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 Over-the-top Amazing I just bought my second pair. These truly are the perfect boot if you're looking for something that is gripping in the snow, waterproof for the rain, incredibly comfortable, and SO RIDICULOUSLY CUTE! Even wearing wool socks, these fit beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! these boots! I ordered a black pair of the joan wedge boots after hearing about the brand from a coworker and I couldn't be happier! They are so comfortable and very warm. I live in Oregon and these boots have help up spectacularly despite the rain. They also look great with jeans, leggings, or dresses--I've literally worn them with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Wedges!! I absolutely love these wedges! I had a knee replacement 15 weeks ago and thought I would never be able to wear anything with a heel again! I can actually wear these all day and am comfortable! I also get tons of compliments on them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Boots I can't say enough good things about these boots! I get a ton of compliments on them. Not only are they super comfortable but also versatile! I can dress them up for going out or dress them down with skinny jeans and tank for a more casual look. They run a little small, so I bought them a half size up. You can tell these boots are high quality. It's an added bonus that they are water resistant! I wear them in the rain and they look fine afterwards. These are the second pair of Sorrel boots I bought this year and plan to get a few more styles for spring and summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute boots! I bought these boots for those messy nyc winter nights where you want to look cute but don't want to ruin your shoes/boots. These are perfect! They are so comfortable and I've worn them for hours and walked miles in them. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots I usually wear a 7.5-8 but tried these on before purchasing and went with a 7. They were a little bit tight the first few wears but have now formed to my feet perfectly. They are superior singly comfortable for having a heel and I can walk or ride my bike in them with no issues. I love in Sam francisco so for the amount of rain we've been having these have been a lifesaver. They probably wouldn't be great in a torrential downpour, but day to day drizzles with some heavier showers have been great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots I've ever owned! I purchased these boots in the fall of 2015. It was a long, hard winter in Idaho this year and I definitely got a ton of use out of them. These boots are not only comfortable but stylish. After wearing them for two seasons they still look like brand-new. People always complement me on them. I will be purchasing these in another color. Love my Sorels!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved these boots, but lasted less than three winters I absolutely loved these boots. Wore them almost every day through the past few winters. They were very warm and waterproof. Unfortunately, one day while leaving the gym a few weeks ago, I noticed that the seam over the toe area had completely unraveled to expose the side of my foot. It has been less than three winters (in NH). I thought they might have a policy guaranteeing quality for a few years, but the warranty is only for one year. Disappointed that they only lasted for less than three seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Will Be Your New Staple Boot Owning several pairs of SOREL boots, I was very familiar with the fit. They always run true to size. Since purchasing these, they're one of my pairs that I grab for the most. I bought the black and they just go with everything! I'm always getting compliments. Two of my friends even purchased a pair for themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfy and Cute! i haven't worn these in rain or snow yet, but they definitely are comfortable! they are a little more 'combat' boot thank I wanted, but I've still worn them to work for business casual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for rain! These boots have surprisingly high traction for heels, like I'm wearing hiking shoes. Their deep tread makes them perfect for walking through puddles. They're all I wear in the rain now because I can be sure-footed and stay dry. I can't stop staring at the beautiful curves on these shoes. Amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Everyday Wedge More often than not, I am a true size 7. In Sorel however, I end up wearing a size 6. I am an inner city school teacher and wanted shoes to wear to work (especially on days where I don't want to wear flats -- rainy days). I also work in the outdoor industry and have heard nothing but positive reviews from customers. I could not be happier with these boots! I was initially worried that there might be a bit of a break in period as the shoes have a leather upper, but that does not seem to be the case. My school schedule requires me to be on my feet for prolonged periods, and these shoes never hurt. I know it's difficult to find the right heel, but this one is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE These shoes are the best I have ever gotten. They are so comfortable, I was able to stand in them for hours. They run slightly small, so be cautious! Highly recommend and wish I could afford another pair!

