Love the grill/black color! It's dark enough that you can pull it off with black, but not as stark as solid black. I can't imagine any color that this boot will not work with. I'm a solid 8 and went with the 7.5. It fits perfectly with just enough room to wear with a sock. Super comfortable right out of the box. This is my first Sorel purchase and I am thrilled. Keep these super cute styles coming!

I'm going to get right to the facts. These are my first pair of Sorel boots. Am I impressed? Yes! I have a high arch and comfort is not an issue. You don't even feel like you're wearing a heel. Your feet slide right into them. You have to wear socks, but you'll still have plenty of room. I'm always searching for shoes that are practical, and these do not disappoint; you can wear the boots with skinny jeans and leggings. I was hesitant to buy them, due to the price; however, I am a satisfied customer and will not be returning the Sorel Joan of Arctic Wedge Ankle boots!

Wow, a lot of glowing reviews of these. My take is a little different, after all this is not just some cheap slipper but is supposed to be a high quality Sorel product that should last as long as not used roughly and given it's advertised ability to run out of the house. Not so much. When you get them they are like awesome warm puppies for your feet, they feel wonderful, look pretty great and fit right. Initial quality is excellent when you pull them from the nice Sorel box. Okay so lets get to the real nitty-gritty. Indoor-outdoor soles? Not in my experience. I did not get them to be able to go outdoors in specifically but thought it would be an extra bonus if I needed to step briefly outside (a few step trips to trash and recycle if needed) and maybe there was some dampness where I would be treading on the walkway. First time I try it I find out that the soles really didn't like any dampness at all. And I mean it was not very damp, wasn't raining at the time and my walkway does not hold puddles, I could have gone in stocking feet and not ended up with socks that were soaked on the bottom. The soles became tacky, almost like nearly set rubber cement, whatever was in my path stuck to them and the sole puffed up afterwards. Okay I think, I won't wear them outside at all if it's damp and I didn't, I didn't even wear them outside if it was dry since I have slip-ons I can switch into. So it took a little while and the soles returned to pretty much normal, for awhile. Well before they were a year old the soles "ballooned" I guess I would call it and the glue holding them to the slipper bottom failed mid-sole to near the edges. This gave the effect that air had been injected behind the sole and slipper bottom. Annoying and looked goofy. I thought, okay, these are not holding up quite as they should so I'm going to return them because of this defect and maybe some replacements won't do it. My problem was that I let the one year return date slip by, my fault, should have taken advantage of Zappos great return policy since when you spend a lot for some quality Sorel slippers you expect them to last awhile and I'm not exactly made of money these days. I spent that cost figuring that with my use, as with most of my shoes that see light use, I'd get at the very least 5 years of use out of them if not more, after all, all they had to do was keep my feet cozy here inside my home in the PNW. So I continued to wear them with the silly looking puffed up soles and they amazingly stayed intact for another 6 months approximately, after all they were stitched around the perimeter so they couldn't just come off. Then the soles began to break down completely and disintegrate where the glue released. It's now 2 1/2 years later and amazingly I'm still wearing the tattered remains of them. The soles are gone except for the perimeter where the glue and stitching continue to hold what is left in place and the undersole is gradually wearing away. Being unemployed now for over 2 years and not being able to spare the funds to replace them I have little choice. I've repeatedly examined getting some cheapo replacements but feel that as before I'd just be tossing away money on junk as I had before. So Sorel, despite having some really nice Sorel boots I love, and have for some time, I think I'll be taking my business somewhere else. I just cannot imagine paying $65 for some replacement Manawans and tolerating this happening again. Maybe it's been fixed since I see this same style is still going years later. Maybe I just got some lemons and the soles on these these were faulty and I should have been more vigilant and returned them. If not for this glaring breakdown of the soles I would still be very happy with them to this day. Unfortunately that is not the case. These need more durable soles considering what happened to them and I wore them outside only just once.

I love this shoe and I love being seen in this shoe. Great for chilly winter days. I haven't used it in a downpour but I made out fine in the unusually snowy winter we had.

Love my boots got them at the beginning of winter and I I use these boots every day. When it's 2 feet of snow and I gotta get my 4 wheeler out shovel the road I was warm! It's never happened before. Totally worth the money. Once my daughters get big enough they'll be wearing this for winter.

I needed something to get me through the New York City winter of '14. These boots served me well and they were incredibly comfortable. Alas, after three months of trudging through the streets, I began to hear that telltale sucking sound when I was on dry pavement. This is the sound of water trapped in the shoe, and sure enough both heels had worn down through the rubber and perforated. And so it is with a heavy heart that I return them, because they were darn cozy shoes (and not too heavy). Now that I'm back home in Los Angeles, I may order another pair just for light usage - because they do keep the feet warm.

These were sort of a mixed bag for me. On one hand, they're very comfy and warm. They look great. The sole is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use and they seem to have held together quite well. On the other hand, the fur lining is garbage. It breaks apart with every wear and the entire house has bits of fur lining on the floor. You can tell where I have taken my slippers off for sure. Also, they run small. I wear a 9.5 show and ordered a 10 in these. I can't wear a pair of socks (not even very thin ones) with these slippers or they go on and wear very tightly. Walking around in them is a treat as they feel wonderful. Just make sure you keep a vacuum ready to suck up all the fur.

