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 4.5 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heaven for a Minnesota winter I researched the heck out of these boots and others before I bought. I wanted them to be attractive but I NEEDED them to be warm. Sorel delivered on all counts. I got them right as a nasty cold spell started (nighttime air temps -15; daytime -5) and my feet have been warm and toasty. They also grip icy sidewalks well, and they're as cute as a button. I'm typically a 7-7 1/2; ordered the 7 1/2 and the fit is perfect, both with one pair of sock and two. Great, great buy. Still longing for warmer weather but these make this Artic blast bearable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need 1/2 sizes Quick delivery, good warmth for the brutal Michigan winters! Wish they had 1/2 sizes as I ordered a size up and they run large. Difficult to walk in until you get use to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing boots! And cute :) These boots are super warm and comfortable. I live in Chicago and they haven’t failed me yet! I get compliments on them every time I wear them. My only issue is that I have to loosen most of the laces to get them on and off - takes a few extra seconds, but that’s it! I am usually a 7.5 and the 7 fit well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm dry feet! At last! A stylish winter boot the keeps my feet dry and toasty even after hours of shoveling snow in a storm. So happy I found these!!! I found that they run true to size. Even with thick socks on. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joan of Arc Wonder Boot Amazing boot! I wore my boots the first time in a hasty dash to get kids to ski slopes. At 2 degrees on a very high mountain, I wore the boots with no socks and didn’t feel any cold. They kept me warm and looking pretty stylish. I was on the bunny hill, teaching my youngest how to ski and my toes never complained! Plus I feel pretty and girly yet ready to take on the cold of the East Coast. Thank you Sorel!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gorgeous-but *small* My dad got me these b/c they were marked down so much. Size 7 was the biggest they had and I figured it would be fine. He bought me my first pair of Sorel's when I was in 7th grade-in 1987! (Snow Lion, if they were still called that back then) I finally had to get rid of them. They were 7's. I have another pair of snow boots (not Sorel's) that are also 7's. Plenty of room in both pairs. Even room for my arch inserts. These, however..they are *so* tight. I have a high instep, so I get that makes it difficult but wow. My parents are pretty sure that they'll stretch out-I'm hoping they do b/c I *love* them otherwise. They're actually the boots I've been sighing over for three or so years now, but never could afford them. If they weren't so constrictive I'd give them 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joan of Arctic - OMG I bought these boots for my wife for Christmas hoping I would impress her. A week later she can't stop talking about them! The Joan of Arctic turned out to be the warmest boot she had ever experienced living here in the Ludington Michigan winter. The height is perfect for everything we have experienced in this 6 plus inch per event snowfall winter we've had so far and she has repeatedly said that her new Joan of Arctic boots make her feel more sophisticated than warm. That means more than a lot, given the fact the single digit temps haven't touched her toes yet! In the end, this purchase will not only go down as one of the most impressionable purchases I've ever made, but probably the most real!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely in LOVE with Joan of Arctics I splurged on this boot for Christmas and am so happy I did. They are perfect for this unusually cold winter here in the MidAtlantic and as hard working and warm as they are, they are unbelievably cute as well. I already HAVE recommended these to sisters and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toasty Warm The boots are amazing! This winter has been a cold one, and my feet are so thankful for these boots!! I bought a size up from normal so I could wear thick socks. I love that the laces help customize the size of the boot, too. I’ve gotten so many compliments on these boots. Definitely perfect for winter in New England if you want dry, warm feet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TRUE TO SIZE Boots are beautiful, warm, waterproof, comfy, and everything they’re supposed to be, and... TRUE TO SIZE!!! Please buy your size unless you have Fred Flintstone feet. I’m a 6, bought a 6.5 and wearing 3 thick wool socks and still have like a whole number bigger. They come with enough space to fit with thick snow socks on your regular size. I’ll have to send them back and exchange for my regular 6 :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Must alter gait I found these boots to run a tad small. I can not wear a thick sock in my usual size 8. More importantly, I don't find the boot particularly comfortable. It does not allow for appropriate flexion at the ankle. Due to this, I seem to have to adjust my gait when wearing the the JOA. it is an awkward fitting boot. It also requires some time and patience to remove the boot. I don't recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cold toes I was so excited to have a great pair of boots for this winter but I am extremely disappointed in the warmth. My toes are frozen within minutes of being outside, even just when I’m in the car. If I had known