When you hear the words Sorel boots, you probably think of this:
But what you can now also be thinking is this:
Sorel has really upped the fashion in its women’s line, bringing some serious styles to its functional and warm components. Here’s a quick look at the more fashionable lineup we carry in the shop, listed from left to right as shown above. All models are fully waterproof, with Thinsulate insulation and felt linings for warmth, and feature multidirectional rubber outsoles for great winter traction. We also carry the functional classic, the Sorel Caribou, in both men’s and women’s versions.
Sorel Joan of Arctic Boots: The full lacing, full-grain and suede leather, and faux fur cuff make this pair legit in both fashion and Arctic circles. Whether you need them for sub-zero conditions, or to just look good, Joan of Arctics offer the best of both worlds. They have a removable felt inner boot like the Caribous, which is great for drying them out. Recycled felt inner boot, 2.5 mm felt lining, $139.95 retail
Sorel Tivoli Boots: I own this Sorel boot and love the lower cut that’s just the right height in my opinion. While I love a tall boot on occasion, I prefer the lightweight feel of a smaller boot. The Sorel Tivolis offer just that. They are surprisingly lightweight (1 lb 1 oz) while being warm at the same time, kinda like a winter sneaker-boot. Houndstooth uppers give them nice style, and each pair comes with 2 lace colors so you can customize your look. 100 grams of Thinsulate insulation, $109.95 retail
Sorel Helen of Tundra II Boots: These offer the best of both worlds in my opinion: a look that’s snazzy enough to pair with a skirt, skinny jeans or leggings when dressing up, yet low-key for everyday wear too. Full-grain leather uppers with felted wool-style striping is unique and classy. 100 grams of Thinsulate insulation, 3 mm felt lining, $149.95 retail
Sorel Tofino Canvas Boots: Like a cross between the Joan of Artic and the Tivoli, these quilted beauties feature a waxed canvas upper that’s fully waterproof, plus a faux fur collar and bright red color to stop traffic. Sherpa Pile lining, $139.95 retail
We have loads more boots than just Sorel in stock too. Check out new styles in stock from The North Face Footwear too!
