First of all, i just want to point out that I live in KY and we don't get a ton of winter weather (it's been 70 degrees in january) but my husband and i are traveling for a ski trip and i needed something that was cute and warm to wear while in Whistler village. I love that these are a taller boot and have a sneaker style! Fit: everyone is right, order a size up. For reference i am a solid 7.5 in just about every shoe. I have a pair of sorel joan of arctic wedges and they are a size 8 so i figured an 8 in these boot would work. Once i got them they were a little snug and decided to go ahead and order the 8.5 just to do a size comparison. I had to go a full size up in these boots. only reason for 4 star is the fact that the sizing is all over the place with sorel boots. Comfort and style: i haven't worn these in super cold weather but in 50 degrees they keep my feet ultra warm. they also look super cute with jeans or leggings. Over all i really like them and think they will be a great addition to my travel winter wardrobe! !! Thanks to backcountry for their seamless return process and their great prices!

Great Comfortable Boot That RUNS SMALL!
First of all Back Country is amazingly fast with shipping I had to order and return these and reorder bigger size and the entire process was painless very fast and easy. NOW for the boot ... Sorel sizing is very confusing. I am a size 10 normally in all other shoes and my measurement according to sorel size chart said to order a size 10.5 after debating about ordering a size 11 or 12 for hours I finally snuck into a dicks sporting goods to try one on unfortunately the biggest size they has was a 10 and I could barely get it on my foot and after 2 minutes I'm sure circulation was getting cut off ... so I decided to order a size 12 in these so I finally the pair of boots came today ... they fit my normally size 10 foot perfect the toe box is a little narrow but I'm sure with get roomy with a little wear. The boot is great I didnt have any color choice in a size 12 when I ordered but I got the Quarry/Black which is actually a grey boot ... the fur at the top is a great addition nice and soft and adds the perfect amount of style to the sneaker boot... the shoe is well made and very soft ... would recommend to everyone to spend the money and get a pair they are worth it... but beware please SIZE UP for me it was two whole sizes most review say a half a size or whole size. If you have a local Dicks or REI go try them on and then order them in the proper size FROM BACK COUNTRY ONLY because they are amazing and have great prices as well... hope you all enjoy your shoe/boots aka Sorel Explorer the way I am enjoying mine. This is only my second ever pair of Sorels but I'm in love

Yeah it definitely runs small. Should have looked at the reviews first.

A bit too small
Usually wear a 8 and ordered an 8.5 and these boots. They were still too small which I was surprised by. I would order a full size up in these boots just to be sure they fit with some normal-thick socks as well. Besides that, love these boots!

Love these boots!
I got the wine color last winter and they are great. Super comfortable, and when paired with warm socks, plenty warm for freezing temperatures. Get lots of compliments. I did size up a half size and I would recommend that!

Want to love....
I wanted a pair of winter boots that I could casually wear when the weather started getting colder. They are fashionable, light weight, and super comfortable. Fit: Based on other reviews, I went up a half a size and they fit perfectly, even with smart wool socks! Normally 6.5 and bought 7. Style & Comfort: I like the look of these boots! I viewed other sights because I wasn’t sure about the color from the pictures. I purchased Quarry/black and they are definitely grey, which is what I wanted! I love the fur trim! They are just as comfortable as they are fashionable. I wore these during a weekend trip to the Adirondacks. My feet felt great walking in them all day for mild temperatures. (40-50degree weather) Disappointment....I recently just wore these boots to a local festival that took place at night and the temperature was between 20-25 degrees. After being outside for 3hours, my toes were super cold!!

Amazing as always!
These boots are great! Definitely order a half size up. I'm a true 8.5 and ordered a 9 and they are perfect! These are very warm and have a great casual look for around town.

I tried these on before i ordered them and I’m glad i did. I usually wear an 8.5-9 and got a 9.5 in these. My other Sorel boots are a 9, but the 9 in these was way too small! Definitely order 1/2 to full size up. Besides the sizing being off, these boots are great!

Love these - order 1/2 to 1 size up
These are so comfortable and really cute!!! I normally wear size 7 in other brands boots but always 7.5 in all my Sorel's. I found the 8 the be the most comfortable and the ones I'm keeping :)

Cool looking boots
Very very very cool looking boots, just keep in mind that they run a little small and they are pretty narrow.

Norrow, order up 1/2 size up!
I am obsessed with these boots. When originally getting them, I found that they are much narrower than my other sorels. I tried both half and a full size up-- half was the best fit for me without major heel slips.

Thank you so much! This sizing info is very helpful. Thanks Lindsay!

Love these boots!
These boots are incredibly comfy, cute, and warm. I got them in the Rich Wine Ancient Fossil color, looking at them brings a smile to my face. I usually wear a size 7 and bought these in 7.5, which has been perfect with thicker socks. I look for opportunities to wear these boots and am sad when it's too warm to do so. I highly recommend them!

Comfy fun boots!
Normally wear size 7.5 but went to an 8 based on other reviews and I am happy I did. After walking around the house a couple of minutes they felt perfect on my feet! Warm and the rich wine is a perfect pop of color.

I bought these for an upcoming trip to Scotland/Ireland knowing that it rains frequently. I wanted something waterproof, but not clunky in case I hike in them. They are super cute, very comfortable and VERY warm, which is great because after living in a ski town for 20 years, my ski-boot feet toes get super cold. They run small, I went an entire size up and thicker socks fit perfectly in them. I can't recommend these enough.

Comfortable + warm
I bought these for my wife, who always has cold feet. She didn't want a big, clunky boot but something warm, stylish and comfortable. This was the perfect boot for her needs. She said her favorite thing, besides how comfortable they are, is that they don't show dirt. She thought the color would get really dirty after just a few uses but it has surprisingly stayed like new. She has used them walking around in snow and muck and they clean up really well. We highly recommend this boot!

Gift for the GF
Bought these for my girlfriend for christmas. Wanted to get her a snow boot that was top of the line but wasn't too flashy. These really met both. They're very casual and not one you have to lace up all the way to your knees and are very light. Waterproof and insulated. Perfect for any winter wherever you live. She loves them.

I have had my eyes on these for a while and decided to bite the bullet and get them after a bit. I could t find them in any stores so I bought them online in my usual size 9. They weren’t super tight, but just snug enough (with thin socks) to be uncomfortable. I will be exchanging them for a half size larger! Will update when I get the new ones.
