These were my first pair of Sorel's so I can't compare size much to other styles. In the past this brand has been so clunky and Croc-like on the bottom I couldn't bring myself to buy but these were so sleek and pretty I decided to give it a try. They are kind of a strange height. I am 5'4" and they stop right at the widest part of my already wide calves; making them look even wider. The laces are flimsy which is an easy fix but for the cost of snow boots with nary a real fur or shearling in sight I expect perfection. Speaking of the lack of fur; this was exactly what I was looking for, but I expected some sort of compensation in the insulation department. These felt like rain boots in the footbed which for a Boston pedestrian just will not do. So I bid adieu to these lovely boots. Maybe next year Sorel will get it right.

I was completely wowed by these boots when I first bought them. They are impressively stylish for a winter boot and they were comfortable to walk in even with a little bit of heel. I coughed up the money to purchase these no problem. However, after just one month of normal wear in rainy Oregon winters, they looked completely abused. The very thin veneer on the heel is not at all tolerant to wet conditions. It started peeling off very soon and revealing a not so attractive white plastic heel. Then the decorative strap that wraps under the sole of the boot broke off at the snap. There was no way to repair it, so it just had to be cut off. Now they are kind of an embarrassing mess and for the money a huge disappointment in the quality department. I actually wrote to Sorel asking for money back. So buyer beware. There are a lot of 5 star reviews on these and if I had written mine in the first week, I would have given them 5 stars too because they look and feel great. But six weeks later, it feels like money thrown out the window.

I bought these adorable boots for a trip to the Sundance Film Festival (we hit plenty of snow and rain and it was 20° for most of the trip) this year. I thought they ran half a size too big, but I did not mind, since I figured my wool socks would fill it out and I like a little extra room for my wide feet (they ended up still being a bit big). Much to my disappointment, the waterproof snow boots got my toes wet on every single day of my trip. I really do not understand how it happened - maybe a factory defect - crack in the rubber? I am not sure. So my four day trip was a bit of a bummer, with wet/cold feet (there is hardly any insulation in these things too). I am hoping that Zappos will accept a return of worn boots, as they will not be worn again.

Great boot for slushy weather. I normally wear a 7.5 and rarely a 8 in a sports shoe. These boots I had to order in 8.5. I have a narrow foot and the 8 felt good but my toes touched just a bit. The 8.5 is pretty wide now for me, but I put some insoles into them and with some thick socks it works just fine. The look is great and they hug my slim calves. I hope I won't have the problems with the heel and straps as some others mentioned. I didn't give it a 5 for comfort, because they are a little wide now and also you can feel the seem on the back of the heel, where the rubber meets the leather. Not a big deal though. Hope they last and are worth their money!

I fell in love with these boots awhile back and couldn't bring myself to buy them. Finally did around Christmas and my normal Sorel size was too small. I ended up returning for a full size larger. The construction of the boot rubs on your heel and pushes your foot forward into the toe box which made them feel too small in my normal size. They fit great in the larger size though!

Brands I'd also recommend: Sorel and Frye are my go to - expensive but I wear boots every day for work. Worth the quality.

These look very nice on. But are a bit tough to walk in, The laces make it difficult to get on and off, and they rub/hurt the back of my feet around the tendon. I was disappointed over all.

I love these boots! They are lightweight but very sturdy. And they look great, everyone that sees them loved them... One caveat, they run really small! I usually wear a 9.5 and in these I wear a 10.5.

I love these boots so cute. They are not super warm. I usually wear between an 8.5 and 9, I had to send back the 9 and go for 8.5. I love Zappos, the best.

Love them. Bought black and want the brown! I had to buy a half size up. Normally I always wear 8.5. Had to send them back for a size 9. Zappos customer service is fantastic. These boots are great for wet slushy snow. Need warm socks to expect a boot for really cold weather. Love them. Happy I bought them!

I would have loved these boots if only I could get my foot in them! I have a very high arch and my foot won't slide in. If the boots had a side zip I'd be wearing them!

Love this boot! I'm a true 7.5 with a very narrow foot and thought ordering a half size up would be too wide. I was wrong, I needed and 8 and it fits great. Great color and style. Love!

These boots are SO cute! I'm excited to brave the Illinois winter in style. They look great with jeans and leggings. My husband likes them as well, and he usually doesn't comment on my footwear, so I was pleasantly surprised by his feedback.

This is a beautiful and comfortable boot but like many other reviewers reported, my laces popped within a couple of wears. I contacted Sorel as I considered this a manufacturing problem rather than a Zappos problem and I was completely disappointed by their lack of customer service. The associate suggested I purchase replacement laces on shoelaces.com or that I return the boots to Zappos but that they would not be providing replacement laces. She went on to tell me "It's not like we keep extra laces just lying around". She was arrogant and lacked the ability to sympathize with my situation. Zappos on the other hand apologized and is sending me a new pair tomorrow. As much as I love the design of this boot, I chose to go with a different style as I'm convinced that this is likely to happen again. Thank You Zappos for your amazing customer service.

