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.


Women’s Glacy™ Explorer Boot is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 189.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light to moderate winter I really do like these boots. I bought them for this past winter and will definitely be using them again. I got many compliments on them, even from men. I do go outside/do a lot of walking in the winter so a good, durable winter boot was badly needed for myself. These boots do fit slightly large like other reviewers have said. I can comfortably fit 1 thick sock in it, and then it gets a little hard to squeeze my feet in if I have any more. I tried breaking the boots in wearing ankle socks but the boots kinda chaffed my ankles. They were fine after those initial first wears. I never owned real winter boots before, so they felt a little heavy and bulky. Eventually though, I got used to them. We had sort of a more mild winter this year in Minnesota, but still had days that were -20 to -30 degrees. These boots kept my feet fairly warm. I think my feet were sweating most of the time. I always wore thick socks with them. I did notice my toes feeling cold a few mornings when it was -10 to -20 below. I noticed it probably 3-5 minutes while standing outside. So like the description, the best use is for light to moderate winter/snow. It's definitely an in-between boot (between just fashion and true winter boots).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love these boots!! I could not have ordered or received these boots at a better time! They came the night before a snowstorm in Colorado. I tromped through calf tall snow and no water or dampness was felt on the inside. The next snow was heavy and wet and I even stepped into a water puddle while scooping my driveway and still nothing came into the boot!! I ordered true to size based on reviews, a size 7. I could have gone to a size 6.5. With that being said I'm sure I will enjoy the space if I ever feel the need to wear super thick socks. These boots are very comfortable! Wore them all day at work with no issues, and I got lots of compliments!! I would definitely order them again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Design!But not very warm! I love these boots!The design is very cool and the colors and the different patterns match together very well! I usually wear a 7 but these boots fit big and so I bought a 6.5. They are still a little bit long and wide but I will wear them with a thick pair of socks because they are not warm as I was thinking!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glacy Explorer - love it- but not for icy conditions I love the comfort and look of this boot. It is a great cold weather boot that has super cushion and warmth. The only reason it's a 4 and not 5 is functionality on ice. NOTE: This is not a boot for icy conditions. I have found (the hard way) that there is very little to no traction on ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Non-Slip Yes, they do run large. I ordered my regular size and added a sheepskin insole and they're perfect now, I can even wear them without socks. I especially appreciate that the soles are non-slip and do a terrific job on icy surfaces. They keep my feet warm on two mike walks with my dogs on our snowpacked dirt roads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! I ordered these boots as a second, more casual pair in addition to another pair of sorel boots that I have for sub-zero Colorado trips we make every year. I am a true size 11-1/2, which makes it hard to find boots that fit. Typically, they are too small in an 11 and too big in a 12. But, the long lacing system of this boot compensates for the larger size, and fit me great. I have just enough extra room to wiggle my toes, and the heel DID NOT slip. The Explorer boot is super comfortable. I've worn them all day several times, and even drove in then for 8 hours another time. I didn't care for the mustard yellow laces, so I replaced them with black laces. These boots look really cute with jeans tucked in, and are light-weight to wear for long periods of time. Makes it easy to walk in, too. I'd definitely recommend these for warmth and fashion combined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots. For 2 years now I have wanted these boots. Finally purchased for myself, love them. They are super comfy, I have flat feet and can only wear shoes with an arch and these are great. They are super warm and very true to size. I was worried about that because so many conflicting reports. So order your size. Have not wore them in the snow because in Chicago we haven't had any since I got them. It has been cold and they have been wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort to a T! Love my new boots. Living in cold Wisconsin, where we get plenty of snow, these do the trick for comfort, style, warmth and quality. I'm a total Sorely fan, as I own several pair. I've got slip on styles as well as boots. I've never been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! These boots are amazing. I have 4 pairs and they are all perfect and comfortable. They are the warmest winter boots I've ever had and water has never come through. I would recommend these to anyone!
