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™ Wedge Chelsea Boot (was the Lea Wedge) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 465.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable style These booties are so comfortable. I live in North Dakota and do not worry about slipping in the ice and snow because the bottoms are so great in the snow. They look great with a dress, jeans or leggings. Highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Fit These boots are absolutely adorable, but the fit is awful. I could barely get them on my feet in my normal size (9.5), so I tried the 10 and it was even smaller - I got it on one foot and couldn’t even get it on the other! I then went ahead and ordered them online from elsewhere to see if that helped - nope! Unfortunately, these are super cute, but have an awful fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE I have been wanting a pair of Sorel wedges for the longest time and have been hoping and waiting for Sorel to ship to Australia. Could not wait any longer so shipped it to my friend in the US who posted to me in Oz. Totally worth the wait. These are the most comfortable boots I have EVER owned. Easy to slip on and of. Perfect fit around the ankle and toes (I have a wide foot so was a bit worried). Love the treads, especially as I am super clumsy and there is good grip on these soles. Sorel please start selling these boots in Australia. I want to get more!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the Lea Wedge I purchased the Lea Wedge last year and they are the BEST SHOES EVER! I was looking forward to getting another pair this season and picked up this new version at another retailer. The sole is clearly made for the outside which I didn’t care for. The back section of the boot did not look like leather as the front did. I returned them. PLEASE bring back the Lea!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sad to see change of style in Lea Wedge(now called Wedge Chelsea Boot Do not like that the sole of the boot has changed! I purchased the Lea Wedge in black last year and absolutely love this boot. Was trying to purchase another pair in the camel but out of my size. Searched for camel just now and see that they have changed the name from the Lea Wedge to the Wedge Chelsea boot. They have changed the style and made the sole of the boot to be a thicker looking rubber which makes the boot look less dressy and more like a snow boot. I liked the old Lea Wedge better as it was more sleek and modern. Sorel go back to original style of boot please!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic boot I’ve been wanting this boot for a long time and finally purchased it on sale. All of the Sorel boots are great and this does not disappoint. It fits true to size. I normally wear 6 1/2 and this size was perfect. It is extremely comfortable and stylish and I will wear this constantly in months to come. I look forward to purchasing another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want to wear everyday If the weather would allow I would wear these boots everyday. They are very comfortable, I can wear them all day and my feet have never been sore. I get lots of compliments every time I wear them. I ordered the grey and love the color, easy to wear with many outfits. I usually have to size up a 1/2 size in Sorel boots but the 8 was perfect. I would repurchase these boots in multiple colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best Bought my first pair of these boots a few months ago and fell in love. Comfortable, versatile, and favorite part... SO easy to get on and off. No fussing with laces. I've worn them outdoors on a casual hike and had no issues. Always get compliments when I wear them. They are also extremely light weight, another added comfort feature. I jumped on the sale price and now have two pairs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfy boot ever! I had been waiting for a year to pull the trigger on these and finally decided to do so and I am so glad I did! I could wear them walking around the city all day and not have any sore feet. They’re cushiony and light and constructed of such smooth materials. I know I will have these for years - they’re a staple closet item every woman must own!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar product I just recently purchased the Lea wedge in dark grey with black. This product is simply amazing. Well made shoe, super comfortable, great fit. This is my 2nd pair of Sorel boots and definitely not the last. I’ll be a lifetime customer. I like quality product and this met my expectations, actually surpassed them. The soft leather, that’s already pretreated to be waterproof, their appearance and just how well made these boots are. This is a purchase you’ll not regret!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Booties! I am a stylist so I stand on my feet anywhere from 7-10 hours at a time and these have Allieviatee nearly all the strain on my feet that I was experiencing in other shoes! My only complaint is that Sorel doesn’t make any of their shoes in wide. That would make Sorel my absolute favorite shoe brand!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extra touch goes a long way I love the boots but unfortunately the gift note wasn't included. It was a gift to myself for a recent health scare , I wanted to remind myself to be grateful. I was definitely disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Boot - Runs Large This boot is gorgeous. I love the design and the quality is top notch. I love the tread and have a feeling that these would be great for wet, slippery days. depending on the shoe, I go between an 8 and 8.5. Based on previous reviews, I decided to size down to an 8; unfortunately this was also too large. I'll be returning them and may end up trying a 7.5 later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These shoes are amazing in every way! These are so extremely comfortable and stylish. I work at an elementary school so I am on my feet the whole day. I was a little skeptical about being able to wear these shoes all day long. They are extremely comfortable to walk in all day. I love them so much I had to buy another color. