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.

Women’s Medina™ III Rain Heel Boot is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Medina On a Sunny Day These boots are awesome! Based on the reviews, I ordered 1/2 size up and the fit with socks was perfect. I have long, almost archless, narrow feet. As soon as I put them on, they were comfortable and added that certain edge to my outfit. Although I live in Seattle, I could not wait for a rainy day so, I am wearing them in dry weather. Sorel is the best of the best - edginess, comfort and QUALITY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not very practical but VERY pretty The boots are gorgeous but the heel is very high for rainy weather (slip hazard). More appropriate if you mostly drive to places.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boots! These boots are made for dancing in the rain! They're super comfortable and seem to be durable too. I couldn't have found a more comfortable boot. The heel is thick and firm so you never feel wobbly, the shoes sole is textured and grips well so that even in the most slippery conditions you'll sashay with total confidence. I love them! My only gripe is that one of my shoes is slightly smaller than the other, which is odd but it doest bother me when I'm walking i just wear thick socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot - All Day Comfort! Looking at this boot you would never guess it but this is the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. I can walk in it all day and never be uncomfortable even for a second. I was going on line today to buy a second pair and see they are being clearanced and my all black pair is no longer available - totally bummed- LOVE this boot! They are perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Boot I love this boot. Great for cold, rainy weather but still super stylish. Although the description says it runs small I found it to be a bit large. I usually wear a size 9 in closed toed boots. However, this design was too big and my heel was slipping. I am planning to exchange them for a size 8.5, hopefully this will be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High-Performance Style + Comfort LOVE these shoes! (LOVE.) Cannot recommend them highly enough — to the point that I'm now worried they'll someday be discontinued. My professional life requires *lots* of walking and long days, in rain and weather, in client clothes (as opposed to play clothes), and these shoes are *perfect* for all of it! Incredibly comfortable. Ridiculously stylish. Surprisingly quiet. Amazing! Most important, though: THESE SHOES RUN SMALL. Surprisingly small. My thanks to the other product reviewers, as I followed their astute advice regarding the above. I ordered a size-and-a-half larger than my normal size, and out of the box, they fit beautifully. Sorel, please, don't ever discontinue these beauties!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kind of hurts I have the Joan of Arctic wedge booty, the Cate the great tall wedge and the Joan of Arctic winter boot, all in a size 8, and I loooove them all! These Medina iii 's, I'm not so sure about. They are narrow so they fit pretty snug even with thin socks. They don't have much give for your arches (translation they will be sore) since they do not lace up. They are pretty difficult to get on and off without laces or zippers. And they are all rubber so you get pretty toasty. All that being said, they are adorable and do they job of an attractive waterproof rain high heeled boot. I am a diehard Sorel fan, the only reason I bring these discrepancies to light is because it's a lot of money to drop (even on sale) for a pair of boots that may or may not be comfortable. I would totally recommend these boots to someone with narrow feet and low arches, but for everyone else, it's a bit of a gamble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No "kankles"! At first I was hesitant in this purchase because usually ankle booties don't elongate my legs or don't make my legs look shapely even though I am petite on the slim side. I wanted the Sorel Medina II but they are sold out in my size. But I needed to replace my comfortable high heel all weather boots and decided to buy the Medina III. I am so impressed I had to create this account just to write a review! Not only are they super comfortable but they are very elegant to wear with dresses and stockings. They are great dress up or dress down. I am very pleased. My boots did not have any scuffs as some reviews I read. They had a nice sheen to them. I wish I signed up for Sorel back then. I would have saved so much money on high heel boots and booties. Sorel is now my go to company for boots!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality does not live up My husband purchased these boots for me in December and in less than two weeks after wearing them a couple of times the bottom part of the heal separated. I love the way these feel and look so I returned the damaged ones to Nordstrom and bought two more pairs when Sorel had them on sale. Over the last year I have purchased 7 pairs of Sorel shoes they are the most comfortable. But the quality over time is less than to be desired. Especially when your spending so much on each pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best boot ever I've heard about these boots for years, but always talked myself out of buying them. I now regret that I didn't buy them sooner. I absolutely love them. They are the most comfortable shoe I have, are great in snow and ice, and are easy to wipe down when needed. If you are on the fence about buying them...go for it. I don't think you will regret it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and great looking As others have said, these run 1/2 size too small. Also are narrow but I have a slender foot. Get tons of compliments on these. Love how comfortable they are even with a high heel. Great traction in snow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Even More Comfy Than I had Hoped! It's true, they are a little snug, especially if you plan on wearing thicker socks. Then I would size up, but only a half size. I can tell they are well made, and they are a delight to wear! However, like some others mentioned, when they arrived one shoe already had some scuffing, like they had been worn. I got them in black, so they would go with more outfits, but I kind of wish I had gone for the red to have a pop of color! Overall, I am very satisfied. While these are practical, I am stoked about their versatility!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Rain Booties EVER I bought these in the red/black and I absolutely love them. I get compliments on them wherever I go. When I tell people they're rain booties and waterproof etc, they're shocked that they are so fashionable :-) I want these in every color, my next purchase will be the black/black, as they will go with everything and elongate the legs with black leggings. I bought a 9.5 which I usually am in Sorel, but I wished I had gotten a half size up in a 10, as they do fit a bit snug and they're pull-ons, plus to wear with socks, leggings etc. Overall I am obsessed with these booties, and can't wait to get each color! I have the Medina I and Medina II, and love that these fit so well in the Pacific Northwest culture! Thank you Sorel, delivered once again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but not quite perfect I love this shoe I really love the red color it came in , the fit (I went a .5 size up), and the style. However, there are numerous things that bother me as well for a shoe that retails at a $170 I should not find superficial flaws when it is brand new there were little scuffs on my boot ,and the way the heel is glued to the base is was not done seamlessly these things do not affect the overall functionality of the shoe but did bother me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wishing for snow and rain! I am in love with these boots! Like many others, I also sized up. It's great addition to my wardrobe to serve as a more formal alternate to my Hunters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect heeled winter boots I needed a heeled boot to wear with my longer jeans in the winter months and these are perfect!!! They have a nice heel size to them but do not sacrifice comfort. These are extremely comfortable and cute!! Even better, they are waterproof, making them ideal in the snowy winter months. I bought the solid black so they would go with everything. They can be casual or dressed up, worn with pants or skirts. Absolutely LOVE them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy rain boots do exist! I read the reviews and had to try these because I love shoes that make me taller without killing my feet. Too often style is compromised when it's raining but not with these boots! Surprised how lightweight they are and so so comfy!!!
