I love these (once I gave them a little help)! They look so cute and are so functional too. I got a compliment from a stranger the first time I wore them! I also wore them to an outdoor event in October where the ground was a muddy mess, and they were great! Waterproof and durable and then easy to rinse the mud off later with water. I ordered them in a size 7, and am usually a 6 or 7 depending on the shoe (I'm a 7 in Uggs). With my thick socks on, I was still sliding around in this shoe. Also, they are not as warm and comfortable as my Uggs. So I thought about it, and decided to order the Ugg sheepskin replacement insoles in a size 7 and put them in these shoes. I took out the insoles in these (very easy, they come right out), and put in the sheepskin ones from Ugg, and they are a perfect fit and fantastic! They fit snugly and perfectly, and are so warm and comfortable! And that's why I love these shoes. They would not have been the same without the Ugg insoles. If you are going to buy these, I definitely recommend buying the Ugg sheepskin replacement insoles in the same size and putting them in this shoe. Then they are warm, snug, and comfortable, as well as durable and really cute!

I love the style, they're adorable and look great with jeans or a dress. Unfortunately, construction and function are a total fail! Within a month the strap (under the boot) snap bent then busted, so I ended up cutting off the straps which were chewed up from walking anyways. The faux wood detail on the heels scraped off exposing the plastic underneath, making them look cheap. Comfort..terrible. No support at all. I wear a 10.5 and they fit more like a 10, too small length wise but the width made it bearable somewhat. I live in VT and its been extremely cold this January, -12 with wind chill so more like -20. Haven't even bothered because on a moderate cold day they're useless and my feet freeze in seconds, regardless of thick socks. The rubber part is thin and more like a rain boot. These boots are crap for winter, probably will break them out again for spring or early fall.

I love these boots. I live in Chicago and this winter these boots have been tested! They're stylish and great traction. The size feels true to size, but not true to other Sorels. These are much snugger than my Joan of Arctic boots - but more like a standard shoe size (Joan runs big). I would definitely buy or recommend!

I'm obsessed with these boots! So far, it's been a pretty harsh winter in NYC so buying a good pair of snow boots was a must. After searching on Zappos for an hour, I finally decided on these boots because of all the positive reviews and am REALLY glad I did. I was nervous the brown leather parts on the Autumn Bronze were going to be really glossy (appears that way in the pictures) but it's more of a matte brown. For size, I'm usually an 8.5 or 9 and decided to go with the 9 (great decision -- if you are in between sizes, go up). And I followed the advice of another reviewer: I bought the UGG Sheepskin Insole Replacements (also in a 9). Heavenly! Best advice ever. These boots are warm, well-constructed and stylish. I want it to snow more!

Very comfortable and practical for winter! I have received many compliments on the boot, and am very happy with my purchase. I live in Chicago and wear these as commuting boots. They have held up very well in the snow and slushy weather.

I've never called boots beautiful until I purchased these. It's a tad tough getting your heel in but they fit perfectly after. The color is a pretty brown and since there isn't a lot of snow in Alaska yet its been easy to get around on the ice...no cleats needed! Warm, stylish and reliable and all season boot!

These are a perfect all-weather boot with a slight heel that still lends itself to an all-day wear. Comfortable, stylish, not too clunky.

As a Floridian having moved to the winter climates of Canada, I couldn't be more thankful for these boots. They're incredible in the snow/ice conditions but also so cute I don't ever worry I look like I'm wearing clunky winter boots. I'm considering even buying a second pair to stash away for next winter! Oh, and they are true to size!

I ordered these in my true size because the reviews said they ran big and the other Sorel boots I had tried ran small. They were way to small and I had to return them and get a bigger size twice. Once I got the right size I was in love with them. Super cute, super comfy, and great in cold weather! I go to school in Wisconsin and I can't wait to wear them everywhere I go.

Update on Carly Shorts, absolutely run true to size. Went 1/2 size smaller 8 at first & ended up exchanging for my regular shoe size 8.5. Am now able to get my foot in comfortably & wear any sock. You do not want your toe butting up against the front of the shoe. Again fits & looks like a fashion boot, not like a pack boot. Worth every penny!

Fantastic Fit, but know that they are a bit hard to get on, especially if have high instep. Probably not possible to get on w/socks that are anything but minimally thin & silky, at least for me. Had gotten another Sorel boot (tall riding boot) & sized up from 8.5 to 9, was huge so chose these Carly Shorts & sized down to 8, although an 8.5 my regular size would have been fine, too. Like that once I do get it on, they fit more like a regular fashion boot than a pack boot in their feel & walk. Oftentimes pack boots are slumpy & awkward, not the Carly Shorts. Did I mention they are super cute? What fun!

I loved the look of this boot. It had great color-- the leather was more of an olive-brown than I expected, and it looked great with a variety of colors. It was cut in a flattering way, and made my feet look small. My legs are slim, and some chunkier boots are a bit too much, but these were nicely proportioned. They felt warm, and the insole was cushy, but a fleece interior would have been nice. I normally wear a 9 in boots, 8.5 in other shoes, so I ordered a 9 and they were very, very loose even with socks. I tried adding the Ugg insole, but the heel was still wide for me. I'm sending them back and trying the 8.5 in the tall version.

