Sorel Caribou Snow Boots

Sorel Caribou Snow Boots–nothing beats this classic snow boot

When I think of the ultimate snow boot, I think of Sorel Caribou boots. Growing up in Colorado, every member of my family had a pair for those snowy days. My parents have had the same pair of Sorel boots ever since I can remember, and I’ve had the same trusty pair of boots since my feet stopped growing nearly a decade ago. Sorels are not only great at keeping your feet warm and dry in the snow, they also have good traction, making walking in the snow a whole lot easier as well. My Sorels stay in Colorado for when I’m back at home visiting my family, and when Portland got nearly unprecedented levels of snow this week, I missed my favorite pair of snow boots a whole lot.

Sorels are more than just a family tradition, however. And, while these boots may be pricey, they are well worth the investment. Sorels are high quality and last for years, keeping your feet toasty through those winter months and snowy days year after year. The Sorel Caribou is also rated to keep your feet warm up to -40 degrees F, meaning your feet will be happy even if you are in the Alaskan tundra. The rubber and leather combination, along with the sherpa lining is effective at keeping snow and away from your feet, keeping your feet dry even in the slushiest conditions.
