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 Slimpack™ Riding Tall II Boot is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Utilitarian Style I am in love with my Slimpack boots. The color is rich and gorgeous. I like the updates from my original pair of Slimpack. This boot is just warm enough but not too warm to be an everyday fall to spring boot in most all conditions. It is easy yet stylish. These boots, like my originals, will get a lot of miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile & Oh-so-stylish I am very impressed with the quality and style of this boot. I purchased this in the umber/British tan color; it's definitely a color that I can dress up or down. As far as sizing, I sized 1/2 size up, and they have just enough room for a thinner wool sock (which is what I normally wear with boots during Michigan winters). If you wear multiple socks/thick socks, a whole size up may be warranted. The buckles in the back help with variable calf sizes. I cannot wait to bring these boots to Ireland this winter! I will be living in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish Rain (and Winter!) Boots I love Sorel boots and this was the perfect addition to my collection. I typically wear Hunter boots in the rain, which are great, but these Sorel boots are so much more stylish - AND they can be paired with a thick sock and worn in light snow. SO excited about these boots, which are adjustable to fit my narrow legs. I ordered a size up and figure a half size probably would have done it but now there's more room for a thick sock to take this well into Fall and maybe even part of Winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot! I love these boots! They are comfortable and offer good arch support. I wear a 9 in most all shoes but ordered these in 9 1/2 based on previous reviews and the size is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with these boots! I was very happy when I recieved these boots and tried them on for the first time. The fit was true to size and they look even better in person than they do in the picture. Great quality. I've only been able to wear them a handful of times, but the fit has been comfortable. I'm looking forward to wearing them more. Very satisfied!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Rain Boot I am obsessed with these boots. They are extrememly well made and stand up to the weather well. Definitely order a size up as other reviews have noted. The leather will "bleed" a bit at first but that's normal with leather. I have stopped buying any other brand of snow/rain boot besides Sorel because ultimately it is the best quality for the money that I have found.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order Size Up Beautiful boot, but other reviewers are correct...it is sized small. Order at least a half size up, and if you tend to wear thick socks, I would recommend a full size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boot - had to go up a half size. I have had my eye on these boots for a long time. I purchased these boots without listening to the reviews about needing to go up in size. I bought the Slimboot last fall and the reviews recommended going up in size, but my regular size 8 fit perfect and this made me think an 8 will be fine in the Slimpack, also. When I received them in the mail I opened the box and they were stunning. When I tried them on I noticed inside around the toes it curves both on top and bottom which made the size 8 just a bit uncomfortable on my big toe. I sent back the boots for return and ordered an 8.5 and they ended up fitting perfectly. Both boots arrived very fast and the refund for the original purchase was processed much sooner than I thought possible. I'm very happy with the boots and service and have no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous for the coming colder months I wanted a boot that would keep me warm and also comfortable in the fall and winter with a look of fashion, this looks amazing on and the leather looks stunning. These boots can be dressed up or work with a cozy outfit. Very complimentary look For the coming colder months!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! I purchased these for a trip to Iceland. I wanted a comfortable, stylish, and weatherproof boot that I could wear when walking around town or natural attractions. So far I'm loving these boots and would highly recommend them. I did end up having to return my usual size and order a half size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb boots! Upon reading reviews of this boot, I was nervous about the sizing since many said that they tend to run small. I ordered a half-size up from my original size (8.5) and actually found that the size 9's had a little extra room, which should be good for very thick socks. I'm not unhappy with the extra room, but if you like your boots to fit perfectly, buy your usual size. I am very pleased with how stylish and practical these boots are. They are also much warmer than I expected them to be. I love these boots and will be ordering another pair for my mom for Christmas because they are just that fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boot! I have wanted this boot for awhile now, and finally purchased. After reading the reviews I chose size 9. I usually wear an 8-1/2, but opted for the 9. They fit perfectly. I can fit a heavier sock in the boot if needed. The calf fits my athletic calves nicely and still room for wearing over my jeans. Love this boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs small Order a half size or a full size up. I'm an 8 sometimes 7.5. I went with 8.5 and they fit great. Probably could've gotten a 9 and had good room for socks. Definitely recommend, very cute on but seem to be sturdy enough for all weather use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Dark fog color does not look like what's shown in pictures, actual boot is dark brown. Upon examining the boots, my nail scratched the leather and the leather easily flaked right off. Not what I'm used to seeing happen when I pay this much for boots. This gave me the idea to rough up the boots myself to give them the marble effect I wanted