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 by Addictive I decided I wanted these when they were sold out on line in store they didn't have the red I decide to wait and sure enough they were back on line and on sale so I decided after about a week to do it so glad I did now there out of red again in my size I've ordered 4 pair of boots this year I think I have more than enough now. Sorel is addictive I can not stop at one pair of shoes or boots. My husband says I need help. Order your regular size you'll have enough room for heavy socks I tried on bare foot and a mid weight to heavy weight sock will work or no socks if your just doing a quick errand most folks wear socks in colder months anyway but if you want to wear a light boot sock you should be good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Light to moderate winter I really do like these boots. I bought them for this past winter and will definitely be using them again. I got many compliments on them, even from men. I do go outside/do a lot of walking in the winter so a good, durable winter boot was badly needed for myself. These boots do fit slightly large like other reviewers have said. I can comfortably fit 1 thick sock in it, and then it gets a little hard to squeeze my feet in if I have any more. I tried breaking the boots in wearing ankle socks but the boots kinda chaffed my ankles. They were fine after those initial first wears. I never owned real winter boots before, so they felt a little heavy and bulky. Eventually though, I got used to them. We had sort of a more mild winter this year in Minnesota, but still had days that were -20 to -30 degrees. These boots kept my feet fairly warm. I think my feet were sweating most of the time. I always wore thick socks with them. I did notice my toes feeling cold a few mornings when it was -10 to -20 below. I noticed it probably 3-5 minutes while standing outside. So like the description, the best use is for light to moderate winter/snow. It's definitely an in-between boot (between just fashion and true winter boots). April 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love love these boots!! I could not have ordered or received these boots at a better time! They came the night before a snowstorm in Colorado. I tromped through calf tall snow and no water or dampness was felt on the inside. The next snow was heavy and wet and I even stepped into a water puddle while scooping my driveway and still nothing came into the boot!! I ordered true to size based on reviews, a size 7. I could have gone to a size 6.5. With that being said I'm sure I will enjoy the space if I ever feel the need to wear super thick socks. These boots are very comfortable! Wore them all day at work with no issues, and I got lots of compliments!! I would definitely order them again!! March 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cool Design!But not very warm! I love these boots!The design is very cool and the colors and the different patterns match together very well! I usually wear a 7 but these boots fit big and so I bought a 6.5. They are still a little bit long and wide but I will wear them with a thick pair of socks because they are not warm as I was thinking! March 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Glacy Explorer - love it- but not for icy conditions I love the comfort and look of this boot. It is a great cold weather boot that has super cushion and warmth. The only reason it's a 4 and not 5 is functionality on ice. NOTE: This is not a boot for icy conditions. I have found (the hard way) that there is very little to no traction on ice. February 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and Non-Slip Yes, they do run large. I ordered my regular size and added a sheepskin insole and they're perfect now, I can even wear them without socks. I especially appreciate that the soles are non-slip and do a terrific job on icy surfaces. They keep my feet warm on two mike walks with my dogs on our snowpacked dirt roads. February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots! I ordered these boots as a second, more casual pair in addition to another pair of sorel boots that I have for sub-zero Colorado trips we make every year. I am a true size 11-1/2, which makes it hard to find boots that fit. Typically, they are too small in an 11 and too big in a 12. But, the long lacing system of this boot compensates for the larger size, and fit me great. I have just enough extra room to wiggle my toes, and the heel DID NOT slip. The Explorer boot is super comfortable. I've worn them all day several times, and even drove in then for 8 hours another time. I didn't care for the mustard yellow laces, so I replaced them with black laces. These boots look really cute with jeans tucked in, and are light-weight to wear for long periods of time. Makes it easy to walk in, too. I'd definitely recommend these for warmth and fashion combined. February 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adorable boots! Love love love the boots! Comfy, cool, fun, warm, unique. Thanks! February 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these boots. For 2 years now I have wanted these boots. Finally purchased for myself, love them. They are super comfy, I have flat feet and can only wear shoes with an arch and these are great. They are super warm and very true to size. I was worried about that because so many conflicting reports. So order your size. Have not wore them in the snow because in Chicago we haven't had any since I got them. It has been cold and they have been