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 Absolutely The Best When I saw the wedges I thought they were super cute but would probably be uncomfortable. However I was stunned at just how comfortable the Joan of Arctic Wedge Mid-Boot is. The moment I slid my foot into the boot, I literally gasped and said, "Oh my God. This is heaven" I wear them almost every day. The traction is incredible. Not a day goes by that someone doesn't compliment the boots. Great job Sorel! This is my 3rd pair. As long as you keep coming out with cute boots, I'll keep buying no matter the cost. November 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New favorite boot! Absolutely love these! Comfortable and stylish. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of compliments Great look, great fit, great quality. Don't regret buying these for one second. Love. November 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth every penny Love these boots! Contemplated the purchase last year and pulled the trigger this year in time for fall/winter. Surprisingly comfortable, light weight, water proof and just a nice looking boot. Fit is true to size with wool socks. November 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, comfortable boot Love this boot! I haven't had a chance to test drive them in snow or on ice yet, but they are very comfortable, fit true to size and are great to wear all day long. I'm a 7.5 normally and the 7.5 fits great with a normal weight sock. November 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shoes ever! I absolutely love these!!!!!! Theyre extremely comfortable, perfect for all year around, and waterproof!?!?Literally, i can wear these all day! what more could you ask for, definitely worth the price, theyre my go to for everything! November 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Great boots - very comfortable to stand in for long periods of time, seem to fit very true to size (I wear an 8.5, and that's what I ordered - it fits great). I love these boots. November 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Boots made of butter This is a great boot. I have not had the boot very long. While the price tag is up there, based on the quality and construction, I expect this boot to last several years. I tried on the Nori and found the flexibility of the Grill to be much better more comfortable. The Nori takes on a more rugged look and is not as form fitting. I found that the combination of stiffness and the wedge made my stride clunky. As for the fit, I did size down. I am very familiar with my true size on both feet. I wear an 8 and while I have high arches, I have a very average foot shape. I normally wear a very flat shoe, Vans, Fryes and Toms. When I do wear a wedge, I feel very formal and like a slow walker. For anyone who is also like this, don't be weary of the wedge. It's slight, and feels sexy and girly but it doesn't change your stride into tiptoes or like you don't belong in a girly shoe. Review your budget and get the shoe! October 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish and comfortable I love these boots! I am on my feet for atleast 7 hours a day and they are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. They are great heading into fall weather and the leather is soft and rich. I am a size 7 and they fit perfect, however I do wear them mostly with thick socks. They are well worth the price for the amount of wear I have and will get out of them. October 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy and Stylish! They are one of the most comfortable heels (wedges) I have ever worn. October 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my Joan of Arctic Boots They fit great. Easy to walk in. Very light. Look great. October 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! I bought these boots last winter for the style and tread. These are the best of all worlds; fashionable, comfortable and good traction on slippery surfaces. I wore these almost every day and even in the summer for riding motorcycle. By far one of my best and most used purchases! October 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by They do run big. Pro: I got the black at first, then I returned them and got the grill. I love how they looked in both colors and they tie so quick and easy which I love when putting on and off. The traction they provide is second to none. The best I've tried by far, hands down. Am feeling confident about not slipping and sliding all over campus this winter. Cons: Ahh, I wear an 11, maybe in some cases a 10.5 but figured even though others have reported these running big, thick socks would do the job. I ordered them in an 11, and they were too big - to the point it felt wrong, even if I didn't trip or anything. So I returned them and reordered them in a 10. I received them and they are a bit too snug. I am keeping them, though, but they start to feel a little uncomfortable after several hours. I don't think I can wear a thick sock, but a regular one is ok. They aren't so tight that I would avoid wearing them, so I will keep them. But I am a bit bummed that they won't be the staple I hoped. I do recommend you try them, but beware of the shipping - returning them was kinda costly - then reordering, so it racks up a bit. I ordered 2 other styles in an 11 and they fit to perfection, so it's just this style out of the 3 I ordered. September 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this boot I bought this boot because I had purchased the Joan of Arctic tall wedge boot in Hawk and LOVED it so much that I wanted to get them in black...and they were sold out. So I opted for the short version, and have been super happy with them - perfect for everyday outdoor wear, around town, and inclement weather days. Very, very comfortable. I typically wear a 7.5 but bought these in 7.0 and they fit wonderfully. September 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lasting comfort I had been eyeing this boots for quite some time and read extensive reviews on several websites. I finally pulled the trigger and am hooked. These boots have been perfect for my trip to Switzerland. I have logged many miles in the towns of Bern, Gruyere, Lucerne, Thun, Zermatt and Wengen in these boots this September. These boots are waterproof (awesome