in the pictures. They look closer to images now after I've rolled the shafts and the leather rubs off a bit. Craftsmanship is horrible as well, I can see black film peeping out of the seam where the shaft meets the bottom and it looks like glue remnants are popping through the stitching as well. And the stitching on the bottom looks loose and uneven, I have very little hope that these will actually be waterproof. I have other pairs of sorel that I love, these are not the quality I was expecting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Boots Ever! This is my second pair of Sorel rain boots and they never fail. The fit is just right and very comfortable. I have small calves and rain boots are normally very wide and don't look good on my legs. This boot is adjustable and I can even wear with shorts. Great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! This is my second pair - I have the gray ones too. I love the look, pairs well with any pant or dress. I always get compliments on these boots! I will continue to buy these as long as Sorel makes them. Runs small, order a full size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rain boots for a working mom After reading other reviews I decided to order a size 10. I am usually a size 9 in everything from dress shoes, cowgirl boots and sports shoes. I have never owned anything a size 10 before. Surprisingly the 10 fit perfectly. I compared them to my Joan or Artic boots size 9 and they are smaller - so beware these run extremely small. With that being said they are very attractive and will be a boot that will get a lot of usage. They are nice enough to wear to work on a semi-causal day and are definitely a dressy rain boot for someone who likes to go from work to a sports game outside on a rainy day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Boots Ever I buy this style of boot every year, they are my go-to boot for my walk at the dog park, and we go every day. They are comfortable, durable, and waterproof. I am constantly wading in the stream and mud and these boots hold up to everything and still look good! I get compliments on them all the time. I do however wish they would bring back this version of the shortie boot, I like the pull on shortie, and wore those out until I had to throw them away. PLEASE bring them back--the ones without the laces. Thanks, and buy these boots, you won't regret it. I size a half size up because I wear a thicker sock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOMEN’S SLIMPACK™ RIDING TALL II DUCK BOOT As a horse-owner, I am constantly out in the elements whether I like it or not -- (as most horse people have experienced, horses can flat tear up a piece of ground -- making land more than muddy) the rain and mud and muck are just a natural part of caring for livestock. I have tried almost every kind of boot in order to deal with feeding, cleaning and fetching the animals from the field. I learned the hard way how critical a decent pair of boots can be. To some people, it does not make sense to pay several hundred dollars for footwear that is going to get trashed, but in reality, substandard boots crack and leak quickly AND boots cut too low, allow muddy water to slosh into the tops. Over time, this is more than frustrating. I invested in these boots and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. They are unique and an amazing quality. The profile also allows me to ride in them as they are well-fitting, work in stirrups easily, and they look professional -- and best of all, MY FEET STAY DRY AND CLEAN! The fit is a bit narrow - which works great for me - so if your foot is wider, I would order half a size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Cute, and Warm I bought these before traveling on a three-week Europe trip where I knew it would be raining/snowing/freezing. I was able to walk in them all day and keep my feet dry and toasty. Good traction on the soles kept prevents slipping on icy sidewalks. Roomy toe box accomodates thick or multiple pairs of socks. The boots are surprisingly light and didn't need to be broken in. Now I wear them on any given rainy Seattle day; they are super cute and I get tons of compliments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love these I have been coveting these boots for ages and when they went on sale I was so excited. The fit is just awkward. I was hoping for a dressier version of my current rubber Wellington style boots. The leather in the shaft is just sort of frumpy. I have exchanged for a shorter style. (Also, you definitely need to order a 1/2 size up from your normal shoe size)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strange sizing, beautiful boot I bought these boots from another trusted store (as opposed to Sorel.com), as my third pair of Sorel boots. I currently have 2 pair of Tofino and one retired pair of Joan of Arc, all of which I have worn my true size, a size 10. I wanted a boot that was 1.) stylish 2.) could easily slip on/off and 3.) was waterproof for rain and snow. After seeing my boss with these beauties, I decided to take the plunge and order for myself (a half size up, at at 10.5). The size 10.5 was so tight and actually only fit on one leg! Mind you I have never bought/needed wide-calf boots. They were also so "scrunchy" that the shaft caved in very much on both feet when I stood up, and when I walked (see picture). Keeping these reviews in mind, I returned my size 10.5 for a size 11. Ding ding ding, I could get both of them on! However, the scrunchy-ness was still apparent, which was a physical flaw to me. Not to mention, I feel that the rubber duck part is a wee bit too big. Are the boots warm? Absolutely! My first day wearing them after a week of rain in Chicago, I had to wear thinner socks because I was a little toasty! Which obviously affects the already slightly large fit. Are the boots beautiful? YES! They leather feels like velvet, but because the shaft scrunches, I am worried about it creasing (see picture). Are they comfortable! Yes! It feels like I'm not wearing anything, let alone a tall boot with a little heel. Overall, I would recommend these boots to anyone, in addition to the information I've provided about my experience with the fit. Other people seem to love them, so maybe I'm just weird.