    Treat your hoofs right.

    If your feet were evolved for the cold, harsh temperatures of the tundra, then you wouldn't need the Sorel Women's Caribou Boots, which would be unfortunate, considering how classic and cozy these boots are. Being about as classic as they come, the Caribou is one of the original offerings in Sorel's line and remains largely unchanged to this day. Boasting a seam-sealed leather upper that's bolstered by a vulcanized rubber shell and a wool felt liner for reliable warmth, this boot is burly enough to withstand the harshest temperatures north of the 49th parallel and stylish enough to wear out for après drinks.

    • Sorel's original winter-proof boot designed for everyday wear
    • Seam-sealed leather upper is waterproof and durable
    • Vulcanized rubber shell increases durability
    • Removable wool blend liner ensures warmth in cold climates
    • Bonded felt frost plug insulates against ice and snow
    • Aggressive AeroTrac sole ensures traction on snowy surfaces
    • Sorel comfort rates this boot to -40F
    • Item #SRL0004

    Comfy and Cute

      I work at a ski resort and use them everyday! They keep my feet warm and dry all day long. They are slightly on the bigger side but great for thicker socks. I recommend these durable good looking boots to anyone.

      They really do run big

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      I read the reviews where other customers say to order down a size and I ordered down a 1/2 size. They were huge and looked like men's boots. I wear a size 9.5 normally. I ordered a size 9. I could honestly wear a size 8. They're wonderful boots and I really wanted to keep them!

      Super warm

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Love these boots! They are toasty warm, seriously toasty. They keep me dry and fit really comfortably. They are quite bulky though, so if that isn't something you're into or like the style of, I would go for the slim caribou. I am usually not into bulkier looking boots, but these are still really stylish and a classic you just can't go wrong with.
      They fit really big so I would size down! I usually wear a 7.5/8 and went with a 7 in these... probably could have gone with a 6.5 still comfortably though too.

      Warm but big

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The boots are great! I walk to and from class in my boots and wear them for outdoor events. My feet have not gotten cold despite the cold Michigan winter. I am glad I choose these boots.
      They do run big, I wear a size 8.5 in all my shoes - I read that they run large so I ordered them in a size 8 and ended up exchanging them for a 7.5 which fit great. So get the boots - but order a full size smaller than normal

      Great for this winter

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Bought these even tho we’ve had warm winters last two years....in the nick of time! Very warm, don’t slip, much better fit than my old snow boots, I ordered a full size down from my normal based on recommendation and fit great. Exceeding happy!

      Stompin Boots

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've lived in Utah my whole life and have never had my own pair of snow boots. well NOT ANYMORE. these things are amaaaaaaaaazing. so warm and comfortable. they definitely run large so SIZE DOWN. I normally wear a size 7 and i had to get a size 6 for them to fit. They are a bit clunky but, that's what I was after. they are sturdy and could handle any type of snow. If you want a more slim or delicate snow boot, these are not for you. If you want to kick snow's butt and have warm feet doing it. get these!

      BEST BOOTS

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Say goodbye to cold feet when you put these on. My feet stay toasty warm and dry no matter what snow or cold weather activity I am doing. I knew that they ran large so I went a half size down. I could have probably gone a whole size, but since these are winter boots I knew I would be wearing thick sock with them all the time. Overall these are the best winter boots I have owned.

      Great boots!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought these for my sister and fiancé now and they both love them! They say they're warm, comfortable, true to size, and they're cute! What's not to love?!?!

      Love these boots!

        These are so warm! I love that the liner can be taken out and washed. They are made very well, and are very comfortable. I wear a size 9 and ordered in a size 9. They fit well with wool socks.

        HEAVY duty

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Love how warm my feet stay in these boots, but not going to lie, they are a little on the heavy side in weight. Doesn't bother me, but just noticed the extra weight while walking around in them. I also loaned them to a friend who went on a mild snow hike/walk with friends and she loved them too.
        I wear a 7.5 in everyday shoe, and still wore 7.5 in these boots.

        LOVE THEM

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I bought a pair last year for myself - normally wear a 7.5 and got a 6.5...I live in Wisconsin, and this boot definitely lasts through the frigid winter. I wear them almost every single day.
        This year I got one for my mom for Christmas. SHE LOVES THEM!! She is normally a 6.5 and fit in a size 6. The tan ones are not only stylish, but obviously work through the cold winter as well. We love these boots!

        stellar boot, fits true to size

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        warm, high quality, super cute. I ordered a half size down as many reviews mentioned, but they were too small with everyday socks. So I recommend ordering your true size, especially if you plan to where thick socks.

