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 Impressed These boots are perfect for winter. Stylish, comfy, and warm. The price was reasonable. And the quality is great. I usually wear a 12/13. The 12 fits great with thick socks. I will be ordering again. October 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase I have not had a chance to wear this boots out yet as the weather hasn't called for it. However, I tried them on the day they arrived and I'm thrilled. They are warm and light weight. I was actually very surprised at how light weight they are as I expect most winter boots to be bulky and heavy. I think these boots are going to be perfect for another hardcore New England winter! October 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful It is not winter yet so I cannot give a complete review. However the boots are beautiful great quality fit true to size look very warm September 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Boots Ever!! These boots are just amazing!!! They fit true to size and you still have room if you wear thick socks. They are great and very comfortable in cold weather and especially snow!! August 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOMEN’S GLACY- EXPLORER BOOT Only regret I have is that I wish I had ordered these earlier so I could have enjoyed them for the entire winter season! The fit is slightly larger than actual size. I believe it's because the front is very wide. I have wide feet and usually wear a 8.5-9 but ordered a size 8.5 (after reading all the reviews) and there's still about 1/2 inch room which is perfect although I think a size 8 would have sufficed. Boots are super comfortable and warm. I've shoveled snow for about 2hrs at a time and my feet stayed warm and dry. Best of all, they are super stylish and I have gotten many compliments. I plan on getting them in different colors and highly recommend this product! March 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic boots! I bought these about a year and a half ago for a trip to Colorado and was impressed. My feet stayed warm the entire time, and they had good traction on the snow. I never waterproofed mine, but that hasn't seemed to be an issue at all. I live in Texas and i usually wear them on cold, rainy days and they're perfect. They fit well, although I would get a size down from your normal shoe size. I normally wear a 7 1/2 but a 7 in these boots is perfect. March 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is The Boot I am a Chicagoan with a collective two mile walking commute every day and have nasty weather conditions mixed with some serious cold. My feet are not only dry and warm to the point of sweaty but I feel like I am walking on a cloud while wearing these boots. They are more comfortable then my walking shoes. They fit perfect and fit my large calves even with pants tucked in (I typically have trouble finding high boots to fit my calves). Some people complain of the boots being too big and their feet slipping but that is the nature of a warm snow boot to keep your foot warm. They aren't supposed to fit exactly like a glove. I will only wear these boots from now on - no other boot will be purchased. Worth every penny and holding up well. Great great product Sorel. February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glacy These boots are everything you want In a cold weather/snow boot beautiful,comfortable,warm,and waterproof money well spent! February 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and warm! These are the warmest boots I've ever worn. I've got plenty of toe room. I ordered my true size and it game me extra room in the toe area sonof you don't loose shoes, I'd go a half siE down but I like extra toe room and these totally work for me! LOVE THEM!! February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy Boots that Fit!!! Love my new boots. They do run alittle big, but heck in this cold weather an extra pair of socks or heavy socks work great. They keep my feet dry and warm. Got alot of compliments too! February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfort Love the boots they are so cute and very very comfortable, good support. Glad I listened to the reviews and got a half size smaller I normally wear an 8 so I ordered a 7.5, so happy, they fit perfect even with a thicker sock. January 31, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Glacy Explorer Saddle Raft The Color That was sent to me wasn't what was advertise online I'm Very disappointed: I got a grey looking color an not the Dark brown Look I asked for January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Size down! This boot is extremely comfortable, durable, weatherproof, and easy to slip on/off; it has served me well during this Wisconsin winter. Many of the reviews on this site are conflicting in terms of how one should determine the appropriate size to order (and fit tends to be a matter of personal preference), but in my usual 8.5, I had at least a half-inch of extra room in the toe (even with thick socks), which wasn't comfortable for me. I went down to an 8, and can feel the boundaries of the boot on all sides of my feet (comfortably), which makes them feel more secure and easier to walk in. So happy I purchased this style, but even happier that I ended up sizing down. January 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and super attractive These boots are very warm - I have needed only light socks and