Love these and will order them in every color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite wedges SO cute and practical at the same time - I get complimented every time I wear them out. The leather is high quality, and doesn't stretch out. Very comfortable, so I can wear on a long day on my feet. I have the black on black, but wish I could have every color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Find I live and work in almost every snow belt in our country I needed a boot to keep my feet dry and be functional and fashionable at the same time. I will buy no other brand . I will be a life long customer instead of once in a lifetime due to the quality not only of the boot but the quality of your customer service Ladies don't walk to buy this boot run....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style, comfort and function! I put off buying these because I am a flats girl. However, so many women at my office swear by their comfort, I finally broke down and bought a pair. I am so happy with these boots! They barely feel like I am wearing heals. The base is super stable, and the sole has excellent grip. These boots are also quiet. No clacking through the hallways! I ended up sizing down from my usual 9 to 8.5 and they fit perfectly (with light-medium socks) and are comfortable all day. Lastly, I have worn them in light rain, and also walked through wet grass with my dog, and my feet stayed dry. Well done Sorel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and comfortable These are my first sorel boos and I have nothing but good things to say about them. Very comfortable, they required no breaking in. They are very well made, warm and comfortable. I am a sneakers-girl and I felt like I could run a marathon in these boots.... That's how comfortable they are. They cost a pretty penny, but they are truly worth every one of them. I loved them so much that I ordered the light grey ones that I also love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally made the purchase and am in love! I've been looking at these boots for about a year and finally decided to buy them despite my guilt of spending $200+ on a single pair of shoes. But I couldn't be happier with the quality and style. I'm in my late 20's and look more for comfort than style in shoes, and these fit both of those marks in a single pair of boots. The 3" wedge is barely noticeable. I can stand in them for 5+ hours a day and barely notice there's elevation from ground level. Size is true-to-fit, perhaps ever so slightly skewed to be on the larger size. I'm a true 7 and size 7 fits perfectly with enough room to accommodate wool socks. They work well with skinny jeans (I have average sized calves and slightly small ankles) and can be loosened/tightened to fit different widths. The leather is of fine quality, the laces are sturdy yet stylish, and while I have not used them in standing water or snow, they have a barrier above the ankle making snow-melt-in-the-boot virtually non-existent. If only I had these when I lived in Boston... If you're considering these boots, I highly doubt you'll regret the purchase. I'm so glad I finally bought them and I'm sure you'll feel the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joan of arc wedge- black Probably the most comfortable wedge I have ever worn. The width of the shoe does fit slim.. still deciding on if they're really MY style but the comfort is beyond par. I would definitely recommend this shoe on comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joan Artic Wedge-Mid I lusted after these boots for two years and finally saw them offered on sale a few weeks ago and bought them. They are as comfortable as other reviewers say, and are super stylish and I'm able to pair them up with everything. A good sock is important in colder temps. At 59 Y/O, I love the long lean sleek look when I pair these black boots up w black Skinny Up pants. I have other Sorel wedges, and while I love them, these are my new favorites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them!!! I have several pair of the 1964 wedge boots which I also love but the Joan of Artic are my new favorite. They are very comfortable, great in the snow, and you can dress them up or down. I've worn them 4 days in a row. Which is crazy for me considering I have quite the show selection. I HIGHLY recommend them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable! These wedges are so comfortable. I wear them to the office, running errands, or out with the girls. They are a much shorter heel than they seem first glance. They do not scuff easily and do well in the rain. The only negative I have about these are the laces sometimes come undone easily. They are the round stiff leather laces and do not hold a tie well. Otherwise, I love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Wedges These are my favorite wedges this season. I ordered them in black! I had never ordered Sorel shoes before so was a little hesitant to order an expensive pair of shoes without being able to try them on in person first, but am so glad I did! These wedges are more comfortable to walk around in than most of the flat shoes I own. I wore them to a concert with lots of standing, dancing, and walking around and my feet were comfy the whole time. You can tell just by looking at them that they're well made and high quality. They're basic black wedges but also trendy and fashionable. I get compliments on them from strangers all the time. Everyone from high school aged girls, to housewives at the gym I go to. I wear an 8.5 in almost all shoes and these were no different. The fit perfectly. I've since purchased a pair of the 1964 wedges and plan to continue buying Sorel shoes in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lack of training One of the worst initial experiences with your company I could have had. No transparency what so ever between and within your supply chain and customer service. One person told me one thing, one person another, now I have two pairs of shoes and its my responsibility to pay for shipping back. Just really unsatisfied, as a 'high end' company, you differentiate yourself above all with superior customer service. Did not receive this shopping experience when dealing with Sorel at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this boot! I had tried the Lea wedge, but my heel slipped. I ordered this boot and have worn it daily since I have received it! No break in time, and very comfortable. The laces give me extra ankle security and I have already worn them in heavy rain with great results! I love these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!