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Stiff Boot I loved Sorel boots. I have four pairs. I ordered these thinking they would be a nice everyday Boot while living in the mountains. They were so stiff and across the top of my foot there lots of pressure. The calf of the boot is very wide too. It's seemed the boot is not proportionate from the foot bed to shaft of the boot. I sent them back. I found another pair of boots the Carly short boot which was much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Style & Weather Boots Bought these as a gift for a friend, and she absolutely loves them. She has messaged me at least 3 different times to say "THANK YOU!!!" and "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THEM!!" She's a size 8 and the 8 fit perfect with thin socks, but we exchanged for an 8.5 so she could wear with thicker socks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from recommend with reservations Loved the boot, got them for riding, which they are great for, no need for half chap and good in wet weather. They run a bit small so I had to size up one half size. the two adjusting buckles on the back are great so the fit is good with jeans or breeches. The heels of the boots came loose after a few months, I sent them back and got credit, liked them so much I ordered a second pair. The lining in one of the boots is baggy around the back of the calf and around the ankle so I am suspect as to the longevity of this lining. I still wear them every day, but wonder how long they will hold up. Love the design and how I can use them but the construction is a bit lame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sorel seems to run a little small Gorgeous boots, unfortunately a little on the small side. Google search resulted in many other similar complaints. I hope Sorel fixes this minor problem and I won't have to jump through hoops to get the footwear I want. Top quality product however.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Miss the old version I just ordered a pair of the Women's Slimpack Riding Tall II Duck Boot and was saddened to see there are no longer two handles located just inside each boot to help you with pulling on the boot. Why would Sorel get rid of those? It was such a smart feature. I was also sad to see Sorel got rid of the "wrap around" leather feature where the leather wrapped under the sole of the boot. It was a really cool look that I got lots of compliments on. Please bring these two features back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boot! It's time to grow up and toss those Hunters ladies - this is the perfect rain boot. These boots were comfortable from day one, and I have worn them in rain, slushy snow-melting days, and straight up snow storms. They are warm enough with just a touch of lining so it's not just your foot against rubber. The leather upper is beautiful and waterproof as advertised. These boots are also awesome if you have small calves, as the back adjusts to make them smaller or larger. Lastly, these are super cute. I have gotten compliments on them every time I have worn them - both to work or just out and about. The black can be dressed up a bit (I've worn with a wool skirt and leggings and also with jeans). The only reason I put good and not excellent for quality is that the lining is coming apart from the leather in the body of the boot shaft. It's still attached at the top, I just would've expected this to happen later, not within the first two months of owning the boot. Still, it's minor and only seen by me when I put them on. I would own these boots in every color if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Run small I am always hesitant buying shoes online without being able to try them on. I read all the reviews on these boots and most said they ran small. I took the advice and instead of ordering my normal size 11, I ordered a size 12. I'm really glad I did because my toes are at the end with just enough space between my toes and shoes so that they aren't touching. I've only had my boots for about 2 weeks now and they are comfortable. So far so good. Hoping they last a long time for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Small It's possible my foot would fit into the boot, but since it was impossible to get my foot through the bend in the boot, I will never know. Paid $30 to return these. I bought another pair of Sorel snow boots at the same time and those fit fine, so this seems to be a design flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish rain boot I didnt care for the look in pictures, but they are beautiful in person. I was very concerned about size bc everyone seems to say they run small, but I wear a 9 and the 9 fit perfectly. Other Sorel boots fit me at an 8.5 but these ones seem true to size. I especially love the color/discoloration of the leather that occurs upon wearing them and breaking in. We shall see if they are truly water-proof when I take them to Europe next week. I was beyond thrilled to find a stylish and cute rain boot for my trip to the UK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi season boot This is the second pair of Slimpack boots for me. I have loved the first pair and I receive compliments every time I wear them-so just had to have another pair when I saw they were on sale. Great for cold winter weather if you wear a warm sock, but also great for spring rains-feet do not get too hot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The style has changed I have skinny calfs so there was a lot of room and they seem too big around my calfs. Other friends have the older style and I liked them better. They weren't for me but if you have really muscular calfs you might like them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this boot! Love the boot. I've had it on everyday since I received it. It's well made, sturdy and keeps the feet warm and dry on cold snowy days. The boot is sized a bit small. I wear a solid 8 1/2 but had to send it back (at my own expense, you could improve there Sorel) in exchange for a size 9. Otherwise, this is a great boot.
