This boot fit me perfectly.I have narrow feet and it is often difficult to find warm winter boots that are not falling off me. These zip up tightly to keep snow out and have a warm feeling lining. I have not road tested them yet as I had also ordered the Sorel Waterfall and wanted to wait until they came so I could compare the two. Well, I was swimming in the Waterfall despite the fact I ordered it in my regular size as I had read it ran a little large.Needless to say, the Snow Angel stays and the Waterfall goes back. Will up date you on how warm it is as we are expecting another storm on Wed.

This is a great shoe, but has one major flaw. The zipper does not stay up when walking. It comes down within the first 5 minutes of wearing. This was a big issue for some and why I returned the boot as my foot became too loose without the zipper supporting my foot and my heel would slip out (I also have a high arch, so this might have something to do with it). Seems like a pretty major design flaw. On another note, I wore with thin socks and the shoe was a little snug, so might make sense to go up 1/2 size if you like to wear thicker socks in winter.

As others have noted, the zipper just won't stay up -- or, in my case, I could not really pull it up. Would be a disaster to try it with gloves on. Item returned.

Good snow boot - Bought this for a trip to Park City and was quite pleased with it. Trudged through quite a bit of snow with no problems. Stayed warm and cozy inside. Fine with socks, also fine without. Very soft inside. Honestly, I can't really say whether the zipper falls down. I've never actually caught it in the act, but I've noticed one of the boots was unzipped a couple times when I could've sworn I'd zipped it -- so be warned. I was concerned that it would unzip itself when I was active, so I kept checking, but it kept staying good and zipped.

I bought this boot because I expected it to be pliable because of the suede -- this is necessary because of a back problem. The suede is indeed pliable, but the boot was so small and the zipper so stubborn that I was afraid I would have to be cut out of it by emergency responders! For the record, I'm fairly thin. My husband pronounced these "bunny boots" adorable -- until he had to yank me out of them. I'd leave them to youngsters, though.

These boots arrived the day of the "big snowstorm" here in PA. They were a little snug when I tried them on, and then they fit perfectly. Buy your shoe size. They give good traction on those half-plowed sidewalks and are great in snowy areas. I had a little trouble with the zippers at first, but then they were OK. I am very happy with them. Spent two hours in the mall the other day and they were comfortable there, too.

Very good quality. Like the soft lining. We bought these to wear on a trip to Russia, as it is raining and slushy where we will be. I did have to order a half size larger, in order to zip the zipper up all the way though. But even the foot in the half size up was fine. It wasn\'t too big. And the exchange was very easy.

LOVE these!!! After all the snow that we got this year, these have come in real handy. They are so much better than my old Bean boots. They are very warm and I don’t need to wear heavy socks to keep warm toes. They ran true to size for me. If you have really wide feet, they might run a bit snug on the width. Zipper is holding up well for me although half the time I don’t bother zipping up since I just need to slip them on to let the dog out for a moment. These were exactly what I was looking for in a winter boot.

I love these boots! With 3 kids, I'm a busy mom who doesn't have time to mess with tying my shoes! The zipper is fantastic, never falls down, and enables you to quickly pop your boots on and head outside. My husband bought expensive tie-ups and it takes him 5 minutes just to get his boots on! I live in a snowy area, south of Denver. I've had them for 3 months now, through about 8 snowfalls. I've found these boots are consistently warm & dry & fuzzy inside. I'm really glad I didn't get the Snow Angel tie-ups. I'm thrilled with the zippers. I do have a pair of Cumberland IIs for really deep snowfall, but these are ideal for regular wear snow wear, and running errands. Arch support: I have normal arches and have never had issues with shoes. I have noticed that the arch support is a little light in this model. I might get an insole to help. The shoe is really fine for regular wear, but after hours I have noticed that a little more support would be good; it's certainly not a drawback, just something to be aware of. Sizing: This was a bit tricky, I was optimistic and first tried an 8 (normally, I wear an 8 or 8.5 street shoe). Ultimately, I found that an 8.5 was best for me. Zappos is fantastic, and allowed me to return the wrong size without any problems. Summary: I love these boots. If you're on the fence, buy this model, you won't be disappointed!

