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 4 out of 5 by from Sharp-looking, but marginal quality soles I bought both colors of this shoe. They manage to pull off looking both classy and casual equally well. The strings are leather, and the leather upper appears to be very high quality. However the front edge of the sole immediately came unglued on one of the two pairs. The sole is very thin, maybe less than 1/4" and I'm sure it will tear away if I don't have it re-glued. The thin inner footbed is not supportive at all, and is not removable, so I had to put a better quality footbed over the top of the original. It seems to be working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alright alright alright This review is for the Men's Derby shoe, right shoe only. The left shoe cannot currently be tested. Really happy with this shoe though. I was holding off on buying new shoes until my (lesser) foot healed from it's dramatic shark wrestling/sky diving from space/ultimate frisbee injury (only one of those is true), and I didn't want to be wearing one shoe around and then bust out the other shoe a month later creating an awkward situation where one shoe was worn and the other was shiny and brand new and in my confusion it caused me to write excessively long sentences. BUT, it's been worth it. My right foot has been hella comfy at work of late. Fit was large as everyone else mentioned so I ordered a size below. Boom. No heel rub or anything like that as mentioned elsewhere. No comments on how awesome they look either, though. Probably because they're distracted by my lesser foot. But my right foot really likes these shoes. Still waiting to see if the left one is good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from True to size for me This is my third pair of Sorel shoes, and I've definitely become of fan. Like the other two pairs, I ordered these in a size 13 and couldn't imagine going any smaller. These look good, fit great and are comfortable all day long at work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Order 1 size down These run big for me. I'd recommend ordering 1 size down from what you typically wear

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Traction This is a great shoe. it is very versatile, I can go causal or a little dressier. They have great traction for those slippery winter months. They are very comfortable, and only took a few days to fully break-in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Derby looked great My shoe size is 10 1/2 2E and the shoes were to narrow for me and I returned them. I did love the look of the shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from re: stylish I've only worn these once in public but I will wear them extensively in Italy in April/May this year, so I'll know more then. My foot is size 14 and they fit just right in a size 13. Thanks to all those reviewers who complained of a large fit. I wouldn't have ordered the Derby's if you hadn't. At this early state what I like most is their sleek design which is visually helpful with feet my size. They are comfortable but will need some wear to lessen the rub below the ankles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from satisfied customer I bought these shoes for my husband on the recommendation of a friend. I bought them a half size smaller than he usually wears and that fit perfectly. the style is terrific and the leather is very soft which makes the shoe very comfortable (so says my husband). I recommend these shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ORDER 1/2 SIZE DOWN My husband usually wears a 10.5. We first ordered a size 11 because of the way his foot measured on the scale we printed out. We returned that ordered a 10.5 and it was too roomy still. Ordered a size 10 and it fits perfectly. My husband has narrow feet and he usually can only find Vans that fit comfortably but he said these are the most comfortable shoes he has ever worn! So much so even though we went through the hassle of 3 different orders to get the right size I am ordering the other color so he has both! Also the color with each pair varied with darkness. We ordered the Elk. Each pair came with difference hues, which adds a nice touch since its leather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique Look-Great Comfort Shoe arrived looking great, if not a little different color wise than I expected. Color was not smooth or similar throughout pattern with "blotches" of darker colors. In the end thought it gave the shoe a unique perspective though think some may be disappointed if color is not true throughout. From a size perspective I ordered a 12 and for the most part it fits accurately since I believe I have one foot that's a little longer than the other, that shoe is a little tighter but has stretched some with wearing. Have to say shoes are incredibly well made and in spite of the limited tightness have been comfortable to wear under varied conditions. This is my first experience with a Sorel-branded product and I am extremely happy with the purchase-delivery process and the exceptional quality. Obviously I was also delighted paying half price for a shoe well worth the $140 asking price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoes but order a half size down I originally went to purchase these on the clymb, but I didn't get to it in time. Luckily I was still able to buy them directly from Sorel. I have no complaints what-so-ever, but I wish had read more of the reviews before I ordered. My true