I purchased this boot for my wife, who always complains of cold feet. I had a similar pair of boots a few years ago, and loved them... my feet were always toasty, and I thought for sure that this pair of boots would be great for her as well. Unfortunately, she thinks that these boots look too large on her feet, so I am going to return them. Next time I think that I'll just get her a pair of flip flops. But I would recommend these boots to any normal human being...

I love these boots but its slippery sole made it impossible for me to wear in the city. Do not wear these boots if you will be walking on slippery surfaces. I almost fell a number of times when walking in subway stations. Then I fell down a flight of stairs and broke my tailbone. All because the sole has no traction on wet surfaces. They are great for treking outside but that is it. Inside it feels like you are trying to walk on oil. That iss too bad because the rest of the boot is great.

These are classic boots and I loved the look. However, I ordered in my normal size and they were way too large. Interestingly, the other pair of Sorel boots I ordered in the same size fit fine. I am returning these.

I really wanted to keep these boots but I liked The Columbia boots that i ordered at the same time a little better. They were much lighter weight and easier to walk in. These boots seem incredibly warm and tough and plenty wide for a wide foot. I would recommend them for anyone with wide feet. They do seem to run a little big...I wear a 10 and the 10 had plenty of room for thick socks.

Sizing can be tricky, but definitely worth taking the time to figure it out. I'm super grateful for Zappos and their awesome exchange policy!! I typically wear a size 8 in running shoes (Asics, Brooks). After trying 7-8, I ended up with a 7.5 in these and am happy! The 7 actually seemed to fit in the length, but the toe box felt very snug (too snug). They are big boots (as many reviews state), and they are a bit heavy - but there was no break-in time and I find them very comfortable to wear. My feet are warm, even with thin socks. They have better tread that the Joan of Arctic (which I was debating between), and aren't as stiff. I'm very pleased with my purchase!

These boots are incredibly warm and hardy. However, I seriously dispute their hardiness. I bought them in Nov 2015. Our NJ winters are cold but I certainly do not need to wear them every day, particularly not these past 2 winters when we have had perhaps 5 days' total of freezing temps. Imagine my disdain when this winter, in December 2017, I pulled out my boots to find the rubber is perished and cracked, right along where the boot bends. They leak, I get wet feet in the snow and I am cold. Sorel deny responsibility as they are beyond the 1 year warranty. I will not be buying them again. A big expense that I expected to carry over several more years. Now I have to re-invest. Overall, great boot but I expected it to last more than 2 years....

I originally bought these as the "classic" snow boots. My dad always had a pair growing up, so why should I stray from that path. Everyone knows dad is always right. The are stylish as all hell, but that's about where my likeability of these boots ends. They are so freakin heavy they are pretty much useless for anything besides sitting around. The only thing I use them for now is snowmobiling. I tried to wear these a 12 hour day shoveling and I was exhausted afterwords, not my arms or back from the snow, but just my legs from lugging these iron boots around. When I go work in the snow now, I just wear my regular work boots, I don't care if they get wet. My waterlogged Timberlands are half the weight of these things dry. Also, the giant hooks for the laces is a plain dumb design. They are impossible to get as tight as you need them, so unless you have a nice pair of super elastic socks, you can expect your socks to be bunched up around your ankle a half hour after walking around in these things. Would NEVER buy these again or recommend that anyone I know buy these.

These are heavy and clunky. The bulk made them hard to walk around. If you want them as a snow boot, they’re probably ok. But if you need more functionality for running errands, then not good.

I was so looking forward to these boots. Let me just say they are very big and bulky. I honestly thought they accidentally sent me Men's boots when I pulled them out of the box. I ordered an 8 1/2 based on reviews. I am an 8 in everything. They were too big I believe. It was hard to tell because they are huge overall, and super heavy for me. I like the look.. just wish they were streamlined a bit I guess. If you are in SERIOUS weather, I am sure they would be super warm.

