do not buy this boot!!
bought this boot from another company...I have done some business with backcountry and they have been great...I do alot of remote hiking in the adirondacks.. first time out with this boot it cracked... I wrote sorel... meanwhile, in hopes of a response, and replacement, I tried to repair the boot.. but the crack got worse .. and sorel responded with a " we will get back to you" ..5 months ago... I have always regarded sorel as a quality boot but after this experience, I not only warn you all not to buy this boot, but to not buy from sorel..I spend lots of money on gear, and believe you get what you pay for ..I will never buy a sorel product again!!
