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 Favorite for fall Beautiful boot. Receive compliments anytime i wear them. Able to wear them all day, with walking; very comfortable and supportive. Wearing them in the south, in the fall, they are breathable so my feet don't sweat. October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shockingly warm and comfortable. You will want to wear these boots everyday for any occasion. I wear them to my kid's football, lacrosse, hockey games, they are warm and comfy but also have great support & traction. And the sexy cut makes both women & men compliment on how pretty these boots are. My left foot is an 8.5 & rt is 9 so I bought 8.5 and I can wear them with a thin or thick sock beautifully! I can actually wear my neighbor's sz 8's, bc they lace up you can make them tighter or loser-brilliant design! September 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully made boot I LOVE them. They are fashionable, well made, durable, perfect. The girl who sold me them was wearing last years model and hers were still in amazing shape so they are worth the price. They are perfect for city girls who love the outdoors. Casual yet dressy. I NEVER buy shoes this expensive, I don't regret it. They do run a little large, I usually am a 7.5-8 but bought a 7. I recommend trying them on before buying, I've noticed Sorel runs larger. September 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everyday wedge This is the 1st wedge I purchased from SOREL. These shows are really comfy and I can wear them all day long. Really versatile too, looks cute with skinny jeans, skirts, dresses plus you can wear them in the rain so that makes these boots a great purchase. July 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have two pairs of these boots and I'm in love! I have this dark pair as well as a lighter pair. I bought one and was just in love. They are honestly the comfiest shoes I own - and the grips on the bottom are amazing! I live in Montana, so I'm not shy to snow, and these boots have endured the worst and they still look amazing! June 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Boot of Boots I love this boot. It's the first leather boots I own that does not make my feet sweat in this warm/cold/crazy Chicago weather. It does fit tight, not small. So if you have a slightly wide foot like myself make sure you have something to stretch it out. I had to size down. I usually fluctuate between a 7.5 and an 8. This is a company wear you would always go for your smaller size. I'm always a 7.5 in sorel shoes. The 8 fit too big but the width was perfect. The 7.5 fit great but it was snug for me. Overall I'm happy with what I have. My husband loves them and always makes me wear them out. April 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Boot LOVE this boot - I have lived in them and the 1964 booties this winter through snow, rain and cold weather. I have found that they're quite comfortable, however are a bit on the narrow side, so if you have wide feet they may not fit. They wear well in the rain, and hold up being worn under pants or over top of pants, and look cute doing it. Would love it if the black came with a black sole, but the brown works. I can stand in these on and off all day, and have done some pretty long walks in them as well, with no issues. Highly recommend them. April 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I Expected I had high hopes for these wedges; I'd seen them online, seen positive reviews, but having never purchased Sorel footwear before (they're not well known in Australia), wasn't sure what to expect. I trusted the reviews, ordered the size I thought best and crossed my fingers because sizes were selling out. Picked them up when I got to the US; a perfect fit and comfortable from the get go!!! April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Black Joan of Arctic Boots I am not an expert in craftsmanship, but these boots are gorgeous. I have two other pairs (one brown, one gray) and I also love those, but my favorites by a WIDE MARGIN are the black ones. The leather just looks expensive and supple. My only complaint is that it leaves a black ring on my calf, but that's not a huge deal. LOVE THESE BOOTS. April 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shoes I have ever owned!!! First off I'm a regular Ugg costumer, not the thick classic style but the slim fitted hard leather boots. I thought I was in heaven. Until I discovered these. These are not only the most comfortable heels I've ever worn but also the most comfortable boots in general. They enlongate your legs and just look so cute and stylish. I love them. I own three pairs. Because of this I can say that the black, grill black and cafe are all gorgeous colors. I find each to be so unique and beautiful. They each match something a little different. So if you are on the fence and can't decide, I would recommend going for it. Sorel is known for quality that can withstand the years and these are winter/spring/summer/fall boots! You can't beat that! And I live in the north near Canada. And I braved negative weather with no problems! March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Made