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 Disappointed but still love them Don't get me wrong, I mostly love these boots. There are just a couple things about them that do NOT make them worth the price. They are mostly comfy but they aren't made for girls with high arches. The seam that attaches the tongue to the toe box hits just under one of the D-rings so it digs into the top of my foot. Also, no one at Sorel (or anywhere else,) can tell me how to care for these. The toes have scuffed and there are divots in them but I don't know how to "polish" this brushed leather. The fabric is cool looking but not very tough. Kinda bummed but still wearing them! I hope they last a while though, and I'm not convinced they will. May 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Boots So comfortable!! Love them! April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable Great boots, you can wear them all day.I would definitely recommend them. I received many compliments. March 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect all weather boots I live in Portland, OR so I was looking for a solid walking boot that can stand up to plenty of rain and mud. I also have soccer player calves so most tall boots don't work for me, but these are just the right height. On top of that, I love the way they lace up, they emphasize my small ankles but allow for the dramatic curve of my calves. They are easy to wear regularly and I walk .5 - 1 mile to get to class, then another .5 - 1 mile to get to work, etc. ad nauseum all day. In other words, I am taking fairly brief walks repeatedly throughout the day and my feet don't hurt. I am probably going to get these boots in other colors and stock up :) March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love, love, love! I'd been eyeing these boots up for the past year or so but never took the plunge to buy them...well when I stopped by the page again and saw them on sale, just had to have them. They are incredibly true to size comfortable and stylish. I wish I'd bought them earlier. I didn't even have to unlace them, just slipped them right on right out of the box. March 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love love I first saw these boots on Instagram a few weeks ago and totally fell in love. When I saw they were on sale, I immediately ordered them. These boots are amazing! As other reviewers have said, they are seriously the most comfortable boots you will ever wear. And so versatile! Perfect for rainy/snowy days or any other kind of day. I love the grill color--it's in-between black and brown, so they match with pretty much everything. The fit is true to size, with room for a thicker sock on chilly days. All in all, I highly recommend these boots--I've even gotten two friends to order them! February 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredibly comfortable! I love this boot! It is one of the most comfortable boots I have ever tried on. Unfortunately, the sizes run a little large and I had to return. Waiting for it to come available in my size again! February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Quality Boot Just received these boots and they are beautiful! They are very well made and look to be a boot that will last a long time. I ordered an 8.5. I think they fit a little large, but then again, I purchased these boots living in Arizona. So, if you live in cold country, they'll probably fit perfectly, as you'll probably be wearing thick socks with these. I love that these are wedge boots. I'm 5'2", so any added height is always good! They seem very versatile too..I could wear these under jeans, outside of jeans/leggings or even with dresses, and probably shorts too. They are also extremely comfortable. Hope these boots will be around for years and years to come! February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots It took me two weeks of looking at these boots to finally order them, the comfort is unbelievable! I can wear these boots all day and still not want to take them off. I love these boots!!! January 22, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Colors are deceiving! I love this boot and have it in the true black color. The color name of this boot is deceiving, as the actual boot is a very dark, distressed brown with black where the lace buckles are. I was looking for an all black boot. Besides the color, this boot is amazing! Gave it an average rating based on the color alone, not the fit or style. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fashionable winter boot!!! I love these boots! So cute and fashionable for the days it's too cold or too icy to wear heels! I am usually a 9.5 in boots, but I have a narrow foot so these were a little too roomy in the toe even with a thicker wool sock on. I'm exchanging for the 9. Hopefully they fit! January 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So many compliments! My sister bought these last year & I loved them, so I purchased this year. They're comfortable, cute and I get a lot of compliments on them. I wear them with skinny jeans, leggings, and even a skirt. Super functional / fashion. Maybe not snow boots but I get a lot of wear out of them! January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Boots Ever! I've worn boots my whole life and have never before experienced such comfort, especially from anything with a heel. I got Sorel house slippers for my birthday this year and the Sorel Joan of Arctic Wedges for Christmas... I think I'm never