Here's what others have to say...


When timbs aren't classy enough...

    ...I strap these bad boys on. They are roomy enough to handle a variety of sock options and classy enough to hang out and trade stock options. The soles are burly and grip snow/ice like a champ. Not for hiking.

    These boots are as you say in the USA Awesome! At present in the UK, these winter boots of quality are in vogue with the trendy London set. I bought them from Backcountry because they were massively cheaper than purchasing them in the UK, even with the postage which ended up at $49.00 to UK. I cannot believe that I saved �70.00 by buying USA. I went for the dark brown boots, which I have polished using the 'spit and polish' method, as used by the British Army to obtain a high polish. You can straight away recognise that the quality of the leather is premium, otherwise the "spit and polish' method would not work well! Do not hesitate in getting these boots. Although the weather in the UK (apart from Scotland, North of UK) is not too bad at present, I wear my boots to go watch Peterborough United Football team, who I support. I can tell you, they keep my feet as warm as toast! Get them, you won't regret it.

    I dig it...but watch out for the color discrepancy

      There's not much to not like about Sorel boots in general. They are typically burly in construction with style to boot (pun intended). The Mad Boot follows the same tradition with stylish upgrade of a classic winter boot, with rich burnished leather and classic snowboard boot like outsole. It's also pretty darn comfy. Only design feature I'm not quite sold on is the way the laces are setup...the lengthier lace hooks make it a bit of a pain to adjust the lace lengths...but it's something I can live with. One thing to watch out for is the color. I can't vouch for others, but I got them in Chipmunk, and the color on Backcountry's website is a bit off (but the ones on Sorel's site are a bit off too...although there is one large picture of it with a guy wearing it that's pretty close). The "brown" is couple of shades darker than it looks on the website. The color of this particular boot is pretty difficult to generate accurately in pictures; it's very tough to get the white balance correct. I'm posting 3 pics, and the 2nd and 3rd pic is as accurate as I could get to the actual color of the chipmunk model. The first one is off in color, but shows you the whole boot in hopefully better detail than the one on the website. Also, due to the nature of the leather finishing process, one batch will look a bit different from the next in color, shade, and texture.

      Few questions for you.....

      Does the boot keep your feet dry in the slushy snow?

      Since they are leather do they scratch easily?

      Is the size of the boot pretty accurate , to say wearing a nike shoe?

      It's pretty good under moderate snow conditions. I'd say under heavy snow, you should go for Caribou or similar. To me, this is a good pair to take on a ski trip to walk about town where you are expected to see a little slush and ice - but not for anything deep. Hard to answer the leather questions, it's all relative. What is good is that it's burnished leather, hence already has that aged distressed look, so minor scratches shouldn't impact the look of the boots. Size is pretty accurate in length, probably wider than typical nikes. Also keep in mind how thick a sock you'll be rocking in these. I myself wear thicker wool socks when I'm wearing these, so I size up by 1/2.

      What sort of lining do these boots have?...

      What sort of lining do these boots have? Will they keep your feet toasty on a normal urban winterday with minus degrees but no extreme activities involved (perhaps just standing still in the snow watching the kids build snowmen..)? Thanks from Norway.

      These boots are leather lined with no insulation. I would wear a heavy wool sock with these boots to make your nubs feel toasty on a normal urban winter day with minus degrees in downtown Oslo.

      According to the website, BC are not able to ship to Ukraine, unfortunately. A list of countries available for shipping can be found in the help topics on the main site.

      Will these get damaged in snow?

      Will these get damaged in snow?

      The uppers on these are naturally water resistant burnished leather. Which by definition provides rubbed-off appearance with variation in shades. You may see some change in shades with snow and normal wear and tear, but the beauty of burnished leather is that you really can't tell any minor damage because it already has that "stressed" look to them. I've had Sorel boots for 3+ years that still look pretty good, so they are pretty durable.
