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 from Great boots Love this boot for outdoor activities. I can be outside in the snow for hours without my feet getting cold. I also love the fact that they are waterproof so I don't have to worry about them getting wet. The navy fur is so cute as well!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sizing issues The sizing is so off that I would not recommend these boots. 7 was too small and 7 1/2 too big. I am out over $40 on shipping expenses as well. Very frustrated!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Zero degree snow boots With two pairs of socks, my feet were still cold in zero degree weather. Is there another boot out there that really keeps your feet warm?!! The blue dye in the fur turned my feet blue. It bled through two pairs of socks and my feet were dry?!?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super warm! I decided on this particular boot because I wanted something warm for playing outdoors with my daughter and cute if I needed to run to town in 2 feet of snow! Warm they surely are! A bit heavy but also expected- I measured my feet according to their guide which definitely told me to choose an 8- When I first put them on I thought they felt a bit snug on my bigger foot- which was the foot I measured BUT now that I'm out and about wearing them I don't notice that sensation- and ordering larger would have made for a sloppy fit- they have been comfortable and warm! There's no need for heavy socks so if u plan to wear them I might go a half size up for the room! Looking for another style to add to my collection for all day wear that is also warm and waterproof and also looks great with anything I wear!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So bummed they didn't fit What a beautiful boot! The sizing is poor, but the boot is beautiful, therefore I gave it a two rating. I did read the reviews, but was unsure of what size to order; so I ordered my shoe size 8--shouldda known better. Attempt 1: I put on some winter socks, but could not get my foot under the curve of instep. I took the felt liner out of the boot and put it on. The liner fit *exactly* to size. (I think the liner should have been a bit larger as the felt will compact/shrink a bit over time.) *Without the liner* I could easily get my foot into the boot....extremely roomy. Attempt 2: I put the liner on my foot and then tried to put on the boot, but again I had the same issue of not being able to get past the instep. Both attempts failed equally for the right foot and left foot. I don't think an 8 1/2 will give me enough room; so I am going to try a 9, but they may be too big. I'll keep you posted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boots for heavy winter Excellent quality of the boots , looks very lasting and keep feet warmer. I used to walk 30 minutes everyday during all winter from Minnesota and these boots have the best quality that i haven't seen in my whole life before; I am excited to try it! Thank you Sorel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice solid boot I must start off by saying I have not had a chance to really put this boot to the test yet. That trip is scheduled in November to go into the Arctic Circle to try and see the northern lights. That said, I picked this boot because it was temperature rated and blended in more than the Caribou with a less obvious stripe and a bit better for walking. It is a firm boot, so still a bit heavy, but even around the house, I can tell it is nice and toasty and with a pair or two of wool socks, should fit the bill. I also wanted something to wear site seeing around Russia. These will keep my feet warm and dry (which was the first requirement) but are a little heavy for lots of walking. I may buy a different style for urban settings while traveling of a lighter variety. The TOFINO may do the trick, or I may opt for an UGG ankle boot lined with wool. I ordered a 10 though I wear a 9 usually to accommodate thick socks and allow air flow for warmth. 10 seems to work.
