    Details

    Made to keep your feet warm and dry in cold, wet conditions.

    Hike down an icy trail or use them with your snowshoes; either way, you'll be plenty warm in the Sorel Women'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 across uneven terrain. The Caribou Boot is waterproof, and the 9mm ThermoPlus felt liner is removable, so you can dry them out between uses.

    Cute and good quality snow boots

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

    I just got back yesterday from a very chilly vacation and wore my new boots for the first time. They do run large. I should've ordered a size smaller, or at least half a size. I normally wear a 9 or 9.5 in other shoes and I ordered a 9.5 and they were too big, but I didn't have enough time to return them and have them back in time for my vacation so I wore them anyway.
    My trip included several miles of walking during the day in the snow and ice and for not breaking them in beforehand, my calves were a little sore from the boot. The boots are heavy and to avoid "scuffing", you need to pick up your feet when you walk.
    Overall, they are cute and stylish and they kept my feet warm and dry. I only wish I had time to exchange for a smaller size. Had I ordered the right size, I would've been completely satisfied.

    Greatest Boots I've Ever Owned

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: 9

    After winter in New England last year, I tried to get LL Bean boots, but they were out of stock for months on end. So when I started looking at alternatives, Sorel looked like the most comparable as far as price and quality. So I ordered the Caribous a size smaller than I normally wear (I'm usually a true size 10, I ordered a 9), based on the reviews, and they're PERFECTION. I ran through six inches of lighter, fluffy snow a few weeks ago with my dog, and they were warm and dry then, but the true test was today's weather. We got a few heavy, wet inches of snow this morning, and I wore these boots out to clean off my car. My feet are warm, dry and happy. There's room for a thicker pair of socks, although I don't find that I need them, but not so much room that my feet slide around inside the boot. The fit is perfect. I love these boots, and I hope to have them for a long time.

    Awesome boots!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: 8

    Very warm, comfortable and super cute! They definitely run big but if you see other reviews you can size them appropriately. I usually wear an 8.5 shoe but a half size smaller in boots, and thats what I did. The size 8's fit great!

    Extremely warm, run a little big

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

    Great for slipping on and taking the dog for a walk, shoveling, or an arctic picnic, however, they run a little large. Looking forward to breaking them in more so they are easier to get around town in..great traction and the first time I have commented on my feet being "hot" during a snowstorm.

    Awesome boots

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

    I have never owned a pair of Sorel boots before. Now I wonder how I've lived in MN and SD without them! They are comfortable, waterproof, durable and work great for outside chores. In the future I will only buy Sorel for my functional winter work boot. I normally wear a size 7.5 shoe and downsized to the size 7 boot, they fit great and hug my foot like a glove. Highly recommend these boots.

    Love them. They run large.

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

    Love these boots--got a pair for both me and my husband. Very comfortable and warm. They ran a full size too large in mens and a half size too large in womens. Backcountry quickly and easily sorted the exchange and we are enjoying both pairs!

    Big Clunky Toe

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs large

    I ordered these after seeing so many cute outfits with Sorel boots and knowing our winter is going to be very, very cold (just outside of Philly). I was so excited to get the package only to be disappointed when I tried them on and my size 9 foot looked like a Men's size 11. The toe portion of this boot is HUGE. I mean very wide! I could walk with both of them on because they would hit each other. I also ordered the Sorel Cumberland for my mom and they are much more slim and cute. I will be ordering those for myself now.

    They were comfy and the inner lining was so warm and soft, but the giant oversized toe just ruined it for me.

    Too bulky, cut big

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs large

    These boots have everything I thought I wanted, but they are just too big and bulky. I read a review that they look and feel like men's construction boots and it's an accurate description. They are extremely heavy and wide. Mine were cut very big too, at least a half size if not more. I live in an area where we only get a few feet of snow a year, so I think these are just too hard core for my needs. I will say they are well made and certainly feel warm.

    Extremely Bukly

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs large

    I bought these boots because I have heard nothing but wonderful things about Sorel boots, and how they are still cute yet warm to wear around in the winter. I got these in the mail, no joke, each weighing 5 pounds. They looked like mens construction worker boots. I actually thought I accidentally ordered mens instead of womens --nope! Unless you are looking to walk with your feet dragging behind you, I do not recommend this product. Very displeased that I have to pay for the shipping to return them as well >:(

    Heavy duty, warm, but ENORMOUS

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

    I just got these in the mail, so I haven't played with them yet. This is purely a cosmetic and initial reaction review. Feet slide in and out of them, they are roomy enough for good socks. I'm a 9 and they were very comfortable. However, because these are intense snow boots, they look VERY large. I bought these to wear on long winter walks with my dog. These may not be boots that someone is looking for for fashion, at least if you have large feet like me. I feel like a giant in them!

    Loving Winter

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    I have an avid out door Mother, actually the reason I grew up outdoors and fell in love with it. She is an avid snowshoer. And lives in the mountains. As one of the pickiest people I know, she is now on her 2nd pair of these boots after a few seasons in her first pair. She loves them. Even though she fights poor circulation, her feet still stay quiet warm for full day adventures. Nothing is better than a Mom's approval, and these boots have them.

    Exactly what she wanted

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    I have been going crazy for one year to find a size 9 in the Buff/Black combo. Thank you Backcountry.com. These were for my mom. They fit true to size. Cannot attest to their waterproof ability or warmth until full winter hits. I have heard wonderful things about Sorel and hopefully they meet expecations.

    awesome boots but runs large!