size is a 12.5, but they are hard to find so I ordered a size 13 as usual; and they were way too roomy. That being the case I ordered a pair of 12s, waited for them to arrive and tried them on side by side with the 13s. The 12s were a less tight than 13s were loose. I decided to keep the 12s and they were comfy within an hour of wear, and Sorel handled the return with ease. I was so impressed that I just bought some stacked mocs from them so I could have two different pairs of Sorels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love em' These are a steal for the price they're selling for. As with every other review on here, order 1/2 to a full size down. I typically wear a 10.5-11 and ordered a 10 and they fit perfectly. They're comfortable and broken in right out of the box and I've received multiple complements on them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe The shoes are a good fit, but had to go with a 1/2 size smaller because the run a little large. The leather seems to be in great quality but showed wear a little after wearing them once, but seems to just be the weather getting broken in. Still very please so far with the fit and feel of the shoes. Would definitely recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits Like a Sock These shoes look good. They are SUPER comfortable. They fit like a sock and were comfortable from day one. I bought two pair, brown and tan. My only complaints are that the two colors looked distinct fom each other in pictures but are actually almost the same. It's going to take some dark brown polish to get them to look different. The reason I didn't give a 5 was the color and then the heel. The heel was MUCH smaller than a normal shoe heel. While it might be more comfortable for a long day of walking, it looks a little less dressy. Again, a great shoe. It looks good and feels great. I'm excited to see how they perform on a long day of walking and in bad weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from business casual Hope this review finds you helpful. The fit is slightly large and wide, i.e., about 1/2 inch; but decide for yourself. The quality is bit poor, i.e., glueing between the sole and leather shows gap and spot-uneven. However, the leather quality is very good, at least for the initial look and feel. It should be note that the heal is about 1/2 inch tall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Shoe I ordered these online and they came fast. Nice shoe, fit well, very thin material though. I think I paid enough for them ($80.00) but am happy I bought them
Date published: 2013-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice comfortable shoe I got a half size larger shoe that I normally wear. Overall, I think they are true to the size, but rather narrow. Hence for my wider foot 11 feels just right (instead of my usual 10.5). I like the quality, looks and comfort of these shoes. The only thing I might change is using regular laces. Leather ones that came with shoes are too thick for office wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such an excellent pair of shoes. Hope Sorel never discontinues them! These shoes are excellent. I have received so many compliments on these shoes in the short time that I have had them. More importantly, they're very comfortable, and had a very short break-in period. I was so impressed with the pair of shoes I ordered that I ordered the other color within a week. I really do hope Sorel continues this line as I'm really impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of shoes I was looking for a pair of shoes that I could wear with jeans and yet still feel dressy. This fit the bill perfectly. If you're between half sizes go with the larger size. I sometimes wear 9.5 and sometime 10 - I ordered the 10 and it fits perfectly. I liked the style and sale price so much I went back online and ordered a pair in the dark brown color, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great every day shoe These shoes are outstanding- comfortable, light weight, and great grip on the sole. These are my new everyday shoe and I love them. One thing to note, as other reviewers have said- order a half size smaller than your normal size, as these fit long. I have very wide feet and getting the 1/2 smaller fit perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great looking shoes, but not comfortable These shoes look great and I was very happy with them out of the box. The shoes felt a bit stiff out of the box, but that is often the case, so I was not worried. I have now worn these 5 times and I am sad to say that the fit has not improved. My feet hurt each time I wear them. The quality is not my concern, simply the fit of the shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At long last mine I had waited for 2 years since I saw these recommended in Outside magazine as a shoe that fit like a running shoe but would be acceptable in the office. The $140 price made me blanch a bit so I waited and then forgot about them for a while until I recently rediscovered them at $70 and bought them immediately. They have been everything I thought they would be and I could not be happier ....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Derby - Elk - Great Shoe Great Shoe. I have had them for about 2 weeks. Very comfortable to wear and I use a standing desk for most of the day. The shoe runs a bit large. I wear an 11 and ordered a 10.5.