Women’s Cate the Great™ Deco Boot

Women’s Cate the Great™ Deco Boot 4.4 5 107 107
Very Stylish, unfortunately at the expense of cold toes Let me begin by saying these boots are super cute and I receive complements every time I wear them. However, two problems... I live in Sitka, Alaska in a temperate rainforest, meaning winters are not very cold. Unfortunately I would end up with cold toes at 35 degrees (they did not get wet). Secondly, after wearing them for about two months the cloth ring near the bottom (the one that holds the laces in) snapped because it is tugged and pulled to tighten the laces. Overall this was a poor design in the lace department; cute, but poor design. I contacted Sorel and they were gracious enough to honor a warranty and are sending me a replacement. This was kind, however, inconvenient when the lace broke on the third day into a two week winter ski vacation, leaving me with only gym shoes to wear. May 19, 2014
NOT Waterproof The boots fit great. They are cute. They kept my feet reasonable warm and dry if I wasn't walking through a foot of snow. They are NOT waterproof. I'm a professional dog walker in New York City, I laid down a fair amount of money on a well known, well respected brand hoping they would live up to their reputation. This past winter during the polar vortex, with all the snow dumped on the city, I found my feet were freezing wet and subsequently cold after only a few hours out. I wasn't walking through puddles - during the break-up I wore my wellies as anyone would. That said, walking through snow and want to keep your feet warm and dry? I wouldn't recommend these snow boots. Sorry. May 7, 2014
Snowshoeing and look good I bought these boots for snowshoeing but I wanted something that looked good too for stormy days. They fit well in my snow shoes and everyone tells me how great my boots look. I live in northern On. However my feet are getting cold at -20C and they are rated at -30, but maybe that is just my feet, all in all am happy with my purchase March 28, 2014
Love! I love these boots! There warm and water proof! They are a bit stiff to drive in. True to size. March 25, 2014
The perfect boot for winter Cate the Great™ is by far the best winter boot that I have ever owned. The perfect high, just tall enough to cover your calves, and incredibly warm and quite the compliment grabber. The fur inner lining and the leather is unique to this boot. I had to grab a pair in my size before they were GONE for the season! Please make sure to keep making this boot!!! March 25, 2014
Great boot! Super fun winter boots - go great with skinny jeans and keep your feet dry! Ordered a half size bigger than I normally would and they fit great. March 18, 2014
Cate the Great is absolutely Great! I couldn't decide between the Cate and the Slimpack, however, there were no more Slimpack's left in my size. So I ordered the Cates. I was pleasantly surprised to find them on sale once they were put into my basket. I was never worried about the quality, I have two other pairs of Sorel's that keep my feet warm and look great! I was really leaning toward the Slimpack's but once these arrived they were hit. They are warm and comfy and fit well. I thought the calf area would be a little big because of the way looked when I opened the box. I have skinny legs but they fit great and I get a lot of compliments. March 17, 2014
Love them! They look and feel great! Super comfortable.. They also keep my feet toasty warm during our super cold winters :) March 15, 2014
Beautiful Boots! Awesome price Boots are warm, rugged and stylish! When you live in MN these are all things that become important to you.I am in love! March 14, 2014
Great buy! I am in love with these boots. They are so warm! I really like the look even with leggings running errands. A great buy, happy with my purchase! March 14, 2014
Cute boot not made for the cold. I bought this boot to wear specifically to the outdoor Penguins/Blackhawks hockey game in Chicago. I believe it was -11 degrees outside and my feet were frozen! These boots did not keep my feet warm at all. They are made very well, and they are a very cute boot but if you're looking for warmth, don't buy these. I did however get them for 104.00 instead of the original 210.00 so that was a sweet bonus. Great boot for the snow, but not extreme weather. March 12, 2014
Just what I wanted! I bought these boots after researching all the sites and styles. I purchased them with the intention of traveling for a long weekend in Québéc with single digit temperatures. I also live in Buffalo and was in need of some heavy duty boots with of course, style! They can easily withstand negative temps and I have received many compliments! I would purchase these again in heartbeat! March 12, 2014
Best boots These are by far the warmest boots I've purchased. March 10, 2014
Snow boots with style These are so sturdy and warm and well made. Beyond that boring stuff these boots are SO unique and stylish. The contrast stitching, the fur peeking out the top... I am in love. They are absolutely true to size for me and were super stiff the first few times wearing them but have since broken in and are nice and comfy. I have only worn them about 5 times and already have had dozens of compliments and questions as to where I got them. Sorels, baby!! March 10, 2014
Love these boots! These boots are wonderful. Chocolate brown on top and light grey on the bottom. Super cute colored stitching….I thought I wanted the all grey but so glad I got these instead. BEWARE - sizing may feel tight when you first get them but the liners pack down quickly and become super comfy. March 9, 2014
