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 Joan of Arctic Mid Wedge I love these boots, they are so comfortable and you can dress them up or down. I bought these with another pair on Black Friday and I absolutely am in love with them. I recommended them to my sister and she bought 2 pairs. I will never buy any other brand boots from now on. I am in love with Sorel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Boots! I purchased my first pair of Sorel boots and I do not regret it. I live in New York and the snow can be quite brutal. These boots allow me the style and comfort I've always wanted while battling the snow and ice. The shoe is very durable and waterproof. My only suggestion would be for them to make more lace holes on the shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fashionable Winter boots ever!! I was a bit weary about ordering these online as I am not super familiar with Sorel products. They are exactly as described, super warm and fit true to size. Living in WNY these boots will now be a staple in my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable boots E.V.E.R I was a bit worried because I ordered these late for a trip to Las Vegas. They arrived the day prior. They fit perfectly and I packed them. I wore them 3 days in a row shopping and I never even thought about my feet or legs. These boots are SO comfortable to walk all day in! Highly recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Comfortable I live in a warm climate but am traveling to a an area with a "real" winter over the holidays. I needed boots that would keep me warm but still look good enough to wear at home. I loved the look of these boots online, and they are gorgeous in person! They are comfortable to walk in, and since we've had a few cold days now, I've been able to test drive them for the weather (although I'll wear them anytime the calendar says fall or winter).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! I am a hairstylist and actually work in a salon with STAIRS that I am up & down all day and these, wedge and all are by far some of the comfiest shoes I have purchased! Thanks Sorel for the comfort, quality and best of all STYLE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful boots! Absolutely love these boots. They keep my feet warm and dry while out and about but offer a cute, beautiful alternative to chunky, heavy winter boots. I feel very secure walking on snow in these. They grip the ground so well, including on ice. Very comfortable too. Can wear all day. Receive compliments frequently!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! Let me start off by saying I love my boots! I've been eyeing these boots for about a year and I've seen different colors come and go and I finally had to bite the bullet. I have no regrets, they are comfortable, durable, not heavy and bulky feeling and so so stylish. I'm already planning my second pair. There is a small break in period. Which I would say lasted about 3 days of continual wear. I love the fact that I can dress them up or down. The leather is beautiful, the stitching is perfect. Great quality. If you've been debating on purchasing these boots don't worry you won't regret it! they're gorgeous!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fall-Spring Shoe Comfort and style all in one pair of shoes! This is my second pair of this style shoe (have them in brown and the hunter green color) and I have received so many compliments on them... in NYC, Georgia, North Carolina, Kansas and Missouri! They are incredibly comfortable (I prefer them to any other shoe and I have very sensitive feet-that's saying a lot!) and look great with any outfit. Highly recommend. Fits true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! We live in the cold, icy, snowy tundra of ND... these boots are great for walking on the ice/snow and keep my feet relatively warm. These boots are very comfortable! I don’t usually wear shoes with any heel, but can easily wear these all day. These boots are super cute... I purchased the tobacco color... they go with everything! I have gotten many compliments on them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well and stands up to rain I originally planned to get a "practical" boot for walking to work, however decided to try these since they were advertised as waterproof and had a good tread. I wore them all day on a rainy day and they were comfortable and dry. There was a rough spot on the tongue that rubbed my foot, so I wear ankle socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heaven for your feet I am an addicted to SOREL boots - - I refuse to buy anything else. These are stylish and sooo comfortable! Guaranteed to receive lots of compliments. I have a narrow foot and ordered my size 7. Winter boots, I size up a 1/2. I have the Joan or Arc, Lea and Slimpack and its the only thing I wear in Minnesota Winters! I am also a true believe that you pay for what you get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too large and wide lace spacing Nicely constructed, but this boot ended up being too large for me. I typically wear an 8.5 in Sorel, and this was too loose in the ankle, and generally felt loose. I also personally didn't like how far apart the laces were spaced. I ended up exchanging for the Women's Conquest, which I absolutely love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Pair of Shoes I love my Joan of Arctic wedges! You will not regret purchasing these boots. They are super comfortable even when doing lots of walking, the quality is excellent and they are beautiful boots! I have these in Elk and they go with everything. They are my favorite pair of shoes and I plan on purchasing them in black too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOMB ***** I have have worn these wedges almost everyday since they arrived a week ago. They are so comfortable, and stylish and they go with everything. I get compliments on them all the time. They also have great traction on the snow or on slippery ground. I can’t wait to buy one in every color. I definitely recommend this product if you want to be very stylish and dress edgie. True to size. There the bomb...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best boot I own 4 pairs of this boot and I just had to have the brown too! It's a super stylish and sexy boot. It kind of feels like wearing winter high heels with awesome traction on the soles. Buy them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A shoe that lives up to the hype! I stared longingly at these shoes for about three weeks before I finally gave in and order them and they did not disappoint. Fit was spot on and they look awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and cute I finally bought these along with another pair of Lea wedges. They are so soft and padded inside. Got the Tobacco color. The shade will go with many outfits.I like that the toes aren't too tight. There is plenty room for socks. The whole boot looks slim on your foot and there is no bulk. The leather is very soft and feels worn in, there is a slightly pebbled look to it. I'm glad I finally bought them. I'm very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-Time Favorite Shoes I must preface this review with the fact that I have psoriatic arthritis in my ankles and shoes have become a major obstacle, until I found these! I've gone hiking, walked miles, trampled in the rain, through building site, etc. with these shoes and have not felt any discomfort! They are my favorite shoes. I actually dread sandal season because I can't wear these. Every year I give them a cleaning and lotion them up with a good leather protectant and they are good as new! I can't say enough good things about these boots!