Date published: 2016-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can they make this style every year? These are the best rain boots ever. I want to wear them even when it's not raining. I've bought two already and want more. I do recommend going a half size up if you plan on wearing thick socks. If you only plan to wear that with thin socks or tights, get your true size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Medina III Upon receiving the boot, it was an effortless order. The boot itself arrived a little scuffed up, but, it fit like a glove. The fitting was a necessary size higher due to the fact that it's a slip on(shoved in...) pull over type of boot. However, the color material is of a typical fisherman polyurethane type of boot and I'm okay with that. The fit IS sexy and super comfortable... *MY 1st allure in a "rain boot"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! This boot/heel is like nothing I have owned. It is practical, completely versatile and sharp! The boot seems to run slightly small depending how you like your shoes to fit. The quality and comfort is what you would expect from Sorel. I ordered the black/black and they are perfect. I love the idea of wearing these in any weather condition while having the comfort, functionality and style that I want! They are worth the price tag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots!! I fell in the love the minute I saw these boots. I thought they were unnecessary, but I bought them anyway. Totally necessary! I wear them all the time. SO comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Can you guess that I love these boots! I was very skeptical when I saw them. I mean, rubber boots for $150. That's crazy. Then I started to read the reviews and I thought well, I'm on my feet all day, I guess I could try them. So glad I did. They are the most comfortable boots, I've ever owned (and I own a lot of boots#! They run a bit small, so I went a .5 size up and with an insert, they fit like a glove. They are not insulated so they will keep your feet dry but not too warm. I like these so much, I'm going to buy another pair! (I'm not kidding)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cushion for days! I saw these shoes flooding Instagram and I had to have them. Holy cow, am I glad I did! I was really hesitant since I live in NYC and I walk a ton and they also were pricey. Now I've gotten 4 people to buy them because that's how comfortable they are! I always get complements on them! I'm thinking about buying a second pair for when my first wears down. I wear them especially when going out! Rain, salt, snow, oh well! These babies are amazing! I went with the black/black. Size 9. So true to size! I still can't get over how comfortable these are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection. I am picky about my heels because if they aren't comfortable, they will end up collecting dust in my pocket. I really wanted a pair of black chunky boots, and when I saw these, and the reviews on comfort, I had to give them a shot. 4 inches is my limit without a huge platform, so I was hesitant to believe the reviews. Anyway, they arrived and they are everything! I love how I can still be stylish in wet weather, but these are nice enough to wear when it's dry. I wore them out last night to dinner and a movie, which included some walking and my feet felt great. My legs also looked a mile long. I usually wear a 7 in boots, which gives me room for socks. I went with a 7.5 and they are perfect. I would say with thin or dress socks. I doubt I'll be stuffing wool socks in these. The rubber won't give like leather, so def size up a half. I have wide feet and my little toe did not feel crushed at all, which is common for me. I was concerned the vulcanized rubber would be heavy, but the shoes did not weigh me down at all. These boots are well worth the value and I see me getting a lot of mileage out of them. I got the all black because the primary colors on the cuff just wouldn't match with everything like classic all black would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT boot A grown woman's rain boot. Incredibly stylish and also practical for those rainy months. Fits slightly narrow in the toe- which is to be expected. Comfortable and stable heel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, yes, and yes I usually gravitate to chunky platform shoes, but occasionally a less daunting style comes along that I find irresistible. That's the story with this pair. I had purchased a high heel rain boot from another maker, but found it much too narrow for my already narrow foot. So I picked up the Medina III as possible alternative, and I fell in love. It has the heel height I crave, and it's extremely wearable. This pair is going with me to visit my kids in Brooklyn as just a casual walking around NYC boot. I love the look. I love the feel. I love the fit. Sorel delivers once again. Maybe that's why I've got six other Sorel styles in my closet at the moment!
