Description

Sorel made the Caribou Boot to keep your feet warm and dry in cold, wet conditions.

Stomp through the woods or just sit still; you'll be plenty warm in the Sorel Men's Caribou Boot. Rated to -40F, the Caribou Boot is built from a waterproof full-grain leather upper attached to a vulcanized rubber bottom. Metal shanks across the heel and ball of your foot give you sturdy footing whether you walk on the ice checking tip ups or are just on your way in to work. The Caribou Boot is waterproof, and the 9mm ThermoPlus felt liner is removable, so you can dry them out between uses.

Great Gift

I purchased these boots for my father-in-law for Christmas. I found them cheaper on Backcountry and was able to ship to him with no problems.

A Real Good Boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these boots. If only I didn't get bamboozled into buying two sized too big by some schmuck at Sports Authority. "You'll want room for extra socks." Codswallop! These are warm enough that you really don't even need socks most of the time. But anyhow, apart from being huge, my boots are awesome. Like I already said, they're super warm. They are quite comfortable, have great traction, and still look great after 6 Utah winters. They're not super high-tech or anything, but if you're looking for a boot that can handle year after year of shoveling snow, sledding, some snow shoeing, and probably anything else you or mother nature can throw at it, look no further. Just don't buy two sizes up. Jerk salesman...

Top Notch

These are my go-to winter boots and they have never failed me! They are a classic piece of winter outerwear. I use them as my pre and post skiing boots to drive to and from the slopes in. They are so comfortable to put on after a long day of shredding. I also use these when I'm brapping on my snowmobile and my feet stay completely dry and warm! I highly recommend these. Top notch quality and comfort

The winter boot to get.

I have sold these working retail and I have owned them for decades. They are the quintessential winter boot to own. I only wear mine a few weeks out of the year but they are always awesome when going skiing or when we finally get a few snow flurries at home.

I call them orgasmic when I put them on after skiing.

Fabulous quality

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these for my son. My husband has had the same pair for fifteen years or more, and they have lasted through many Maine winters. We haven't actually put *this* pair through the wringer, but my husband's pair are still in fabulous condition. They are very warm.

The originators of snowboarding used Sorel boots!

One of the best winter boots

My brother is a ski bum in Park City, I Live in Flagstaff. We're both at 7k in the snow and love the boots. I haven't had durability issues. The rubber on his cracked but was replaced under warranty. These boots keep me plenty toasty and totally dry. I'm sure the are plenty of other boots that are waterproof and warm too.

I would point out that these are not expedition boots. If you're shopping for Denali, hopefully you know better. But for an everyday live on a mountain, shovel the driveway, play in the snow boot, these are worth it.

Cool, but not that impressive

These are the icon that most people think about when they think about winter boots. I got a pair a little over ten years ago and they are still in pretty good condition, although I don't wear them that often. I think there are plenty of better boots for the price. I worked for an outdoor retailer at the time, so I think I paid about $30, which was too good to pass up. I would say the -40F rating is way off. I have a pair of Rocky hunting boots with 800g Thinsuate that I would say are as warm as the Caribous and way more comfortable to walk in. If you like the style, which is super cool, go for it and buy them. Otherwise, Backcountry has plenty of other styles that will perform better.

Great for Artic use

I recently went to Alaska to use the boots and they worked great! Got great traction and it kept my feet warm even at -30 when I was outside at night looking at the northern lights. Also while knee deep in snow I had no problems. I would agree with the other posters and get a least 1 size bigger, I usually wear size 12 so I got a 14 to compensate for the multiple layers of socks and it worked great. I would say a great buy.

Fantastic boots.

My boots look like they did the day I bought them, and that was in the fall of 1977! I bought an extra pair of liners at the same time, and have alternated between the two so I'm always pulling on a pair of warm, dry, comfortable boots. You can't go wrong by choosing Caribous.

Classic style , great for the snow

Bought these for a recent trip to the snow. They kept me warm and dry even walking the dog in 9 degree weather at midnight. The lug soles have good, but not great, traction in the snow. The traction was more than sufficient for shoveling snow and all around use. Despite what others have said, I don't think they run large (long), but I typically wear EE width and they fit great.

Warm and Dry

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use these boots in snow every day since November and so far they still look like new. No signs of the rubber breaking down like others have mentioned.
I walk for 30 minutes a day in snow on average and some days I will spend entire days outside in powder in these boots for work and I have never had cold or wet feet.
These boots are designed to last for years and it will be interesting to see if they do.

Sizing Issues

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

So, I bought the size 11 initially, but since they were too small, had to trade in for the size 12.

Great Winter Shoe

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

Bought this as present for my little brother, who is actually not so little. He ordered his normal shoe size of 11, and it was too small. I am returning for the next size up and hopefully that will work a little better. My brother can hardly wait to take them out and romp around in the snow!

Broke down after only 1 winter

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had the boots for one winter. I walk to and from a house inside a ski resort, so I use them almost every day during the winter for two 15 minute walks. After about 2 months the rubber broke down exactly like you see in jordan.sch pics. I kept them through the winter and then returned them to Backcountry.com and went with something else, hopefully more durable.

How true is it that the older Made in Canada version was great and the new Made in China version is stinky?

Responded on

It must be true. I bought a pair of the Canadian version over 15 years ago. It's the only snow boot I've owned since then. I live in East Idaho where we have plenty of snow to go around. I've used them for everything from camping with boy scouts, sledding with my kids, and snowmobiling in mountains over 10,000 ft. Best winter boot I've ever owned. Too bad the Chinese have ruined them.
