Lighter, more flexible than Sorels,
This review is from: Northside Men's Back Country Waterproof Pack Boot (Apparel)
About a week ago I originally bought a pair of size 9 Sorel Caribous (I wear a size 9 1/2 in virtually every shoe). I wore them around the house for a day and decided they were about 1/2 size too small for me, as my right big toe was up against the end of the boot. They were also rather stiff in the sole and quite heavy.
I tried on a pair of these Northside boots, also a size 9, and found them to fit me better, were lighter and more flexible when walking. I wore them this past Saturday for a football game which included tailgating on wet grass for about 3 1/2 hours, then standing in a light rain during the game (temp in the mid-40s). My feet stayed warm and dry.
I'm happy with my Northside boots and expect they will perform well when/if snow falls here in the northwest.