buying any other brand of shoes again. I've been wearing them every day now with absolutely no discomfort from day one, and can't wait to take them on my upcoming trip to Vail. They're so comfortable, I could sleep in them (I just may)! January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite shoe!! I get comments on these shoes every time I wear them! Not only are they an attractive style, they are also very comfortable. I do not like heels, but these are just short enough for me to handle, I've even stood on them at work for 8 hours straight! They have great traction and are water proof and warm, just what I need when it's snowy and below zero for months at a time. They are fashionable, yet functional. Absolutely LOVE these shoes. I wear a size 7-71/2 usually and the 7's fit great with regular socks or my wool socks. January 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tons of Compliments and Performs Perfectly I originally ordered these boots in the 8.5 as that's my normal size. They were way too big, even with thick socks. I returned them for the 8 and they fit better. I wore them on NYE in the mountains and the traction was great, they were warm and very cute and comfy. I received compliments all night and everyone noted how small they make my feet look. January 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best boots ever Love love these boots. Style and comfort in one. They look so great with leggings and skirts. And they feel like clouds. Walked through chicago downtown shopping and didn't miss a beat! I'm buying another pair for my back ups in case they get to worn! December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my boots This is the second pair that I have purchased of these boots. They are very comfortable and very easy to take on and off. Best boots. They are awesome all day. Many friends who are on their feet because of retail jobs,are also very happy with how long they can wear them and still be very comfortable. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible, amazing, ridiculously perfect boot! I am so obsessed with these boots I hardly know how to contain my feelings. I almost wore them to the gym today, that's how consistently I want them on my feet! I read a ton of reviews before purchasing, and none of the ladies who went before me led me astray. They are simply amazing: comfortable, stylish, well-made and if you put these on blindly, you'd NEVER know you were wearing a wedge unless you looked down. I cannot wait to rock these every day for the rest of the winter! Move over Ugg, these are the new frontrunners of cold weather fashion! December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So comfortable and stylish I haven't had these boots for very long, but I absolutely love them! I took advice from some other reviews to buy a half size smaller, and they were too small. I should have trusted the manufactures sizing, because they were true to size ! I am tempted to buy them in another color as soon as I can afford another pair. I have the grill black and love the color! December 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Oh. Em. Gee! These boots have so totally rocked my world. It's like walking on clouds, and I put in many miles walking around a school for 7 hours a day in these things. I was afraid of the "grill" look (would they look like seared steak?) but the effect is so subtle and tasteful (no pun intended). Classy, feminine, comfy, stylish...do not be afraid of the wedge at all. Adds enough height for you to reach the top cabinet, but not to feel like a Neanderthal. I ordered these a half size smaller than my usual and they are perfect, with room to spare for thicker winter socks. Roomy toe box for my wider-than-average feet. I will wear these everywhere, with everything..possibly even on the treadmill. One of the best things about them is that the heel is lightweight and rubbery, so they don't make a clunky sound when you walk on hard floors! In fact, they are silent. These are well worth the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I will have to eat for the next few weeks to pay for them. I will rock these and a smile for years to come. December 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Perfect Boot! I wore these boots for a week long trip to Prague in mid-December. It was not very cold, just around 30-40F, so I can't speak too much for warmth. However, there was a day about 55F and my feet were too warm. The boots were a bit big, going down half a size helped with ankle support. (Usually a 7.5, wore a 7) With thin socks I could put in little archies, so if you are putting in full insoles, stick with your regular size. The comfort level of these doesn't require additional padding, though. I have a bunion and fracture on the left foot, two torn ligaments on the right. Finding a shoe comfortable for all of these problems is challenging, but these fit the bill perfectly. It was rainy, wet and slippery. That plus the ancient walking paths made me nervous to wear a new pair of shoes. These were resilient! We sporadically went hiking one day, not wearing the appropriate clothing or anything, but these fantastic shoes got me through it. Steep incline, wet, uneven, 1 mile each way. Overall, in one week, I walked 60 miles in these shoes. Obviously my feet were sore due to 60 miles, but NO pain, no blisters. These shoes are literally the best purchase of my life. So happy!!! December 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOMEN’S JOAN OF ARCTIC WEDGE™ MID BOOT Decided to buy this boot as a birthday gift to myself last year and it's one of the best purchases I've ever made! Not only is the soft foot bed beyond comfortable, they are great in the rain, the snow and the cold. These were my winter boots this last winter and, I did double up on socks, but the boots kept my feet dry. They've become my everyday shoe. And I get complimented on them at least once a day. The shoe strings seem to fray easily where they rub against the string loops, but are still entact. Great shoe, great construction, great comfort, great look! December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my Joan of Arctic wedges... These wedges are awesome. Beautiful, functional, and most of all comfortable. I would love to get another pair...