What I love most about these is that they have a removable insert that is washable. Instead of having to wash the whole slipper, you can wash just the smelly part. They are comfortable and warm and very nice slippers.

Amazing! Basically my favorite shoe of all time! I bought these for my back packing trip across Europe and I made an amazing choice. They look so cute with even the girliest outfits including dresses. They were great for support non slip (my husband slipped a few times) great for the rainy weather. I had to have walked 12+ hours for 16 days. I live in Hawaii and still wear them all the time for dancing and going out.

Really comfortable, great-looking slipper, but it started falling apart on me in about a year. A seam split open and I can't rate a fairly expensive slipper highly after that.

I love these rain boots but after having them for approximately 5 months, the elastic behind the faux buckle completed shredded. I'm up in arms as of what to do, I'll contact Zappos and then Sorel to see if I can get a replacement. But, on a stylistic approach, you can't get any better. I've received so many compliments. They are super, super cute boots!

I love this slipper except for the phony fleece, which after three months is already disintegrating. The heel is too short and the slippers won't stay on. Other than that. I would have loved them.

These are the only reason that I do not want the cold weather to end. I have worn them as many days as there are dollars in the price. They are worth every one. They are the perfect boots, please Sorel, never change them! I will be buying and wearing them forever!

Wonderful fit right out of the box. I have insteps so high that boots are usually a huge problem for me and I wouldn't even bother trying these if it weren't for Zappos easy return policy. But they practically slipped right on, and there is plenty of arch support, and the soles are cushy and comfortable all day, and the best part is that my feet didn't get cold once all winter. In Chicago. The soles aren't any better than any other boot on wet surfaces including ice, but they are certainly no worse than any other shoe.

I bought these boots just before the first polar vortex of 2014, and I don't know how I would have survived the winter without them! Warm, waterproof, durable... and attractive. They are worth every penny. I would recommend them to anyone looking into winter boots as they are the warmest and best ones I have ever owned.

These boots are amazing. I got them for Christmas and have worn them almost everyday since. I live in Denver and frequent the mountains and these babies go with me every time. I even walk my dog in the snow in these. I've never slipped, the tread is unbelievable. I've worn them all day to work and then out that same night. They are so comfortable and add just the right amount of heel. I'm actually a little sad it's getting warmer, I'll have to put them away to rest for the summer soon. Totally worth the money.

Hi ladies! Loved the look of these boots so much but was scared of negative reviews and price - so I did a little research. According to many skiing and outdoor activity websites, winter boots are supposed to fit loose. In order for feet to stay warm, snow boots should not fit snug like a shoe. So, the felt lining in these should be loose enough for a thick pair of socks and still not be snug. When people order a size down it contributes to their cold feet and complaints of back of boot digging into their heels. Order your real size and don't expect them to fit like a fashion boot. By the way, these boots do run in half-sizes. I own Joan of Arctics in 9.5 The second important thing I learned is that cotton socks make your feet colder! You are better off wearing bare feet in boots rather than cotton (due to the way they retain moisture). Invest in a heavyweight pair of wool socks (which wick away moisture) and never layer your socks. Layering makes your feet colder due to breathability issues. Finally, keep your core warm because when you body is cold, blood leaves the extremities. You do want to layer your body. Thermal underwear or a mesh base layer, a loose fleece layer over that, etc. I received my boots and followed these techniques with great results. My boots are very comfortable. It is a blustery 10 today and I spent many hours outside to test the product. If I was just standing there, my feet were warm! Unless I was just standing there on packed snow for a while. On packed snow or ice, you'll need to move around every once in a while to keep blood circulating. Warmed right back up! Took dog for a walk and my feet felt great. Only boot I've heard of that you can literally just stand there without movement on packed snow or ice without feet getting cold are those "mickey mouse boots." They are not cute but if extreme warmth is your ultimate goal, these are what they wear in Alaska, or what serious ice fishers put on, etc. Hope this helped! By the way...some things I forgot to mention. It is also very important to have warm feet before putting boots on (any boots). So if you have cold feet from walking around on hardwood floor, etc, they are going to stay cold outside. This is particularly true with well-insulated boots/socks. They will actually insulate cold in. And never "clench" your toes in boots. Wiggle them once in a while to stimulate blood circulation, but clenching them up has the opposite effect. It can be hard to find heavyweight wool socks for women in stores (I have only found mid or lightweight wool in stores). I found great heavyweight wool socks for women by Carhartt online. Work great paired with boots! We have had -20 degree weather where I live this winter. & mind you, I am not outside long during this temperature, but when I am for a quick shovel, my feet are the warmest part of me in my Sorels.

At first I bought these as snow boots, but I ended up wearing them nearly every day. They're really comfortable. I wore them outdoors in the snow and even walked through a stream in these. My feet stayed warm and dry. These shoes are awesome; I definitely recommend them!

I love these boots! I ordered an 8, which is my usual size, and they are the perfect fit for a boot. They're a bit roomy so I could wear thick socks which is great. They're also very warm. Great style too.

I loved this boot, but it doesn't like me. The style is beautiful and it's eye catching, but it doesn't protect you from the cold and it's still feeling like a new shoe. It has left a mark on the top of my foot where it rubbed with every step.
