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 love these boots. My last pair of similar Sorels lasted for 20 years. I ordered another make but returned them for this one because it is lighter weight. They are easy to slide into for quick runs out to the barn if you leave the laces adjusted loose. In high snowfalls, you just have to lace them tight and the trim keeps the snow out. The uppers are narrow enough to fit inside of insulated snow pants. There is room to tuck my blue jeans inside. I use them in late fall as horse trailer camping slippers because they repel the heavy dew on the grass and during the night I can put my bare feet into the soft, thick felt for quick trips outside without drenching my riding shoes. They hose off while you are standing in them which makes them an easy mud/muck boot for the slush season. I used them as a snow hiker when clearing trails in winter. They are warm and comfy and dry even with feet that perspire a lot. I am an exact size 9.5 and ordered a 9.0 after reading reviews that they run large. I have to return them for a size 10 because my toes hit the front in light hiking socks. So, I don't agree that they run large. Give yourself plenty of toe room so that you can wear them loose most of the time!

I think the Sorel Caribou is the best cold weather snow boot out there. These boots will really keep your feet warm (ask the guys working at ski resorts who are loading you onto the chairlift). Great grippy soles. Lace 'em up right and no snow gets in. Perfect for shoveling snow, if you have to do it! Not great for walking, however, don't try to take a hike in them.

This is a great boot. It's very comfortable. It's very clunky. I'm usually between a size 8 and 9. I purchased a size 9 - they are big with the lining in. I feel as though if I had purchased the 8 - they would have been too small to wear with thick socks and the lining. Without the lining, the size 8 would have been perfect. In conclusion - these need to be made in half sizes.

I'd also recommend: LL BEAN