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sleek Casual Friday Look! Most of the reviews are correct, it is a half-size bigger. The shoe tongue base corners are rough and rub against my feet, not good. Wear thick socks to fix that. Not recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoes Awesome fit and great quality. Only thing they got creases real fast from wearing but since these are my first true leather shoes I had in 10 years so it may be part of the package.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shoes Great online experience, and great deal for $80 with shipping. Wife liked the style, and the quality seems to be above average. The grips on the bottom will be great for Wisconsin winters, and I liked the extra cushioning this rubber soles provided. Overall a great buy. I typically wear a 10.5 to 11, and the 10.5 fit, but with a 1/4 extra room. Wish they had these in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's Derby Fits a half size large, as many other reviews have pointed out, i agree. Additionally, i would not recommend using a leather waterproofing spray with these shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable Very comfortable, light and non slip surface. Got a lot of compliments for its Retro style. I wear them mainly with khakis. They run a little big so get it 1/2 size smaller and it should fit great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the shoe, not the glue! Bought these through Amazon, mainly for their sole. I gave them a fair quality rating, again, because of the sole. I wanted a nice work shoe that didn't have a slick sole (MT winters) and was excited when i found these. Within 1 month the sole on both shoes had started separating at the toe. Sorel was willing to evaluate for warranty issue, but said it was a 4-6 week turn around. Thank goodness for Archer's Grizzly Boot Co in Missoula. A few bucks and 24 hours later they were better than brand new. I realize I may have gotten a bum pair, but because of the sole, I wouldn't recommend them unless you're OK with the potential of sending them back or have a quality shoe repair shop close by. Everything else about this shoe is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shoe, looks great!! The Derby looks awesome! The soul in very comfortable the the leather has a good flex. The edges of the leather around the ankle and the edge of the tongue are a little stiff and gave me a blister but that's no different than any leather dress shoe I've tried on before. It'll soften up after some use. I ordered a 10, which is the size I normally wear, and the shoe was way to big. Ordered a 9.5 and it fits a lot better, might have been able to pull off a 9 for a little tighter fit but the shoe fits way better a half a size smaller. As soon as I wore them out I was complimented on them, they look great and aside from the 'new shoe' stiffness, they feel great. I will be buying them in darker brown as well as soon as I can. Thanks Sorel for my new favorite shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Comfortable I needed to a pair of comfortable shoes to wear at work where a tie and jacket dress is the norm. These fit the bill. The have a nice sleek look, and I like the throwback style. I am eager to get a couple more pairs of Sorels to wear for work.
Date published: 2012-10-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unfinished edges While the comfort and support from the sole of the shoe is exemplary, this is offset by the raw sharpness of the edges around the ankle, such that the top of the heel quickly scrapes away to create a painful abrasion on the tendons of the heel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Derby LTR - great lightweight casual shoe Great style, quality (on second time around) and comfortably lightweight. Ideal for travel, as well as casual work and play. I had to send back original pair due to poor quality. Company was extraordinarily accommodating in their return policy and sent out another pair immediately and without question. Unfortunately, quality control should have been in place prior to orig. shipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic looking shoe with modern twist. Perfect for casual and dress. Leather is beautiful. The toe box is elongated giving the shoe a nice modern look. The shoe seems to be very well crafted, however, I'm sending my shoes back to be fixed/replaced as the rubber sole has de-laminated from the upper sole at the toe. This happened after only 3 days of wear. Hopefully, this is just a faulty pair, but Sorel is standing behind their products as usual and taking care of it for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great; fit can be a challenge Looks very fashionable and and fits my business casual workplace attire. The leather is supple. The heel on the shoe is minimal. The rubber soles grip the floor well; I hope they don't wear out too quickly. I usually wear a Size 8 (US) and hence purchased one on-line. The shoe that arrived was about 1/2" too long. I exchanged it for a 7-1/2 and will wait for its arrival. A couple of red flags should have stopped me from purchasing the item, but I was eager: (1) don't buy a shoes without trying them on a pair, even if it's not exactly the right size, and (2) the website lists this shoe as a US8/UK7.5 whereas the shoes I own are US8/UK7. I'm not sure why there was a discrepancy. Note: The stores I visited to exchange the shoes do not carry shoes less than a Size 8 (US). Smaller shoe sizes can only be purchased online. I'm looking forward to getting the right-sized shoes so I can enjoy them.