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring on Fall! I purchased these boots in May and have worn them around the house because it’s been hot outside. Absolutely love them, and I hate to say that I’m actually wishing for Fall to hurry up so I can wear them for real!! So comfortable and I can’t wait to see how they feel when it’s subzero!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love. There’s nothing to not like about this boot. I’m a size 9.5 with Sorel and I do feel they are true to size for the most part... When I first put them on they felt too big and I’m trying to figure out if it’s the length or the width that’s slightly bigger.. they don’t feel like they are going to fall off by any means but they are a little roomier. I actually don’t mind though because I can wear a thicker sock in fall time and not feel cramped. It also conveniently accommodates the bunion I have on my right foot. I’ll definitely be getting a few more pairs. They are light weight and wearable for hours in comfort and style. Living in northwestern Ontario, grip and soles are everything which is why I love Sorels so much, so practical yet super stylish. I specifically wanted the all brown pair which isn’t offered on the Canadian website so that was annoying but regardless they were worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Boots I love, love, LOVE these booties!!! So comfortable, which is just an extra plus. I normally wear an 8.5, and I thought these looked a little narrow for me, so I ordered the 9 and they’re great. If you have narrow feet, you might get away with your correct size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want in every color! I have been coveting these booties for awhile, and finally decided to get a pair. I absolutely love them! They are true to size, much lighter than expected, and I can walk quite a bit in them with no comfort issues at all. I can't wait until black comes back in stock - I will pick up a pair in that color too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SO cute but SO small I bought my standard size - 6.5, which I wear in almost all other Sorel boots - and they were SO tight I could barely get them on! I loved the look, but had to return :(
Date published: 2018-04-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it These are my first pair of Sorel shoes and I'm loving them! I bought these because I need shoes that I can wear for longer than a couple hours and not be dying. I don't even feel like I'm wearing heels. I haven't worn them all day yet, but for 5 hours and still felt good to go further. My feet feel supported and comfortable. I bought a 7.5 and first try on (no socks) they ALMOST felt loose, but not near enough to feel like I needed to veer from my normal sizing. I wear little socks with mine though and it's perfect. I feel comfortable choosing to take these on upcoming vacations that will involve LOTS of walking! Worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them!! I love these booties!! They are comfortable and look great!! I bought the elk and it’s the perfect tan color. Very versatile. I found that the sizing is similar to frye sizing. I normally wear an 8 but had to size down to 7.5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! I absolutely love these Sorel shoes and especially this style! I have two different pairs in different colors because they are so absolutely comfy! And they fit true to your size. I have been wearing my Lea wedges every day since I have bought them. They are such good quality shoe, pair them with a dress or a pair of jeans and they look amazing! I’m a mom of an 18 month old and on my feet all day and these shoes are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I feel absolutely fabulous wearing the wedges! Thank you Sorel for making these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite! I own a few styles of Sorel boots and these are definitely my favorite. I own 3 colors and hoping black comes back in stock so I can get those as well. These wedges are very comfortable and true to size. I wear them daily, even during my pregnancy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as I imagined LOVE! LOVE! LOVE these boots! I have been eyeing them up for a couple years. So comfortable right from the box. I am in between sizes 5.5 & 6. Some say they ran big. Tried a friend's 6 on way too big. Ordered a 5 earlier in the season, too tight in the heel. 5.5 in black was a difficult size to find in stock. Fit like a glove!! Will not disappoint! On my feet 9+ hours a day and can wear for the full day!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I got these kind of by mistake. I ordered them with other shoes. When I got them I thought wow these are cute then I thought why not try them and keep them not realizing how comfortable they are. I am a teacher and walk a lot they are so comfortable I have been using them everyday. My coworker told me they must be extra comfy you have been using those everyday. I tell them they feel better than sneakers. They have been taking down the name and many are ordering these now. I myself have been thinking of getting more colors.