        True to size for 6.5 to 7 foot

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

        I wear size 6.5 sandals and 7 shoes. Based on the reviews saying slightly large and very large I ordered these boots in a 6.5 Black. Big mistake! They were snug. I will be reordering for a 7 to be comfortable with toe space for warmth. I didn't think these were nearly as heavy as other reviewers suggested. The boot weight is normal for a pair of winter snow boots.

        Warm and dry with a confident feel!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        These are great boots my family has been wearing Sorels since before I was born. My daughter and I both got a pair and she is in love with hers. I like mine a lot however as someone who has RA it is a bit tough getting them on and off. I finally took the liner out put that on first and then put the boot on. Getting them off is the hard part for me. I have to sit on the steps and use the step below as a boot jack. So for anyone with physical limitations be mindful and have the proper aids to assist you. Once on these boots rock! Feet are warm and dry with lots of toe room. I live on a steep incline and never slipped once and felt confident walking up and down from the garage and back.

        THE ABSOLUTE BEST!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        If your on the fence about getting these don't be! These boots are warm, cute, comfy and classic. I have no complaints I love everything about them. I got an 8 even though I ussually wear a 7.5 so that I could wear them with thick socks!

        A warm workhorse of a boot!

        These boots are my go to for winter footwear. I've had a few pairs of boots and these are by far the warmest. They fit larger than the Joan of Arctic, and they've also held up much better. They do run large, as I normally wear a W's 8 or 8.5 and the 8's in these, are still slightly big on me.

        What size do you recommend getting for an 8.5?

        Hi Erin,

        I would always urge people to get the size that they normally wear here. The general consensus on these particular boots is that they run a half size large so you may want to go a little bit smaller.

        If you have any other questions, please let me know.

        Thanks,

        I have poor circulation in my feet (like a diabetic). My feet get extremely cold and hard to walk when they get cold. I want to know if these boots will help?

        Unanswered Question

        Hi,
        Could you please advise how much would the shipping costs and taxes for the Caribou boots be to the United Kingdom?

        do these have a pretty wide toe box? the fact that they run a large is really encouraging, but finding something workable is an absolute chore since I'm a completely flat-footed size 12 with a bunion ):

        You're right, andrew; bunion-owners rejoice! I went ahead and bought a pair since winter's coming quickly and I didn't want to risk them being out of stock; not only are they wide enough to wear comfortably, but there's room for an orthotic as well if I find I need it!

        I live in Boston, and the sidewalks get pretty icy, are these boots slip proof on cobblestones?

        Anny,



        These would be a great boot. I wouldn't call any boot 100% slip proof since Boston can often have black ice, etc.



        Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!

        Hi Anne,

        Not sure if you've purchased your boots yet, but I have had a pair of Caribous for 4 years while living in Minneapolis. I needed something to protect my feet during brutal Minnesota winters, where I walked a lot. While I am totally happy with their warmth, the soles are definitely not slip proof. I actually had to invest in a pair of micro crampons for mixed snow/ice situations (the kind with little metal studs in the frame, not actual spikes). I bit the dust more than once on icy sidewalks before I got them. It's easy to think that because they are so bulky, they will protect you from the slippery stuff, but my experience has been to take the further precaution of the crampons.



        Unrelated, but the reason I'm on the site searching for a new pair is that the outer rubber material started to crack where my toes bend, at the same point on both boots, almost like they had dry rot? Unfortunately Sorel customer service said that they could do nothing about the situation because the boots were over 3 years old, and alas the place that I purchased them from was not Backcountry, with its wonderful return policy. I'm caught, because they are incredibly warm. But be advised that the outer rubber has the potential to crack over time.

        Hi there! Checking in to see if an item is on back order - looking to purchase a pair of the Shale grey boots in size 8.5! Any chance of getting them this season? Thanks!

        Will you be getting more of these in the Shale/Black color? I need an 8.5!

        cvi105700559,



        We do have a vendor order on the way to replenish our inventory. Shale/Stone 8.5 is part of that order. I would expect to see if available for purchase by the end of the month or beginning of February. Keep checking the page at least once a day.

        Do these run small? I wear a size 11 or 11.5 and I want to make sure they are not too tight.

        They run large!! I usually wear a 9 and ordered an 8 and they fit perfectly, even with a little bit of a thicker sock. Keep in mind with wear the liner will start to stretch out and will give you a little more space. I highly recommend you get the size down, the 9 would be huge on me.

        Will you be getting more sizes of this...

        Will you be getting more sizes of this boot in soon?
