    My Work Snowboots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: size 7

    We've had tons of snow in Montana and as a realtor, I have to be out in the snow quite a bit. These boots are cute and functional. I always get complements and I am safe in the snow and ice. I was glad that someone mentioned they run small. I like to order big especially for winter socks. I usually order 8 in cowgirl boots so they can slip off my feet in case of getting stuck in a stirrup. I ordered a 7 in these and they fit perfect with winter socks. I would say my normal size is 7.5. Great boots!

    LOVE THESE!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 8

    I am so glad that I ordered a half size down! They definitely run large, but are a great fit when I ordered a half size smaller. They are great for snowshoeing, hiking, a bit stylish, running errands and staying warm outside. I absolutely LOVE the gray color that I purchased.

    Loves the boot (The perfect gift!)

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Size 8

    I gave this to my cousin as a Christmas gift! She love the boots she let me know that they are super warm and good looking boots, they go with most outfits!! They fit super well and true to size with most brands. The only downside she has is that the linings come out super easy when she is taking off the boot, she let me know that its not to hard to get them back in, it is just a super big inconvenience that the boots wont come off without the liners coming out, Still the boots are some of the nicest she has had and she love them!!!

    amazing boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large

    the use in days that is the freezing weather and keep my feet warm and comfortable

    A little bulky

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    These boots are a bit bulky, but I know they'll do well in the snow and cold. My biggest complaint is taking them off is extremely hard. The inside liner comes out almost every time.

    Warm, cozy, and kills it in the Alps!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    After researching sorel boot after sorel boot, fur..no fur... ankle, knee, you know the drill.. I finally found the perfect boot for my Swiss Alps adventure! I have worn these boots in the French and Swiss Alps, and all around Salt Lake City and have loved ALMOST everything about them. I always wear them with wool socks, and they are perfect for warmth. My only complaints are the clunkiness of the boot, and the piece behind the heel that tends to rub if you're wearing them for too long. I have worn them for two seasons, and they are still in prime condition, so definitely a durable boot!

    If you are looking for something to keep you warm in the lower temps, and don't care much about a little extra weight (not bad compared to some of the other boots out there) they are awesome! They are also incredibly comfortable and definitely stylish!

    I've recently taken them on a few snowshoeing expeditions (as shown in photo) and they've been wonderful.

    I wear a size 9 and got an 8.5, they are perfect.

    Warm, cozy, and kills it in the Alps!

    Painful, cold, unfinished, no insole

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    I had been eyeing these boots for about a year before I bought them. I was so excited to finally put them on when they arrived. And then my heart broke. Never in my life have I put on a single piece of footwear that caused me so much pain- jabbing me in the ankle and back of the calf. I would have put them right back in the box and sent them back, but unbeknowst to me, Chicago was due for a blizzard and I take public trans. My cat had peed on my only pair of winter boots and I'd thrown them away, but if they had been around still, I would have gladly smelled like cat pee rather than suffer the pain it took to walk half a mile to the bus stop. There is NO insole in these. NO arch support. I'm prone to plantar fascaitis and my feet were really hurting with a half mile walk. They just skipped the finishing in the manufacturing process where they put any sort of lining or arch support, and they throw a thick felt sock in there. Warm up to -25? I was walking around my house and my feet were colder with them on than they were with them off. It was 30 degrees out, and after a half mile walk which should have generated some heat, standing at the bus stop my feet were cold. Once I got on the bus my feet were even more cold. That rubber just sucks in the cold and that cheap polyester felt sock is no match. Never mind the fact that there's a big gap in the front of the sock, so there is no insulation from the front of your ankle to the top of the boot. Just the suede. I had bruises on my ankles the next day. As for waterproof, I took my dogs to the woods in them after putting on two pairs of thick socks on to protect my ankles, and my feet, the felt sock, and the inside of the actual boot were damp when I got home.
    Since I could not take them back, as I had worn them, I have figured out how to live with them. First thing, insole insert. Merino wool socks are needed to keep your feet warm and dry, and I only put the laces through the bottom loop, the middle loop, and the top loop. The loop between the bottom and the middle when laced is what bruised my ankles, and the loop between the middle and the top makes the back of the boot jab me in the back of the calf. And I tie them loosely. I also twisted and bent the leather at the back, and that helps the back of the calf jab. SO that's how I had to make this $170 pair of boots work for me while I ordered a pair of Keen boots, which what my last brand of winter boot was. They were only three years old and work daily all winter when my cat destroyed them, and I'd never felt a moment of cold, damp, or discomfort. Did I mention they were cheaper in price? Ill wear these Sorels when I take the dogs to the woods, with Merino wool socks and an insole insert. Thank God El Nino is in town this year and it's not going to get that cold. If my feet were this cold at 30 degrees, I'd hate to see how they felt during a good old Chicago polar vortex. Save your money in my opinion.

