These are attractive boots with excellent arch support. I walked five miles and was not tired. I walked all around Telluride, Colorado in the middle of snow and ice covered streets. I even went into deep snow and tubing down a hill and the boots did not get snow in them. They have great grips on the bottom to ensure that you do not slip. The waterproofing was excellent even though it looks like suede. My only gripe is that with prolonged wear they start to sag because they have no support. I am disappointed that I will not get a lot of use out of such expensive shoes unless I can get a cobbler to fix them.

Wanted to love these- comfortable and so pleased with the pictures and the style; exactly what i wanted and very unique. but when you put them on and walk 5 feet they get all baggy and slouchy around the ankle and the suede gets all baggy and floppy. poor showing for Sorel and for the price. had to return. NOT worth the price. I love Zappos, but very disappointed with these. I would NOT recommend them.

These boots are super cute and very comfortable. Just like some of the other reviewers, the first pair I ordered (in my normal size) appeared a little baggy around the ankles, so I exchanged them for a half-size down, and these fit much better. There is slightly extra material around the ankles but I don't think it looks odd. The material is thin, it's just the suede from the ankles on up, and the way it lays against the ankle and the rest of the leg reflects that. It's not a formed boot in that sense. (For example, when they are sitting in my closet, the entire part of the boot above the heel just flops over to the side.) But I loved the look once I got the correct size, and in the two months that I have had them, they have proven to be very comfortable and versatile, as well as compliment-worthy.

These boots are so cute, but like others said, my ankles slip in them (even with thick socks) and they are not very warm... especially for Sorel. Sadly, they are being returned and I am going with the Ugg Hartley instead. I do not like the look of them quite as much, but they fit like a glove and are toasty warm.

First - they are wicked cool looking boots and surprisingly comfortable. Second - they definitely run big. I have fairly slim calves, and even completely cinched up, they're a bit loose. Third - there is a weird pucker thing that happens around the ankle and the tongue at that point isn't wide enough to cover at that point. So -- Since I love them and they are comfortable, I had a zipper put in place of the laces and the tongue stitched down up to the first D ring. Now they rock.

Cute style but poor quality for the price: These boots are very good looking however, for the steep price I expected much better quality - especially from Sorel. The sole inserts they use were a cheap styrofoam that broke down in a matter of hours. I had to spend another $25.00 to buy a much better sole insert. Also, the shoe laces do not stay tight or even tied unless double knotted, therefore the boots become gradually looser when you walk as the lacing tends to losen up and give way. I spend more money finding a elastic type of shoelace that worked better to keep the boot lacing in place. With a few modifications by Sorel, these boots could truly be ideal both in style & function. I am dissappointed & wish they would have either priced these boots accordingly or compensate those of us who have already had to spend more money to make them better.

This is an awesome looking boot. I got this in black and found it true to size. It can dress up a little bit, but is really a casual boot that goes well with pretty much everything, jeans, skirts, leggings, etc. I can be on my feet, wearing these for hours and they are very comfortable. They are super warm. My major complaint is the lack of support around the ankles. The book is comfortable, but no matter how tightly I lace these, it slouches around the ankles, which ruins the look a little bit. I would really expect higher quality given the exorbitant price of these. I chose to keep mine despite the issue, because I loved the look so much, but it is definitely a big drawback, hence the three star rating overall and 4 star style rating.

Wanted to love this boot, as I've been looking for a black boot that could be both stylish and be good in bad weather. The boots are cute, but the leather does not seem very substantial. It just doesn't seem to warrant the price tag. Sent 'em back.

Love these boots! I have been searching for so long for boots that are stylish yet still somewhat practical for the harsh New England winters, and these are perfect! I have received a million compliments on them. They are incredibly comfortable; I walked around in them all day long and they were actually more comfy than my flat boots. Worth every penny!

I find these boots super comfortable and ultra stylish. They are a little bit "urban warrior" and edgy without being overly trendy. As such, I feel that they will stay acceptably fashionable in future years, and I do not hesitate to wear them to work. The tread on the soles yields good stability in snowy conditions but isn't overly clunky. The suede is soft and supple. The arch support is wonderful; I am a bid Dr. Sholl's gel insert fan and hardly leave home without them, especially in heels, but I don't need or miss the inserts at all in these boots. That's almost unheard of for me! With respect to complaints on the part of other reviewers about slouching/bagging around the ankles, this isn't a problem from my perspective. I have slender ankles and calves, and these boots give a great fit. I pull the laces tight and then, while still pulling on the laces, flex and point my toes a couple of times to really snug the lacing. Voila! No problems with slouching and bagging. I double-knot the laces and tuck them into the top of the boots for a neater look when I want that. Yes, the suede is soft and no, the boots won't stand up on their own, but that's part of what makes them so comfy. I love these boots and recommend them heartily.

