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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE Most Comfortable Heeled Boots I love these boots. I wish that I could wear them with everything, but fashionably, they don't go with everything. I can wear them all day without the worry that my feet will hurt. I have narrow feet, so I have to wear them with thick socks. I may also try to find an insole that could help out with that going forward. I teeter totter between 8.5 and 9, but 8,5 worked better for this shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly comfortable and cute! I am so happy I bought these boots! I only wish I had bought them sooner! They are super comfortable, and very stylish. I love everything about them. I wear them all day long with no foot pain( which I can’t say about many shoes/boots). So happy with them, I’m looking to buy them in another color! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy them, seriously I was hesitant to buy these due to the price, and the heel. As an athlete the only shoes or boots I own have absolutely no height added to them. Nevertheless, after a few steps you can't even tell that it has a 3 inch heel to it. After wearing them out a few times, I started to wear them to work where I stand between 4 to 8 hours at a time. Be reminded these are the highest shoes I own by inches! They are comfortable and receive so many complements. I just bought my second pair (the tobacco color). Also, they don't get utterly destroyed in snow or rain or get marked up like a lot of other black boots do. As a side note, I can fit my custom made orthotics in them comfortably. If you use orthotics I would suggest the size of the shoe in which you currently wear them in, or a half size bigger than your normal shoe size. Happy shoe shopping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have!! These boots are cute, comfortable and functionable. What’s not to love?! I bought them because 2 other women in my office have them and highly recommended them. I love that they are water proof and not only do I wear them in the snow but also the rain. They run a little bit big but I think that is a good thing. Sine they are not lined you can still wear a thick warm sock with them. The price is a little steep but again they are multifunctional and worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Boots I love these boots. They are super comfortable, despite standing all day. The wedges are really stable and great for walking in all sorts of weather. I get tons of compliments on them whenever I wear them. I also love that they look super tough, but still feminine. I've worn them for a week straight with no issues, but I can't speak to durability yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THEM! I have been looking for shoes that are comfortable enough for everyday wear, are study, but something I find fashionable. I recently got into shoes but am not the type to walk in heels on a casual day off, but still wanted something that gave me the same feel. These do it! Now I can dress casual and still feel great. I went half a size up (8) so I can wear double wool socks in winter, but for the normal person I would think your average size is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter boot.. with style! I love my new wedges! I live in North Dakota, so I have worn them ice fishing and trekking through a blizzard with 12 inches of snow on the ground. The traction on the bottom is great for snow, but not the best on slick ice.. so just be extra careful! :) Even on non-snowy days, I can wear my Sorel’s and my feet stay super comfy and I get so many compliments! I went back and forth trying to decide whether to buy the 9 or 9.5, as I often land between the two and I didn’t want them to be too loose or too snug. I finally went with the 9 and it fits perfectly! (Once I add a thicker sock they are a little too tight, so if you like to wear those I would suggest bumping up a half size when ordering.) This was my first Sorel purchase, and overall I am very pleased.. Can’t wait to buy my second pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fall/Winter Boot I love these boots! Be aware, the laces are longer so you'll have a tie in the front so they don't look like the photo but often I'll wrap it around my ankle to give it another look. These are so extremely comfortable and durable. I'm a teacher and I wear them all day teaching and I live in Minnesota and can wear them in the cold/snow without any trouble. I get compliments on them all the time! I'll be purchasing the brown ones soon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great city boot that stands up to the elements These boots are so cute! The wedge makes them seem like they have a tall heel, but they are very comfortable to walk in. Great traction. Looks good with jeans or skirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for everything and edgy I wanted to find another low boot for work. I work 12hrs/day but need to look professional. I went to a local store and tried on many and sort of decided on one when I asked to try this mid boot on. OMG, just blew me away. The footbed is very cushioned, it fit perfectly-when does that ever happen? the store only had the gray so I went home to think about it-they are expensive and decided to go on line. Sorel website offered Black. So I tossed it around for a couple of hrs when I finally decided to just plunge in. I wear them to work and they are very fashionable and stylish. They look great with all my trousers and I have worn them with tights and long tunics too. I have gotten several compliments and best of all..my feet are not hot, hurting or squished. They run very true to size, have a good toe-box for those turned up toes and there is no sliding around in the shoe as it laces up. If you want to wear very thick socks buy half size up. I live in a very rainy environment and these are waterproof. Oh, do wear socks or tights as the black leather dye will tint your skin, it comes off with soap and water. LOVE these and they are really worth the price. They can be worn year round with jeans, dress trousers, tights and tunics or casual dresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with these! I'm absolutely loving these boots! They're stylish, durable, and surprisingly warm/insulating. They're also quite comfortable. I can spent my whole day in these and forget to take them off when I get home. I would definitely recommend getting these! Every year I try out a new pair and these are, most definitely, one of my favorite Sorel boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boot! Absolutely love this boot! I was torn between a 7 or 7.5 and decided to go with the half size smaller and it was perfect. So comfortable and great in rain/snow! I get a lot of compliments on them as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes do! I would most definitely recommend these. I was a little hesitant since I am a hairstylist and would be wearing the wedges for a 10 hour shift on my feet. But they are GREAT! My feet, back, and shoulders don’t hurt after work. They are super comfy, supportive, and cute! Love love them!