I live in Minnesota and have had a pair of Sorels for the last 10 years. The only problem is finding replacement liners. I have been out in weather that is -30 with a 40 MPH wind, and my feet were the warmest part of my body. Wore them while I was working outdoors in a lumberyard and was never cold. Just need to have a heavy wool sock on. Dress for the weather, not the style.

Okay! For my first pair of snow boots I decided to go with the Caribou. I must say the look good, but they are poorly made! The first pair I ordered had the biggest air pocket in the sole of the left boot so I called Zappos and they immediately send me a second pair. Turns out the second pair had the same problem only a bigger hole in the sole of the left shoe! If you were to go out in the slush and snow with Caribous, I know they will eventually fall apart fall and soak your feet. There are some reviews out there on how flawed the are and even pictures of people pressing the water out of their boots. If you ever decide to get a pair: Look for a small hole on the side of the of the soles of both shoes just to be safe. Also listen for hissing noises coming from your boots. If you notice this immediately contact Sorel and let them know that there is a serious flaw with their boots! Try not to get pissed when talking to customer service because they don't know what's going on; it's the CEOs that need to tighten up!

Awesome boot for the snow. It's probably true to size. I'm a size 10 (boots typically 10.5), and I got the 11. It's very comfortable, but very roomy. Would consider 10, but depends on how you like the feel.

I recently ordered these boots for my husband for a trip to Colorado. He absolutely loves them. His feet stayed warm even while walking through snow. He wears a 13 in other shoes, and that is the size we ordered. They fit very true to size, unlike the North Face boots that we had to return because they ran small. Highly recommend this product!

I purchased a pair of Caribous 22 years ago...they have just worn out. My son has gone through several pairs of snowboots working his Snow Plowing business, complaining that his feet were cold. I told him he should have got Sorels. "But Mom then I would look just like you." Well, surprised him with a pair as a gift. He loves his new Toasty toes inside his Sorel boots. "Should have gotten them sooner." As far as this pair lasting 20+ years like my first pair, we'll have to see if the integrity has remained since Sorel has changed manufacturing from Canada to China.

They fit great. The weather has been too mild this year to be able to put these to the test but I liked them when I tried them on. Easy on, easy off, comfortable and warm. Sizing is good, too.

Very nice boot. I work outside so dry/warm boots are really important. I have been wearing this type of boot for about 20 years, so I know exactly what to expect in this type of boot, and these are just great! Have no hesitation in buying these boots!

I bought these boots for my son who is a HS senior. He wears a 12.5 or 13 and I ordered both the 12 and the 13. His toes were touching the front of the 12s so we returned those and kept the 13. They are a great boot - comfortable, warm and "stylish" for the kids. He has a narrow foot so he's got a lot wiggle room around the sides but he swears they're not hard to keep on though they are a little heavy.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrell, Keen, Sanita, Dansko

I recently moved to Wisconsin and needed something to keep my feet warm. These boots are great for shoveling snow or tailgating at Lambeau in the middle of winter. I highly recommend these boots to anyone, and the removable insole allows you to dry the boot quickly.

Zappos is unbelievable. Thanks to them Christmas shopping was a breeze this year. I ordered these in the wrong size, called them up and the girl who processed the exchange was the best! The right size arrived at my house the next day! You can not go wrong with Zappos. They provide the best service online!

I got my first pair Sorels in 1977 and they have served me well ever since while snow shoeing, snowmobiling, and hiking. My wife and I decided to do some dog sledding in northern MN over the holidays and I figured I had better update my 34 year old boots (they were on their 5th or 6th set of felt liners). I bought these Sorel Caribou boots and they are even better than my 34 year old originals. They are warm, comfortable, and the lacing system is much nicer than on my old Sorels. I recommend these boots for your northern adventures.

The best part of these boots is there are only 4 loops to tie and loosen them; ergo, allowing easy on and easy off.

I bought these boots for my son who is away at school and he really likes them. It is just beginning to snow so he hasn't put them to the real test yet but he said the times he has worn them they are warm and comfortable, and keep his feet dry.

It looks great and keeps your feet nice and toasty. I normally wear it in the snow when I go skiing. It grips great on snow, but it's not so great on icy pavement/wet pavement. It's easy to get into, but a bit tricky to pull your foot back out. I would get another pair!

These are the best. Do you live or spend time in a place with snow on the ground? This is the gold standard boot for that. I wouldn't wear any other.

These boots feel great, now that I have the right size. Some reviewers stated that these felt a half size larger than listed. I wear a 9.5, and the 9 was way too tight. The 10 was perfect. I would recommend trying these on somewhere first if you can. It is hard to get my feet into these boots, and getting them out can be just as hard. I hope as the years go on that they will loosen up a bit. But, once they are on and I am out stomping in the snow, they are amazing.
