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 Best boots ever! After trying at least a dozen booties, my daughter told me to try Sorel. I didn't want to spend $200 but I found these half price and thought I would give them a shot! The day they arrived I put them on and never turned back. I love these boots. My husband and I went to Ireland and I wore them the whole time. They are waterproof, slip resistant and sooo comfortable. They look good with everything and for all styles. I love them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs a better lining Pros: -Cute style -Great arch support -Has zipper so you can get your foot in. Cons: -narrow in the foot, seemed to squeeze my toes and pulled my sock so tight my toes got bunched up -there is only a very light lining around the heel, which a) does not provide any level of warmth for the cold weather you might wear these slip-resistant boots for, and b) Rubbed and dug into my heel/ankle, even when wearing thick ski socks as a buffer (yes I tried a light sock, too) For reference, I've included a photo that has my poorly drawn arrows showing the seam stitching that looks like no big deal, but hurt like crazy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like these BUT.... Was looking for a fashionable rain boot to wear in Ireland on an upcoming vacation. Liked this style and read the reviews to buy a size up which I did from my measured size of 6 1/2 and bought a 7. Received the boot to find the toe box fit nicely in the 7 but it slipped on my heal in walking. I think the 6 1/2 would be too tight in the toe box. So these WENT back. Still searching for a stylish rain boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty & Practical I love these boots. I will admit they fit slightly small, but with time, they are beginning to break in. They are perfect for urban living, and my walking commutes. Not only are they practical for dreary wet weather days, but they look amazing too. I want to wear them everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I purchased Boot looks very nice, quality is good. Does not take long to break in, comfortable first time I wore them. I have very bad feet and the soles make the impact very light. I wear a 9 1/2, ordered a 10 - fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, dressy boots For 8 hrs of walking on concrete floor, these really make my night a lot more comfortable. I had been looking for a pair of shoes like these and so happy that I took the chance. Want to order another pair but it’s all gone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Ankle Boots This is my second pair of Sorel boots. I love these as well as the first pair I bought. I love having a pair of cute shoes I can wear in the rain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them so far! I bought these hoping for a stylish boot that would be an 'in-between' my snow boots and my flats that I wear when the weather is good! I wear a size 7 and bought a size 7, these fit just about right and I am anticipating they will break in a little bit as I wear them. They are a little tough to get on, but I think that will improve as I break them in as well. So far, Im really happy with them! And I've gotten lots of compliemnts. They do come up a little higher on my ankle, but so far it hasn't rubbed or anything

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, fun bootie These are adorable! I really wanted the black, which were sold out, and finally settled on the grey/black. These are very dark and look great as a black substitute. I wore them with short socks the first day and my left ankle got a blister (only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars). I've been wearing them with taller socks and black pants until they break in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Ankle Boot This is a great smaller version of the Tall Danica, I love how this boot fits, it was tight, but of course real leather will stretch after wear, and it did after a few days, definitely one of my fav sorel boots I have owned. Perfect boot to wear at a professional work environment, with leggings and a cute top or sweater.
Date published: 2018-03-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little conspicuous, but love! Super cute-- they are a little more conspicuously "rain boots" than I thought (the sole is pretty hefty, which is great for slipping, but not quite as professional as I had hoped); but definitely cuter than most rainboots and water resistant!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WI Winter Made Easy I bought these boots for casual wear/work shoes during the wet and winter months. I had a difficult time getting my foot into the boot but it may be because I have a large heal? Either way, they are easy to take off and I use nylon socks until they are worn in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! Ordered half size up and it was a perfect fit. Comfortable from the get go. Have been wearing timberland for years but they discontinued the boot I liked and thought would give Sorel a try as daughter has Joan of Arc boots she loves. I am glad I did. great tread for our mountain living. The zips seem good and strong, leather good quality so am hopeful for a good long life for these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes. I had a black Chelsea boot that I like, but I can't wear that often to work/play in Boston. What is the point of a workhorse staple that you have to be precious with? I needed a waterproof, slip on and go, no matter the rain or snow situation outside. These fit the bill to dress up or down. Also, they're just as comfy as can be!
