    Great Boot for NYC and Jackson Hole

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: size 10
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 156lbs

    Managed to use these boot during the a blizzard in NYC and days later in Jackson Hole.... They kept snow, rain and slush out. My only criticism is that they run a little big ; you i might a need hiking sock to fill the void...

    Killing pain.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    Where the bottom of the leather and the top of the water proof boot meet rubs my ankle bone something fierce. Enough for me to not use them due to killing pain, and blisters

    all time classic

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

    Sorels are the epitome of classic winter boots...these Caribous are no different. They are warm and bomber. The boots run large. I originally ordered an 8.5 (my normal street shoe size) and ended up exchanging the boots for a 7.5...although still slightly large - I opted to keep the 7.5 to allow for a medium weight sock. No break in required and the liners are soft and feel warm. I look forward to having these for many years to come. Excellent construction and design - definitely 100% waterproof.

    The Original Snowboard Boot

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

    Sorels are my favorite footwear for Pow Surfing. Great board feel, warm, grippy, waterproof. Who needs bindings when you've got fresh pow!

    The Original Snowboard Boot

    First-rate Goods

    • Size Bought: 11.5
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    I bought these to replace a pair of Sorels that I've had for at least twenty years. I usually wear a size 12 shoe or boot. I dropped down a half size -- the 11.5 fit just fine. From the look and feel of them, this pair will last another 20 years. No nonsense boots. First-rate goods!

    Keep the Cold Out!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: US11
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    When I moved to a snow-covered town in the Rocky Mountains I knew I was going to need a pair of serious boots. One recommendation from a colleague was all I needed, and I haven't looked back since then. They're warm, rugged, comfortable and are a great fit.

    Warm boots for the snowy season

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 11
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 110lbs

    Got these for my 14 year old. They worked well while in Whistler. The weather was sleeting and icy he stayed toasty warm with these boots. They do run a bit big however.

    She runs cold!

    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    My girlfriend is always cold, especially her feet and hands. Now im starting to get annoyed by how often she tells me how comfortable and warm her feet are. I guess its better than complaints!

    The classic boot is still great

    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    Recently bought these to replace my old boots. They fit like a classic caribou boot, very comfortable and warm for whatever activity you choose.

    I love this boot for before and after skiing, can't go wrong here!

    Clunky boots with major durability issue

    • Fit: Runs large

    Total junk. I will not buy another Sorel product. Vulcanized rubber blew out during second winter of light use. Sorel's attitude was pretty much, "too bad, item out of warranty." Don's waste you money.

    Clunky boots with major durability issue

    Runs Large, Great Boot.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Make sure to go down a size as these run big, unless you plan to wear really thick socks. These are a classic and you can't go wrong. Can take a beating and will keep your feet warm.

    Warm feet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 12
    • Height: 6'
    • Weight: 185lbs

    My feet have never been warmer. After being in Utah for 1.5 years now, I decided it was time to get some real snow shoes and spare my feet from the snow that would get inside my low-cut hiking boots. These are extremely comfortable and very warm. I wear a size 12-12.5 and the size 12 boot is a little roomy but not too big.

    Great boots! Love them!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 9.5
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I bought these boots for various activities in snow and cold weather (shoveling, sledding, hiking) and they have been awesome. Super warm and dry. They fit pretty big. I ended up exchanging for a full size smaller than normal. Backcountry customer service was very quick and accurate in dealing with my exchange. I will definitely shop from them again.

    Heavy and runs big

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

    These boots are VERY heavy and run much bigger than a standard shoe size. I purchased for my husband who commutes via train and walking about 2 miles every day. Too bulky for the commuter but probably a nice boot for someone running a chair lift!

    Durable

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

    I gave these as a gift to my father who lives in New England, and the biter cold winters are brutal there, and he loves how warm and durable they are. Sorel is a great brand with durability while at the same time being stylish.