these boots would not keep my toes warm I would not have spent the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Foot height way too small I was so excited to get these boots until I tried them on. My feet got so claustrophobic in these boots. They are well-made and look fantastic, but my foot was so uncomfortable that I couldn't stand to wear them. I sized up and had plenty of room for my foot length, but the foot height (from bottom to top of my foot) was way too small. I had thin socks on and there's no way I could've worn thicker socks with them. I love how they look and wanted to love them, but they are too small and not in the typical way shoes are too small. I've had Sorels before and love them, but these are going back. And I will not be ordering another pair until I can try them on first. I've wasted $12 on shipping them back and forth. Even though I was able to purchase them for more than half off, it is costing me more in the long run. Lesson learned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too small I read these run true to size but they run small for me! My feet are a 5.5 or 6 and I ordered a 6 and my toes touch the fronts! I'm so dissapointed .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect winter boot These are literally perfect. I’ve never found winter boots that keep my feet so warm but are so cute at the same time. I ordered them quickly on super sale thinking my size would sell out (it did) & hadn’t read the reviews. I was nervous when I saw a lot of people seemed to think they run small but I ordered my usual size 9 and they fit perfect! Might be a bit snug with thick socks but I probably wouldn’t even need them they are so warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Wife Loves These! Purchased these for my wife as a Christmas gift. She loves them! She wanted them to take the puppy to the dog park in these brutal Midwest winters. Did order a 1/2 size larger which she said was perfect. The style sold my wife, the quality sold me on the investment in the boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of boots! I live in Hawaii and needed to purchase a pair of boots for a Colorado trip. I researched online for the best snow boots and stumbled upon the Sorel brand. You cannot go wrong with these boots! I'm usually a 6 or 6.5 and bought a size 7 after reading a lot of reviews. When I received them, they looked huge! but when trying them on, they fit like a glove! I love Sorel and so I bought a second pair of rain boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute boots for any age! Love these new boots. I wear them in the snow with leggings or slim pants tucked in. I had to order up a whole size from my shoe size. I wear a 7, so I got an 8! They are very warm and attractive. I have two other pairs of Sorels that I bought years ago and I prefer the soles on them because they have more traction and are flatter, but the bottoms of these seem fine in snow and slush. They are waterproof and look great after walking in salty slush!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd pair for me This is my 2nd pair of these boots in over a decade. Warmest boots for standing mountainside waiting for my kids to ski race. This new fur looks and feels so much better than previous pair. After a lot of wear they break in perfect. The sole separated so I had to replace mine after years. Stylish comfortable and extremely warm in New England.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not comfortable at all I bought these boots for a trip to Iceland. They did their job at keeping my feet warm; however, that's where my positive experience ends. I could barely walk in them after the first few minutes as they had rubbed a sore spot on the back of both of my ankles. It was so bad that I had to take the boots off in the car between rest stops to let my ankles rest. They were incredibly stiff and felt like I was walking in ski boots (which don't let you bend your ankle). I really wish I could exchange these for a different pair but since I've worn them, I fear they aren't returnable. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, life-time boots I've been wearing Sorel boots since I was a little girl and nothing can beat the quality and comfort of these boots. The Joan of Arctic boots definitely run on the smaller side; I'm typically and 8 or 8.5 and I bought these in a 9 and they're perfect. They're stylish, warm and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can never go back to anything else! Last year I purchased a pair of these for my daughter. Her feet outgrew them over the summer, and we scrambled to find another pair of boots before the snow flies. Problem was, no other boots could measure up to the style, comfort, and performance these boots offer! The winters here are harsh and snowy and for a young lady, clunky boy boots just wouldn't get worn. They are durable enough to last many winters if her feet stop growing! Well done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job while looking stylish I chose the color Elk, Dark Mountain, to stand out from my black leggings. These boots and so cute, very warm and comfortable! They add some style while you are all bundled up. I ordered a 1/2 size bigger than usual to leave room for bigger socks. Highly recommend!