Date published: 2018-02-21
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well Made Shoe, Not For Me These shoes are quality construction, and the bottom of the shoe feels sturdy. These would be great in winter weather. I really like Sorel's other booties and wanted to try this one. I personally didn't like the heel on this boot or the way it made my foot look, so it went back. I wear a 9.5 and have a slightly wide foot, and this fit true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish winter/rain boots I was originally looking for rainboots that were nice enough that I could wear them throughout the day for work. A lot of the rainboots that I was looking at looked stylish, but also had customer complaints that the soles were too slippery, they were not warm enough, and there wasn't enough padding in the foot. The prices were also relatively high enough that I figured if I was going to dish out money for nice rainboots, then I could splurge a bit more and get Sorels. These are what I bought instead of your typical rubber rainboots. I bought these because they are beautiful, well-made, warm enough to handle both rain and snow (although less so with snow, but I've been fine in under 30 degree weather, so I can wear thicker socks if needed), the tread is better than other rainboots I was looking at, and the padding is great and comfortable to walk in. They also look so much better than the snow boots that I was wearing to work, so I'm happy I was able to solve so many issues at once, with one very practical, beautiful pair of shoes. Also, I took other people's advice and bought half a size up. They are slightly big on me lengthwise, but big enough to accommodate big wool socks for when I do wear them as winter boots. I honestly have no idea how they would have fit if I had ordered them in my original size, but they aren't tight (I have wide feet), and I'm happy with them. I would recommend. Also, this is my first pair of Sorels. I literally bought a second pair immediately after (the Danica but with heels, and those I bought in my normal size 8). Those are also gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Danica I absolutely love this boot! I have a 15 walk from the subway to work, and the sole is perfect for city streets, snow and ice. The boot is stylish enough for work, too. I wear a 7 1/2 or 8, and the 8 fits perfectly. I usually wear with light wool socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute bootie! I love this boot, it’s super cute but still comfortable enough to wear all day. I normally never wear anything but my regular aize 8 but I did go up a half size with these. I’m glad i bought them before they all sold out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile and stylish I really like these boots - so much so that I am buying a second pair (I purchased the Tobacco color first). That's because I wore my first pair traveling, which was great except for the fact that I had to walk through heavy snow in them for more than an hour...and while they are now extra comfortable and broken in (the ankle is on the stiff side initially as mentioned by another reviewer - wear with thick socks), they look BROKEN IN. So they might be fine in some light snow, but obv. not a replacement for real snow boots, and you might stretch them out a lot if you're not careful. The only other caveat is that my first order came with a clear sharpie mark on one boot and a bald spot on the leather of the other :( I returned and reordered, but I'm crossing my fingers that doesn't happen again. Not ok, Sorel! But in general, these boots have a very comfortable sole that makes even my fussy feet feel fine after a day of walking, and the stiffness in the ankle is manageable and can be broken in, though I haven't yet done that at a normal rate. :) Also, they seem TTS relative to other styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compliments Guaranteed These boots well surpassed my expectations. They are the exact style I was looking for and not only are they comfortable, I get compliments on them everywhere I go. They have great tread and the waterproof feature is a nice bonus that helps me stay stylish without worrying about getting wet socks while out and about in the Adirondack tundra. They were a little snug at first but have formed to my feet nicely after a few wears. I’m considering purchasing the brown ones to add to my boot collection. These are a must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite bootie! I am a teacher and was looking for a bootie to wear with my dress pants during Chicago winters. This boot is everything! I am usually a 9 in dress shoes due to my wide feet, but they were sold out. The 9 1/2 was available and I figured I would go for it and return if necessary. I am glad I ordered the 9 1/2! It is a little loose with thinner socks, but not too big. When I wear my thicker socks, they fit perfect!I have already worn them in the snow and melting slush and they are super durable and well made. They also look so stylish. They look great with dresses and leggings. I have received many compliments and questions as to where I bought them. I am a faithful Sorel winter boot customer and they did not disappoint. Thanks Sorel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Bootie, Will buy again Great fit. Great quality. I have aging, sensitive feet and this booty is perfectly comfy. Note - the quarry color that I bought is actually much closer to black than the photo shows. I will very likely again buy this bootie in the tobacco color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Low Cut Boot Perfect low cut, hardly heeled boot. Can wear a day and night. Perfect for shorter pants vs the higher heeled styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice boot, runs 1/2 size small I got these boots for an upcoming trip to Alaska. Had been looking for a waterproof boot that was also nice looking. Normally I wear a size 6, but I had to return my first pair and order a size 6 1/2. The boots seem really well made, are comfortable and warm. I love that I can wear them for walking the dogs, running errands, or out to eat. They worked well on several icy mornings.