Rated5out of5bykristinmdfromLove these boots!Even though these boots are a little heavy/bulky, they are so comfortable and I LOVE wearing them. They're warm, waterproof, and super cute - even when just out-and-about in rainy/cold weather.

Rated4out of5byCurlzfromWarm bootThese boots are cute, warm and waterproof. But these boots are not very comfortable for walking because they are so bulky and don't conform to your feet. Definately don't plan on using these for walking/hiking long distances. They are great for slipping on and heading out into the snow though!

Rated5out of5byTrixie-KhanfromSo Worth the MoneyGreat looking boot. Great fit - fun to wear out & about, but also utilitarian for snowshoeing and other winter activities.

Rated4out of5byOhio runner girlfromCute, warm, snow boot!After reading several reviews I was torn on what size to order. I'm a 7.5, and I ordered the 8 - they were huge, so I exchanged for 7, and that was a much better fit! If in doubt, order a size down! At first the boots seemed stiff, and not super comfortable to walk around in, but after just wearing 3 times, they've loosened up a ton, and and are much more comfortable! Give them a chance! I will say they are a bit bulky, but really I'm going to wear them for snow boots primarily, so I'm ok with that. And, they are warm! My feet stay about the temp of an icicle, so I have a hard time keeping my feet warm, and these were great as far as warmth goes! Plus, they're super cute!

Rated3out of5byStephNYfromCute but not amazingI, too, did a lot of research before committing to buying these boots. A lot of what people have said is true. First, the sizing:
I usually wear a 7 or 7.5. I originally ordered a 7 but it was almost impossible to pull the boot on and off -especially when wearing warm wool socks. The ankle was VERY tight. The 8 is a bit large, but I figured it would be better to be able to get the boot on and off when I'm just running out to take the dog out. (Note to Sorel: Please make half sizes!). With this larger size, I have to add an insole and wear the thickest socks - which does have the added benefit of making the boots a bit more comfortable (there isn't much padding on the sole of the boot).
As someone else noted, the bend of the boot is a bit high relative to the ankle. It makes walking a bit awkward and irritating to the back of the leg. (This, too, is helped with thick tall socks).
I do get lots of compliments on the boots and, overall, I'm glad I got them. They keep my feet dry on wet and snowy days. I wouldn't go hiking or spend all day in them, but they're fine for walking the dog, shoveling the sidewalk, or just running errands.

Rated5out of5byLeslie537fromToasty toes!Brought these boots to Tahoe for a week, and they pleasantly surprised me!
Wore them after snowboarding, to the lake for family pictures, snowball fights, sledding and to and from the store. Never felt cold at all! Took a while to figure out if I want them super tight vs laced loose. Now that I've figured that out, I LOVE them! Even wore them without socks while sledding! Best winter boots ever!
Oh, sizing. I've always been a true size ten. Bought one size smaller. Sorels notoriously run big. My dad had to go down a size in his Sorels too.