Awesome boots! The boots fit true to size for me. I was just in Michigan and it was freezing and the snow was up to my calves. These boots kept my feet dry and warm. The look is really cool too. I already received lots of comments. I would definitely recommend! March 8, 2014
Let it snow Very cute. Love them. March 7, 2014
Warm & comfortable I like them so much. Finally my feet are warm even if it is 1 F outside. Very warm and comfortable. Mayby a little bit wide, just a little bit, but comfy and fashionable which is important for me. March 7, 2014
Great winter boot I was looking for a boot that didn't leave my toes frozen. After reading the reviews I opted to get a half size larger than I typically wear so I could make sure my big socks fit into them. They do run a little wide as some other people complained of, but with thick wool socks this was a nonissue. Very happy I purchased them. My feet stayed dry and warm in the snow/slush mixture we got just after my boots arrived. I'll definitely purchase another pair of boots like these when I do wear these out. March 6, 2014
Not for slick surfaces, cold. I've worn this boot during the 'not-yet-over' winter in Boston, MA.The boots are great for waterproof.They're great for "chilly" temps, but below 30 F you're toes will complain; the colder it is, the more pain your toes will tell you about.Not made for walking on packed snow, heavy slush, and do not wear on ice! We've had a lot of all forms of frozen precip this winter, and these boots have no traction.As I slip & slide on the 2-mile walking portion of my commute, joggers go flying past in their running shoes. Really.If it isn't frigid (below 30), remember these boots lace up. It can take quite a while to get dressed for outdoor activity. Some of you will like that, some won't. Give it some thought. February 17, 2014
Fantastic winter boot for cold, snowy conditions Keeping my feet dry and warm in the polar Chicago weather February 16, 2014
Cate the great boots I love these boots. They look really cool on and keep my feet warm. The only complaint I have is that they are too wide on the base of the boot. I have narrow feet and with the boot on, I feel as though my feet look tremendous. I am a true size 8 and they fit try to size. February 11, 2014
definitely functional. These boots are pretty burly! They are definitely styled for wider calves, which I don't have but I love them anyway. These boots are one of the nicer boots I have ever owned, the quality is great and I can tell they are going to last me a really long time. I mostly bust them out on blizzard days because I prefer to wear smaller boots when the weather permits it. They come with a removable liner and are super warm. February 9, 2014
Great Winter Boot Wonderful, warm boot! I live in Wyoming and use this boot everyday! It has most been -15 recently and my feet have been comfortable in them. Great traction and cute too! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that I had to size down a full shoe size. I normally wear a size 9 (I have narrow, low volume) feet and had to get a size 8 (fits snug in length, but feel good everywhere else). I find in all my Sorels I have to size down at least a 1/2 size. Definitely recommend this boot to others! February 6, 2014
Love these boots! These boots are great. Easy to slide on and go! Looks amazing and keeps my feet warm and dry. February 4, 2014
Nice Styling/Sole is Flimsy Love the styling of this boot but found the sole lacking density and substance. I walk a lot in the snow and ice and can feel every piece of ice and twig on the ground. In addition, the sole has too much give, feels like a cheap pair of ballet flats. They are fairly warm but not warm at single digit and zero temps. I walked briskly for over an hour and my feet were pretty cold when done. I honestly feel this could be a superb boot if they fix the sole flex and density. But unless they do, I would not buy this boot again. February 3, 2014
A lotta boot I wear a 7 and purchased a 6.5, and the 7 would definitely have been better. I tried it on with thin socks too. I thought of taking the inner boot liner out but then the fur would have gone out with it. It's definitely a lot of boot meaning the boot is quite big, thick and clunky. I'm sure I'd be happy for it when I step out in a snowstorm but it was just bulkier than I expected. I would have had to exchange it out for a bigger size anyway, so I decided to order the Slimpack Riding Boot in a 7. Also, I was pleasantly surprised that the reorder wasn't charged shipping. I had expected to be responsible for all shipping in all aspects. February 1, 2014
Had to buy 1/2 size bigger I typically wear a 7, so I bought a 7 and it was too tight. The 7.5 fits perfectly. These boots have helped me survive Chiberia! When it hit -35 last week, my feet were nice and toasty. I didn't even have to wear big warm socks. January 30, 2014
Cate the Great is only average I love the look of these boots, but I am disappointed with the lack of cushion and support on the bottom of the boot. I feel as though there isn't much between the ground and me. When I add my orthotics the top of the boot where the tongue ends presses on my instep.I also see no way that these will keep me warm in -25 degrees. My feet were cool after 20 minutes walking outside in 20 degree weather this week while wearing heavy fleece socks.Sorel has some improvements to make or they need to stop over-selling! January 29, 2014
