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.


Women’s Emelie™ Tall Premium Boot is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boot convert This boot quality is great. The only issue I had with the boot was the my back ankles got cut from the the lower interior frame of the boot until they got Brocken in to and same with putting on the boot took awhile to brake it in and not fight them on even when I got a full size bigger than I normally get

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Give them a chance When my boots arrived I almost returned them because the calves were so tight I could barely get the boot on. I have never had to purchase wide calf styles and think that I have fairly average size calves for my height. Because the boots were so gorgeous and well made I decide to give them a week and wear them in the house hoping that they would stretch out. They did! They boots are still a tight fit but extremely comfortable and easy to get on and off now that they have been broken in. I love these boots so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a narrow foot Love them! They’re great in the rain and because they’re leather they still look semi-dressy. I have a really narrow foot so I typically get boots a half size smaller. I read the other reviews and decided to get my actual size (10). They fit perfectly! You can also adjust the back band for even tighter fit, which I did. I’ve received several compliments from friends and strangers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your time and money! So I read reviews and still figured they’d fit concidering im barely 100 pounds with pretty skinny legs, calf’s, etc.... But I even ordered them in a half size bigger because of the reviews I’d read. So when I got them I really liked how they looked. Until I tried to put them on! And I couldn’t get my feet all the way in either. These boots give Sorel a bad name. If these were the first pair of sorel boots I’d ever bought I would have an EXTREMELY low opinion of Sorel and return them (which I did of course!) and never make another sorel purchase again. The company needs to take these off of the market. Period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too Small I wear a 8.5 shoe. Have multiple Sorel brand shoes in that size that fit well. Due to having a high arch I could not get my foot into the boot. Returning the size 8.5 and going to try a size 9.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great City Boot I bought these boots for my winter trip Berlin and they were awesome! I walked around in them all day, and I was surprised at how well my feet held up. They are pretty light weight, and while my feet were never submerged, I walked in light snow and rain and stayed completely dry. They looked great with ever outfit I wore. Totally recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but...Bunches at ankle, narrow I wanted to love these boots! They are cute, have the same great Sorel tread as my snow boots, & are waterproof to boot (pun not intended). I was so sad to find that they just did NOT fit my foot. I ordered a 9.5 (normally wear a 9-9.5). To start, they desperately need a zipper. As others have stated, it's pretty darn hard to get your foot in. Yes, there are straps to pull, but if you have any calves at all, it's a tight squeeze to have your fingers in the straps while your foot slides in. Once I got my foot in, I found that the back of the boot digs into my ankle - it seems like the leather base is angled in for a narrow foot/ankle. Definitely not me! Finally, once my foot got to the sole of the shoe? the boot bunches up around my ankle (above where it's too tight). At this point it basically looked like I was wearing oversized rain boots....that also hurt my foot and were hard to get on. Sadly, I will be returning these and continuing my search for boots that I can wear to work in winter. See photos of bunching and other problems. White arrow = where you can see my foot is literally stuck above the narrow part Black arrow, the narrow part that dug into my foot after I finally got it in!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Size up! I ordered my usual boot size and couldn't even get these on because my foot got stuck trying to get past the ankle part. Very cute, but I can't comment on comfort. I don't know if I will order a larger size or not because of that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riding boot love These boots were a little snug the first few wears, esp getting my heel into the boot, but they have loosened up a little and are perfect (I think the heel cup is tight and that’s where some have trouble getting the boot on). I typically wear an 8 in most other shoes, sometimes 8.5 in Sorel and got an 8. Wider feet should likely size up. I have a narrow foot but a wider toe box. I love the boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot for slim feet & calfs This is a really nice boot, but was really hard to pull on as there is no side zip and the boot is really slim. They fit really well once on since the shaft was so fitted, but it was way too difficult to pull on and off so I ended up returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy all weather boot Great boot! After reading the other reviews I was really hesitant to buy these, but I gave it a shot and I’m so happy I did! I don’t have any problems getting the boots on or off, and they are super comfortable to wear. So comfortable in fact that I chose to test them out and walked 1.5 miles to work last week in the rain, and my feet stayed dry and still felt great! I didn’t experience any of the typical issues that I often do with my other boots or booties (rubbing on the backs of my heels or tops of my toes). I should also mention that I have really thin legs and narrow feet which typically makes buying boots a challenge (there’s always too much room around my legs) so I think the narrowness of the shaft that many mention was a problem, actually made these boots perfect for me

