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 get so many compliments on these boots! They are really pretty, and now that they are broken in they are also very comfortable. They've made it through the rainy season at home and a week in the snow at Tahoe. This is a great boot.

I bought these to wear to the Army-Navy game a couple weeks ago. It was a cold day in Baltimore (not freezing but cold). The boots were warm, stylish, and comfortable for walking around and standing. For the price, I was disappointed that the rubber shell of the shoe peels. They looked worn after one day of wear. I own a pair of the Joan of Artic Wedges; they are just as expensive but the quality and make of the shoes surpass the quality of these boots. Though I love the look, I am still disappointed that the quality is not better for what I paid. Zappos' shipping and ease of ordering still remains five stars, I cannot say the same about these boots (unfortunately).

Do you hate that wearing in period of time where your boots are eating the back of your ankles? So do I! I think these boots deserve 5 stars all around just for NOT tearing up my feet right off the bat. Not only are these boot comfortable they are very cute. They are grippy when you need grip and not overwhelming when you just want to wear them in the rain. I haven't worn them in the snow yet but I look forward to it. Some others have complained about them not being warm enough but they weren't given warm insulation for a reason. I like that my feet aren't a sweaty mess on warmer days. No doubt you will be frustrated with getting your feet in the boots. It takes time to wear them in just right. You will battle with them. Do not let this discourage you though. Over time it's been easier to get my feet in and out of these boots. I suggest wearing smooth socks. I'm a bit worried about the laces as they seem to be wearing down quickly. Some people have said the laces haven broken for them, so I guess we'll see. Last suggestion, buy a half size larger to give room for thicker socks. Overall, I love these boots and I think they are well worth the cost.

Do you want to have dry feet? Do you care about style while having dry feet? If you answered yes to either of these, these boots are worth it. They are a bit stiff and the lining isn't plush but these boots are gonna keep your feet dry. Even the laces are waxed for waterproof. I've biked through huge puddles and my feet and calves stayed totally dry. As for style, I've worn them a few times and been complimented by other women twice! The only downside is that since they don't have a zipper (duh) and because they are a little stiff, they can take a few minutes to lace in and out of - but it's worth the effort, believe me. Also: if you have skinny ankles like me, these boots are pretty shapely so that's an extra plus. As for sizing, I typically wear an 8 and these boots fit perfectly, but my feet are bit narrow and as I mentioned, I have skinny ankles.

I am very happy with these. I wear them almost every day. Very comfortable and warm. They have been great around Nashville and I will be testing them out in upstate NY for the holidays. I don't see there being any issues with cold feet for my visit home. It takes me a minute to get them on and off because of all the laces, but it is worth it.

I've been dying for it to snow so I can wear them more. I spend a lot of time outside in extreme weather and I was worried about some of the reviews but I stayed warm on my 2 days of snow I've been in w them. I do wear heavy wool socks though. These boots are sleek and cool. I love them.

This is my 2nd pair of Conquest Carly's. I wore the first pair to death and had no hesitation ordering this style again. They still run small by at least a half size and if you had to go up a full size, you'd still be OK with a thicker sock since the shoe part of the part fits snug all around. They also made a much needed improvement on these boots since the first year they came out. They heel used to be a wood veneer, which would quickly start to peel off in wet weather. Now the heel is a durable hard rubber. These are really stylish boots for everyday and get many compliments! Be aware that the "shoe" part of the camo colored boot is not black like it appears in the picture. It is brown, like the surrounding leather.

I absolutely love these boots. I spent a lot of time reading the reviews and sizing. Went with my standard 8 and they are too small, my toes is hitting the end with only a very thin sock on. Will re-order a half size up.

I was looking for a warm and comfortable utility boot. Unfortunately, due to my high instep and narrow design of the boot, I am unable to get them on. From the picture and description it is hard to see if the laces are operable, they are not. I ordered another model already. Thank you for your great service.

Love these boots! The Only drawback is the laces are leather and do wear as you lace the boots up with each wear (which is why I gave 4 and not 5 stars). That said I love them and get many compliments on them but if you need quick on and off these aren't your best bet.

Lovely to look at. But I have a high instep and it's really difficult to get these on. And once on they are very tight across the top of my foot. Otherwise they seem quite comfortable. Beautiful, sorry they didn't work for me.

I almost didn't get this boots because of the mixed reviews that people wrote. I must say that this boots is very cute, warm and it did more that it's written. It is waterproof and insulated on the inside. But if you want extra warmth especially in the chicago harsh winter, you should layer it with some wool socks/hiking socks. I am usually a size 7.5 but ordered an 8 so I can snug some extra socks in. I would be very happy if this comes in more color though. I also wanted to point out how picky some people are who wrote reviews. It made future buyer very confuse about their decision. I agree that this boots has so many strings that it's somehow hard to take off. But come on guys, i doesn't take more than 3 mins to put on and it definitely takes less time to take off. Keep up the good work Sorel!

These are gorgeous and sturdy boots. They're not ultra-warm, but will obviously be paired with thick wool socks when needed, and I appreciate that I can control the warmth level that way as I hate when my feet get too hot. Biggest problem I have with these boots is the sizing. I originally ordered my normal size of 7.5 which were much too small so I sized up to an 8. After having the 8s on for a bit, just walking around the house and sitting down a bit, I decided they are also too small for nice thick wool socks and am exchanging again for an 8.5. But the style, ruggedness and otherwise perfection of these boots has me determined to make them work!

These are cute boots. They are unlined so the seams rub. I had to return them. They run small. I usually wear a 9. The 9½ was snug.

Love these!!! I went up 1/2 size to a size 9 and am glad I did. I can wear a thicker sock and put in a footpad for extra warmth. I get compliments every time I wear them and they ask where I got them. Zappos of course. My first choice shoe shopping place.

I love the look. They have light fleece lined feet and a smooth liner on the leg so pants don't bind up. They have some warmth but generally do not make my feet overheat indoors. For me they run nearly a half size small. The seams around the foot are not of great quality and bulge inward so they tend to rub and make the fit tighter in my true size 7.5. So I ended up with the 8 and in a thin wool sock, but they fit too big in some respects. I do have older pairs in the short and tall from several years ago and they are 7.5 and fit perfectly. The quality used to be better. But I still love the look and people always notice them.

I like these boots but don't love them. They will be great for winter, but: - I haven't fully broken them in yet, but as of now they are pretty uncomfortable and i have some scars on my feet from these rubbing them the wrong way. - inside is rough/burlap-py...not cozy. Need nice socks. - hard to slip on and off - you really have to undo all the laces to get your foot in and then lace them back up again.

Excellent boots. They are very true to size and the calf diameter can be changed enough to fit my quite narrow calves. I am very satisfied!

Absolutely adore these boots and received many compliments while wearing them! We just got back from Colorado and they did just fine in the snow. I also own Sorel Cate the Great boots. My Cate's are more playing in the snow boots whereas my Carly's are more hit the town type of boots (meaning they dont have the rugged look that my Cate's have). I was hesitant about buying the Carly's due to the reviews. Yes, if you have tiny calves they might be big. I am a size 6 and they fit perfect. I love them and would highly recommend them.

These boots are incredibly cute and for the most part quite comfortable. I did notice a little rubbing on parts of my ankles, but thicker socks would've probably made it unnoticeable. Unfortunately, they were just too much of a pain to get on and off easily. It was a hard decision to send them back!

I love these boots. Perfect for skinny jeans and snow. They keep wet out, run a little larger then size (so you have room for an extra pair of socks), protect your upper leg. I would buy Sorel again in a second, even if they are a little higher priced.
