It snows in Colorado until April any given year. That means boots are a fixture in your wardrobe for another 3.5 months. In that case wear the brand that is synonymous with winter: SOREL.
SOREL was founded in 1962 in Canada and made a name for itself through its robust, waterproof, warm snow boots. SOREL combines felt, wool, premium leather, and expert construction to make a resilient line of footwear for people who have to go out and about in the cold, winter, weather.
In addition to providing high-quality footwear, this company prides itself on maintaining high, ethical standards and sustainable manufacturing processes. They require partner companies to keep the same, stringent code of ethics, and are vehemently against forced labor or child labor. Simply put, SOREL provides quality footwear crafted with high integrity.
SOREL is most notably known for snow-boots. The original boot, the Caribou Buff, is the mid-calf-height, beige boot that put the company on the map. It set the standard for all the other boots SOREL would ever make: waterproof and warm. The Caribou Buff comes in both men’s and women’s sizes and is one of the most functional snow boots around.
Over 50 years, SOREL has hardly been lazy, continuing to developed its product line to incorporate more fashionable, diverse footwear. For example, the Conquest Carly is a waterproof boot that comes to just below the knee. It has a slight heel for a touch of functional fashion
and a lace up front for the perfect fit every time.
For winter-day wear, the Glacy Explorer Shortie is a great boot, ideal for sledding or shoveling the driveway. It is waterproof and has a removable footbed – designed for everyday wear and all-day comfort.
For deeper drifts, the Glacy Explorer is the boot you want. The high rise on the boot keeps the snow at bay while the lace up front make sure you have a custom fit for every winter activity. As with all of SOREL’s boots, the Glacy Explorer is waterproof, and the full fleece lining provides exceptional insulation.
For men seeking a waterproof boot to wear hiking or into the office, the Ankeny Mid Hiker is perfect. It has the high ankle to keep the snow out of your socks and the waterproof durability required of a typical hiking boot. That is all coupled with a removable footbed to ensure the highest level of comfort.
True to SOREL’s goal of keeping your feet warm and dry at all times, SOREL doesn’t just sell snowboots. SOREL also makes slippers. The Tremblant Blanket or the Campus Slipper are perfect for wearing around the house when you aren’t out braving the weather.
SOREL offers a variety of shoes, slippers, and boots to meet just about every winter-weather need. Visit Dardanos storefront on South Colorado Boulevard just north of the Colorado Blvd. exit on I-25.
