I purchased this boot for my wife, who always complains of cold feet. I had a similar pair of boots a few years ago, and loved them... my feet were always toasty, and I thought for sure that this pair of boots would be great for her as well. Unfortunately, she thinks that these boots look too large on her feet, so I am going to return them. Next time I think that I'll just get her a pair of flip flops. But I would recommend these boots to any normal human being...

I love these boots but its slippery sole made it impossible for me to wear in the city. Do not wear these boots if you will be walking on slippery surfaces. I almost fell a number of times when walking in subway stations. Then I fell down a flight of stairs and broke my tailbone. All because the sole has no traction on wet surfaces. They are great for treking outside but that is it. Inside it feels like you are trying to walk on oil. That iss too bad because the rest of the boot is great.

I bought these against my dad's wishes in 1988; I was still in high school and it was a big family drama even though it was money I'd earned at my job. It's 2013 and they are still going strong. They don't get daily use as I've lived in climates that don't get a lot of snow but I've done nothing to take care of them other than cedar balls to prevent moths. To this day, every time I wear these boots in the snow I call my dad and tell him how warm and toasty I was in my "too expensive to be sensible" boots. I'd say I've gotten my money's worth of wear out of these.

Brands I'd also recommend: kamik, baffin, merrell

Let's face it - the northeast has had its worst winter in more than a decade. I ordered these boots for slogging through snow and slush, over ice, and wading through the resulting puddles brought by the occasional thaw. They are perfect--my feet have stayed warm and dry. Mind you, each of them weighs as much as a small child, and they are less than beautiful, but they've been a lifesaver this winter.

My husband has a pair of Sorel's, that I always "borrowed" when I had to go help shovel; they were more comfortable than my snow boots (another brand). I finally decided to purchase a pair of Sorel's for myself, and after a nice little snow storm, and lots of shoveling, I am very pleased with my purchase. They are comfortable to walk in, provide good traction, and kept my feet warm and dry.

I love my Sorel's. I have three pair from zappos! the Caribou is perfect height to jump into with anything from skinny jeans to ski pants with wider leg openings as the height fits under or over pant leg the boots are water resistant, super warm and 'throw back' cool.

Brands I'd also recommend: stay with sorel!

These boots are heavy duty snow boots - great for doing outside work! They keep my feet nice and warm when I am out in the Virginia mountain snow. They are nice to wear when shoveling snow because they have good grip on the bottom. I fantastic outdoor, cold weather boot! They were a little heavier than I thought, but that is what makes them both waterproof and warm. I normally wear a 7.5 but had a more comfortable fit with an 8.

I ended up going with tried and true Sorel for travel in rural Alaska. While I loved the lighter, sexier, Patagonia Lugano Lace boot, I knew I needed a super rugged boot for -40. Also, I can replace the felt lining. Bought my first pair in 1986.

These boots are the best snow boots hands down: total classic, cool styling. My feet have never been cold or wet in these despite stomping through snow piles and slush puddles. The only complaint is sizing. I'm an 8 or 8.5 usually. The 8 is just a tad too small, but the 9 is enormous. I ended up going with the 8 because I love the boots, and I just trip over myself in the 9. I wish they came in half sizes.

I've never purchased snow boots before and tried on several pairs at REI before ordering the Sorel Caribou through Zappos. I normally wear a 8.5 and have narrow feet. I purchased a 8.5 in this boot and it feels fabulous! Went snowshoeing through deep levels of snow for 3 hours and my feet were always toasty and warm. (I wore SmartWool's padded socks). The boots are a little bulky and heavy, but they did the job!

I am very pleased with these boots. They were completely comfortable and kept my feet very warm. They did not slip on my feet when I walked like to many other snow boots do.

Super comfortable and warm. Wish they were a bit cuter, but are super practical. They are a bit bulky when you walk, but the warmth makes up for it!

Very warm and comfortable! I usually wear a size 9 or 9 1/2 so I ordered a 9 and while it is a bit big, once I put on heavy socks it fits fine. They do make my feet look big, but they keep me warm and are well constructed, I foresee wearing these for a long time!

After ordering so many other styles of Sorel's and other brands I kept these. They were true to size and the lace-up option were great for my bigger calves. They also look so cute on. The other Sorel's style (I think the Torefino) was not as cool looking in person.

I just got these and they're comfy. I live in Manhattan and I know when the snow starts they will keep me protected. I am a true 7 1/2 so I ordered an 8 and they fit very well with a little wiggle room. I can even wear big cozy socks and walk well. They have a nice width on them too, I have wide feet.

I had been eyeing these boots for a couple of years and finally decided to go for it. I am very glad I did. It was a bit difficult to slip the boots on and off the first time or two that I wore them due to the boot liner. But they now slide on and off with ease but I think they are snug enough to not let in any snow or slush. Great purchase.

I live in Colorado and have multiple pairs of various snow books. These are by far my favorite when it comes to keeping my feet warm and comfort. The added bonus that the insoles come out so you can warm them before you put them on is brilliant!

Just received these, so I can't really speak about wear, I am a size 8.5 so I ordered 9's, which were much too long and wide. Exchanged for 8's which are perfect even with thick socks, although I'm not sure thick socks are req'd with the warm liner.

Very good boot. Warm and comfortable. Felt a little small. The liner will come out when you take the boots off, which would be a pain, but they slide right back in. Overall comfort and warmth make this a great boot!

I normally wear a 7.5, so I ordered an 8, which fit with thick socks. These are so warm, the thick socks are not necessary, so I ended up returning for the 7. I do wish they had the half size. These are a bit heavy, but you get used to it pretty quickly. I ordered the shale/stone color, and I think they are about as attractive as snow boots get! Also, I typically don't like removable liners because they never go back in right... didn't have that problem with these - held their shape, and slipped right back in.

I have yet to take these out but it's already love. Bought a few pairs of boots to try...many were cuter but these are the true winner! So plush, so cushy, so toasty, and so functional! They're not cute. They make me look like Bigfoot. But with a Montana winter coming up, who gives a rodent rump? They feel well constructed and I'm looking forward to getting at least 4 or 5 long snowy winters of backcountry stomping and cleaning off the car!

I ordered a size 10 which is what I regularly wear at my daughter's suggestion. They fit perfect and there is no need for heavier socks. They are so warm. A little heavy for walking compared to what I am used to but not uncomfortable.

I first saw these boots in a fashion magazine and the owner talked about how fashionable they were. Sorel was a brand with which I was not familiar - so I went online to Zappos and found them on sale. The boot is awesome. Not sure I would call it fashionable - but I'm middle aged and have probably different fashion standards. I love the boot though and will have it for easily another 30 years. It is very well made, totally waterproof and the best thing about it is the inner "bootie" that comes out. There is no zipper but the boots are very easy to put on and take off. They are warm - I highly recommend them. They were a tiny bit bigger than I thought, but I have heavy socks and they will fit inside easily. Sorel rocks the house - as does Zappos!
