Excellent Boot But Order 1/2 Size Larger
This is a terrific boot! The soles have outstanding grip for climbing. They were very warm and comfortable right from the start. I did not need to break them in. However, I did need to return mine for a half size larger as my toe hit the front end in each boot. I always wear a 9 to 9 1/2. I ordered a 9 1/2 and had to return my boots for a 10. Now they are perfect.
I highly recommend this product.
I have used these, and I also use the Sorel Caribou. I prefer these for most activities. Snow shoeing, hiking, street wear, I do prefer my Caribou's on a snowmobile though. Calf gaiter is a huge + and these will keep you dry and warm. They are true to size.
Killer Boots Man
These boots are great. Got them a little late in the season to really put them to use but when I have used them they have been awesome. Very warm and comfortable. I especially like the built in snow gator. The achilles strap does a good job of preventing hill slippage as is the case with so many snow boots I have owned. You can really move around comfortably in these. I anticipate them lasting me many snowy winters.
I have been wearing these boots HARD for the past 7 years! I first received them as a gift from my sister because I needed some warm boots for my demanding, most extreme cold winter job of snowmaking in the northeast. I have worn these boots in some of the most extreme wind chills (-90) and walked in puddles made by snow-guns at 0 degrees and these boots always kept my feet warm and dry! Unfortunately ,now, after all these years I am in need of a new pair. The insulation is finally matted enough so that my feet get cold . I do want to mention how they are still waterproof and the tread and soles are still perfectly in tact (considering the extreme abuse). I have used these every winter as my only pair of boots for, beyond snowmaking, everything from shoveling to snowmobiling . I can still use them for light duty like snow shoveling or anything that won't take more than an hour or so. I wasn't surprised to see that they have not changed the style of this boot in any way since the ones I received 7 years ago. This surely is a testament to the quality and longevity of these boots. I intend to buy 2 pairs of these this time in different colors.
Update. I have just read some of the other reviews and noticed some people gave these a bad review because of the lacing being difficult and the achilles strap being useless. I just have to add that these are made of some high quality material and it DOES have a significant break in period. I remember having a hard time with the laces when I first got them. As for the strap, I think the placement is perfect to help with that break in period. It may not tighten enough to feel a difference but I do feel that it helped a lot with creating a crease in just the right spot when walking downhill (which I did a lot of).
Outstanding winter boot
I have been wearing these conquest boots now for 3 years. They are hands down the best boot. Not too heavy not to warm just right, you forget your wearing a winter boot. And I use these to snowshoe and snowmobile so they get used hard
Good boots, a couple of issues
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have been using these boots since November of this year for work, which is at a winter tubing hill, keeping me on my feet in the snow all day. I loved them at first: very waterproof, warm, comfortable and supportive. As time and use has worn on them, the toes especially have broken down a bit. The seam is breaking between the leather and the rubber on both boots. The toes are less stiff than they used to be, making them fold and pinch my toes on almost every step. These are the reasons I am taking them back, and they've only recently risen after two months of 45 hours a week of use. If you plan to use them on weekends for winter hiking and such, they are great boots for the price.
Nice boots for winter weather

I work at a ski resort and am out in the snow all day everyday. These boots are very warm and extremely comfortable and have excellent traction in the snow and ice. My one gripe against these boots is the lacing and the enclosed lace eyelets. It is very difficult to get the bottom of the boots to lace up tightly while the top is almost always tight. Other than that I'm very pleased with these boots. I would recommend some nik wax on them to help ensure the waterproofing qualities on them for a long time.
Great for Snowshoeing !

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Ordered my normal size 10.5, and they fit perfectly. Plenty of room in the toe. Offer much more support than a pac boot if your winter activities have you on your feet a lot. Use them for work and play, absolutely my favorite boot for snowshoeing.
- Gender: Male
I absolutely enjoy these boots. I was kind of skeptical at first but the comfort level that these boots have given me have been above what I have imagined. Although the snow hasn't really hit Afghanistan yet it has gotten cold enough for me to try them out and break them in. If the -40 degree's holds right I will be a winter Sorel boot wearer for life.
do not buy this boot!!
bought this boot from another company...I have done some business with backcountry and they have been great...I do alot of remote hiking in the adirondacks.. first time out with this boot it cracked... I wrote sorel... meanwhile, in hopes of a response, and replacement, I tried to repair the boot.. but the crack got worse .. and sorel responded with a " we will get back to you" ..5 months ago... I have always regarded sorel as a quality boot but after this experience, I not only warn you all not to buy this boot, but to not buy from sorel..I spend lots of money on gear, and believe you get what you pay for ..I will never buy a sorel product again!!
Solid boot, not well thought-out features.
No doubt these boots are comfortable, warm, and well-built. The built in snow gaiter is a cool idea, although unnecessary if you're going to be wearing gaiters anyway (which I definitely would be if I'm traipsing around in deep snow for a while).
I didn't end up keeping mine though because if some real shortcomings in practicality regarding some of the boot's features. Firstly, the "achilles strap" doesn't do much of anything. Secondly, the lacing is a pain. It's really difficult to get the lower part of the lacing to stay as tight as you'd want it to be once you start moving up the lacing. I found myself having to retighten from the bottom to the top several times and even then it wasn't where I'd like it to be (especially in the area that would keep the heal secure). Boots with quick lacing hooks would be much more practical.
Those I see to be shortcomings with the boot itself, but my last reason for not keeping them was that the liner doesn't come out. Sure, that doesn't mean that the boot is inadequate as there are plenty of good boots with built-in insulation, but I'm of the belief now that if you're going to camp in the winter especially, it'd be really nice to have your boot liners in your sleeping bag staying warm so that when you get out of your bag in the morning you're not stepping into blocks of ice. Plus, if your boots happen to get wet on the inside, a removable liner will help them dry out much faster.
Bottom line, while these might be great for shoveling the walk way, building snow men, or working outside in the cold, there are better options if you're going to be camping in the winter, hiking, or snowshoeing.

Saw BootBiz.com has some super wide boots
If you want a Dry and Warm boots with excellent support while being very light in weight, these boots are a must to have in deep snow while hiking or snowshoeing as well as Ice Fishing. I rate these as an A+ in my book. Thanks!
Our family purchased various styles of Sorel boots for our annual Tahoe ski trip this year, and we all found them to be great. My husband loves his Conquest boot. They kept him warm in the snow, and his only comment is that they could have been a bit more supportive, but otherwise they were very comfortable and great for the snow.
Fit good out of box
So far I have been very happy, they fit good and were comfortable right out of the box. Seem to have done fine in terms of waterproofing. Definitely good temp wise into upper single digits.
How do Conquest boots compare to Caribou...
How do Conquest boots compare to Caribou boots
Caribou's are bigger overall. Caribou is an amazing boot for deep snow and cold days. The conquest is a great cold work boot. It is super fit and a snugger fit then the Caribou. Both will keep you warmer then you can dream about!
