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 cannot say enough about Zappos' customer service. I had such a difficult time deciding between these boots and another, but with the way in which they do exchanges it made my decision painless. Unfortunately, once I had decided on these boots I wore them once and the strap that wraps around the bottom broke. I called Zappos and was really disappointed but again with the customer service they had a new pair in my hands the next day. I am very happy with these boots no sign of the straps breaking again. They are true to size although I may recommend going a bit bigger so that you can wear thick socks. Not the warmest unless you have comfy socks on. I have gotten so many compliments including random people I don't even know. Am so happy with this shopping experience and my boots! You guys at Zappos are the best!

There is a lot going on with this style - very busy look to the boot overall. Also doesn't look like the strap or the wood veneer heel will survive for long in inclement weather so I returned it. As for fit, I recommend ordering up a half size -- seems to run a bit short.

I ordered these for my sister for Xmas. After reading the reviews saying order down in size, I ordered a half size down. Way too small! She wears a 9, and a ordered a 9, and she loves them.

Love these boots. But they run small have to return for larger size. I have a pair of Sorel boots in a size 7. They are a little big. So I order these in a 7 - a little small.

I bought these less than a month ago, and the lace snapped already. I have only worn them maybe 10 times. I sent a note to customer service to see if I could replace them, with no response. I was otherwise pleased with my purchase but am not too happy with the lack of response from this company.

These boots are so well made, I am very happy I purchased them. I get many compliments when I am out and about. They also make my size 9 1/2-10 size feet look smaller because of the quality of the design.

I'm so happy I got these when I did, because now I see that there are not many left in stock... and the reason is, these boots are BEAUTIFUL! They are versatile no matter what type of 'look' you're going for, and also very functional. The only thing negative I noticed was that the heal (where the leather meets the rubber) kinda sticks out on the inside, but maybe the leather will stretch a bit? Either way, these have such a cool look and comfy feel all around that that's just a minor point. LOVE!

Love these boots! I wear them pretty much every single day during the winter. I love the style, it's not your regular snow boot, it's pretty stylish and you can wear them anywhere! They got here super fast too! It was only 2 days before they got here and I chose standard shipping. I did, however, feel they ran half a size small and were a little tight in the beginning, but now they fit perfectly, although it wouldn't hurt to go half a size larger. Also, it is sort of a pain to put them on and take them off since there are shoelaces and they get pretty tight around the ankles.

These are virtually perfect winter boots if you are looking for style and function. I wore them during the recent Polar Vortex snow extravaganza in Chicago and my feet were toasty warm and dry. My only criticism is that they are a bit difficult to take off.

I think these are probably one of the cutest pairs of winter/snow boots that I have seen, so they if that is a factor for you, then definitely consider these. I think they look really cute with jeans or leggings, or you could wear them with a casual skirt and tights, too. Because of the laces, they can pulled in so they fit skinny calfs in a snug way, which is another bonus. I found them to be waterproof and perfect acceptable to wear on a cold, snowy winter day. My feet stayed warm and dry, though you do need warm socks since the inside is lacking a warm lining. These are also pretty comfortable and they are high enough that you probably will not get rain or snow inside your boots/ on your ankles they way you sometimes do with shorter boots. My only caution is that these can be a pain to get on and off, especially if you have a really high arch and the top of your foot naturally arcs up. I almost returned them for that reason, and then I read another review where the reviewer stated that loosening the laces can help. I tried unlacing mine all the way down and was able to get them on and off with ease. No more struggle! That is kind of a pain to do, but worth it for the cute look in my opinion. But if you want boots you can easily tug on and off and you have a high arch, then maybe think twice. I went up half a size based on reviews and they are a bit big. I would say to order your usual size. I have wide feet and did not find these to be narrow at all.

It's always tough ordering shoes online not knowing how they'll fit, however I'm glad I took the plunge and ordered these! They are true-to-size. I love them so much I wore them out on the day I received them! I really appreciate that they can be dressed up or down and are built to with-stand the snow, slush, & ice to and from the car while shopping, etc.

