Awesome Boots I got these boots in a size larger than my usual size as I was always taught to do with winter boots for Christmas. I have to say I was a little weary about these boots after reading so many negative reviews on them, where people were complaining about rubbing and blisters. I have worn my boots everyday since Christmas and they are the best boots I have ever owned. They keep my feet dry and warm, and I have not experienced any discomfort with them at all.The only thing I have noticed is that between the liner and the boot itself they do get a little damp from the warmth of your foot and the cold on the outside of the boot. I just check them when I have worn them for a long period of time and just pull the liner out a bit so they can dry. They are never wet on the inside though.All in all Awesome boots. January 30, 2014
Stylish and Comfy I bought these boots before I read all the reviews.Because there were so many negative comments, I decided to wear mine inside our home for awhile, so I could return them if necessary.These boots are perfect for me...really cute too (I got the purple and green). Great value and I have worn them outside and for long walks with comfort and warmth.Clearly, they are not right for very foot, so I recommend wearing them inside your home for a bit to make sure they work for you.

Terrible This boot is uncomfortable ....just the liner on top of hard plastic. My feet get cold in just minutes...a 20 minute wait for the bus and my feet were frozen ...might as well wear runners. Boots are damp inside and I have no idea why when my feet are too cold to sweat January 7, 2014
Ouchies, ouch, ouch, ouch I arrived in Canada in the middle of winter, so there was a scarcity of boots in store. I wish I had held out and waited for some Caribous instead of panicking and buying these (yes, I needed boots, no I didn't need shredded ankles). The waterproofness is impressive, as I had to wade through several puddles that passed the level of the rubber but my feet remained dry, if shredded. When I first tried them on I could feel the hard ridge of rubber but my flatmate convinced me that winter boots were supposed to feel like that. I really wish I had read these reviews first. Sorel should rethink the design of these boots, and send a pair of Caribous to everyone who shared reviews on this site. We're doing you a favour by sacrificing our tender ankle skin for your product development! January 7, 2014
Worst Purchase Ever... I bought these boots last year without reading the reviews and I regret that. They cut into the back of my feet so bad that they make me bleed. I'm so extremely dissapointed in this product. I will be looking towards other brands for winter boots going forward. December 17, 2013
Disappointed I bought these boots for my daughter last year and when she put them on for the first time this year, she complained that not only did her feet hurt again, they were cold and damp. Sure enough, when I felt the liner, it was almost threadbare in a year. So disappointed in this product as I purchased them thinking this was a good quality product which would keep my daughter's feet war and dry. Not only were they painful the first year - which I thought was her being fussy - they now leak and are painful. Disappointed in my first and last Sorel purchase. December 1, 2013
Same problem with the heel I have had sorels before (the caribou) so I was really looking forward to my new pair. Howerver, there is a defect in the design of these ones.The rubber heel, combined with the softer fabric of the upper part, creates a very hard edge that can be felt through the inner lining.I wore them for about 10 mintues before they wore away the skin on the backs of both my ankles. I was almost crying in pain just trying to get the remaining 4 blocks home.I took them back to the store and they would not return them because I had already thrown out the box and worn them. But now that I see these other reviews I believe this style of sorels has a defective design and Sorel should definitely be taking these back if a customer wants to return them.Because the store where I bought them was of no help I will be contacting Sorel directly about an exchange.

PAINFUL heel! I bought this pair because I have heard RAVE reviews about Sorel footwear and this particular style came in my size (5). I wish I did more research, though.There is very hard plastic exactly where the soft part of my heel is and it rubbed so much skin off so fast that it took a week to heal. (I was on my way to work, had no choice but to keep wearing them. I was almost crying by the end of it!)I can't wear thick socks for extra padding, either, as there isn't enough room. Nor should I have to.I am incredibly disappointed in these boots. I even wore them around the house for 3 days, but there's only so much you can put a pair of boots through in your own house. It takes walking to work in the snow to get a REAL feel, unfortunately. Now I can not return them.Everything else is very comfy and they are very warm, but the incredible pain from my skin being scraped off makes these boots absolutely NOT worth it! BUYER BEWARE.

peeling skin Like the other reviewers, I had a huge problem with these in the heels. I tried wearing them with thick socks and thin socks. Both led to a lot of chafing and peeling skin on the heels. I brought these on a trip to -30C weather in the Northwest Territories, and had to abandon them after two days when one of my heels got so chafed it bled. The shaft above the ankle is also somewhat stiff. January 5, 2013
Disappointed! I was also excited to make this purchase they looked comfortable and durable and they are a awesome style of winter boots. To my realization they gave me horrible blisters on the back of my ankle too as to the previous post.Either the designer has to make some adjustments on this fit and it's proportions. Maybe the company should wear them for an hour at least then they will know what the consumers are talking about here on their own page. It is a Canadian company right?????I definitely do not recommend buying these boots or any ones that are of similar construction. I went out for a walk with the nephews yesterday and I was wearing them for a hour and the blisters came right back in the exact same spot they appeared the first time I wore them. I too thought I would test them again you know to see if the blisters would appear.I really had hoped these boots would have been a great buy and I am thankful I didn't buy the more expensive ones because that would have been a bigger loss for me.

Beautiful but painful I am so disappointed with the fit of these boots, because I was so excited about them in the beginning and love the way they look. I wish I had read more reviews before buying - I went a size up instead of a size down (as was the usual rule-of-thumb when buying boots once upon a time! What happened!), and though they seemed a bit big when I first put them on, I figured I'd rather them be big than have them be snug and risk losing warmth. I should have waited and taken them back to the store to try a smaller size, but I'd received them as a gift, and we were hit with a big snowstorm that day and I was too tempted to go outside in the snow!Within 10 minutes of walking around, I developed excruciating blisters on my heels.What I've discovered after trying different remedies (because I am determined to make these work, at least for a couple seasons) is the trick is to ensure your heel is sufficiently supported. The boots tend to sag a bit around the ankle, which leaves a thick piece of rubber digging into the tendon. What I ended up doing was taking advice from another post - in addition to two pairs of insoles and thick socks, I stuffed a copious amount of cotton balls in between the boot and the lining where the heel is. You need enough so the boot doesn't sag at all, so it might take a lot of cotton balls, depending on how big the boot is.Overall this feels like the silliest thing I've ever had to do to make a pair of shoes work for me. But I also feel pretty silly for wearing them outside before really taking a long-enough test drive indoors.Besides that, they're gorgeous boots.Don't know if I can recommend these - even as snug as I've gotten them to be against my ankle, I can still feel that rubber poking through a bit. I don't understand why a boot would be engineered to have a stiff piece of rubber intruding on the most tender part of the ankle. I'll have to try on another pair that fits my foot better to compare I suppose.Hope my mistakes have helped some of you! December 29, 2011