(may just have to) :) December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW!! So great looking on feet and the height.....Wow! I personally had to go 1/2 size smaller which i never do for a perfect fit. Took twice to get it right and was full of anxiety till i secured my pair! Costly, but so in love with these boots. December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Boots Love. These. Boots. I do a lot of walking and these boots are super comfortable. I love how they make me taller but without the discomfort of most healed boots. They look great with dresses and jeans. No regrets. Buy em for sure!!!! December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Insanely comfortable Great style, extremely comfortable. It doesn't even feel like you are wearing heels. A bit tall in the ankle, but easy to walk in. Great color, got many compliments on them. December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best boots ever! I had been eyeing these boots for a year and I am so glad I bought them! They are so cute and go with everything and are comfortable enough to wear every day! The wedge heel is he perfect height to give some lift but not be uncomfortable. I got a 7 (my usual size) and they fit nicely, roomy enough to to wear thick socks. Buy these!! December 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect purchase A friend of mine purchased these boots and was raving about them. Honestly, I was rather hesitant due to the price and the fact they have the high wedge. Well, I tried her boots on and instantly knew I was destined to purchase a pair. The boots fit true to size so don't order a size up or down. They are very comfortable. I'm used to wearing flats or little heel but find these boots extremely comfortable and wear them all day. They're perfect with the no slip sole and being water proof. They look stylish with skinny jeans or leggings. I love them too because they're not the typical boots you see everyone wearing. Glad I stepped outside the box and bought these boots. Oh, and the quality is definitely worth the price! December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite boots! These boots are very comfortable. I usually wear size 8.5, but after reading other reviews I went for a size 8. I am glad I went for the size 8, they fix perfectly. December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing boot! I can't rave enough about this amazing sorel boot. It is practical, stylish and comfortable. I love it!!!! December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great design & function I normally wear a size 6.5. With all of the reviews saying they fit slightly large, I intended on purchasing a size 6 but they were out of stock. I settled on a 6.5 and they fit pretty well and are only slightly big. Since they cinch around the ankles tightly, my feet don't slide around in them as they would in most shoes that are too big. I do think a size 6 would have been perfect, but I am definitely keeping them. These have quickly become a staple in my wardrobe. They are so versatile to wear with jeans or dresses/skirts. They are INSANELY comfortable. I cannot typically wear heels to work as I do a lot of walking & standing, however, I can wear these all day at work and walk several miles in them without even a twinge of discomfort. One of the reviewers said they feel like butter, and I completely agree. They leather is very soft, and even though they say they are waterproof, I worry about wearing them in the rain as to not mess up the leather. I wish we hadn't just painted the interior of our house the day the arrived so I could smell the "fresh out of the box leather smell." December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy & Fashionable I love these boots. I had been eyeing them for awhile and finally took the plunge and made the purchase! I love them. They are extremely comfy; I could walk miles in these without my feet hurting and I'd look good walking those miles. December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Order Size Down, Perfect Boot I love this boot so much that I bought a second pair. I bought them when they first came out in Black and my size of 8.5 at Nordys. I loved them, but noticed they were too big and they looked too big. I could handle it if they were big, but looking big is another issue. I bought my second pair in Grill/Black and love them. Purchased a half size down and they fit perfectly. Order half size down. December 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Joan of Artic Boot Great boots! Love the color I chose. I can't walk in heels to save my life; wedges I do OK. They're very comfortable. