Comfy but small and narrow

These boots are very comfortable and warm, beautiful design. As I read, the laces don't stay tight for too long. I usually buy boots 8.5 (which is already half size up). I measured my feet, compared to my other boot sizes and still found them too tight in lenght and too narrow, my toes were uncomfortable. As I'm from Brazil and got them during a short visit to the US, I didn't have enough time to return them and get a half size up to see if would fit. I tried smoothing it up, taking to a place to loose a bit, but nothing worked. My toes still feel strangled. I also noticed some sort of defect on the left foot (photo) So, I recommend you check your size and if your feet is wide/narrow, your toes are too long or not. Would love to buy a new pair, but that will have to wait for another US visit.

Not what I expected

I actually returned them. Run small. I was so excited for these shoes to arrive and was disappointed. I ordered my true size and should probably have ordered a full size bigger.

Worth every penny!

These boots are so comfortable, warm, and cozy! And they have great traction, which is a must during a Minnesota winter. I love them so much that I ordered a pair of fall ankle boots to try. I did size up for these, which was the right call (normally an 8, bought a 9) because that is the most comfortable with thick winter socks.

Arch support

Love the way shoe looks. Disappointed that there was no arch support.

Sizing is completely unknown

I bought a full size up based on reviews and I should NOT have done that. They're too big! I'm usually a 7.5, bought an 8.5 and so sad. I'm pretty disappointed that they don't fit right. I love the look and bought based on a friend's recommendation. Wish I could exchange for a better size. I don't know what to do with them at this point

Womens Sorel Explorer II Joan boot

I ordered a size up which was recommended. Definitely a narrow forefoot winter boot. I have an average/B width foot) Now I feel I have excess room in the toes. Laces come untied easily but overall, a comfortable boot once I get over how large they look on my feet. I still prefer my easy slip on rubber low riders after getting out of my ski boots.

Great Pair of cute and functional boots

Great quality! So cute and one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own. I am normally an 8.5 but I ordered a 9 and they fit perfectly

Way too narrow and not to US sizes

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 9"

I typically wear a 7.5 shoe and I ordered a half size up because of the reviews but when I got the boot, it was still too small and very very narrow. For the 7.5 boot, I would say it would fit a foot more for a small fit at 6-6.5 size foot to be correct for the next buyer. Really disappointed in this boot.

Best purchase ever

I’m literally writing this review in the middle of my second winter wearing them and I absolutely LOVE THEM. They are the best all-around winter shoe I’ve ever owned. They are warm, comfy and keep my feet dry while I’m walking the dog in the rain. I’ve also used them for light hiking, they are actually more comfortable than my running shoes. I’m here to buy another pair, just because I never want to be without them. Please keep making them!

Great winter boots

These cozy boots felt more like sneakers right out of the box! They are stylish, comfortable and WARM. My only (small) issue is that the faux fur at the top leaves "fuzzies" on my socks and pants. I expect that this will decrease over time. As is true for all my Sorel footwear, these boots are high quality, high performance and super comfy at the same time. The color seems more of gray than green in person but it doesn't really matter to me. Love them!