for walking I bought these boots to take on a march trip to Denmark, Sweden & Finland. I knew from previous trips to Europe the cobblestone streets are not pleasant if wearing sneakers. So I was looking for a winter boot that would get me thru the cities snow or not. I had zero time to break these boots in. First impression on the look of the boot was they were solidly made & stitched together. They fit perfect right out of the box. I measured both feet per the websites size chart. One foot was 23.5 and the other 24 so I went with the 24 which translates to a 7. Like a glove. First day I wore them for 8+ hours walking around Copenhahen and my feet couldn't of been happier. Not a blister or a sore toe or heel to be had!!! In Finland we were north of the arctic circle and I had rented winter gear from the resort. The boots the resort gave us were fine but I couldn't stop slipping on the packed snow. I was so frustrated I put my sorels back on and no matter how hard I tried I could not slip. I was able to walk between the resort without falling down. I even wore them dog sledding. I know, not practical driving a dog sled, but the grip on these boots is amazing. I didn't lose footing on the narrow sled rails once on the entire excursion. And the only part of my feet that were cold were the baby toes. The whole time I only wore one pair of wool socks. These are my best purchase ever and I love wearing them. Well made, well fitted, well designed. Held up without issue for 2 weeks of some serious walking and my feet never even felt bad. Can't wait to buy more in other colors! March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these! These boots look fabulous - give the impression of a higher wedge than they actually are - and are just about the most comfortable heeled boot I have ever worn. They come high enough on the calf to flatter the leg perfectly. Wearing them now with leggings and come warmer weather will wear them with shorter leggings that show 1-2" of skin above the boot shaft. I can't say enough good things about them! March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots I just spent everyday for a week in these boots. Heavy snow, very cold temps, lots of walking. I'm VERY happy. So happy, I'm considering a second pair in a different color. Very stylish, warm and waterproof. Love them!!! March 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy & Cute I love these shoes! They are super comfortable, durable and very cute. I really like the extra bit of height to them as well. I get compliments on them all the time. February 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this boot! I love this boot! It's very comfortable, I can wear it all day long and my feet never hurt. My toes do get cold on occasion, but the boot is true to size even when I wear a thicker sock. Seriously considering buying this boot in other colors. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Wedge Boots LOVE LOVE LOVE these wedge boots. They are so stylish and comfortable you will want to wear wear them when there is no snow and rain. I have a pair in black and just ordered a pair in tan. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfy! I love these boots! They're so comfy, even with the heel, and they look amazing in every kind of weather. I've gotten so many compliments in these boots! They do run a little bit big, but if you wear thicker socks with them, they fit like a dream. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing wedges I love these booties. I will echo other reviewers who've said they are the most comfortable wedges they've ever had. They are truly the only wedge or heel that I've ever worn that don't kill my feet by day's end. For a 3" wedge, that's saying a lot. They were comfortable right out of the box and required no breaking in whatsoever. The leather of the upper is quite soft. The tread in these boots is very sturdy, so again, unlike other wedges, I never trip or roll my ankles, and I feel comfortable wearing them on icy days. I've found some Sorels to be a bit roomy in the heel, causing slippage, but these are true to size, and the 8 fits my narrow foot perfectly. Also, plenty of support for my high arch. I could really go on and on--these are an amazing buy. If you're on the fence, go for it; you will not regret purchasing these boots. January 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect all weather/stylish boots LOVE these boots! So comfortable straight out of the box! I worried for weeks trying to decide what boots to buy for a trip to England. These worked perfectly! They are very comfortable for all sorts of walking. Rain/ mud/grass/and the streets of London. I will definately buy more! Very well made! January 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sorel boots The boots are very comfortable. My only complaint is the smell. I hope this goes away so I will actually wear the boots. January 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Café This shoes are very comfortable! I was't sure about the color. I was debating between the Nori and cafe but I ended up getting the cafe and they are perfect. not to dark or light! I