Here's what others have to say...

Is there any chance any 10.5 in tobacco are coming in anytime soon?


I am not seeing that we have any on order at this moment.


They run super large, very nice and warm

The leather is great, much better than the none- wool caribous. You'll be swimming in these boots if you get your normal size. Wearing double wool socks would fit but these are already so warm that that would make you sweat too much. Order a half size smaller and expect some wiggle.


nice and warm

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

I have used these alot and they are warm if there is no snow on your toes, at least for me. after a few years the rubber opened up where the boot folds from walking around. not that water proof but in wet snow they should hold. just don't go waling through water with them. They dry fast in a boot dryer. nice boots.


Get these and call it a winter.

Sorel is known for quality and comfort. These don't disappoint. These should last 10 years or more. They look nice. A bit balky but that's the price you pay to be warm and dry on the gnarliest of days.


love these

I would definitely go with the wool liner. They are much warmer than the synthetics and better wet. These have kept me warm in Greenland down below -40 and -58 C with windchill.

I really want to purchase these in a 12 but almost every size is sold out. When is additional stock coming in?! They are available on the Sorel company website.


We do have an order of Tobacco size 12 coming in. I would expect to see them soon so keep checking this page.

Unanswered Question



Changed my life

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

Love wearing these boots. Slip them on when driving to the mountain, after shredding, or when filming street snowboarding in the cold. Super comfortable and stylish. True-to-size fit. I wear size nine in skate shoes Vans, Nike ect and went size nine in Sorels and they fit perfect. Would recommend.


Worth the extra cost for the wool liner

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've been wearing a pair of these for winter dog walks, shoveling, and apres-ski parking lots for several years now. They're awesome. IMHO, the wool-liner version has a higher build quality, and the liners stink less.

I think Columbia sticks the Caribou label on a bunch of different Sorel boots from different sources, I've seen pretty wide price and quality discrepancies on store shelves over the years. Be safe, stick to the higher price models, get the model that lasts years and is really warm and waterproof.

I wear a 10.5 sneaker and bought the size 11 so it's nice and roomy after a day in ski boots. Can also fit 2 pairs of socks in there if I want. The fit is a little sloppy, but then I never want to walk all that fast in these heavy beasts.


Amazingly happy feet!

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

For one of my jobs, I work outside 8 to 12 hours a day in the snow. These boots have become CRUCIAL to the survival of my toes. Other boots I've tried have claimed to be waterproof, but after the first 5 hours have allowed a little wetness into the boot. These have kept my feet extremely dry all the live long day. Paired with some wool compression socks to wick away seat and keep the blood flowing, I can easily get through even the coldest shifts while trudging through powder or slush. This is probably the third year going into the fourth winter that I've been using these. Great product. Pretty heavy, but I'll take it for how waterproof they are.


Feet are warm and toasty!

    Great boots! If ya live in snow, then these are the boots ya want!


    So far, so good

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I've used these boots for the last 2 winters and have been pleased with them. Super warm, good grip and easy to slip on without tying. Only complaint is that one of the inserts doesn't want to stay in the boot when I take it off. Other than that, pretty solid.

    I have had the same issue with the inserts. Have you found any workarounds?

    Classic fit and style, slightly bulky! Very warm.


    Same as it ever was

    • Gender:Male
    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    The most classic of boots, the Caribou is made for winter. Waterproof, and super warm. Yeah, a bit clunky, but soo comfortable. These replace my old pair after more than a decade.

    I just got these in the mail today. Size...

    I just got these in the mail today. Size 10 and my toe is at the end, so the 11's would be too big. Will these stretch at all?

    Hi rpep, do you think you could do me a huge favor and measure your foot with a ruler or tape measure, and tell me your size in mm from heel to tip of longest toe?

    And to answer your question, the fleece might give a slight bit, but the rubber of the boot will not. So if the fleece is in the boot snugly, then you're SOL, and should return them for a bigger size.

    i ended up sending them back and getting the 11's.

    Glad the 11s fit. Would you mind letting me know how big your feet are in mm when you have the chance, it would really help me out. Like actual measurement of your foot. Thanks!


    Good clunky boot

      I am a woman and normally have to get men's shoes, so I opted for a pair of these in a size 10. I usually wear women's 11 or men's 9.5. I figured that I'd be wearing big wool socks so it's better to error on the larger side than the smaller side.
      The boots a super sturdy and they fit great. A little loose in the toe, but perfect for cold winter days. They are very heavy and clunky.


      Solid, heavy, winter boot

        Classic boot. It’s kept me very warm for my first winter in Utah. They’ve stood up well to deep snow and some spring mud. It’s too soon to tell if there will be durability issues down the road, but for now I love them. One thing that comes with the territory – they are very heavy. I’m fine with this, but you can definitely notice it as you wear them around.

        What is the diff of sorel caribou wool...

        What is the diff of sorel caribou wool boot and sorel caribou is it the same leather

        Scott, I believe the leather is the same and the only difference is the wool insert in this boot.

        the difference is the insulation, natural or synthetic. I recommend the natural wool.


        All men need a pair of these bad boi's

          If your sick and tired of having wet/cold feet in the winter OR use the excuse "I don't have the proper footwear" when your girlfriend asks you to go on a walk in the freezing cold, YOU NEED THESE BOOTS! They will save your feet and your relationship! Get em! Boom.
