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 3 out of 5 by from Way too small Before I got these, I had a pair of the olive color Joan of Arctic boots from Athleta, but the snap buckle broke. I sent that pair in for repair, but was ultimately given a store credit. I loved that pair so much that I decided to get the Joan of Arctic again, but in this Safari Boot style. I got the same size by number, but the fit was way, way smaller. I couldn't even get my foot in the boot. I've sent them back. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm & Cozy Boots I love these boots! I have always had sorel boots. We snowmobile and I wanted boots with a "cuteness" factor. I did take the advice of going up a half of a size. I was glad I did. I can't wait to wear them this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are cute and very functional! I bought mine at the Columbia Sportswear Outlet (great sale price!) and they are worth every penny. I was told by Sorel that if you buy them and they don't fit, you may be able to return them to this store. I called, they confirmed this and then told me they had them at a lower price, but they do not ship. Luckily, I had an outlet store near work! I was replacing my older Sorels since I have really had them for 15 years and they are still warm. These boots are lighter in weight and higher and we just got 3 ft of snow in Denver (4 in the mountains). I love the leather exterior and I did buy a 1/2 size larger, which I do not really need. I am going to keep them though since the 7.5 is now sold out. It is true that the foot naturally moves at the heel. Also, having room allows your feet to stay warm. I am 5'7, 125 and have slim legs, but muscular calves. I ensure that I just smooth out the "tongue" or the area under the ties. I still have to tighten them to make them fit, so if you have larger calves, they should fit fine too. I love these and the leopard strips make them stand out. I am actually disappointed that I have to wait until next year to wear them! Sorely are the best and most durable. I love to wear these up skiing or even hiking if the now isn't too deep. Don't hesitate - totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boots! These boots are incredible! I normally wear 6.5 or 7 but based on other reviews I ordered a half size up, 7.5. The fit was perfect. I have very high arches in my feet so getting the boots over my arch was a little difficult but once on they were very comfortable, warm, durable, and stylish. I love these!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great choice The boot was a gift that came right on time. I walk a lot and rely on public transportation for work, so I needed a waterproof, comfortable,yet will keep my feet warm during the coldest of weather and snow. So far this boot has done the job.. My only complaint is that it's on the heavier side..it was however true to size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy Winter Boots I bought these boots because they are made for heavier snow & figured my feet would stay warmer. I have worn them a few times & I think they will be perfect. I bought them 1/2 size larger based on reviews, not sure I needed to do that, but they work fine with my heavy winter socks. I like the looks & design of the boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to love them... I wanted to love these boots, but the fit was slightly off for me. The left boot rubbed strangely on my achilles tendon which caused the boots to be uncomfortable. Other than that I really liked the boots (style and overall fit). Sadly, I'll be returning the boots due to the ankle area fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! Love these boots they keep my feet warm and dry. They are a bit small so order half size up. These boots are very stylish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Boots I live in Maine and I have been snowmobiling in my boots and they are just the warmest and most comfortable boot I could have purchased!! I absolutely love them!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Cute! These were exactly what I was looking for! Something super cute yet highly functional and these have completely fit the bill! I did buy the liners so I could switch out and alternate between the black fur and the brown and more versatility!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very broad shoe While the quality of this boot seems great the actual boot is very chunky and wide fitting such that it makes it feel more like a snowboard boot or even one of those air walker boots that people wear when they break a bone in the foot or sprain an ankle (but to be honest not as snug as while the length is fine my foot completely swims inside the boot and the area around the ankle is way way too big) rather than an actual stylish shoe for wearing in the snow. With some simple modifications I think this boot could be absolutely wonderful. I would recommend this product if you have wide to very very wide feet. My feet are normal width.