Runs huge. I am a true size 8 but needed a 7 even when I added socks. Haven't used for winter yet but planning a move up north and these were highly rated.

These ran huge on me. They also felt like they would be slippery on icy sidewalks. These might be cute for apres ski, but not really practical for daily use. I returned them.

Very comfortable and warm! I wore these in very snowy and cold conditions (-30 F) and my feet stayed nice and toasty. Overall, I found that they were generously sized. In my usual size they were a bit too wide with a thinner sock but worked well with a thick wool sock.

Purchased for a ski trip. These boots were absolutely huge. Wide & Clunky. Cute in the photos, but honestly wider than my Ugg boots in person. If you live in the mountains, these would work for you. If you need a cold weather/rain boot, this is not your boot. Returned them for Sorel Winter Fancy Lace II & they were a much better fit!

I love the style of this boot but ultimately returned them due to the fact that they were "stiff" which make it hard to walk in them. They would probably loosen up with wear but I didn't want to take that chance.

It's s till giant, way too big for the size it states. Buyer beware, this is a great boot, but the box is marked in both EU and USA sizing, and they don't align. according the the EU size my size 8 was a euro 39/9.

I love these boots. They are so comfy, warm and have great traction. We've had an unprecedented amount of snow in my town this year and these are fabulous for the grocery and shoveling the walk!

I bought these boots for an ice fishing trip in the UP and boy did they perform like a champ! I had to walk through a foot of snow to get to the lake, then once on the ice, there was about 4 inches of snow on top of 4 inches of slush. I mention this because for 4 hours, I was standing in ice cold slush on top of a frozen lake. And where my feet got a little chilly towards the end with one pair of socks, they did not really get uncomfortably cold. They stayed nice and toasty. They were waterproof so nothing got in. MY socks never got a bit of anything on them. Worth every penny. If you think you'll be in snow or told temps, these are the perfect go-to boot. I will warn, they are a bit heavy. But you get used to them on your feet.

I've worn Sorels for years and needed a new pair. This pair runs a full size larger than my old Joan of Arcs. My son has similar ones to these and I wonder if they are actually unisex sized. These are heavy - but so were the Joan of Arcs. I wanted something less fussy and more rugged for the MN winter which as of late is more icy than snowy. The grips on the bottom work well when slippery. I ordered a second, different pair that are less bulky than this style for everyday running around.

These are the real deal. I need something seriously warm and waterproof to wear for outdoor activities in northern Finland (that's the Arctic Circle, people!) so the -40 temp rating is an absolute necessity for me. I wore these around the house with the idea that I would need to break them in over a period of weeks in order to be able to travel comfortably in them. However, these are not stiff like other serious snow boots so I won't need a long break-in period. The thick sole actually flexes normally. I have wide feet and these are wide enough. They don't slip off my heels so although they look big due to the hearty materials and insulation, they are true to size. These are as warm as advertised. The best part is they are easy to get in and out of and easy to lace. I think they look cute and classic in an extra from the movie Fargo way, but this is definitely a heavy snowboot, not a fashion look. Sorel makes lower-profile and more feminine duck-style boots and if you look at them side by side you can tell these have a much chunkier profile. These might be overkill for this mild NYC winter but they're going to be perfect for Finland. the grey is really nice and the price is fair for such a durable-seeming boot.

Got these for my mother for her birthday. She is usually an 8 in any other shoe, because she has wide feet. I had to exchange them for a half a size smaller, they still look a little big but not as big as the 8! Comfortable, warm and a great boot overall. The exchange process couldnt have been easier. Thank you Zappos for always having amazing and effortless customer service!

Great item--short life! In only three years, the rubber top disintegrated! Worthless! If there's something I did wrong, or a conditioner for the rubber, let me know, I'd gladly get another pair. My budget doesn't allow me to spend $150 on snow boots every few years. Am I being unreasonable?
