    Practical and Fashionable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I've worn these boots now in just about every weather condition from ice to snow to flooding waters and they have excelled in every condition. They are very comfortable and warm however I will note that there is a break in period to be expected around the front of the foot but it easily works itself out after about the second or third time wearing them. The features advertised are very well executed and I have no discrepancy on quality. They are waterproofed all the way up and I have worn them very comfortably in 5 degree weather and also 45 degree weather very comfortably in both. The liner can be removed and is easily put back in like its brand new, additionally, the Vulcanized rubber sole works wonders and I can easily get traction in snow.

    Recommendation- Size down a half size and if they are still too large Backcountry will always be willing to ship you another size, really it doesn't get better than backcountry customer service so don't be worried in getting a size too big or too small because they can always help you out like they have helped me.

    Comfort- 10/10 very comfortable and very warm, no complaints from me.
    Cost- 9/10 you get what you pay for, if you want quality that last then you will have to shell out more money. These are pricey however I have seen them go on sale and Backcountry does price match just about anywhere and I highly recommend shopping for the best deal and asking them to price match it so you get their legendary service and free 2 day shipping.
    Practicality- 10/10 It doesn't have to be snowing or freezing for me to find a reason to wear them and they are very good looking. Can use them 3-4 months out of the year and they do their job to a tee so I can find so many practical uses.
    Durability- 10/10 I've walked probably 20-30 miles in hiking and dog walking and they show no signs of wear on them and Sorel is known for the longevity and durability of their products. Doesn't get better than this.
    Value- 10/10 Absolutely great for the dollar when you take into account how long they last and how many different uses you can get out of them. The value gets even better when you can get it on a deal.

    Conclusion- I couldn't recommend these more, sure their are other close competitors but none of them match up to the quality, durability and longevity of Sorel and thats why I am willing to spend $180 on them. Its big money but it pays for itself.

    Great Boots

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 11.5
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    These are not for the casual boot wearing to the grocery store. They are big and intense and SUPER sturdy! We ended up returning these because of how wide and large they were, not what my boyfriend was looking for. But that doesn't mean they arent great boots! Also, before he decided to return them, we realized that you need to go down about .5 size.

    Great Boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 13-14
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 250lbs

    I have had these boots for several years and love them. They are as sturdy and warm as the first day I purchased them. Great for shoveling snow, playing in the snow or keeping your feet warm on cold winter days.

    Sorel FTW

    These Sorel boots have many features that make them great. Easy to lacing up and unlace. Extremely warm liners, soft and comfy. Durable construction while remaining lightweight to wear. They're rated to -40 degree below zero!

    Super warm boots

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

    I love these boots, I am on my second pair since my last ones were worn so much that I put a hole in the toe. They seem to be a little tight when first purchased, but after being worn a few times the liner will pack out a little and really form to your foot.

    Finally got a boot to fit.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 14
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 225lbs

    I wear a size 12 dress shoe and the 13 was too small. The 14 fit perfectly. Should be a good boot for standing on the ice for winter fishing.

    Was once a great boot

    This was a great boot a long time ago. During my college years I worked at ski resorts. So I had a need for a good boot. Sorel's were the answer. They were at the best boot we could get our feet in.
    About 4 years ago, I purchased another pair of Sorels very similar to the boots I had 30 years ago. Both boots developed cracks on the sides where the toes hinge. Furthermore, I barely wore these boots before they developed cracks. In talking with others who are familiar with the brand, they say this happened after Columbia bought the brand. I called Columbia and told them of my experience and they simply said "one year warranty". I wore them less than 50 times before the cracks were leaking water when I stepped in a slush puddle.
    They are a really good boot to try on and very warm in cold climates. ...and they used to wear like armor. However the current formula for the soles is crap.

    Great snow boot!

    I love this boot! It keeps my feet warm and dry and comfortable! They are very high quality and the leather and wool make them timeless!

    Heaven on my feet

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

    These boots are so soft! The Caribou Boot is essential for trekking around in ski towns (Aspen, Jackson, Park City,) and doing your outdoor winter chores. Super warm and did I mention soft? Only negative (if you can call it that) the boots are a bit heavy and can be difficult to drive in.