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from runs small Runs about 1/2 size smaller than my other Sorel shoes (Lea wedge-2016, 2017, Slimboot Lace-2016). Mine came with obvious scuff marks on the sides and a bit on the sole. They seem like they would be good otherwise - I wanted some flatter boots since I wear my wedges all the time, but for the cost I'll be returning these under warranty since they came in scuffed up. (not sure why it says "incentivized review" - to my knowledge I'm not getting anything for reviewing)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep my tootsies warm and dry! I was looking for a stylish boot that would not fall apart or get raggy once wet. I have worn these in light snow and my feet stay warm and stylish! Everyone comments on them and says how they look like they are great quality - and they are! I always rave about them to those that ask! Can't wait to add more to my closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boot runs narrow! This boot was gorgeous and wonderfully made and perfect with dress pants for the cold days. However the width is narrow on this boot. If you have a wide foot at all, do not get this as your foot will not fit. But the shoe is beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No go Purchased for my Mom after she borrowed my Lolla ankle and fell in love. Unfortunately she had to return these as they are higher on the ankle and rubbed uncomfortably where the seams and decorative buttons are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday boot! I love these boots. They are just what I was looking for n a stylish everyday boot. Comfortable enough to wear all day shopping, while keeping my feet dry going in and out in the winter weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable bootie I own I wore these shoes all around Seattle straight out of the box for over 5 hours without so much as inkling of discomfort. I love how the sole is sturdy and rugged but the rubber has enough bend to make wearing this feel like a sneaker without a need for any breaking in. I’ve received so many compliments on it too! A great day-to-night shoe, and the inside zip gives it a “moto” feel that adds oomph to literally any outfit. The treated leather is soft and supple but true to its waterproofing as advertised. I don’t think I’ve ever owned a shoe I actually look forward to wearing all day! Sorel really nailed this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pefect winter boot for in and out of doors This boot was a nice surprise - looks professional AND it's waterproof. The heel height works for jeans and dress pants. Now I can go from the mountains to meeting and wear the same boots - brilliant, Sorel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort and Style I am a retired teacher and have developed foot issues because I used to stand ALL day...so finding the perfect shoe is always a challenge; however, these boots are one of my favorite shoes! They are super supportive and comfortable, as well as stylish. The thick rubber sole provides the traction I need living in a heavy ice and snow area. I'm so happy I purchased these! I want to get them in brown as well. I bought a half size larger than what I normally wear, after reading several reviews stating that the shoes run small. I'm a pleased customer, for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ankle boot I LOVE this ankle boot. I have to walk two miles to and from public transportation every day, and this boot really holds up against the elements. Keeps my feet warm, dry, and comfortable. And it provides really solid support without weighing my feet down. I hope Sorel makes this model forever! Note: It does take a couple of days to break these boots in. But once you do, you'll be super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I wear a 9 in dress shoes and 10 in sneakers, and ordered Danica in 10. The fit is loose, but not too big. Very comfortable foot bed, and I am able to wear them all day, easily. They look great with dresses and pants, just wish they came in a light color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Fit, Comfortable Walking. I have been wearing these for a couple of weeks, trying to break in before a trip. There was one seam that was a bit rough when I first wore them, the seam rubbed my ankle - since then I have been wearing socks that cover - and no more rubbing. They are comfortable, easy to walk in, have good grip on wet concrete. I tend to have a wide foot, and these fit well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, but hoping they stretch I've been looking for a good ankle boot for over a year now. These might be what I need for a Minnesota fall and winter to wear to work. I have wide feet and these are a little snug, so if you're looking to wear them with thick socks consider that. I'm hoping the leather will stretch, but I'm not sure it'll be enough to be really comfortable for me. I really wish Sorel would offer wide sizes!
