    Classic Snow Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 9
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    First things first, these boots will run large, so be sure to go one full size down from your normal boot size. With that out of the way, these boots are incredibly warm and look great to bat. They're not too rugged for hiking, but they're perfect for my day to day needs. After all, these boots have influenced the winter boot market for decades and for good reason.

    warm and dry

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 13
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 250lbs

    These boots are warm and keep your feet dry. Well made and gives you a firm sturdy traction on slippery snowy weather conditions. I wanted a pair of actual sores for 30 years.

    Heavy

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 11.5
    • Height: 6'4"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    These boots run probably a full size too large and they are much heavier than the listed 1 lb 2 oz (more like 2 lbs 5 oz EACH).

    Good Boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    The main issue is sizing as everyone else says. It's a hassle But I suggest just ordering multiple sizes and returning what you don't need. Solid 1-1.5 size down. Other than that, great boots at a reasonable price

    The Best of the Best

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    A classic, warm, highly functional winter boot. Great for digging out the car, shoveling the driveway, taking the dog out, or wearing around on a snowy day. They are definitely big and bulky so would not recommend these for recreating but I don't think many people buy these with that in mind. Runs about a full size large so order down.

    Great boots.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I have not used these much, just got them to replace my 20+ year old former pair. They worked well spending hours tromping around in weather in the teens, on ice and snow.

    So toasty warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.0

    These are my go-to winter boots! So warm and toasty to trek through the winter elements! Also very stylish! I will never wear another type of winter boot. These Sorel's are a classic.

    Warm and Solid

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    These are a great solid winter boot, I use them for driveway shoveling and driving up to the resorts. I wouldn't say these are great for any extended hiking as they are quite heavy and stiff. They do run big. I went with a size 10 and I typically wear 10.5-11

    Size buys

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Sorel still makes it count! If you know Sorel you know to buy a size smaller so that is the only issue. Besides that this thing is toasty! You won't be slipping around and wiggling your toes to get that blood flowing, good socks will do the trick as well as the lining. I only wish there was a way to fix the hooks when they come off. These things are durable and my dad's had a pair for YEARS but the hooks came off so maybe there could be a fix kit... idk. If you're hesitant, just send it. These are worth it.

    So warm

    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    Really warm and comfortable. Like everyone else has said go down a full size. I normally wear 12 and got 11 and they fit great, maybe still a little loose but not bad when tied up tightly

    These boots were made for walkin'

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10.5
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    In cold frigid temperatures, like when your shoveling your driveway before work or taking the dog for walk after the storm. I use them everyday in winter, and especially love throwing them on at the car after a long day in ski boots.

    Warm and Durable

      Love these boots! I’ve worn them in rainstorms and deep snow and my feet have never gotten cold or wet. The sizing is true to size and they’re incredibly comfortable. I’ve owned them for years and will continue to buy Sorel in the future

      Sorel is FOR REAL

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      Comfy boot, I probably need to figure out the right sock wear, my feet sweat in them.
      It hasn't snowed yet, so I am excited to check that out. Stay tuned!!

      warmest boot on planet earth

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 10/5
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      these are the most ridiculously burly snow boot you'll find. The classic look has been around so long for a reason, because you really can't design something better. Tough waterproof leather and rubber with a removable liner for easy drying and cleaning (your feet will sweat no matter what) so if you're looking for something to just wear at the bar find something lighter, cus these are meant for some real snow trudging. Runs big so if you don't plan on wearing two pair of thick wool socks order a full size down

      Seriously something off with the sizing!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 8.5

      Great pair of quality made boots. Even at size 8.5, it's still a size too big. Intended purpose of use is for ski resort so not too bothered about the loose fit. as others have said, probably best to size down.

      Nice but order down 1-2 sizes!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 11
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 220lbs

      Nice boots.
      Feels nicely built and nice traction though nothing helps much on ice.
      It's heavy and bulky but relatively warm. Still feel some cold in the toe area even with thick wool or fleece socks.
      The sizing is Terribly OFF and Sorel management should be smacked!
      You WILL NEED to order 1-2 sizes SMALLER than your normal size.
      Another problem... it's hard to judge what size without trying them on.
      I wear Men's 11.5 but ordered size 11 as NO 1/2 sizes were available (then).
      It's still ROOMY and fits well with 2 double layers of wool/fleece socks.. 2 LAYERS!
      IF I had known, I would've ordered 10 1/2 but NONE was available!
      I tried size 10 but it was TOO Snug even with regular socks.
      Whoever designed these boots did a HORRIFIC job at it!
      I also use orthotic inserts and it's still too roomy. Will have to use replacement insoles to see if that makes a difference.
      Decent boots. Waterproof lower half but oil the leather tops to keep it waterproof and keep the leather soft.
      LOUSY SIZING!
      Columbia bought out Sorel Canada and now the boots are made in China.

      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.

      Heyyy :) I was thinking of purchasing these and wanted to ask if these are good for hiking?

      Best Answer

      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 was reading reviews for this item on...

      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.

      Howdy,

      Going to buy a pair for the hockey rink. I wear a 10 - 10.5 in sneakers and shoes. Should I buy a 10?

      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.

      What about people that are a solid size?...

      What about people that are a solid size? I'm exactly an 11. I've never worn a 10.5 and an 11.5 is always too big. Do I really go down a full size to 10?