I am so in love with these boots! Super comfortable while looking so stylish. My main motivation in purchasing them was their look. But they have been functional also. Wore them in two feet of snow when up in the mountains and they were totally rugged, held up through the abuse, and still look great. I purchased them in a half size bigger so I can wear thick warm socks since there's no lining/warmth in the boot. I get compliments on them every time I wear them.

These boots are great, we went to Colorado for vacation and the temperature was below zero each day. Not only were my feet comfy but warm and dry as well. I got the first pair of boots and they felt a little snug, I called customer service and was immediately sent a new pair, with a free return sticker for my other pair. It was so easy. I recommend Zappos for online shopping and the boot for comfort and style.

I have read so many reviews of many different Sorel boots. And they are all so different. It is hard to tell, so here is my experience. I wanted waterproof boots with style, tall, something a little more casual versus the tall leather ones that I wear most of the time. I first bought the Joan of Arctic. It was so clunky, like a fire mans boot. They were very enormous and definitely insulated. I did not wear them, sent them back. I then ordered the Conquest Carly in 7½ (my true size) and it was small! And what was strange is that there is a seam where the leather meets the rubber wrapping around the ankle area. I could feel it and didn't understand why no one else was complaining about it on reviews. Ouch! So I sent that one back and got a size 8 and I really like them! My heel slipped in and the seam now hits above ankle so you cannot feel it like before. So if you feel the seam and it hurts, it is probably too small. They look great, they take a little time getting on/off but that is not a big deal to me. Very unique style. I need thicker socks for these boots.

I would NOT recommend this boot. THEY ARE NOT WARM OR WATERPROOF! Very disappointing after a winter of wearing them. I tried to return but they wouldn't let me. My feet are freezing when I wear them. Expect a boot for winter that's only stylish- not warm or weatherproof.

I am a size 9 in boots and tennis shoes. I ordered a 9 but had to send them back to get a 9 1/2. I received the size 9 1/2 boots within a day. I never have a problem sending shoes back. THe boots are warm and comfy. Very happy with them.

These are great boots. They are very well made and comfortable to wear. I think they would work really well in the snow with heavy socks. They are great in the rain.

I was super excited to get these boots because I'm obsessed with Sorel brand anything. I own quite a few pairs of Sorel boots already. I ended up having to order and send these back 3 times before I got the correct size. Sorel apparently doesn't fit true to size with all of their boots. When i finally got the size I needed I LOVED them, they are adorable and extremely warm. However, the back part, where the rubber meets the fabric, has a little lip on the inside of the boot. It rubs my heel/achilles raw. I have to make sure and wear extra thick socks in order for them to be remotely comfortable. Otherwise, great boot!

I LOVE these boots. They are much more narrow than the 1964 Sorel Boot which I found bulky and heavy. These are easy to get on and off once you get the hang of the laces plus they look great! I did order a half size up to fit thick socks.

Although the styling of these boots is great, there is an uncomfortable ridge between the heel and achilles where the leather upper is sewn to weather proof bottom. They also ran a half size small which is a bummer for me as I wear a size 11; no going up a size for me. I returned them for another Sorel style which look great, fit well and are super comfortable.

I love these boots! I've bought sorrels before and they're about 1/2 size bigger than the normal chuck Taylor's I wear. These boots will last forever and look great for a long time. I just gave my Joan of Artics that I bought 5 years ago and those still looked awesome. Did I mention just how much I love these boots! ;)

I love(d)these. Today they officially cracked in half at the toe box. Once, I get home they will wind up in the trash. I got a good year and half out of them. I was hoping to make it through two winters. But, the Sorel Gods were not granting me my wish. To anyone who is thinking about purchasing them. I found these to be great for my wide toes, my big calves. I thought they made me look slimmer. I got nothing but compliments. These are the sexiest faux-combat boots you will wear. However, they do not last as long as UGGS and are the same price point. That's disappointing. However, I am going to repurchase because you can easily wear them with extra socks and you won't sweat to death when the temp goes from 5 below to 60 degrees in one day.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrell, Ecco, Uggs

Absolutely beautiful! I'll save everyone a bunch of time and give you the most accurate review. Size: I wear a 6 1/2 - 7. I bought a size 7. They fit perfect. If I were to wear a thick sock, they would be pretty snug. I would advise going up a half size if you like wiggle room. THIS IS IMPORTANT- If you are like me and your feet have a high arch, it will be VERY VERY hard to put these boots on at first. Going up in sizes won't work either. I had bruises on my feet from the struggle. BUT, I wasn't going to give up bc I just love them! They are leather so they need to stretch. After they stretch your foot will go in much easier. I stuffed the boots and set them in front of my fireplace to get warm. And pulled the sides to loosen the leather. It worked!! Warmth: They kept my feet warm in 40 degree weather with no socks! Im pretty confident with thick socks my feet will stay warm while playing in the snow for a few hours! Comfort: I've walked and worn them for hours without any discomfort. Style: You can dress them up or dress them down! Perfect style!! I read a review about the quality of the shoe strings. Some say they feel like they are easy to break. To me they feel very sturdy. They are leather and pretty thick! Once again if you have a high arch, make sure you want to take the time to break them in. If you don't, these aren't the boots for you! But if you're determined like me to have these boots, you won't regret it!!
