Closeouts. Inspired by the Mad Men of the 50s, Sorel's Mad Slip boots seamlessly blend vintage elements with modern functionality. The burnished leather upper features a felt shaft and plush pile lining.

This boot was easy to take on and off and is very comfortable for wearing around town. It is warm enough for brief periods of time in below freezing temperatures. The sole is comfortable and grips the ground well. I wear a size 14–15M and the size 15 fit exactly as expected- a touch large so I could fit in a thick winter sock. I have had no problem sliding the boot on and off and the right and left boots are the same size unlike in other reviews. I treated the leather with Sno-Seal and had dry feet after many exposures to slush from melting snow plus the salt from the sidewalks doesn't stick to the treated leather. I look forward to many good years from these quality boots.

Good looking, slip on. Just got them still bonding, but really like them. Odd sizing, they say to go one size up which I do some time's in different manufactures , this time I was swimming in the 13. The 12 could be a titch bigger, so go figure.

What a great boot! This boot is true to size. Only hiccup is that it is hard to get on for the first couple of wears, but after that it slips on rather easily! This boot has held up very well through one extremely rough Chicago winter. I am very pleased with the boot for the price. Surprisingly warm for such a non bulky winter boot.

I searched countless hours for a pair of winter boots; they had to be casual enough to wear to the office (didn't want to deal with changing, etc.), have good tread, were warm, and something that didn't just look like any other snow boot. I came across the Sorel Mad Slip, and found exactly what I was looking for. I went with the 'wild dove' color, which looks classy. As far as size goes, I typically wear a 10.5-11, based on some other reviews and the fact that these are slip ons, I opted to go with an 11. These still have some room to spare (which would be good for some thick warm socks when needed). I've had no issue getting my feet into them as some have, they glide right on for me. They're surprisingly comfortable, and so far have kept my feet warm and dry on those walks to the car through the snow and ice. Would definitely recommend this boot. The experience with Sierra Trading Post was my first, and it was a good one especially with the great deal I found on these bad boys.

I can sympathize with a lot of the complaints in other reviews, but I like these quite a bit. My foot is a very wide size 8 with a very high arch, so that I always buy shoes sized 8-1/2 (and very occasionally a 9). Based on other reviews I got the size 9, and they're a pretty fair fit. They ARE a chore to slip on with fat socks or swollen feet, but they work for me. The style is nice, but I couldn't fit my pant legs into the boot - so they hang outside... not ideal for deep snow & slush. I've worn them in really cold weather (-18C / 0F) and they're perfectly warm - they're also very light and have a nice aggressive tread.
So despite all the cons they're pretty good boots for the money, and I'm happy to keep these for city wear. The 'burnished leather upper', by the way, is a beautiful soft leather.

I bought these for my husband to wear on a business trip while in Scandanavia. Hoping for it to work walking the snowy streets and still be ok at the office. He wears a 10 1/2 usually and I bought the 11, his feet are average width. At first, he could not even come close to getting his foot in the shoe - but with a lot of tugging and pulling, he finally got it in and once on, they were a good fit. We were going to send them back, but after trying them on and off for several times, they stretched out a bit and he decided to keep them althought he can't wear thick socks with them, they seem to be warm enough not to have to. My son who wears about a 10 shoe, but has wide feet, couldn't even begin to get his foot in it. So I would not recommend these for anyone with wide feet and if you are in doubt- size up. I would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could (for the difficulty in getting them on) - it would be nice if there was a heel tab to help pull the shoes on.

Ordered these in size 15 for gifting. He was thrilled; took one out of the box and slipped it right on; it was prefect! Then he tried the other only to find it too small. He held them up together and it was obvious that they were not the same size despite the label. So, we returned them with a note asking for replacements that were the both the same size as the left boot. Got the new ones. They were both the same size, but neither fit.
He is most disappointed. I'd try again, but return shipping adds up.
