This is a SERIOUS boot! Fit is completely true to size. Though they at first felt a bit "clunky", I have gotten used to them. Totally worth the $ as they keep my feet so warm! The pattern is so different & cute! Love them! February 7, 2014
beautiful but HUGE! Going to Lake Tahoe in February and since I live in FL I don't own a pair of winter boots. Saw these online and had to have them!! Shipping was quick and I was excited to see them in person. When I opened the box I couldn't believe how massive these boots were!! The fit of the boot, in my case, runs a half size too big and with the enormity of the boot itself, my foot looks HUGE (thing Bozo the Clown ;) Anyway, I love the materials used and the overall look; I hope they keep me warm during my ski trip.

Beautiful Boot, But.... This is a gorgeous boot. However, as a size 5.5/6, I went with the 6 because was the only size left, and it may be just a 1/2 size too large, because while the left boot is a perfect fit, the right boot chafed and now I'm dealing with a blister on my right Achilles, even while wearing socks. Major disappointment.Also, compared to my Cate the Greats, the boot shaft is shorter, offering less protection. I can slip into my Cate the Greats, no adjustments or having to doing up the laces; with the Joan of Arctics, I must always undo the laces to slip into the boot, then tighten them up, like I would ice skates, before I can get a move on. Oddly enough, the Cates are a size 5 (I sized down on them because I read they ran large). So while I love the look of these boots, their function, compared to my Cates, is lame. Oh, and they feel heavier/clunkier on my feet compared to the Cates. Both are heavy snow boots, yes, but the Cates win this comparison. January 23, 2014
Love them! I absolutely love my boots. They are so unique, I don't think I'll see anyone else with them! Even though I have to tie them each time I put them on, they are still very easy to put on and take off. I wanted a pair of Sorels that were a little on the fashionable side and I wanted to be able to take out the inserts to dry if needed. I certainly got it! I'm 50 years old and these are my most favorite boots I have ever owned! Warm, stylish, comfortable - so glad I ordered them! Worth every cent! January 22, 2014
Great WIDE boot I usually have to order 1/2 size up to get into the B width on most shoes, but these are very wide and fit my feet great with my true size 8 and a thick pair of socks.If you have narrow feet, these will be too big for you. Maybe try a 1/2 size smaller.The cow print is adorable.I will now ALWAYS order Sorel b/c of the fit! January 21, 2014
Best boots ever These boots are amazing! I normally wear an 8.5 and I bought a size 9 and it fit perfectly, even with bigger socks. The overall look of the boots is breathtaking. They are super comfy and have kept my feet warm in -2 degree weather in Oregon. Thanks Sorel! January 20, 2014
Joan of Arctic Boots These boots are fantastic. Super warm and great for shoveling! They are a little large, but I have very narrow feet so I just make sure I wear a hefty boot sock and they are great. Highly recommend the product. January 20, 2014
Very Satisfied This is my first pair of Joan of Arcs. First, about the look: I really wanted them in shale but over the Christmas holiday everything in my size was sold out. Then I found this reserve boot in black/white and am so glad I kept searching. They are adorable, cuter in person than online, and I get a ton of compliments on them; I can't wear them without someone noticing. Second, the fit: depending on the shoe, I wear an 8 or 8.5. I took others' recommendations that they fit a bit big so I went with the 8. It fits perfectly with sufficient room for thick socks. When I first put them on, they were snug across the top where the tongue connects to the rubber foot part, but within a half-hour they adjusted and now fit great. Note these are not dainty shoes -- they are snow boots -- so they are solid, a little heavy and a bit chunky when driving, but they keep my feet warm and dry and are super cute to wear.