since it has been raining on and off), their soles grip well on the slick cobblestone streets and the comfort-factor is a dream. I can either wear them with my bootcut jeans or tuck my skinny jeans into them and they keep me above the puddles in the streets. The wedge height may look intimidating, however with the thick sole, the heel itself isn't that much steeper than the front of the shoe and I haven't had any problems keeping my balance on the many boats, trains and buses I have taken. The boots are roomy, but I still marked them true to size since if you wear a typical "fall" or "winter" sock with them they fit just right. I like these boots so much that I just bought its taller "cousin", the Cate the Great Wedge. September 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by my new fav wedge I got these couple days ago and worn them to work today, I work standing up all day and it's so comfy. The leather is soft, great quality and the wedge is perfect angle so that your feet are not aching at the end of the day. I seriously want to get another pair of these in a different color. I am normally a size 7 & 7.5, these in 7 fits great. September 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Urban Hiking Boots I live in New York City so I'm constantly wearing out my shoes from biking, walking, training, busing, and just plain standing. These kicks are my number one choice. I even wear them to go dancing. Out of my most fabulous booties and heels, these last me from 12 AM to 7 AM on the dance floor. I bought these boots in March for a trip to Montreal. There were sheets of ice on the sidewalk and not only could I walk over ice comfortably, but my feet were warm and cushioned from all of the trekking I was doing around the city. Plus the fact that they fit true to size makes a huge difference. From late spring until now, these boots are my go-to. Even in the heat, my feet are comfotable. I folded down the top of the boot with the tongue to give it a bootie feel and it goes with just about every outfit. I can't recommend these boots enough. They're definitely the pair where I have to buy at least two more of just in case. These are my best booties for life. Thank you, Sorel design team! August 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these boots These are the most comfortable boots I own. I have flat feet so my feet can't handle shoes. Well I can work on my feet all day with these boots and have not one once of pain. These were my first Sorel purchase and I'm so pleased! April 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Leather exquisite As soon as I received this boot I was instantly in love. The smell of the leather was amazing. I am a true 8 and order it in 8, it fits perfectly, and still has room for thick socks. I was between the lighter color and the grill and ended up keeping the grill. It gives a sexy feel to your outfit. However I'm still considering getting both colours (or all three, if they were available in my size) because of the quality this boot is made off. The grip is amazing and they are very comfortable. The boot is also very versatile since I can wear them in warmer weather like Puerto Rico. March 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome I generally wear size 9, and that's what I purchased which fits great. Although I purchased these at the tail end of winter, I've worn them a few times through Philly's snow/slush and rain and I'm very satisfied! I've finally found a stylish and functional winter boot that I'm sure will last me many many years! I'm not the biggest fan of traditional clunky winter boots so these absolutely perfect. Also I'm starting grad school next year so it's been important to make good reliable purchases--- as I don't want to have to constantly replace wardrobe staples in the next 4-6 years... Thank you Sorel! March 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect wedge boot! I love this boot! Comfortable and wearable right out of the box with no "break in" needed. I did find it runs a bit large - I usually wear a 9, but the 8 1/2 fits perfectly. I am so impressed with this boot- I now have the sand color also! Somewhat expensive- but oh so worth it! March 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great in the Snow! I decided to buy this after reading reviews from people in snowy places. I live in Maine, so the way these boots hold up in snow was important to me. I wear a 7.5 US and 38UK, so choosing the size was difficult. I ordered the 7/38, which fits; however, if you want to wear thicker socks, I recommend you get a half-size bigger. The tread is AMAZING and better even than my other Sorels. I can walk in slush and snow confident that I won't slip. And, after having accidentally stepped in an ankle deep puddle, I can attest to their great waterproofing! They are pretty comfortable for a wedge heel and I have no problem wearing them for a long period of time. These look great with skinny jeans, but I have thicker calves, so I don't really like the way I look in them with a skirt. In short, I love these boots! March 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing What a great boot!! I am a true 9 and ordered the 9. It fits great with a thicker sock. Wore them right away for 6 hours and they were so comfy!! I got them in both colors as I was not sure which one I would like best and I am keeping them both! March 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cp49 Love them! Super comfortable but wish I had gotten an 8 instead of 81/2. After wearing a few times the have stretched enough that I should have bought half size smaller. Other than that I love them and the color too. Have gotten a lot of compliments on them from friends March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE, LOVE, LOVE... ...my new JOAN OF ARCTIC WEDGE MID BOOTS! Amazing fit, (half-size down) fashion forward, and comfortable. I was introduced to Sorel shoes while shopping at my local REI store and quickly fell in love with the style and fit. Unlike the rest of the country Seattle is having a warm fall and winter. Gonna wear my Joan's anyway. March 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fab I love this comfortable stylish waterproof boot. Not sure which I love more fashion systems not function. March 