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 love these boots! They are absolutely gorgeous and look great on! I have wider athletic calves and these are a perfect fit even with thick socks and jeans!

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.

When I first got my Conquest Carly boots, I was in love! They were a little big so I put in a sherpa insert (this also helped because they are unlined and not all that warm for such wintery boots). I wore them everywhere! But I have recently become very disappointed in them. First one of the grommets that held on the under the sole strap broke, and then a few months later the one on the other boot also broke. (The first was my fault for snagging it, the second just happened while walking.) For boots at this price, this is completely unacceptable. And recently I noticed the wood-look veneer on the heel has started to crack and break off on both feet. I've only had these boots for a year, and I didn't wear them for 8 months of that while I was trying to figure out how to fix the broken grommet. Lastly, the soles are very slippery on wet or icy surfaces. The boots are very cute and pretty comfortable (although heavy). I was just very disappointed in the quality for such an expensive shoe.

I really like this style boot but reading further into reviews didn't like what I was reading about these falling apart. I need something that can withstand rain sleet snow and ice. Buckle at back of boot was jabbing my leg.

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.