Awesome & Fun! I love these boots! I wish they had 1/2 sizes as I am always a 9.5 however the 9 was ok and since they are so warm I don't need a heavy sock. They help me navigate the snow and slush all while looking like a hip mom! The tread is good too on the slippery days. January 13, 2014
Great warm boot I have been looking for some boots that would keep my feet and toes warm when the temperature drops below freezing and these are the perfect boot for that. This winter has been extra cold and I am recently widowed so I have to do all of the shoveling and plowing with a 4 wheeler by myself and these boots helped considerably since I am usually outside for an hour at a time. Thank you Sorel for the perfect winter boot. They are also quite stylish January 13, 2014
Fun and very warm! The warmest boots I have ever owned. We have occasional extreme cold in MN and I am often out in it. They keep my feet warm and dry. My boots are simply fun to look at. January 5, 2014
Women's Joan of Arctic Reserve Boot I was really looking forward to getting these boots. My daughter had recently purchased a pair of Sorel boots and suggested I get a pair. I feel in love with the style of this boot however, the sizing was, for me a half size big. The boot also rubbed the back of my leg, that within the first hours of me wearing them (around the house, because of return policy) I got a blister. Need less to say I was extremely disappointed and returning them. I'm now in search of another boot that won't cause that same problem. January 4, 2014
LOVE!!! I love my new boots. These are my first pair of Sorel boots. I am uncertain why some people have posted that the shaft of the boot is too small. I would agree if you try to shove your foot in the boot laced up. Simply loosen the laces and even people with big calves will be able to wear these. I ordered a size 6 which is what I wear in a dress shoe. They are perfect. I am glad I didn't order a size down. There is plenty of room for a thick sock, but it's completely comfortable with a thin pair. The boots are super warm. I tested them out in 12 degree weather. It does feel a bit odd to walk in them at first because the shaft by the heel is stiff, but it loosens up as you walk around. They were totally comfortable and I have a tendency toward heel pain from plantar fasciitis. I read some reviews where people complained about the boot scratching up he backs of their legs. I did not have this problem. I assume anyone that had that problem may have ordered too small a size. These boots are awesome!!! I'm glad I ordered them. January 2, 2014
Everything Old is New I had a pair of these boots (or the previous model) ~ 20 years ago. Got the sassier, updated version and loving them! I typically wear an 8.5, but purchased a 9 and they fit great. Warm, waterproof, and the removable inserts are great for sweaty feet! This is the 4th pair of Sorel boots in my winter rotation and my feet are very grateful for them! January 2, 2014
Warm and stylish After trying out a size 6.5 and 7 Cate the Great, I settled for size 6 in the style I really liked. The boots are warm, comfortable and stylish.Nice material mix, my only wish would be for them to be a little taller as they stop top calf and look a little silly with skirt.The sizing was a little difficult despite reading reviews on both styles, in the end I settled for my European size and it worked.Some suggestions for the auto fill questions:My attittude towards footwear: all of the aboveAm I an employee of Sorel: unfortunately not ;-) December 29, 2013
Women’s Joan of Arctic Love these boots! I have gotten so many comments on them. December 29, 2013
Woman's Joan of Artcic boot First time customer and LOVE LOVE LOVE the boots. Website was easy to navigate and place my order. Will HIGHLY recommend to friends and family. December 24, 2013
huge! I absolutely fell in love with these online. They are warm and adorable! I ordered my regular boot size (9) and they were huge. At least a full size too big. Waiting for the 8 to come and hopefully they will be better. I wish sorel wouldn't make the women's boots so wide though, I feel like they make you look like you have duck feet. Oh well, can't win em all...I would rather be warm and dry I guess. Oh and these are a little heavier, not bad, just what you would expect from a super warm boot. December 23, 2013
Love these boots! These boots are so great looking and warm. They arrived a couple days before we got blasted with an ice storm with frigid air. My feet were warm and dry in the 15 degree weather. They are a little clunky feeling through the ankle, especially climbing down stairs. I wore mine with heavier socks and they fit pretty well....maybe a little bit big. I love the way they look and would recommend them! December 10, 2013
Hooked on Sorel! These boots are the BEST pair I've ever purchased! I ordered my true size (8) and the fit is perfect. They are comfortable, warm, and easy to put on even though they lace up. They are stylist and serve my purpose very well. These boots are well worth the buy. I'm sure you will not be disappointed! December 4, 2013
Love this boot These boots are definately made for the winter climate but have the style too. I ordered a half size up and I am glad I did. With a warm thick pair of socks I have enough room. They are comfortable! November 25, 2013
Extra cool, extra warm I got my first pair of Sorels in the late 70s; back then we had to waterproof the leather ourselves. Mine lasted many, many years, so when it was time to replace them, I wanted something special. These hide boots are it! All the functionality of real Sorels, plus an extra-special leather.Follow the sizing advice and use the chart and you will get the fit you want! November 12, 2013
Fit of boot I read the reviews and ordered a 1/2 size up. I'm having to return them to get my true size of 5. These boots aren't any smaller than the regular ones. I'm 5'2", 118lbs, have no issues with my feet swelling and I usually wear tights or a regular sock with my boots. (I never wear anything thick because my feet would sweat.) Get your true size. You won't regret it.These are beautiful and well made. Can't wait for my 5's to get here!! November 9, 2013
Disappointed it didn't fit me... I have been a true believer of Sorel since, I think, birth. I was very disappointed that these did not fit me. I had to squeeze my foot through the top of the "shoe" part of the boot (connected to the shaft). Once in, it felt fine, but the struggle to get my foot into the boot was not what I expected or wanted...therefore, I had to return them.... August 7, 2013
A fabulous looking boot Based on the other reviews, I purchased this boot for wet cold weather and snow. I got the size up which was perfect. They are just beautiful.Only caveat is they are a little heavy in weight. I wish they were lighter but spectacular looking. Just a find. February 22, 2013
CLASSY!!! these boots are my 3rd pair of Sorel's. I have Cate the Great™, Joan of Arc™ & now these Joan of Arctic™ Reserve Boots! they are definitely worth the extra $$$. they seem to be more comfortable & are definitely of a higher quality than the regular Joan of Arcs™. these will be my "go-to" boots for many years. PERFECT!!! January 29, 2013