    Foot apres all day

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 12
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    If you're looking for some big-ol snow boots that'll keep your toes wiggling warm and your feet dry as a globally warmed desert, these are for you.

    Snowy parks, icy driveway shoveling, hanging out outside in freezing temps = win for these ones.

    They run a little big, but I still got my size (12) so that I have a little extra room for thick socks and easy on/off.

    Cozy + Big

      Got these for my bf and he seems to like them. Tried to get him to order a full size down but we went a conservative half size down instead - they still feel a little big, even with wool socks (though this doesn't bother him; if it were me I would have exchanged for the smaller size). He says they are super cozy. We trudged through snow today and his feet stayed dry and warm. Overall, a keeper, but as other reviewers have said, order a full size down - seriously!

      How true is it that the older Made in Canada version was great and the new Made in China version is stinky?

      It must be true. I bought a pair of the Canadian version over 15 years ago. It's the only snow boot I've owned since then. I live in East Idaho where we have plenty of snow to go around. I've used them for everything from camping with boy scouts, sledding with my kids, and snowmobiling in mountains over 10,000 ft. Best winter boot I've ever owned. Too bad the Chinese have ruined them.

      whats the difference between the wool...

      whats the difference between the wool caribou and just the original? is the entire liner made of wool and the other is thinner?

      The Wool Caribou shares all the same attributes of the regular Caribou except for:
      1.) Wool Caribou has a felt wool inner liner
      2.) Wool Caribou has a full grain leather upper (Regular Caribou utilizes nubuck leather).

      Both share the same temperature rating as well.

      What sorel is best suited for horse backriding and keeping feet warm and dry?

      Any sorel that you wear will keep you warm in very cold days. When you think of sorel think arctic winter days like northern MN or calgary. I would see no reason why these boots wouldn't work for horseback riding.

      Hey Ben,

      Depends on the hike. These boots are heavy, and meant to be worn in really, really cold winter/snow weather. I did a ~3 mile snow hike and they were great, but if I was going longer distances, I'd want something lighter.

      i just ordered yesterday from holland, and i expect my shoes to come in on monday morning, i am very happy with the service so far, i can track where my boots are on the internet on the ups website, whom backcountry is using for the shipping, i payed around 70 us dollars for the shipment, so the total price will be inclusive shipping around 180 us doller, around 135 euro , which is cheaper then in holland, (although they are sold out in holland and according to the shops they will not receive anymore shoes this year and foreseeable future) so i can strongly recomend to order online, although i have to say i havent received them yet and i dont know how much my importduties going to be -if any_ but so far so good

      I was reading reviews for this item on REI. The majority of reviewers claim this boot is different from the sorel boot of yesteryear. Most reviewers claim the boot is not waterproof and the sole is not properly attached to the upper section of the boot. The reviews here seem to be unanimous. I'm confused

      The issue is that there is Caribou and Caribou II. Apparently (and I don't know this for sure), Columbia brought Sorel, and they royally screwed it up. The old Sorel Caribou is what you want. there is a post on the net about a snowmobile rental business that bought 100 pairs to rent out--the owner claimed nearly *ALL* developed cracks and leaks in one season. Maybe bad batch.. but it does seem the Caribou II is to blame.

      do these work with crampons?

      No. While you can wear snowshoes with this, you definitely should not try and wear crampons, there isn't anyway for them to be anchored to the boot. Also this boot itself while fine for trekking through the snow is not designed to be used in a "mountaineering" environment, not nearly enough support.

      I have a pair of Sorel Caribou boots that I have owned for over 30 years. Unfortunately, the time has come to replace the liners and I am having difficulty finding the right liner to fit this boot. Can anyone provide a suggestion on which liner to replace the old one with? The ones on the Sorel site seem to be very different from the ones that came with the boot many years ago.

      Thanks,

      Dave

      I do not have an answer. However, I am in exactly the same boat as Dave. I have also had my Sorel Caribou boots for over 30 years! I would appreciate knowing where I could purchase liners for these. Thanks, Gerard.
