The Lea Wedge Booties from Sorel are a sleek and comfortable pair of boots that work well in light rain. They are incredibly versatile and well made. The upper is rich and supple waterproof full grain leather with microfiber lining. The design effectively seals the boot from the outer elements.
The wedge design makes walking easy and features a high traction molded rubber sole to secure every step even in slippery conditions.
The interior fit is comfortable with a removable footbed and arch support. The top cover is made with microfleece material. The shaft measures approximately 4″ from the arch.
Stylish enough for everyday wear but functional when engaging with snow and rain. They conform nicely to the contours of the foot and are extremely comfortable and supportive. Most people find the fit to be satisfactory but some advise to plan for sock thickness when deciding on your size as lower temperature may require thicker socks for added warmth.
Best for Light Rain
I’ve been wanting a pair of Sorel “Joan of Arctic” boots for a while, but didn’t like the lace up so when I saw the Lea boot with no laces, I jumped on it. This boot has exceeded my expectations so far. I commute to Philadelphia for work and walk a lot, in different types of weather so I was looking for something waterproof/snowproof but stylish enough to wear with business suits. This boot fits the bill and will look great with jeans, too.
The boots arrived and I noticed that initially they were tight in the mid-foot area, and I have a narrowish foot to begin with. However, I’m happy to report that after wearing them around the house for a day with a pair of socks, they are perfectly comfortable. I usually wear a size 8, sometimes a 7.5, I got the 7.5 and they are perfect.
Today I took them for their first test drive – I walked 20 blocks to work from the furthest train station. This is a big risk for a pair of new boots, but I am delighted to say they are VERY comfortable and supportive. No blisters, chafing, and I had to keep looking down to see if I was really walking on heels, because it doesn’t feel that way. At 53 years old, I can really appreciate boots that are comfy and stylish since normally I just go for stylish! Already got my first compliment on them, too. Don’t hesitate on these, they are awesome!
My favorite boots right now! I’m usually 8.5 and ordered 9 and am happy with the fit. I will say they were slightly uncomfortable the first couple wears but now that they are “broken in” they are amazingly comfy.
Quality Leather Build
The most comfortable pair of wedges in the world. I also never worry about slipping in the winter with these on. They are a little more narrow than I hoped but after a few wears they’ve stretched to fit. I want them in every color and find excuses to wear them! Last time I wore them was to volunteer to wrap presents at Toys for a Tots. It was a full day of standing. My feet didn’t hurt at all at the end of the day. Like I said… I want to buy them in every color now!!
I absolutely love these shoes! Some people have recommended sizing up but I would advise against it, they stretched a little bit after wearing them a few times. They were very comfortable right out of the box. They’re very stylish and I’ve gotten quite a few compliments on them. Other women ask me about them because they’ve been eyeballing them too. At $200 you might question if they are worth it, they are.
Stylish and Comfortable for Everyday Wear
Stylish enough for everyday wear, but functional for rain and snow. Rubs slightly on one of my left toes (similar place to some of my heels so more of an issue with my feet than the boot), but nothing a band-aid won’t fix. No warmth in the boot, so size up if you plan to wear thick socks. These were a great buy for traveling and snowy conditions!
Sleek, comfortable and incredibly versatile, the beloved Lea Wedge is a best seller for a reason. Rich, supple waterproof full-grain leather seals out the elements, while the classic Chelsea stretch panels provide the perfect fit. The easy-to-walk-in wedge design is finished off with a high-traction molded rubber sole to take you anywhere.
