How to Measure Your Foot

  • Place your feet flat on a piece of paper and mark your longest toe and the back of your foot. It's best to do this standing and wearing socks
  • Measure the length (cm) straight from your longest toe to the back of your foot using a ruler or measuring tape.
  • Use the chart to find your size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it I used to buy 6-6.5 but I bought 5 for this boots. I thought it is little bit small but after I walked for a day, It is comfortable. November 20, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing, never again. I bought the Caribou style in the hopes that they would last me at least a few years and keep me warm on the long (4+ hour) walks that I have to do daily in the winter with my large active dog. They are very heavy, I'm in my 20s and they messed up my hip joint, they're unreasonably wide and cumbersome, requiring larger than normal steps to avoid stumbling over them, and most importantly, the rubber wasn't properly molded. The rubber had pretty apparent weak spots and bubbles after a month of use. After 2 months, the seal along the outer edge was wide open, there were numerous holes and tears in the rubber itself. They were cold, wet, and definitely not high enough or tight enough to keep the snow out. I'm very disappointed in the quality of these boots, especially for almost $200 CAD. I wore thick socks with my mother's 30 year old rainboots for the rest of the season and was warmer. I'm never buying another Sorel product in my lifetime. November 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase I made this year These boots are so nice and warm! I can wear them with thin socks and my feet are still toasty. They're not that heavy, I mean they're not light but they're not that heavy either. I love them! The only thing I would warn you about is that they make your feet rather wide because of how thick they are so for someone used to wearing cute booties in the winter you're going to have to get used to the width and added length of the rubber and whatnot but if you're used to wearing winter boots then you're fine. But seriously though, these babies are divine. Also, I measured my feet with thick socks on the way they tell you to and usually I fit an 8 but when I measured it was 7 1/2 so I ordered that and they fit perfectly. It gets pretty slushy and gross where I live and minus 30 is a common seasonal temperature but I have no doubts these boots will be able to handle the harsh weather and salt. October 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mauvaise qualité Mes deux bottes ont fendu sur dessus du pied après 2 saisons en ville. (Les bottes Sorel de mon conjoint ont fait la même chose). Après une saison, j'ai acheté des feutres de remplacement de la même grandeur que les originaux car le feutre s'est tapé mais il m'est impossible de rentrer mon pied dans les nouveaux chaussons en feutre. Ma cheville ne passe même pas dans le chausson (et j'ai des petites chevilles)! Côté chaleur : La coquille en caoutchouc ne laisse pas respirer les pieds et les chaussons deviennent humides rapidement donc pieds froids... La coquille est faite grande contrairement aux chaussons. Qui plus est, le derrière de la botte en cuir a commencé à se découdre lors de la 2ième saison. Je suis très déçue du modèle Caribou de Sorel. Faible qualité qui coûte ridiculement cher! Suggestion: mettez votre 200$ et + sur des bottes 100% cuir faites au Canada! October 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Très satisfaite J'aime bien mes bottes, elles sont chaudes et c'est ce que je voulais pour l'hiver! September 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sizing! i could not find these boots at any store in my area so had to buy online! After reading alot of reviews i was confussed about sizes.. So i order two pairs. One i had measured my foot in cm according to the size chart and one waa what i thought would fit. The "cm" size chart is dead on! If you go even half a size smaller it is too tight in the ankle and you will not be able to get your foot in! So as long as u measure you will have a great fit and they are very good quality boots, i also couldnt find any info on if they stretch just to make sure.. So i called customer service and they definitely do not stretch didnt think so but its nice to have the reassurance on such an expensive boot.. Worth the money! June 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and Comfy I tried on a pair of similar Sorels in store to find out what size would hopefully fit best. I tried finding the Caribou style in stores, I looked everywhere but no luck. I ended up ordering a size 10 (I'm usually a 9/10 depending on the brand and style) and they fit great and I have enough space to comfortably wear a thick sock if I chose. I wanted a boot that looked good, but was also practical for the cold Canadian winters! They are warm and comfortable, nothing poking me or rubbing. I haven't slipped once while wearing them. I love that the liner comes out so I can wash them too if need be. They do feel heavy when you take them out of the box, but I've had no issues walking in them or anything because of the weight of them. They look great and I love the color. I did spray them with a protector just to be safe as well. I would for sure recommend the Sorel brand, specifically the Caribou boot! January 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great in the Rain [The snow went away :( ] Quality: I've only had these boots for about a month so far, but I've been wearing them pretty much everyday! They feel very sturdy, and are definitely heavy duty. I haven't experienced any cracking or separating of the rubber (so far), and they seem like they will hold up for a long time. The rubber soles and toe are thick and durable, and the grip of the tread on the bottom of the boots is amazing. Looking forward to testing them out on ice. Warmth/Water resistance: Unfortunately, all the snow decided to melt the day before my boots arrived, so I haven't been able to test them out in cold snowy weather. I can say with certainty that these boots are extremely warm, and could definitely be worn without socks if that's your thing. It has been quite rainy recently, so these boots have been great as rain boots, with no leaking through seams or through the material above the rubber. Fit: These are huge. I normally wear a size 10, but all that was available to order when I needed them was 9.5. These things are still big on me, I could have stood to go down to a size 9. They're still very comfortable, and will stay on my foot, but there is lots of wiggle room on all sides. I recommend going down a full to half size when ordering these just from my experience. Overall, these boots have been great during the unseasonably warm temperatures and frequent rain, and from wearing them daily, I see no reason why they won't perform exceptionally when the snow finally does decide to make its way here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Quality I have already had two pairs of these and both had the same problem. I wear these boots to walk to/from work on weekdays and I am disappointed with the quality of the Caribou boots. I was expecting them to last more than 2 winter seasons. They have lost their waterproofing qualities and continue to tear across the toe area. I would not recommend purchasing these boots. May 15, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cracked in less than a season - twice These boots looked good, and I had heard good things about quality so I bought a pair of Sorel 1864 boots in the late Fall. Within a month the rubber at the back of the heel on both boots had cracked horizontally along the sole. I was surprised and brought them back. The boots were replaced with Sorel Caribous. They lasted a little longer, but unfortunately by late winter again the rubber cracked, this time along the outer edge of each boot - running parallel to where the side of the toes lie. I've heard about Sorels lasting for years, but it seems there is a serious quality control issue with the rubber they are now using. April 22, 2014
