Women's Slimpack Riding™ Tall Boot 4.5 5 213 213
Great boot but very mis-sized I didn't read all 200-something reviews on the Slimpack but it's hard to believe my size 7 foot is different from anyone else's size 7 foot! Last winter, I ordered the Joan of Arctic in a 6.5 after reading that the boot ran big. It was too small but I also thought it was way too clunky and too much boot for me, so it got returned. I decided to order the Slimpack next in a 7 because it had an urban style with it's leather shaft yet warm and winterproof. The 7 was still too small! Keep count: this is return #2. I spoke to customer service, and was told different styles were sized differently. Because it was the end of the winter, they ran out of sizes, so I had to wait until the summer when Slimpack was restocked. Fast forward to summer 2014, I order Slimpack in 7.5. STILL too small. Really? I also needed someone to help pull them off me. Return #3. I couldn't believe I had to order a size 8 but I did. They came, and they were still too small. Do these sizes go up by centimeters?? I even tried them on with thin socks and I could see my big toe poking through the rubber front. I called customer service because I really needed guidance and counseling because I truly was tired of going to the post office. At this point, I was determined to own a pair of Slimpack boots. She suggested going to a size 9, especially if I was going to wear thick socks. I was worried they would swim on me around the calf. I did order the 9s, and they fit. Let's not forget Return #4, however. So the 9s stay. I can wear thick socks, I can remove the boots on my own, and they aren't over bulky in the calf area. Overview: I will love my Slimpacks and use them well in NYC winters. However, I'm hesitant to make another Sorel purchase because I never ever want to return four pairs of footwear again.

Staple boot for winter I recently moved to New England this past year from the South and did not have boots to weather the tough winters here. These boots have worked great during fall, winter, and spring (bought them in early November). My feet stay warm and dry in snow and rain, though I probably wouldn't use these to go hiking in deep snow. They are a little bit difficult to pull off since they are tight around the ankles, but I wear them around my office all day as well as walking in Boston for day trips and they do great. The gray goes with everything; I'd really like to try some of the other colors. I usually wear a 7.5 or 8, so I ordered the 8 to leave room for wearing thick wool socks, and this size was great for thick socks in winter or thinner socks when I'm wearing them more for rainy weather. I get compliments all the time from friend and acquaintances--so they are cute yet functional as well. Highly recommend these boots! May 10, 2014
Wore them everyday! I love these boots! Not only are they functional (warm, comfortable, great in snow, slush or rain), but they look great too. (Lots of compliments!) I don't normally spend this much on boots, but they were worth every penny. I ordered my normal shoe size and they were snug as I put them on the first few weeks, but stretched out and slide on more easily now. I wore wool socks most of the time for extra warmth. If you don't plan to wear thick socks, they may feel a bit big after they stretch out around the ankle which allows more movement in the foot bed. My only complaint is that the external stitching near my instep (where the brown leather is sewn to the gray), became looped on both boots and looks unfinished. I was going to send a picture to the company to see what they would do or take it to a shoe repair store near me but didn't want to have to send them back or leave them for repair because I didn't want to be without them even for a day, so the loops remain. Maybe in May I'll be able to part with them long enough to have them repaired. :) March 27, 2014
Fab Boots Okay, I read all the reviews and the size IS a true fit. If you are like me and have a high arch they are a little snug to get into. Now, a piece of advice...if you put a plastic grocery bag on your foot (I know odd) with the toe open your foot will slip right in (then you can rip it out). It really works!! Love them and so do all my friends...and strangers when I wear them. March 23, 2014
MY size 11-1/2 - 12'z are too long I really like the look of these boots but, heres the thing, I have big/long feet & I couldn't get them down the shaft of the boot into the footbed. I am SO bummed. I really liked the looks of these boots! March 21, 2014
LOVE them! I didn't think it was possible to love snow boots this much! I had no idea what I was missing out on. I ordered my usual size and they fit a little snug but definitely not too small. March 20, 2014
Prepare to get stopped in these boots! What can I say... love, love, love these boots! Every time I wear them someone stops me to rave about the boots and ask what brand they are. They are so comfortable, you can wear them all day! I own them in two colors. Do not hesitate, buy them and make your feet and the fashionista in you happy! March 15, 2014
fashionable I wear skirts and needed a taller "winter" boot that would look stylish with skirts and be functionable in the Indiana winters! This has been one of the worst winters and I've regretted every step outside in my UGG boots. These keep my feet dry and warm enough. However I would wear thicker wool socks if I would be out longer. I get compliments everywhere and love them. They are a little tough to get off but nothing any other boot wouldnt be like. They were shipped super fast. I would recommend these and the only reason I didnt give a great 5 star rating is bc I believe the toe part and shaft could be more insulated for the cost. Just my opinion though :) March 6, 2014
