I wear them while taking my dog for her daily walks and can clomp through any snow drift without fear of cold feet.

This will be the last pair of snow boots you will ever need to buy though because Sorel's are amazing.

I bought them to keep my feet warm and dry in the cold and snow, and they do both very well.

These 10" high winter boots set the standard for basic cold weather boots in snowy conditions. They're probably the boot most commonly worn by locals in snowy Western mountain towns.

But be advised they do not have a lot of lateral stability in the sole of the boot. That is to say, the rubber bottoms tend to twist sideways making them, in my opinion, unsuitable for anything other around town use and possibly some work situations. The twisting motion makes traveling off beaten paths, especially climbing hills or side hilling, more difficult and tiring. My seven year old (Canadian made) Sorel Caribou models have somewhat thicker and probably more water resistant leather uppers, but the current (Chinese made) Sorels seem to have more advanced combination synthetic and wool felt liners and apparently much-needed additional underfoot insulation.

These boots have a cool look with the faux shearling collars but their relatively modest height means you will need to wear gaiters to keep out snow if you leave beaten paths. Felt lined pacs are typically the warmest boots for the bucks and the liners can be taken out to dry. I've washed my Sorel liners on gentle cycle using wool-friendly soap with excellent results and spraying some Armorall (used to perk up rubber and plastic in cars) on the rubber bottoms keeps them looking great as well.

Recommended to anyone who wants a warm, foolproof, traditional looking boot to wear in around-town or to cold weather outdoor events, keep in the car for emergencies and possibly wear to work or riding snow machines in really cold weather.

ordered the Caribou-Elderberry [5m].....my true size is 6 1/2 [running shoe 7]...after reading reviews on a few sites. 80% of the women reviewing said they ordered 1/2 to 1 full size smaller was best. And though i haven't had the chance to wear these in snow YET, the 5m DID in fact fit me perfectly - with my SmartWool PhD Ski Medium socks on!! Was snug but had room for my toes to wiggle around - and i have a wide foot where my toes are. the boot is bulky so if you go true to size......they'd definitely look HUGE on you. i think the trick is.....if you have a "fuller" foot [not in length but girth/width] in whatever size you fit, consider just going to the next SMALLER size [Sorel Caribou don't come in 1/2 sizes]...so if you're 6 1/2 go down to a 6............this will still give you LOTS of wiggle room and probably allow you to wear super thick socks. otherwise, if you've got an average to slender foot, might want to try a full size smaller................... Boot construction - well made....and they look so cute on.

We just ordered a pair for my wife because she likes my 10-yr.-old pair so much. The new ones look about the same but as soon as you put them on you realize that they are not the same. The details in the construction are not there. The materials are not as robust. Some reviewers already commented on the new boots' lack of durability. My 10-yr.-old pair were "hand made in Canada" and the new ones are made in China. I doubt the new pair will look as good as mine in 10 years.

I read on-line that Columbia Sports wear bought the brand name and closed the Canadian factory. The new ones cost just as much as the old Canadian ones but Sorel now advertise in Vogue!!! It is sad that Columbia closed up the original factory and move the business overseas.

I bought these boots for a month of field research in Barrow, Alaska (high in the Arctic). They were definitely on the roomy side, but that was a plus since it meant I could wear two pairs of warm socks. Other users have complained about poor ankle support, but I didn't have a problem with that, and I was hauling coolers full of ice cores around and digging in the snow! Yet others have bemoaned their clunky appearance. To these folks, I say, "Honestly, did you anticipate going out for a night on the town in these boots? They're for keeping your feet warm and dry, not for dancing!"

My main complaint with the Caribou is that the "rated to -40'F" claim is absolutely bogus. For my research, I was out on the ice and in the snow for much of the day at temperatures between 0-30'F, and the only way I could prevent my toes from quickly going numb was to cram a handwarmer in the toe of each boot! It wasn't the most comfortable solution, but it was better than the alternative. The liners also have a tendency to come out when you take the boot off--not the end of the world, but still annoying.

I'd recommend these boots if you need something to keep your feet dry and relatively warm in the snow, but only if you'll be wearing them for an hour or so at a time.

I just moved to NYC, and after our first blizzard, I realized I needed snow boots. I browsed, read the reviews, and decided on these boots. This was one of the best decisions of my life! These boots are warm! I can step in any puddle, in any snow embankment, and even walk across an inch of ice. I highly recommend them!

I live in metro-detroit and ordered this boot right before the deep freeze set in about a month ago. My feet stayed wonderfully warm and dry even in 8 inches of snow, and I wore them EVERYWHERE. The only reason I can't give them 5 stars is because if you walk around as much as I do (college student and retail employee) you'll find that your legs are actually sore because these suckers weigh so much.