These boots are amazing! I have a similar pair of winter boots from L.L Bean, but wanted to try Sorel after seeing the good reviews. I ordered my usual size 6, which fit perfectly, and there is enough room in the footbed for thick socks without feeling too tight. I like how the boots are not too heavy to walk around in and I'm surprised to see that the buckles on the side (which are functional) are made of metal, not plastic. I just have to wait for snow!

Size up. This is my third pair of Sorel boots since they upped their designs to something more than clunky waterproof buckets. All of my other newer Sorels are a size 8. These fit in a size 9. Much narrower and apparently shorter than I am used to with this brand. Very attractive! Looking great with skinny jeans and leggings!

This is a great shoe if you are looking for a slightly more feminine (but practical) all-weather boot. I ordered these wanting something for wet weather and snow in place of dressier boots. I really like the details and proportions of this shoe. It doesn't feel or look (on) as clunky as many other winter boots. Personally, I found the sizing to run small. I have a borderline narrow foot, embarrassingly skinny legs, and am in between a 7.5 and 8. I was really worried that my foot would be swimming in them. But after trying on, I opted for the larger size. Also, I ordered these with the Ugg sheepskin insert (suggested by another review) and can't imagine how there could be room for those. With winter socks, you probably won't need the Ugg insert.

These shoes are ADORABLE! They look so cute in person. But they do run very, very large. At least a half size to a full size large. It's hard for me to say if they are comfortable or not - since they were so large it's hard to walk in them.

First I should say that this is not a serious snow boot, as they are light on insulation. However, they are waterproof and have a great tread so they are good in snow. I just don't think they'd be enough to keep your feet warm outside for extended periods of time. But I love them! They're great for cities or areas where you have lots of rain, sleet, slush, and some snowfall. The sole is flexible like a rain boot and you can wear these throughout the Fall season, a great plus for me. They're quite comfy too. I ordered an 8.5, I'm normally 8-8.5, and they're a bit loose with regular socks but are perfect with thick wool socks which helps on the cold days. They're so cute and I get compliments every time I wear them. Zappos was also great with next day delivery. Overall, I'm very happy!

I never write reviews but felt that I had to considering the high price for these boots. I'm usually size 7 or 7 1/2. I decided to go with the 7 and they fit good. There's no doubt that they are cute And stylish but are not worth the price. I've had other Sorel boots in the past and these just don't seem as good of a quality as other. The rubber seems thinner and feels like my feet are going to be cold. Nevertheless, I have decided to keep them because they are just so darn cute!

Whoever recommended the Ugg replacement insoles is a genius. I could not find a pair of Ugg's that worked for me this season so I thought I would try Sorel. I took the reviewer's advice and ordered the Ugg insoles -- SO GLAD I DID! They seemed to lack substance with the original insoles, but the Ugg ones make for a perfect fit. My only thought is that I'm unsure how warm they will be in the snow, and honestly, I find them a bit expensive for what they are. Will try it out, so glad I have the right insoles though!

I hate to return these. They were really nice looking. They are also supposed to be really waterproof, which I was seeking. Comfortable in foot, but the ankle was so wide I couldn't tighten them enough to walk in.

These are the cutest boots and go well with everything. I am a size 9, ordered a 9, and they are true to size. The comfort isn't bad, but the heel made my feet slide forward so I felt like I was walking a little funny... I am sad to say that I wore them once and the material on the heel started peeling off... Zappos is great, but these Sorels seemed cheaply made, considering their high price.

I'm really torn, I love these boots. They are totally waterproof, fit great, totally cute, and kept my feet nice and warm. But they have one major flaw, the heels aren't actually stacked wood, they are plastic wrapped in leather died to look like stacked wood. I wore them once and they leather starting chipping off and getting distorted on both of the heels. And I wasn't out wandering in the show all day or climbing over rocks, this was just from my house to the car and car to work kind of walking around. In every other way these boots are very high quality, but for the price with everything else done so well I can't believe how cheaply done the heel is.

Pros - very sturdy boot, very good-looking boot. Cons - not very comfy inside, around the upper cinch area...high socks are a must, and the heel is not so comfortable to walk in.

The good: These boots look great with tights or skinny jeans. The suggestion of other reviewers to replace the insole with Uggs insoles was genius- especially during the cold winter season. Also, the waterproofing of these boots are fantastic. My feet were warm and dry after a long rainy day treading through muddy fields. The bad: Surprisingly, the tread on the bottom of the boots are nearly useless. You need to proceed with extreme caution when walking on wet flat surfaces (sidewalks, subway stairs). Secondly, the construction of the boot is very poor. After just two wears the "wood paneling" of the heel started fell off to reveal the cheap plastic beneath. I had hoped to get more than 2 wears out of a nearly pricey shoe.
