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 Mid Boot is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute I love these boots, nothing like them anywhere else. I wish I had known how large they run. I always wear a 10 and even with thick socks, these are too big on me. Order a half size down for sure. Color is true brown leather which wears really nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute & Comfy So happy I have ordered these! I don’t know how Sorel does it, but somehow they don’t feel like you’re walking in heals at all. Love them! This style is just what I’ve been looking for: stylish but a little tough. Love the tobacco color - just distressed enough to be interesting. They look great with jeans (cropped or rolled). And the shaft height is perfection! When I wear them with tights or leggings, they hide my cankly ankles and make my legs look long! Seriously, these boots made me realize what my ‘perfect’ shaft height is for booties. (Kind of like finding your perfect cut of jeans!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from slightly disappointed Don't get me wrong I love the look of the boot. I am a 7.5 in most or an 8 with narrow feet. 8 was too big and the 7.5 is slightly tight but being leather I thought it might stretch. The insert has no arch support. I ended up taking it out and replacing with an Ariat boot insert and the boot fits much more comfortably. I must say they are not extremely comfortable all day. The negative was that after 1 month of owning them the laces have broken and Sorel will not replace them. Very disappointing as they are not easy to replace the look and you would think that would be the easiest thing for them to replace!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love these Once again, Sorel knocks it out of the park with a perfect height wedge, amazing traction, and overall quality product. These run true to size. If anything they are slightly roomy, which is perfect because I think most people would choose to wear winter/thick socks with these. They're very warm and stylish. Just perfect. I think I now have 6 pairs of Sorels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with this boot! I haven’t taken them off since I got them! I’ve worn them everyday- work, errands, road trips, etc. They rock in the snow and are warm in the cold. My feet don’t sweat in them. They are soft to touch and super cute. It’s the most comfy wedge I’ve ever worn! I have wide feet and these fit great. I wear a 7 and usually have to wear a bigger size but not in this boot- the 7 fits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m in love I purchased these boots as a back up because the pdx wedge boots that I wanted were no longer available in my size. I am so glad that I did because they are incredibly comfortable and warm. I am on my feet all day, these boots feel as great at the end of the day as when you first put them on. The best part is they are as stylish as they are comfortable. I am a Sorel customer for life... looking forward to my next boot purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hairstylist Style This product has it ALL. I received a generous gift from one of my clients at work for my birthday and Christmas. With this gift I bought these shoes that I have been wanting for the past 3 years! They completely live up to the price! I have worn these EVERY single day for the past 2 weeks and I stand all day... 10 hours usually and my feet do not hurt at all. I even got home from work one day after it had snowed and shoveled in these shoes. That same day, someone came into my salon and told me how they loved my shoes. They honestly have it all; style, comfort, and grip. AMAZING!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST I'm on my 4th pair of wedge Sorels because you cannot beat the style, comfort, durability, waterproof effectiveness and insane traction of the rubber soles. I mean honestly, what more can you ask for on the function end all while everyone stops to tell you how cute your boots are. Nailing it again Sorel! *I wear a 10 in all Sorels but for some reason this style runs a bit big so I suggest trying on in person if you can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish Wedge So comfortable to wear all day. These are very cute wedges that are also waterproof such a plus in the Pacific Northwest. Can't say enough on how I love these shoes and they go with most anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will LOVE these boots! I am in love with these wedges! The look high - but they are SO comfortable! And being waterproof for Midwest winters while still being unbelievably cute - these are a rare find. The first time I wore them everyone was asking about them an wanting to try them on. There’s a little sticker shock with the price, but I think they are worth it - wear them all winter long. True to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter Boots Oozing with Style! Everyone knows that winter boots are a dreaded "must have" for midwest living; mostly function over style. Well, Sorel has achieved both style AND functionality with its Joan of Artic Wedge mid boot. My pair arrived before the first major snow fall of the season and I love them! The molded sole makes for good traction when walking through snowy, slushy streets. The treated leather repels water nicely. The boots are warm, cozy and comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorite winter boots I normally wear a 7 or 7.5 depending on the shoe. I have wide, flat feet so sometimes I have to size up to prevent my pinky toe from getting too cramped. Initially I ordered these boots in a 7 and had to exchange for a 7.5 to allow my pinky toe some room. The 7.5 was perfect with some extra wiggle room, but I prefer this rather than too tight. I am able to wear these wedge boots for hours and not have any foot or arch pain. I appreciate the extra height of these wedges as I am only 5ft 2 inches and I finally feel taller when I wear these stylish boots. These are perfect with skinny jeans or leggings!

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.
