013
Love these! Just received these so have not had a chance to try them in the snow or mud yet. I know I will love them this winter. They are not to bulky, fit is a tiny bit big but I am sure with boot socks they will be perfect. Love the look. So glad I ordered them!! October 22, 2013
just what I wanted Was looking for a warm, tall, functional boot to get through our long and cold winters. This looks like it will fit the bill. I am pleased with the looks as they are more fashionable than most "snow boots". I like the removable felt liner that makes it easier to dry the inside of the boot if it gets wet which is likely to happen at some point in snow country! The outer sole is a sturdy rubber and the size runs slightly large which works out well when wearing thicker socks. I believe I will be quite satisfied when the time comes to wear these beauties! October 22, 2013
It is a good boot I wear size 8.5-9, so I went with 9, and it fits well. The quality of the boot is very good and I recommend it for people who need a very warm boot for winter.However, the boot was bulkier than I expected so I think I might have issues when driving. I know though that I will be plenty warm if I decide to walk for a long time. October 21, 2013
LOVE Bought these boots for my daughter. She is a nursing student and has to walk a lot to and from classes and work. She loves her new boots and her friends love them so much they want to buy some too! Thanks for making boots that are practical and cute at the same time. October 18, 2013
Worth every penny I've been living in the mountains of Colorado for two years now and have been dreaming of owning sorels since day one. Now that I finally bought some I LOVE THEM! They are warm, dry, and durable. Not too bulky that you can't drive a car and generally true to size. Perfect for romping around in the snow and I love the style of the leather saddle. Only thing needed is a little bit of weather proofing for the leather and they stay beautiful forever. October 15, 2013
Love my Cate the Grate's! Best boots ever, super comfortable, incredibly warm and stylish. I get so many compliments wearing these! October 15, 2013
Excellent Boots These boots are great for the midwest! I live in Wisconsin, but go to school in Duluth MN and they hold up quite well in rain, snow, and just about any type of cold weather. They are super cute and are extremely warm!! Would recommend to everyone! October 11, 2013
Tested in South Dakota Blizzard Last winter I researched reviews for several hours and finally settled with these Sorel's this season. Just a few weeks after I received my boots in the mail, South Dakota got hit with the "Atlas" blizzard...about 4 feet of snow...and lets just say I put them to the ultimate test! Between a snow-buried car and no electricity for 4 days, I had to walk in thigh-high snow and stood in deep puddles of water never once got cold or wet feet. I barely took them off for four days - they were a life-saver. After we could finally get out of the house, we had to clean up all the damage trees, took hours and I see no damage from the rough work. Even though the snow was higher than my boots, I could lace them tight enough to where snow did not fall in - so important. I am usually a street-size 8 and ordered an 8 which with normal socks felt a tad big but with winter socks fit PERFECT. Also I have daily complements on the fashion and quality - my best internet purchase to date! October 8, 2013
Love the look of them and the fit!!! Finally a boot that fits over my bigger calf!!! Love that!! Plus I just get tons of compliments!!!! It's a wonderful warm boot and living in Vail Colorado I work many events that our outdoors and these boots are perfect for my lifestyle!!!! May 1, 2013
So comfy!! I was worried about the fit after reading several reviews and finding different opinions from those that purchased this boot. BUT mine fit perfectly! I have a narrow foot and ordered my exact size-size 8. They are very comfortable, no slipping, my toe doesn't hit the end, heel doesn't slip and they are very cute! Now all I need is some snow!! OH-also love the tred on the bottom so I won't slip while in the snow. THANKS!! April 6, 2013
cate the GREAT I love these boots! I bought them looking forward to next winter but was surprised with a springy snow day so I got to wear them a bit early! I usually wear a 7.5 and after reading many of the review I took the recommendation to get the size 7 which is perfect. They are a little bit snug but would have definitely been too big if I got the 8. They are cute and stylish to wear around my campus or out to coffee and will definitely warm and durable in the snow. Get these boots! March 31, 2013