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but could be better I live in North Dakota, where the winters get pretty long, and I bought these for winter activities like shoveling or just bumming around to keep my feet warm. I usually wear a size 6.5 but got a 7, due to other reviews I had read, but even that was too small. I could've gone up to a size 7.5 at least! I don't know if its because they were a bit too snug, but I didn't feel as though they kept my feet warm. I often come inside with cold toes. They also feel clunky and heavy to me. So it'd be nice if, for that amount of weight being carried around on my feet, they were kept warm at least. I'm going to try the 1964 cvs boot and see if thats any better. I mean, they are super cute boots and look great, they just aren't that practical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots, can't wait to wear them! I have looked at these boots for over a year now. My sister got them last year and just raved about them. I needed a pair of boots that would keep my feet dry and warm as my husband is a high school football coach and one of my sons plays football (I watch a lot of football this time of the year). Boots are here, I love the look and feel, but haven't been able to wear them yet because summer seems to be here to stay (not complaining). Looking forward to wearing them all winter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joan of Arctic I was debating for a while on whether or not to order these boots but im glad I did! I read previous reviews about the boot fitting slighty small so I ordered a half size up. I usually wear a 7.5 but the 8 was perfect with a pair of warm socks. They are very comfortable, keep my feet warm and are super cute! I will definitely be order all my future boots from sorel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love This is my second pair of Joan of Artic boots. I also have them in black which I've had for years and they still look brand new! I saw these on sale and couldn't pass them up, I love the elk/dark mountain color. This boot keeps my feet so warm during our Michigan winters and they are so cute on. I would say these boots run true to size. I am a size 8.5 or 9 and my first pair I tried on in the store and though the 8.5 fit fine, I liked the extra room on the 9 for thicker winter socks. These boots do not disappoint in quality, fit, warmth and style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant wait for winter! I ordered these to ensure that I have good boots for the winter. These will not only work great for the cold but also look great! I was worried about what size to order so I went up a half size. (Normally a 7.5 & I ordered an 8) this seems to give me a little wiggle room for larger socks if wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boot! I have enjoyed Sorel products for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. These Women's Joan of Artic boots were purchased for a friend. Outstanding quality, built to last, comfortable and great looking. Can't wait for my friend to go through a Wisconsin winter with these boots. She will never have cold feet again. Thanks Sorel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I've been in need of cute winter boots that are also good in the snow and I came across these! I am so happy with my purchase. I usually run between a 7 and a 8 and I order the 7.5 but needed to bump it up to an 8. Over all I am very happy with the product and can't wait to use in the winter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot and great look! I recently purchased this boot because it was on sale and I have been wanting a pair for quite a while! I'm so excited I was able to snag a pair even though it will be a while before I can wear them. I did try them on and they fit perfectly! They feel super comfortable and are extremely thick so I feel that these will definitely keep my feet warm and dry once the snow comes this winter. Also I love the look of them! They are very stylish and would look super cute with leggings on a cold snowy day!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good boots, but run small These boots are so cute and warm. I haven't worn them but I can't wait for it to snow. I am an Arizona native and just moved to heavy snow country so these are going to be so important. THEY RUN SMALL!!! I am normally a 7 and everyone in a while a 7.5 I ordered a 7.5 to make sure they would fit and they were too small! thankfully they were easy to return at a Columbia outlet! once I ordered a size 8 they were perfect. just order big!

Looking forward to wearing them this winter!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inaccurate Sizing of Excellent product I am impressed with the product, but discouraged with varied and inaccurate sizing. I wanted to invest in good winter boots for my daughter's first year of college. We tried on the Sorel Joan of Artic BLACK boots at local shoe store in Minnesota, and size 7 fit fine (my daughter normally wears a 7.5 Asics tennis shoe). We found the clearance sale of Joan of Arctic Elk/Dark Mountain boots online and opted to order her normal size 7.5. The boots arrived very quickly, but were WAY too small. As the boots seem to be of excellent quality, we are reordering a full size larger.
Date published: 2017-08-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had to return This boot is really cute and seems like good quality. I really wanted to keep them. I ordered my normal size of 7.5, which was a mistake because they were too tight. However, the reason I returned them instead of exchanging them for a new size was because the leg of the boots angles forward and pushed against the back of legs. I couldn't really straighten my legs in the boots, they made me feel like I had to stand in a slight squat position and walk with a funny gait.
