Sorel 'Caribou' Boot (Women)
Waiting for more snow
Purchased with intent to use in deep snow to walk dogs, when not using snowshoes. A bit tight at opening, not real flexible, so putting on in a hurry is a bit tough. Bought them a size larger, to allow for thick socks. Wore them last weekend and they were fine, just need to break in more. Have lots of UGGs that I wear for more stylish , non-dog outings.
I wear a 9.5 so i bought a 10 , wish they had half sizes! I think a 9 would be a little to small for me. I am using them to cruse timber for a forest measurements class and they are keeping my feet nice and toasty. They are comfortable and i dont slide on the hills in the snow. They are bulky like a mans boot. Not for girls that need pretty boats but a good working boot.
Go a size down!
Great boots. These were my first pair of Sorel's so I didn't know exactly what size to get. I would definitely go a size down! I am usually size 8.5 with narrow feet. I ordered a size 9, and they were just too big. I returned them for a size 8. They are masculine but are cute with leggings/jeans.
These boots are perfect for cold weather, very cozy. As you can tell from the photo, they aren't a sleek, girly boot. They are made for the outdoors. That being said, I love them and think they can look really cute and trendy with leggings and an oversized sweater. For sizing, I'm usually an 8.0 or 8.5, and based on reading many reviews (on this site and others) I was very confused about which size I should go with. I went against the Nordstrom recommendation on this site and ordered the 9.0. Oops. I tried them on with regular/everyday socks and with the faux fur liner in and they are too big. Tried them with thick wool socks (which I don't think I would need to wear with these as the faux fur liner provides enough insulation) and they were still too big. I definitely need the 8.0. So, I would say if you are between sizes, definitely go for the smaller size.