Fashionable, but waterproof? I bought these boots in the fall (2013), and have traveled throughout the US with them. They are very fashionable and keep my feet and lower leg warm. When you put them on, walk around in them around the house a bit before wearing them outside, just to get a feel as to whether they are too big. They do keep my legs extremely warm (especially in the windy weather). Look fantastic with a sweater dress and leggings. However, my feet still seem to get wet at the sides and ball of my foot. Although the shoe says it is waterproof, I'm not sure how water can seep through the shoe in that particular place. I've held on to them, as we are far into the season. The shoe DOES run big, so get at least a half size smaller. January 29, 2014
I LOVE THEM As we are trying to survive CHIBERIA (the polar vortex in Chicago) I still need to walk two city blocks (snowed and iced) to the train to get to my office. My toes are cozy and DRY (wearing winter socks of course). Once at work, I of course do not take them off -- it is honestly a bit of a hassle. I wear them all day, am cozy all day, and back home through Chiberia.They are a bit large... but its OK because I wear winter socks. I HATE fur and all the fuzzy stuff.. this one actually doesnt bother me, I comb it down during a boring call!Get yourself a pair! Just do not count on the shipping to be timely with the world going crazy over a little cold! January 28, 2014
Great quality Love the boots! Very warm, especially since we are having a crazy cold winter! January 27, 2014
Glad I ordered a size down I read the reviews, and it looked like most said to order a size down, so I did and they fit great. They came right in time too, because we just got hit with 12 inches of snow! I love them and get many compliments on them. Great purchase :) January 24, 2014
Beautiful Snow Boot I love my boots! Fav thus far...... January 24, 2014
Love these boots! I searched for way too long to find perfect winter boots, and these were the winner. The fit my annoyingly large calves; are toasty warm; keep me from slip sliding on snow, slush and ice; and are as comfy as you can expect from solid winter footwear. The back of the heal sometimes rubs a bit, but that's easily solved by tightening the laces. All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase!Quick note about sizing: I am usually a 6.5, but tried that size and a 7. The 7's were too big, so I'd say stick to your normal size, and if you're right in the middle go with the lower. January 23, 2014
Great Looking Boot, Has Livable Issues These boots are warm, most of the time. Sometimes, in the car, my toes are cold but other times they are steamy warm...odd, and maybe a personal issue?? Also, the heal slips up in the rear, I bought an 8.5, and usually wear an 8.5 or 9 in regular boots/shoes. Going to an 8 would not have been an option in the toe box. I am a 40ish mom of 3 and live in Northeast Iowa, it is cold, snowy and wet here. These boots are used for daily running around and will be going snowmobiling in the next few weeks, I hope they keep me warm on the trails. All in all these are great boots.The only other issue I have is not with the boot, but with Sorel as a company. I needed to order different styles and sizes to try on and had to pay $45.00 to send the unwanted boots back. From prior mail order experience, Nordstrom doesn't charge for returns and REI only deducts $8.00 for shipping from your total refund. This is something Sorel should think about. There are not multiple retail options for one in this area to go and try on styles and sizes in these boots. January 22, 2014
Worth it I bought these boots as a second option, I really wanted the Torfino's but were all sold out. When the boots came, I was not sure if I was going to keep them or send them back. I ended up keeping them after trying them on with jeans many times and walking around the house. I wore these walking all day in NYC and they were fine, kept my feet warm and dry. Then I couldn't wait for the "Arctic Chill" that dumped 15 inches of snow in PA and wore them to shovel for 2+ hours. My feet and calves stayed warm and dry. I told my 10 year daughter that she will be getting a pair of Sorel's next year because they are worth every penny. I ordered a size 9 after reading the reviews. I wear between a 9-10 depending on the shoe/boots. The 9 was perfect, I wore both normal and thicker socks and didn't have a problem. Some of the reviews also said they were big and bulky, they are snow boots so I am not sure what they were expecting. I didn't find them to be overly big and bulky, once you get used to them and broken in, they are wonderful!!!! They are cute too!!! Hope this helps!! January 22, 2014
A great winter boot. This winter boot has all the stylish features my daughter loves while keeping me happy knowing her feet are warm. January 21, 2014
Way too wide I received these boots as a Christmas gift and unfortunately had to return them. The foot bed was HUGE! Way too wide and not true to size, at least for me. I returned these & bought Tofino Premiums in a 1/2 size down and they are perfect. I loved the look of these boots, but I am 5'4" with size 7.5 feet, and the Cates were just a little too overwhelming for my shorter frame. January 21, 2014