Not great for skinny legs Great, functional, boot. Runs a tad large. As another buyer mentioned, they are great for muscular calves but fit a bit large on my skinny ones. It feels like there is some kind of ankle support that I was not expecting and may require a little breaking in. Overall satisfied. March 27, 2013
Cate the Great is Great I ordered this boot as I needed something high, warm and durable. I live in New England and spend much time outside especially walking my dog in deep snow. These boots provided everything i was looking for. The only downfall is doing up the laces but that is offset by the warmth and comfort of the boot. I ordered my exact shoe size and the fit is spot on. Love them! March 24, 2013
Awesome boots! These are the most comfortable boots, that are waterproof, that I have ever owned. Usually protective boots are clunky and stiff. Not these, they are comfy and stylish. They do stretch, so get either your true size or even a half size smaller. Overall, love them!!! March 15, 2013
Beautiful Boot! This is a beautiful boot! Very stylish, but warm and functional. They do kind of make your feet look large (even though I do wear a size 10), they look wide. Very comfy though, I love them! March 12, 2013
Love them I've had these for a week or so now and am loving them! I'm a 7.5 and the 7 fits me perfectly, whether I'm wearing thick or thin socks. I've gotten compliments on them every time I wear them and now my fiance wants a pair of mens Sorels. They look great with jeans or leggings or with a dress on a chilly spring day. Construction so far seems well made and durable. And they are still comfortable after all day at work. I'm happy when it snows or rains and will be kinda bummed when I have to put them away for summer :) March 12, 2013
SOOOO worth the wait!! I live in Alaska and this has been my dream boot for the past 2 years. This year I was finally able to buy them and I couldn't be happier! I love this boot; so warm, very comfortable. They are not bulky or heavy and they look great on! I have a large foot and the reason I chose Cate the Great is because it doesn't make my foot look big at all!! I am borderline size 11/12 and thankfully the 11 fits perfect. The one and only downside.... I wish I would have bought them sooner :) March 11, 2013
Good boots but... The boots is good but on the picture they look more delicate than they really is. I was wearing them on 30F and my feet was very cold so I don't know have they can be warm in a real low temperatures I expect more for this price. February 25, 2013
way too big Shipment arrived fast, great quality of shoe; however, shoe rubs while walking causing blister, despite thick sock.Had to return, and absorb cost of shipping back and forth... February 25, 2013
Perfect I wanted some cute boots that would keep my feet warm and dry and these are it. I can wear a 7 or 7.5 so I got the size 7 and it is a perfect fit. February 25, 2013
too big had to return, was swimming in it. also, the boot is very high and heavy, made my back hurt. February 25, 2013
womens cate the great boot these boots are so hot! Wore an athleta dress with the boots on a cold snowy day to my part time job where i am on my feet all day. my feet were warm and comfortable. I received a ton of complements on the boots! I would recommend these to anyone who wants functional and fashionable boots. February 24, 2013
Best Boots. I absolutely adore these boots. I got them with the hope that I could look fashionable and play hard. I was not let down. I am constantly getting comments about how great they look and just the other day I went on a hike through the snowy dunes of west MI. They were warm, sturdy, and I didn't slip and slide around.As I read on reviews before I bought them, the toe part was a little snug when they arrived. I bought a size 7. They have since stretched just a touch and I have no problem with them.I would recommend Sorels to anyone...especially these. February 19, 2013
Love these! These are the warmest boots I've ever had, and they are so cute! I have worn them almost everyday since I got them and I've gotten tons of compliments on them. The traction is not the best on extremely slippery ice, but they are waterproof and very warm. I normally wear a size 9.5, but the liner in the 9.5 felt too small (even though the boot itself felt big enough). I opted for the size 10, which is a little roomy, but I have been very happy with them (more room for big socks for the really cold days). February 14, 2013
Best boots ever This is the second pair of Kate the Greats that I have purchased. My first pair are still in great shape after 3 years, but I like them so much I wanted another pair! Order you true size- and while they may feel a tad snug when you first put them on- your foot will mold to them perfectly. They are warm and fashionable at the same time. I hightly recommend them!
