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 1 out of 5 by from disappointed in boot bought boot at Christmas time..husband slowly wore to break in but about 5th time wearing the front of boot separated from the sole making them leak. Also during the REAL cold weather (10 below and colder) they did not keep his feet warm at all. very disappointed in product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teen's first Sorels I ordered these boots for my teenage grandson for Christmas and HE LOVES THEM!! His boots were a hit. I thought he might wear them once in a while if out in the cold for an extended period of time, but he's wearing them every day now!! The rest of us here have had Sorels for years and he's finally part of the club. Based on previous comments I ordered a half size smaller than usual and they fit perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal snow boot I’ve been looking for a quality snow boot for a couple years. You definitely get what you pay for with these boots. I live in West Michigan where the winters can be brutal. I look for any excuse to go outside now cause these boots are awesome! My feet are always dry and never get cold. They’re a tad heavy, but I wouldn’t expect anything less with the quality these boots have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cold Feet I use these boots for winter hiking and snowshoeing in southwest Montana. I immediately bought wool felt footbeds to improve the fit and warmth of the boot. I have still found repeatedly that once the temperature falls below about 0F to 5F my feet do not stay warm. There is not enough material under the foot (that is why I bought the footbeds) and the liners are too thin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So Disappointed! I purchased this product for my son who works for our county's parks department. He needs a rugged, warm, waterproof boot. He typically wears a size 10 in shoes and boots and all the reviews we read on this said that it was "true to size". NO WAY! The boot is way too big - probably 2 sizes too big. I am guessing that this could have been labeled incorrectly. I plan to exchange this boot, but I am unsure of what size to order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmest Boots So Far I've been looking for an end-all be-all winter boot for over a year. After taking suggestions from friends on Facebook, I finally settled on the Caribou XT. With a significant snowfall tonight, I finally got to try them out. They are, by far, the warmest pair of boots I've ever owned. Between shoveling snow and loading my car for a photo shoot, I was outside for around an hour. I feel like it could have been six, and my feet would have been fine. They're comfy, too! They do run about a half size large, but this accommodates a thick boot sock nicely (though, with the insulation, you don't really need one).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and stable. I just moved to Chicago from Florida, it's my first real winter and my first experience living with snow - it might be slightly premature, but we just had our first snowfall of the season - a good 5-6 inches, which is a lot to me. Luckily I had invested in a pair of these boots back in July knowing that snow was going to something I'd have to deal with. My choices at the time were between this boot and the classic Caribou boot. I ended up going with this because I like the simplicity of the design more than the classic, but I have to say that would have been happy either way stylistically. These boots are VERY warm - I was in snow past my ankle and I didn't feel the slightest bit cold. I always felt comfortable walking and never lost any traction. They are a tad heavy, but I'd imagine that most snow boots are for a reason. The key is that my feet stayed nice and warm and I was able to traverse anything that I came across. They were a little too roomy when I got them, even when I got a pair of 11.5 instead of my normal 12, but I just put in a pair of $8 gel insoles and that really helped make them snug enough to be totally comfortable. I highly recommend these boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too big These are great boots but like the other reviewers, I was pretty disappointed in the size. They feel like they're at least a full size too big, if not two. I would recommend these but go at least a size down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing Like another review, I wear 10.5-11 and the 10 fits me perfect. I don't see the sense of trashing the boot when ask you need to do is go try some on and get your size. Beyond that, I haven't had the pleasure to use them yet, however if they are even close to the others I own, wonderful boots. If the liner loses its water resistance, in site sorel will fix or replace, and I, personally would use water proofer on the exterior anyway. Just my two cents...nice boot, light and warm. For star, only because of price...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disapointed A friend of mine recommended Sorel. After looking through the site, I hand picked these based on the look and reviews. I wear a size 9 and have always purchased size 9 wide. This boot feels like a 10. Way too big. I work for a transportation company in Boston and I'm always in and out. The past two weeks have been horrific in Boston. Always in the teens. My feet are always cold and damp. I am totally dissatisfied with the boot and would not recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it is supose to I am in love. The boot is fantastic at doing its job, keeping a foot warm and dry. The only problem I have is the liner wants to move around, but that is easily fixed. Great traction in the snow and on ice. Hands down the best snow boot I've ever owned!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Caribou XT This boot is replacing a Sorel Mark 80 boot that was over 30 years old. I am not disappointed. The boot is warm as toast. Went Ice fishing at -5. My feet were never cold. I would like a more snug fit around the ankle. Otherwise, it's a top notch product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot Great. Incredibly warm. Don't need to wear heavy wool socks to stay warm. Does run big. I wear a 10.5-11.0 in a running shoe and the size 10 in this fit perfect.