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Winter Boot I was looking for a black winter boot to stand up to all the PacNW rain. Sorel always makes great waterproof boots! These boots fit true to size, I wear a 9, its high quality leather, great color that works for almost every occasion. I do a lot of walking and these boots are SO comfy. Best yet, I can walk through puddles and not get wet. Con: They are a little tight when they first arrive, I went to try on a half size up and my heel slipped out. So true to size is the way to go. However, as you wear them the leather relaxes/stretches. There are no zippers, so pulling them on over jeans is quite difficult as the jeans tend to come up as you pull them on, bunching them. Other than that, its a great purchase and I'm glad I bought them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these boots I normally wear a 9 but needed a 9.5. I love the look of these boots - they can dress up or down. The footbed is super comfortable - I've worn them a couple times during days I'm on my feet most of the day with zero discomfort. I've gotten tons of compliments on them. My only beef is that they can be difficult to get on and off. There are buckles at the back, but they're pretty much just ornamental, and the elastic strip in the back doesn't seem to stretch much. There are small loops on the inside of the shaft to pull them up with, but if you have thicker calves like me, there really isn't room for your fingers in the loops plus your leg. I've been attempting to stretch out the shafts because I really do love these boots and want to wear them forever. Also the leather Sorel tag at the heel will get messed up if you use your other foot to push the boot off, so I've been having my husband pull them off for me :).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love Sorel I absolutely love Sorel boots. I have purchased four different pairs this winter however, this particular pair I had to return. It was a beautiful boot but when I walked, the boot bent around my ankle and rubbed all around my ankle which would have been a very uncomfortable fit for me. The boot itself was beautiful and very well-made. I’m sure it would’ve been very waterproof and the foot bed was very comfortable which is why I was sad to return them. I think Sorel boots are by far one of the best and most comfortable boots out there. I highly recommend the company and I’m waiting for my new pair of Tivoli high lll to be delivered soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful Boots, but need a Zipper I wanted to love these boots and most importantly I wanted them to fit. I ended up having to return them because my foot just could not slide in. I tried in two different sizes. My sister had the same issue so we returned them. If they design these with a zipper they would be GREAT!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Today is a sad day I loved the look of these boots. Getting them on? Not so much. The leather of the Emelie boots are tougher than any of the other Sorel styles that I own and I own MANY. This is the first pair that truly disappointment me. As other reviewers stated they are difficult to get on, the leather at the ankle and heel do not have enough give to get your foot in. On the 2nd day of ownership, I was holding onto the back of the boot to get them on, when my hand slipped and caught on the leather strap on the back. Which then ripped. I sent them back to warranty thinking the could be fixed but unfortunately they couldn’t. Oh how I loved the way these boots looked on! I’m struggling with the decision to get another pair in a half size bigger...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very surprised I have owned over 5 pairs of Sorel boots, all size 6.5. These boots did not fit. The right boot was so tight that I had to give up wearing it a few times because it would not go on. Then, one morning as I was struggling to put on the boots, a buckle popped off. I ended up returning them. I'm very bummed about the size and quality of these pretty boots. Unfortunately, Sorel doesn't have any comparable black leather boot that I like this season.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not well designed As others have noted, there are a bunch of problems with these boots. They run small. I am very consistently a 6.5 and had to size up to a 7. When I tried wearing regular (not excessively thick) wool socks with my normal size they were so tight my feet fell asleep. There's no zipper and they're REALLY hard to get on and off. To be fair, the leather does stretch, so if you wear them around with bare legs, then tights, etc eventually you can fit regular jeans in there more easily. But it shouldn't be that hard. My biggest complaint though is the piece of leather at the heel. It's really stiff and prevents the boots from bending with my leg. If it went all the way up, fine, the boots would be stiff but whatever. But it ends at the top of my ankle and digs in when I move. It is PAINFUL, and no amount of sizing up will help that. The same piece of leather is an inch shorter on the ankle boots in this style and it's perfect. It's like the design was lifted from a pair of boots with wedges and no one bothered to revise anything for these flat boots. Overall I'm bummed out, because these really are beautiful boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extremely small I could not even get my foot down in to the actually boot. I have multiple pairs of sorel but these are extremely small. I do not have a large foot (size 8) and my legs/ankles are thin so I'm not really sure why these are so hard to fit my foot in to. I'm super upset that I have to pay shipping charges (3 times total) just to do an exchange when most retailers have free refunds:exchanges.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boot Love this boot. It is soft and comfortable. The look is beautiful. My only complaint is that with no zipper it is a little difficult to get on. I still recommend it for all out comfort. Wore them around New York for two days and never had any problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHERE IS THE ZIPPER? These boots are beautiful and exactly what I was looking for-- except for one major design flaw. WHERE IS THE ZIPPER? The elasticated back does nothing to help get them on and take them off. Sadly, these boots will be going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sadly had to return I really wanted to like this boot! The look is very cute and I liked the details. Unfortunately, there isn't a zipper so the boot is practically impossible to get off. The fist time I wore them and then went to take them off - it was so difficult I had visions of having to cut my foot out! Tall leather boots need some sort of opening to remove ones foot - zipper, laces, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Sensible Love these boots. They are stylish and can be dressed up or down, but are also made to wear in the elements, which is perfect for all the seasons. Fit was slightly tight at first, but they broke in nicely after a few wears.