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't wait! Amazing, practical, comfortable, super cute. Ordered these after thinking about it way to long, this was a no brainer! Wishing I had had these all fall, winter, spring.... I don't wear a lot of heels because I'm always on the go, chasing kids, running to meetings, shopping and errands, not a lot of time to be tip toeing around. These are perfect tho, the short wedge is comfortable and not a pain to wear all day, they seem to be pretty durable so far. The style simulates the appearance of a much taller heel. So cool. So practical. Yet another pair of Sorels that I can happily add to my everyday wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashionable boot This boot has nice height in the heel and is very comfortable and easy to walk in. Well made and stitched however I've only worn then a handful of times because I just received them a few weeks ago. Very stylish and nobody else has them. Received lots of compliments. Seem sturdy. Im between sizes and usually wear an 8 or 8.5, I went with the 8.5 and they're perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelieveable I looked at these for a long time before I bought them. As soon as they arrived I couldn't wait to wear them. They are so comfortable and you really don't feel like you are wearing heels. They have great padding all along the footbed. I did slip in my bathroom this morning in them so I am interested to see how they do in the rain since that is primarily the reason I bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought 2 more I have owned these shoes now for 3 years and for 3 years, I have worn these extensively. They are my go to shoes, not only because they look great, but also incredibly comfortable for all day. Because of that, I purchased two more pair in different colors taking advantage of the great sale. You can't go wrong with these, there is a reason why they have been such a hit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish & Functional Wedge Love these boots! They are as stylish as they are functional. I wear size 7.5 . I tired the size 7 on at a store and they were snug so I ordered the size 7.5. They fit perfectly the first time I put them on. I have been wearing them for a few weeks and they are much more loose now. I love these wedge boots and want to purchase more in different colors and styles. I may try the size down as they seem to stretch after wearing. You will not regret this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it Initially I loved this boot, but the stitching quicky fell apart. Really Sorel? $250.00 and your boots fall apart? Really?!
Date published: 2016-12-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one small change I LOVE LOVE LOVE this boot. So comfortable, just the right amount of heel. Fantastic! BUT the top of the boot is loose enough that while walking, the jeans or leggings I am wearing ride up. One great way to fix this is to just tie the laces around the ankle. However, the laces aren't long enough to accomplish this, and still look good. Maybe add longer laces? I am going to try and find off brand laces that match in color. Otherwise.. fantastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wedges for the Season I read all the reviews on these boots. Thinking I needed to go up 1/2 size, I ordered the next 1/2 size up. WRONG....I have sent these back to Sorel. There is NO exchange policy. So, I have received a complete refund, already credited back to my credit card, but will have to reorder these if I still want them. After all the time shopping for these boots, waiting for their arrival, disappointment with the boots not fitting, shipping the boots back (AT MY EXPENSE!!!) I REALLY DON'T KNOW IF I WANT THESE BOOTS NOW! The season for boots is passing me by!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great style but not so comfortable I love the look and quite comfortable fit when you wear them for a few hours. but when you want to walk in this for a while.. forget about it. it is not for a long walk. my feet got blistered from this shoes even though I am wearing a thick socks. this is not my first Sorel boot. I know not all the boots are comfortable. but when they are... you don't want to take them off your shoes.
Date published: 2016-12-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from No regrets My boots are amazing! As soon as they arrived I have worn them ever since. They do run big... Because I read other reviews I ordered a half size smaller, but they're still too big. My feet are really wide, I thought a half size down would suffice, sadly they do not. Guess I will continue to wear my fiancé' socks cause they're so cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to wedge I've had these shoes for over a year, but still wanted to hop on here and write a review. They. Are. Amazing. Most of the time I don't even realize I'm wearing a heel because they are just so comfortable. Only downside is due to the spacing of the laces the sides between the laces get a little bunchy, but the colors go with everything, the shoe is ridiculously comfortable, and is my favorite wedge. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boot! These boots are sooo comfortable and stylish! Love the tread on the heel to prevent slipping! Love the wedge style! Would love a black pair of these or the tall style!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love Once again, love my Sorel purchase. Comfortable and stylish- I get compliments every time I wear them. Love the dark fog color, a perfect neutral to go with brown and black tones. Fit is true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boot, wrong height These boots are very comfortable and fit me true to size. I'm usually an 8 or 8.5 and an 8 fi great. They seemed to hit me at a strange spot on my calf however and were not flattering. Also, it is not easy to return from this site and you have to pay your own shipping, which is unheard of these days. Would recommend the boot but only if you're positive you're going to keep them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun style and very sturdy Love the sturdiness of the tall wedge heel. And, the ribbed bottom makes it even more secure in weather conditions. I wear a solid 8, but had to go down to a 7.5 in this shoe