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WOMEN'S JOAN OF ARCTIC™ SAFARI BOOT REVIEW I LOVE the look of these boots... however, the comfort is not the best. They are difficult to get off & on as they seem tight around the ankles and I'm petite, so size is not the issue. When I use the straps to assist, they often unsnap. I've tried to stretch the leather and this did not help the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Warm and Nice looking These boots are warm and very comfortable. The are hard to get on though. It gets better the more you wear them but because I have a high instep it is still a bit challenging. They are worth the work getting on though! My last pair of Sorel's were a 6 and I got these in a 6.5 after reading the reviews. 6.5 was the right size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard Core Snow Boots These are true to size, I am between a size 8-8.5, so I ordered the 8.5 (fit perfectly). They are warm and fit well. Definitely perfect to have on hand for winter blizzards. They seem to have good traction, but I have not had a chance to try them out in heavy snow as of yet (Thank goodness!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm boots These boots are really warm. They will be great in Chicago when the temp goes below 32 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wild safari boots These boots are great. Love how they look, fit is as expected, I normally wear size 8, but ordered 8-1/2 so I could wear thicker socks. Great for deep snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FUNCTION WITH STYLE love the warmth and comfort of this boot. found it true to size and also comfortable immediately. it has a strip of animal print which gives it a nice detail to set it apart from a plain leather boot. feel like i can dress it up with my winter coats and be warm and comfortable but stylish too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and warm boots This is not my first pair of Sorel boots. But they are the best looking, I have had a couple complements already wearing them and young ladies have asked me where to get them!! Waterproof and warm, I have gone to them on our coldest days here in Northern California. I also wore Sorel's when I lived in Colorado springs at high altitude, and they were warm and dry then as well. I have a wide foot, so I went up from my usual 9 boot size to a 9.5 size and it worked for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmest Boots Ever! I have to say I really went back and forth about spending the money on these boots. Let me tell you, they are worth every penny!! It has been a cold winter and these boots keep my feet so warm. Not only are they extremely warm, but super cute with leggings. Highly recommend. In my opinion, go up a half size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ignore people who say this boot is too small I regret listening to anyone who said this boot was too small since I ordered just a half size too big. These things would have been perfect if i ordered my true size. It was too late to exchange them for my correct size since they ARE ALL SOLD OUT IN 7 NOW!! They are a bit bulky but that could be because they are too big too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super cute boots! The look of these boots is amazing. However, as other reviewers mentioned, they do run small. I would order at least a half size up. I typically where a 9, ordered a 9, and my toe was hitting the front of the boot. They are also extremely wide in the foot. I was afraid to order a larger size as my foot was already swimming in the width. The lacing allowed room for a large calf & didn't look clunky. I found they felt very clunky though & were difficult to walk in. So, they were returned. Disappointed they didn't work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My thoughts... I read these run small - I am a true size 7 with a med/wide foot and the 7 fit fine. I do find the foot looks huge but that doesn't bother me Someone said they feel heavy to walk in and I have to agree however for what I need them for, I'm not going hiking in them. I want to keep my feet warm while walking to office or cleaning after snow storm. I would never pay $200 but bought on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot, but not for me These boots are gorgeous. Beautiful leather, soft to the touch. I really want to love them, but I'm afraid they will have to go back. They are so heavy and bulky. I am used to down snow boots, which have kept my feet warm and dry. I think these would be perfect for Colorado winters, but just not for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but bulky I love the style of this boot but in person they appear very bulky and they feel pretty heavy on your feet. They are actually very warm if you can handle all of the aforementioned issues. I ordered a 9 1/2 because that is what I usually wear but it was too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! I love these boots. They are stylish, as well as comfortable and warm. Would definitely order again. True to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Boots The boots kept my feet really warm and they were stylish at the same time. I'm really glad that I ordered these boots. I will certainly refer any friend to Sorel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THEM! Best snow boots I've ever bought. Fits slightly large but it is perfect because I need to wear insoles for my arch in almost any shoes for personal reasons so these boots + my insoles are HEAVEN!
