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 Joan of Arctic™ Boot is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 355.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubs Heels I have had these boots for a few years but have only worn them a few times. The back spine of the boot rubs your heel SO badly. There is not an amount of socks that you can wear to stop this from happening. It is worse on one side so possible a defect but regardless a $200 pair of boots that I cannot wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't Last Long Purchased these boots about 2 years ago and used a moderate amount. They are waterproof and keep feet warm; however boot rubber on both boots has cracked on the boot heels and is not repairable per customer service. Disappointing for what is supposed to be a long-lasting quality product. Would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy boots that are up to the job I wanted something stylish but functional and these boots fit the bill! Whether it’s running errands in the winter or headed to the ski slopes these do the job, keeping my feet warm and dry!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boots! I really liked these boots but they turned out to be a bit TOO green and heavy for what I was looking for. Certainly can recommend them to anyone looking for that type of snow boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too heavy I live in MN and have multiple snow boots. These are my least favorite. They are cute and all, but they are super heavy and clompy. Hard to get on and off. The laces come loose easily, even with double knots. They are good on the snowmobile and maybe outdoor ice fishing, but quick trips in and out of work or the grocery store- they are too cumbersome to deal with

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid boots I had ordered two of those boots in different colors, both size 12. The black ones fit while the other ones, which were “supposedly” size 12 as well, did not. They were more like a size 10, so I find the sizing not consistent. The boots that fit are terrific though. I have had them now for several winters and winters in upstate New York are rough. Kept my feet nice and toasty with just one pair of socks on. Hands down the best boots I ever had. The only three minus points I have are, the already mentioned inconsitant sizing, after a while I find the liners to get pretty smelly and I wish there was build in support/ cushion for the heels. The soles are super flat and my feet get really sore after a while of walking. But otherwise, worth every single penny.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it My parents got me these for Christmas. I needed a solid pair of snow boots for winters in Rochester. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to return them or not as they looked clunky and heavy. I should have just went with my initial reaction to return them. I wore them for the winter and they did not keep my feet warm or dry, even with thick socks. One of the liner snaps broke after 3 wears, even though I never touched it. They also got a white line on the suede where it creases when you move. It was a pretty mild winter and I must say they did not hold up well at all even with special care and further waterproofing. I will still keep them for the really bad days, but will be buying different boots as my main pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really heavy duty! I wore these primarily when I was a college student in Milwaukee, but they still get use whenever I travel to Minnesota to visit my family in winter. These absolutely held up to the freezing awfulness that Lake Michigan threw at me, and there was good ankle support on the ice to boot! (Bad pun) The only reason I knocked off a star is that it is an absolute process for taking them off. I thought they’d loosen up eventually, but mine never did. They still fit like new after two years! Which, that might sound good, but it takes me a solid 10 minutes to get them off. My one other minimal complaint is that one of the buttons on top that holds down the tabs ripped off after 5-7 wears (it was more of an aesthetic thing and was poorly attached, so that was a disappointment).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO Cute! This was my first Sorel purchase for a July trip to Patagonia. These boots are amazing! They're absolutely adorable and they keep your feet warm and dry while trudging thru snow/ice/mud. I would say they fit true to size with maybe a tiny bit of extra room for thick wool socks - but they still fit comfortably if you wear thin socks (I did both). They're about as heavy as you would expect, can be a little tricky to pull off the first few times, and they have pretty good traction so you won't slip and slide too much. Highly recommended. I got lots of compliments on them from strangers. I'm looking at other colors now :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for MinneSNOWta! Love love love these! Sorel is my absolute favorite brand for snow boots. I purchased these to replace my last pair of Sorels, which lasted 10 years. They are well worth the higher price tag and they’re adorable! True to size and VERY warm. These boots make me look forward to winter :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Boots I LOVE these boots. I just bought a pair for someone else. I've had mine for 10 years. The only downfall is the loop broke off that helps you get the boots on. Thankfully there is one on each side :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a pleasure I purchased new snow boots after 10 years of having my first pair of sorel snow boots. The first pair lasted ten years! Quality is amazing! I could still wear them, and have them as a spare, but they definitely needed refreshing. I can’t wait for another ten years with these ones!