was a little bit worry about getting the wrong size! I dint want to pay for shipping them back. good thing they fit me perfectly. I usually wear 6 or 6.5 so I ordered 6.5 This shoes are not going to keep your feet warm so wear think socks :) January 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My new favourite boots! I love these boots, totally worth the price. I have them in nori and plan to buy at least one other colour because they're that good. V. comfortable from first wearing (no chafing!), and even with the wedge heel I can walk around in them all day and my feet feel fine (never been able to do this in my other non-flat boots). They look great, I get loads of compliments on them, and I LOVE that they're waterproof and super low maintenance. I bought them half size bigger because I have wide feet and plan to wear with thick socks when it gets cold. They're also really quick to take off/put on so unlikely to be a hassle at airport security - I plan to wear them traveling next month. Suggest double-tying laces to stop them coming undone (I do this with all my boots). January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these Boots! I purchased these boots in Black and love them. The wedge height is perfect and they are truly comfortable. I can walk around and shop all day in these boots. (I normally wear running/trainers). I liked so much I also purchased in the Grill Black (espresso brown). Now I have two pairs to wear with all outfits. I own several pairs of Sorel boots - all warm and comfortable. I'm a big fan. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shoes I have ever owned These are the most comfortable shoes that I have ever owned. I have recommended them to everyone that I know and I wish that every pair of shoes was this comfortable. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love ! i ordered these in black last year and loved them so much I got the brown this year ! they are comfortable, stylish and well made. I can wear them all day and not feel like I need to " get them off" at the end of the day :-) Plenty of support for my high arches and plenty of room in at the ball of the foot for my wide feet - even with a decent sock on. Love them ! December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous boots! Love, love, love these boots! They are super comfortable and look fabulous. True to the Sorel brand they are sure-footed in snow and ice. I have been looking for a boot like this for some time and I am extremely satisfied. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous quality, dress shoe size These boots impressed as soon as I took them out of the box - the quality is just gorgeous. Fit: I ordered a 7.5 (my boot/sneaker size), and they fit well with 2 normal/thin socks but I probably could have gone a half size down to 7, my usual dress shoe size. The wedge makes them feel very supportive and stable, but they still do feel somewhat like heels because of the arch. Style: The black is too casual for truly dressy outfits, but it's otherwise very versatile. I like the wedge, but it looks pretty unusual and I don't know if the style will last...but I plan to wear them forever anyways :) Misc: If you order, don't wear any light-colored socks the first few days - it seems like the color is rubbing off a little on my laces (also really nice quality) and the first pair of socks I wore with them. Hopefully it won't be a long-term issue. Warmth: Also the leather is thick and nice quality, but obviously these aren't built for super-cold weather :) December 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stellar Boot I purchased this boot in the Nori color, and I received numerous compliments from people I didn't even know! I was a bit concerned about the height of the heel, but it is completely soft yet supportive and incredibly comfortable...and the added plus is the height it gives me! I was also a bit skeptical of the laces as they feel like they will wear pretty quickly (I have only had these for about a month or so...), but they have held up well, and I do appreciate the fact that I don't need to loosen them in order to get my foot out of the boot. I am a solid 7.5, and they fit perfectly. I couldn't be happier about this purchase, and I am ready to purchase them in the other colors! December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Function meets Style I bought these boots because I needed something waterproof to wear with everything for travel. I was skeptical at first because of the wedge so I decided to wear them to work ( I am on my feet all day). Success! I wore them all day and my feet felt great. I usually wear a 7 1/2 or 8 and ordered the 7 1/2 and I still had room to wear a thick sock perfectly. I can't wait to wear them again. These boots are a must if you are looking for comfortable style. December 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Them These boots are beautiful. Lots of compliments and so very comfortable. I am consistently a 6.5(37.5) with Sorel. I do have a high arch that makes some boots impossible to get into but these are perfect. December 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE LOVE LOVE These