Women’s Cate The Great™ Wedge Boot is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 175.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's cate the great I've been eyeing sorel women's boot for 2 years thinking how stylish and comfortable they look well Christmas 2017 I decided to try them....well I was NOT disappointed. Not only are the comfortable but they are indeed styled perfectly. They are unique..I can wear skirts or jeans with them and command attention when I walk into a room. The best foot investment I've made in the 2 years I've drooled over them. This is the first pair of many I will be purchasing. I absolutely love them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love With These Boots! If you are looking for a stylish, super comfortable, and durable boot for the winter, pick these boots! The wedge and rubber soul makes them super comfy, the lace up style makes them easy to dress up or down, and the leather and suede along with the craftsmanship are beautiful as well. You will not be sorry. Thank you Sorel!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, Resilient Pair of Boots I ordered these boots after having the shorter version of them for a couple years. They’re not as tall as I’d expected and I wish the shoe laces were leather or something other than regular brown shoe lace because I think it takes away from the beauty of the boot but other than that they’re great, comfortable, tough boots that give me a height boost. They’re more of a bohemian (Idk if that’s the exact right word) look than what I’m used to but I like them a lot and I’ve worn them a great deal already with compliments from a couple of people. If you’re looking for a more classic, tall riding boot this probably isn’t it — I’d check out the Fiona boots which are AMAZING in a classic, chic way if you’re going for a more preppy look — with that being said, these boots are definitely awesome and especially when paired with a flannel or something similar in fashion, gives a very cool and laid-back look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most comfortable and stylish boots I was looking at these boots online for a couple of years, and whenever I was ready to justify price and ready to buy, I couldn't find them in color/size I wanted/needed. Finally, about a month ago, I found them in this Redwood color in my size 7. I'm beyond happy with these boots! They are light, super comfortable, color is so beautiful! Im so glad i bought them... of course, a couple of days later, they are gone in my size. I walked in them for long hours, exploring Washington DC, and felt like walking in athletic shoes. They are light, so you don't have that sensation of "dragging" your feet (some platform boots are like that, very heavy), the bottom of boots have this ribbed sole that gives a "boost" to each step, like walking on clouds. I love the front lacing, that provides flexibility to adjust according to circumference of calf. I receive complements every single day I wear them. Redwood color is very rich and looks great with Mustard colored coat, Brown patched fur jacket, Red coat. I like to wear these boots with mini skirts and brown opaque stockings. They look great with brown leggings and tunic length sweaters. I highly recommend these boots. Worth every penny, I don't have any regret paying full price. I didn't wear them in snow yet, so can't speak on waterproof qualities. But they are warm enough in temps 30-35 F. I would love to get them in a different color, as they become available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Boot I am 5'2 and 130lbs and I bought size 7. Wherever I go, someone notices these boots. They are just my style, especially since I live in Fairbanks, AK, where it snows A LOT in December. I was initially surprised to see Sorel beginning to offer such stylish and quality boots. Although, these boots are beautiful they do bunch around the ankle, the laces do not give enough support for the boot to fit tightly enough between where the foot ends and the leg begins, the first few times I wore them, this bothered me, it still does, but the boots are comfy enough otherwise. Also, the first time I tried them on I noticed a draft between the laces and the "tongue" of the boot that made me a little chilly. I bought these boots on sale, so they were worth the money, but I would not pay $275.00, just because I feel they could be better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from busted - no help from Sorel Love the boots - So comfortable. However, I bought these less than two years ago, only wear them in the winter, and far from everyday. One of the eyelets (made out of shoestring) busted as I was pulling the laces. They can't be fixed. Sorel wouldn't do anything for me, not even a gift card towards another pair. So I spent several hundred dollars on a pair of boots that I've worn probably less than 20 times and now have to throw away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stylish boots I ordered these boots online without trying them on first, and they fit perfectly! The color is beautiful and I love the chunky tread. They are feminine and and functional and I can wear them all day without getting uncomfortable. I also love that the leather is waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Boots These boots are