Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, stylish and comfortable Great boots, they are super cute, stylish and oh so comfortable. I was worried about the fit because I have large calfs, well no need to worry these worked perfectly. I got tons of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Pulled the Trigger! I finally pulled the trigger after missing out on these last year and was absolutely devastated... So after I received and email and saw that they were 50% off AND almost gone, I couldn't risk missing out on them again! I was a little nervous because I wear anywhere from a 7.5-8.5, but the closest they had to my size was an 8.(My "Conquest Carly's are an 8.5, but my "Out-N-About" duck boots are a size 8) So I quickly skimmed the reviews, and it sounded like a size 8 would work. *Fingers crossed!* (Still nervous) The day I received them, I immediately unboxed them and tried them on with socks, and they fit PERFECT! I live in Wisconsin so I've had a chance to wear these a few times this year, and I have gotten compliments everywhere I go! The grocery store in jeans, a night out with the girls in leggings, and a few other places. These are very comfortable for a wedge boot! I've stood for periods of time, and walked distances in these. In conditions where the pavement is a bit slick etc, I feel safe walking in them. I've also worn them in really cold weather, and my feet didn't freeze like they do in your "run of the mill" knee high boots from your local department store... Another hit for Sorel, and another hit to my wallet... But they are SO worth it! Thank you Sorel for combining both fashion AND function! Absolutely genius!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boots Very comfortable and I get lots of compliments. They only thing I don't like about them is that it takes a while to unlace them and take they off. Other than that it's vey beautifully made and very stylish. It also gives you height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shoes Ever These boots are amazing! They are super comfortable, and rain or shine I'm able to walk around in them all day long with no problem. I get compliments on them every time I wear them. I bought these boots in the Pebble color, and am about to purchase them in the black too! I highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Comfortable This is my 7th pair of Sorels in the last year!!! I love love the way the fit!! These beauties were on my radar but wasn't sure how they would look in person... better than expected!! Such high quality and the colors are spectacular!!!! I wear with jeans and skirts!!!! By far my favorite pair of Sorel!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I saw these boots on instagram and knew I had to have them. They are absolutely worth the price tag, in fact you're probably getting a bargain. They're so comfortable and chic. I put them on and felt like I could climb Mount Everest! You'll never want to take them off. I highly recommend. Plus they're so unique that you're bound to get lots of comments. I also have a somewhat wider foot and the 8 made my foot look super small and slim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly comfortable!! This is my first Sorel purchase and I will definitely be buying more! I ordered the black Cate the Great boots and they are so comfortable! I wear a 9.5 in most other shoe brands and I ordered a 9.5 in Sorel and they fit perfectly. The boots keep your feet very warm; I've walked in rain and light snow with them and my feet were warm and dry. I would recommend these boots if you're looking for a cute, comfortable, well-made boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite boots These boots are awesome. I love the style and color. Best of all, the wedge heel is so comfortable that you can wear the boots all day. My best friend tried my boots on and she ended up buying the exact same pair. Definitely a big fan of these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and classy as always I bought a pair of suede wedge boots like this 5 years ago and they are still in great shape. These are made even better. The new ones don't slide down my calf like the old ones but both are still my favorite tall boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cate the Great I bought a pair in black last Oct to wear around NYC in Nov. They were fantastic! I just bought a pair in Elk. They are a bit stiff at first but then soften up nicely. Sometimes the laces don't stay laced up as nice as you first did them after you break the boots in as they loosen up as you wear them and need to be retied. But I love them!