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I wear a 9.5. Lucky enough to try on a size 10 and a size 9 while at a Columbia store because they were out of 9.5. 10 was too large, 9 was slightly too small so 9.5 would be the perfect fit for me; however, wearing these I've noticed that when I walk, my heels pull up slightly causing my socks to creep down...and we all know how annoying that is. Still LOVE LOVE LOVE this boot though...Stylish and helping me through Chicago weather at the same time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boot I own a couple pairs of Soren boots, but these were my first pair. The moment I tried them on, I knew I had to have them. I had foot surgery and most boots with a heel are not comfortable but these are great. I can wear them all day with no problem. Living in SD they're great on snow and ice (better than running shoes) I feel they are true to size also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functionable, fashionable I purchased the Joan of Arctic Wedge in Dark Fog for myself last year. I receive many compliments on them whenever I wear them. What I love about them is that they are very cute - they look great with skinny jeans and sweaters, but most importantly, they are so functionable for snowy weather. I never have to worry about my footing in any Sorel shoe. Living in northern Wisconsin, this is a must. I purchased another pair in black for my teenage daughter for Christmas because she was coveting my pain - she loves them and they fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots ever! Kudos to Sorel for creating a boot that marries style with comfort, warmth, and practicality! This boot is stunning...an eye-stopper that works in snow and on the dance floor. My only regret is that Lea is sold out...I want to purchase it in other colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I got these for Christmas from my husband in a 7 1/2. They are a little big but I went out immediately and bought thick socks and they might be the most comfortable shoes I own and are most definitely the most comfortable heels I’ve ever had on my feet! I’m usually in between a 7 and a 7 1/2. Great for snow and ice. If you’re on the fence....GET THEM NOW! You won’t regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love! I have a hard time getting shoes and boots to fit well, but these boots were comfortable from the minute I put them on. They look fantastic with both leggings and jeans. The quality is excellent and they are very well made. Don't be put off by the heel height. The grade of the heel is very subtle, so it puts your foot in a comfortable position without pinching your toes or throwing you off balance. I'm already planning my next Sorel purchase. I just wish I had bought these earlier in the season, as the sizes in the boots I want are getting harder to find. If you find something in your size, buy it now, or it will be gone soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So worth the money! I loved the design and read some of the reviews about the fit and wearability of this boot. I usually wear a size 9 but opted for a size 8 1/2 based on those reviews. The 8 1/2 fits great. They are so comfortable and I'm so happy with the quality. On my second day of wearing them, I had them on from 6am till 10pm at night and my feet still felt great by days end. These boots are so worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have three pairs of these I spent the most part of last winter in this wedge boot in three colors. They have carried me through 18+ hour days, with wind/snow/rain. I continuously receive compliments on them. They integrate well into any wardrobe, from sweatpants to dresses! They tolerate wear and tear well and I anticipate going through yet another winter them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST EVER ->Stylish comfortable winter shoes I tried these on and pretty much wear any chance I can...they are warm, waterproof and unbelievably comfortable for 3” heel. I did size down half a size but have skinny, narrow feet and did not want to float around in the shoe. Best purchase ever!! I’ve worn all day in Chicago with rain without discomfort or wet feet. I’m so in love!!! Sorel you are playing a dangerous game with my wallet right now....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't figure out how to style them with skinny jeans I recently purchased a pair of blank Joan of Arctic Wedge Mids and I really wanted to love them but I'm going to return them. If I could have figured out a way to wear them with jeans I'd have kept them. Pros: The wedge is very comfortable (I usually wear flats). I really like the look of the shoes and they look good with actual leggings. Cons: The laces are extremely thick so when you tie them you have bulky laces sticking out and they don't stay stashed inside the shoe. The black material shows any sort of scuffs and mine came already not looking like mint condition. It may just be that the material shows any little imperfection, I don't know. I had a lot of trouble getting these to look ok with skinny jeans. If I tucked my jeans into them and walked around they would start to ride up and bunch within minutes. Wearing skinny jeans over them looks ridiculous with the laces. Cuffing them worked ok but I don't know how it would hold up over a day. I tried rolling my jeans with socks but that didn't look good either, though I could have done it wrong. I've exchanged these for the PDX Wedge. Hopefully those will work better for me with both my jeans and the boot material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute & fashionable, but overpriced & sub-par quality In all honesty, I love these boots. It’s hard to find cute weatherproof shoes for winter, and these boots are very fashionable. However, the boots came with the stitching already frayed in several areas, and after wearing these boots 2 or 3 times, I can already notice them starting to fall apart. The material is very thin, so it’s easy to roll your ankle - be careful. I ordered a 1/2 size down since I read that they run slightly large, which was a good idea. Overall, these boots are comfy and cute, but the poor quality does not warrant the expensive price.
