I've ordered and returned several pairs of these trying to find the right size. I think it's great that Sorel wanted to make a less clunky snow boot for a woman's foot, but they actually went a little too narrow in the toe area. My feet are average width, but my toes felt squeezed, and that was after I tried on literally 5 different sizes (from a 7 to a 9)! They are cute for snow boots, definitely less huge and therefore more wearable. They seem sturdy, but I can't keep them as they hurt my toes, even as my heels are slipping out of larger sizes! The search continues.

Love, love, love these boots! I bought them for a ski trip and they worked out perfectly! I wore them every day of my vacation. They are very comfortable and my feet stayed warm and dry while playing in the snow with my kids. I ordered a half size larger than my usual shoe size, like I do with all boots.

Just what I wanted. These boots are warm, very comfortable, and have good traction in snow and on ice. They are attractive too!

I bought these mainly for snowshoeing, but we haven't had enough snow. I've been wearing them to walk my son to the bus stop and they are very comfortable. They are not very good on ice though. They seem to be really warm. I ordered 1/2 size bigger so that I can wear thick socks; even without the thick socks they fit pretty well. I am really happy with these boots, now just wish we would get some snow!

I was looking for a boot with some comfort, warmth, and style. Managed to find all 3! I took the advice of other reviews and got these boats a half size larger. However, they're pretty warm without having to put on thick socks also, so maybe could have gotten away with getting my usual 8.

Nice boot. Runs small. I tried my size and a half size larger and my toes still bump the front. Looks to be a very waterproof and snow proof boot. Would recommend. Just size up one full size to start.

Looking for a nice warm winter boot; tried these on in a store which did not have the light color; the size 8M in the store fit just right, even though I have a wide 7-1/2 foot. The ones I ordered at Zappos are way too tight, even though marked an 8M. Hmmm....has happened before (in store fits, internet purchase same size doesn't). Just wondering why. Sorels are good boots; have a similar Columbia same style, 8M, which fits OK. Could these Sorels be miss marked size-wise?

I love these boots. We just moved to Colorado and I bought them to take on a trip to Aspen. We walked and hiked and my feet felt good. Only once did I feel like my feet might be getting wet from snow piled up on top of my foot (and melting into the boot) but they dried quickly. I had ordered a 1/2 size larger than normal and they fit great!

I love these boots. They fit well all over, and are keeping my toes, feet, and ankles warm and dry in the Denver snow. And, they don't feel clunky. Buy them!

Got them today and cannot wait to wear them in the snow tomorrow. These boots feel and look great and are toasty warm inside. If they are anything like my Sorel hiking boots they will be just as warm and functional outside. Thanks Zappos for having larger sizes and shipping so quickly!

Love Sorel's! This is a comfortable boot, especially for a snow boot. It's roomy enough in the width. Easy to get used to, no break in required.

Keeps my feet warm and dry, I'm thinking I should have returned for an 8 1/2, but Kept my size 9's. I'm a 9 in every other shoe, this is a big but it is a winter boot. Have not yet had snow but did go out on a wet cold rainy day and my feet were dry and warm. Overall good boot.

My daughter tried on lots of boots before we found these. She has a narrow last but needs a large toe box. These were perfect. Sadly (for her) we did not get lots of snow this winter. She wears an 8.5 sneaker and we purchased size 10. 9.5 would have been a good fit but we wanted to buy up since she is still growing.

I love the boots. They are light enough to go snowshoeing for a couple hours without feeling weighed down. I am glad that I scanned the other reviews and ordered one size larger. These boots keep my feet warm!

Lightweight and flexible. With my high arch they felt very snug across the top of my foot. A little too tight for comfort overall. Not much room for a smartwool sock.

Just got these boots in the mail. I'm a size 8 but ordered a size 8.5 because I went based off of what other buyers suggested on how you should order a 1/2 size larger than your normal size AND I'M GLAD I DID. I tried them on, they're so comfortable, enough toe room and you could even wear thick socks with it. I'm an 8 and have wide feet so ordering and 8.5 was perfect because these boots do not snug me too much or hurt the side of my pinky toes. I have yet to wear them in the snow, as I live in Boston and it has not snowed yet, but by the looks of these boots they really look like they can handle the New England weather. I definitely recommend them! They're cute too. Worth every penny.

First-rate winter/mud-season boot! I tried about four different Sorel styles this fall/winter, trying to find just the right one to wear while running errands and wading through slushy parking lots, shoveling, and of course, making it through Mud Season. These were the no-holds-barred winners. They are SO warm, you don't even need thick socks, and I have been nearly up to my ankles in mud and slush, and my feet remained warm and dry. I living in the Northeast, so I have plenty of boots for deep-snow activity, and dress, but I needed something that would not look ridiculous while running around town, or shopping in Boston or NYC, but would also hold up to the vagaries of winter. You really can't go wrong with these. They are super comfortable, ultra-warm, well sealed, and yet also lightweight. I took to heart the reviewer from Chicago who said she walks miles and miles in these, and I can see how. They come up to the lower calf, so you can slip skinnies or tights into them, no problem. A couple of notes: I found these ran quite large, and ended up going a full size down (I have very narrow feet). Also, the toe box is very well padded with Thinsulate; if you have arthritis or have broken toes over the years, you might need to wear these gently a few times to break in that area. It can really press down on the toes at first, but gives over time. I also didn't find the innersoles very cushy, so I switched them out for some Dr. Scholl's ultra-cushiony 3/4 soles with sheepskin liner on top. They are now cloudlike.

These are great boots! I got these just in time for the blizzard of February 2013 and used them to shovel out and walk the dog. I was outside for about three hours and the boots kept my feet warm and dry. If you are between sizes would suggest sizing up. What I liked was that although they have a border of fleece at the top, they are not overdone with fur/fake fur at the top. This let my snow pants fit over the boots beautifully.

I usually wear a 7.5 but in these I ordered an 8 because of the socks I'll wear with them...these Sorels are basic, cute, sturdy -- perfect for the snow. I really like them because they are not too big and bulky like certain other snow boots.

I needed good traction and these work great! I love that I can tuck my pants in and lace them up; they're very warm, comfortable and cute as well. I would absolutely recommend these to friends.

This are great boots for the price. I've had them for three years and use them every winter. I can rely on them to be warm, waterproof, and can take a beating. No special waterproofing sprays or gentle care required. I would buy them again.

These were nice. Fit well, a little clunky but that's the style. Decided to return because if color doesn't stay white, won't be good...and in the dirty snow and muddy wet ground, it's not going to happen.