Great Rain Boots I would have given this five stars but these boots don't do well on ice. I had bought them for the sole purpose of using them in Colorado (snow & ice). And while it does keep you feet warm in the snow there is no traction to walk on ice. So if you live in a cold rainy state, these are the boots for you! I think they are more true to size than what most people have reviewed them for. I was afraid it was going to be too small so I ordered a half size up but there was no need for it, even with thick wool socks. But I kept them, they were just too cute to return. March 5, 2014
workout The boots were really nice but it was hard to take off. I have large calves. Putting them on was not so bad but taking them off took a little more effort. I can't imagine what it would be like if I actually wore them out and then had to take them off. The boots were nice but not for me. I ordered half a size larger based on the reviews. If it had a zipper halfway down, I think I would have kept them. March 3, 2014
great boots Boots are awesome! I read the reviews and agree they do run a little small so order 1/2 size up and your good! Super stylish and look great with jeans/leggings! March 3, 2014
Womens Slimpack Riding Boot I love everything about this boot. It is so versatile and stylish. I feel like i can dress it up or down. Only one thing that is frustrating about it and that is that the heel is very hard to get into the boot. It seems that that area needs to be a little wider. Other than that, this is the first pair of Sorel boots I've had and I'm sure to buy another pair if they fit well. March 3, 2014
Happy now When I first received these boots I was disappointed and thought I would have to return them because of the fit. It was very difficult to get my foot in because I have a high arch and once in they seemed too wide, Worst, they were cutting my feet around the ankles! But, I loved the look and needed high boots in this winter weather so I wore them around the house for a day. I'm happy to say that with a little bit of use they softened up and I was also able to use some socks so the fit is now fine. March 2, 2014
Love I bought these for my sister for her birthday since she had been pining over them for awhile. Originally when she showed me the boots I thought they were ugly. A few weeks later we saw a girl out wearing the boots and I loved the look. I hunted them down and my sister loves them. Comfy, cute, goes with leggings or jeans and has an adjustable calf strap for more sturdy girls like myself. I even looked to buy my mom a pair (but they were sold out at that point) March 2, 2014
Give me bruises The boots are great, fit true to size in the feet but the leather buckles in a weird place on the right shoe and digs in to my ankle bone when i walk, which over the course of 2 snowy days left a nasty bruise on my ankle! I'm hoping this issue will resolve when i break them in, but for now they are a little painful! February 27, 2014
Wish I had discovered these sooner! My new favorite boots! Will definitely be purchasing more from Sorel! I typically wear a 6.5, however nearly every boot was out of stock in that size, I ordered the Slimpack Riding tall boot in a 6 as a last ditch effort to get my hands on these boots. They fit like a 6 would fit, but they are so comfortable I don't mind them being a tiny bit too small! February 27, 2014
IN LOVE These boots are amazing! I love them they are comfortable and fit great. I wear them with everything jeans, leggings, dresses. If it matches you can best believe I will definitely be wearing my boots. Worth the money for sure. Best purchase!! February 26, 2014
Great Boot--But Not For Me! This is a beautiful boot. I love everything about it--style, fit, practicality. It does fit true-to-size. I wear a 6 1/2 and ordered both the 6 and 6 1/2 (just in case). The larger size is a better fit. (I also have a very narrow foot.) Because I am petite--5'2" and 104 lbs., I felt the boot is too roomy in the ankle and calf. I wish it fit a little slimmer on the leg. Instead of being flattering on me, it made me look dumpy. I ended up returning both sizes. Slim them down a bit, Sorel, and I promise, "I will be back!" February 24, 2014
Functional and Stylish I love these boots. This is my second pair as I wanted another color. I have the grey and the cinnamon. Love them both!! My first pair was a little tight so I ordered the 2nd pair 1/2 size larger. My daughter loved them so much, I ordered her a pair too. We get compliments all the time. February 21, 2014
Stylish Boot These boots are really hard to get on at first, but once they get broken-in, they are awesome! Make sure to use SOREL's sizing guide to ensure a perfect fit. I've gotten many compliments on the boots - I got them in the cinnamon color and they go with everything! Have worn them in the snow/ice in the past few storms and they have kept my feet warm and safe. Would definitely recommend! February 20, 2014