These just helped me survive a frigid a Boston nor'easter. They're not fur-lined, but I chose that purposely so I can wear them into spring. My feet finally got cold after 30 minutes outside at 6 degrees - and my feet are ALWAYS cold, so I consider this a selling point. They ARE tough to get on, especially if you have high arches like I do, but I just unlace them down to the third eyelet and it eliminates the frustration. They look great, which is a plus. Worth every penny!

Based on other reviews I size down to an 8 1/2 (usually a 9). I'm from California and don't typically deal with extreme winters. I would not recommend sizing down if you want to wear socks. The smaller size works well for me as I prefer to have my leggings cover part of my feet as appose to wearing bulky socks. That being said I wore them around in Iowa (-8 at night and snowing when I was there! ) and these were perfectly insulated for me. Didn't need the socks or extra fur to stay warm. The added bonus? Super cute and fashionable with leggings and a sweater! I absolutely love these. Only four stars in comfort and they aren't the easiest boot to get off by yourself! Practically have to unlace the whole boot, but that might be due to the smaller size too. Lucky to have a husband who's always willing to help with boot removal. :)

These are stylish and are totally getting me through the Chicago winter! I normally wear an 8 and I bought an 8 because these don't have the super-wide bottoms other Sorel boots have. I probably could have gone down to a 7.5, but by tightening the laces and wearing thick socks, my foot doesn't slide around.

Adorable, but as other reviews have said, not the typical Sorel winter boot, more like a rain boot on the bottom, and a canvas/leather upper. I thought they were true to size, I am typically between 7 1/2-8, I ordered the 8 and they are perfect, I can comfortably wear medium thickness ski socks for extra warmth, or thinner socks for more all-day comfort. They are perfect for apres ski, shoveling the car out, or walking to the store when it is slushy and gross out, but for snowshoeing / actual winter activities in the snow for extended periods of time I will be sticking to my insulated winter boots. My only "complaint" is that they take a bit of effort for me to get my foot in/out, but I tend to have stiff ankles, so I have this issue with a lot of non-zipped tall boots.

Wanted to love these... was concerned they were too small so I ordered an 8.5, which essentially seemed like it was the same length but wider, especially in the heel, so I stuck with the 8's. I bought Ugg insoles to put in them because they were a) too roomy in the heel, b) did not keep my feet warm at all, and c) they weren't cozy and didn't provide enough support.. so the Ugg insoles made a huge difference, especially with warmth! The reason why I have to send them back is because where the leather and the rubber meet seems to be coming unglued, after only wearing them for a day! NOT acceptable for them being this cost of boots. So my search for cute, comfortable, warm, weatherproof boots that aren't clunky and acceptable for wearing to work or out for drinks continues.

I ordered these in 8 first and was worried they were a little too small in length.. my toes kept rubbing but not enough where I was in extreme discomfort. They are wide in the heel, lots of extra room even with thick socks, which worried me because if you don't lace them tight enough, your heels will rub. They are definitely not warm boots...the rubber makes them waterproof but they do not insulate. I took the advice from one other reviewer and bought an Ugg insole for $15 from a local store and that made these 100X better...warmer, more support, etc. I ended up ordering the 8.5's to see if they would give me a little more room in the toe, and I was surprised to find that there wasn't much of a difference, they just felt more clunky and loose in the heel, even with the Ugg insole. So I am sending the 8.5's back and am keeping the 8s. They are adorable winter boots that are great for running around, for work, going out etc. Definitely not for dog walking, playing in snow, or being on your feet for 12 hours.

Awesome boots! I live north of Boston and we had our first real snow storm of the year yesterday. I wore these boots for the first time and my feet were perfectly warm and dry in 6 inches of snow. I've never been so excited about a pair or snow boots in my life. These are not only functional, but super cute as well. However, I will say that I owned a pair of Sorel Joan of Arctic before these ones, and they were a size eight (I am a size eight in almost all shoes and boots). Those were way too big, even with thick socks. I ordered these in a 7-1/2 just because of my past experience with Sorel boots, and they are perfect! I wore them with two pairs of socks, one very thick pair of wool socks, and one pair of thinner ankle socks. If you buy any Sorel boots, I suggest going a half size smaller than your normal sneaker size. These boots also have laces all the way up the front which make them a little difficult to put on. But it's well worth it. Love them!