Comfy and warm boot - I was looking for a boot that had no laces and was not too bulky but still warm and water proof. I purchased this boot after much time spent comparing similar shoes. So far (I have only worn them twice) I have not had problems with the zipper falling down. I have very muscular legs and I have not felt like the boot was rubbing in the wrong way. I believe I ordered a half size larger than I thought I needed and it fits well.

Love these boots! I wasn’t sure I would like these boots only because I haven’t bought any in a long time. The first pair I ordered were the tie boots and were too small. When I reordered them, by mistake I ordered the zip boots. I ordered them a size larger than I normally wear. They fit great!

Love my Snow Angels - Great boot, very comfortable. The zipper frequently unzips on its own, but when I remember to "lock" the zipper securely, it seems to help. Perfect for winter in Colorado.

Satisfied! A tad clunky, as all true snow boots are. These will be snug around your calf if you have thicker legs. Nice traction, no seams until the rubber meets the suede. I had no issues with the zipper falling down, even with extensive walking. With a cold-weather sock, my feet stay nice and warm in the chilly Northwest weather. I wish the boots were waterproof, rather than water-resistant. Buy a full size bigger with heavy socks, half-size bigger with and average-weight sock.

Great boot if the zipper would stay up - Very comfortable boot and although sometimes the zipper falls down, I would still recommend this shoe.

This is a great looking boot, but the zipper is very stiff and almost impossible to get up (the left boot more so than the right on this pair). And while the foot portion of the boot fit very well and felt comfortable, the very top of the boot was too tight. So if you have a little heavier calf, this boot is not going to fit. I didn't want to deal with laces every time I go out the door, but I think the Snow Angel Lace will be a better fit for me.

Love these boots! I live in Utah and we just got a ton of snow so I got to try them out. These boots keep you warm and dry and they have good traction. They have a snug fit. I usually wear a 6.5, but I got a 7 and they fit great. They don't pull of your heel like some boots. Would definitely recommend!

I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews for new snow boots. I was looking for comfort, ease,and something lightweight and warm. These boots are all of those! My only complaint is that I ordered my exact size and they fit perfectly but with very thin socks. I will be returning them for a larger size, as I like to wear heavier socks in the winter.

The instep was tight on these, I returned them and opted instead for the laced version, and also a pair of Keen Targhee's for less snowy days.

I have had these boots for 6 years. They are my favorite "everyday" boot in winter. I slip them on without socks for quick trips to the store, wear with thick socks for longer time outside. I walk a lot when the weather is bad and I feel more stable than in big clunky boots on slippery surfaces. I remember the zipper falling down the first few times I wore them, I don't know why that happened, or why it stopped, but for 6 years they haven't fallen down!

I live in MN and walk my dog a couple miles a day, even in winter. I wanted something comfortable, warm, and stylish. These fit the bill. They were very tight on my ankles the first week, but now they have stretched out. The zipper on one side has fallen down 3 times, as other reviewers have noted. I tuck the 'tongue' of the boot in very tightly, which seems to help.

The zipper does fall down when I tuck my pants in. There must be something about how much bulk there is there. The boots are too loose to wear unzippered. Even though this is an older model, I feel the Sorel look is pretty timeless. I probably would return them due to the zipper issue, but I am tired of looking for this style.

I don't have fat legs but they felt narrow in the shaft and I had some trouble with the zipper either not staying up or becoming caught, not being able to go up or down.

I wanted to love these but they were too tight around the ankle to be comfortable. I am not large, size 12 pants, but was wearing smart wool socks, which I often wear in winter. These are too confining for me, I am used to slip un Uggs, lose and comfy. Alas, they sprung a leak and are not waterproof, so I thought these would do. Sending them back unfortunately. Otherwise true to size and well built, some arch support. The search goes on.