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

    super warm, but I'm usually a 7.5-8.5 and the 7's fit well, I could actually almost do a 6.5, but they don't do half sizes. I got them in the buff and they look good with a lot of stuff and especially good for snowy, cold days!

    Cracking

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    My first pair of Sorels, purchased in the mid 80's, lasted me twenty years. I bought more wool liners every few years, but the boots lasted me through 20 winters, most of those winters in Minnesota. I bought this Caribou Sorel boot in Dec of 2010 & the rubber on the top side is cracking open! This never happened to my original pair even after 20 years of wear! I am very disappointed!

    Cracking

    Great quality, Runs Big

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs large

    Gave this as a gift to my girlfriend, she lived the product but it was about 2 sizes too big on her. She's a 6.5/7 and we ordered a 7. Make sure you order a size down. She loved the product and style so we're going to exchange (hopefully if they have the size) to a smaller one.

    Classic Style and Warmth

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:Runs large

    I purchased these as a gift and the Sorel brand never fails to disappoint. Really warm, comfortable and stylish, these boots are perfect for the winter months. They keep your feet warm on the coldest of days and are comfortable enough to wear the entire day.

    The waterproof leather comes in handy when your inner child comes out to play and can't resist jumping in a few puddles.

    Slips on ice

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs small

    whatever you do, do NOT go outside and test these boots! I wanted to know if they would slip on ice (which they did) and my $ was not refunded--store credit. They cited "dirt" as the reason. I literally walked onto on my front porch. Brush it off! Disappointing.

    Like snowmobiles, for your feet

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

    Having just moved out West it was obvious I needed new boots to weather the winters whether it be shoveling snow, trotting around town, or a stroll through the woods. After reading Sorel's record of quality and warmth I invested in these and am very happy. They run a bit large and therefore feel a little clunky, but have withstood the freezing cold and snow amazingly. Plus everyone in the West seems to own a pair so there's no risk of a fashion faux pas. Definitely won't be my last pair of Sorel's.

    Durable winter wear

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    My wife was in desperate need of a warm and dry winter boot with some solid traction. Sorel to the rescue. The Sorel Caribou Boot is rated to -40F (not that she will ever need that level of protection) and has kept her feet out of the harsh weather even when going out into a storm is unavoidable. The best part of all is the traction. As a pregnant woman she is wary of slipping on ice in the winter months, but the Sorel's durable nub tread has kept her safe every step of the way,

    What size do you recommend getting for an 8.5?

    Hi Erin,

    I would always urge people to get the size that they normally wear here. The general consensus on these particular boots is that they run a half size large so you may want to go a little bit smaller.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    do these have a pretty wide toe box? the fact that they run a large is really encouraging, but finding something workable is an absolute chore since I'm a completely flat-footed size 12 with a bunion ):

    You're right, andrew; bunion-owners rejoice! I went ahead and bought a pair since winter's coming quickly and I didn't want to risk them being out of stock; not only are they wide enough to wear comfortably, but there's room for an orthotic as well if I find I need it!

    I live in Boston, and the sidewalks get pretty icy, are these boots slip proof on cobblestones?

    Hi Anne,

    Not sure if you've purchased your boots yet, but I have had a pair of Caribous for 4 years while living in Minneapolis. I needed something to protect my feet during brutal Minnesota winters, where I walked a lot. While I am totally happy with their warmth, the soles are definitely not slip proof. I actually had to invest in a pair of micro crampons for mixed snow/ice situations (the kind with little metal studs in the frame, not actual spikes). I bit the dust more than once on icy sidewalks before I got them. It's easy to think that because they are so bulky, they will protect you from the slippery stuff, but my experience has been to take the further precaution of the crampons.



    Unrelated, but the reason I'm on the site searching for a new pair is that the outer rubber material started to crack where my toes bend, at the same point on both boots, almost like they had dry rot? Unfortunately Sorel customer service said that they could do nothing about the situation because the boots were over 3 years old, and alas the place that I purchased them from was not Backcountry, with its wonderful return policy. I'm caught, because they are incredibly warm. But be advised that the outer rubber has the potential to crack over time.

    Hi there! Checking in to see if an item is on back order - looking to purchase a pair of the Shale grey boots in size 8.5! Any chance of getting them this season? Thanks!

    Are you expecting the grey boots in a size 8 anytime soon?

    Are you guys planning on getting any more of these in the cinnamon color size 9.5? The entire internet seems to be sold out.

    Will you be getting more size 6 in buff color? Thx.

    Will you be getting more of these in the Shale/Black color? I need an 8.5!

    cvi105700559,



    We do have a vendor order on the way to replenish our inventory. Shale/Stone 8.5 is part of that order. I would expect to see if available for purchase by the end of the month or beginning of February. Keep checking the page at least once a day.

    Do these run small? I wear a size 11 or 11.5 and I want to make sure they are not too tight.

    They run large!! I usually wear a 9 and ordered an 8 and they fit perfectly, even with a little bit of a thicker sock. Keep in mind with wear the liner will start to stretch out and will give you a little more space. I highly recommend you get the size down, the 9 would be huge on me.

    Will you be getting more of these in Cinnamon or Buff in size 7?

    When will you get more sizes in Cinnamon? specifically size 8-9?

    Will the Shale be getting restocked any time soon? I need a size 10!
