2.0 out of 5 stars The Cankle Makers
By J Christopher Campbell on November 19, 2017
I like these boots, but they are huge. And they are super fat in the ankles for no reason. No human has feet shaped like this. I wear a size 12. Bought a 12 and I was swimming in them. So I returned the 12's and got an 11.5 (all sizes US men). Still huge. And mostly huge around the ankles. I get that you might want thick socks (although I want wool lined boots so I don't have to wear such thick socks), but unless you have three pair of socks wrapped around just your ankles, these boots will not fit well.

I will say these guys are quite warm. Too bad the fit is so terrible. I wish they sold ladies boots in men's sizes, the Sorel and Merrel boots in lady styles seemed to be shaped like human feet, rather than these which are designed for more of a wookie fit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hobnail sole pattern is dangerous - lacks traction on packed snow or ice.
By Dr. Dave on November 27, 2015
As you can see in the attached photo, I have gotten a lot of good use out of my old Sorel boots over the past 30+ years (battered gray boot on right), and their Vibram lug sole pattern provides excellent traction in virtually all snow and ice conditions that I have encountered in the midwest and the Colorado mountains. The uppers were getting to be pretty worn, so I decided to buy a replacement pair. Sorel apparently doesn't make the Vibram lug pattern sole anymore, so I ordered the Sorel Men's Caribou Wool Boot,Burro, 9.5 M which only comes with their hobnail sole pattern (brown boot on left). Nice looking, fits well, is very comfortable and warm, and I can snow shoe all day in them.

BUT, I agree with PJC that they are "Definitely not good on ice or ground covered with a light cover of snow". The new hobnail sole pattern affords virtually no traction, which I quickly realized and have relied on my old gray beaters and a new pair of Men's Kamik® Alborg WATERPROOF Pac Boots, Tan that I have recently purchased, both of which have a lug sole pattern with excellent traction.

I am writing this review after mistakenly wearing my new hobnail Sorels to walk the dog early this morning, encountered a patch of packed snow covered by a light layer of fresh snow and suddenly had both feet slip out from underneath me to land flat on my back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Le top de la botte de neige!
Reviewed in France on February 13, 2019
Quel bonheur ces bottes! On paye le prix, même si elles sont un peu moins cher qu’en magasin mais la qualité est là! Cette version WL avec le cuir pleine fleur est sublime et très confortable.

Et j’ai découvert que ces bottes comporte un chaussons amovible. Donc très pratique pour sécher l’humidité à l’interieur après une grande journée de marche.

Côté pointure, je chausse habituellement du 45, mais mes grosses chaussures Frye que je porte quotidiennement sont en pointure US 11, j’ai donc commandé la même pointure 11 chez Sorel (qui correspond à du UK 11 et EU 44) et bien elles me vont très bien, ni trop grande ni trop petites.

Si vous avez le budget, je vous les recommande fortement!

Merci de cliquer sur « utile » si je vous ai aidé dans votre choix.