wonderful. February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfort to a T! Love my new boots. Living in cold Wisconsin, where we get plenty of snow, these do the trick for comfort, style, warmth and quality. I'm a total Sorely fan, as I own several pair. I've got slip on styles as well as boots. I've never been disappointed. February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! These boots are amazing. I have 4 pairs and they are all perfect and comfortable. They are the warmest winter boots I've ever had and water has never come through. I would recommend these to anyone! January 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is perfect This boot is perfect. It is very true to size and not too narrow nor wide. It is very warm and comfortable to walk in. I have gotten so many compliments about it. I love it ! It is definitely worth investing in. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THIS BOOT I just received this boot and they are so great. They are so comfortable, stylish, and they fit true to size. I absolutely love them and you will too if you are looking for a great boot. Love, love, love. January 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them Love the boots nice n comfy haven't worn them in bad weather yet n I went 1/2 Sz down n the fit is perfect. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous Boots! I work in a hardware store so I needed a pair of lightweight tough boots. These boots are both and more, they fit true to size, are not bulky or heavy and they are comfy standing in for many hours!! January 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This boot has great features. Perfect boot for cold and snow. I live in the Lake Erie show belt and need a boot that is comfortable, warm, and adjustable. The laces make for a perfect fit, and the cord at the top seals out the snow. I am so glad I ordered the red. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purcahse I never write reviews, but these boots are amazing. Growing up in Michigan and now living in Iowa, good snow boots are essential. They are true to fit, warm, and very comfortable. The ties allow you to wear different thickness of socks and still allow your feet to breathe and not feel scrunched. Great purchase. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute I bought these as a gift. She loves them. They will be worn as a winter and after snowboarding boot. She says they are comfortable and warm. She asked for them in red. They look really good. December 29, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Very slippery on ice and snow. Nothing "non slip" about them. Also, my feet are cold in them. your "fleece" description is off base. Put some real wool or "real" sheepskin in them. Price does not justify quality. Boo December 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glacy Boot LOVE these boots! These are the best boots I have ever owned. They are 100% waterproof, and yet stylish. They are light weight and comfortable. Run true to my sneaker size, and .5 size bigger than my normal boot size. December 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Work and stylish comfort My second winter in Colorado and I knew I needed tall comfy boots for my commute to and from work. To my surprise I comfortably worked on my feet all day with style and grace. I can't wait till next winter to shop Sorel again. December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these These boots are super comfortable and very warm I especially love the look of them December 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely love them! I ordered them in my size but they still have a little bit of wiggle room for thicker socks, so I would recommend keeping to your size. They are super cute! (I get tons of compliments) and incredibly warm (so you almost don't need to wear thicker socks) December 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stoked about Sorel Just received in the mail and might wear the boots to bed! My foot size is 6.5 / 7, I bought the 7 and wore my heavy wool socks and it was perfect. Can't wait for snow, but also great to wear around town. December 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not warm enough I love the look & how these suede boots are waterproof and they are super comfortable! But surprisingly, I think they aren't warm enough for Chicago winter weather. These boots are more for Fall than for winter in my opinion. Unfortunately, I will be exchanging them for a warmer pair on Monday. December 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Boot I just bought these in Black in my normal size 10, but ended up returning for 10.5 as they ran small.. Im disappointed they dont come with colored laces like the all black w/blue laces they have. But overall LOVE LOVE all the Sorel Boots I have.. December 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous and stylish I love these boots. I bought in red (which is not my go to color) I just have several other sorel boots in black. I get so many compliments on these boots and the color.. I'm actually going to order the black pair anyways... I love them that much!!! November 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these boots! I was hesitant to buy them without trying them on (thinking they may make my feet look huge) but I am glad I made the purchase. I love these boots. It hasn't been too cold here in Wisconsin, so we'll see how they fair throughout the winter as it gets colder, but my guess is they will be keeping my feet toasty warm! November 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