    OMG. Stick with your crappy Keens. I'm sure you are one of those people who complain about EVERYTHING!!!! Your fault for using them and then wanting to take them back. This review is based on your bad judgement, good luck finding a boot for plantar fascaitis.!! Not Sorel's fault!!!!!

    Dreams really do come true

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 7.0

    I have been wanting these boots for some time now.. I just had to wait for my old Sorel's to finally kick the bucket. Which honestly took years and they were at the time already a few years old.

    These do run big keep in mind. I am a 7.5 in casual shoes and an 8 in running shoes etc.. I purchased a 7 and they are Perfect.

    Now if you are looking for a sleek boot, this is not the one for you. This is going to be a bit more of a bulky boot. But That's needed when trudging about in snow and on Ice. I wear mine on snowmobiles, trekking through snow and around and about the Town of Alta where I tent to spend the bulk of my winters. These boots are super warm and keep my feet dry for hours!

    Highly recommend! Keep in mind these sell out fast so don't delay!

    Stylish Winter Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 6

    These boots are stylish yet durable for normal winter conditions. NOTE: They run large! I'm a size 7 in shoes and had to go down a whole size to a 6 (which now fit great) in the Joan of Arctic style. I previously owned the Tofino Sorel and those fit true to size. The Joan of Arctic boot performs much better in winter conditions than the Tofino boots do. The Joans have liners while the others do not. The Jones style also seem more waterproof as well. Plus, the Joans are more breathable. My feet would sweat terribly (not a normal problem for me) in the Tofinos and thus get really cold quickly. Haven't had that problem with the Joans. The one thing the Tofinos have on the Joans is that the boots have a little less volume to them and thus look a little sleeker on the foot/don't look quite as clunky as the Joans do.
    I haven't put these boots through the ringer of a whole winter yet to test how durable they ultimately are, but Sorels generally seem to be of high quality so I hope the Joan of Arctics last the 4+ years like my Tofinos did.

    Perfect for Alaskan weather!!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I am a military spouse so we never know if we will be in cold weather for very long or warm weather. We are now staying longer in Alaska and I have to admit my sorels are one of the best purchases I have made for the outdoors!! They have already been on a glacier and hikes!! Super cute and comfortable!! I will recommend these to all my friends out here!!!!!

    Perfect for Alaskan weather!!!

    Great product and service

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    This was my first purchase from Back Country. I was looking for this exact item and needed it quickly. They had it in stock and shipped it quickly. I have owned Sorel boots for over 30 years and know they make a great product. I was in the market for a very good cold weather boot for my daughter. These boots are both functional and stylish. We have gone hiking in temps down to -29 degrees and have snow shoed in them and she has been very comfortable.
    I am writing this review almost a year after my purchase as I am on Back Country site ordering another pair of hiking boots.
    I can't say enough about the quality of Sorel boot. This is not our first pair and it will not be our last.
    My daughter uses them almost every day during the winter going to school in Oswego ,NY where cold temps and snow are the norm.

    Lower profile/stylish +still v warm

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large

    I bought these for my fiancee ahead of yet another Northeast winter. Last year I finally got on the Sorel train and haven't looked back since. These boots are rated down to -25F by Sorel, so they are sure to be plenty warm for the temps and snow we'll encounter. And for deep winter snow boots, they are still fairly low profile and look really great. She went a half size down vs her normal shoe size and could have even gone a full size down. This is in line with the experience I've had with other Sorel boots, as well.

    Stay tuned for a more thorough review as winter develops.

    Love !! So far ....

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 8

    I am usually a 8 to 8.5 in women's shoes/boots, depending on the brand, I purchased an 8 in these and they fit perfect. (I used the sorel boot size chart. Measure your foot in cm, you will end up with the correct size ). I would say they run a little big compared to other brands, but only by about half a size, keep in mind, they are supposed to have a some wiggle room in toe box. They are comfortable right out of the box. I love the look of them, stylish and functional... Disclaimer: I have not had the chance to wear them in cold and snow yet (I live in Florida, but vacation in Colorado annually) I will be wearing these to Breckenridge in February. Brrr!
    I have worn them around the house a little and they seem to hold in the heat in very well. I can't wait to put them through the ringer :-) (btw: I got the color shale, Love !!!! Goes with everything !!!!) Also, over time I have placed several orders with Backcountry and have had great experiences so far. Fast shipping too!

    Worst Boot Ever

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large

    I purchased these b/c they had decent reviews and looked stylish yet functional. I (thankfully) never wore them out of the house. If I had I probably wouldn't have a heel left. There is a design flaw that forces the very stiff back part right above the rubber to bend in when you walk and aggressively rub your achilles. After encountering this while walking around my house I went looking to see if others had experienced it as well. Turns out, many have. I also felt like you have to waddle a bit. I sent them back & purchased the Adirondack, which is like walking on pillows.

    Love!

