    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.

    Warmest Boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 8

    I tried on these before I ordered them, and figured that the size of my normal shoe would work out. When I received them, they were huge! I Got a full size smaller do to the fact that they pack out a little bit. I'm glad I did. I ended up with my size 8s and they fit perfectly. Using my Smartwool ski socks and these boots were a perfect combination to tromp through the heavy snows this last winter. In sub-zero temperatures, my feet felt no chill at all. I highly reccomend snagging these bad boys for winter.

    Great Boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9.5

    After hearing all the accolades about these boots, i finally broke down and bought a pair. Everything I heard from everyone was correct (keep in mind that I work with people who know what they are talking about)! These boots are great. They feel a little bulky on my feet, but do not feel heavy. They are very warn and very comfortable. Five stars form me!

    Solid Winter Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10

    They are pretty heavy and will make your feet look 2 sizes too big, but a small price to pay to have your feet warm and dry in the snow. I sized down a half size and they fit good.

    Great boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: 9

    I bought these boots as a gift for my boyfriend who is always jealous of my Sorels and warm dry feet as a result. He loves them! We live in Breck, Colorado so solid winter gear is a must. These boots definitely run big. He usually wears a 9.5-10. I ordered a 9 and they fit great. They definitely make your feet look huge but isn't that an okay sacrifice to have warm feet on the coldest days?! We definitely recommend them!

    Tried by a Snowmaker

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Size 10

    I have had these boots for a few years. The year I got them I wore them snow making at a ski resort. I spent 5 nights a week in these boots, from dusk to dawn. They are warm and my feet were never once cold. Also the construction is top notch. As I mentioned I wore these boots all winter long and continue to use them and they haven't worn out or begun to fall apart. The things I didn't like about these boots where the weight and waterproof - ness. These boots are HEAVY and if you spend a long time in them your legs will be exhausted. As for the "waterproofing," it doesn't exist. I even water proofed these boots and that didn't help. The nice thing is the liners are removable and you can easily dry them out. Over all they are an okay boot but certainly not the best.

    Classic + dependable + warm

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    In my humble opinion, these boots are pretty much the gold standard by which all around winter boots should be measured. They are incredibly warm and comfortable. Given how warm they are, they are still reasonably light although bulky. I've worn these boots around base camp on a glacier in the Alaska Range and through midtown Manhattan during a blizzard...they can really take you just about anywhere that a non-technical boot is appropriate. The removable liner is a big plus for drying and/or cleaning the boots.

    I'd recommend sizing down a half size, maybe even a full size, depending on how thick or thin you like your winter socks.

    Great Winter Boots!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10

    Excellent boots for cold temps, snow and icy conditions. They fit slightly larger than your normal shoe size but this is a good spec for an extra pair of socks or thicker winter socks, although the boots liners will keep your feet very warm. I recommend these boots and this is a great price!! Also shipping was very fast and Back Country's communication is great!

    POS

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    The Canadian boots were great, but these Chinese versions SUCK BAD. Don't waste your $. The rubber will crack before the warranty expires, so save your receipt. I just ordered a pair of White's pac boots because I work in the snow and run sled dogs as a hobby and I hate having wet feet.

    Classic Comfort

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    These things have been around forever for a reason. Generous fit for maximum comfort and thick winter socks. Quality materials and construction to keep you warm and dry. Not much else to ask for to stomp around in some snow.



    Fit is definitely big. I'm a size 10.5-11 shoe, I got the size 10.0 Caribous and still have plenty of room for the thickest of socks. I could probably rock a 9.5, but I'd rather have them a little loose to keep the circulation in my feet for even more warmth.

    Ideal Winter Boot

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

    I went to school up in Wisconsin. Keeping the feet warm, dry, and happy was critical on those arctic walks to class. These boots are super warm and built with awesome quality. The Thermoplus insulation keeps my feet super duper warm and cozy even when I was hiking across frozen lakes, ice fishing, and tramping around in nipple deep pow pow here in Utah. Highly recommend.

    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.

        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.

          Do you have these boots for women? Thanks.

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

          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.

          i just ordered yesterday from holland, and i expect my shoes to come in on monday morning, i am very happy with the service so far, i can track where my boots are on the internet on the ups website, whom backcountry is using for the shipping, i payed around 70 us dollars for the shipment, so the total price will be inclusive shipping around 180 us doller, around 135 euro , which is cheaper then in holland, (although they are sold out in holland and according to the shops they will not receive anymore shoes this year and foreseeable future) so i can strongly recomend to order online, although i have to say i havent received them yet and i dont know how much my importduties going to be -if any_ but so far so good

          I was reading reviews for this item on REI. The majority of reviewers claim this boot is different from the sorel boot of yesteryear. Most reviewers claim the boot is not waterproof and the sole is not properly attached to the upper section of the boot. The reviews here seem to be unanimous. I'm confused

          The issue is that there is Caribou and Caribou II. Apparently (and I don't know this for sure), Columbia brought Sorel, and they royally screwed it up. The old Sorel Caribou is what you want. there is a post on the net about a snowmobile rental business that bought 100 pairs to rent out--the owner claimed nearly *ALL* developed cracks and leaks in one season. Maybe bad batch.. but it does seem the Caribou II is to blame.

          do these work with crampons?

          No. While you can wear snowshoes with this, you definitely should not try and wear crampons, there isn't anyway for them to be anchored to the boot. Also this boot itself while fine for trekking through the snow is not designed to be used in a "mountaineering" environment, not nearly enough support.

          I have a pair of Sorel Caribou boots that I have owned for over 30 years. Unfortunately, the time has come to replace the liners and I am having difficulty finding the right liner to fit this boot. Can anyone provide a suggestion on which liner to replace the old one with? The ones on the Sorel site seem to be very different from the ones that came with the boot many years ago.