    Got the Burro color, looks extremely badass. Extremely good quality in this boot. Very happy with my purchase. Runs large, usually wear a 12, went with 11.5 and they are still very roomy.

    Heaven on my feet

    A must have for anyone who lives in snow

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I bought these for my dad as a replacement for his similar Sorel boots he's had for 20+ years and he loves these Caribou wool boots. He says they are super warm and offer great traction when walking on ice or in deep snow. He usually wears a size 11 but opted for a 10.5 because Sorel runs a little big. He wears them with thick wool socks and they fit perfectly. Sounds like I need to buy a pair for myself! :)

    Fit and Warmth

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I was really happy with the overall fit of this boot right out of the box. Being a bit bulkier boot than I'm used to, it fit like a glove. I've used them a few times while out shoveling snow this winter, and never had any issues with my feet staying warm and dry.

    Warm and stylish

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

    Husband says, "Awesomely warm and stylish snow boots. Great for plowing the driveway or going on short hikes. My wife thinks I look awesome in them."

    Got these for my boyfriend to convince him to help me shovel my driveway. It worked way better than I thought. These beefy boots made him feel like he was playing on a beach in Hawaii instead of shoveling my parking spot. Super warm and keep the snow far away from your feet. A bit heavy and clunky, but worth it for the feeling of completely warm toes in the snow!

    Unanswered Question

    I have an old pair of Made in Canada Sorels (bought in 1996 I think) and need new lining inserts. They came with the woolen with silver heat reflection built in and am wondering if you sell those separately? Thanks.

    Unanswered Question

    Is there any chance any 10.5 in tobacco are coming in anytime soon?

    I really want to purchase these in a 12 but almost every size is sold out. When is additional stock coming in?! They are available on the Sorel company website.

    I just got these in the mail today. Size...

    I just got these in the mail today. Size 10 and my toe is at the end, so the 11's would be too big. Will these stretch at all?

    Hi rpep, do you think you could do me a huge favor and measure your foot with a ruler or tape measure, and tell me your size in mm from heel to tip of longest toe?



    And to answer your question, the fleece might give a slight bit, but the rubber of the boot will not. So if the fleece is in the boot snugly, then you're SOL, and should return them for a bigger size.

    Glad the 11s fit. Would you mind letting me know how big your feet are in mm when you have the chance, it would really help me out. Like actual measurement of your foot. Thanks!

    What is the diff of sorel caribou wool...

    What is the diff of sorel caribou wool boot and sorel caribou is it the same leather

    I have a pair of Sorel's (Caribou I think)...

    I have a pair of Sorel's (Caribou I think) which have dark brown, open-grained leather uppers, like a suedy feel, with brown rubber bottoms and the standard felt liner that has the elastic strap across the front. But this boot also has small lace grommets in place of the big D-rings. Any ideas which model these are. I purchased in the early 90s in Meredith NH. Are they perhaps a Canadian model?

    Best Answer

    Answering my own question here...Sorel (Kaufman) CRUSADERS, made in Canada. Nappy brown leather uppers with the first (bottom) 3 eyelets being the usual type of eyelet, small and round and punced into the leather, and the remainder being a smaller d-ring. Anyway...awesome boots...wouldn't trade them for the world.

    I wear a size 10.5 shoe. Would you recommend a size 10 or size 11 in a Sorel Caribou Wool Boot.

    My shoe size is an A width/low volume size 10-10.5. To achieve the best fit for my foot I purchased a woman's size 10(yes = sz 9 men's) boots and added an extra set of felt insoles to hold my feet in place.
    They work very well; no length problems. I would not go larger.

    I have had my leather Caribous for 25 + years. They have used a lot and have held up through hiking, elk hunting, etc. Has quality changed?? Maybe.

    Hi,

    Quick question, for anyone wearing a size 10 or 11 (and if you find the fit snug or loose), what is your exact shoe measurement in mm (it only takes a few seconds and a large ruler or tape measure). And it would really help me out.



    Thanks!
