I bought these boots just before the first polar vortex of 2014, and I don't know how I would have survived the winter without them! Warm, waterproof, durable... and attractive. They are worth every penny. I would recommend them to anyone looking into winter boots as they are the warmest and best ones I have ever owned.

Hi ladies! Loved the look of these boots so much but was scared of negative reviews and price - so I did a little research. According to many skiing and outdoor activity websites, winter boots are supposed to fit loose. In order for feet to stay warm, snow boots should not fit snug like a shoe. So, the felt lining in these should be loose enough for a thick pair of socks and still not be snug. When people order a size down it contributes to their cold feet and complaints of back of boot digging into their heels. Order your real size and don't expect them to fit like a fashion boot. By the way, these boots do run in half-sizes. I own Joan of Arctics in 9.5 The second important thing I learned is that cotton socks make your feet colder! You are better off wearing bare feet in boots rather than cotton (due to the way they retain moisture). Invest in a heavyweight pair of wool socks (which wick away moisture) and never layer your socks. Layering makes your feet colder due to breathability issues. Finally, keep your core warm because when you body is cold, blood leaves the extremities. You do want to layer your body. Thermal underwear or a mesh base layer, a loose fleece layer over that, etc. I received my boots and followed these techniques with great results. My boots are very comfortable. It is a blustery 10 today and I spent many hours outside to test the product. If I was just standing there, my feet were warm! Unless I was just standing there on packed snow for a while. On packed snow or ice, you'll need to move around every once in a while to keep blood circulating. Warmed right back up! Took dog for a walk and my feet felt great. Only boot I've heard of that you can literally just stand there without movement on packed snow or ice without feet getting cold are those "mickey mouse boots." They are not cute but if extreme warmth is your ultimate goal, these are what they wear in Alaska, or what serious ice fishers put on, etc. Hope this helped! By the way...some things I forgot to mention. It is also very important to have warm feet before putting boots on (any boots). So if you have cold feet from walking around on hardwood floor, etc, they are going to stay cold outside. This is particularly true with well-insulated boots/socks. They will actually insulate cold in. And never "clench" your toes in boots. Wiggle them once in a while to stimulate blood circulation, but clenching them up has the opposite effect. It can be hard to find heavyweight wool socks for women in stores (I have only found mid or lightweight wool in stores). I found great heavyweight wool socks for women by Carhartt online. Work great paired with boots! We have had -20 degree weather where I live this winter. & mind you, I am not outside long during this temperature, but when I am for a quick shovel, my feet are the warmest part of me in my Sorels.

Best investment I've made in a long time. A must have for cold, wet, long, dismal winters. Super cute with leg warmers and leggings.

Great winter boots. My feet get cold in them sometimes if I am outside for a long period of time (especially if I haven't been diligent about drying the insoles), which is disappointing. They hit just below the knee on me which is great because I live in Jackson Hole and there is a lot of snow in the winter. It goes without saying that I love the way they look - they aren't quite nice enough to wear at the office but they are a great all round winter boot. The only thing I wish I would have realized is that the straps on the sides, which hold the lining in and on, is not supposed to be pulled off on both sides so now they are just loose. I bought them a little bit big and they are definitely roomy. I would go for my regular size next time.

These boots are warm, and functional and enormous. You could never put enough pairs of socks on to fill up this toe box/entire footbed. I read about a hundred reviews and ordered a 1/2 size up from my normal size to accommodate socks. I was absolutely swimming in them, not to mention each boot weighs about 5 pounds. Sent those back for a 1/2 size smaller than I actually wear in street shoes, and still enormous. I have narrowish feet, and skinny/ normal calves. I had the laces as tight as they would go, and still I was swimming. They are stylish and warm, that is no question. I ultimately ordered the Tivoli Tall and Tofino Tall - both of which are overall a much less clunky, heavy boot. Still rated for cold temps, but not gratuitous on the sizing like the Joan's.
