First Snow Boots in Over a Decade

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

I've lived in snowy Utah nearly my entire life, for whatever reason I haven't owned a dedicated pair of snow boots since I was a kid electing to wear leather work boots while wondering why my feet are always so damn cold.

Now I'm 32 and reminded that having the right tool for the job makes all the difference in the world. I'm new to world of Sorel, but my girlfriend sings their praises so I made the plunge on my first pair. Wow! What a joy to be out in the cold and snow and still be able to feel your toes.

Fit and construction feel excellent, but admittedly I only have a couple days on them so far. They are a very big boot when you account for all the insulation so you may feel like you have clown feet the first time you put them on - but it's a small price to pay for staying warm and dry.

Great boot, wrong fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 9.5

Great quality boot but sizing runs large. 99% of my shoes and boots are 9.5. I ordered a 9.5 and there was a good 1.25 inches from my the end of my toe to the tip of the boot. Returned and ordered a 8.5.

Sorel Caribou Wool Boot

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10.5

I returned these boots. Sadly, Sorel is not what it use to be. There is no footbed padding in these. It felt as if my feet were directly on the sole of the boots. My 25 yr. old Sorels had ample padding on the bottom of the liners, and kept my feet warm in temps. to -35. I just couldn't see these boots keeping my feet warm while ice fishing without the insulation under my feet. Back country has been great to work with. I will order from them again. Just not Sorels.

Sorel Caribou WL: Flawless

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

  • Size Bought: 10.5

Beautiful boot. Warm, waterproof and heavy duty. I hope this boot lasts as long as my grandfathers 1982 caribou's. So far they are living up to their expectations! When researching size, I found a bunch of mixed reviews. I wear a size 11 mens, I purchased a 10.5 and they fit perfect. I'd advise to order one 'half' size down from your original shoe size. I hope your boots bring you as much happiness as these had brought me.

Practical and Fashionable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 10

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. Size down.

    Got half a size down and fits great. Super warm boots.

    Great Boots

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 11.5

    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

    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

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

        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

        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!

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

        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

        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! :)