I got these boots just last winter. Today the leather strap on the bottom broke on one side, and the other side broke soon after as I was checking it out to see if I could snap the broken one back in place. It was not unsnapped. It just broke. These are expensive boots and I am really disappointed that in the beginning of its second winter they are pretty much junk already. Not only have the bottom straps broken, but also the cute wooden looking heel looks really junky now. The wood grain appearance is just a thin cardboardy layer that apparently chips off after too much moisture. Considering that the toe is made of rubber, I would hope the heel would be ok in moisture rich conditions too. The worst part is that when the wood paper chips off white plastic is revealed. They could have at least made the plastic underneath black or brown so it would not be such an eyesore. So, yes, these are very cute boots, but with any regular wear do not expect them to stay cute for very long.

They are cute but very pricey for the quality you get! The strap under the arch breaks. They put a large snap on the inside where it gets caught and breaks. The leather stack heel is only a thin veneer, it is scraped easily and sometimes peels off. There are no liners! Yes, this makes them "not clunky" but if you are standing in the cold for a time, your feet will be cold. I went to see an actual pair at a local store to see if they had a removable insulating liner like old Sorrels, they had no liner. The store did not have new boots but had a pair that someone had brought back, twice, because the strap snap kept breaking. The snaps stick out too far and are in thin leather. Why they put the snaps on the inside is beyond me. I was seeing how they fit, because I was looking for some for my niece, and they were the right size, the owner said they were having to send these back. He offered them to me at a price so reasonable that I bought them. I took them to a shoe repair to remove the snaps and put low profile rivets in. When I came back to pick up the repaired boots, another pair of this same style had come in with the same broken strap problem! This is a clue Columbia/Sorel. I also noticed on my pair that the heel veneer was ripped in a couple of places exposing the white composite underneath. I have read other reviews about this problem before I got this pair, so it is an issue. 12" from your heel, not the boots, to top of boot.

So these boots are pretty rad. Exactly what I was looking for as a New Yorker. An every-day stylish but waterproof boot. (Now I don't have to carry an extra pair of shoes with me!) I got the black because in the picture the inside lining and bottom of the boot look brown- I wear A LOT of brown (more than black possibly) and really wanted that element. When the boot got here it was all black, no hint of brown. Plus the white stripe on the bottom makes it look sneaker-esue which wasn't my favorite. Also, they are a little short in the toe for me. They are going back for a half size up and the cinnamon color instead because I think it'll go with more outfits. There is a lovely tan on beige version of this boot which was my first obsession but every page (including Sorel themselves) are completely sold out. Let's hope the upgrade is what I want because I can't wait to wear this boot if it's as beautiful and functional as it promises to be! Also- customer service was super fast and polite about getting this exchanged quickly, and the initial delivery was also very quick. Thumbs up to Zappos.

Stylish. Easy to slip on and off. Warm. I wasn't expecting to wear these as the weather got to low teens and single digits, but it has happened early and they feel warm. I haven't stood outside in them for ages, so in that case, I may pull out my giant Sorels, but they are great boots! I love them!

These are the second pair of Sorel boots that I own and I really like to see how much they've progressed within the design department. Compared to the Joan of Arctic, this boot has a narrower foot box. The boots don't look overly chunky or big like some other Sorel styles. The Conquest Carly has moderate arch support, which is great to see in a stylish waterproof boot. Although the Conquest Carly doesn't have as much insulation as other Sorel's it's still incredibly warm. I would highly recommend that you downsize. I normally wear a 7.5 and fit in the Conquest Carly size 7's comfortably with normal and heavy weight socks. The stirrups add a funky, fun look to a comfortable classic boot. You won't be disappointed with this purchase!
