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.

Women’s Glacy™ Explorer Boot 4.5 5 119 119
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Great choice I love these boots. I ordered an 8.5 based on reviews I read that said to order a half size smaller than your regular size (I am a 9). I am glad I did. I think I could have even gotten away with a size 8, but I will just be sure to wear thick socks. Warm, comfy, cute- I am very happy with my purchase. March 1, 2014
Love My New Boots...Cute, Cozy, Warm & Dry! I spent most of Chicago's 2014 Polar Vortex winter in older boots that leaked...after two failed repair attempts, I finally gave in and ordered these boots from Sorel. I was a little hesitant about the bright laces...but now I LOVE them. Be ready to answer the question "WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE?!" They attract compliments often. As other reviewers have noted, the boots do seem to run large. I usually wear 9.5 and ordered a 9. They are still quite roomy. So happy with my purchase!! March 1, 2014
Feels like a sneaker Great boot and really comfortable. March 1, 2014
Stylish and Practical! I bought these for my 20 year old daughter for those frequent snowy days in Connecticut. She was skeptical at first, but upon receiving them just in time for yet another Northeastern snowstorm, she LOVED them. They are easy to put on, comfortable, stylish, and they really perform well on snow and ice. Her friends were envious because they're all wearing duck boots. Thanks to other reviewers, I did size down, so they fit perfectly. March 1, 2014
Like walking on pillows! I love these boots! I wear an 8 1/2 to 9, so I ordered an 8 1/2 and they are great with medium thick socks. The best thing is that I have large calves (15 1/2") and they fit my calves with room to fold and tuck in my pants. They are very cushy and offer a little arch support (not a ton, but then I have high arches). I would highly recommend these! February 28, 2014
Love these boots! I absolutely love these boots. They are extremely comfortable, warm, waterproof, and cute. I have gotten many compliments on them. They run big and wish I had ordered 1/2 size down, but when I wear really thick socks they are okay. Sorel boots are worth every penny. February 28, 2014
Awesome boots! I bought these boots for a trip to the Sea Caves in Northern Wisconsin, the wind chills were 20 below. I got these boots the day we left, and, WOW, my feet were warm and dry in the 3 mile trek to and from the Sea Caves, thru snow & ice. They are super comfortable too, almost like wearing tennis shoes, I am very impressed. Many reviewers talk about how HUGE the boots run, I wear an 8.5, and, was afraid to size down because I've had to return 4 different brands of boots this year. These in my size 8.5 were perfect, they were NOT huge by any means. I was able to wear a nice pair of warm wool socks, had no slipping on the heel or anything. I could not get a super thick pair of socks on with them, but, the wool winter socks were perfect. I highly recommend these boots for warmth, super cold temps and comfort!! Well and they are super CUTE too! Thanks Sorel!! February 28, 2014
glacy explorer boot is AWESOME!!! these boots are AWESOME!! definitely true to size and would recommend to anyone looking for comfort as well as style for the cold months that we have February 27, 2014
Perfect snow boots! These boots definitely run large- ordered an 8 but my feet were swimming in them. Just received the 7.5 and they fit perfectly. They keep your feet very warm (much more so than Uggs and other brands). I highly recommend them! February 27, 2014
Clouds I was so excited when I received my package and just couldn't wait to get it opened. I read other reviews and did order half a size smaller. The boots were still roomy which was perfect for doubling up on socks. Wearing them while walking the streets of NYC made me think I was walking on clouds. I love my boots. February 27, 2014
Sadly, way too big! Although I was very excited about receiving these boots amidst Snowmaggedon, they were unfortunately too BIG! I read the reviews before ordering and most people said to go down at least a 1/2 size. Typically, I wear a size 8, so I ordered a 7.5, but unfortunately still too big. I would have exchanged for a 7, but they are sold out! Better luck for next year, I hope! Other than the fit, the boot itself is very cozy and warm, it also fits well and is quite comfortable! My only complaint would be that because the tongue doesn't quite lay flat to the shin, I'm not sure this boot would work well unless worn with skinny pants/leggings/jeans. February 27, 2014
The Best Boots ever after trying 3 different pairs of boots, these were the best I could have ever found....they are a perfect fit for my slightly wide feet, they are very comfortable, and very warm and waterproof. I would tell anyone thinking about buying these to do it!! February 27, 2014
Very cute Snow boots!! When I first opened the box it wasn't what I expected; I'm not crazy about the blue laces and hoped there were alternative ones provided (there wasn't), the majority of it is canvas and the faux fur is purely decoration around the top and not completely lining the boot so I was disappointed. I finally got to wear them today and I absolutely LOOOOVE them!! Although we only got a few inches of snow, these boots kept my feet warm and dry. At first they felt a bit slippery in the slush but once the snow really started to accumulate I felt more secure. I'm normally a 9-9 1/2 and I read all of the other posts but I got the size 9. Yes they are a tad big, but I think an 8 1/2 would've been too short for me. I put a memory foam insole in and they're perfect! They are very fashionable too! I'm still not crazy about the blue laces but so far I love the boots. I think the worst of this winter is behind us so I won't REALLY get to test them out but when I do, if my opinion changes I will re-post. February 26, 2014
Love these boots! I ordered a size 6 1/2 although I am typically a size 7 (depends on the shoe), and the boots fit perfectly. They kept my feet warm during winter camping, and I love how they look. February 26, 2014
Great snow boot Comfortable, warm and water resistant. Has very good overall support. Just had to order a 1/2 size smaller than my usual size 10 Boot is easy to get on and off. Fun style for a functional snow boot February 26, 2014