been Completely toasty and also dry in snow and ice. The flat sole of these boots fit my foot much better than the more shaped design of many of the other Sorel boots I tried. I order 1/2 size larger than I wear and they are just a little big which is how I like my snow boots to fit. They are easy to slip into without untying the laces. And I have gotten many compliments on them already! January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by THESE BOOTS ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!! I've had many different brands of boots and these are definetly the best....I don't wear socks with them and they are still warm. Everyone comments on them wherever I go. I love the color and the fact that you can slip them on without untying them...I love these boots..Perhaps next year I will get a different color.. January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by COMFORTABLE, VIBRANT, SATISFIED CUSTOMER I'm from Oklahoma, where our winter's are not as abusive as the north or eastern states. In my opinion this style is very compatible with my surrounding habitat lol. This is my first pair of Sorel's ever and boy do I loooove my boots! I'm so glad I got them when I did back in November because now all sizes are sold out in the Vino, except size 6. Actually I wouldn't mind having all three colors of this style! I usually buy sz 12's, but after reading reviews I decided to get a sz 11. I'm glad I did because it's a perfect fit! These boots are super duper comfortable! I feel like I'm walking on tempur-pedic pillows! I'm constantly getting complimented on my boots and always notice that other people notice my boots haha. The look is stylish, eye catching, and it's easily observable these boots aren't a cheap brand! I got my 9 yr old a pair of Joan's in the girls section and she said teachers and classmates love her boots! So awesome! Thank you Sorel!!!! Can't wait to scope out my next pair :) :) January 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by TRUE TO SIZE I'm in love with my new Sorels! I am pretty bummed that I listened to all of the other reviews and ordered a half size smaller. I wish I would have got my normal size, which is 8 1/2. I have pretty narrow feet and after reading lots of reviews, I decided to get an 8...Bad decision. My big toes touch and now I have to pay the shipping to return..oh well. January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Ever These are the best boots I have ever owned. The fit is true to size, the boots are super warm, great traction, and to top it all off adorable! We are experiencing -30 below temps (with wind chill) and when I walk across the cold parking lot tundra at work or stores my feet stay hot! January 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the way boot looks and feels When I seen these boots I fell in love with them they are so awesome, I wear a size 6 and they fit perfectly too I was a little worried because of everyone's comments about then being too big but when I recieved mine in the mail today they fit so perfectly and they are so comfortable too, you will not be disappointed! January 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable walking boots If you want a comfortable and light weight warm walking boot give this boot a try. I did alot of online research before purchasing these WOMEN’S GLACY™ EXPLORER BOOT. I don't like the normal rubber bottom sorel boots because the dig into my ankels and are super heavy. These boots are very comfortable! I walked around Chicago and my feet never hurt me once. I walked through a little snow and my feet didn't get cold. I did slide around when walking on ice so they don't have amazing traction. I ordered a size 9 (normally wear a 9.5 in tennis shoes) and they fit very well with one pair of thick socks. You could probably wear two pairs of socks once you stretch the boot out a little bit. January 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not for large calfs I loved these boots, but I had to return them. I usually wear a 7.5 but ordered a 7.0 based on other reviews and glad I did a 7.0 was even a little big. Unfortunately I had to return these boots because I have a large calf and these did not fit comfortably around my calf area. My calf is about 17 in and these boots fit snug around them and I couldn't tuck my jeans into the boot. So ladies with a larger calf you will probably want a shorter boot. I ended up getting a different pair that I Love and work much better for me I got Sorel 1964 pac graphic 13 - vino grizzly bear. December 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Galaxy so cute, so comfy, so practical & so reasonably priced. December 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sorel I really like the boots. I got them as a gift and they are warm, we just need to get some snow now! December 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great boot I am currently a dog walker in Denver, CO and I'm excited to wear these boots when it gets a little colder! I have yet to try them in the snow, but they are very comfortable to walk in- pretty good arch support, flexible, and lightweight. Seems to be very well made, the only problem for me is the fit. I usually wear a size 9.5, but I ordered a size 9 because I read they run large. The width fit great, but my toes hit the end. I exchanged for a 9.5, length is great but now too wide. This is not ideal, but I think a pair of thick wool socks will fix