I love these boots, they warm, stylish, keep your feet dry and not to too heavy (if you have never worn snow boots scratch that because they will feel crazy stiff and heavy but not for long). My only complaint is that they are a bit hard to get off without unlacing all the way, which is no biggie.
I bought these for my fiancee for the winter and she loved them. No complaints in warmth or appearance. She did say that they felt like they were about a 1/2 size larger than her normal shoes. Have barely noticed any wear on them after a winter's worth of use.
I just got these for an outdoor beer festival in Michigan and wore them for about 10 hours the day after I bought them. This was probably not the smartest move because they TORE UP the back of my ankles. I'm hopeful they will loosen up as I wear them, and again my issue could be that I wore them for so long for the very first time. Besides that, they fit great and absolutely do the job. I never once had cold feet, a first for me in boots. They are also fairly heavy, but as I got used to it that's one thing I liked about them. I usually wear an 8 and these fit pretty true; I do have some room in them, but with thick socks on I hardly notice.
I bought these boots in brown and didn't wear them right after I bought them because they were a little stiff. Once I started wearing them, they loosened up and became my favorite boots to wear. Sorel makes the best boots because they stay so dry in the deepest of snow. I am an 8.5 in basically every brand including this one.
I purchased these for my 17 year old daughter in the red color (Taffy). The biggest challenge is that these do not come in half sizes. You have to decide on to big or snug if your in the middle. In my experience with Sorel buy the smaller size if it is a comfortable snug, the liner will pack out.
I got these boots last season and so far they have been great. I am now living in the NorthEast and they are great for the everyday walking around with a few inches of snow. They are wide for me, but it just wear thicker socks.
I have spent forever trying to find trendy, comfortable, and practical winter boots...and these are just that!! I can not wait for the next cold day to put on my Sorrel's and romp in the snow. -True to Size-Warm and Fuzzy-Attract Compliments
"Great performance, not suuuuper functional"
I got these boots last year and I love them! They are super warm and waterproof. However, they are a little more fashion than function. They are only wearable over tighter clothing because of the fur at the top so although it makes them really cute, it really limits when and with what I can wear them :) Bottom line: If you are ok with being a little limited by wardrobe coordination, GO FOR IT! They rock!
