I love these boots. They are confortable and very warm. They don't look or feel huge at all. The only thing is to make sure you lace the ankle tight to avoid the heel sliding up and down and also not having it too tight on the calves so as to cut off circulation. I am working on the balance...

As cute as these boots may be, I'm going to have to return them for two reasons: one being that one of the top snap broke off the very first time I tried unsnapping the fur lining (guess they're not as high quality as I thought), and secondly, the leather upper scratches way too easily, even just lightly with fingernail accidentally while putting them on and tying the laces, so I can imagine after wearing just a few times that the leather would be all scratched up and would look horrible, and definitely wouldn't look like they're worth the price. They were also very stiff through the ankle but would probably take some time to break them in, but the soles were comfortable and the fur was really cute, and they do leave enough room for thick socks. Very disappointed in the damage and having to return them. I won't be getting these again because of the leather getting scratched too easily. My search for snow boots continues.

I wore these boots during Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast, and they stood up to their name. Not only did they keep my feet super warm, but they are extremly stylish.

I wore these boots during Hurricane Sandy outside, and my feet felt so warm and secured. I would recommend these boots to anyone. Not only did they feel great, but they looked great as well.

This boot gets an A+ for style, but could use some more support in the sole, it's rather bendy. The leather portion is quite a bit stiffer, I'm still breaking in the ankle area so it doesn't push on my achilles area so much. I feel like I need to walk around with my knees bent, they are angled a bit forward like ski boots. The leather is super nice though, I think they'll break in. They look a little wide on the foot, but I think that's just because of the thick liner. Very warm. They only run slightly big, so I wouldn't size down a full size, maybe 1/2 or even stay TTS.

Cute boots but very stiff. Also a little disappointed that I paid this much and the first time I put them on, the snap on the side ripped off.

Boots have a nice patina, but run very small. One boot had a top seam that rubbed. I'm returning for another size with the hope that I can keep them.

I've had a very hard time finding stylish yet warm winter boots. These boots wouldn't be called stylish but they are black and thus a smidgen chic. With few exceptions I wear a women's size 11 in medium width. While these boots fit in length, they really felt as if I was trying on a men's boot. There was a lot of wiggle room in the width and particularly the heel. With heavy socks the width was okay but my heel moved up with every step. I am returning these as my quest continues.

These are great looking boots, but I am a 6.5 and neither the 6 nor the 7 fit me. My toes brush the front of the 6 and my foot was swimming in the 7. I truly needed the half size. Furthermore, both the 6 and 7 were too wide, making me uncertain at first whether the 6 was actually too small because there was still so much room in the boot. Ultimately I had to return both pairs and sadly, am again on the hunt for the perfect winter boot.

I did not like these at all. I wear an 8½ and when these arrived they were huge and clunky. They are extremely wide from side to side. They also seem to run big - had I liked them I would have had to go town to at least an 8. There was zero flexibility in the sole which made walking around totally awkward. I did like that they were all black. I was looking for a cute fluff at the top style of boot and this looked like what I wanted but in person it was maybe a bit too much. I guess I prefer my boot fluff toned down a bit. I returned these and ordered the Kamik Snowvixen instead and I am much happier with that boot. There are many similarities but they are much more comfortable and functional. I tested them in Mammoth during a colder snap with lots of snow and they got the job done.

Same thing as the other reviewer - top rivet popped off within seconds of me having these boots. Returning & will never buy Sorels again!