that. Overall, this seems like a great boot that's super cute and well made! December 3, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not as warm and waterproof I tried to buy these boots last season, but the sizing doesn't match the size guide. I usually wear 8.5-9 and I bought them last year twice, first in 9, then in 8.5 and both times they were too large. By the time I returned both, the size 8 boots were sold out. I finally purchased locally at the start of the season. I have worn them for 3 weeks now and my toes have gotten cold and they got wet when walking through snow. I was disappointed because they fit nice now that I got the right size and they are cute. November 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love these boots! My third pair of sorels in my lifetime and sorels have always kept my feet warm and dry! Love that they have a thick bottom so I'm taller and not too close to the cold ground and snow. Love that they are tall on my calves and snow can't get in. Love I can wear them with pants tucked in or over! Love that they have arch support. Love the colorful laces but I could change them out if I get bored. I got the black ones. Perfect for a freezing cold snowy MN winter. I've gotten lots of compliments on them too. I was hesitant about buying them because of the price but I'm glad I purchased them. November 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing boots These boots are great. I ordered a half size smaller like other reviews said and they fit perfect even with heavy socks. I usually wear an 8.5 and I ordered an 8. Perfect size. I even biked with these and my feet were comfortable and warm. I get a lot of compliments on them too. I will order again in the future! November 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super cute and trendy. The only not so perfect comment I will make is that they run slightly small. I reviewed others reviews and chart and came up with the decision of getting a size 8. (I'm a size 8-8.5) and the 8 it's a little small. For the rest this boot is gorgeous. Great materials and super comfy. Not worn in the snow yet, but they seem good for that too. Warm enough to keep your feet from being cold. It's a great buy. I recommend. I wanted a winter-snow boot that looked different than other snow-winter boots, but to give me the protection I need. This one meets my expectations. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by These boots are made for walking... As a college student, I needed boots that could be worn for the entire day, as well as walked a fair amount in. These keep my feet warm, are comfortable, and are great for walking. Highly recommend them! Love that they're waterproof too, as MN has some pretty slushy weather at times. November 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by CUTE!! I haven't been able to wear them out in the snow yet as the season has not begun. But, they run a little big. I wear a 7 and bought a 6.5 since all reviews said they run half size larger. Feels like walking on pillows. I have a larger calf and boots are always tough for me to zip. These slipped right on over skinny jeans with ease! October 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I"m pleased so far a bit stiff but ok. Was looking for warmth. Most of the bitter bitter cold had passed when I ordered them but one day I did wear them outside for about an hr. w/wool stocks at only 10 degrees. My feet stayed warm or at least didn't get cold. Next winter will be the true test. Pretty true to size or maybe a bit roomy but what I wanted so I could double up socks if necessary. March 26, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cute but wet I thought these boots were so cute when they arrived! I loved the style and colors. These boots were really warm. However I wouldn't recommend them if you are walking in any heavy snow or puddles. I stepped into a puddle and water leaked in at my toes! These shouldn't be advertised as waterproof. I returned them. Maybe mine were defective but buyer beware! March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm In Love!! I wasn't so sure about spending the $$ on a pair of boots or a brand that I've never worn before but I just fell in love with these boots! The are extremely comfortable, warm, and surprisingly easy to put on. They are great in the cold/snowy/wet winter that hit Chicago and I was SOOO happy to have them when I take the puppies out for walks!! Highly Recommend! They are a little big, but I like that they are wide since I can wear thicker socks. Great investment!! March 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Explorer boots Rock! I was so skeptical when i bought these online because some of the reviews were not good. Well let me tell you i love these boots. Completely waterproof, amazingly comfortable and fit perfectly. A little loose around the ankle but i wear thick socks with mine so its not a problem. I love these boots!! March 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love this boot As of now I only walk. These boots are great for walking in the snow. Love that they are waterproof and high enough to keep my pants dry. Oh yeah, I'm a big fan of the look and bright laces! Very comfortable. