    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

    Large and in charge

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: .5 down from normal

    These boots are extremely warm and perfect for any kind of wet/cold winter conditions. I wear mine to and from skiing everyday and ice fishing. Even in slush while ice fishing they stay cozy and dry. They run large be sure to size .5-1 size down depending on how thick of socks you plan on wearing.

    Haven't worn them out yet, but...

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 6.5

    Haven't worn them out yet, but...I LOVE THEM!!! I got a size 6.5 in black..normally I am a 7.5 in Nike, Fila, Roxy, and Uggs. I read the reviews, so I downsized & they fit PERFECTLY! I got them because my sister purchased some the previous year and they survived the Wisconsin winter. They are super cute & I cannot wait to wear them next year!!

    Fashion over function

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

    I bought two of these boots for myself and husband. They are warm and comfortable other than it looks nice.

    I wouldn't recommend these boots if you are going be outside long especially if you do ice fishing or snowmobiling. I bought it specifically for ice fishing, and it wouldn't keep warm toes warm no matter how many thermal socks I had on. I'm all about reviews and quality so I found one that suites my need "Sorel Glacier XT"

    Sweet winter doggs!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Size 10 (1 size up)

    Got these for the wife, after growing tired of hearing about her old ill fitted boots. I had bought a pair of sorel slippers years ago and bought a second pair just months ago from backcountry because I loved em so much. I knew that their snow boots had to be top notch as well. I was not disappointed at all because of the soothing comfort my ears recieved when the ole' lady wore em' in a recent storm, and I didn't hear any bitchin' about cold wet feet. The only thing is that she has to do now is bring a pair of sneakers with her to work on snowy days because they are so warming that she would roast all day wearing them indoors. I ordered a size up for her and I see them fitting perfectly but she said that maybe just a half size bigger would have done......cough.... yea right ..in my youth I sold shoes and like Al Bundy says lady you ain't a size 7 more like an eleven! Go a full size up like every one says cause she isn't going to want to send em' back.

    HUGE

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    The boots are nice and warm, although I never got the chance to wear them outside before returning. They are a super heavy and clunky boot. They run VERY large. I always wear an 8.5 which is what I ordered and I would guess I could have gone down to 7.5. The weight of the boot is the reason I didn't exchange them. Looking for something a bit lighter.

    Good looking, safe stepping.

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

    These do, indeed, run big. Originally started with a 7.5, which I'm usually between a 7.5 and an 8. But had to size down to a 7 in these. I've found this to be the case with most sorels, they run a bit big, but it's necessary if you ever plan on wearing heavy socks. I love the traction on these, they're tricky to slip in, even on mad black ice, which we've had a lot of this winter. The color is beautiful (I got the buff canvas) and oh-so-versatile. I like how mellow the wool lining around the top is. It keeps them warm without making them too fluffy at the top.

    Very nice boots but run big

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

    I bought these looking for a sturdy winter boot I could keep for years. The quality is great, they look great but they are too big. I had to return them and will be trying the Carnival as the reviews for those seemed to run about size or even smaller.

    Este invierno va a ser FANTASTICO

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

    Son muy comodas, las uso cada vez que voy a skiar, no se resvalan son muy comodas y calientes, algo que en el invierno no me puedo quejar.

    Nice boots but more for casual wear

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

    I ended up returning these boots because they weren't quite what I was looking for for snowshoeing (a little too bulky/heavy), but I'm writing the review mainly because I disagree with the general opinion that they run big. I think they run a half size small! They are cute though and the gray color is really nice. If I needed casual boots I think they would be great.

    Happy Winter Feet

      Is it possible to have too many Sorels? I don't think so. These are a perfect addition to my super tall Catherine the Great Sorels. These are a little shorter and the insulation and warmth is just perfect as I jump around in snow piles. My foot is a 7.5-8 but I size down to 7 in Sorels

      Disappointing Customer Service

      • Fit: Runs large

      Received these boots as a Christmas gift & they were TOO BIG! Called Customer Service to see if I could exchange for a smaller size & was told NO since they were purchased thru Amazon. My only option was to return them for a refund (again, they were a gift) & then purchase a new pair. The Backcountry return/exchange policy on Amazon states:
      Sometimes you need to exchange a product for something else—it happens. Exchanges only require a few minutes and an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number.
      That is not the case. Spoke with 2 different customer service reps & neither would help me with my simple exchange request. I love the boots, but would like a pair that fits...didn't think that was too much to ask for...guess I was wrong! I will NOT be purchasing from Backcountry again! Very disappointing.

      I apologize for this experience, Jill, and would like to know how we can make it up to you. If you reach out to me directly I can facilitate the exchange and also try to determine who you spoke with here at Backcountry, since that is NOT our policy. Please give me a shout at your earliest convenience.

      Hello, Warmth and Comfort

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: Runs large

      These were a Christmas gift for my girlfriend. She's not previously worn Sorel's, but has the coldest feet and is stoked about the warmth. She says they are perfect for walking around town, short dog walks/hikes, and dog park trips. They offer plenty of room inside the boot, but also run a bit large in size by a good half size (even while wearing winter socks).

      Cute but not functional

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 7

      I wore these for one week to my gardening job. On day three, after walking through slushy snow for about 3-5 minutes, my socks were damp on both feet. My feet were cold the rest of the day and I requested a return- thank backcountry for having great customer service. It is so disappointing! I needed to wear these to work, so I dried the liners in the clothes dryer. On dry but very cold days, my feet were OK most of the day, with cold settling in after some hours outdoors. They are not as warm as they could be. In terms of fit, I have narrow feet and there was a lot of room inside, which was great for wearing my regular thick socks. The extra room didn't bother me in terms of comfort, but it may be better for my knees to wear a more tight fitting boot. In regards to overall size and appearance, this is a large clunky looking boot but looks normal where I work and looks normal worn with snow pants or all weather bib pants.

      Wifey loves them

      I bought these for my wife and so far so good. They run a bit large but once she was able to figure out the correct size, no complaints. Super warm! Perfect for quick grocery store runs or when she helps with shoveling the driveway. Gotta make her earn her keep.

      What size do you recommend getting for an 8.5?

      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?

      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!

      Are you expecting the grey boots in a size 8 anytime soon?

      Are you guys planning on getting any more of these in the cinnamon color size 9.5? The entire internet seems to be sold out.

      Will you be getting more size 6 in buff color? Thx.

      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 of these in Cinnamon or Buff in size 7?

      When will you get more sizes in Cinnamon? specifically size 8-9?

      Will the Shale be getting restocked any time soon? I need a size 10!
