The Sorel Women's Joan of Arctic Boot is a casual boot that can handle deep winter snow. Trudge your way to work without looking like the abominable snowman and instead don the full-grain leather and suede. Waterproof throughout, the boot keeps your feet dry as well as your pant legs. The 6mm recycled felt inner boot with faux fur snow cuff warms while adding a classy touch around your leg. The vulcanized rubber shell completes in a herringbone outsole for traction on ice and snow, whatever the city streets have to offer.
I LOVE these boots! They're super cute and at the same time they keep my feet warm and away from the snow. The mid-calf height of the boot combined with the sewn-in tongue prevents snow from getting inside, which means I can walk in deep drifts without having to worry. Moosejaw didn't waste any time sending them to me, I ordered them with regular shipping and got them only a couple days later! I've gotten so many compliments on these boots, once these wear out I'll probably be getting another pair. The best part about these is how I can wear them and be stylish as well as practical (often times it's hard to find that combo). Great buy, no regrets at all.
This boots are AMAZING. First pair of boots that i have found that keeps my feet warm! It takes a minute to get used to the fit but once you do you won't want to take them off. I wear them everywhere and with everything. If you are really thinking about buying a pair, stop thinking and start buying!
I got these with snowshoeing in mind, but they double as good everyday winter boots. Their construction seems sturdy but not clunky. I would say they run true-to-size. I bought a size 8 and they're loose enough for some thick socks but not so loose that I feel like I'm going to step out of them when walking. I haven't worn them all day long yet, so time will tell if they are too heavy for long-term use.
"Better than I thought they would be! (And I had pretty high expectations)"
First pair of tall winter boots. Recently moved from Florida to Virginia; no need for them before. I read a LOT of reviews on so many boots before choosing these and I am very confident I made the right choice! Super comfortable, love the looks and most of all, love the warmth. Moosejaw got them to me super quick too, just in time to break them in with the recent cold front. Love them!
Purchased the Sorel Joan of Arctic boots in Shale and so happy I did! First pair of Sorel's and will not be the last. I would say the sizing ran true to size. I am a size 9 and if I'm not a 9 I have to size up rather than down. The toe box gives just enough room for a nice pair of wool socks and the shaft of the boot fits snugly and comfortably. Would highly suggest owning a pair of these beauts....can NOT wait for snow!
"Perfect for watching hockey at the rink!"
These are some serious winter boots! I haven't worn them outside yet, considering it's August, but can't wait to wear them to all of my son's hockey games. Winter in the Midwest can be horrible, so I hope these boots will live up to the name "Arctic"!
These are probably a good choice for you if you want something stylish or if you want to keep your feet reasonably warm. However, I found that the construction of these boots was inferior to that of the "premium" joan of arctic boots. This can be seen looking at the boots side by side (I got both pairs because I'm me), but is most noticeable when it comes to usage. These boots age and wear much more quickly. Overall, I would suggest the premium boots over these.