Great boots! I LOVE these boots. I actually had a friend with them, and I became obsessed and bought them for my birthday. Because it was late in the season, I had to search and search, and one pair of 8s popped up on the site. They are very warm, very comfortable, and very cute for a snow-type boot. I have a pair of Hunter boots that are great for snow as well, as they have good tread, but these Sorel's are much warmer (and lined unlike the Hunter's), and actually a bit lighter. I read some reviews about the lining coming out and having a hard time getting the boots on and off, but I have not experienced that at all. I am almost always a 7 1/2 and ordered these in an 8 just to have a little extra room for thick socks. I probably could have gotten away with a 7 1/2, but I'm glad I ordered up a half size. February 20, 2014
I so WANT to love these and will give them one more chance.... These boots are as reviewed in terms of being warm but not too warm, incredibly stylish, and running about a 1/2 size small (I'm normally a size 5, and the 5.5 even allows me to include a shearling insole to make them warmer when needed). However, I'm disappointed so far for two reasons: (1) in spite of all the "waterproof" references in the product description, they in fact are NOT so. My socks and the shearling insoles are often wet after wearing the boots in slush and snow - it's not like I waded in puddles or anything. Customer service explained that I shouldn't expect the boots to be waterproof because of the way the seams are joined. I share this in case anyone else reaches the same conclusion I did from their description as a "waterproof, insulated PAC boot," or the construction from a "Waterproof full-grain leather upper" and an "Insulated waterproof vulcanized rubber shell" (among other features). This seems misleading and could easily be addressed by clarifying that the boot is actually water "resistant" if that is all Sorel intends for this style. (2) the adjustable suede strap on the back calf of one of the boots has already torn off, after only 6 weeks of periodic use. Since they're so new, I'm going to follow the warranty process and hopefully get a new pair...call me crazy, but these boots are just cool enough that I want to try them again before giving up. Fingers crossed for stronger straps and more water "resistance"! February 18, 2014
poor prduct I ordered on line I needed a warm water proof winter boot for every day use walking dogs taking care of horses going to town as they are stylish but they are not well insulated , nor are they waterproof, size is good and they are comfortable, the heel is all ready breaking down after a month and even with wool socks they are very cold very disappointed February 17, 2014
So stylish Everyone wants a pair, but they're hard to get on and off until you figure it out. February 17, 2014
Use the Sorel Fit Guide!! I absolutely LOVE these boots! I had heard a lot of reviews online and from friends that these boots fit really small. If you can't find these boots in a store to try them on, I HIGHLY recommend printing out the Fit Guide from the Sorel website! It's simple, print it out, tape the two pieces of paper together and stand on the template against the wall. I had a friend mark it for each foot. Even though I am usually a 9 in shoes, the sorel guide said I was an 8 1/2. I still went up a 1/2 size since I was on the border of the two and ordered the 9, They fit perfectly!! However, try them on with socks! When they first arrvied I tried them on barefoot and they were a little hard to get on. With socks and jeans, they fit like a glove. Super warm and stylish. Highly recommend!! February 13, 2014
Just What I Wanted These boots are exactly what I wanted. The fit is perfect and they are very comfortable. I wear a 7 1/2 shoe so I went with an 8 boot. I ordered the shale color which has both chocolate brown and black on the foot so it goes with all my clothes and handbags. I have been wearing them with a wool sock with a light to medium padding and this keeps my feet warm and dry. In the spring I will switch to a lighter sock. February 12, 2014
Rock Stars These boots are stylin'. A bit tight to get on due to no zipper on the side, but with a little work they slide on and look hot, no matter what the weather. I am a 6 1/2 in shoes and bought a size 7 in these and they fit great! February 11, 2014
Great Boots with a small downside I love love these boots. I bought 8's and at first they felt a little small but after a little time they ended up being perfect. They are so warm and comfortable. I have had them for two months. It has snowed so much here on the east coast so they have been perfect for me to wear to work. One let down is that the back strap used to tighten them broke off this morning. I am so disappointed because I love these boots. I am hoping that I can get them repaired through the warranty. Other then that, these are great boots! February 10, 2014
NOT warm I have the slim pack short boots, for two winters now. The boots I had before these were also sorels, I bought them in I think 2006 and spend years with them in Fairbanks ak. Loved the boots, traction, waterproof, warm, and people used to tell me how cute they were. I moved to mn for the last two years now and got a new pair of sorels when I came here, the slim pack short boots. It used to be that the sorel name equalled warmth, but not anymore! You have to be careful when buying sorels now, there are some that are warm and some that are just for being fashionable. Sorels are very popular here, so I thought I was doing good. Bt these boots are sooooo cold, my feet freeze in them, with thick wooly socks on. There is almost no insulation in these at all. The heels are also a problem. My last pair lasted so long and these new ones lasted one winter before the heels started breaking down. The tiny thin rubber over the heel is gone and the wood or cork or whatever underneath is wearing down. And if I step on them wrong I slide big time. I am very unhappy with these boots, and am looking now after only two winters for a new pair of boots, which will most likely not be sorels! I do moderate walking, one block to my sons school, parking lots, and have had to wear my old sorels I threw in the back of the closet (thank goodness) for waking the dog or on days when it was colder since this winter has been oddly cold for mn. I would not recommend these for cold weather climates! February 10, 2014
