Sorel Caribou Leather Boots (old but still available here)
Footie season is in full flow and this week, I decided to go for a little bit of lumberjack chic whilst cheering the little one on. The old parka came out, the Sorels came out and I was as snug as a bug in an old parka and a pair of Sorels.
And we won! Hoorah!
I do get quite a few queries about the Sorels and whether they are worth the money and true to size and everything. I did a post on them when I first got them here and I have to say, having had them through a couple of winters - I wouldn't be without. However, they are not the cheapest or the lightest boots on the block so I've had a scout round to see what other options there might be. I have included a few pairs of Sorels in there (I do like the styling) and a good dupe for around £50.
There is 30% off these boots this weekend. These are a great looking alternative to the Sorels I have and considerably lighter. I did have a lovely reader get in touch with me to say that she had tried the Sorels but they weren't for her but the Crocs versions were a surprise hit. And I have to say, I did do a double take when I saw these in a store last year and had to nip in to look at them properly. They are really nice.
These are the nubuck leather version of the ones I have.
Quite utilitarian in design and reasonably priced. Insulated and waterproof - should do the job nicely.
Because I know there will be a few of you out there who will love the pom pom details and the ivory shade.
Are these not the most fabulous dupe of the Sorel Caribous? And at half the price too.
In anthracite. With tan trims. Class.
The one thing to notice with all these - the front of the toe is well protected in rubber. I've walked through "dewy" fields many a time to find my regular leather boots getting soaked through at the toes, so the rubber protection at the front is a godsend in my eyes. You also need thick soles - protection from the cold cold damp ground!