Boots I don't ever want to take them off. They are far and away the most comfortable boots I have ever put on my feet. I have extremely narrow ankles and wicked crooked toes that require a wide footbed to be comfortable. I bought my regular size and they are PERFECT. No slipping in the back, and plenty of room for my tootsies in the front. December 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This boot rocks! I love these boots! They are warm, comfortable all day and wearable in the mucky winter gunk and still look fabulous. December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing I read the reviews & ordered a half size smaller. I am ALWAYS a 9. I ordered an 8 1/2 and they are PERFECT!! The comfort is amazing!! I would love to order these in every color!!!!!! The sole is amazing for gripping the ground & I do not feel like I am wearing a wedge, b/cod the comfort! December 19, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good shoe that didn't fit and cost a bundle to return This boot had been recommended by a person who wears them almost every day. I love the style, but it was not comfortable on my foot. I wear a 9M, this was slightly short, not short enough to bump up up a 1/2 size though. Mid foot discomfort, probably due to length. I will not order from Sorel again, it cost $35 to return 3 pr of boots. December 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable fashion wedge This wedge is so adorable and comfortable. I measured my foot and order according to the fit guide. Usually I wear 9-10 depending on style but ordered 8.5 (what fit guide stated to order) and I'm so happy I did that so I didn't guess on what to order & end up needing to return. The first time I wore them my feet were a little sore but I knew it was just because they needed to be broken in. Now I have no problem and they really are comfortable and I love wearing them! These will not disappoint :) December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bravo, Sorel! I lusted after these boots for a little while and finally pulled the trigger. I am a bit of a tomboy, and so when I look for boots with heels, comfort is king. Otherwise, no matter how beautiful, I'll throw on something else if I know I'll be walking for more than five minutes at a time. Anyway, I saw all the reviews and I ordered the grill/black as to me this seemed like one of those colors that would go with anything. Size: I normally get a 7 in boots and I did for these. There is enough room for a sock, and maybe even a thick sock. My feet can sometimes do a 6.5, but they are wide so I usually go with a 7 to be safe. I think a 7.5 would have been too long. Comfort: Wow. Out of the box they were comfy. I wore them around the house for an hour to test and forgot about them as they only got softer. The rubber sole has a nice cushion to it. The heel is a perfect height, gives support and length, but you still feel grounded. Construction: Time will tell, but it looks well made, the leather is beautiful. It's got this nice rugged look that can be added to almost any outfit. They are surprisingly warm as well. Well worth the price if they hold up like I think they will. December 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Joan Of Arctic ™ Wedge Mid The shoes are well made and look great on. However they are tight across the top of the foot. You will have to break them in. My left foot tends to swell so wearing them became a challenge. I wore the boots with thin socks at first and eventually wore no socks just because of the tightness of the boot across the top of my foot. I hope that helps! December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very stylish boot! I am very happy with this purchase. They are not only beautiful, these boots are so comfortable too. They look great with jeans and dresses. December 17, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Don't buy these shoes online I ordered these shoes originally in a size 7. Since it seemed they tended towards larger and I usually wear a 7 or a 7.5. Got them and they looked great! But I tried them on and the arch was very tight in the right shoe, unwearable. While the length seemed a bit long. I've never had a problem with shoes fitting differently on two feet before. So I went to Nordstrom and tried on the 7.5s (they were out of 7s). They fit well enough and consistant in both shoes. So I returned and got the 7.5s. In the 7.5s I got, the left arch is tight!! Im keeping them because they are still very cute, I'm hoping they will stretch a bit and even out. My recommendation; buy the shoes in store, not online. The inconsistencys with sizing make buying online a headache December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish boot for fall/winter weather I love these boots! The natural leather makes each boot unique! I ordered cafe and I ordered my normal size after reading reviews. I wear an 8 1/2 and I'm happy that's what I ordered! Living in Minneapolis with all 4 seasons I wanted a cute boot to wear mid season and on days when the snow doesn't require waterproof boots! I absolutely love them! Perfect with jeans or leggings! I even made a sweater dress and tights edgy with