Great Boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 13-14

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

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 11.5

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!

Awesome Boots

    I bought these boots for my brother and he loves them. He tested them out ice fishing and could not stop raving about how warm his feet were. He even waded through a creek and his feet kept dry.

    Super warm boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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

    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.

    Good overall could see improvements

      These are comfortable and last a while although the soles may wear out faster than wanted

      Keep my toes nice and toasty

      These boots are huge! They keep my toes nice and toasty, and trek though the snow nicely

      great boot

      Very comfortable. Was pretty cold where i live and they were very warm and dry

      Was once a great boot

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 10

      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

      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

      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."

      Snow? What Snow?

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

      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!

      Klompers

        Had these for a few days. They are super warm and comfortable. I am glad I went with these boots over bogs. They just felt warmer.

        Solid and weatherproof

        I use this boot primarily to walk around in the snow - walking the dog, shoveling snow, etc. Very warm boot and heavy construction. I size down about 1/2 size or so. I'd recommend.

        Cozy

            Got these to replace the last pair that I had for 15 years and finally wore out. Looking forward to putting them through the wringer this winter.
