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!

I have been wearing Sorels since 1982. The first 2 pairs lasted at least 15 years each. I didn't get 5 years out of my most recent Chinese Caribous before the rubber cracked. I just ordered a pair of Idaho made Hoffmans. USA!

I had these boots for over a year before they had seen heavy wear in the snowy streets of Chicago. After about 10 hours of wear the rubber began cracking and it is continuing to get worse. I have been in contact with customer service several times. They even admit there is a known problem with the rubber quality yet they want me to send the boots to Oregon and be without boots in Chicago. Not something I would have contemplated until today when my left boot took on a lot of water. These boots are already unusable in water conditions and my be completely unusable by the end of the season. If I knew when I made my purchase what I know now I would have gone with a different brand.

I'd also recommend: Another brand for sure.

Boots are terrific! Very warm and great traction on ice and snow. I normally wear an 11, but ordered the 10 1/2 which fit perfectly. Even better is Zappos incredible shipping! Thanks, again, Zappos!

I bought these boots for my husband for Christmas, and they fit true to size. When I originally took them out of the box I thought for sure they would have to go back, they look huge, but they are big boots. He will use them for taking our dog for a walk in the snow, as well as he said they will be good for hunting. I have the women's version of these boots as well and love mine. They are great boots that are nice looking and true to size. I would buy these boots and shop with Zappos again.

For one winter, these were great boots. They look great, are very comfortable and warm, provide excellent traction, etc. But the rubber used is just terrible. After one winter, the rubber above my little and big toes - on both feet - began cracking. There are similar stories in reviews here, so I will add mine to the pile. My last pair of Sorel boots were given to me in my mid teens, nearly twenty years ago. They were trouble-free, and I only replaced the removable lining once in all that time. They succumbed to the same symptom as this newer version did. But after nearly two decades. Zappos, as usual, went above and beyond and replaced mine outside of the 365 days normally allotted for returns. Such service surprises me even though I've come to expect it here. As for the replacement boots, they are going on eBay. I have lost confidence in the brand. What a shame.

I'd also recommend: Hoffman