Just Love Them!! After much searching for a pair of "good" winter boots I decided to check the Sorel Boots out. My daughter has a pair & recommended these. Must admit I searched many websites looking for these in my size. Not easy. Decided to go to the source & was very happy to find these boots in MY size :-) THey fit true to size & are very warm & stylish. "Many" compliments when I wear them. Got them in reasonable time & was glad when the weather got cold here in Maine again so that I could wear them. January 21, 2014
Best purchase ever! I had been dragging my feet buying new boots for quite awhile. Then, the "Polar Vortex" descended upon Chiberia (Chicago) and I was left with wet and frozen toes in inferior boots. Hearing amazing things from all my friends about Sorels, I took the plunge and haven't regretted a moment since. I even got some of my Sorel-less friends and family to buy their own. These "Cate the Greats" are just that: GREAT! I fell in love immediately with the cool slightly plum brown color and it was a surprise to find (much to my enjoyment) purple and yellow stitching details along the trim. It took just a few treks out in the snow to get used to the slightly bulky feel of the boot but boy do I feel invincible in these! In all seriousness, you need these boots in the cold and snow. I promise you will not regret them. January 21, 2014
Cate the Great I love my boots! They are warm and water proof, and look great. I was worried they wouldn't fit, but after reading reviews I ordered a 6.5, I usually wear a 7.5 in shoes. They fit perfect! My ordered was shipped out as soon as it was processed. I will be ordering other styles! I have told all my friends about these boots! January 20, 2014
Most amazing boot I have ever owned I live in Northern Michigan. Right after my husband got these boots for me as a Christmas gift it dropped to -40. My feet stayed warm and toasty. I can have these on for 10 minutes or 10 hours and my feet feel wonderful!! Practically they are everything they claim to be and more. However, it is how beautiful they are that really got me!! I would have never purchased these for myself and my husband scored brownie points for years!! They are stunning and I constantly get asked where I got them. They are really the best boots I have ever owned for every reason!!! January 15, 2014
Beautiful boots!! I bought a pair of gray Cate the Greats three years ago and absolutely love them. I decided to get another pair this year as a treat and also because it snows like crazy where I live and it's always practical to have an extra pair of snow boots. I was hesitant about ordering the brown color, but I totally love them! The purple stitching adds fun flair and the fact that the rubber lowers are a darker color than my other pair make them a little more "dressy". I wear these everywhere during the winter and always get tons of compliments on them! January 13, 2014
Lacking Sole Get it? Soul? Anyway, I walked around in these bad girls for about 20 minutes on a frigid NYC polar vortex day, and the TOPS of my feet stayed nice and toasty…while the bottoms froze! Such a weird sensation. It's almost like the manufacturers forgot a layer of rubber or something? I read another review that said you can feel every rock and pebble you walk on, and she was spot on. Super cute boots, but just not practical. Returned, and am buying Uggs. Sorry Sorel, I wanted to like you!! January 12, 2014
Now this is love! I am ecstatic about my new boots! They fit beautifully, true to size. They are chunky and heavy, but isn't that the point?! The only thing I can not yet review is actually facing the elements! I am fearful to actually get them dirty! Does anyone have any advice on the best way to protect the Full-Grain Leather and the Suede tongue? January 9, 2014
Love my boots! I love my boots! I am studying in Canada and needed some serious winter boots. These are working great and they are pretty stylish. The only thing is that most of the Sorel boots I've tried on (at least 4 other styles) have a stiff placard in the back that hits my Achilles' heel wrong. Even these boots do, but it's not bad and they are a bit easier to break in. I recommend trying on any of the high boots you are interested in, even if you don't think you'll get the exact ones. Overall great boots though! January 8, 2014
very cute My boots arrived just in time for the "snowpocalypse" I like them a lot. They are on the wide side but, I have very narrow feet. I usually wear a 9 1/2 or a 10. I ordered the boots in a 10 to accommodate heavy socks. They are very cute! January 7, 2014
Big let down Here it is, -15 and two feet of snow on the ground in Chicago and when I need my boots the most, I can't wear my Cate the Great boots. The leather straps that the shoe laces go through wear down to a thread and break along with fraying the shoe lace. So, two weeks ago, I took my boots back to the shoe store I bought them so I could get them fixed—still waiting for my boot to get repaired. Sorel has let me down. January 6, 2014
Perfect winter boot! Love these boots! Roasty toasty warm even in the dead of New England winter! They come up just over mid calf, plenty high enough for most daily snow. I take a size 9 wide, with high arches, I was a bit worried when I first tried them on as they seemed a bit snug but after just an hour they opened up and now feel like slippers. I would say it has medium arch support. The only thing that I see as missing is a back calf pull tab to help pull them on super easily. (Still not a big deal.) A bit heavy for long walks (I do 3-4 miles daily in the woods) but great tread, and sturdy enough to strap into snowshoes. If you are looking for a good quality snow boot that also looks great with leggings these are the ones. January 2, 2014
