New technology can be great, but sometimes classic is best.
That's certainly true for the Sorel Men's Caribou Boot.
An original design that dates back decades when the company created its first boot, the Caribou is the quintessential snow boot, offering everything needed to keep feet warm and dry no matter how wicked the weather.
The Caribou Boot doesn't pretend to be lightweight at more than 2 pounds, but it's rugged, with durable features to ensure it lasts for years.
It has a fully waterproof construction, including sealed seams, a nubuck leather upper and a vulcanized rubber shell.
Rated to -40 degrees, the boot provides protection even on the coldest winter nights.
It has a felt inner boot that's comfortable for long hikes and can be removed for drying (or for wear if you're lounging around your tent).
The inner boot has a Sherpa cuff to keep the elements out and for extra comfort.
It also performs well on snow and ice.
A specially designed sole provides added traction for those inevitably slippery surfaces.
Available in a range of earth-tone colors and offered in men's U.S. sizes 7 to 17.
