Sorel boots originated in Canada. The Sorel line was introduced in 1962 by Kaufman Rubber Co. (later known as Kaufman Footwear), and became the world's best-selling cold weather boot. In the summer of 2000, Kaufman Footwear went bankrupt and the Sorel trademark was bought by Columbia Sportswear. Following Columbia's purchase, the Sorel brand was expanded to other products, such as nylon outerwear and other work-related garments. Prior to Kaufman's bankruptcy, Sorel boots were made only in Canada.
I found that they fit true to size and they have that Barbour jacket look going on. I am hoping that they are warm and functional too! They also make slippers that look incredibly warm.
Time will tell and I suspect there's still a lot left to winter so there will be plenty of time to try them out! You can see the entire line at Sorel.com.