Date published: 2017-04-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a good boot I love shoes and I especially love wedges. These I love! They are super comfy and look great with everything. I have no issues with the wear and tear of these shoes. There are a few things I don't like, however, it won't stop me from getting another pair. I didn't like that if you don't lace them tight enough, they can be saggy. I don't like how the tongue of the shoe isn't attached to any part of the shoe in the middle (only at the bottom) and is only held in place with the laces. Still not stopping me from buying another pair. All in all, it's a great wedge/boot and you'll get tons of compliments on them. (which is what we all really want)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from second pair Love them so much. Got gray ones a few years ago. The most important thing I can relate about these is the color of the ELK which is two tone. To my delight it is brown and BLACK! I was hoping it wasn't two shades of brown so that I could wear them well with black which predominates my wardrobe. I am a regular 9 and Sorel 9 always fits me perfect. Reviews complain that the loops which the laces thread through break after awhile,,,a horrible consideration; however, I do not wear my footwear hard as I have so many pairs so this should not become an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I get so many compliments on them!!! They are a little big, but will work well in the event that heavy socks are needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome! I stand most of the day at my occupation, I live in rainy Pacific NW, (we had a lot of ice and snow this winter), most of all, I prefer to look *well dressed* in a standout kind of way. These boots exceeded my expectations for comfort. The are waterproof and they have traction. They look fantastic (compliments and inquiries all the time-from men and women!). Size wise, I vary between 9 and 9.5, I bought the 9.5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous boots! I've been stalking these boots for two years and finally pulled the trigger a month ago when they went on sale. They are comfortable and stylish at the same time -- a true find. Even though they are ranked as "light rain," I used them as snow boots on a recent ski trip and they performed well.
Date published: 2017-02-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slouchy but still ok I like this boot it's def. cute but what I don't like about it is how the sides of the boot slouch and it opens on the sides. If you pull the laces really tight it almost makes that issue worsen. I'd give this boot another star just for the sorel tread but instead I would like reviewers to know that the boot could have been made a little better in this area. I also have the sorel zip-up holiday boot also which stays around the leg just fine because there are no ties. Even though the sides of the boot slouch and don't stay in nice and together I would still recommend; I love my sorels for their tread on the bottom, and I feel like this is a buying point for me when it comes to sorels over other boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought a second pair I love these boots so much and wear them so often, I bought a second pair in another color. Fashion meets function: they are waterproof, warm, and stylish; great for Anchorage winters. I can wear them all day and into the night and my feet feel great. Can be dressed up or down. Best boots I have ever owned.
Date published: 2017-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and warm boot My most complimented boot. I love the height and warmth the boots provide my ever-constant freezing feet. They are worth the price. Choose the size you would for other boots or exersice shoes (not flats). For example I wear a 6/6.5 in flats or dress shoes but prefer 7s in running /hiking boots. A 7 was perfect in these boots. I can wear any thickness of socks with absolute comfort. I have extremely thin ankles yet fairly muscular calves and the lace system fit my legs perfectly (as I'm sure they would in many other leg shapes as well.) These are a great option for a tall, stylish, and warm boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cate the Great The Cate the Great wedge boot is one of Sorel's most distinguished boots. I've owned these boots for a couple years now, and they seem to get better with time. I am always complimented on them every time I wear them, and they are truly comfortable. These wedges have seen all that Portland's weather has to offer: snow, ice, rain, etc.. all the while my feet stayed warm and comfy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! These boots are a great purchase! They are stylish, functional, and comfortable. I wore them in icy/snowy conditions and they held up great. The traction is good and they fit true to size. They are well worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted these to be awesome! I love this boot. The style is eye catching and they are so comfortable. I was totally dismayed when these broke only after having them for two weeks! It was the sixth time I wore them and the lace loop broke. The lace on lace design for the loop lent to quick