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by best boot ever i love these boots i wore them all over town walked over 3 miles that day great fit no pain December 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE BOMB The JOAN OF ARCTIC WEDGE MID BOOT is simply the coolest boot I have ever worn. They are stylish and different, which catches the eye, and super comfortable. They have a little height, but you wouldn't know it. I have walked all day in them without any issue. Pair them with jeans or leggings..... even a skirt. I'm inclined to buy another pair in case they don't make them in the years to come..... LOVE THEM! December 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best.shoes.ever. Most comfortable wedges imaginable. Grill black is a really interesting color. Love them. December 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth every penny! These boots are by far my best boot purchase ever! I went with the reviews and bought a 1/2 size up but really didn't need too. Without thick socks the boots feel a little big. Omg! They are so comfortable. I thought for sure it would take wearing them a few times but the first day I wore them for over 8 hours and my feet didn't ache once! These are perfect for slippery conditions whether it be snow or rain, I never felt like I was going to slip and slide. They are expensive but totally worth it. I'll always buy Sorel boots! December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome These boots are so comfy!! You would never think they were a.wedge heal., could walk hours in them one of my fav from sorel so many compliments.. defiantly would recommend December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots I bought these because I own a pair of the women’s major lace boots that I have been wearing obsessively. Love them! I have narrow feet and the major lace boots allow me to lace them more tightly and make them fit really well. (They also have arches!) Sadly, they are not waterproof. So, I ordered these Joan of Arctics to wear for the winter. So stylish! Well done, Sorel. The wedge is nice and the gray color very versatile. They have an arch and are pretty comfortable. The only thing I would change is the lacing method: these lace through D-rings, but the major boots lace through a wider piece of material. That makes them much easier to adjust for narrow feet—and extremely comfortable. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous Boots These are my go to boots, I have 2 pairs now & hope to have more. They are so comfortable, I love the wedge, it seems to offer support & I have problem feet! I hope they keep this style going, they can be dressed up or dressed down. I can't wait to try on a pair of the higher boots that are similar in style. I can wear this boot all day without aches & pains. A great overall boot. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I believe! Never had sorel boots before. Bought these because of the review and I'm so glad I did! I wore them all weekend when I went out of town. That included a lot of walking and a lot of hills. My feet never once hurt. So not only are they comfortable but they're stylish. I love these boots and will buy more styles from sorel now! December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! Can't say enough about these boots. They are incredibly comfortable. I am a teacher and am on my feet all day and I was able to comfortably wear them all day! They are super stylish and warm. They fit true to size I got both a 6 and a 6.5 and ended up going with the 6. Definitely worth the money! December 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why don't you own these boots yet? Great boots. True to size and comfortable right out of the box! The quality is apparent. Waterproof and great treads for walking in the rain. I love that they're wedge heals, gives them a more elevated style (especially for "rain boots")! Perfect for fall/winter in New England. I will probably buy a second pair as soon as I can. December 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmth, style and comfort I have been looking at Sorel and Timberline wedge boots for a few months. Frankly due to the black Friday sale, I took the leap and went for the more expensive Sorel, Joan of Arc, Grill. Love them! I've worn them for up to 9 hours, with a long wool skirt and with skinny jeans. They are the perfect combination of style, comfort and warmth. December 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy I am in love with these boots. This is my first pair of Sorel boots and I'm very impressed. Super comfortable and very stylish. The wedge gives me a little more height but doesn't compromise the comfort and the fact that its waterproof is just awesome. I will be buying more thank you Sorel November 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Excellent!! Excellent!! Excellent!!. No other words can describe this beauty. Comfort is the word that goes well with this product. I wore whole day long, No Problem November 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like walking on air! I had my eye on these for a while and finally ordered them. I was a little concerned about the height of the heel but these are possibly the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I've spent hours on my feet in them with no problem. They are slightly big with regular socks but fine. I've worn them in rainy weather and in a bit of snow, great traction. HIGHLY recommend! November 26, 2015
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