Super cute, and warm! I am a true size 9.5, but generally buy a size 10 boot. After reading review, I ordered a size 9 (yes, 1/2 size smaller than my true size). They fit just great, with plenty of "sock" room. Calf of boot fits well over jeans or leggings, also. Ankle area is also nice and roomy and makes driving and ankle bending easy. Overall a nice boot... Very happy with my second pair of Sorels! February 25, 2014
Great looking, warm Read the reviews before ordering, and the ladies were right need to down size half size. Since receiving boots the weather has gotten better in Upstate NY, should have ordered earlier in the year. February 25, 2014
For snowy days I am not so in love with these boots. I think it's the bright blue laces and the fact that I feel like I am wearing a ski boot. I also feel like it's more for young ages and not 30something year olds. I do like that this boot is waterproof (wore in while it was snowing pretty hard and VERY windy). This boot kept my feet warm and dry. It worked...so I like it for that reason. It does run bit, I got a 9 and I would normally wear a 9.5. February 25, 2014
Warm And Cute! I live in WI and we've had a brutal winter, and these boots have been great! They are cute but they serve the purpose of keeping my feet warm and dry. I am usually an 8 and these are a little big but they fit just fine with thick socks. They are extremely comfortable! I would definitely by another pair of Sorels! February 25, 2014
knock out boots love love boots get compliments on boots all the time. the inside sole bouncy and ultra comfortable . sizing though i wear a 8.5 to a 9 these boots do run large so if ordering take your lowest normal size and drop down a half size. i however ordered an 8.5 knowing i would wear my thickest winter socks . all is good im extremely happy . they are warm good for -35 rating February 24, 2014
Love these boots!! I love these boots- the color, the fit- so comfy. They do fit true to size. So nice to have to do so little work to get boots on and off. Tighten the laces to where you want them and you are good to go. So nice for a dog owner who has to take boots on and off frequently. Just pull them on and you are ready to go. Definitely a purchase I would make again and encourage others to as well! February 24, 2014
Love these boots! I wish I would have gotten these boots earlier in the season! The are warm, waterproof and the perfect height!! My feet were actually sweating when I was outside shoveling in 19 degree weather. I made my sister buy a pair as well!! They run slightly big. February 24, 2014
Like walking on clouds! I got these to walk with my kids to and from school, which is about 1.5 miles away, so 3 miles round trip, twice a day is 6 miles everyday in the rain/snow. I read the reviews and ordered a full size smaller than I normally wear (I normally wear an 8.5 so I ordered a 7.5). They fit perfectly and they are very comfortable. They're relatively lightweight for the sturdy construction. I find that I get plenty of flex and movement while walking and they are still sturdy enough to keep me warm and dry through all that walking. I purchased the black boots, and the one thing I didn't take in to account is that the exterior is very nice suede that attracts the hair from my yellow lab like a magnet! But they really are the PERFECT winter boot! February 24, 2014
Perfect for Snowy Outdoors Sports I just wore these boots on a snowshoeing excursion in Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park, CO. They were absolutely perfect. I usually wear an 8.5 or 9, so I ordered an 8, after reading the reviews. They were a little big still but after I tightened the laces and put on heavy socks, they worked out great. Actually, having a little bit of room was helpful with the snowshoes, so my toes weren't crammed in the front. It was about 20 degrees and we were trekking through at least 3 feet of snow and my toes/feet never felt even a tiny hint of cold or wetness. Definitely recommend for anyone who loves snowy outdoor sports! February 24, 2014
Love these boots! I work at a ski resort and I was looking for a boot to keep my feet warm and these are super warm. The first day I wore my ski socks cause I didn't know how warm they would really be and it was too much. I have been wearing my regular socks with them instead. I followed the advice of some of the other reviews and ordered them half a size smaller, I normally wear an 8 and ordered a 7 and a half. They fit perfectly. The boots are super comfy and warm, I didn't even really need to break them in. I would totally recomend these. I have gotten several compliments on them too! February 23, 2014
big but maybe warm These were so big! I'm usually a size 8-8.5 and I got these in an 8 based on reviews of them being big. But I could have gone down to a 7.5. I didn't bother to exchange them I just returned them because they were also very intense looking and clunk a bit but seemed like they'd be warm. I'm not sure how waterproof they'd be. The bottoms are very good I think for traction. But I didn't even wear them outside my house because I wanted to return them. A little clunky and look like intense winter boots because they are large. But they aren't all around bad, also have a cool look to them. February 22, 2014
Love love love Love the boots! Took them ice fishing and they kept my feet warm and dry. A little on the big side but it leaves room for thick socks. I wear an 8 or 8.5 and bought an 8. I probably could've gone with a 7.5 but 8 is fine. I definitely recommend these! They're cute, light, and durable. From Colorado February 22, 2014
perfect fit These boots are made for walking. They are supposed to fit exactly the way they are. People all said go a size smaller. Not true the style is loose for a reason. They can be worn for snow shoeing and you do not want tight. They also can be worn all day with no socks or socks. They are perfect! Thank you. February 22, 2014
So cute! These are so cute and so comfortable! These boots are so comfy! Very true to size and so great in the snow! I love them! February 21, 2014
Amazing boots!!!! I couldn't have asked for a better pair of winter boots. I live in Chicago and this current winter has been either inches of snow or freezing temperatures. These boots have kept my feet both warm and dry in all circumstances. For instance, just two days ago I spent an hour and a half shoveling out our driveway…my pants were wet, my coat was wet, everything was just cold and wet. But when i took my boots off my feet and socks were completely dry and still warm. It is true when they say these do probably run a half size larger…but wearing thicker socks helps this issue. Overall, these are my favorite pair of boots i have ever owned and so worth the money!!!!!!!! February 20, 2014
