Women looking for winter boots to get them through big snow days or big ski trips should check out Sorel Caribou Boots or Kamik Brooklyn Boots. What’s even better is that there are lots of goodies on sale at REI and Nordstrom.com.
Sorel Caribou Boots are the classic winter boot for après ski and tromping around in the snow while the kiddies are taking snowboarding or skiing lessons. These boots are so universal, they’ve been seen in Sun Valley, Heavenly, Mt Bachelor, and Park City with both real mink and faux fur coats. Yes, these go with jeans, leggings, and anything at all. If Uggs are the boot of LA, Sorels are the boot of real outdoorsy gals.
Sorels are waterproof, warm, and have great traction with their rubber lug outsole, and they run very large. These boots are hunky chunky and heavy, but they are very stable when the rest of the world isn’t.
REI are similar to Sorels but they are a bit more lightweight, which is a big consideration if a gal is going on a winter trip and she needs to make the weight limit on an airline or she will be lugging her bags around herself. Some reviewers say these run big, some say they run small, and some say they run just right. Either ask Goldilocks or order right away before a big trip or a big snowfall. Then, exchange them for the perfect fit.