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite winter boots! By far my favorite winter boots yet! They are pretty heavy, but it doesn't bother me. They keep my feet warm and dry. Roomy enough to wear thick socks if needed. Have worn them through 3 winters and they are still in great condition. Bought a pair for my daughter and my mom, and they both love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! These are the first pair of winter boots to fit so well they have room for a thick pair of socks and because they tie in the front they fit my wide calves as well. Very stylish. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New sorels I love these boots My last pair lasted me over 20 years and these should outlast me They fit me like they were made just for my feet . And so easy to take care of and clean . Snow/ice/mud/haybarn it doesn’t matter I just hose off at the bottom of the steps and I am good to go. They are also so comfortable I use them for an “after” ski boot too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first Sorel experience has been great I recently bought my first pair of Sorels as I am going to college in upstate NY next year and warm shoes are a necessity. I have often been told of the great products Sorel makes; I was not disappointed. My boots fit perfectly with a little extra room to fit some this socks in them. They’re cute yet comfortable and I feel confident wearing them wherever I go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joan of Arctic lover Received my new boots today. Yhey fit perfectly, and are very comfortable. Not that my other Sorels wore out (even though they're 30 years old). They are mid-calf,and with the snow we got in the Northeast, I want to be prepared for NEXT winter. I am also getting a pair of low boots,so I have something to wear when it gets muddy in the spring. I always end up ruining a pair of sneakers. Hope you love your Sorels as much as I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoes! I will be moving to Michigan and was recommended to try these shoes and they are great! I range from size 6-6.5 typically, but the 6.5 fit better so that I can wear thick socks underneath. The shoes are absolutely adorable with great use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Fashionable!! I bought these awesome boots for a trip to Iceland. Not only were my feet warm and dry the entire time, but I was getting comments from total strangers as to how "cute" my boots were. Turns out my 30year old daughter has the same pair!! Like daughter, like mother!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product meet my expectations These are awesome, fit great. I would say get a 1/2 size larger so you can wear thicker socks if you usually do. They're extremely comfortable and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot (functional + cute) I have to say I haven't worn these out in the snow yet BUT they look and feel great. A bit clunky to walk in but that is to be expected of a boots this size and its construction. The faux fur doesn't look cheap like some others and they are snug but could definitely wear a thinker pair of socks in them too. Overall, looking forward to breaking them out next Minnesota winter (we know a thing or two about winter here).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five stars from Florida! I knew the minute I saw them, they were IT!! For the few times a year I travel to the snow, these are the most durable, warm, comfortable, non slip, FASHIONABLE boots I have ever owned! The quality exceeds expectation. Great ankle support and not one “slip” to date!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product makes a great winter boot I was in search of a new winter boot and came across various sorel boots. After trying on various ones, I decided on these. One thing to note is that they do run small so I had to order one size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE BOOTS! Everything about these boots is awesome - color options, style, quality, and even bang for your buck!! So far I've worn these in approx. 15-20 degree weather and trekked through about 8-12" of snow. I am extremely happy to report that even without socks my feet stayed nice and toasty! And dry! As far as the fit, I'd say slightly too large. I had first ordered them about a half size (8.5) larger than other boots due to some of the reviews I read and fearing they'd be snug. Turns out my normal size (8) fits much better and even better with thick socks - I would almost consider a half size (7.5) smaller since I don't usually wear thicker socks. My only suggestion to Sorel would be an alternate lace color option - I purchased the gray Joan of Arctics, but would absolutely consider purchasing different colored laces to change them up a bit. Otherwise, no complaints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Boots! I wore these boots during a snow trip to Big Bear Lake. The temperature was 19 degrees at night and 40’s during the day. My feet were toasty warm and they were so comfortable. These are well made and I love the color!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite winter boots These boots are so warm, comfortable, and cute. Plus incredibly practical as my kids are now at the age of wanting to play in the snow daily. I’m glad I can count on these boots to keep my feet warm and dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little bit small I love my new boots! The weird thing about them though is that they are hard to put on. Once they are on, they fit nicely. It's only my left boot that is hard to get on. I kept loosening the laces, then realized it was the actual boot that is smaller to put my foot in. The right boot doesn't have this issue. This is a problem without any socks on also.