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Winter Boot My old boots were a little too high for driving and this winter has been worse than I was expecting. Its a comfortable boot, its just flexible enough, and they look great. I had read reviews saying it was basically true to size, the only reason I'm putting fits slightly large is because I'm a 5.5 or a 6. I ordered a 6, and probably should have ordered the 5.5 in this case. So this rating is more of a tip for people who always vary depending on brand like me. I'm not exchanging them though, because they fit enough that they won't slip once I'm wearing them over jeans or with thicker socks. March 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too big Liked the style -- but very big in the heel box-- and throughout. I ordered a half size smaller and will have to return. Hoping to find a pair of Sorels that will work. :) March 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warm and comfortable Purchased these to go on a ski trip and basically wore them the entire week we were there. They are comfortable to walk in and kept my feet warm and dry. I would definitely recommend! March 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice boot Very nice boot. Length is about a half-size too long but width very large. Foot wallows around in boot but could not go any smaller due to length. March 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs too big but keeps my feet really warm I wear a size 9 in women for my sneakers and my feet is wide. I ordered a size 8.5 because a lot of the reviews said that the boots run too big. They were true. My feet shift around even I ordered a half size smaller. It really bothered me at first because it takes more effort to walk but I'm starting to get the hang of it. I like that the inside of the boot has cushion. The boot really do keep my feet warm -- TOO WARM. My socks are usually wet when I take them off by the end of the day. It's comfortable on a really cold winter day. I haven't walked in a puddle yet so I am not sure how well the water proofing is. March 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and waterproof I was trying to go skiing for the first time and I got a recommendation to go with SOREL's. I am glad I did! I love this boot. My friends were all wanting a pair after they saw mine. I spent what felt like a year reading reviews and I am glad I listened and got a 1/2 size smaller. I am always a true fit for a 9 in a sneaker, but got an 8.5 in these boots, which was perfect with a pair of wool socks. I haven't trekked through a foot of snow yet, but they did great on the slopes and walking through slush in disgusting parking lots. March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I was looking for…... These boots are warm, very comfortable, and eye-catching. They look like they will handle any Northeast winter messiness and spring melt. They look great apres-ski, too! Based on the reviews of others, I ordered a half-size down, and couldn't be happier. They have plenty of room for a heavier sock. There is still a bit of room in the heel, but it is not bothersome. Toe box and width are kind to my arthritic feet. March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PRODUCT! Love love love this boot. It's very comfortable and warm. Enough room to wear a little thicker sock. Love the look and have had many compliments!!! March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love I never write reviews but worth it here. There are extremely warm, so comfortable they feel like I'm walking on air, and I get complimented on them constantly. The size runs a little big but it doesn't bother me to have a little extra room for thick socks. March 6, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor fit i was so excited to find these boots available since we've had so much snow this winter and i needed boots suitable for snow shoeing. Unfortunately they dug into my ankles so much i couldn't stand wearing them. they definitely run big and perhaps they were simply too large but since I had to pay for shipping in both directions (I returned them) i didn't want to waste the money to order a smaller size. March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm & Cozy Pennsylvania was hit with 6 degree temps, and I have to walk my dogs 5 or 6 times each day. My feet finally stayed warm and these boots are so comfortable. March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit I have very high arches and these boots were made for this. They are easy on and off and fit beautifully. Comfortable even over my slightly larger size calf. I feel that I have a great boot that looks good and keeps me warm. So glad I found these. March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Explorer Boot I went to the ski resort and this boot kept me warm, comfortable and dry. First when I saw it, I thought I wouldn't fit because I have a wide calves but it was actually fine. I am size 9.5, so after reading the reviews, I bought it 0.5 size bigger and I am glad I did, otherwise I would have to return it. My only complaint, it's not easy to put them on (it takes me about 10 min) but once you do, you feet will be warm, comfortable and dry. March 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warm Boot The boot definitely runs big. I'm normally a 7.5-8 shoe size. I got a 7 and even then there's still wiggle room. The boot itself is great though! Warm & cute. March 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Them Love them.Should of got a half size smaller,they run a little large., but still ok. Nice and warm.I work at a school,everyone was loving them,especially the little girls! March 1, 2014