    • Fit: Runs small

    Was so excited when I was able to find this boo,t in this color (Shale). They were on back order for about two weeks before they shipped. I have wanted a pair of these boots for a couple years and now I have them. With that said I do feel they run a 1/2 size small. I would definitely order up in size especially if you plan on wearing a decent sock. I live in Montana so I am sure I will get plenty of wear out of these!

    Warm Fuzzy's!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large

    The boots will keep your feet nice and toasty and the grip will keep you from falling on your face. The waterproof upper keeps your feet from getting wet and the faux fur keeps you looking good.

    These do tend to run slightly large- I ordered a size up and they work perfectly.

    Cute but not functional

    • Fit: Runs large

    I love the look of the boots but when I put them on they are super bulky, heavy, and hard to walk in. I'm a fairly consistent size 7 and these were a little big on me so I would recommend going a half size down.

    These boots are exactly as shown, but what is not shown is how LARGE and BULKY they are. I was looking for a fashionable boot that would keep my feet warm, but I would give up one of my two requirements rather than wear these. They remind me of men's bogs boots. I am returning them for the Tofino and going a size smaller.

    Warm with Style!

      I have been looking for some warm snow boots that didn't look like nerdy MOON boots. My Sorel Joan of Artic boots are the best boots i have owned to date. My feet have yet to get cold. I would recommend them to Eskimos and Polar bears. I give 5 gold stars!!!!!

      Super Cute but Runs Small

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small

      I absolutely loved the way these boots looked and I was looking so forward to wearing them. Unfortunately they run pretty small; and there are no half sizes. I am usually a 7-7.5. I got them in a 7 and they were so tight, I was curling my toes in. Unfortunately I couldn't get the bigger size because they were sold out. Hopefully I will be able to find them in my size because I really do like them!

      I just ordered boots in nori- daughter wants this in shale instead size 7, can I change the color?

      Kind of hard to tell in pictures but is the shale color brown or grey??

      how many grams of insulation and are they completely waterproof??

      Best Answer

      Seam-sealed waterproof construction.

      UPPER: Waterproof full-grain and suede.

      INSULATION: Removable 6mm recycled felt InnerBoot with faux fur snow cuff.

      MIDSOLE: 25mm bonded felt frost plug.

      OUTSOLE: Handcrafted waterproof vulcanized rubber shell with herringbone outsole.



      SOREL rated: -25° fahrenheit / -32° Celsius

      Shaft Height: 12 in / 30.5 cm

      Weight: 31 oz / 874 g



      Short answer: these are insulated with a 6mm thick felt liner (not down or synthetic insulation).

      The materials are waterproof and seams are sealed - Sorel guarantees that these are indeed waterproof.

      Are these boots heavy?

      Are these the warmest winter boot available?

      Hey Donna,



      Sorel rates these boots to -25° Fahrenheit (-32° Celsius) and they weigh 31 oz (874 grams) each. If you are looking for something warmer check out the Baffin Impact Winter Boot (Item # BAF0005) which is rated to -148F (-100C). Feel free to contact me directly with any more questions about Winter Boots or if you are interested in setting up an order.

      I need these in the taffy color size 7......help!

      Hey Jennifer,



      Does not look like we have any of the Taffy colored Sorel Joan of Arctic Boots on order from Sorel. This means we will not have them in stock for a while if at all. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any more questions or would like help finding something similar.

      Hi I was wondering if there was any new updates on these boots yet? Are you going to be getting more in soon?

      I ordered the women's caribou in December and sent them back because they were the wrong size. Now I have a credit and have been waiting for sorel snow boots to come back into stock. I was told within a month but still nothing. Will you be getting any more??

      I would like to be contacted when the black is back in stock pls...thank you =)

      I've already ordered them from Urban Outfitters...to much back & forth with Backcounrty!!! They are in-stock they aren't...they are but they really aren't. And I've been told so many different "stories" from Online customer service agents. I might have liked making a purchase from this site ...BUT after all the bologna & nonsense...it's NOT worth my time & definitely NOT my money!!!

      Is it possible to be notified when these are available in a black, size 9?

      i would love to be notified if these are restocked. I am interested in the black color, size 10. I have looked everywhere and cannot find them in my size!

      Can I get an email when the boots are back in stock? I am looking for a size 7.5, preferably in Shale, but I would take Black or Brown as well. Thanks!

      Can someone send me an email when a size 7 tobacco brown is in stock? Everytime I look back a different size is available.

      Can you send me an email when you get these in in black or tobacco?

      Is there a backorder coming in soon for size 7? I am interested in buying one.

      How do I get in on the backorder? Do I just check the website daily? Or pre-order? I am interested in purchasing a size 9 either black or tobacco/sudan brown Joan of Arctic boots.

      Will any size 8 tobacco/sudan brown boots be on that backorder shipment? And if yes, do you think it will be before the 23rd? So I can use that 20% off code. :) Thanks!
