My feet are always cold, but not in these boots. The first boots I have owned where my feet don't even get a little bit cold even up in the cold mountains.
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought these for working and playing in the snow. Today it was 15 degrees out and my feet were toasty warm. They are light enough to walk in for a while and are a perfect companion for snowshoes.

I thought these boots were very comfortable for walking in the snow, but not good for cold weather. They are rated to -25 deg, but in 25 deg weather my toes turned frozen in only a few min time. I love sorel boots, but these are not good for very cold weather.
I have a pair of monstrous Sorel boots that i purchased in 1993 and they are still fabulous, but a little too cumbersome. SO i purchased these cute boots because I trust Sorel to produce quality products and i liked them.
Traction is great!
Warm and toasty -only if you are in motion. NOT good when standing for long periods of time outdoors.
FIT..... Really peculiar. I can not get the boot tight enough to provide any support around my ankle. I've worn mountain socks layered and still, the boots can not be fastened tightly.
I got these boots to wear in Jackson Hole. I was concerned about sizing, however these boots fit true to size. They are also very stylish and cute; not the bulky, oversized winter boots that I am used to seeing. I would recommend these.
I got these boots for a ski trip to Colorado last Christimas. The boots look really cute and are very comfortable, but, after a while outside in the snow, my feet started to frozen. They are waterproof, but they get cold in the inside, so, not recommended for a long time in the snow at lower temperatures.
This boots look great if I could only get my high arch into them. Without a zipper or laced closing there is no way I can get my foot into them. They will be returned...high arches beware!
Do these boots run wide? I have a very narrow foot and small ankle so a lot of snow boots look like clown shoes on me.
How heavy are these boots
2 pounds for the pair.
are these boots good to wear with snowshoes?
Great boots. I ordered them for a ski trip to CO and wore them any time I wasn't in a ski boot. My feet stayed warm and dry on a 5 hour hike in the snow in 20-degree weather, too. The boots are super comfy for walking and look really stylish as well. I'm so glad I got them and plan to use them for years to come.
I love these boots! Finally a pair of boots that keep my feet dry and cozy warm.
I thought the boots were wonderful. They definately looked warm & felt comfty -- but was unable to use them as I found THEY DO run large, at least for me.
I wear an 8 in all my shoes -- but I read various things about them. When placed order I questioned this & was told they were true to size.
I had to return them as they were too big. Even with thick socks & even 2 pair of socks & even w/stockings w/2 pair socks they were still too big.
I didn't take the risk of going out in the snow w/them or down the hill or anything as I didn't want to get hurt w/them being bulky --
BUT other than that I thought they were ok.
Have to admit the return service area is wonderful. Had a hard time & had to use the phone service & the person was WONDERFUL!! I wasn't able to print out the 6.99 return label & had to ship it via USPS which cost me more -- but Now I am just waiting for them to receive them & get my refund -- which they said should have no problem in getting my cc refunded correctly.
Thanks for letting me be honest with you & everyone!
I bought these boots based on all of the positive feedback on the website (I had never seen them in person or tried on). They are REALLY cute and are exactly what I was looking for. The are true to size. I would agree w/ the one comment on lacing up - they don't cinch tightly, so feel a little loose. I tend to tuck my jeans into them, so won't be a huge problem, but just an fyi.
Based on all of the (mostly very positive) reviews on this site, and the excellent price, I bought these boots without ever seeing them in real life and never having tried them on. I got them in Black, Size 8.
Things I like:
- very durable
- black color hides the dirt
- fit is true to size
Things I don't love:
- my ankles are a bit narrow, but that's never been a problem with boots before. The laces on these boots don't tie up tight enough to get a snug fit at the ankle, so it feels a bit like I'm wearing galoshes when I walk with them
- no padding on the inside of the foot area, so the top of your toes are rubbing up against hard rubber
- I didn't really think of it when I looked at pictures on the website but I often wear these with black pants, so they end up looking a bit like Santa Claus boots...not such a great look for a female professional :)
I love these boots! I love the green color - kind of like an olive green. They are super warm and comfortable and USEFUL. I've worn them a bunch in the snow and they have great traction.
This boot fits perfectly, (true to size) is warm, looks great, and is very versatile. It was a great purchase, and I absolutely love them. They are easy to put on and take off, even with the laces tied.
Absolutely love my new Sorels. Finally a boot that keeps my feet from freezing!
I bought these and am now really looking forward to some time in the snow with my kids! Super comfy, seem true to size. I did order another pair of Cumberlands where one shoe was looser than the other, but this pair is fine on both feet. I'm guessing this was a fluke in the manufacturing. Seem warm and very comfy, can't comment on how warm/dry they are in feet of snow, but will do so after our trip.
Would these boots be suitable for all day mountain hiking? Supportive? Blisters? Do your feet get cold near the rubber?
You could hike in these, but they are not technical boots (i.e., they are not mountaineering boots) and should be confined to winter walking and light hiking. I have gone winter backpacking in a North Face equivalent boot and it was fine--but the terrain was not steep. I can't speak to how supportive they are. Footbed support is easily achievable by replacing the footbed with a high-quality aftermarket insole like Superfeet or Sole. (You actually bake Sole footbeds in your oven so that you can mold them to your feet; Superfeet mold themselves to your foot over a few days without baking them. Both are excellent.) Blisters shouldn't be an issue if your boots are properly sized to your foot and you are wearing the appropriate sock/sock layering system. I would be very surprised if Sorel didn't account for rubber's ability to transfer cold and therefore ensured it wouldn't be an issue. Hope this helps.
I would only use these on a very gentle hike. I find the soles don't grip very well on slippery surfaces and, unless you're wearing very thick socks, the fit of the boot is a bit roomy in the toe and ankle area for serious hiking.