wear and tear with each step until the rope loop snapped. Hopefully they will continue these books but with a metal rivet lace loop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wore for days immediately, so comfy! I bought these boots because I wanted weather resistant boots for a trip to NY that were cute, warm, and comfortable. These didn't disappoint. From Monday early morning to Thursday night, these boots walked all over NYC. No blisters, no ancho feet, no problems. Loved these boots and am now a Sorel fan for life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cool boots and comfy love this boot and comfortable even though it has a heel to give me a bit of confident. the only downside of this boot is I have to keep the shoelace on. and the ankle front of the boot expand it makes my foot look wide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!! I have been eyeing these boots for 6 months now. Finally pulled the trigger and SO glad I did. The upper boot is so soft but has structure so it won't sag. The boot looks heavy but is actually very light. These do RUN BIG. I wear a 9.5, but after reading reviews, I ordered a 9. So glad I did. They fit perfectly and still have room for a thick sock. I would buy these boots again in another color without batting an eye!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! OMG, these boots are EVERYTHING!! I usually can't fit tall boots because of my large calves, but these boots are perfect. I purchased a size 8 to wear thick socks. They are amazingly comfortable, which means so much to me because the balls of my feet hurt in almost all shoes. I've gotten so many compliments from both men and women. I think I'm going to buy all three colors. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot I absolutely love this boot!!! I am short and thought it would be too tall, but the height is perfect. Looks great with leggings or skinnies! Love the color too!!! I got the grayish ones. Fits great and the quality is amazing. This is my 4th pair of Sorels and I absolutely love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tested and totally came through. Love these babies! First, the style- so unique, so edgy, so perfect. I got the pebble with the blue laces and they pretty much match everything. They already have a bit of a broken-in look due to the seriously excellent quality of the leather, (plus, I'm pretty sure they're cuter that way) so I think they're more on the casual side. So very comfortable right away. Don't fear the wedge at all. I actually find it more comfortable! I'm usually a 9.5 but got a 10 to be safe, but find i need my thick socks to secure them. I'd say they're true to size. I bought them right before a trip to Seattle where I wore them through the airports, and every single day up and down the hilly streets and in all manner and intensity of precipitation (every single day including some stretches of steady rain). It recommends use in light rain, but I assure you, these have been soaked and beat up and taken it like champs. No issues with laces or ties. I start going on and bragging about them to total strangers who even glance at them. I simply love them. Just from my trip to Seattle, I got my money's worth out of them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from love / hate I loved these boots! I wore them almost daily. So comfortable and stylish. All last season I received compliment after compliment. I was actually wishing for cold weather so I could pull them out and wear them. I have both brown and black. They go with everything... However all this ended when I noticed how frayed the cording used as grommets had become. I can't wear my black ones anymore as it is literally hanging by a thread. I looked at these boots for months before purchase as this was a big spend for me. I justified the purchase as I thought price ment quality. I thought I would be able to wear these boots for more than one season. I'm so very disappointed. Still waiting to hear about the possibility of repair and if there was something that could be used in place of the cording that would be durable... I'm afraid to wear them as I don't want them to break while I am out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Brand New and Broken I literally just got these boots. When I went to lace them up today, the lace snapped. Not just the regular shoe lace that is easy to replace, but the lace that is crafted into the boot, that the regular lace ties into. This is my second pair of Sorel boots and I'm just not seeing the quality I would expect for the prices that I've paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fuctionality and High Style These are by far the best boots I have ever had in all aspects, fit, comfort, durability and as importantly, style. Not a day goes by that I am not stopped and asked the brand. I am on my feet at work all day yet when I return home, my feet feel fine. . I highly recommend these or any Sorel boots/shoes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever Boots I've had my boots for a year and they are amazing. No problems with the laces, the ties and I wear them a lot! Compliments everytime I wear them. So comfortable and I have foot problems. Highly recommend!!
