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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
Galaxy so cute, so comfy, so practical & so reasonably priced. December 29, 2014
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