These are super comfortable, and good in the snow, thought the tongue is only sewn to the body until the top of the ankle, not up higher so theoretically I guess snow could seep in, but I haven't had that problem. They run true to the European size which Zappos doesn't list on the size chart, but a little bigger than usual US size (example: I wear a 41 European, these are listed as size 9 US but 41.3 European and they fit great). Most US shoes I wear a 9.5 or 10. As people had mentioned, the ankles do sag a little after a bit. They look great with boot cut jeans, with tight jeans I think if you had a cobbler put another loop on the middle of the tongue between the top and bottom ones, that might solve the sagging problem but I haven't tried this personally since I only wear boot cut pants/jeans.

Love these! You could walk forever in them, so comfortable the minute you put them on. They are soft flimsy uppers but not a problem as long as you really tighten them. I thought about these for 2 years, so glad I bought them!

I absolutely love these boots. They are stylish, comfortable and warm. I am an 8½ and ordered an 8½! I wore them on a half mile Halloween walk in the woods and just wore them in our first Northeast storm; through slush and deep drifts (to get to my car) I was warm, did not get wet feet later in the day and wore them for five hours! I am seriously considering getting them in brown, too!

This is the first time I have taken the time to write a review and these boots deserve it! Being a woman of a certain age, ;) I have suffered my fair share of discomfort for the sake of style. Not anymore thanks to these beauties - the MOST comfortable footwear in my closet right out of the box, no break in necessary. The boots are fabulously made, no shortcuts, the grippy tread is SUPER. Yes, there is a bit of a gap in the lacing where your ankle breaks over but that cannot be helped - I just lace up as tight as possible. These are now my go to boots - I purposely choose out fits around them - you WILL NOT regret this purchase! Oh, almost forgot! I did listen to other reviewers and bought these a half size smaller than my normal size and this was good advice. I suggest you follow it as well.

Love them! I wanted a cute pair of good winter boots. I grew up wearing the classic Sorel in Colorado winters so I knew they would be a good boot. My only issue is wearing them in the snow they got wet and the metal buttons turned green...I hope I can scrub them back to original color.

I just received mine and I can't believe how comfortable these are! I love them! I usually wear a 7 1/2, I followed the reviews and went with a 7 and I'm very happy I did. If you are thinking of buying these, I suggest you should, I'm now searching for black.

These just arrived and I'm IN LOVE! After reading all the reviews, I ordered my normal size 8 because I never wear thick socks. Good choice - they're perfectly snug even for my wide feet. I pulled the laces tightly all the way from the bottom, and tucked in the top for a cleaner look. The gaping at the ankle is noticeable but not so much that I won't keep them. It's no more gaping than any of my other lace up boots and the tongue isn't too narrow for my ankle or 14 inch calves. The thick rubber soles add great traction. Best of all, the insoles are removable. These boots are perfect style, construction, and fit. With a spray guard, they should last a long time. They'd better at this price!

I love these boots. This is my third pair of Sorels and I adore them. I always size half down and they are perfect. These are not exactly winter boots for outside and being warm for hours on end, more like looking amazing between shops and lunch, but I still love them. Very comfortable and lots of room to tuck in pants or warm tights/socks.

This boot is feminine, comfortable, and practical. I just bought these and I love them! Living in Chicago, they are great for winter because they're warm and have great tread on the bottoms. I plan to buy them in brown.

I absolutely love these boots. A lot of people complain about theym gathering at the ankle, I am having no problem with that at all. They come out of the box ready to wear with no break in time. Great all around shoes! Also people complained about the laces, I like them. They make it easy to tighten the whole boot at once instead of having to pull each section separately. Love all around!

Love these boots! I ordered an 8.5. They were a little big but work out with thicker socks. I would go half a size down if you are planning on getting these. The buttons have patina finish which is a light turquoise color, very unique! I've got tons of compliments! I wear these to work with skirts and they also work great with leggings and skinny jeans!