disappointed Really really cute, loved the fit (I ordered a ½ a size smaller than my 'normal' size and I have wide feet). However, the 2nd time I put them on the back strap with the buckle broke... Legit ripped in half. The leather looked really worn upon receiving the boots, but I thought it was just the style of it. I am really disappointed because they are really cute & wish the quality was better February 10, 2014
Too Small -- Had to Return. Upset they don't provide free returns. I wanted to love them, but I couldn't get my foot in the boot! It has a very narrow ankle portion to get your foot into the bottom portion of the boot. The materials looked nice, but I had to return them. An even bigger bummer is that they no longer had the next size up when I realized I needed the next size up and thus had to pay for shipping again to send back for a boot that I could't use. February 10, 2014
Super Stylish Winter Boot I love the design of this boot! It's durable, yet fashionable. I am typically a size 8, however, an 8.5 would have been a better fit. This boot is great for drudging through the Chicago winter, but it's not as insulated as I was anticipating. February 9, 2014
Cute and functional! I love these boots, because they are stylish enough to wear around the city day-to-day, but also keep my toes warm and dry on the coldest, wettest NYC days. I wear a 9-9.5 and went with the 9.5 so I would have room for my fluffiest socks. My one complaint about the boots is the rubber part ends at the ankle and it kind of digs in to my heel. Hasn't caused any blisters yet, I'm hoping it will stop once they're broken in. I was worried that the leather would stain in the rain, but it's very sturdy, treated leather! Great boots overall! February 9, 2014
cuteness These boots are fantastic. I no longer need to wear three pairs of socks. I also get a lot of compliments. People are impressed by the style and quality. If you're fashion forward and want to be warm these are the boots for you!! February 8, 2014
Best winter boots I've ever owned Right after purchasing, we were hit with another big snow. Unable to get my car out, I walked to my office in these boots. Perfectly waterproof and my feet were snug as a bug. Other boots I have owned did the same but were so heavy, you would be achy wearing them all day or walking a lot in them....not these. Comfort is amazing and traction is excellent. I get many compliments on them, and half of those are from men! Can't ask for a better marriage of function and fashion. I normally wear a size 7 and ordered a 7 despite reading other reviews saying to go up half a size. Had to pull a little first time putting them on but not nearly as much as other leather boots I have owned. After first wear, they go on easily. If I had gone up half a size they would have been too roomy in the foot for me. February 8, 2014
Dry toes happy girl Practical, comfortable, warm enough but not too toasty. Sassy looking February 8, 2014
Love these boots! These boots fit true to size for me. They are the warmest boots I have ever owned! They hold up well in New England winter conditions. I would recommend. They are worth the money. February 7, 2014
A great boot! I was looking online for a non cheesy winter boot since I live in New England. I wanted something I could wear all day and not feel silly. I found these online and they were sold out! The next day they were back so I purchased right away, shipping was very quick and I found they fit perfectly. I got a size 9 and that is my regular size, I wear them with semi thick socks nothing crazy since they are very warm. When I first put them on I had to work for it, but after 3 wears they go on and off nicely. I did find the right one was a little looser than the left in the ankle area, and I hope it doesn't stretch out and look bad later on. The buckles on the back could be improved as the tend to loosen on their own. I find them comfortable, and functional wore them to shovel and it was not slippery and they kept my feet and legs dry. I have received many compliments as well. February 7, 2014
great but not perfect The boots are really great quality, good construction. I live in freezing Chicago and I can walk through huge piles of snow with no leaks, and they are comfortable to walk a lot in, even through snow for several miles. Good traction, so I don't slip very easily on ice in the street. Great pull on style thats easy to get on and off, the pull tabs make it very simple, have no problems taking them off. overall i am super satisfied with the boots and they are putting up with this crazy winter snow and cold pretty well. The only critique I have of these boots is that they're not the warmest boots around. When it starts hitting about 10 F or below, I need to wear 2 pairs of socks in order to not freeze, which in Chicago is on a regular basis. Size however was true fit, but if you might want to wear 2 socks when trying it on if you live in super cold areas... February 7, 2014