super comfortable, and I love everything about them. I’ve gotten several great compliments from people when I wear them. I’m 5’10” and wearing any boot with a heel makes me feel insanely tall but these boots are engineered in a way that it doesn’t feel like you are wearing a wedge and I don’t feel like I tower over people. Sorel is by far my favorite brand of boots, they are all unique and extremely comfortable to wear, especially for someone like myself that normally doesn’t wear heels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this brand!! I purchased my first pair of Sorel’s this summer and now I am hooked!! These boots made my 3rd pair and I couldn’t be more pleased. When most boots won’t fit my athletic sized calves, these do very well. These are the only wedge/heel type footwear I can go all day in and my feet don’t hurt when I take them off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So BUMMED!! This is such a beautiful boot, the height is amazing for pants, skirts, dresses. Iam just so bummed the color is strange! From the website the color looked like a good neutral brown but in reality it is more of a plum color. Iam so bummed I just couldn't get past the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 hours on wedge This is my second purchase from Sorel, I love both of them! I was hesitant at first because I’ve got really big calves (17.5 inches), but it fits! The part I love the most, it’s comfortable. I can walk and tour around them for 6 hours without getting any sort of pain. If I could suggest, I hope they start making wedge boots for wide calves people as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Love the color! They were super comfortable (as my other two pairs of Sorel's are, no surprise there) from the first wear. I like the more solid tone throughout as compared to some of the other two-tone colorways of previous Cate boots. Wasn't sure if I would love them as much as I did from the pictures, so I thought - well, if they're not absolutely perfect and worth the price, I'll return them. I kept them. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! These boots are amazingly comfortable. Love the color, a reddish brown. I can wear these while on my feet all day at work and have no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I love these boots! They are super cute! The leather color is a reddish brown. The different leather pieces also have slightly different textures which adds to the appeal for me. The only thing I was hesitant about is the string along either edge that forms the lace holes. I read other reviews that said theirs broke. I've only worn my boots twice as I just got them, but I've tried to be careful when I tighten the laces. Hopefully I won't have problems with them. The fact that the boot laces is nice because you can adjust the tightness of the shaft around your calf. I also love that these are waterproof. I like my boots to be functional. I don't like to have to baby my footwear. The wedge style is comfortable for me. I have narrow feet with high arches and these boots don't really have much in the way of arch support, but they have a decently comfortable foot bed. Overall, very happy to have these... I think this is my 4th pair of Sorel boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from AMAZING... for awhile.. These boots are absolutely AWESOME, until they aren't. I bought mine in the fall of 2016 and wore them a few times a week. They were comfortable and warm to be in all day, plus they were stylish enough that I could get away with wearing them at my job with a cute skirt and nights. The wedge is low enough to be super comfortable, but gives just enough lift to feel professional. I'm in the event industry, and I would have these on for 12+ hours with no problem. Unfortunately, just this week (Dec 2017), the loop that holds the laces in snapped. Upon further inspection, all of them are very worn down and close to snapping. Because I wear them all the time, this didn't surprise me; HOWEVER, there is no way to fix them :( I am also just outside of the (1) year warranty. Even with my wear and tear, I expect a little higher quality - or at least a way they could be fixed! Even if it is at my expense. I also took them to my trusted shoe repair shop, and they also said they could not be repair. Because these boots are so practical, I will still probably buy another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love The boots are so comfortable. I can wear them all day shoppping and my feet don’t hurt. They secretly make me appear a couple inches taller and more thin, I can’t complain, I LOVE that!! They also keep my feet at the right temperature not to hot and not to cold on a Chicago winter’s day! I am going to look into purchasing more styles!