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible boots If you want a comfortable, classy, waterproof boot---look no farther than this classic. BEST purchase I've made in a while. Expensive but oh so worth it. I wear and 11 and the 11 fit perfectly. Not too big, just right. February 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE these boots! They are perfect for Michigan weather. If I'm going out and want to wear a heel but their is too much snow, these are perfect. The tread is wonderful! They are functional and stylish. These fit true to size for me. I wear an 8 and purchased an 8. Even with wool socks they fit. And come on, they're leather so eventually they will stretch out a bit. I receive many compliments when I wear them. All and all these are a lovely boot! Worth EVERY penny! February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE EM I LOVE <3 these boots. I usually wear a 7 or 7 1/2 and got these in a 7, they were a little roomy but good for thicker socks. They are not too warm if you are standing outside for a long time BUT they are the cutest snow/rain boots on the market. They have really good treds on them so you can trudge through snow and they are waterproof. I would even wear them in the spring with a skirt. I use the traditional Joan of Arcs for serious high snow but they ruin a dressy outfit so for small accumulations, they are my go to's! I love that they have a wedge, really the only snow boots I have seen with any heel or wedge. They are super comfy, I could stand in them or walk all day if I had to. I would definitely recommend getting them, the decision isn't if you should get them, but in what color? February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sooooo comfy!! These boots are extremely comfortable!! I am a bartender and have no problem wearing them for 8 hours straight. Highly recommend:) February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME BOOTS I bought these boots in Grill/Black for my sister. Based on many other reviews, I ordered down a 1/2 size, and they are a perfect fit. She usually wears an 8, but I got her a 7.5. She loves them! The Grill/Black has a great rugged look and lets the buckle details stand out. Very cool looking boots! February 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest winter boot ever! These boots are such a find -- stylish, warm and incredibly lightweight. I'm buying an extra pair because I love them that much. February 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fall boot! These boots are great - comfortable, warm and super light. I love to wear these with chunky socks, skinny jeans and a comfy sweater. Looking forward to taking these to Taos! February 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boot! I love this boot. I am in Minnetonka, MN and this boot is the right fit, great color (I have in the brown, but want the grill color as well). I feel very safe on the iced sidewalks, they have great grip and keep my feet warm. I am a 7.5 and wear thicker socks, but I don't think I would go smaller a smaller size even with a thinner sock. I have been able to go through TSA pre check with these (as with the Toronto boot) so for you travelers this is an added bonus at MSP. February 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best. Boot. Ever. This is hands down my FAVORITE boot. I live in Minnesota and even if you don't live here you have seen what our winters look like. This boot is more for fashion but it does have function to it. I'm not afraid to step in a puddle when the snow is melting. It also has fairly good grip for when it's icy. But it also isn't meant for long periods of time spent in sub-zero temps or anything. I said that this boot is true to size because I am between an 8 1/2 and a 9. I went with the 8 1/2 on this one. The only complaint that I have is that the colors on the website are extremely confusing. For Black, Grill the boot is all black. I wanted to gray ones (Grill, Black) so I returned my original size 9 for an 8 1/2 (I wanted a more snug fit) and I almost bought the same color again! They should have had more distinct differences in the color names as well as the pictures. Other than that, kudos Sorel! January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth Every penny! These boots are amazing! I used them for the first time on a trip to New Orleans, plenty of walking, and more walking: not one blister or sore area. It also rained but my feet remained dry. I wore them every day for 3 days, no issues at all and they are super stylish. Many compliments. They are very comfortable. January 26, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Quality boot, with a few flaws Ok, I admit I was a bit torn in terms of whether or not I liked this boot. It seemed like a somewhat practical and kind of fashionable choice for slippery weather in the winter. When it came down to it though, I found them to be just a bit too unfeminine (a few other reviewers described this boot as "mad max" or "thunder dome" and I have to agree. I'd add to that description, "goth-raver"). They are just a little too tall and clunky for me (I am 5'2" and 105 pounds so they just look silly on my frame). Anyways, they run big as many have mentioned and they are very lightweight and comfy. Well, one of the shoes was comfy. Not sure if this is a manufacturing defect or what but the right shoe in my pair had a seam that ran across the toe box and cut into my foot in the few minutes I wore them around the house. For what I paid (Sorel doesn't want us to tell you what we paid, but I'll say it was full price), this is just not acceptable. Other than that, I found the grill-black color to be very versatile. Despite the fact that there are very few options for cute wintery boots out there, these did not make the cut and are being returned. January 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love these boots! So cute and comfy. Great walking boot! Only reason why I didn't give 5 stars is because I have only had them for a week. But, so far I am a fan. January 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THESE!! TRUE TO SIZE! These shows are great! Very cute & stylish & you can walk in them all day! I'm just not sure why people keep saying to size down... maybe they aren't really sure on what their true foot size is, but these