Live up to my expectations! love these boots-agree though that one should size a half size up for comfort--have garnered lots of compliments each I wear them-feel stylish and hip in these comfortable and practical boots February 7, 2014
Simple & Classy Sorel always comes through on quality! I ordered these after seeing a girl at the gym wearing them. They are nice option when you want something simple and warm. I like that they are taller than some of the other Sorel boots and the foot area is a little slimmer (not as bulky) as some of the other styles. Great with leggings, tights or skinny jeans. February 7, 2014
This product was hard to get on... I had a difficult time getting these tall boots on due to their slip on nature. Once on, the back heel area fit was loose. Also, after all that work getting them on, I noticed the back strap was ripped...so I had to send them back. I decided to order a different style -Winter Fancy and LOVE them! February 6, 2014
If you live in a snowy city... These are great for winters in the city. Stylish enough to wear to a meeting, tough enough to walk through a foot or more of snow, less slippery than similar boots, and comfy enough to wear around the office all day. They're not stiff like many other winter boots. They're pretty warm, too, though I recommend warm socks as they're not super insulated and may not keep you toasty if you're out for a long time. That said, my feet are *very* sensitive to the cold and I'm fine with these and a pair of good socks down to at least 20 degrees (haven't tested colder). I'm usually an 8.5/9, though I will often size up for winter boots, so I sized up to a 9.5 here and they are perfect. 10 years of searching for the perfect winter boot for me has finally paid off. February 5, 2014
Great boots I found that these boots fit true to size. I wear a size 8 and ordered a size 8. This was the right choice. The boots are beautiful and comfortable. Don't hesitate to take the plunge! I love my boots! February 5, 2014
Not exactly waterproof... I've had these boots for about two weeks and I anticipate that they will be well worn and loved; probably going to be the most comfortable boots in my closet. Bought in 7.5 in the black. True to foot size, and I've worn a 7.5 in Sorel boots before. Love the look, but I do wish there was a zipper to make these easy to get in and out of. The pull up straps to help get them on are on the inside, and while that is aesthetically appealing, the loops are a bit tiny to be as practical as I'd like. Getting them on and off is a big pain compared to my last pair of boots that had quick zipper on and off. The fit of the calf is comfortably snug, but I imagine it might be tight on some people. I wore these sledding for about 2 hours outside, and they definitely did not prove to be waterproof. Yes, more waterproof than some boots, but half of my right foot was wet by the time I was done. I was hoping these would be my primary winter boots for the next three to five years, but if they're aren't really waterproof, then I'm a bit disappointed to have invested in attractive boots that I'm just going to have to replace with practical waterproof ugly boots. February 4, 2014
Perfect boot Love Love this boot. Very comfy, warm, and very COOL looking. Get compliments every time I wear them. I want to order another color February 4, 2014
Great Boot Great boot. The materials and construction are well done. These are definitely worth the price. The boots are stylish and versatile enough to wear year round... the snowy winter and rainy spring/summer/fall. The aren't as comfortable as I expected. They feel a bit like a hallowed out rain boot and I expected the liner to be thick and warm. My feet do get cold if I'm outside for a short period of time. I was considering purchasing the Hunter boot linings for the winter (not certain if Sorel offers a boot liner accessory for this style). A change in the comfort and warmth would make this boot perfect! Overall, I'm quite happy with my purchase and would certainly invest in another pair of Sorel's. February 4, 2014
Warmest boots ever owned I read reviews that said to size up however I did not and glad. They were a little snug at first and then molded to my calves. They are lined with a micro fleece which makes them very warm. I purchased them because they are functional. Fashionable was a plus. I can wear these with leggings and a tunic at the hockey rink and still look pulled together but also go on long walks with out ever having cold feet. They are also comfortable to walk in and I am extremely fussy about comfort. Love them. February 3, 2014
I think my shoes were at some point used... I got my boots in the mail and there were scuffs all over them. It looked like someone had worn them, returned them, and then the company just sent them to me. But the hassle of shipping them back is not worth it. Besides the scratches the boots are nice... February 1, 2014
Debated at first, but SO GLAD I DID!! I was going back and forth about what boot to purchase from Sorel, the winter fancy riding boot or this one...or a black pair of UGGs. I am SO THANKFUL I chose this boot. I absolutely love it!! Perfect fit for my size (wearing winter socks) and great outdoor boot. Keeps all rain out and warmth in. I live in SC and it doesn't get to terribly cold, but it did just snow and I wore my boots in the snow and my feet were perfectly warm and dry (they didn't even know there was snow on the ground.) So stylish! I'm very pleased and have no complaints. Great boot, great buy! January 29, 2014