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and comfortable These shoes are incredibly comfortable and since they are lace-up, the calf-widths are adjustable which I really like. I have small feet but usually have to get a larger boot size because my calves are muscular, but these were great. The shoes are a tiny bit loose on me with normal socks, but fit perfectly with thick wool socks. I'd say these run true to size but just a tiny bit larger (just a little). The quality is gorgeous and they look great with my jeans or leggings. Literally, I can run in these and they give great support. The soles are perfect for winter, they just simply don't slip, and I can stand for hours. Honestly, more comfortable then even tennis shoes, but they make me taller - Yay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE I purchased these boots Black Friday weekend. A Christmas gift to myself, I couldn’t wait to get them. I own the Lea Wedge in grey and I had a feeling this were going to fit and feel as good as they do, they are my favorite boot, SO comfortable. And I was right, these are very similar. I wore these to the mall Christmas shopping for HOURS and my feet did not hurt at all. These boots are so adorable and so comfortable. I highly recommend. I have 4 pairs of Sorel boots and I love every pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Boot! I have been eyeing various pairs of wedge style Sorel boots for some time now, and the 25% off Black Friday deal compelled me to purchase this style, which I am so glad I did. These boots are my new go-to, they are SO comfortable, warm, well constructed, but most of all STYLISH! Which is all I can really ask for in my footwear! I love the taller mid-calf length, and would absolutely suggest these to anyone looking for boots that will hold up to rain, snow, sleet, and make you still feel fashionable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love sorels so much Okay these are honestly the cutest boots in the entire world. They also just FEEL so incredibly sturdy and are the most comfortable shoes I️ own. I️ even do food delivery for work and walk a lot all day and they are always comfortable! I️ do wish they were a little warmer. If I️ stand outside in 32 degree temps my feet are numb within an hour even with wool socks. But other then that they are perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm sexy boots These boots have been on my wishlist and to finally get them has made me so happy. They fit perfect! I have wide calves so it’s nice to be able to have the ties in the front to adjust to your calf size. I’ve also had back surgery and the only heals I’ve found to be comfortable and not kill my back is sorel wedges. These boots can be dressed up or dressed down. Not only are they comfy they are warm. Took me two times wearing them to break in and now they are worn almost every other day!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed! Not only are they practical for weather conditions they are so stylish yet comfortable at the same time! Perfect to dress up or down! Only being 5ft tall, I was worried they might be to tall but they are perfect and hit right below the knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boot ever! The first day I wore these boots, I laced them on at 10am and took them off at 11pm. I was outside all day at a college football game where the weather was 40 degrees and non-stop rain. I can't believe it but my feet were toasty warm and dry all day. I have a narrow foot. These boots are great because the laces allow you to customize the fit. Amazing!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointment I bought these boots in black, and am hugely disappointed. They didn't even last one season, the rubber eyelets where the laces go have all stretched out. The plastic on the laces have come off and I have had to burn them. The insoles were completely worn out before the season was over making the boots completely unbearable anymore. I had higher hopes from these boots than they delivered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style and Comfort Was hesitant to purchase these lace ups with no zipper but no worries, easy to put on and take off. Laces not difficult to adjust at all. I'm 5'2" on the "thicker" side. No problem with circumference. Top hits about 2" below my knee. Flattering height with leggings and a tunic or swing dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All Weather Boot This is a great all weather boot. I have walked miles in subzero temperatures, snow, rain etc. It keeps your feet warm. Great fall, winter, and spring boot. It fits true to size, supports your foot when walking multiple miles, and does not scuff easy. My one complaint is with the lace holders. I had to exchange my boots about 4 months after I got them because the loops that hold the laces snapped. Apparently it is a common flaw, and it didn't stop me from getting another pair with my store credit. Just be careful with the laces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots ever! Having size 12 feet, you cannot find many shoes and boots in your size. I am 6’ tall and these boots are amazing! I love the extra height. They are so comfy! My second day wearing them and I wore them for 10 hours with no pain. Best boots ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO REGRETS The boots arrived less than 12 hours ago. Initially, I had felt some buyers remorse after making the purchase last week. I put the boots on and there was no going back. I just couldn't send them back! They're extremely comfortable, stylish, and functional! I'm 5'3" and they give me just a little extra height and they aren't clunky. They don't make me think "these boots wearing me" because they look too big or something. My biggest concern is always longevity. I hope to be able to wear these boots for years to come :)
