Description

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.

Hi Jeanette,
We had one last pair of the 10 in stock in that color- I have them on hold under your account, and have emailed you with the details!

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!

I just got mine in the mail and thought the same thing! Love how they look and feel but not something I can wear with jeans without feeling or looking like I have cement blocks on my feet! I wish they were smaller cause they are cute

Loving Winter

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • 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
  • 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.

I wonder this boots production year.(shale)

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!

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!

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
  • 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
  • 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,

LOVE THESE

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These boots have been treating me right for over 5 years! Still in pretty good condition, and never fail to keep my feet warm and dry. I wear a size 7.5 in shoes normally, and the size 8 in these sorels fit me perfect!

Quality has gotten worse.

My dad has a pair of Caribous that have been awesome for 15 years. I bought mine 1.5 years ago and they are falling apart. Made in China now. I wear them almost every day in the winter, and the soles have lasted. But the liners have ripped and the rubber part on the top/inner part of both boots have holes (the big toe knuckle area, if that makes sense). Look into other winter boots, because these are great at first but just don't last.

size issues--seems everyone has

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

I got my regular size and they are huge! Wish there were 1/2 sizes available. I thought they'd be okay with bulkier socks--but the lining is so thick your feet will cook with thick socks.
That being said--I do like them and they are holding up in the mountain snow.

Bulky but warm

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This boot is a bit big in size, I'm a size 6 but could of went with a size 5. Extremely warm and a bit heavy to walk in.