boots fit true to size. I am always a 7 in boots, but I followed the reviews & sized down to a 6.5. That was a bad decision because they were too small & I had to pay to ship them back. My toes were touching the front of the shoe when I would walk in them & they are wedges so you need a tiny bit of room in the front because your foot is slanted down so when walking it may go forward a little having your toes right against the front of the shoe. I ended up ordering the 7 & it fits perfectly!! These shoes are so comfy I can't wait to wear them on my trip to NY where i will be walking a whole lot. January 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THESE BOOTS! These boots are great. They look great with leggings or under jeans. You don't have to worry about your calf size since they are lace up. They have decent soles for the winter season and they fit like a glove. I have a narrow foot and they feel really good. The first day I wore them I was on my feet for 12 hours with no issues. January 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome and Comfortable Love these. Super cute and easy to wear. Great on snow and ice. My only gripe is that sometimes the shoelaces seem to come untied fairly easily. January 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish and Practical I have Cate the Great sorels from a few years ago and was like for a not so obvious boot to wear out during the snowy cold days in Chicago. When I saw these, I was immediately in love, and purchased after reading all the rave reviews. These shoes are as stylish and comfortable as everyone raves them to be. The Grill color is perfect. I was worried about salt with the dark color, but easily brushes off without leaving residue on the leather. Love these boots and totally worth the price...my Cate the Great's were the same price and almost 5 years old, still wear well and look almost new. January 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by RIGHT BOOT SQUEAKS!! I was very excited to order these boots as soon as they were available in my size online. When they finally arrived, I noticed a few things: the black has a little green in it, and when i wore them, my right boot squeaked - NOTICEABLY LOUDLY. Otherwise, they are very warm and comfortable. They're a little large, but perfect for thicker socks in the cold weather. I am currently looking into exchanging them. January 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by keep snowing! It doesn't even snow to much in Philly so buying a high-heel snow boot (when I already have a cute Sorel snow boots) was not that practical but I couldn't help myself. I got them, love them and look forward to the next snow day to wear them! I can walk for days and the tread is very sturdy, I cant imagine slipping... and Im a klutz! I want to get the tan pair but think that would be over doing it... we will see. January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best boot These boots are awesome! They fit true to size. They are warm and extremely comfortable. I LOVE how they look and get compliments all the time!! I feel safe and sturdy walking on the snow. Worth every penny, great quality. I am now a Sorel girl. January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Comfortable! I love these boots. They are warm, truly waterproof and the most comfortable boots I own. I walk around NYC all day every day and my feet feel like they're in heaven. Much like the other reviewer, I'm strongly considering getting a second pair. On top of all of this, they're really stylish. Love, love, love these boots. January 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by gorge! I LOVE these boots! They look fantastic, and they are VERY comfortable. This is my third pair of Sorel boots and they all seem to fit true to size for me. They are well made, and feel sturdy. I have no complaints at all. They are worth every penny. January 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE These I don't think I've ever loved a pair of shoes so much in my life. These look so cool, and I feel like a million bucks when I wear them. Perfect balance of style, comfort, and warmth. Order a half size smaller than what you wear. My foot size is a solid 9- just a tiny smidgen bigger, so I usually wear size 9-9.5 depending on the shoe... I read the reviews here and decided to trust them and ordered a 8.5 in these, which I was pretty nervous about because I never wear anything less than a 9, but the 8.5 is perfect on my size 9 feet, with and without winter socks on. Super comfortable. I do not like wearing heels. I won't wear heels even if they are a tiny bit uncomfortable. When I wear these boots, I feel that sexiness you feel when wearing heels from the extra height, but my feet and my legs don't feel the pain. And I wear these nearly every day, for nearly the entire day. They're pretty warm! I have trekked through the snow and ice in these, and they stood up to it pretty well! Only once have my feet felt cold, but I think it's a circulatory problem. After I opened these, I spent at least 5 minutes just looking at them and admiring how well made these are. Totally worth the money. And even though the guidelines tell me not to write about customer service- I just have to. Sorel is GREAT! Customer service is exactly the way all customer service SHOULD be. Thumbs up, high five, endless thanks Sorel- you guys rock. January 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Joan of Arctic Wedge These boots are very comfortable, I never have any problem being on my feet all day with them on. They are warm and look great too, I also get a lot of compliments on the styling of the boot and who makes them. I would recommend these boots to anyone who wants function and fashion all in one style. January 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by In love I'm in between size 61/2 and 7 for most shoes. I ended up fitting the size 61/2. Like the other reviews, these are absolutely comfortable! I have worn them to work, walk in them for 4 hours straight and they are amazing! I love the look (grill/black), it's very unique and easy to wear. If you are unsure and torn in between getting them or not. Do yourself a favor and get them! Tempted to buy a 2nd pair, which never happens. This is how much I love them! December 30, 2014
