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.

My new favorite boot! I ordered these in my normal boot size and they still have enough room for heavy snowboard/wool socks. The laces allow for a relaxed/loose fit so I haven't taken these on any steep hiking trails. They're definitely more of an everyday winter boot rather than a performance or hiking boot. They are surprisingly comfortable as these have a substantial sole with the perfect mix of bounce and stiffness. I love walking around in these indoors as well as outside on snowy trails at the park with my dog! I had my doubts about them being waterproof but I've worn these everyday this week in the snow and my feet have stayed dry. The first day I wore these I got three compliments on how cute they were! My friend saw them and ordered a pair as well! They look super cute with leggings or yoga pants. My only complaint about these boots is that my toes don't stay as warm as I thought they would, but my feet and hands are constantly cold due to poor circulation so that may be just my issue. Overall, I love these boots and wish I bought two pairs! I might just have to purchase the taller boots later this winter for really snowy days. January 3, 2015
Really Love These Boots These boots are so cute and comfortable. I brought these boots exclusively on my recent trip to Tahoe as they are so cute and functional for going out, to the slopes, apres ski and just walking/shopping around. I found them to have good traction on the sidewalk and in the snow BUT beware on a finished floor. They can get slppery indoors if coming in from a wet environment. The color is so vibrant yet stylish. I will use these for many years to come. January 2, 2015
Amazing boots Received these boots for Christmas. Never have worn Sorel boots, was delighted to find that they fit my wide foot. Better yet is the support, very comfortable. Highly recommend these boots. January 1, 2015
jwood The boots is so remarkable that I purchased a second pair in a different color. Warm, comfortable and stylish. I have no complaints about the boot. December 25, 2014
Comfortable These boots are soo comfortable and warm. I have them in the deep water, and they look really nice December 24, 2014
Excellent Needed something to keep my feet toasty but not a heavy boot. These are great, take size 8 and still have room for a heavy pair of winter socks. I ordered the deep water and the color is beautiful. Well made and warm. Glad I ordered them! December 24, 2014
Love the Explorer Glacy shortie for women This is my fourth pair of sorel boots. They fit perfectly. Nice and warm. Color is fantastic. Waiting for the color "Deep Water" to be restocked. Buy this style of sorel boots. You will not be disappointed. December 24, 2014
My winter 'go-to' boots This is my 2nd pair of Sorel boots. They're cute, stylish, and cushy. I prefer to wear my boots w/o socks (ala UGG), but these are better with socks. The inside edge of the liner has a sharpness to it that irritates my foot and will make a blister w/o socks. The boots were better after the first day. I haven't owned shoes that benefited from 'breaking in' in over a decade. These run a hair short. I'm 6' and wear a size 12. So shoes either fit or they don't. My right toe touches a bit when my foot slides forward, which can cause me whole-body discomfort on a long day. I try to tie the laces tighter to keep my feet from sliding forward, but the lower part of the boot widens, leaving just the ankle snug. The boots are very cushy, which I really like, need, and appreciate! However, the nubby soles don't have as good traction as my other pair that have more of a wavy tread. All-in-all, I'm thinking about ordering a second pair for when these wear out in the future! December 23, 2014
awesome!!! I love these boots!!! Seriously they are more comfortable than my uggs. I live in a ski resort town and we get quite a bit of snow. My feet stay totally dry and warm. I always get a compliments on how cute they are. Definitely reccomend! December 19, 2014
Great boots These boots are as lightweight as can be while still being warm and waterproof with pretty good traction on snow and ice December 19, 2014
Love them Comfortable from the box. I wore these all day in freezing snow and was warm. So excited that they are cute, comfortable and warm. They are so light I didn't feel like I had snow boots on. Ordered my regular shoe size and they are great with my socks. I loosened the laces to get heavier socks on too. The vino color is great! December 18, 2014
Great! Im usually a size 6 but after pregnancy my feet are a bit bigger. I ordered size 6 anyways because there were people saying they run bigger and i usually buy shoes size 6 even after pregnancy because 7 is too big. They were ok but slightly small, they felt too tight. So I ordered another pair size 6.5 and they are great! They don't feel tight not a bit, they even feel big, lot of space for socks. I would say they run true to size then. Comfortable and they look awesome. They don't feel heavy and they don't look big on your feet like so many other boots. December 17, 2014
Fits my hard-to-fit foot I always have trouble finding shoes and boots that fit. My foot is a size 7, but I have a wide foot and a high instep which means I can not even get my foot into most shoes. I have to buy a size 8 1/2W or 9W to accommodate the width of my foot and ankle. I wanted to buy a pair of boots that slip on without laces, but even a 10 would not go on my foot. I did find a pair at a local store that fit, but I was afraid they would not be warm enough. I took a chance and bought Sorels online since I had heard so many good things. I ordered size 9, since they do not come in wide. They fit great, and I am very pleased. As one other customer commented they are a little stiff but I think they will loosen up. I haven't worn them yet, but this is early winter in Minnesota and I will have many chances. I am hoping that this is the last pair of boots I will own. December 17, 2014
Best Boot Purchase ever! I decides to splurge a little on myself this year and get a pair of Sorel boots. All my friends highly recommended the company. I could not be more happy! These boots are extremely comfortable and I get a lot of compliments on them! I got them in the Pebble. I will definitely never go back to cheap winter boots again. Thank you Sorel! :) I highly recommend these boots!! December 17, 2014