Date published: 2016-11-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from loved them, but... while the style and comfort of this boot are unique and amazing, I am sad to say that the design is such that the lace tie broke on one of my boots. I was within the one year warranty, and Sorel honored it very quickly, but I am hesitant to purchase them again, since I certainly do not want to go through the same issue a second time and potentially not be within the warranty. too much money for shoes that may or may not last for more than a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Boots! These are the most comfortable boots I own. After 8 hours traveling through airports and flights, I still had happy feet! No 'breaking in' period needed. Love the pebble and will probably buy the black too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken Lacing Issues I love the boots, love the style, love the fit BUT really hate how easily they break (not the shoelace, the cord) and the boots slouch. The lacing to tie up the boot breaks so that the laces cannot be threaded through. The first two breaks happened within three months from purchase. I sent back with the warranty and was refunded because they were unfixable. My refund ($266) wasn't enough to cover a replacement. I did not purchase the originals with a discount. The cord issue could easily be fixed if Sorel replaced the lacing cord with a stronger material. A rust proof / stainless steel metal would be ideal (like a thick tiger tail used in jewelry making). I'm pretty upset from shelling out the money for the warranty and than another chunk of money to Purchase replacement boots. However, I do appreciate that there is a warranty, but it's just such a stumbling block that the boots didn't last in the first place because this is one of the few cute options that work for women with thicker calves. I would choose a cobbler over sending back to sorel next time.
Date published: 2016-10-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lacing Broke and unwearable These boots are poorly designed. You have to pull the laces tight because it is wide in the ankle and then the lacing broke and now they are unwearable. I am just our of my warranty period and so I have had them to several repair shops and I have been told that they are not repairable. What a waste of $275.00 dollars. I do not recommend these boots to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winner I purchased 3 pairs of shoes from Sorel and these are by far the best in terms of style, quality, and accuracy of sizing. I got the pebble with the very blue laces. They fit well but just a little loose. I haven't worn them around yet, so I hope that in the winter with socks they are just right and don't wiggle around too much. Beautiful, unique, stylish boots

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cate the Great is Great Purchased the boot through Mountain Hardwear's site, loved the style. Received the boots as predicted and wore them for a night out, it is like walking on a cloud. I have bad arthritis in both knees so I wasn't sure how the height would work...but I LOVE..LOVE...LOVE the style and fit (I have big calf's and wasn't sure they would fit). They are fashionable and stylish. I will be a Sorel Gurl from now on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super slinky boot! I was surprised at how soft the leather is, like thick leather on a bound journal... it's not a "supportive" boot, but I like the softness on my calf, also very comfortable on bare legs. The footbed is extremely cushioned, not hard like some high-end boots, also I think there is a hidden platform in the wedge that makes these very comfortable, I'm able to walk for hours in these without pain. I went a half size up so I can wear boot socks, which is perfect. The toe is nice and roomy, but doesn't appear wide. These boots get lots of compliments, and I love them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile with one oversight I hate that I had to give this just a good rating, but this is an honest review! These are great boots, and even with the one flaw I still recommend them! I actually do wear them daily and during all seasons. Their style is great (I love fashion) and functionality is unparalleled. This includes winter since I no longer work outside (I spend an hour max at a time) which we easily get -30. I seal mine with wax to keep my feet dry, and this way I don't need any other boot in my life. Great tread, ankle support, and soft rubber soles are ideal for where I live. I can drive standard comfortably, hike, and ride horses! Obviously I'll be buying a new pair easily every couple of years with how mandatory they've become for my lifestyle. Now for the design oversight, which is honestly easily fixed. But for the price I didn't expect to find it within the first two months. This was before winter and before I sealed them up. Notice how you're running the laces through the loops? Well sad thing is that with daily wear those loops will break. I recommend cutting them off entirely and lacing through the leather between them( this requires no sewing or other alterations). If there was one major change that I'd recommend for the company, I'd space the leather between differently so that the laces would cross between a broader space; and just skip the cord loops altogether. As it is the flaw is easily corrected. I don't regret the purchase, but if the company wants some real testing for design flaws, I'm very good at finding them. There's one other thing that would be an amazing alteration so that they're completely waterproof. But if they want to change it, I'd expect a set for the idea. I've already given them enough, and given you all a simple solution to the main flaw that I found. This is still the best boot that I've ever seen in this price range. Well worth every penny!
