In our opinion, there’s nothing better than a shoe that’s comfortable, versatile, and good-looking, too. Enter: Sorel footwear, the waterproof, insulated boots you’re going to live in this winter.
As temperatures drop and the majority of the sidewalk turns to sludge, a heavy, treaded boot is a must-have in every working girl’s closet. Accented by thick laces, sturdy D-rings, and rubber midsoles, Sorel offers up a practical boot with seriously stylish flair.
Canada-born in 1962, Sorel is a high-quality footwear company known for providing warmth and sturdy craftsmanship. Functional and chic, Sorel’s line of winter boots for men and women is loaded with classic and edgy elements (think buckle accents, pops of color, and lots of lace-up detailing). The brand combines felt, wool, and premium leather with a typically waterproof construction to create a shoe that’s perfect for people who aren’t afraid to get their boots dirty.
Already adored in Canada, it’s that duality of function and style that is bound to make them a bonafide winter staple in the States.
It’s all in the details. The microfleece lining, 100g insulation, and leather overlays are going to keep you warm while the long black laces, quilted upper, and faux fur trim will be the statement piece in any snow bunny ensemble.
Just because you’re trying to stay warm, doesn’t mean you can’t look cute. Pair your boots with dark skinnies or leather leggings and a flannel shirt and parka. Our motto? Layer up on fashion-forward pieces and you won’t freeze!
For fashion blogger Grasie Mercedes of Style Me Grasie, wearing layers and boots is her winter go-to.
“I’m super into these boots from Sorel,” Grasie says. “Because they are waterproof and very cool looking; an awesome hybrid between a hiking boot and a stylish wedge.”