I like 'em These boots have everything I look for in a winter boot. They keep my feet warm, are waterproof, lace up easily and fit true to size (8.5 for me). I crossed the laces a second time at the third loop to keep them tight enough and added sheepskin insoles for extra insulation. Also, I really like the suede's texture and color (blue). December 11, 2014
Great Boots Glad I got these boots. Warm and comfortable. Great quality and arrived with no damage to box. I am very happy and can see me having a collection of various sorel boots and shoes. December 11, 2014
Love these Boots! I have not worn them through a New England winter yet, but I think they are going to do just fine. I love the color, the fur edge and the fit is great. Easy to slip on go play in the snow! December 10, 2014
Wide calf friendly! These are the most comfortable snow boots I have ever put on my feet! I have a wider calf than most and this boot has more than enough space to tie comfortably. As other reviewers have stated, they honestly feel like slippers. I was worried about buying online without trying on first but I can tell you it's the best investment ever for my feet in the winter. December 5, 2014
A very nice boot!!! My husband purchased me these boots for my birthday and I really enjoy them, they're very comfortable, warm, and stylish(lots of compliments). They run a little big but with an extra pair of socks they'll be perfect, which I'll probably need as we get deeper into winter. Overall I am very happy with my boots and would recommend them to anyone. November 29, 2014
So comfortable Really comfortable, like walking on air. Color of boot is amazing. November 27, 2014
Love em' These boots are so light, warm and comfortable. The first day I wore them, I trampled through 5 inches of snow in 15 degree weather and was never cold or wet! I proceeded to wear them to work and never over heated either. They don't feel like you are tromping around in heavy snow boots so your legs don't get tired. The insoles are like wearing memory foam slippers. I love this boot! November 26, 2014
This boot is fabulous! Besides being waterproof & warm, this boot is light weight which to me in any shoe or boot is a necessity. I love it! November 26, 2014
First Sorel boot This was my first Sorel boot. I was pleased when I got it in the mail. I tried it on and it fit the size 9 I wear in shoes. They are fairly light and not at all stiff like another model boot I had been wearing for the past three years. I haven't had snow yet, but I am looking forward to some so I can really test out the boots. November 20, 2014
Better than Uggs I wear 7.5 in everything and with one pair of wool socks these boots fit well and offer a little extra space. I wouldn't go down a half size. The laces can be tightened, too, for a snugger feel around the ankle. I bought the blue ones. The fabric is a striking color and my male roommates are drooling over them. The Sorel label is a neon lime green color which offers a nice contrast against the blue but doesn't really appear in the stock images. I would have preferred if the fur area was a little lighter in color and a little more full; the fur kind of looks like it's been worn and already balding. But i'm not returning them. Overall very comfortable and cute. November 14, 2014
Soft and supportive A dog lover's best friend. Easy on, easy off for those quick trips outside. Also perfect for the longer daily walks, fits well with fuzzy warm support. November 6, 2014
way to go! Boot is true to size even with winter socks, no need to size up for cold weather. Have them on straight out of the box and the deep water color is beautiful. The instep is very easy to get into. I really love the idea that you can see the laces on these boots at the end of the bottom of your jeans or snow gear. I'm gonna have to give 'em a big thumbs up! October 28, 2014
A cute alternative to my Caribous I have owned my Caribous for years. They only get use when I go snowshoeing or the snow is heavy on the ground on my walk to the gym. These are a less bulky boot, very softly cushioned, and stylish, for a snow boot. They have good traction, though the lugs are not as deep as on the Caribou, but I think they'll be easier to walk in since they weigh less and seem to flex a bit more. I plan to use them for dog walks in the snow--don't worry, my dog will be wearing neoprene booties--and walks to the gym, and also for winter travel. I'm also hoping they'll work for snowshoeing. Unlike a previous reviewer, I found them to fit true to size if you want to wear thick wool hiking or snow socks. October 23, 2014
This.Boot.Rocks. Fits well because it runs larger. I have some edema issues in lower legs at times. This boots actually fit around my calves, with ease. The arch support is amazing! Can't wait for snow to appear so I can wear them. Thank you Sorel, for thse boots! October 16, 2014
Perfect I wanted a commuter boot that's waterproof but not too insulated. They are so warm! I wore them for the first time last night while shoveling my driveway. It was about 15-20F and my feet stayed warm and dry the entire time, I have no doubts they'll be even better when the temp drops more. And COMFORTABLE. They feel like bedroom slippers, they're so squishy and soft inside! I think my very favorite part, though, is the shape. I have other boots from Sorel and other brands and many times I find the back upper part (from Achilles to the top of the boot# has a kind of stiff concave shape that forces your body weight more toward your toes and can be pretty uncomfortable when trying to shift to your heels or walk #there's no natural rolling from heel to ankle, the shape of the boot makes you clomp.) These boots don't have that problem. I can walk normally without clomping or stomping and the upper is sturdy but flexible. I can't wait to make these my daily wear winter boots. October 7, 2014
walking on clouds i have very thick wide feet and these definitely runs big. i wear 11 and even with socks i have to pull them real tight to keep them on.they are very stylish well made and comfortable. the most comfortable sole i ever had in a shoe. i just have to get a half size smaller.
