Sorel Women's Joan Of Arctic Boot (light metal)
-Have more tread on the bottoms.
-reinforced rubber piece where the leather meets the rubber.
-reinforced stitching (3 rows of stitching) where the rubber and leather meet.
-the leather tabs the d rings are attached to have reinforcing rivets.
-laces are smoother and thicker.
-D rings are thicker and larger.
-the tongue doesn't come out as much (I like this because snow is less likely to get in).
-the liners are just straight up better; all edges are sewn, theres a stretchy front panel that goes up almost as high as the boot.
-the leather just seems thicker and the boots just seem more solid overall.
I guess on the plus side, the Kamiks are more light weight than the Sorels. When trying on the Kamiks I can move my ankle around more easily, but that might be because they're a little too big. When I stand up in the Kamiks I can fit both of my thumbs and a little more at the end of my toe, and the Sorels I can only fit one thumb. I usually wear a 9.5 or a 10 and I ordered the Kamiks in a 10, my suggestion would be to order down if you usually wear a half size. I got the Sorels in a size 9 and they seem to be fine. The Kamiks also made my hands all black after handling them, so be careful if you tuck your pants into them. The Kamik Solitude boots would probably be fine for our weather, but they're not up to par with MY expectations. If you have any questions about either boots feel free to ask :)
My daughter tested them out first - she wears a 7.5 and she wore regular socks and they fit her fine - She drove an ATV for about 45 minutes in 20 degree temp and her feet stayed warm.
The red dye ran down the boot at the beginning - might want to keep them off a good rug/floor at the first couple of wearings.
I wore them with regular socks and shoveled the driveway - I was out there for about 45 minutes in 20 degree weather - feet were toasty the whole time.
Haven't worn them outside for hours on end yet so I really can't comment on them.
They are super cute and were delivered quickly - Happy Happy Happy with my purchase :)
I had high expectations of these Kamik boots..........Canadian company would most certainly make boots capable of keeping my feet warm on the coldest of days.....no? Sadly no, these boots are definitely not built for warmth. I wore them twice and gave them to my niece (she wanted them for fashion not for warmth).
In terms of fit and appearance I would give them a 4, the red isn't quite as vibrant as the picture, but very cute nonetheless. However, I would rate them only as 2 for warmth. Therefore, the 3 star rating is a blend. Before purchasing, assess your needs, they may very well be the boots for you. They may run slightly larger, but certainly not a full size, as other reviewers indicate. I normally wear a size 6 and that's what I ordered. I didn't feel they were too big at all.
I have since purchased a new pair of boots from North Face, uber cute and much warmer, and a new pair from tried and true Lands End. The Lands End is not nearly as cute as the North Face, or even the Kamik, but is much warmer than both. Both the North Face and Lands End are heavier than the Kamik, but I'm keeping both regardless!
-Windproof (yes, some boots let the wind come through..)
-Heavy (I don't know if you can run with this on..)
-True to size (your normal size, not boot size)
-Somewhat ugly (at least for my taste)
Hope this can help you! I'm using it almost every week now thanks to those winter storms... :/