these adorable boots!!!!! The craftsmanship is 100%!!!!! Can't wait to get them in other colors!!!!!! December 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cute These are super cute, but at least a 1/2 size too large. Not something a thick pair of socks would fix. I also found them to be a bit stiff. They're very cool, just not meant for me! December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome boots! These boots are amazing. Perfect for what I needed em for- I wanted cute boots I could wear to work and not worry about them during my commute if it rains. They are so comfortable and the leather is really nice!! So glad I splurged on these- Absolutely 100% worth it! December 14, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by So sad :( I have been eyeing these boots for 2 years, and finally decided to splurge! They so cute, super comfy, and I wore them 3 days in a row to work. I went to put them on a few days later and noticed the stitching was starting to unravel in one spot. When I looked closer, I saw that the leather was completely pulling away and the boot would quickly unravel! Also, the interior sole pulled up and away from the shoe the first day I wore them. I'm planning to return them and try another pair in hopes these are just defective, because i absolutely love the style! I only wore these to work, so they weren't in any inclement weather or anything! I would have hoped for the price that these would be better quality. December 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Favorite Boot! I have loved Sorel winter boots my whole life, as I'm Canadian and they are the perfect boot to play in the snow (which I love). So when I saw that they came out with a fashionable wedge I was willing to give them a go as I don't wear many, if any, heels/wedges any longer due to foot and back issues. But I bought these to try on as they were so cute and hoped they would fit and be comfortable enough for me to wear for short periods of time. They arrived and I was stunned by how comfortable they were. I wore them to the city for a day of walking/shopping and sight seeing fun the first time I wore them. Brought a back up pair of flats and never once thought about changing! I'm on the hunt for another pair! LOVE THEM! December 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully Stylish Boot I had looked at these boots for some time before ordering, fearful that they would not be comfortable. When I received them, I found them to be so very comfortable, not to mention that they are simply beautifully made and so uniquely stylish. Not only do they look so nice with jeans, but they are also perfect with skirts(both short and long). Totally love these boots. December 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by fashion and function: my favorite intersection! these boots are great. cute, fashionable and also functional, which I was pretty certain was impossible! the "mid" shaft shouldn't scare off any big girls, like myself, or ladies with beautiful shapely calves-- it stops about 3-4 inches above the ankle. I get compliments every time I wear these! they do seem to run a bit small/narrow, in comparison to other Sorel boots. I own the traditional Joan of Arctic, and the older Cate the Greats, both in a size 10-- and those both feel roomy despite my being a 10.5! these boots I bought in an 11, and I can tell you it wouldn't have worked out for me, otherwise. my only wish for this boot is that there were a few more eyelets for laces. they have the three eyelets and the spot in the tongue that laces go through- I find myself re-tying them multiple times a day, as they have worked their way loose! other than this, they are perfect and I want like 5 pairs! December 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable, and true to size I bought these during a sale after I saw a friend of mine wearing them. They are cute! And extremely comfortable, as well! I saw a review that said these were a half size small, so I bought them as an 8.5 instead of an 8. I should have bought the 8, as they are definitely true to size. I will be exchanging them for the correct size and look forward to wearing them. December 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dream Boots I've been looking for the perfect boot for years - something comfortable and stylish, durable and high quality. These wedges are a dream. They fit perfectly from the moment I slipped them on and give me height without sacrificing comfort. And they're waterproof, which for me means less worrying. Sorel wins again! (Well, I win!) December 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Boot I wasn't prepared to love this boot as much as I do. First, they are cuter on than in the picture. Second, they are very comfortable right out of the box. Third, I can wear them all day and my feet are happy. I have the green. If you are considering this boot I believe they will exceed your expectation. December 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite boots When these boots came in the mail, I put them on and never wanted to take them off. They are comfy, warm, stylish...everything you'd want in a boot. December 4, 2015