Date published: 2016-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Comfort meets style, finally!! Reading the other reviews I purchased 1/2 size bigger, good thing I did. My feet stay so warm and I constantly get compliments. Boots were very stiff at first, after a few wears they are broken in and more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute! To be fair, I received these boots last week and I have NO SNOW! I would have thought that having had over 100 inches of snow last winter, we'd have some this winter. I finally have excellent snow boots and I haven't been able to try them out! I paid attention to other reviews stating that this runs small. I normally wear a 7 but purchased an 8.5. I prefer to wear thick smart wool socks with my boots. I'd rather have a little extra room than not enough. I probably could have gone with an 8. I can't judge the size accurately as I chose to go big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boot I ordered a size 10 but I wished I would of ordered a size 10 1/2.
Date published: 2016-02-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but big They are very nice, very well made, but they are very bulky. They are a serious snow boot, so if you're buying them for fashion keep that in mind. They fit true to size, so if you plan on layering socks, you might want to half size up. I do have to say that the accent fur at the top wasn't as nice as I had wanted. Looks a little cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Boots! I ordered these boots based on the fantastic reviews by other customers and Internet research. I also ordered them a half size larger as I thought that would be correct thing to do. I was WRONG! I should have ordered my regular size. The boots are absolutely gorgeous, warm, easy to put on and I am sad I had to return them because I just ordered the wrong size. I was disappointed that returning them cost over $13.00 and had to get my own packaging because the bag they sent me in wasnt reusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! These boots look even better in person! They keep my feet dry and warm while looking good at the same time! I had no problems with the fit - I ordered my normal size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feet Stayed Dry I have been wanting a pair of Sorel for over a year, finally decided to buy a pair just before a big winter storm. Boots arrived on Thursday, started snowing on Friday didn't stop snowing until early Sunday morning. Went out side Saturday, snow was to my knee, my feet were nice and warm, never got wet. Went outside Sunday to shovel for 2 hours feet stayed nice and dry and warm. I love these boots can't say enough about them. Oh I order a 1/2 size up from my normal size 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Cute Super Warm Love this boot. Keeps my feet warm standing all day in cold snow AND it's so dang cute!! I wear an 8 in shoes but went up to 8.5 so I could wear my thick ski socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes care of feet! There is nothing worse than having to be outside and your feet are cold. For the first time every I was outside with only a thin pair of socks and my feet were actually warm! A bit hard to get on but absolutely worth the pulling!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My boots Very cute boots however they are really difficult to put on. Purchased a 6 1/2 and could not get my foot into the boot. I exchanged the 6 1/2 for a 7 and had the same problem. Unlaced the boot and force them on but the boots were too big on my feet. Had to return them also...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sorel boots with cheetah stripe. I love these boots. Both practice and fashionable! So far they are a great boot. I'm glad they had a 1/2 sizes. I'm an 8 and ordered 8.5 and they fit perfectly!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Was worried these would be too big or bulky but they are perfect! Leather softened up after the first wear, and they are super warm (and my feet are always cold)! The strip of animal print on the back is fun while not being over the top or tacky. I wore them all around Switzerland on Holiday and didn't want to take them off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love LOVE LOOOOOOVE these boots These are the sassiest most wonderful snow boots I have ever owned. First off, they are totally gorgeous! My best friend complimented them the moment I got in the car to head to the mountains. In addition, they are super functional! While in the mountains, my feet stayed nice and warm and best of all, it was super easy to tuck all the fluff from my ski pants into the shoe because of their smart design. Some have commented that the leather is a bit stiff on first wear. The leather was slightly stiff when I first put them on, but it really only took an hour or so for them to start wearing in. They were very comfortable and I imagine with more wear they will continue to break in. All in all, this is a beautiful and efficient winter boot. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots!!! Absolutely love them. They fit perfectly. I've worn them in snow and 10 degrees F weather, and they have kept my feet cozy. Plus, I have gotten many compliments on how cute they are. The fur sheds a bit, but overall I would definitely recommend this product.
